The Community 2013 is way more stable than any of the Express versions, because it is the Visual Studio 2013 Pro, with different licensing. I uninstalled Express few days ago, and I don't think it left a lot of DLLs anywhere, only thing I can find is registry key: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WDExpress (with Visual Studio it's named HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio)
Also the Community version supports TypeScript out of the box if it's your cup of tea. I tried to get TypeScript working on Express builds only to find out it was really buggy.
Really, the story is that Obama was unaware of spying for 8 years! How on earth is that possible? 2007 - 2008, he was Chairman of United States Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on European Affairs, and after that as a president.
I know there is oversight, but geez it must be really loose. You'd think that those two posts would let one know about things.
They are, it's just that individual states of Europe has a intelligence budget so low, they couldn't even spy on their own citizens let alone foreigners abroad.
Why should I, as a citizen of Europe, have less rights online than US citizens? Especially when we are talking about companies (Google, Microsoft, etc.) that operates within EU, whom are also forced by US law to give away stuff to US government.
Europe should create laws where service providers (working directly or indirectly in Europe) can't give the user's data to third parties without (very least) informing the user in question. Purpose of these laws should be aimed at conflicting with US's FISA request-law which prevents me from knowing if my data is given away or not.
Of course, reading the post would have explained. Clicking the hamburger next to Most discussed seems to do the trick.
However I'm not sure if that "standard" is a good default, the pictures (at least at the moment) seem utterly useless. FreeBSD logo that fills the entire vertical space? Really?
I must be one of these morons. It often happens to me that Google Chrome address-bar (omnibar) throws in the auto-completion just when I'm about to press the enter. Then after looking at results for a while I find out the stuff I typed is appended with crap.
Now that I bothered to write about my stupidity, I'm considering turning the auto-completion off from address-bar.
What happens if you click a tile on this overlay menu you speak of?
Cause the problem is not just the menu, it's the applications. For desktop users it's aggravating to jump between full-screen metro apps and regular desktop apps.
It would be far better (now that the metro apps can be sized nearly arbitrarily) for those who want desktop experience to allow them to run metro apps in regular windows fully resizable & draggable. This way it wouldn't break the desktop experience.
Also, I think Google Chrome is first browser to implement click to play flashblock in browser, and that is a good thing.
Settings -> Content Settings -> Plug-Ins and select "Click to play". You can also make exception like PDF reader to allow always.
Danske Bank requires Java browser plugin to access their online banking, because it supposedly "enhances security".
In reality: Online payment's have become nightmare to do cause it frequently crashes during payment, and it's not always clear how you can restart only the payment process to avoid doing duplicate order to web store.
For their defense I can say that after last bug/update cycles of Java they seem to have become so frustrated also that they've decided to scrap that requirement, and in few months or so they too are removing the Java requirement!
There is probably many crucial systems still relying on that browser plugin support, unfortunately.
I think Google is missing the point when it tries to focus on "fashionable" side (or lack of) in the glasses.
Once it becomes useful, it has a potential to replace all displays and soon after the fashionable point becomes moot as people really want the thing. Yes it will be ugly first, but just like tablets, hands free dongles, USB sticks etc. the exterior will mature once it's useful.
But I'm afraid Google is doing this wrong, just like Bill Gates and Microsoft as they tried to introduce concept of tablets too early, when the technology was not ready.
1. Ubuntu is a first stepping stone.
Huh? To n+1 variant of set top boxes? Which are controlled by strange mess of makers, with all different idea of hardware / controllers / remotes... Sounds like true opportunity for game developers!
2. I believe game producers are going to see this as a blessing
Linux world? Where is that world? Not on this earth, nothing even remotely shows the "Linux desktop" is gaining traction. In fact whole concept of desktop is dying and gets replaced with: tablets, smartphones, mini-laptops and finally small pie for professionals/offices who really need desktop. Linux is not leading on any of the new platforms which have emerged.
3. When you are first to capture a market, you become the dominant player.
That is irrelevant, Linux is not capturing any market besides servers (which they have been doing without Valve just fine).
