Microsoft has turned their social marketing dept up to 11 on this release. They even did a Reddit AMA and gamed the shit out of it with hundreds of accounts only a month or two old. They are spending money to try and emulate the Apple fan-atacism that has worked so well for Apple.
Slackware -> Red Hat -> Debian -> Gentoo -> Debian -> Arch and I am stuck on Arch...
Start with Deepthroat Nine and work your way down. Then up. Then down...
Its not me I am concerned about getting installed. Its Joe Blow who just bought the machine and wants to try this Linux thing out. People make up their minds very quickly when dealing with new concepts. Microsoft knows this.
Too bad they have locked down their hardware vendors with UEFI certs etc and it will be a giant pain in the ass for a user to install Linux.
Does anyone else get horrible crippling motion sickness riding as a passenger in a car?
This would not work for me.
Am I the only one that thinks the porn studios are going to be all over this?
I am degree-less. I have been in the IT industry for 16 years now. I am a sr-System Administrator and I have hit the ceiling of what I can make in this position with my education. In retrospect I should have spent the 4-6 years when I was younger to go to school and pick up an IT related degree. My life would have been much easier had I done so and I would not have had to spend so much time proving myself capable. The piece of paper not only serves as a ticket into the industry but also serves as lubrication moving forward.
Speaking from experience there is no worse feeling then having a new fresh out of school graduate with no practical knowledge join your company and make as much or more then you. There is no worse feeling then being over looked by a member of HR only to be told outside the hiring process that the only reason you lost the position was that an applicant with a university degree and not even a 10th your experience got the position because the HR person believes that "If I had to spend 4 years in university to get a job everyone else has to as well".
I make a really good wage and I have a great job, but I live in fear of moving to a new position or being forced to find a new position as the ability to get my foot in the door is always uncertain.
At 37 years old and 16 years in, I am considering going back to school to pick up a piece of paper that states I am capable of learning to do what I have been doing for the last 16 years. So yeah, take the time now to do it, not when you have a family to support and obligations that make it infinity more difficult.
Downloaded over 10 million times, HijackThis generates reports to help users analyze and fix an infected or problemed computer. But the tool is not designed for novices – and doesn’t actually determine what’s good or bad. That’s up to you, but it is a good way to keep an eye on things and possibly locate anomalies that may have been missed by other security products. Trend Micro warns that if you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s probably not a good idea to make any changes to your computer settings and system files.
Trend Micro acquired the tool from creator Merijn Bellekom in 2007, and has offered it for free ever since, but now is making the code available to the public. The code, originally written in Visual Basic, is now officially available at Sourceforge here."

The small amount of research I just did on the zenithink c71, indicates that they have a very very high failure rate. Something like that could easily douse this spark before it ignites.
Mdaemon all ready allows you to set notifications with a start time and end time.
Why not set him up with a brain computer interface?. At its most basic level it should work as well if not better / faster then his cheek switch.
I wish I could go back in time and slap myself for being involved in some of these projects in my youth. We just used them to flood other people off irc though, and I don't think I know anyone that actually wrote vx to spread the net. Its sad when your children grow up to be assholes.
640k should be enough for anyone...
