Microsoft programming chief to devs: Tell us where Windows hurt you


Trying to run anything related to Docker in Windows is a monumental pain in the backside, farting about with HyperV or VBox. Add a batshit crazy corporate AV solution, lock down the box so I can't access loads of ports and mix in a crappy VPN that nukes traffic on the 192.168 IP ranges and it's enough to make you quit and find another gig. Why would anyone doing any container based development go anywhere near Windows?

Sega’s Out Run: Even better than the wheel thing


The nostalgia for this is entirely lost on me. I loved it all those years ago and spent many a 30p on it (which is how much it cost for a play on the movey-aroundy version on Redcar sea front) but it's just a curiosity now. The 70 minute (!) video just makes it look boring. Most things were better back in the old days, but computer games isn't one of them
