Greasy fingers + touch leads to explosion in Windex sales.
I could have sworn VB.NET usage was higher than C# in the early days but can't recall where I read those stats so long ago. So to not have tracked VB.NET but have tracked C# makes me wonder about bias in the data.

@ZippyV: A VM in azure works the same as a VM on site in that regard as far as I know. If you want the machine to get updates from your corporate server then that is the control point. If you want the machine to get updates from Windows Update then that is the control point.

@ZippyV: It sounds like androidi wants the windows update applied to the diff though. i.e. he doesn't want to update the base snapshot then create a new diff.
Now if changes to the base snapshot can be made and those somehow magically push down the child snapshots then that is way cool and I need to read up on that. Seems like pixie dust.
I don't get the valuation given what the news reported last night as their user count and annual revenue per user. The news stated 450 million users who pay $1 per year. They also stated the company doesn't generate any revenue from ads.
That means their revenue is 450 million per year. Ten times revenue would be 4.5 billion. Even doubling that is 9 billion. Facebook paid 16 billion. Those numbers don't jive.
Does WhatsApp have other revenue sources that account for a much higher revenue stream than 450 million?
Interesting perspectives. One group of good individuals wants to disarm another group of good individuals.
If we were to switch out individuals for countries ...
One country wants to disarm another country.
Think about the process that occurs in a country disarming scenario. It isn't pretty.
Each individual is their own country.
On the other other hand, the "Shell" is the OS to the vast majority of users. How you interact with the OS isn't some bullet-point in a list of features, it's frickin' paramount to how that OS will be regarded - hence, Win8's deserved awful reputation despite architecturally being largely sound.
Can't argue with that. I do wonder if the members of the "shell" camp hear "windows everywhere" differently than "shell everywhere".
I'm sure many here are reading his posts, but this sure did ruffle some fanboy feathers:
It is interesting to see the statements about "OS" when it seems the statements are talking about the "shell".
@magicalclick: I think there's a difference between accidents that can happen and the possession of an item that was expressly designed to fire a high speed projectile with the aim of harming or killing someone.
It was possible in the past to own a licensed handgun in the UK, but it only took us one school massacre to ban that because we didn't have gun manufacturers or an equivalent of the NRA pressuring (and paying) politicians to resist a ban.
Curious. Did they ban all the other things that one can go into a hardware store and put together?
