    This was just the result of some reflection on time. Time doesn't have to be linear just because we humans measure experience in seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years.

    I was thinking about Channel 9 - and time - when I posted this thread. It reoccurred to me, this special symmetry in 9.


    and for those of us that care: nanoseconds, microseconds, milliseconds Smiley

  • xbox one and ​multi-​tasking.

    my understanding is that no, the way multitasking works is by using three different execution environments and one for the games

    Not sure references make sense on the main page

  • Regarding Microsoft Kinect‏

    @nikhildahake: Kinect does not have the precision nor fidelity required for a FPS, but even if it had, it'd be rather unnatural to use it for that, it's good for other kinds of games thought. I sympathize with Carmack on this one Smiley

  • Is There a Need for a Free Windows Kernel?

    I recently purchased a couple of managed switches for our small office and I discovered with horror I had to configure them with a good old VT100! Lets just say that in a futuristic IT environment, I have a hard time appreciating the tool.

    As I am slowly learning PowerShell, I find it far superior to any Linux/UNIX shell (except for the terminal itself) I have been using; wouldn't it be great if it was available on network equipment? In other words: could Microsoft license for free the Windows kernel with some tools for use in such devices in a similar way as Microsoft supports the .NET Micro Framework?

    This might sound a little utopic, but in a world where Microsoft has to compete more and more with open and free software this would also have the advantage of letting people play with the OS and expand it further. It is undeniable that the availability of the Linux kernel is one of the main reasons it is so widely spread today and it is easy to find people with good expertise on it.

    Alternatively, would it be possible to port some of the tools like PowerShell to Linux? This would not have the advantage of spreading the OS, but it would probably be a good compromise to introduce people to the tool...

    Linux is awesome, and it's doing great, not sure a simple shell is any motivation whatsoever to justify such a shift, plus Linux is super modular and can run on anything including very low power hardware. SSH works fine, what problems are you having with it? Though I think it's pretty cool how the NT kernel runs on phone and desktop, and tablets. P.S. My personal opinion of course Smiley

    I met PopeDai a while back. The guy was very polite and didn't have any facial hair.

    He's definitely not W3bbo...
