Besides having one "killer" feature (for now) VirtuatBox has one "suidical" feature: being involved with Oracle in any way.
By definition you are an idiot. Scurry back to your desk, Microsoft deserves more like you.
It would be stupid to keep the spares running, that comes right off their life. Maybe just spin them up once a month. What I don't see mentioned is the falling cost of drives... failed drives are normally replaced by newer, higher capacity drives, or they should be. IOW, they should plug in spares over time with planned maintainance instead of dumbly overprovisioning those things permanently.
It's actually been pathetically far behind every other first world country for about ten years. Germany got the memo around 2000 and had things pretty much straightened out by 2002, pulling from way behind US (can you spell ISDN) to way ahead (competitive dial up market with affordable monthlys).
The US has had the most pathetic deal for internet access of any major industrial for ages. Telco monopoly, compliant regulators and general apathetic cluelessness about what is best for the common good.
Good, now show us one for sale like that. Oh you can't?
Quote>>> The commonly accepted definition of "a PC" is "able to run Windows."
I said "able to run Windows" asshole.
The commonly accepted definition of "a PC" is "able to run Windows." Hence the MAC vs PC commercials. Are you really that stupid. Yes you are. I bet you are wearing your woolen M$ underwear right now.
You are intenionally being dense. Or you are really dense. I guess both: you are acting especially dense because you are actually pretty dense at the best of times and your only superpower is acting dense so you wallow in it.
Let Wikipedia explain it to you, apparently the one person who does not know:
"PC" is an initialism for "personal computer". However, it is used in a different sense: It means a personal computers with an Intel x86-compatible processor running Microsoft Windows (sometimes called Wintel)
Or let Microsoft play word games like you with a federal judge, and see how that works out.
If a Chromebook is a PC then show me one running Windows.
Once again, I said PCs, not Chromeboxes. Well, I understand by the prevarication that is going on thick and fast that you do indeed know that Microsoft is still a flagrant lawbreaker. Firmed up my opiinion on that.
Sorry, you didn't show me PCs running non-Windows, you showed me Chromeboxes. Are you dense?
BTW, I only see PCs on Dell's front page. So much for believing a Microsoft apologist.
Show me the PCs running anything but Windows, and I won't call your post a straw man. Microsoft continues to exercise and abuse market power in the PC market, please stick to the issue.
