Yawn. More bloatware and yet another set of new problems to work around. This has never happened before, surely it hasn't!

Re: A lot of the revenue decrease is no more US Federal Government sales
I take it you may never have done business with the US government. Supercomputers remain a defence item in the minds of congressional protectors. Keeping Cray in business and killing off 'Japan Inc' was their top concern in the 1990's when Japan had a few far more capable (and stable) offerings. Nothing has changed. The US will be superior or put up the walls or change the rules as necessary to keep it that way (in their minds). Regardless of how accurate those claims, anything else will be accused of being fake news or summarily dismissed.
The developments in China with their home grown chips and software will cause apoplectic fits in US government when they mature and internationalise.
Re: McDonalds touch screens
Are you a Trump science and medical advisor? It is well established that humans are 'dirty' and spread diseases. The more group touching the more susceptible to pass something along. I suppose you never wash your vegetables and fruits either. I guess all those other peoples germs help your immune system, right? s/not paranoid but scientifically and medically literate
It is small, fast, definitely suits the more techie mindset, but is buggy as hell.
I have myriad first line web sites I visit where only Firefox has problems, from simple display of content without going non responsive to non-functional chat services. Frankly I am tired feeding the almost endless list of web sites to the developers. Reresh made no difference so it is Firefox not an add-on. I tried Opera for its built-in VPN, but it is slow and clunky and lacks a lot of what I love about Firefox such as remembering which directory I store from which web sites. Chrome? Too "hip" and magical with much happening under the covers. Maybe I should give in and use Edge? (Just kidding).
You need to get a life oh Pompous one. The FTTP product might not be perfect (and probably far from it) but is at least reasonably current technology. The rest is rubbish built for the last century. Nice rant though, and nice you hate anyone apparently not an LNP supporter. FWIW I am politically agnostic and support the best programs not the cheapest or most expedient eg, an independent voter.
Business as Usual in Australia
Another fine example where the welfare of Austrian workers is secondary to partisan wrangling and unchecked bureaucracy and the absence of laws with teeth protecting anyone about anything.
Many Australians are not getting their super contributions and nobody in the coalition government gives a rats, and the self entitled who don't make their payment generally laugh all the way to their own retirement.
I would not punt on that. Cable bandwidth is shared amongst everyone connected to it. The cable might run at 100 Mbps but if only 25 others are streaming it is already down to 4. How many in your area are on the same cable you will be on?
HFC - state of the art 1990s. Reflecting the coalition's mentality. Lucky it is not the 1950's again!
8.1 downloaded (and downloaded and downloaded) and Installed fine. Then wifi would not work more than the first connection to anything. Had to uninstall the intel wifi device so it could reinstall during a reboot. Then bitdefender firewall blocked everything. so now on windows firewall. Then 56 MB of updates immediately found included a new wifi driver. during install it forces you to use your microsoft account - and transports all of that info (password, alias name) onto the PC whether or not you want it. Linux is getting better every day.
