Oh come on. The comment of "google spyware", combined with the fact that it does not make any sense to buy a chrome device if your intention is to put windows on it ( there are several availible at simular price points from a variety of sources), leads me to believe that they were trolling.
Oh, they all apply, but have a lesser effect on the larger federal government. There isn't nearly as much oversight in corruption of state representitives or state senators as there is in DC. In several states, including the one I live in, most people couldn't name or point out their state reps in a line up. There is little to no reporting on what is going on or why in the state capital.
Your reasons why comparisions are good, are the reason why I would allow them, but they'd need to be reviewed first to ensure they sound like good ideas and a good faith effort is being launched.
Exactly. States can't be counted on to do things better. It too easy for them to be corrupted by corrupt politicians, labor unions, large donors, mass ignorance of voters ect. Just look at all the attempts by states to remove evolution from text books or insert intelligent design.
If I were all powerful, I'd craft federal legislation that sets a national standard core curiculum, and set up a board that would review requests from states to opt out. If they wanted to expirament they could, but their plan would have to be approved. So they can't do stupid things like drop all math/science/litterature education.
Either there is a whoosh sound, its under my threshold of hearing, or your counting skills suck.
Obviously trolling, but kind of an interesting question as the hardware isn't bad. I don't know why anyone would buy it with the intention of windows-izing it, but maybe the build quality is better than what the send windows in? Any case there are a million reasons for doing anything.
Only 32 bit windows would fit, due to the 16 GB of storage.
Also not sure if the open source Coreboot will work with windows 8.1. You'd need to install seabios first, that's supposed to work for earlier versions of windows. Not sure about 8.
If only we could figure out a way to send a message to another person around the globe that didn't require them to be physically present at a particular location, nor to perform any action to recieve this message.
Alas, it eludes us yet.
Same degree of difficulty. Now you have to figure out the timezone offset. If we're all on UTC, then you have to figure out the daylight offset. Its not anymore difficult. You've presumably adapted, if you are currently doing this.
I agree in principle. The problem is actually dates, not time. Most people would have issues with the date changing while they were awake. That would complicate meetings, more than anything else.
So what does the international market for desktop operating systems look like these days? Still 90% Windows, right?
Not sure what your point is.
Eh, Every team has a bad Century or two. Right? We'll get that first world series championship in wrigley any year now. Just you watch.
Crypto-currencies can still be many things without "long term inherent stability", except for currency of course.
" I don't know about you, but the idea that every single person in America who has ever had an injection has been protected because we harvest the blood of a forgettable sea creature with a hidden chemical superpower makes me feel a little bit crazy. This scenario is not even sci-fi, it's postmodern technology.'"
What? I think you are assuming that we share you beliefs that this is somehow wrong or soemthing? Or are you just marvelled at scietific acomplishments? Or are you the guy with the beret from xkcd, who gets awestruck with danishes?
If every user of stock windows 8 does not notice Metro... They need to seek medical attention immediately.
I think you meant something along the lines of "Not everyone hates Metro". But to be clear and fair, its the first thing any one with eyes will notice, and as such it deserves all the criticism it gets.
Yeah, there are some great things about windows 8 that does get lost by most users due to the Fkup that is metro. But this is how it is with Microsoft, great improvements behind the scenes get overlooked because they did something else even stupider and more noticeable. Such is their gift to the software world.
Compare/contrast with OSX early in its life. Early times, it was all about the back end, which pissed off OS 9 users as the UI had regressed significantly, even though it was much more stable and better performing. Eventually with the backend good enough they switched attention to the UI and fixed a bunch of regressions. Most of the complaints went away. Microsoft changed the UI for the worse for most of its users. Now its slowly fixing it, I think. Or making it much worse, its tough to tell sometimes with them. It really seems like they don't have a masterplan for the desktop/metro interfaces and are just floating in the proverbial wind. That kind of shit should have been done before any of the code was written.
I wouldn't return your request for an interview/ more details either.
Well, maybe a canyonero
