    And everyone hear is thinking "What give away an operating system that Microsoft spent millions to develop". Well Linux developers gives theirs away for free "Ubuntu etc.". And it beat it hands down in security!.  It wasn't CRACKED!!.  Vista was!. So much for millions spent he he!.

    Linux isn't free.  If you're a corporation you still have to pay for it.  Just its open source doesn't mean it isn't part of a business model.

    Why wouldn't they offer it for free?  The biggest reason I see is that of customer service, specifically the cost of CS.

    That's where the "free" could end though.  In the same sense that you'd get the OS for free but pay for the software, you'd also still pay for the support.

    This idea follows the disposable razor blade paradigm.  Get the razor for pratically nothing, then spend the rest of your life buying blades for it.

  • It's All Relative

    Incest is relative.

  • What would it take?

    Okay, I've been polling people recently about this and I figured C9 would be a good spot to get some feedback...

    Okay, so everyone here probably has their favorite operating system. I’d say that’s a given. Mine is Mac OS X. I know some of you love Linux, and there's obviously lots of you here on Windows. So my first question is Why do you love your choice so much? What makes it so much better than MY choice or someone else’s choice? Why won’t you use anything else? Is it cost, or support, or morals or more obviously form and functionality?

    And my second question would be what would it take for you to drop your current choice for something else? What features in an operating system could possibly make you want it so bad that you’d switch and never come back?

    I started on a PC.  Why switch.  My needs are met and there's not a single compelling reason to bother.  In terms of concerns in my day to day, an operating system is practically non-existant.  I find that if people have "favourites" its usually because they don't have much else to do but latch on to something and desperatly try to convince themselves that they're part of a movement or something.

  • executables bigger than 4gb can't be deleted on vista?

    I guess you could always open the archive, delete stuff from it until its small enough, then delete the file itself.

    Sucks if you have to do this frequently though.

  • Do you pray?

    I pray every time I deploy. hehe Wink

  • 1080p Movie Creation

    1080p resolution is 1920 x 1080.  Make sure you're using square pixels when you encode it.  DO NOT use NTSC settings to encode HD footage as it will interlace and the pixels are rectangular.

  • Hardware ​virtualizat​ion ?

    Probably something to do with compatibility.  If you had really new or really old hardware it might have trouble virtualizing it and crash.  Then you'd be on here asking "why is this virtualize hardware option on by default?  It keeps crashing everything".
