Windows 7 was just a service pack for Vista. The renaming was a PR move to move away from the stigma.
Give them enough time and they'll iron out all of the flaws. Of course the Metro interface was inherently flawed from the beginning, but I think they've learned their lesson and supposedly Windows 8.2 which may be named Windows 9 is their solution to this whole mess.
But the GP does have a point, I see people still complaining about features of Windows 8 that were fixed in 8.1.
Yeah as soon as I read this I had propaganda bullshit sirens going off in my head.
TLDR: I have no idea how the internet works, but here's my opinion on it.
Obligatory: killing beta could be good for
Windows 8.1 features an update that allows bypassing the metro screen (the bit everyone complains about). In simple terms, It's the "fixed" version of Windows 8.
What management actually means by, "We want people who are passionate!" means that they live in a fantasy world where truly passionate people will come work for them for meager pay, lousy benefits, and an average work environment. It's the ultimate delusion of entitlement. Because why should talented people settle for them?
There is good management. But most of the time you see poor management who blame their own inadequate and incompetent leadership abilities on their employees. Many seem to look at subordinates as nothing more than a monkey there to churn out code -- like it's such an inconvenience that they have to deal with actual humans who have like, squishy innards that need nourishment and rest.
Add it to the list...
"Fast paced work environment!" We're understaffed.
"Opportunity for advancement." We have a high turnover rate.
"Flexible hours!" You'll never be able to predict the next week's schedule.
It's not the future.
I know because I actively participated in Starcraft mod/map making for over a decade.
Blizzard is hoping to pull another DotA on the custom designers. That is, steal our work and try to monetize it if the opportunity arises. They wanted to generate a lot of fun custom map stuff for SC2, but with a map distribution system that's bordering on complete useless, an editor that varies from feeling like programming with a fisherprice keyboard to feeling like using a keyboard to play on a fisherprice computer (seriously, there is no cow button on my daskeyboard), and no documentation to be found anywhere.
I dare say MOAR TOOLZ isn't exactly the answer here. Back in SC1 we managed pretty well without tools. We made our own and even managed to force Blizzard to patch the game because we figured out how to create executable programs in their maps.
I still do SC1 stuff, and until Blizzard really offers something substantial for SC2 mappers (not some stupid map payment system), the majority of the most brilliant designers aren't going to be doing anything for them.
The middle one is an easy trip to mental illness.
This all seems like a bunch pseudoscience BS, it's not worth any serious consideration.
I agree completely. I think we should start by replacing expensive American senior executives with foreigners. You know, we don't want to lose our competitive edge.
That would make sense since there are infinities all over the place.
The private sector did build the website.
I guess we can't infringe on tradition, especially if there's money involved. Better go tell those plantation owners they can have their slaves back.
The same could be said of humans.
Yeah that's not true, there's quite a campaign going for sharks. Gordon Ramsay is one name that comes to mind who has actually done work on it.
Dolphins make pigs look like drooling idiots. They're more than just an intelligent animal the same way someone talks about their dog being able to learn tricks. They're the second most intelligent species on the planet, fully capable of empathy, incredible memory, and self awareness.
We're not talking about cattle which can't even remember which patch of grass they were munching on one minute previous. These are creatures that are fully capable of experiencing the psychological trauma being inflicted upon them.
But never mind that. If we're going to justify this to animals, I can only begin to imagine what intelligent aliens might do to us -- or perhaps worse, think of us. And we're so presumptuous to say we come in peace.
