Sites like this are often infiltrated by CIA to monitor peoples thoughts and track users.
I used to think that. Yes VB6 was very simple to use, but VB.net is alot more powerful. It's also much easier to depoly your applications. I remember in VB6 having to write a whole bunch of code to automatically update my application. VB2010 is fine.
No, it's just slow and bloated now and takes fro every to start in comparison to chrome
While I don't doubt the intentions of Bill and others who want to try and people alive, sadly this is natures way of making sure the world doesn't get overcrowded. It's a sad fact but people NEED to die.
Nonsense. Microsoft were the ones who brought desktop computing into the mainstream. Their "status quo" gave users an interface that they were famililar and comfortable with. Only when they started changing things around did it get bad. What are the alternatives? A company like Apple that is even more evil? Amateur Linux source applications which are lacking in quality? Let's face it LibreOffice is poorly coded, badly designed and alot slower than Microsoft Office. Most Linux apps have poor interfaces and very little in the way of quality assurance.
Investing. He'll probably make it back.
Actually many people who install "Classic Shell" on Windows 8 prefer it to Windows 7 because Windows 8 is alot faster, more stable and has quicker boot times. People who complain about Metro are just too dumb to install classic shell.
Retard isn't a very nice word. I hope you never have children with disabilities.
The reason why alot of people have money is that they don't waste it on crap like overrated Apple hardware.
Linux developers are notoriously terrible at designing user interfaces. For example: 1. The Unity lens 2. GIMP 3. Open/LibreOffice And those are the "big" applications. When you start looking at the smaller applications its gets even worse. Alot of half-assed, ugly looking applications. Then there is hardware support, which they like to blame on the hardware vendors, but if you look at the poor quality user interfaces you can see that the vendors are only part of the problem. I'm not saying all Linux developers are lazy or poor at design, but that's what comes across when I use Linux applications. It's missing quality control and developers have no incentive to make their programs look nice.
If people sideload my app they wont receive automatic updates. I guess I could put an update downloader into the app though. I regularly update my apps.
I don't care if it bends. Does it blend? That is the question.
As an android developer I do the same. Google Play is very convenient for developers. Most of my apps seem to magically appear on other marketplaces anyway after they go on Play. I've heard it was because some of the broadcom components of the PI are closed source.
Why did they use closed hardware? I think my next board is going to be a riotboard.
