I re-install my operating system every few months, mainly because I get bored with it, regardless of which one I'm using.

Heck, I don't even REBOOT every couple of months.  :P

I had one server loop the old Linux uptime counter...twice.

From Slashdot -- EU Wants Multiple Browser Bundling On New PCs --

Quote
The EU is considering forcing Windows users to choose a browser to download and install before they can first browse the Internet, according to The Wall Street Journal  (subscription required).

While the latest Windows 7 builds let you uninstall IE8, "third-party browser makers like Opera, Mozilla and Google are pushing for tough sanctions against Microsoft.  The EU would rather have a 'ballot screen' for users to choose which browsers to download and install as well as which one to set as default.  The bundling requirement might end up becoming a responsibility for manufacturers."

Fuckin' commies!  :x

Regardless of the disagreement over OS, that is one thing we can completely agree upon.

Any legislation specifying what a private company may or may not do with their own product is reprehensible.

I have a laptop. If we were talking servers, I wouldn't suggest Windows or Linux. I install my OS because I find it fun. I happen to avoid the activation by doing that, but I do it when I'm running my legit copies of Vista or Linux, so it has very little to do with the fact that I CAN avoid the license thing. I'd just crack it if that was my aim.

From Slashdot -- Ballmer Threatens To Pull Out of the US --

Quote
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is threatening to move Microsoft employees offshore if Congress enacts President Obama's plans to curb tax avoidance by US corporations.

"It makes US jobs more expensive," complained billionaire Ballmer.  "We're better off taking lots of people and moving them out of the US as opposed to keeping them inside the US."

According to 2006 reports, Microsoft transferred $16 billion in assets to secretive Dublin subsidiaries to shave billions off its US tax bill.

"Corporate tax is part of the overall advantage of doing business in Ireland," acknowledged Ballmer in 2005. "It would be disingenuous to say otherwise."

I fully support Ballmer closing up shop here and moving away from the people's failed republic of Amerika...

Personal and professional secession starts with the mindset to refuse to be a victim, and then to implement that throughout your life and your businesses...

Of course, if he would attempt to do that then the Obamanator would nationalize Microsoft in the interest of national security...

Same with Google when they try to pack up and leave for better pastures...

I'm sure the Chinese(or the Russians...or the Swiss) would love to have Microsoft and Google!

He's probably bluffing, the U.S. government is Microsoft's #1 supporter.

Intellectual property laws don't just come about naturally, some corrupt government thugs have to be bribed first...




Um, did I just flip-flop back to Linux?

On the topic of the thread this article, and especially the posted responses, are wonderfully insightful:

http://blog.linuxtoday.com/blog/2009/06/linux-sucks-as.html

Does that make Mr. Libman a paid shill of Microsoft? No, I would not make such an assertion. He's just repeating the talking points, directly or by osmosis, or even because that has actually been his experience by some astounding coincidence, from the present Microsoft astroturf play-book.

Heck, I don't even disagree with him on most things, as we can see here:

He's probably bluffing, the U.S. government is Microsoft's #1 supporter.

And one of their biggest customers. Who knows what backdoors the Fed.Gov has inserted into Windows?

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=us+government+backdoor+windows

Which reminds me of one of the strangest "services" the US Government ever provided: Security Enhanced Linux:

http://www.nsa.gov/research/selinux/

...for Solaris and BSD, too.

This thread is about the quality of Microsoft products, particularly from a business-oriented developer point of view.  Obviously Microsoft is in bed with the government, as all corporations are obligated to be as the result of government violence.  They're not the problem, the government is!

Now, the next "talking point", from Slashdot -- First Look At Microsoft Silverlight 3 --

Quote
InfoWorld's Martin Heller finds Silverlight 3 gaining ground on Adobe Flash, Flex, and AIR in all the areas where Silverlight 2 had lagged.

No longer do developers need to build desktop WPF apps based loosely on corresponding Silverlight RIAs, as Silverlight 3 adds the ability to install Silverlight apps on the desktop, update them in place, detect Net connectivity state changes, and store data locally and securely. Moreover, solid Expression Blend 3 and Visual Studio 2010 betas [WP] provide developers with much improved tools to create Silverlight RIAs.

"'I do not expect many Adobe shops to give up their Flash, Flex, and AIR for Silverlight 3.  I do expect many Microsoft shops to do more RIAs with Silverlight now that it's more capable and to create lightweight browser / desktop Silverlight 3 applications where they might have fashioned heavier-weight Windows Forms or WPF client applications', Heller says."

Alex, no one has yet shown any valid use of those fucking 'widgets' on Linux, Mac, or Windows desktops. They're the new Bonzi Buddy of this (and probably the next) decade! Or in simpler terms: they're SHIT! GIMME MAH NATIVE ENVIRONMENT BACK!

Oh heck, no one has yet shown any valid use for resizable windows - I always keep one window maximized and hardly ever see my desktop, which is blank.  The operating system could have been called Tabs for all I care!

But it seems to entertain some people, so, well, who cares.  n00btards are people too - especially if they have money to pay for for the next release of Windows. 

So anyways, I don't see what this has to do with Silverlight, which brings about many improvements over Java(FX) or Flash...

Cute. One of the lightweight "desktops" I keep on hand is twm, the "Tab Window Manager" http://xwinman.org/vtwm.php

I notice that OLWM is on their list too, I also keep that on hand just in case I want to party like it's 1992!
