Don't slam the lan!
(I know it doesn't make sense!!!)
So you'll be all over windows 10 update sharing mechanism then...
Thought about configuring the office machines to come to life and update themselves in the middle of the night?
That's how my home win 7 box does it. The how I used to have my home box configured till MS started sneaking in telemetry with every update....
Their tax contribution isn't "orders of magnitude greater" at all. It's a tiny fraction of the money they make. The tax system works on percentages, those that earn more are supposed to contribute more.
A bunch of selfish greedy people leaving the country isn't a bad thing. The idea that industry and business will stop if they leave is laughable.
What are you made of jake? That is the single most stupid argument for meat eating that exists, unless you're a cannibal.
If only PETA were the only terrorists in the world. The other ones try to kill people.
What do you mean by "properly coded" Andrew? The article mentiones either using an Android API or the Google Play one. Is it wrong? Is the Android one deprecated in favour of the proprieatary one? Because to me it sounds like the proper way would be to use the Android one, avoiding a dependency on Google. Surely that gives you wider coverage (of devices) and more resilience (not dependant on a third party).
With a monopoly sized install base. Someone have a word with the EU quick before we leave!!
They own that thing you built, the internet.
That's strange. That's how I get to windows updates on my Win 8.1 laptop, just type "UPDA" and it's top of the list.
How did Google say to do it?
And doesn't mention which IDE they use. I asked about this recently on another thread and got very poor responses, none of which suggested a better IDE. So gerdesj, any idea what IDE they use and how it's better than VS?
Why hide your identity if you're so confident of your abilities?
AC is for business sensitive posting. It's not really appropriate if all you have to say is "I code better than you" or "you're old fashioned".....
Put a name to your posts or fuck off.
I know that all us super tech heads just love fucking around installing OSs, but most consumers would see a pc with no operating system as being like a car with no motor or a fridge with no door.
Ignoring all pull requests from that person? Or is that too simple?
I haven't forgotten that. I was replying to the OP who afaik wasn't talking about Linus.
Clearly Linux is a successful project. The question of whether Linus' personality is a help or a hindrance to the project is one that the devotees wont contemplate. The rest of us are allowed to wonder if a more mature approach to managing the project would make it better.
And the only way to do that is abuse? Nonsense. A clear "That's not going in, and here's why" would work better in most cases.
The choice isn't "compromise or be a dick", it's "don't pull with a simple explanation or don't pull with an abusive rant".
How many good engineers don't even think about contributing because of his childish outbursts?
Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
BURN THE HERETIC!!!!!
That's not a good attitude. If I fuck up I expect to be told to fix it. Anything beyond that is not acceptable in a work environment. If someone repeatedly fucks up then take them off the project.
Abuse is not an appropriate response from someone in a position of authority. Any manager trying that shit with me will get very short shrift.
>> slammed by an independent review as at best incompetent and at worst deliberately mendacious. <<
Doesn't sound like clear evidence of corruption, bit too vague for that.
Of the USA. There are some other countries using the internet too.
Hiding your posting history because....?
We are all in agreement then? The answer is Linux, irrespective of the question?
we'd see some progress if company stocks got whacked every time someone released fictional security warnings.
17 upvotes for whataboutery? Nice critical thinking guys!!
If the only argument for your candidate is that they aren't the other candidate you don't have a good candidate.
Is he ever going to release his tax returns?
Not at all. Religion is a handy way to try and spread division, but there are plenty of non-religious nut-jobs around.
Foreign policy, by which I mean invading foreign nations, is surely as much to blame. Greed is behind a lot of our bad policy desicions.
How would you feel if another country's military arrived and destroyed our government? What steps would seem reasonable in retaliation?
ChromeOS is garbage!!
Web apps are cross platform by definition....
Only the Stallone one is a painful memory. The recent one is much more Dreddlike, he doesn't snog Anderson for a start!
Google claimed Android was only a mobile OS and that was one of the reasons they won the previous case. It's in the article:
Yesterday's courtroom arguments hinged around a peculiar legal argument Google had made in the retrial. Google had argued that the Java infringements only concerned smartphones – because Android was a smartphone system. This was an odd argument to make, since the code was copied from Java SE – basically, desktop Java – not the mobile edition, Java ME.
Oracle argues that when Google announced its Android app runtime for Chromebooks at this year's I/O developer conference, Google had undermined its own argument. In other words, Google had indicated that Android and its rip off of Oracle's copyright went beyond phones and tablets.
Of course! Google did it for our own good! How kind of them.
No it doesn't. Oracle don't want Google to change Android, they want them to pay for copying Java interfaces.
I quite like it. I find it's use of words makes it more easily readable. The editor/debugger makes working with it a lot easier than working with a batch file.
If you want to work here, don't get caught.
Pity it's noscript is so cakey.
Now this is targetted advertising I can live with. The site owner vetting the ads and ensuring they are just static images and hosting them locally. Nice!
It's in Bootnotes.
Whereas a crap connection isn't an issue for peer to peer skype?
As in install W10 on you Windows Phone (7, 8, 8.1) device. Not as in "replace the device".
A chorlton of work? A chip ton of work?
It's ok to swear on here you know! Might help you vent a little (more)....
"When Microsoft changed things up with the new ribbon interface in Office 2007, customers got a nasty shock and people clung to the ageing versions of their favourite suite."
That's some top quality advertising for Office 2003.
No woz! Sounds like a good purchase though I'm not sure what macs're like for Windows use (had to use a mac keyboard recently and it drove me to disruption!!) My boss at my old place used to swear by Macs in terms of them being robust machines so hopefully you'll get good use out of it!
Good old John Lewis though! Full refund over a year after purchase is sweet!
Dunno about making you an idiot, that depends why you bought it and what it cost you, but it sounds like you have difficulty spotting a joke.
Enjoy your laptop!
When I buy stuff online I expect https. When I read the news I don't care if it's http.
Is the Reg shop http?
Works for Apple.......
Not if the posters on here are anything to go by.
You're saying that Chrome did something wrong?
Wow. Downvotes incoming.....
...."for the life of the device" compared to what they did before, which was providing updates for the supported life of the OS?
The "innovation" is the bit where they don't market a new versions of the OS, just tweak 10. Previously they'd release a new version of Windows every couple of years. It's pretty straightforward.
Compared to Android offering updates "for the life of the device" is innovative.
Will it? What makes you believe that?
This will never be an alternative to a password, it's an alternative to a user name. That's the fundamental problem with this approach.
