I've said it multiple times, If MS wants to do you in the rear, they ask and people just assume the position.
Anything to avoid having to think.
Paid £150 for it, runs like a dream, unlooked boot loader and customized to liking.
The only concern is if Xiaomi is going to start charging proper UK prices now that they're launching officially.
When MS open sources anything of relevance no strings attached.
Just tried and it is easy.
Select an area using any of the select tools, area, rectangle, oval, etc.
On the Edit menu, select copy,
Click on the pencil/paint brush tool.
In the tool options, choose clipboard as brush
De-select the area, menu select choose none
* Bonus:, adjust size of the brush using the '[' and ']' keys (like photoshop)
Very easy to figure out and I never did it before. GIMP is soooo complicated.
PD: I also loved DPaint, Amiga Rulez!

I hear your pain. I'm on the same opinion, I don't see the point on running any Linux stuff on windows, just doesn't make sense.
Western democracies are laying up all the necessary infrastructure to go full blown tyranny.
The funny bit is that nothing this would do if pass will address the primary problem, they try to alleviate the secondary symptoms which will exacerbate the problem and lead to the inevitable outcome.
Anyway, all the the Australian government has to do is that all the IT infrastructure and devices is made by cisco, they seem to come with plenty backdoors as standard.
And I don't need to see any more to know that.
This is because when IPv6 was first published it was DELIBERATELY made incompatible with IPv4 a little fact that was pointed out to the committee who came with IPv6 and not only ignored but smug at.
It never ceases to amaze me to see that the IPv6 creators are the ones stubbornly rejecting reality and somehow if it is not adopted is because the rest of the internet can't see the brilliance of its godly design.
IPv6 is and always have been garbage, it forces you to have a DNS and DHCP servers in place for it to work correctly, and does too many automatic things that that makes it a pain to deal with. And lest not forget the many, many times it has been changed, it has taken them 19 years to come with the final RFC spec.
All that was needed was an extra 2 octets on the addressing, that's all. (This is roughly speaking for the technical pedants out there)
Instead we got an over-engineered mess that is backwards incompatible and somehow it is everybody's fault is not adopted.
Does anybody think that in December 1998 the people who designed it had the required expertise to do so*? I doubt it, the internet had only been running at large for three years at the time.
(*I'm not talking about the bits and bolts, talking about what was that people and markets wanted)
Add backwards compatibility to IPv6 and everyone jumps on board next day SIMPLE.
The parts that go into the kernel are very small.
Bloat is not a problem as you can tailor the kernel to match whatever you require, and you're not forced to load all possible modules at all times.
Me wants to have as much functionality and drivers as possible.
A big kernel does not equate bloat, the project is big because the drivers are maintained in parallel to the rest of the kernel, you're not forced to load or use everything under the sun.
And they fully support open source Linux graphics drivers, for me instant buy.
>> but sadly they seem to have concluded that UNIX kernels are shit
No, not at all, the reason for reimplementing a NT kernel is so you can use native Windows drivers on ReactOS.
>> They have form here remember this?

We can say the same of pretty much 90% of the IT gadgets/stuff that has come in the last 10 years.
Are only possible on the UK.
Where the "We're too busy following all the rules to pay attention to the fire" is 100% doable.
I depend on running Visio 2003 to produce diagrams constantly. It runs great.
As per running games all my gaming on Linux is native now thanks to Steam and latest mesa 18.x
However a couple of weeks back I tried to run the first Borderlands on steam on Windows via wine, (there is no Linux version) out of curiosity to see what would happen. It worked 100% including both the xbox360 controller and online multi-player.
When wine works is fantastic.
You can run 32bit and 64bit applications in wine simultaneously.
What you can't do is mix 32 and 64 bit applications in the same wine prefix.
As long as each application is installed on their own separate profile they can be run simultaneously.
there are two executables wine (32 bit) and wine64 (64 bits) Wine knows which one to use depending on the configuration of the profile, that is why only the command "wine" is generally used.
Hope this helps.
You win the beer!

>> Many models will never wash up in mature markets like the UK, but it's what the production lines are churning out. The survey includes many models not marketed here, but popular for providing buyers in emerging markets with large displays and hefty batteries. That skews the survey towards larger phones.
Oh shock, oh horror, some people are more concerned by function than form.
And even more shocking, some people buy phones to actually use them, and not as a piece of jewellery.
I keep asking the same question to people who religiously refuse to reboot or patch for dread of the "downtime"
I ask: Is this the fire department server? Police? Emergency services? The NHS?
Then patch & reboot out of hours during your period of least activity.
Running Ubuntu with Ryzens and i7s, multiple terabytes of storage and tons of RAM (because why the heck not, I do not want/need my systems swapping)
There are lots of people like me running contemporary Linux computers, but we're all mindful of our privacy and say no to the slurping.
What for exactly?
What problem does it solve? (That isn't solved already)
chmod 777 ALL THE THINGS
And it is as dumb as "rm * -fr"
I swear to god that at this point I think all the "anti-systemd" crusade is like the flat earth society an internet trolling of epic proportions.
I would suggest that you pay attention to how the FBI operates and behaves, too many Hollywood movies have you confused.
If all you thing that it can go wrong in a cashless society is the inconvenience of not having access to your bank account you're in for a rude awakening.
Careful what you wish for...
>> No, it's just try to kidnap you into the GPL ecosystem - which is just nasty as the Windows one.
And when I got to this point I realized you're just a troll.
I've been saying it for years, MS says assume the position and people bend over.
Anything so they don't have to think.
You win the beer this week X-D
It is called PissOps, we do it every Friday, pub time.
For fcuk sake IT industry, stop with the made up market-droid lingo, and fashion reinvented-wheel of the week.
>> Who are these technically illiterate anonymous folk that sit on the CMA making these decisions?
It is time for you to understand that there is no "good" and "bad" people, just people with economic interests and different degrees of power. Whether they are literate or not is a different matter with no bearing whatsoever on the business at hand.
>> ...is hard to interpret as anything but another indication of the ongoing decline of the software industry.
I think you mean society as a whole.
Remember humor is dangerously subversive to SJW as it doesn't allow them to control the language, and an SJW needs to control language to set the narrative so they can't achieve power without opposition.
Having said that, in my humble opinion anyone ever butt-hurt by such an obvious joke is not fit for purpose.
The reason is simple yet tricky to grasp.
No one knows where to go with it, nor which problem are they trying to solve.
I (in my infinite modesty) have been blessed with the means to know what's required to do this successfully but no one will implement it because it is what is good for the users and not the bottom line of <insert company name here>.
It is easier to explain it than it is for people to grasp it's significance.
All that it requires is to integrate a remote desktop type of functionality into the phone.
You connect your phone with the usb cable to the pc and magically a window appears with your mobile screen, you double click on it and make it full screen, and use any app in your phone fullscreen with a mouse and a keyboard.
You can copy and paste, drag and drop between your mobile and the computer when the window is not full screen.
Done, that is the only stuff required, who has it done it? nobody, who will do it? nobody.
Why? because few understand why that functionality is important. Bear in mid Microsoft does, they will not allow this, and Google does too, they know MS won't allow it.

Yet strangely all of it perfectly GPL compliant.
For fuck sake people.
The alt+right mouse is cool if you know it, and aren't mum, dad, grandpa or grandma.
No reason to have 1 pixel window borders on the default theme, no reason.
The window borders 1 or 2 pixels wide are the most annoying thing I have ever encountered, it is one of the easiest things to fix ever yet 7 years down the road they keep doing the same.
I know about using alt+right mouse to scale a window, but Grandma and Grandpa want to aim with the mouse and won't use a keyboard short-cut.
It is the only shame I can find in Xubuntu and it is shocking no one has ever thought on that.
>> Admittedly, I'm a Xubuntu fan…

I would add Gnome3 to the mix of undesirable DEs
Mate or XFCE all the way. Mate is now a better Gnome than Gnome ever was, Mate does seem to succeed in an area where Gnome3 fails consistently, and this is bug fixing.
No one is going to move to IPv6 because of this, ISPs have plenty of IPv4 addresses, and not just that, they have the technical expertise to free many more in case they need them from their old networks.
All it does is increase the price of the commodity which has been made scarce, and prevents competition as the primary resource to start an ISP is IPv4 addresses.
Enjoy your IPv6 designed at a time where people couldn't possibly anticipate what its adoption would entail 20 years later.
What about the noticeable power savings when using 4.17?
These not worth mention?
Yes I agree 90 percent of the film is boring nonsense, the only interesting bits are the HAL bits.
There is a very good way to prove that what I say is true, what do people celebrate about the movie?
The long, long, long silent scenes of the space shuttle?
The color-fest at the end?
They remember "I can't do that Dave".
MATE all the way, XFCE progress is too slow sadly.
If I was Canonical I would make MATE the primary option and Gnome 3 a spin.
Seriously, MATE is that good.
>> Like one of the commenters wrote, most drank the Kool-Aid long ago and have fixed on Windows as the One True Grail long ago.
No, the industry decided to do that because MS is an ecosystem where you can make money in a traditional fashion that normies understand well: "I give you Windows/Service for £X and you resell at £X+100".
The industry locked themselves with MS around their necks and what the industry decides makes them more money with the least effort is pushed into the masses.
And the masses like convenience above all, Windows gives them plenty of that.
This dynamic is called market inertia and it is hard to overcome. But the question is, does it need to be? certainly not for the normies.
It is you IT professional who should start looking at other stuff, not because MS is evil and wants to control your computer, it is because you who will benefit the most from learning FOSS stuff.
Their new Windows 10 chastity mode, Locked and submissive into the MS ecosystem they will feel warm and secured in MS arms.
Fortunately for people who like to have control over their computers there is Penguinland which keeps growing larger and greener.
Well, It is turning out to be the case...
You get Linux on virtually anything these days, and it works great, and keeps getting better and better, it has its issues, and like everything in life it is not perfect, but surely it is already got to the point where as an engineering tool is an absolute killer app...
