"I would've died of laughter seeing the Windows computer infect the alien computer..."
To be fair, it was a Mac...(Powerbook 5300 sez Goog.)

"...Presumably you can still install CutePDF writer"
Is it in the Store?
Yes, all 4 of them are irate, and another 5 have switched to OS276.

'Microsoft ate my homework, Miss!'
Wows! Will the clown car ever empty?
"What is it with bellends and rings?

"...more sophisticated users won't use it anyway
"Good, then can we talk about not being able to install Firefox on my Chromebook?"
Can't find out how to do it on Bing? Oh dear.
"How stupid does someone have to be?"
So that's what the 'S' is for!
Only MS could achieve this.
"...protocol code should be written by an FSM writing tool. "
All hail His Spaghetti Code!
"...keeping compatibility so one person can still use the WIN16 program they wrote to do their taxes twenty years ago, on Win10."
You'd think MS execs could afford a Quickbooks license...
"Did anyone else think of the saying, "stick like sh!t to a blanket" - could be some issues."
Wouldn't wipe my arse on it...
"I see no simple global admin.
I see no simple set / install and configure.
I see no integration with Office 365"
And so, on to the bad points?
Can they run ChromeOS?
I thought this might happen, so when LI was gobbled up, I first deleted all info from my profile, saved it, put in a load of old bollox, saved it, deleted it, saved it, changed the password and then closed the account.
OK so far ...
Thanks El Reg!

If only you could print from a Chromebook directly... oh wait- you can.

Isn't he after the Moon?
"... as if we were not quite human. We are."
...not quite human? Siamese, if you please? Devo?
"Oh, look - a new meaning for the word bless ...."

An old meaning, perhaps, but with the twist that the blood has been digested first...
"So the government is filled with Gumbys?"
Yes- oddly true, whoever gets in.
You forgot this --->
Sorry, Apple and Microsoft are both fighting after that name.

"As we all know, virtualization has overhead upwards of 30%."
Only when running Oracle.
"The response from MS clearly states that they have queued it for a later fix, so not exactly dismissing the report."

You should stay to the Up, except when passing on the Leght- except when manoevering Topwards, in which case yaw to the Rieft.
Down is generally bad.
Don't forget. Speed up to slow down!
It died years ago.
"...in the hands of a few programmers who have no accountability for the decisions that they're making,"
"in the hands of a few politicians who have no accountability for the decisions that they're making,"
