Well, if you want encouragement. I did it.
Emprie:TW, X3:AP, Stellaris, Factorio, Arma3, Cities Skylines all work just fine on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS - the only thing a little sketchy is installing steam and steam overlay I turned off. 1080Ti works just fine here too.
And I can choose what and how to update. There's proprietary drivers for GPUs just the same... as if open source drivers matter for most gamers... you're buying proprietary hardware...
The thing I note that doesn't is Company of Heros which I occasionally play with family.
I rarely use Windows personally anymore and happier for it. Only a matter of time till I wipe that SSD and one day discover the usb stick for windows and wonder if I could wipe that too...
Seriously we put up with vista, took a deep breath with windows7, windows 8 got us angry all over and 10 is a goddam nightmare.
It's an operating system for christ's sake. I decided near the end of last year, that's it. I'm out.
Whatever. With online backups - just make sure you have factory reset your devices before handing it over to authorities, walk out of the airport etc and reconnect to your profile.
You can get me to login to my online account over hot coals. If it's insisted you log in to your account - have an empty or dummy account ready - just for them.
If the agencies are going to treat adults with such contempt to make us out like children - I see no reason why we cannot play the game.
They started it...
If it's too expensive or the content is too crap. And it is on both counts... just do something better! Like anything outside! Get fit and meet people, make new friends and have a blast.
It's a lot of fun and there is no mandatory advertising that actively blocks your time...yet. I hear you can even meet members of the opposite sex and everything...
RE: train driver.
It couldn't be that perhaps the current systems are deficient or anything else *other than* willful negligence?
I mean, I was reading this as a tragic accident so far and didn't know for myself that he was proven guilty of anything yet. Thanks for saving us all the time to find out.
Guilty. 79 dead already, what's the death of one more amirite?
Dude. I’ll bite, just because it’s better than doing work. But I’m entirely ignoring the first part of your post.
* Apple didn't invent black, in electronic devices or otherwise. It’s a colour that generally doesn’t offend the majority, just like white.
* Icons to launch apps, square or otherwise, are the tried and tested method of launching apps (easily) since OS’s evolved from console apps, though I do remember XTREE. Icons are hardly Apples.
* SSung also didn’t choose to implement icons that: flash red and blue randomly, positioned roughly in a grid concentrically, disappear as you go to select them, have the icon default shape of a Torx security screw head with a triangular, multi-coloured background while swirling everything across the screen like stuff in a fishbowl so things overlap and you can’t select the one you want… breaths… probably is because while certainly distinctive - it’s stupid and would piss people off. Not something you aim for when you want them to buy your crap.
It’s hardly *novel* to opt with using square app / web link icons in a square grid on a square piece of screen real estate. There is loads of prior art to prove that too.
I thank you el reg for just reporting the news. Sure you make up units, but you didnt this time at least jump on the everything-gate bandwagon. Thank you. It's just a glitch in a dam iphone - not a presidency ender.
Just came from http://www.theaustralian.com.au/australian-it/apple-admits-to-iphone-4s-software-bug-that-drains-the-battery/story-e6frgakx-1226184443383
A fairly normal article until you get assaulted with "Antennagate" and "Batterygate" ... really? That's as stupid as "Utegate": http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/utegate-cops-put-malcolm-turnbull-in-clear/story-0-1225744498449
Watergate was a long time ago but the stupid Baby Boomer reporters here won't get off it. Stop smoking those things and stop making lame, unnecessary, words up and then injecting them into your report.
This whole wordgate affair smells of a ripe conspiracygate.
Knew what he was doing was wrong and illegal. Nothing different to picking someone's pocket but much worse cause can/do rob them broke with potential to dip in again and again.
He would have known the risks and moral slant of his actions, I have 0 sympathy for this scum. Lock him up already.
& only "developing" "gaming to excess" @ 14? n00b. No wonder he turned to a life of crime :)
