And it's a great day for astronomy folks... what? It's a typo? I'm shocked, shocked to find that an article on Slashdot was not capably edited prior to submission.
MS ought to have realized by now that they need to just throw away any even-numbered releases. The only numbered releases that have not been failures due to function or usability have all been odd-numbered (assuming you forget about all versions before Windows 3.1). And just skipping the even numbers won't work because it's the ideas in the even releases that are failures.
Though perhaps it might be that MS needs the every-other-version beatings to actually produce decent versions?
1) Clueless submitter: Hey I have a solution!
2) Burning Man: All the reasons why it is, in fact, not a solution.
3) Clueless submitter: Re-sends idea from (1) with more lipstick
4) Slashdot scrum ensues.
5) Profit? (Who, exactly?)
What's even worse is the Slashdot commenters who thought there still wasn't quite enough lipstick on (3) and added their own to it.
bought Motorola for anything other than the patents, you're just fooling yourself. Having Motorola Mobility come with them was just the secret decoder ring in the cereal box. MM is not really as fun as it seemed at first, so time to put the toys away.
Ha ha ha ha ha! Whew. Thanks, that was a good one.
Wait, they're serious?

Um, how about it's because Tesla makes real cars and not bad sci-fi movie props.
Seriously, this is like the worst of the military command structure, where every time a new commander steps in they have to change everything around just to pad their package.
It doesn't need to be "flat". Doing that says that the height of design style was AOL in 1997.
Ives, stop being an ego-maniacal clown and try introducing some real design improvements.
tchotkes that will set off your hay fever. Can't wait.
the great and powerful! If you want to see the boson you must bring me an 11th dimensional super string. That shouldn't take you more than 2 years.
In a related announcement, they will also be testing particulate matter concentrations with sensors mounted on diesel semi-tractors driven around the port facilities.
Would have been much easier to allow everywhere and let the individual players block incomming "flirtatious" dialogue for their own character(s). That way you could block or allow all such dialogue if you wanted, or just for your specific "female protocol droid" preference.
...turn on the gaydar jammer, would you?
Will someone put these motherfuckers against the wall and shoot them already?
Thanks for the direction, comrade. In other news, Stalin's ghost now posting to Slashdot. (And this is +5 Insightful? Seriously?)
