We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Easy. Just put a narrow door on your restaurant and the fact people won't be able to get in.
They've clarified this many times.
No, they haven't. All the "clarifications" I can find are simply regurgitations of the same ambiguous phrasing.
When you realize that Microsoft have been openly discussing a subscription-based version of Windows, then the phrase, "Free for the first year," takes on an entirely different meaning, now doesn't it? Microsoft has not clarified this, even to discredit it.
And even if MS isn't planning on a subscription-based flavor of Windows, they still have been abundantly less than clear exactly which version of Windows 10 you'll be receiving for free. Will it be a kind-for-kind trade (Home version for Home version, "Pro" version for "Pro" version, etc.), or will everyone get the lowest tier SKU available, probably with Bing plastered everywhere?
It would be nice if I were wrong about this. But Microsoft's history demands that I be very suspicious of Gateses bearing gifts.
All of which makes me deeply suspicious of what this "free" version of Windows actually is. We clearly haven't been told the whole story yet.
That'll be really difficult as their head's already there.
Because the pateint doesn't believe in medicine. They believe in homeopathy...
Sugar pills will be net zero or net negative because they believe medicine is harmful overall...
And he's part of the Conservative Party instead of the Silly Party?
As it happens, about three years ago I started doing an irregular series of Let's Play/Drown Out videos on YouTube with my colleage, GammaDev. Both of us are former employees of 3DO, and we covered The Deal that Never Happened in a video about two years ago (seek to 25:12).
Frankly, I'm having a hard time seeing how Lenovo recovers from this.
Define "better". So very few devices work well for things in the $35 category. You typically have to spend double that for similar gear- and IT isn't any better- they're all bare boards and each have gotchas gallore for their use.
Most people aren't going to shell out $500 or more for the board that accounts for all the possible concerns- which is what you get to pay for someone to have done most of the gotcha removals on the design. Well, unless they're building a system to commercially control an industrial CNC machine or the like...
- Expand systemd to the point where large swaths of everything depend on it, so that he is controlling as much of the code base as possible.
- Insult Linus Torvalds for a while to try to undermine his authority.
- Fork Linux, or demand that Linus give control of Linux over to him, or he will rage-quit and take his code with him.
I don't see it unfolding that way. Remember what happened when BitKeeper tried to get up in his business. Linus, if provoked, could write an init/system management framework in a couple weeks (and probably name it "twerp" or some such). And I suspect he would do so long before things got to stage #3, just to prove the point.
It left junk... Kind of like shooting a bullet at it, really. So...if I shoot a bullet into the air and it lands somewhere, I can stake a claim to it? COOOL!
That's why Boston went into a tizzy, you know...Mooninites showing up and all.
SMH... You do know what He3 is, right? It's a Helium Isotope.
Helium freezes at just a degree above Absolute Zero. The dark side of the moon's entirely too warm for frozen He3. It's sequestered in the regolith of the Moon's Surface and is constantly replenished over time by the Solar Wind.
I guess I shouldn't expect better...it is
