It's a good thing none of these industrial controls require IE 6 with an unsupported OS with updates turned off requiring a live internet connection or anything stupid. For a minute that would imply mass incompetence
YEAH and I could say IE 6 is just as secure as no security in design does not mean more exploits. One of my clients who switched from XP to 7 noticed a drop in malware.
Newer kernel features reduce 0 days as evident in 7 compared
Actually Windows 9 will have HUGE impact on games as the DirectX will have mantle like performance where CPU waits on redraws are near gone. Trim in raid and PCI ssd is nice too and cortana
I can't find anything to fix. 7 is better and has more features and takes advantage of modern hardware
Except that programs are running faster on Windows XP than on Windows 7, because the OS take less CPU resources.
Bang! Idiot destroyed.
Yeah on a Pentium IV. On a modern i5 the same code will run faster as a new kernel supports better smp, page swap, ram buffers, and the runtimes use all your CPU instructions. Not part as XP had to run on Pentium IIs.
Yeah that's real secure. FYI your chrome is not even sandboxed on it because the kernel is so ancient.
Am I in the minority of prefering the ribbon over crappy nested menus all over the place and mouse hover/ change preview?
It only took me a week to get used to it and I don't use open office because the menus are all so cumbersome.
Has Slashdotters aged into their 40s and hate change or perhaps many use Linux so much that adopting to ribbons never took place? I also like the keyboard shortcuts integrated into the ribbon when I hit alt. No mouse nor learning combos thanks to the visuals.
I have not heard anyone outside of Slashdot complain about the ribbon in years
That my friend is what the difference between an i5 and i7. For having many apps and tabs open an i5 is fine. For compiling code more ram channels from an i7 help
Not true at all! My phenom II with a ati 7850 slows to a crawl with polygon counts in bf 4 and swtor in the imperial fleet. Guild members with i7s with lower end cards have double fps.
The card needs polygons fed to reach render and wait upon DirectX to redraw. A faster CPU is required
But the users of i7s are not the friendly receptionist at work or Grandma checking her FB. These are almost all gamers mixed with software developers and a few niches.
So yes CPU is important. If not then the rest of the normal users buy i3s and maybe an i5 if they have more cash and do heavy workflows. Unless you make 1 tb video edits or play Wolfenstein the average users won't see any benefit between a 4 core i5 or i7.
A landlord can't say to UPS nice packages. It would be a shame if something happened to them before the tenants got em. Come let's talk? My uncle has a special insurance program to prevent accidents like this from happening.
That is extortion and interference with interstate commerce. Who the hell does Netflix have for their lawyers.
This is a brand new apartment complex just built. SO yes this is a new thing since they have a monopoly and the supreme court said they could do whatever they want they simple are.
That is not the issue.
The issue is you do not have free speech like the mega telecoms do with a fleet of lawyers, lobbyists, and rolodexes of your supposedly representatives. Free speech is something that can buy a lot of things that you and I can not afford. Notice I did not say money or bribery.
As long as we have a corrupt government we ARE FREAKING DOOMED.
We have corn with pesticides from genetically engineered crops whose pollen cross contaminates everything which in high enough doses causes infertility. We have roads and bridges falling apart. We have teachers who can be fired for not teaching creationism as science in the classroom alongside evolution. This issue is just one symptom of many.
DO we need a revolution next? I mean the Tea Party was kind of like this but the Koch brothers have their hands in that now and they are nte ones threatening any GOP politician they will lose their job if they even acknowledge global warming exists!
I am pissed off. I am moving into a new apartment and my choices are centuryLink DSL which AT&T throttles or Comcast. If I go with Comcast I need to pay for cable TV with HBO tier to gain internet access for $99 a month. I do not even freaking own a TV??!@
Now I am still downthrottled on top of that!
I remember in the good old days when you were told your system is obsolete and to upgrade your OS after 3 years.
5 years is a long time for support.
