Want to spin up Ubuntu VMs from Windows 10's command line, eh? We'll need to see a Multipass

Re: I love WSL, since it made scripting on Windows usable after 30 years :)

Is that your definition of "simple" and "elegant"?

Boy, are you desperate.

Re: I give SuperMicro the benefit of the doubt.

In the meantime, I am sure you have noticed that none of the affected enterprises, namely Apple, Amazon and SuperMicro, have done anything substantial against Bloomberg other than whining.

Now if the impact on the financials is what it seems and the allegation is false, surely one might expect a more definitive action right?

Instead, everyone hopes that it will soon be forgotten just like Spectre and Meltdown.

Which leads me to the conclusion that either the Bloomberg story (at least the core of it) is indeed correct or that no company involved is actually sure that what is described in the story could not have happened. Which basically means that the story has a high chance of been correct.

Icon because Windows users have been willingly subjected to the spy treatment all along since 10. One spy more doesn't make that much of a difference.

Re: the arrival of Shielded VMs for Linux VMs

Windows is slowly but surely fading away as it should have happened years ago.

Mythical pot

So the BREXITeers have discovered the mythical pot that would automagically lead us to prosperity, happiness, peace and love for all.

Strange. I seem to remember that the morning after the referendum the 350m/week claim was promptly denied and shortly after that all political leaders resigned their party positions.

The message needs better alignment to the "not a lot of IQ" line of action. It then may actually have a future. Plenty of clientèle out there

double edged sword

"a system that is more friendly to copyright holders" although may not sound bad initially, will in the end favour existing media-barons as the ones having the biggest arsenal of copyrighted material.

This will turn the interwebs into a traditional news outlet that is so much loved by everybody.

OTOH, the existing mentality that everything is free for grabs does not give anyone its rightful piece of the pie.

Tricky...

Who is the thief?

So NPM.js not only re-published the left-pad package against the original author's intentions, it assigned a new maintainer on top of that effectively taking ownership of the module.

If that isn't stealing, I don't know what is.

Is this Open Source?
