Nebraska Furniture Mart??
Are you allowed to post in this thread? Isn't it some kind of conflict of interest?
Exactly what I had in mind when I said that.
Dangerous? How about massively increasing the time it takes to do basic administrative tasks. I've spent so much time trying to do things in Server 2012 that were absolutely simple from NT 3.5 to Server 2008 that I am officially now rebelling against their stupid Metro interface. Everything is fucked up.
Try debugging an L2TP VPN connection using the silly new interface - you pass from old school to Metro to old school to Metro three times. It just ain't worth it.
They can make a new UI, but nobody's gotta accept or use the damn thing.
Even that Windows 8.1 laptop I was talking about in my parent post: I messed with that for two months. Two days ago I reloaded the thing with Windows 7. I have work to get done, don't have the time to mess with the latest Microsoft fad. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Hey it worked in Star Trek...
Which one? What are you talking about?
So, Mr Complainer, got a better idea?
"Under pressure from US lobbying, the clause that mass surveillance constitutes a human rights violation was dropped earlier."
WTF is this shit from the so-called "Land of the free and the home of the brave"? Not US lobbying, let's call it what it is: Corporate lobbying. Sickening to see my country dying under my feet. Everything my parents told me about Russia being bad when I was growing up is instead coming true here. Damn Damn Damn... Where's that flux capacitor when I need one?
Six digits? What a bunch of n00bs...
I remember this from way too long ago. I figured it had wrapped up years ago. Was surprised to see it's just now reaching settlement. This was even before OJ's low-speed chase...
I did the same, installed Server 2012 on a new server, said WTF? Tried to run with it, had no luck with Hyper-V on 2012. Reformatted with Server 2008 R2, never looked back.
They have really got to dump that shitty Windows 8 interface on professional hardware. Ain't nobody got time for that...
Now Windows 8.1 on my laptop, it makes sense and I'm happy with it. But on a server? Give me a frikken break...
Usually people who just write MicroSoft instead of Micro$oft (or M$) are just showing their age. For the first few years of the company's existence it was Micro-Soft, and most people dropped the dash for MicroSoft. Everyone-hates-dashes...
It's not CHILDish, it's OLDish.
Save your rage for the "M$" people...
Take your dog whistling and get the fuck out of here, loser.
> Wake me when the US is actually irrelevant.
We aren't in any way at this time, but if we don't start caring for our citizens again and start handing out raises, we're fucked.
> Wonder what would happen to the US economy if the "full faith and credit" was questioned?
Apparently nothing... Do you not remember last month?
