Apparently none of these people remember "Chat with Liza".
And to what degree things might stop working if they can't contact those servers.
Yeah, that's a good way to put it. My grok of Win10 is that it's really an interface to the Windows Store. Basically an attempt to use the desktop to cash in on the smartphone "store" concept.
Well, to be fair, "minimum requirements" means "bare minimum to make the OS work, with nothing else running". But too often it's interpreted as "optimal requirements", another beast entirely.
I've told this story a time or two already, but what the hell... back in the olden days my test rig was a 486DX4-100 with 8mb RAM. One day I accidentally hooked up the wrong HD and here's Win2K booting up. Took a few minutes to reach the desktop, but was reasonably usable thereafter (even with no swapfile)... a little sluggish but tolerable. I was astounded.
I messed with Vista briefly (quad-core, 6GB RAM) and found performance wanting... pretty damn slow at everything, as in wait 20 seconds for a mouse click to register. WinXP64 and Win7 on same hardware, no problem.
But as I poked around Vista, I noticed that lots of little things behaved or felt like WinME (which I had on an everyday box for two years; perfectly well-mannered once beaten into submission and the broken parts disabled), too much so for coincidence. I concluded that Vista came out of the WinME devteam, and was similarly released in a halfbaked, unfinished condition.
Microsoft is trying to 'innovate' another revolution it missed.
Or just sit someone down with a font editor and reproduce it, like a zillion copycat free fonts do already.
Thanks. I was just looking for a nice font of this general sort. Now if I could find it in monospace, which is what I really need for my application... (Liberation Mono is fairly good but not "strong" enough visually.)
As to TFA, some years ago I noticed that some new Interstate signs had crappy legibility because the font was more tall and narrow than the old font. Lo and behold, finally I know why!
I didn't need any such commands for Mint to brick itself. All I did was attempt to change a video setting using the provided interface, and somehow that toasted GRUB.
(Semi-reproducible, ie. have had it happen twice now. Won't happen again, cuz Mint is history.)
How is health insurance different from auto insurance?
That's your thesis?
Which is the way it should be.
Excute them, and their families and friends and cats and dogs.
Same goes for spammers. Why should a spammer who causes more than a billion dollars in lost productivity NOT be called what he is? A terrorist.
I remember a time when
People running 7 and 8.1 can avoid the updates that add the spying to them, but since it's baked into Win10
Part of the operating system now, like IE?
