it means Linus thinks he won.
When Microsoft make Windows a Linux distro, then he'll have a point.
The software that homes and businesses want just isn't there. Don't say LibreOffice. It looks like a 1998 shareware application.
But so what? The desktop is not the be all and end all like it once was.
As an OS it was very slick. Of the two 'walled garden' phone operating systems, I'd take it over Apple's Fisher-Price UI any day.
What killed it for me was app support. Not necessarily your Facebooks et al, but 'mid range' apps. Your local transport provider's real time updates app. Your local gym chain fitness class booking app. They all have iOS and Android versions, but never Windows.
Isn't that a LibreOffice problem?
... wait until big patch 1 at the earliest.
so don't feel bad.
since even if we weren't a very long way from it being realistic technically, it's solving a problem that doesn't exist.
there is no AI
Our organisation is on it. Around 10k employees in all corners of the globe.
There are some things that are easier with a GUI and some things that are easier with a CLI, world withoud end, amen.
they go and recover them?
I'll crowdfund you.
AND I WANT IT.
Chrome of course pure as the driven snow in this respect.
It's not like it's some new technology at this stage. Gouging.
Is it even possible for tape backup?
has now reached Pulling Spurious Claims Out Of Your Arse Station.
and pass it off as AI these days, it would seem.
It has 'programmes'.
that corporates still use SAP.
It hasn't bloody arrived yet.
I must look up what's happening with the Rossi E-CAT contraption these days, for a laugh.
"across every possible combinations of things?"
These are Apple devices. A fairly limited selection of fixed platforms and OS version combinations, not Android where world+dog has a device and their own jimmied version of the OS.
Therefore surely not beyond Apple to test in-house.
They're for targeted advertising.
Please get off this 'AI' cut & paste bandwagon. There is no AI. There is nothing even in the ballpark.
... however they are unlikely ever to be enforced, the recent palaver was a case of someone highlighting the absurdity of it to try and shame the government into action. The police demonstrably DGAF.
Even less likely to ever appear in mass adoption than self-driving cars. Most people can't drive properly, why would you want them flying?
Any language that needs the like of TypeScript or CoffeeScript to impose some readability and sanity on it is probably not the best choice for an introductory programming course.
If nothing else it should be lauded for technical accuracy and restraining itself from the usual OVERRIDE SECRET PASSWORD nonsense.
with your brain.
is a day that I'm happy.
Boo hoo. How often do you install an IDE like this? Is it that much of an issue?
says more about Node than anything else.
"Colour screen with a few more pixels, modern ARM processor, decent chunk of memory, USB, WiFi, maybe a 4G modem, SD slot"
"keep the thing running for a week on a pair of AAs"
when it's nothing of the sort. Just like those 'Ronnie James Dio lives again!' things you see at gigs which also talks shite about holograms when it's just an updated version of a 150 year old stage magic illusion called Pepper's Ghost.
substitute the term 'bandwagon-jumping bullshit'.
big bad Microsoft. Get over it.
I miss Captain Cyborg.
No other ecosystem ever changes of course.
As a stupid term it's up there with 'millennial'.
1. We can't even keep things that are supposed to be on the internet secure.
2. Most applications of it are stupid and pointless.
3. It's largely just another data-slurping and ad-vectoring mechanism.
That's like saying they invented fast cars. It's the car that's important. And again, that comes under 'brilliant design applied to existing concept'.
I used the first Macs in college when the alternative was Nimbus PC's *gak* and VT100 VAX terminals. So I'm glad they did.
They don't invent much, really. If anything. They do apply brilliant design and marketing to things that already exist though and make your granny want one.
Some sense being spoken about the avalanche of bullshit where pattern recognition etc gets pimped as artificial intelligence.
We'll see about that ...
... largely flim-flam that will never work in most real world applications.
Because sometimes it's enough for something to look cool, that's why.
... there's also Cmder.
