Ironic, isn't it? After saying that linux was free because it was worthless, microsoft finally admits its own os is worthless by giving it away in hopes of losing no further shares to linux because people have come to realize linux is priceless
Thanks! So that would mean that it is more likely that our universe is a simulation, right? Determinism would sort of imply it, since it can't play out any differently.
The way I've thought of it would be that it is theorized our universe is inside a black-hole; all space and time perceived is an illusion because it is all happening at the same time, in the singularity, making non-locality trivial to implement. I suppose the flaw is that you need multiple dimensions at right-angles to it to make sense of it...
I really like that, man.
I'm not peer-reviewed, so it doesn't matter, but I like your idea
If somebody with any say at Slashdot is reading this, please do the right thing and get the focus back to where it used to be, on science and technology. There are many, many other places we can go to read and bitch about the day-in, day-out shenanigans of American politics. Slashdot shouldn't be one of them.
You... I like you
You can read about it here:
It's a better solution because
- You DON'T need a Windows license
- It's smaller: You can run more apps with less memory
I agree with you that there are probably gravitational perturbations to the Oort cloud or inner asteroid-belt that result in extinction-events but I also expect that there is another phenomena: the varying levels of cosmic rays as we pass through the galaxy's arms.
FWIW I like your explanation, simple concise, logical.
I'm just sayin'
... or to sell any information they have on you to the highest bidder
Yes, but considering TCP is a core part of IP... what you did kind of falls flat.
Nope, that's like saying hamburgers are a core part of cows.
You make hambugers out of cows, you don't make cows out of hamburgers.
You make TCP out of IP, you don't make IP out of TCP.
It might be bloated and slow. But it is also easily extendable and human readable.
What's could be good if HUMANS were intended to read it.
Yeah, it's a good thing no humans work as programmers or ever debug this thing
Agreed, but at the same time more people are staying home and watching DVDs
You say it isn't how it went down but I put to you that the bigger the company, the more insulated from everything the policy-makers are, in general.
And when you actually start to believe your own hype, well there's no telling what dumb things you might do.
The first person to get an additional head grafted onto their shoulders should be declared president of the galaxy!
We visit a Microsoft boardroom, where execs are discussing their future plans
Exec 1: Hey, I've got an idea, you know how on that android-y thingy, you can download free apps but to make their money back on them, the developers serve ads? Why don't we do that?
Exec 2: You mean serve people ads with software they've already paid for???
Exec 3: Genius! Let's break for lunch!
