Or in china, where all of these 2mb/32mb cards come from!
It's software (hence the stupid comments about cost - it's effectively zero; android already has it, for example). Cyanogenmod can use that aspect of the AOSP stack or not, as they see fit, as can any other rom producer, or end user (if they've a rooted phone).
I'm sure with double token, torture apologist Rice on board they'll keep going for weeks yet.
From somewhere or other: "You can't shut us down. The internet is about the free exchange and sale of other people's ideas. We've done nothing wrong."

lol! What about Mr Walrus - is he gorgeous too?
Easier to boot from a Linux USB install, download and copy the files straight onto the windows drive then reboot.
That's more a factor of their cost than their durability.
Nothing close? Not even a Macbook or decent windows laptop?
I have no idea why Microsoft isn't pushing the fuck out of c# on Linux. At the moment for apps you have to use c++ or Java if you want to support both. They've already open sourced the compilers.
Read it for a laugh, just don't tell anyone about anything you read, and you'll be fine!
Luser is most definitely loser. Because most users are idiots. No ability to partially diagnose or even use common sense to solve any problem (ie. if the problem persists when you log onto another PC why do you think your PC has a problem?)

You don't get to call someone a sociopath just as an insult; it has a technical meaning.
Aren't they obliged to cancel your account if you ask, though? I mean, say you say "i want to close my account", they asked if you're sure, aware of the great deals etc. Say no, again, politely, then firmly "close my account now". What would happen if they continued trying to get you to stay and you stay silent? You aren't obliged to go through their script; you've told them your side of things. Can't you just stop paying them and if there's any come back tell them the date/time of the call, who you spoke to and ask what the problem is? Perhaps there needs to be a mandatory website/service where you just click/say "i'm out of here" and there's no come back on their part?

A decent bluetooth keyboard costs a lot of money. Keyboard dock? Why not just buy a laptop?

But i'm right though. That's what this story is about. Using a laptop, not a tablet, when you want to do something other than consume. How many people use laptops to write books, code etc. And how many use tablets. Thank you.

Sure. It's posssible to use a Raspberry Pi, and enter text via a morse code key. Wouldn't that be fun?

Many people - especially Slashdot readers - don't use Microsoft products unless, perhaps, they'd paid to use it at work (either as end users or developers). They're just not relevant to a discussion about tablets (they don't make any that have any impact on the market) or Chromebooks (which are usable in seconds, are free from the `you've moved your mouse - better restart your pc, oh, and don't forget to install todays set of patches for Windows and Java` crap to which Windows users subject themselves).
Chromebooks beat tablet hand's down because it's possible to do anything on a bloody tablet except surf or watch netflix. Students might want to..you know...type something in?
