... they took the Win 7 desktop + the win 8 kernel and called it windows 10. Job done. The days when anyone cared about all these GUI toys like the charms bar/continuum/whatever on a PC is long gone - people have got all that crap on their smartphones now.
"We're dumping RT"
"It's a pretty bad troll. 3/10 at most."
Newsflash - not many people over the age of 25 with some actual life experience - rather than just sitting in a dark room on twitter or 4chan - think snowdon is a hero.
"CO2 isn't the main Greenhouse gas, water vapor is. And it isn't even close."
Thats why I said "persistent". And water vapour sinply acts in a feedback loop for CO2. Its positive and negative effects - cloud reflectivity vs IR absorbtion - tend to cancel out.
"they come off as stupid ignorant parrots."
Perhaps look in the mirror. After you've learned to read properly.
Just what exactly do you expect will happen if you almost double the amount of the atmospheres main persistent infra red absorber? And if you think it will have no effect can you please explain why you think this.
I'm just curious because I'm sure your stand is based on sound scientific reasoning rather than a rather pathetic attempt at self justification for a "lets carry on business as usual I don't care" approach to the issue which unfortunately is a standard human response to a lot of big problems.
"The beginning of the universe does not need to conserve energy, but things as far as we can tell are conserved after that."
As fas as we can tell beig the important clause there. Besides which - the energy causing the expansion could be coming from outside our universe if one adhers to the multiverse theory , in which case all bets are off.
"Plus I have probably programmed more C++ code than both of you combined."
Oh thats highly unlikely my friend. I've been coding in C++ since the mid 90s.
Or maybe they thought your comment on superfluous was ignorant rubbish. C++ is badly implemented design wise but most of whats there is there for a damn good reason and if you don't understand why then you'd better stick to languages like Python etc.
Well you might not think you're skinny at 150 but most other people would.
The new Blackberry OS can run Android apps. Whats the problem?
"I'm 150 pounds and 5'10" "
I would suggest you actually need to *gain* some weight. Thats pretty skinny. (For a guy - if you're a woman ignore this).
Apart from Apple zealots people don't care what OS runs their smartphones so long as it looks nice - which is where Windows phone falls off a cliff.
It just has to be a lot less wrong than Windows 8.x. Enough so the corporates will eventually install it. Thats all that matters.
In what way? Internally maybe. From a user perspective on a PC? Absolutely not.
"both thrived in collaborative environments where it took multiple great minds working together to solve complex problems."
If the collaborative enviroments had anything to do with it then all those theories would have been released as a team effort.
"Your rant does not communicate arrogance, it communicates insecurity and an inferiority complex."
Does it? Oh. I guess I'd better go and have a cry then hadn't I.
" But it is ok, not everyone is cut out for teamwork,"
You're right - some of us don't need others to support various weaknesses which by your tone I'm guessing you do. But don't worry, you're just another sheep safe in the herd, bleat away and be happy.
