If they're anything like us, the aliens would just look for somewhere new to move to and screw up.
"...most, outside the US and the small world of fixie riders,.. "
Oddly outside of the US most people spell it Backpedalling which is correct as it has to do with feet not selling tat. However in the case of MS, peddling is probably right here...

"It is not indefinite - RIPA act is quite specific. 5 years per offense if memory serves me right."

Egg curry for supper again?
"...every chemical in that system will inevitably become part of that environment."
That's why the space toilets took so long to perfect...
"Like in Star Trek: The Wrath of Kahn..."
Can't wait for the 3D remake - where Kirk exploits the 4th dimension!
Oh wait - isn't that what the bad Romulans did in the reboot..?
Space is hard. Fictional space doubly so...
"Cortana wakes up and starts recording when I say "toilet paper"."
and states: "Wiping Windows 10..."
...AND ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE.
Aha! Voda don't need to offset tax- the Govt would end up paying them!
We just need common sense, thought and level heads. But I think all of those things are vanishing in Redmond, and their apologists.
"I'm trying to think of a situation where the pressure increases inside a space suit."
There's usually an accompanying smell...
"Is it dio-design or diode-sign or even di-ode-sign? Just wondered, whilst you're here.
My money is on dio-des-ign ...
""Um when they march with brown shorts and ware swastika what do call them ?""
How about an air-strike?

"Also where are you getting Exocets for €100K? They're normally about €3M."
"Set up a shadow file system in the registry"
"Set up a shadow file system in SystemD"

Just a little one.

Sarcastic propellers overhead.
"I would of thought that was a major weak spot."
Second only to the grammar that has been crushed...
We will be free of the CRAPWARE that is called Windows.
MSFT is the only OS supplier than doesn't create profitable demand and writes and releases malware into the wild.
""Microsoft Surface Pro is designed and built with performance and reliability in mind,""
Just what they keep saying about their OS too...
Where's the burning pants icon?
"who are happy to pen test your network for peanuts."
Multitasking whilst writing Shakespeare?
Third attempt: 12 Million Light Years.
(Sorry El Reg- couldn't resist...)

Brown trousers are still at the dry-cleaners...

Or, I hate to say it - Windows To Go...

'911 prices, 911 bodywork, lame horse.'
(Nothing wrong with the air-cooled Beetle engine- the 911 has a 6 cylinder version.)
"So show me a OS that does that?"
You keep saying that, over and over, and yet the Windows turd remains unpolished.
"Bridge and battle bridge to allow for saucer detachment."
...Lest the cup is destroyed in action.
It is a British ship...
"I'm sure your going to get a knock at your door ..lay face down arms spread and no sudden movements .."
Sir, can you put your hands in the yellow circles, please?
But I'm totally unqualified in every way.
Sounds like 'a great opportunity for the right candidate' though.
Good lUck, Chinese astroboffins!
A product that is a Transparent Ripoff...
"...he could of done a 100 different things"
No. Words have consequences. And grammar.

Now customers can get their work finished whilst the MS cloud is still up.
The Encryption Ashes, eh? I think we have a new ElReg passtime to keep an eye on!
