Is 'clock' still in? How about edlin and edit?
If you pay two hundred Dollars extra, you get a magnetic attachment with a microphone device.
A microphone would surely be useful for making virtual phone calls, but I wonder what if a little speaker comes among the essentials, the other extras or will not be available until version 2.
"The last and only time I had gigs using the same operating system, database, or compiler was in college"
In my case, that was when I worked at Apple Computer. Our University had very diverse computing resources; it even built it's own micros before the invasion of the IBM PC.
Why not opt for that dependable workhorse, the old AS/400, err System i, where the Operating System and the database are integrated into an easy-to-manage system, just like Windows Longhorn?
Now we are curious about the performance of MS SQL on W2016, MS SQL onLinux, MariaDB, Postgres, Oracle on Linux, Oracle on Solaris, IBM on System/Z.
The Z14 is the best IBM mainframe ever just like '10' is supposed to be the best version of Windows, but hard and comparable numbers are hard to come by. Guess old COBOL code is more efficient than .NET.
170 cores, 32 TB of main memory, those figures resemble a high-end PC.
Compare that to $ 50,000 for a measly Apple I.
May also be written as khat, used as a drug in the horn of African and the Arabian peninsula.
That would be a C:\ battery.
....dows that mean all customers must upgrade to an XBOX 365?
(nice cartoon in Dutch newspaper)
Read the article again: the software will be upgraded by the time the ship becomes operational. I suppose her majesty will be running Vista by then. How operationl will those JSF fighters be in 2020?
Guess that'll show the Brusselcrats who rule the waves.
Will the QE on her maiden voyage be piloted by E.R. a.k.a. H.M. Q.E.II?
Buy six, that makes for a nice 6480 (H) by 3840 (V) pixel resolution or 27:16 aspect ratio :-(
You had SNA, JCL and Rexx. Enough to turn anyone into a terrorist.
Why have so few (attempted) attacks been blamed on the El Reg community?
A dram apparantly mean an eigth part of a fluid once, but down here we think of whisky.
ARM:: Arm Runs Microsoft (or maybe Alternative Run-time 4 Metro)
(Intel shares dropping....)
How about Intel Xeon Itanic, Intel Xeon ARMageddon, Intel Xeon Risk 906 and Intel Xeon Risk 432?
Holland celebrates Kingsday today, to remember us that the country has been a member of the European Union since early 1940. The Kings speech to parliament is actually wriitten by the cabinet of ministers, but he is allowed to author his own Christmas speech, which he carefully composes to avoid elements that might annoy the neo-nazi party.
The compute power of a single student with an abacus rather than a GPU barely reaches 1.0 FLOPS.
It's about time for the nationals of the European continent to exit the Kingdom Union.
The Java programming language is complex and takes long to completely learn by heart, when HTML is the most popular language for e-mail and web pages.
1,6 % growth? When the industry needs at least 15 % annual sales growth to keep from collapsing.
Now companies will need three teams of system administrators: let's say the A team starts testing the 201704 release for nine months, performs a migration in three months and supports its users for six months, while the B team waits for the 201710 upgrade and a year after the A team, the C team starts testing the 201804 version, when the A team takes a short holiday before tackling the 201810 release, etc.
Since they are only minor updates, 12 months for testing and migration should suffice.
Redmond is silently liquidating WIndows 10 to replace it with something called 'creator's update'.
I wonder if 'Vista is now officially dead' means something changed in comparison to last year or so and if other Windozes are more alive in one way or another. If Vista is 'work in progress', does that mean work on it proceedes no longer?
The press has told us that Vista was full of problems, and 7 was much more popular, but apparently only the version number changed to something more computable.
How much longer must the captive fangirls wait for their promised Windows Longhorn?
Wikipedia claims there is a fix for this problem:
You just need to uninstall Internet Explorer.That should deal with the application/HTA problem. Uninstalling MS Office might also offer some help against macro viruses.
"There are very clear definitions of what is legal and what is not legal in Germany."
Yes, there are. The proposed law makes it illegal (for a network operator) to publish illegal content. 'Strafbar' means 'punishable', which implies that the content and the creator may not have been convicted themselves. Fines of up to 50 Million Euroquid are way out of proportion.
"Books like My Struggle (Mein Kampf) are illegal in Germany.".
No. The copyright to Mein Kampf was owned by the state of Bavaria, which did not publish the book, but it expired in 2015, putting the book into the public domain. A new scholarly edition has since been published. The same applies to the Dutch translation.
Better hurry that Brexit before Reg staff end up in Siberian camps.
How many Cruise Missiles does the German Kanzler have?
A century after its foundation, the Fokker company still manufactures components for airplanes like the JSF, whilst the government is buying a new Boeing (presumably named Air Farce One ('Kluchtmacht' in Dutch)).
Remember that the counry was neutral in WW I, so Fokker made much money in Germany.
Do teens really find Apple cool? YouTube? Wall Street Journal? How does El Reg stack up against those old-skool brands?
The Andrew File System belongs to the class of network file systems and is popular in academic circles?
The crazy little thing called web consists of thet HTTP protocol and the HTML markup language. A browser like Lynx is an interactive tool in the sense that the user supplies an 'URL' and the browser decodes and sneds it to a server, and the server sends a reply that usually contains some HTML. The user wats & waits & waits. Eventually the data have arrived and the browswer displays the text. This interactivity is a huge waste of time and bandwitdth, compared to smarter protocols. Why not send a request to a server, which forwards it to another server, and eventually returns the HTML, perhaps in an e-mail message.
Consider that all the Mozilla project has to do is to remove excessive features from the Netscape browser and fix the bugs in the remaining code....
"Files needed for important tasks are immediately recognised and accelerated".
I suppose that the optane can recognise the stars on bars on the user's uniform and will generally accelarate a general's files generously, give a major's files a major boost, but won't blow off a captain's cap.
A few years ago the Dutch pollster and innovator Maurice de Hond started a chain of Steve Jobs primary schools, where the kids were taught individually relying heavily on iPads. These schools have now proven to be unsustainable.
Oh Mighty Gates? Isn't that the name of the long-term support version of Ubuntu??
P.S. Now where can I download the source code?
That sounds like 'Closed Source' to me:-(
NATO member Holland currently has 2 F35-A aircraft and 0 carrier ships. Maybe they could hitchhike with their British brethren.
Does Jim Coder now get to to choose between compling application for x86/Win32, x86_64/Win64, x86/Linux, x86_64/LInux, ARM32/Win32, ARM64/Win64, ARM64/Linux (Raspberry PI)??
So we are shown a box where most of the space has been dedicated to eight SATAN drives, which are blown onto by six fans, so that none of the air flow reaches the processor. Nor do I see any PCI slots.
Linux has a market share of 2 % on desktops (that's literally millions of 'computers'), a very competitive market share in servers, a majority in embedded devices, some 81 % of smartphones and over 99 % of all supercomputers.
Many perfectly good PC components and peripherals have gone to garbage dumps due to lousy or missing dirvers.
If a flame erupt from the device, that shall indicate you're fired.
Microsoft loves Linux so much it won't share it with the barbarians in Munich.
The most vexing problem with Cygwin is the inability to open a file that is currently open by another process i.e. opening a file locks it.
....but if the Brexit goes ahead, 'our' could refer to two different countries.
Hollanders opine that Albion got its just in deserts in 1667 for the destruction it wrought on the Dutch fleet in 1666.
Captain Rude Lubbers is coming for your rusty Iron Lady.
Annual revenue growth down to measly 10 %. More layoffs soon to follow.
Hear, hear! The reason for switching to Linux is that the cost of support, maintenance, and training is much lower.
The defendants are proposing that Munich should support both Windows and Limux, which is easily the most expensive option. (Unless Redmond offers Windows 10 with a Linux subsystem that is fully interoperable with Limux).
Microsoft must have bribed the lord mayor.
"Phwoar, leather trousers, Maggie never wore those."
...and anyway, if she did, we would be required to deny it.
....after 'Destroy All Monsters' posted dirty word.
