Steam is coming to a new operating system
"As we’ve been working on bringing Steam to the living room, we’ve come to the conclusion that the environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself. SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen. It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines.""

No Nobel prize. Less range than a Prius. Lame.
Well played sir.
The original sentence was probably something like "I like a bagel with my coffee."
I think his hovercraft may be full of eels actually.
Yeah, I heard that too. It's time I start playing with some high brightness IR LEDs. Hell, you could even spell "idiots" and they wouldn't be able to do anything - it's not illegal to carry a battery and a bunch of LEDs.
I think having "PIRATE" spelt out across the back of my jacket would be brilliant, and it could result in a very funny conversation as you feign ignorance and they try and explain what they have seen.
I ran into the installation size surprise when I was testing server 2008 - I was pretty surprised when the system partition was about 20gb a few days after install without me installing anything on it.
This is how they fit 20gb onto a 3gb DVD.
So its using hardlinks, but the kicker is I think every installer, and explorer report the size as multiples of the actual file size.
Id love somone to tell me that I'm wrong here, as that seems pretty crazy to me!
A fairly common reaction when explaining to people that they had been infected, was to be shouted at for "sending my PC viruses".
Sadly I think that before any quarantine plans can be implemented a pretty major shift in user perception must occur - otherwise the level of bitching that will occur will be apocalyptic.
However, I don't work in support anymore - I say go for it
Running under its own power
Perpetual motion ?
Yeah, either I haven't had enough coffee today or they are promoting the wrong aspect of the project here.
