I have a jailbroken device which I use to install apps that Apple will not approve. I don't run any pirated apps.
If I have a jailbroken device and can't access the iTunes store the only way I can get new apps is to pirate them.
I've spent more money on apps for my iPhone than I've spent on software in the last 15 years - I really don't see how this will help them.
The only time I have had 2 computers at the same time in my life was when I purchased an Amiga 500 as the IIgs days were waning.
The amiga was vastly superior, even aside from how more games game out in the first week I owned my amiga than the entire time I owned the IIgs.
And lets not forget the demo scene.
God, i miss when computers were fun.
I think the parent is referring to resource bloat, not feature bloat.
I've never run FF out of the box with no extensions for very long so I can't say if the browser itself is the trouble or poorly coded extensions but we all know that FF has become slower and more resource intensive with age. 3.5 is some improvement but it still is not the same as it used to be.
A real artist makes art because they have to.
The world may wind up losing out on some vapid entertainment (the aforementioned Harry Potter) but real artists will continue to make art and will continue to eek out livings by doing so.
Is it wrong to mod down for "village explainer"?
Collaborative calendaring? Ability to delegate rights for your calendar and inbox to other employees? (Admin assistants) Ability to book physical resources for your appointments?
These are all mission-critical features for most medium to large businesses and as far as I've seen no open source solution comes close offering all the features of Outlook/Exchange. I'm sure some enterprising young lad might be able to hobble all the technology together but that is entirely different from having 1 product that just does the job - a hobbled together solution isn't going to take the enterprise by storm.
Again, this is the stumbling block for Linux adoption in the enterprise. Word, Excel, Power Point interoperability means nothing without an Exchange replacement.
People underestimate how important Exchange is.
The argument is always how Office is the real lynchpin and that if only a compatible document suite like Google docs or OpenOffice got a foothold Microsoft would be crushed but Outlook/Exchange is the REAL barrier to entry.
I work at a call center. EVERY corporate employee who calls me is using Outlook except the 1% of poor souls stuck with Lotus Notes and Domino.
Business relies on Outlook/Exchange.
or you can type the name of the program in the search bar ala spotlight on Mac.
