  • They might have well said...

    I think Microsoft are so used to being hated that they insulate themselves from criticism. They can make awful decisions and blame all the backlash on the free software fanatics or some other boogeyman. It's been a lot harder to hate Microsoft if you hate Microsoft for the reasons originating in the 90s. The new M$ hatas are actually recently loyal MS customers. It's kinda funny really.

  • Channel 9 officially dead?

    I enjoyed the deep dives with MS Fellows, anything like that recently?

     If the virus mutated and became airborne


    I read somewhere though that viruses have a much easier time becoming airborne in pigs compared to humans though. Also that viruses that mutate to become airborne usually lose some of their virulence, because the immune system is especially active in the repository system and diseases that start there have a harder time killing.

    But yeah, still very scary..

  • Ebola spreads to USA


    My concern is it spreads to the wildlife and becomes endemic.

    The makeshift umbrella tent thing is kinda interesting. How about an umbrella city (umbrella rooms, etc)?, or a competition on who can make the coolest umbrella tent. :)

    Well, they've pretty much thrown down the glove when it comes to feedback. It's certainly a 180° from where they were just a few months ago.


    Asking other people to modify stuff for me isn't how I roll. :)  If it's something I'd care to be reproduceable, I would hack together a script to do it.

    So I tried, but I can't think of anything wrong with what they added. Overall I think this is a substantial improvement over the previous version of Windows. With some modifications I can see using it as my main home OS.

    They've been available in Windows too just not baked into the OS.

    They are very core to how many people use Linux desktops, eg. Xorg was built with "app streaming" in mind from the 80s and it's not uncommon to have a server running apps shared across many desktops.

    Virtual desktops are kinda out of vogue, and advanced tiling window management (eg. awesome) for more professional/power users and OS X-style interfaces (eg. Gnome3, Unity) for beginners are common. Awesome has a very, very large learning curve but it is probably the most productive window manager I've ever used.
