At my house, we call SyFy "the reason we cancelled the cable service"
Hah! And people said Apple would never release their Reality Distortion Field tech for general use!
the first non-european pope
Whoa -slow down there, cowboy!
Why yes, sir, I am.
Not exactly a regret, but I bet you he cries himself to sleep at night when he sees the reverses in software openness that the IT industry has made (going mobile, going cloud, etc) and the steps backwards we've made in the last few years.
It's gotta be hard to see the open source movement snatch defeat from the jaws of victory...
they don't get the girl at all.
But that still leaves running it in a virtual machine and taking a snapshot that way.
