Linux on Windows 10: Will penguin treats in Creators Update be enough to lure you?


senior developer uses it to fix line ending, 'm bafled back to school fool call yourself a junior

Dark matter? More like diet matter: Super-light axions may solve universe's mass riddle


theregister should look for emerging gravity cause dark matter doesnt exist, its a new theory.

darkmatter was there to fix things no its no longer required to describe the universe, and efficient as the unviverse is it wouldnt act like fixing itself

iPad data entry errors caused plane to strike runway during takeoff


Oh guys automate it !

If you can measure the pressure of the wheels, then for sure one could completely automate this..

Drone deals DEATH – to deadly starfish


How to destroy robots that kill ?

Next problem would be how to get rid of all those robots

Unless they think how to get rid of all those humans

Windows 10 heralds the Minecraft-isation of Microsoft


wrong ideas

For a 3d printer you buy a real cheap PC, or an Arduino (which is a bare bone microprocessor).

Your stupid if you buy 8.1 for 3d printing. Also on the high end PC's linux does run pretty good.

The only area might be high-end gaming. But i think these days people play more simple games on android then on windows.

Trickle-down economics works: SpaceShipTwo is a prime example


Space is no good

Well basically your burning 90% fuel and you do about 10% new science.

I think it would be better to do big projects here on earth.

They could push green energy for example (and even get a return in costs).

Maybe just an idea we should stop making areas of the planet live-able, which are by climate definition not live-able for large populations. I think it would be better for those areas to invest in birth control, fixing those problems at the base.

Got $600 for every Win Server 2003 box you're running? Uh-oh


Dear custommer move to free Linux or else we fine you...

MS is getting itself into problems, the only vendor who asks money for its operating system.

People who bought it should have life time support by definition of the act of buying.

Or else they should provide free upgrades, as in fact since NT4 all versions have been upgrades, look at the kernel core, none was radical new.


Dear custommer it's time to move to linux or else ...

ROBOT-ON-DRAGON GRABHAND ACTION: SpaceX supply podule arrives at ISS


Nice title, Sounds like sharks with lasers grab space ship.. the B movies :))

Wikipedia won't stop BEGGING for cash - despite sitting on $60m


look under begging notable beggers..

Boffins attempt to prove the universe is just a hologram


Re: Interesting times

Well a dutch scientist already made the the math to explain gravity just as a side effect of what you describe. On the other side it might be possible that true empty space has a different nature (it cann't be made due to quantum fluctuations). Dough i wonder if QM is just realy the end of measuring and certainty. I rather hope for a a nice mix perhaps something with fractals endless infinite patterns and strings / membranes. As to me inflation just doesnt sound right.

Cosmic dust riddle breakthrough: Study tackles stuff of the universe


this is why that happens

under zero gravity the main attractive force are electrostatic forces.

and on a massive schale even with huge stellar blasts, it doesnt matter, the moving of particles will create elctromagnetic fields, and particles in such environments atrack each.

Huge stellar blasts will only shake those fields more, and thus create more charge.

If those scientist would have taken some looks to experiments allready done in the space shuttle they would have know this.. (a few years ago)...
