I'll concede to that. I've always used Nvidia for exactly that reason.
If the comment I was replying to is off-topic, then the one i replied to is as well.
The fact is other than describing it as 'liquid metal' they do not explain how it actually moves or where its actual processor is and how it communicates with the rest of its, for lack of a better term, 'mass'. We don't know what it looks like on a microscopic level, for all we know it *is* a ton of little nano machines. We certainly do not know any differently from that and the description in the movie isn't adequate enough to say I'm wrong.
You can get the BSOD back instead of reboot somewhere in the settings.
Even in 2005 you'd be waiting a long time to actually see either happen.
I ditched MS for Linux 10 years ago and will never go back to that bloated/slow POS they call an operating system.
Amusingly 'unstable' is not on that list.
You actually want BSODs?
Who said anything about Win9x?
Ah, interesting. When I did programming in the 640k days I used 320x200. I don't even remember being able to hit VGA res @ 256 colors.
I did some programming in DOS, never even came close to that limit. That's why I'm curious. Look up how much working memory the NES had some time, Duck Hunt clones wouldn't even need buffers for scrolling!
The movie didn't show us the alloy under a microscope.
I once programmed an arduino to move my mouse cursor in the shape of a square to keep my workstation from auto-locking per company policy. There's a slider control on the Arduino board that I have that I used more-or-less as an on-off switch. For fun I'd hook it up to my supervisor's machine just to hear him try to explain it to somebody.
What was so hard about making a Duck Hunt clone fit in that memory footprint?
'Common sense' and 'studies' are not interchangeable.
You're witnessing the failure of that philosophy.
How many models of Android phone do you think are available right now?
Yeah, you can go buy any other device that only has slightly less bloatware.
Sorry I didn't catch the joke, it was covered in the blood of a technician.
That'd be funnier if those stories weren't mainly about how the laws weren't really working.
