That sounds equally horrible, tbh.
ISP's are not inherently evil and need to be stopped or punished. If they are ganged up upon, they will have a tougher time - and that would probably translate to higher prices for the customers.
Microsoft has NEVER been first with a new service or product or platform - yet they seem to do pretty good in many ventures. Never count them out. I actually have a feeling Windows Phone 7 might be something...
Except that Oblivion was a disaster from a design and gameplay perspective. Also, I never found the story to be anything interesting, merely a backdrop, and there was zero immersion in the dialogs. I actually think that a large percentage of the ones who liked that game did it for the graphics.
I'm sure they gave it to Obama so that he couldn't back down on his peace-making line. To make sure he'd follow through.
Ofcourse the prize doesn't go to the most peaceful guy in the world, he'd probably be too high to accept the price. It goes anywhere the comittee feel it will do most good.
Exactly. When are people going to realize that the slow uptake of Linux or other free software has nothing to do with quailty, and everything, absolutely everything, to do with marketing? No year will ever be the 'year of Linux'.
