To put it more precisely: Microsoft knew tablets would be big someday... but rather than make a new lightweight OS that was adequate to a tablet, they tried to cram clunky old Windows into the new format. The result was those x86 tablet PCs that were huge, ran crazy hot, and had a completely inadequate interface.
I wonder who raised them?
The television did.
Perhaps people who give a shit will fork it.

Several governments around the world have moved to free software, or are in the process of doing so. If they think free software is viable...
Why the hell are they using Windows? Government agencies should not be allowed to use proprietary software in the first place. Let stupid private companies throw themselves into any vendor's lock-in, but the people's data should not be subjected to it, ever!
Which is why I think, maybe companies should not be allowed to buy or merge with other companies. If you're not good enough to live alone, you die, period.
After the FB/Oculus news, I looked into alternatives and found about this InfinitEye project from France that claims to do 210 degree of horizontal FOV, fully covering the human peripheral vision (while the Rift only does only 90 degrees). I'd pay attention to this one now.
IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!

Only if they show tits.
Then again, Facebook has not broke Instagram?
That's implying that Instagram was worth jack shit to anyone but retarded, duckface-selfie-taking, fake-blonde teenage girls.
Bill Nye won out? Huh, that's interesting. Here in Brazil, back in the 90s, both shows were aired: Beakman's World was quite popular, while Bill Nye was completely ignored. In fact, I recall watching Nye once and thinking... "this Beakman-wannabe is much less fun."
These days, interface designers think a HIG should be printed on toilet paper. Browsers now always look "alien" to whatever environment where they're run. Here's a tip, you dolts: cut this "too cool for rules" bullshit. Each system gives you standard windows, standard buttons, standard decorations, standard everything -- use them, always! Regard the HIG as a holy bible! Make the program belong with the system!
With all the movies based on old cartoons these days, wouldn't this be a good time for a Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors movie?
Getting children used to a free, non-proprietary operating system -- weaning them off Microsoft's teats, so to say -- is a social good in itself. To abandon this goal was a huge mistake.
