Seems to me a better solution would be to research ways to convert from DC to AC more efficiently. Currently there's up to a 40% power loss. That's just begging for some research money....
...I'd like access to all of the software.
Given the current state of security in "smart" automobiles, who would want to be able for anyone to plug something into the USB port of the car's entertainment system and completely update the software for the car?
Isn't that just asking for your car to be hacked?
...I wonder if people get too hung up on system icons...
The icons are the first things the user sees when the desktop loads. The icons are what is shown when the notebook or PC sits on display in a store.
The icons are the visual "come hither" for the operating system. An OS with unappealing icons has to work harder to appeal to customers.
...that is one of the very nice things about firefox....... configurability.....
Configurability is slowly being removed. Remember how configurable the UI used to be before the Australis disaster hit?
...Just look at some of the self-entitled and abusive comments here on Slashdot....
Those comments started out as constructive criticism. However, Mozilla pressed on with their determination to ignore and alienate users.
Now Mozilla is getting the criticism they have earned.
Mozilla/Firefox has a problem. A big one. The first step in solving a problem is to identify its cause and not, as you attempt, to blame others for Mozilla's self-inflicted problems.
Tell that to Win8 when it starts complaining
The problem there is that you're using Windows 8. Get a real OS, not one with a toy interface.
"With Suggested Tiles, we want to show the world that it is possible to do relevant advertising and content recommendations while still respecting users' privacy and giving them control over their data."
First the advertisements will be optional. Then they won't be.
How long before the few remaining Firefox users realize that Mozilla is behaving like any other money-grabbing corporation?
Display ads are still an important bread-and-butter income stream.
Display ads are still an important malware distribution mechanism..
The Start menu takes up nearly half the screen with large icons, yet truncates the text for those large icons because the text has not been allocated enough room. Really, really poor UI design.
I lost control of the Windows Update process, there were no options for me to select besides, ~allow Microsoft to brick my computer at any time~.
My versions of Windows 7 are supported with security updates until 2020.
So tell me again, why do I want to dump Windows 7 and move to Windows 10? To please Microsoft is not a valid answer.
