Yeah, until I learned that you can just go straight to the traditional control panel interface and skip through the tablet-PC nonsense.
In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, administrators already cannot create or modify a user account inside Control Panel. They have to make changes "in PC settings", which is code-word for "click here to open the tablet-PC nonsense".
someone who's producing music, art, or literary works has probably had it drilled into them in school that plagiarism is wrong
So what can a composer of music do to determine whether or not he is accidentally infringing or plagiarizing? George Harrison got bit by this (Bright Tunes Music v. Harrisongs Music, the "My Sweet Lord" case).
If, on the other hand, their story, music, or artwork is original
Let me rephrase the question: How can someone starting out in the business determine what is original?
Anyway, I have better uses of my time than to waste another minute with you.
So maybe you need to be more creative to find a way that doesn't infringe the law
But how can a layman know where the line is for a particular use? The uncertainty itself has a chilling effect on creativity.
The world in general disapproves of creativity
We can see evidence of this in how copyright treats derivative works. All works build on other works, as Asimov wrote when he described connecting A to B to C, yet some forms of such building are forbidden by law.
We knew what was going on when you ran your anti-IBM campaign, sometimes even positioning yourself as arguing on behalf of our community. It was a way to lend credence to IBM and MS arguments during the SCO issue. To state otherwise is deceptive, perhaps even self-deceptive.
Florian, you would not be devoting all of this text to explaining yourself if you didn't feel the need to paint your actions in a positive light. That comes from guilt, whether you admit it to yourself or not.
Go write your app, and if you actually get to make any money with it you can give thanks, because it will happen despite what you worked for previously. Keep a low profile otherwise because your credibility is well and truly blown and you can only make things worse. And maybe someday you can really move past this part of your life. But I am not holding out much hope.
why would I want to download an encrypted image file that requires another separate, random app to decrypt and view it?
Ask users of Snapchat.
Show me a single app that will work on one of these versions but not the others.
Any application that requires Windows XP Mode, SUA, or more than 16 GB of RAM will work only on Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate according to this table. So does any application that is accessed remotely through Remote Desktop.
