Or is an AAS so basic they don't even teach portforwarding has an option to use alternative ports? (don't ever use the standard remote desktop ports in the first place)
Having had to teach basic network troubleshoting skills to guys fresh out of school already made me doubt the level of education nowadays.
Which is exactly why I went to fluxbox some time ago after having used KDE mostly with a short time of Ubuntu with Gnome 2 in between.
I just wanted to easily get to the applications I use daily and not be distracted by dialogs I didn't care about. And fluxbox gave me exactly that; simple, functional window decorations and a taskbar that I could turn off because I can open the fluxbox menu with a key combination. My desktop is empty aside from osdclock.
I also prefer any application that does what it's meant to do and not bother me with unwanted tips or tricks.
And if I want to go flashy I use feh to cycle through wallpapers (yes, of raunchy midget-horse porn with some hot grits and what's-her-face thrown in for subtle flavouring, you bunch of insensitive clods!)
Not neccessarily. I made a maintenance procedure clearing temporary files and registry with ccleaner and MyDefrag to organize files on disk for our customers and it solves most slowdown by far (excluding the usual malware toolbars etc.)
That eliminated most re-installs and uneccesary expenses. Not to mention losing preferences.
I could tell you, but then you'd get a visit from people with a very dark fashion sense.
Then again, you might be lucky and get psychologically scarred for life.
Debian testing, Libreoffice, Eclipse, GIMP, Iceweasel, a whole bunch of other programs and utilities; 10G used on disk (including 2.3G home directory), about 1G RAM actively used of 3, the rest is cache.
No matter how you look at it, Microsoft has never been in the lean and mean camp. Neither with OS nor Office, database, virtualisation software.
Maybe open source development fosters a more efficient use of hardware by its nature?
The latter are rare to find.
The protagonists seem to be making the same dumb choices the teenagers do in the haunted house that gets them killed.
Maybe it's good, but the summary didn't entice me to look further into it.
And that's why I make a more concious effort on my installations which (time=money)!=cheapskate, which was my point to the parent.
Since running a simple, clean desktop I can never get comfortable using Windows (desktop nor server).
Unfortunately in reality most offices have users with full access to their PC's (because they feel entitled to it) or at least their profile so they can run whatever they want. The only thing blocking their behaviour is up-to-date anti-virus software.
So, how does the kernel know which executables are legit to run?
If I want to run my CreateDancingBunniesDrawingsIn0Days.exe I would give it permission just like the new update from my office suite because I don't know any better. Unless there is a program which recognises the executable as malware and warns me. Something that gets updates hourly from a central source of known malware maybe?
Better yet, we need something where we allow programs only specific access to resources. Including a buffer for disk access that can be flushed or written to disk after confirmation.
I doubt it'll fit in 100KB though.
Goods are placed and retrieved at specific locations. If something's wrong a manual check and correction can be done, or maybe have one or two robots with good visual recognition randomly check locations and the contents for correctness.
No more audiovisually distracting intrusive advertising burning bandwidth and CPU to peddle things you've already bought or looked into.
Newspapers and magazines had people managing advertising themselves, picking relevant products and the way it's presented. Why can't websites manage it like they do and take responsibility for it?
I use links2 as my main browser and only use Iceweasel+NoScript if the page is interesting enough to read. Haven't used an adblocker in a while since NoScript seems to work well enough for me.
