To be fair, if they implemented the Emperor's New Clothes that is an Enterprise Service Bus then they deserve all they got.

OS/400 for one.
This will be the problem when you have the iOs based on Linux. We can always see this problem kind when the open source is in use because of the easy way of seeing the codes and working them out. This is why we always never use the free Linux at our professional software company. We all have the Windows phones for best safety.

Presumably he is referring to Visual J++
Re: Not Good
"I'm seriously disappointed that after all this time we are still seeing buffer overruns as a thing"
This is because they still use the C language. With Java you cannot have the buffer overruns but the Linux people cannot understand this because of their amateur natures.
And with the publication of this story...
El Reg's long-diminishing reputation as a worthwhile IT news portal is finally laid to rest.
If Facebook is so clever with the deep learn why they have to throw such special extra hardware at it? I think they have lots of idiots but lots of money.
So once again we are seeing the linux fail with the security holes.
When will they learn that it is free and you are getting what you are paying for?
Re: The only reason anyone is angry at Bob...
"A client sends a job to their agency, who take a cut and send it to their contractors, who take a cut, who send it to their subcontractors who take a cut and who then, send it to me (and take a cut). The rest of the money is money. Minus what the cut taken by the taxman, of course.
Why, therefore should the sub-sub-sub contracting stop with me?"
I like it. The entire IT world could collapse one day when we realise that everybody has subcontracted everyone else's subcontracts and there is nobody actually doing the work.
Then the taxpayer would bail us out
Why do I need Flash to see the chart?
Bollocks to that
Hot off the press
This will be the news from one ago then?
Surely just not use PHP in first place?
If they use the proper language like Java or C# they would not now be in these woes and spend all these monies on converter to legacy C++ which is only the same step back too but just a bit faster.
Why Firfox wastes their time on this?
Surely he better to spend his time to make the desktops one run at good speed and not to crash all the time before he bloat out the memory on my phone too.
"they're discussing The Matrix in her English class at school"
Good to see the education system still teaching the classics - Shakespeare, Orwell, Tolstoy, Wachowski...
Thank God they're not dumbing down.
Linuxtarders make me laugh always
You won't help but always mock Windows for these viruses but why you don't look at the cause?
Windows has most viruses because it is most used. If Linux had most users it would have more of the virus. This is my simple logic.
And why I laugh most is that Linux is free and Windows you pay for yet Windows is still by far our most popular. So it seems Linux is so bad they cannot even give it away!!!!!
Problem of the open sources
The linux will always take this much as not so efficient at programs
Where's the IT angle?
Had the three of them spent a fortune on Steve Jobs' latest clothing range?
Why have to be Linux?
Article misleads us as if customer must have Linux to do pictures.
We can use the free software on Windows without our needs of Linux.
On most Windows we will already have installed the folder called "Accessories". If not then it can be got on the CD as custom option to tick checkbox on in installers.
Once we have Accessories we can use applicaiton called "mspaint.exe" which can be found on the hard disks and also on the Start Menu in Accessories (All Programs). Here we then have the free software for editing our files.
If we have no need for edit then many won't realise simple way of dragging picture to Internet Explorer 8 (which also has come free of charges) in order to examine it closely.
My camera comes with installer for Windows to let it transfer the images and use option tool for the viewing but I don't need it as I have the aboves.
Best way we stop Firefox giving bank details to russian on internet is use the Internet Explorer instead - it come free and work safe and fast.
Where you get this mad idea?
Faster? It take much longer to load.
Safer? Where you get that crazy from? Much less safe - just because they say "safe" you fall for it ha ha!
@You forgot one
For this we read: you use Firfox for your pornographics but keep it not default so wife never see history when she click to browse?
You forgot one
Opps - then I forget to even comment on how you do "different tasks" "simultaneously". I think left hand knows what right hands does ha ha!
@Java Browser Exists
As if we not have enough problems with Java in the Firfox!
Make me laughs
Bob laugh how so many fanfox vote him down but not make resonable arguement as why they do it.
Here we see why I so often am telling not to use the Firfox. With IE I know I will see this mend as soon as we know of the hole and here we see it as I predict.
With Firfox we would be always reading about further delays to the latest version and he leave us open to the abuses for various extra months.
Why still they bang on with head against walls?
Why he still scrape around looking for small performance boosting when we see clearly that browsers building with Jav will never give me the performance I need. Why they not use compiling language to write browser if they seek most gain? I use IE8 as it is giving me the speed and the security that I desire and he comes free with the Windows and looked after by the Windows update so we have no problems.
How old this news?
Guinness cost at least £3.30 in pubs already and have for last year or twos.
All is madness
Why he want Jav database anyway? C one will be always faster and with JBDC we can still use it from Javs if we need.
Good luck with the job centre plus people - but I am fearing they use the Microsoft too so you may not be able to sign on.
Firfox always has these bug every week we see new ones. Why do people use when they can have the free Internet Explorer which comes in the Windows box and is workng for us better?
vordan are child
IE is only choice in business world
In our company we must have IE because we need the security that comes with not having the open source. Open sources are good for the student hackers who plays with his simple codes in his bedrooms but for our proper businesses it must never be the option.
Also Firefox suffers us with the obviously problems of a Jav platform, while Safari and Opera have the niche codes without the support we need, and Chrome has the spam adverts built in, so IE is our best choice.
Nothing for us to be seeing round here
Why there is a problem if Microsoft takes the codes and makes it better? If the man gives his codes away and they are not already good enough then he seems only natural that Microsoft would do this to make it better for us all.
He take the biscuits
Why Firefox not just fix the bug instead of just tell the users about them?
With the IE we see that they can fix them quick with the update on the next day and user is not filled with worries. Why can the Firefox not be the same?
I will guess that it is the open source cause of problem - if the coding man might be on holiday or busy with his exams then they must just put out the notice for a while to warn me not to use the Firefox until they fix it? This is why I must pay for my software for the safety and to be nicely relieved of my tensions.
I am not understanding this free software cults. Why must it only be good thing for software to be free?
What else we see in life that takes many men-months or years to make and then people say it must be free? What is wrong for programmer man to expect some monies for his fine skills and all his working time put in?
Perhaps it all just comes in from student with long and greasy hair and heavy metal t-shirt and wifi called "Use-of-W3apons", who works on the Linux free instead of studying for my tax pounds. But when he goes away and must have a job he stops making the Linux free and is happy to take some money. And so it goes on that the Linux is only come from students which we find to be the bad reason for always the rewriting of the file system and things as each has own wheel to reinvent and no experience of the proper skills we seek from operating system man.
What of Bob?
Why I post the same comments as other people but mine have the banning? I was not rude.
@AC @Bob Gateaux
"leave that to the meerkats, who are much better at you and much funnier"
I do not see why you say this. But then you hide as Anonymous so I know you have not the courage to stand by it.
You tell story about Microsoft patch which waits two years but of course you are offering no backup story to explain what you say as true evidence.
I am happy with what I know to be based on properly looking at news and the technology papers. I am using Microsoft most times but still there must be times when I can recommend the alternatives when I have made proper research to prove it is the wisest of choices.
It seems many on the forums are not do their research as well like me and just shoot their hips when they see chance to beat brow Microsoft.
Is a warning to many freeboys
Many are often claim the Linux is the best and free but this shows that it fails to be the case.
Windows has many security update but never do we find a bug left in place for 8 years! In fact Windows always will update more often with a new versions to ensure it is more secure than the last one (we see NT ant 200 and 2003 and the newer ones and XP and Vistas for our examples).
When we see the Linux men not bother to change the softwares for 8 years we must worry. This is why I choose not to have it on my computers where I am working.
@Greg J Preece - File copying bug part II
Perhaps you might only run one antivirus instead of lots. Maybe you not good at protecting the computer you have so it has many spyware and porn linking on the desktop? If he try a clean build first then might be better before to criticise something that we know is not the case. Also we see that you use the Maven WAR files - this is Javs.
This will be bad
If we have Linux on the desktop instead of the Windows we are say good bye to the PC everywhere as a tool of common man. Imagine all the men and dog try to use command line to make latest driver work like with WinModem.
It will be death of computer for ordinary person.
@Greg J Preece
You say me an "idiot" which is not very nice from you.
Why you take it granted that he is more safe because they fix the bugs quicker and more often? How about it is only necessary to fix so many times because they are many more security vulnerability in the beginning? It is not enough to just say what you say - my logic is equal and valid so I am not an idiot like you say.
Who are the people who "it is considered far more secure" like you say? I see lots on the board here who do not agree - perhaps they call you idiot too?
Anyways you are not a nice person I think.
Yet more bug in the browser
Why people use this one? He say "most secure way to surf the web" on the front but it have a bug every new day which risks me having computer germs and filth installed. I don't use because we have IE free and it works fast.
Yes GaryF has hit the button on the head. Firfox uses all my memory when I use it by accident - that is why I must use the IE for my efficiency. It seem obvious to me that they are silly to use Jav for a browser - it always slow and leaks the memory as we have no way to destruct the objects.
Too many now
This gets to be beyond the funny joke.
Microsoft must launch program to help user stop Firefox before it starts as part of security suite, or uninformed user will accidentally use it and have their bank stolen.
Why Firfox developers not prosecuted for all this?
IE8 is the best one
Always this same talk of Firfox against the Internet Explorer. Why must people try to always put the Microsoft one down when we know it comes for free and works best on the web sites? Also as I say before the Firfox Javs will always be its large downfall as it is most slow and also uses all my memory up in one go.
For me and my friends it is a no brain to choose IE8 as the best one.
P.S. also to please take some salt on the statistic that they say about users of the browser - due to some details in confusion with something we call the "users agent" most people are not sure which browser the customer chooses - many IE browsers flavour appear as though they are the Firfox through IE sending Mozilla to be sure that site will still serve it. This dates back to time when Sun tries to hoodwink the web from Microsoft with Java applets.
Why they keep on with this?
It is dead man walking with all the security flaw it has and slowness of Jav performance instead of Visual C++ of IE8 choice. I worry that many are led to this by spamware in the emails and do not choose to use in logical fashion. Why can Microsoft not add to Windows an update that will step in to recommend the problems with Firfox and then to direct to IE8 download site? Then people can be protected from all this every month.
Nothing to see here
Why all the fuss is made?
Who want to turn Windows 7 into XP anyway if they are letting you try Vista instead? Vista goes much faster than the Linux and it has the extra security pop-ups so this would be your best choice.
