Does it support plugins and user exits?
I loved XP. I liked W7 a lot. I was prepared to live with W8 once I added the start button back to make it like W7. Unfortunately my son accidentally allowed the PC to upgrade to W10 when he was using the PC. I just can't get on with it anymore. I hate the start menu and it's covered in spyware by many accounts. Everything seems so dumbed down that I prefer using my tablet. Even if I re-install W8 it will nag me to death to upgrade.
The risky thing for MS is that many of us no longer play games on the PC. I've been an on-and-off Linux user for many years but couldn't move away from Windows because of the need for games. But I don't play them anymore; it's been years. With such a choice of Linux distro's I've found several that give me just what I'm looking for. I'll live with W10 so my son can play the occasional game himself. But I think I'm just going to dual boot into Linux as my main desktop now. Windows feels too cumbersome and feels like it gets in the way. All I want is a simple desktop.
Down with this sort of thing.
I have great memories of watching the Tomorrow People. I wish someone would remake Sapphire and Steel too.
I'm loving the Sapphire and Steel reference :)
I was a long standing Ubuntu user who had previously come from RH and later Suse (which I voluntarily paid for). But Unity killed Ubuntu for me. I tried to like it. I really did. But eventually I gave up and moved to Mint Cinnamon which I am very happy with. As it matures I'll probably go with the Debian version of it.
I have so many happy memories of Joe 90, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds and Space 1999 from my childhood on Saturday mornings.
5-4-3-2-1 Thunderbirds are gone! :(
Back in the late 90s I sent my first mobile email from a train using a Revo, hooked up to my Nokia 8210 phone over infrared. Good times.
Maybe the network server was off with stress like their boss?
No-one would have believed, in the early years of the twenty first century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed we were being scrutinised as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even concidered the possability of life on other planets. And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immesurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly but surely, they drew their plans against us.
I've had absolutely awful covereage recently. I work in London and a data connection here is abysmal. More often than not it simply won't work. Call quality around Canary Wharf is dire and in many cases, despite several bars, I can't get the call to connect. Others calling me usually drop to voicemail.
I'm only still on O2 because several family members are and therefore it is cheaper for them to call me. But in all honesty they usually end up calling my work mobile (on Vodafone) to get hold of me and so end up paying a higher rate for the call anyway.
It's fairly obvious that all those iPhone users are going to use a lot of data. I'm very much on the verge of giving up on O2 and moving to another provider.
No mention of MySQL?
I wonder how long it will be before various government agencies force cloud providers into handing over various data held on behalf of their customers, a little like they do with emails, etc, now.
I was holding out for this. But I'm not paying those prices, especially on an 18 or 24 month contract. Also the data coverage on O2 seems to suck where I live and work. So I'll probably be going elsewhere when I renew.
Hold on, almost all new IT jobs are going offshore or onshore to Indian nationals. So all we will do is boost the economy of India. Aint this gummnt great, sigh...
If this is a success then the general public won't really associate it with Linux. For example, most users of Android phones don't care or realise that the underlying code is Linux. But what I think this will do is encourage hardware manufacturers to release drivers for Chrome OS / Linux. For example, we could start to see more printer drivers released, and so on.
If they replace their Windows machines with Linux they could save on all that license cost and keep the staff.
let's hope the warships work on years with a Julian date of 366?
