People who bitch about Windows ME don't even know why. The real complainers of the day didn't like the fact that there was no "Shutdown to DOS" option, but that was about it (and easy relatively easy to solve). Else, it was better than Win98 in every way. The rare people who tout "stability issues" were running cheap PCs with Cyrix processors and toilet paper RAM.
This is the same general reason people percieved Vista being "bad". It was installed on shit machines and it ran like shit on them. That, and people were still couldn't be bothered to treat their local user account as a non-admin, so UAC was "stupid".
Like I stated above, having an office job and not exercising, one would only need ~1300 calories for equilibrium. Eating under that, let alone 300-500 calories less than that to start shedding fat is not only HARD, it may be damn well impossible for some people
The problem isn't so much "too many calories" consumed, but that the sedimentary lifestyle people are accustomed doesn't require even close to the 2000 calorie "standard diet". If you drive to work, sit behind a desk all day, go home and even do mundane, unimpactful chores, like vacuuming and wiping things down, and average person would be lucky to need maybe 1200-1300 calories as their TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure). Even drinking nothing but water, and consuming mostly calorie empty foods like lettuce/salad, you still need your macronutrients, which when adding carbs and fat now will take you to your quite low TDEE with very little food/effort.
2. If you do go for C++, make sure to start learning on C++11 or C++14. C++11 significantly changes quite a lot about the language, and if you start with older C++ books, you'll have to unlearn a lot of stuff if you want to develop modern C++. C++14 has mostly just minor fixes to C++11.
Absolutely. I love these games, but the instruments are complete shit. I have never once even had a drum set for these games that could handle the input fast/reliable enough for the hardcore levels. The buttons on the guitars are so far apart as if they were made to be used by Sasquatch.

The reason being that Windows is more than an OS and a collection of predictable platforms. A video on Windows is a video, accessed through the appropriate API. You don't dynamically link to half a dozen libraries, hope they are there, and crash (or demand installation) when it isn't. You install the codec and now everything can deal with it.
This is ultimately the problem with linux. There is no defined platforms anywhere. Software that wants to use anything can't ever guarantee that it will be there. They aren't part of the OS, but rather, part of the users defined installation.
