Yes, and larger, and heavier. You are paying for the form factor. Shall I compare you laptop to a much more powerful desktop that was cheaper?

drivers, not driver's
Actually, the driver's still work, but there is a greater risk of malicious code without the signing. They can still release the drivers. It falls on the consumer to take a risk to keep their 13+ year old (after 2014) OS. I still fail to see how this is Microsoft's problem.
How is this insightful?
It is on the burden of the hardware manufacturers to write drivers, not the OS developer. Especially for new hardware. How in any way does the blame fall on XP and Microsoft?
"We could possibly see drivers going 95 up to 100 miles per hour."
Hate to break it to Sandra, but that's the usual speed in many parts of the country.
and may be hard to find. But the best book I always refer back to as what seriously started me on the path to being a programmer was Microsoft QuickBasic Primer Plus. QB may be old, but it is still available and the book is an amazing text as to the details of programming and why/how things work.
Except I am not repub. So you fail.
Yes, but the court system deals with frivolous cases on a daily basis which means that this one isn't special.
To be fair, it was the party that sued, not the state. So, in theory, tax payer money was not involved.
I just don't get the fearmongering.
It should be ticked on by default. Most people out there really don't care about being tracked. Tracking is extremely valuable to the market in terms ad conversion and sales. This allows businesses to stay in business and employ people. There are few people out there who really care at all about the fact that they are being tracked, and those people generally know how to find the privacy settings in a browser. No one is going to actively seek out a setting to allow websites to track them because if they don't care if they are tracked, they also don't care if they aren't.
I think that was definitely part of the reason for Unity, the other I am pretty sure was for Touch PCs which are starting to gain some popularity.
Since tablets are considered a fundamentally different device than a desktop/laptop, I feel this is where Linux could shine. Ubuntu always seemed to be in the best position to capitalize on it as well. I am anxious to see what they come up with because I would almost definitely ditch my iPad for an Ubuntu tablet. I should note that no machine in my regular use runs Ubuntu or any other form of Linux as it could not replace what I need my desktops and laptops to do.
Enterhost, been using them for over 8 years. Great service and a lot of bandwidth
Everything military is going civilian, when I got out of the USAF 4 years ago, they were in the process of outsourcing (or A-76'ing as it was called) all of the base support squadrons. Comm (which is where I was), Civil Engineering, and Mission Support were all going civilian to "save cost".
