Re: Most users...

"just tell them how to enable it in your app if you want to use that feature"

There're about just slightly more than a million Android "Distros" out there each with a ever slightly different UI logic&design&layout, so good luck getting your user to find that option they needed,

Secure Boot booted from Debian 9 'Stretch'

Most Linux distros are such flimsy OSes..

OpenStack: Pleeeeease stop panicking, Intel and Rackspace still love us

Re: The Cloud...

With OpenStack's shorter-than-my-penis feature list, nobody in their right minds would use it as the primary driving engine for private or hybrid clouds.

Searching for 'Fatty Kim the Third' banned on Chinese social media

Try "金三胖"

This is correct.

Field Commander A9

The Chinese character for fat (胖) is made from a character for moon(月) on the left and a character for half(半) on the right. So you see when you really want to give that F.A.T feel or trying to avoid censorship, you can separate the character 胖 in to 2 characters 月 半 (lit. "moon half")

You want to hide something from motherland? You must be a terrorist! Because a decent comrade won't need to hide anything from motherland! So if your company is helping someone to hide something from motherland, then that someone must be a terrorist and your company would be helping terrorism! And motherland will never tolerant a company that facilitates terrorism!

Microsoft's malware mitigator refreshed, but even Redmond says it's no longer needed

Re: Hang on MS...

Because forced DEP brakes a lot of legacy software, CounterStrike1.6 for example(a surprisingly lot of people are still playing this version here in the most populated country on earth). And forced SEHOP breaks even more.

Re: What do it do?

Satellite recon is only good for stationary targets as it can only do a sweep every 8 hrs. Recon drones, on the other hand, can stay on station for much longer, but can be shot down by SM-6s... unless the drones are stealth too like the X-47B.

At Microsoft 'unlimited cloud storage' really means one terabyte

That's because you're living on the wrong side of the world--the capitalism side.

In the socialism side of the world, OneDrive is the most reliable cloud storage service of them all.

And the very person who first introduced Start Menu and taskbar to Windows said that he's disappointed with Windows 10's version because after more than 22 years they are still too similar to the original ones.

The LINUX TABLET IS THE FUTURE - and it always will be

Field Commander A9
Stop

Linux kernel is nor Linux, in the same way that a car engine is not a car.

Putting a linux kernel into a linux distro makes it a Linux, putting a linux kernel under a java VM doesn't.

You put a car engine into a car chasis and then you get a car. Trying to call Android a Linux is like putting a car enging into a speedboat chasis and then trying to call it a car. It just makes no sense.
