Re: Will MS drop IE too?
You know that on Windows 10 you can uninstall IE 11, do you?
(even if you get a BIG warning that you may break something doing so...)

To plug a PDQ is easy, to configure it requires an IT guy and a lengthy process with the PDQ provider...
And then you may have to reconfigure the POS system in order to send the transactions to the PDQ (anyone unfortunate enough to have worked with Oracle Xstore ?)
And since the shop will be charged for each configured PDQ, you can't expect it will have any spare laying aroud "just in case"...
In most big companies I work for as a contractor, the contracts are 1 to 3 months long, and can be renewed for a total duration of up to 3 years.
After that you have to wait half the length of your stay before being able to come back.
Ohterwise the company could be compelled by the syndicates to hire me.
The main problem would be to identify the hardware which has the issue, and to do it without error.
Once it is done, it only needs to be added to the database which is used by the Win10 setup to check for compatibility issues when applying upgrades.
And for those who want to check their system compatibility before upgrading, once you have downloaded the full setup:
SETUP.EXE /Auto Upgrade /Quiet /NoReboot /Compat ScanOnly
Results will be available in C:\$Windows.~bt\Sources\Panther\ScanResult.xml, or in the *compat*.xml files in that same folder.
If all the applications available in a country must be used according to the country's laws, when will Apple remove the ones that allow users to commit crimes?
A little list to start:
- any map (you can use it to plan a burglary)
- SMS and phone (same thing)
- an calculator or spreadsheet (it can be used later to divide the results of the above burglary)
So you have IT manager who are SO derelict in their duties that they don't ever think that a computer system needs to be upgraded from time to time, which means that they HAVE TO provide a budget for maintenance and upgrades?
What will they do when their 20 years old computers will fail and newer ones won't be able to run WinXP?
How is it MS fault?
When you are in an emergency, trying to find the data in a humongous database can be too time consuming!
So you need something on the patient itself...
A NFC chip perhaps, or a tattoo (the above mentioned barcode for example).
It comes with a side benefit: you will stop wondering if these huge boobs are natural or not!
If people spend all their time earning enough money to barely survive, they don't have the leisure to spend time being informed about the political situation, which is the basis for a real democracy.
But I am not confident that there is any country where this kind of democracy exists currently...
