I would love to see that law. When will I be seeing the drives for ReactOS and Minix 3?
Really? It can run on an IBM PC?
It is called radio.
Office is a different strategy.
On CP/M you had Wordstar, Dase II, and often SuperCalc or PerfectCalc. On a lot of other machines like the Apple II, TRS-80, and the Pet you had Visicalc.
When the PC came out Wordstar and Visicalc thrived for a short time then cam Lotus 123 and WordPerfect. WordStar died as did VisiCalc. Dase hung on for a good while fighting off Paradox.
Then you had Windows and Office took over most of the market.
Microsoft is desperate to not have Office go the way of Wordstar, Visicalc, Wordperfect, and Lotus123. When you change platforms new software has a great opportunity. Olders systems are left trying to not tick off their customer base by being too different but at the same time fit with the new platform.
" Refreshing, no question, and in direct contrast to Google and Apple as you point out."
Actually no it isn't in direct contrast.
When Apple first entered the mobile market they only had to worry about Blackberry, Wince, and Palm. In the smartphone market there was no real dominate player. It was in many ways a lot like the early days of micros with Atari, Apple, Commodore, Radioshack, Ti, and the CP/M machines fighting it out.
Apple and Google where friends and Google got Maps, search, and youtube on the iPhone.
When Android came out IOS was pretty much king. so Google kept putting their products on IOS to keep market share. Apple having the marketshare did not feel the need to put any services on Android. They used their services to keep market share.
Now Microsoft to get market share supports Android and IOS. Android and IOS see no reason to help Microsoft gain marketshare. It is the exact same pattern.
So do you feel better about yourself for being so offended by the sexism of 50 years ago?
Guess what racism and sexism where both more mainstream 50 years ago. The fact that they even where willing to test a woman was very progressive for the time.
Microsoft supports Outlook on Android and IOS. OneDrive works on IOS, Android, Windows and OS/X
Skype works on just about all platforms.
I guess Microsoft being number 3 in the mobile space makes them support more platforms.
Actually it is the opposite. You benefit preaching doom and gloom.
If your advice is taken what ever the worry can not happen because you stopped it. If good things that could have happened didn't no one will really notice.
If your advice is not taken you just take the "it is only a matter of time" and keep your true believers scared. Any failure no matter how small is a victory for you.
If your advice is not taken and something bad happens you where right all along.
You can not really fail being an anti.
"this is what I went through when I bought a retina macbookpro day one. There was a rough transition. I had to hack Word's internal settings to make Word usable. Firefox was unusable for close to a year."
Did you have to hack Safari to work on the retina? what about Apples office products?
You are talking about an issue where older software from a different vendor had issues vs the OS having issues on older hardware. This is a very different issue.
"It is. You can change that stuff easily."
So it would have been simple to default to the best font for each device. If DPI is x use this font.
Not a tragedy to be sure but it is lazy.
So customer that buys a brand new Air should just be happy that they get a bad experience for the next three years?
You didn't really answer the question of why not pick the font based on the DPI of the display? One of the bit selling points of the Mac was that they where resolution independant. What the comes down to is laziness or arrogance. I am sure that someone will make a utility to change the default font on the Mac if it is not already available in settings.
"You're so full of FUD that I can only wonder which energy conglomerate you're shilling for. Care to tell us?"
He is not he is a green.
You see the truth is that there are a good number of "activists" that make a living telling people that "you never know".
The will spout off about solar and ignore the problems like storage and the fact that solar peak is not the same as usage peak. They will just use buzzwords like "smart grid" and then complain about the cost of nuclear being greater than natural gas but ignore the cost of solar and wind being higher than natural gas.
It has become a religion and if you dare to be pro-nuclear your friends and the other people you self identify with will shun you.
It is simple.
If you know you are guilty they will offer you a chance to take a deal, save the courts a lot of time and effort, and rewards the guilty party for choosing to be honest. Yes it is honest for a reward but still being honest.
If you are caught and you know that you are actually guilty of breaking the law but try to get out of it they will make you an example.
Orlando is not in south Florida it is in central Florida.
In the US criminal records are public records the exception is for juveniles. Once you are an adult you are expected to follow rules.
What I do not get is this statement. "i spent 22.5 months in Florida prison's, all because I got caught with some MDMA and weed at a rave in Orlando, FL in 2001."
If it was that guys first conviction and he did not have "a lot" of MDMA and weed aka amounts that make it look like you are dealing. Up to 20 grams is only a misdemeanor. MDMA is another story but unless he refused a plea deal or resisted arrest he should not have gotten anything but some community service and probation.
They used 8 for a number of reasons. The biggest was because they didn't want to spend money on a reactor that was so big it could only be used on a carrier.
