Nailed it in one.
More like in three. And they are not the only issues. And all of them are addressed. Go read Wikipedia or something.
To me the the options are quite simple: you either shell out some cash and there's a small chance of you being reanimated, or you don't and you're gone.
Well that's your fault anyway, you shoulda saved her off Antiga Prime zerg swarms the other day...

I guess things like your comment would show up only under the latter search.
Apparently, I'm using more modern version of Windows, than you've got. It's NT4 and has the feature you've mentioned. Check it out.
True, but not as transparent as I'd like it. I'm in, once they get GPU virtualization performance as the CPU one... or just move all SIMD logic into CPU and standardize instruction set.
It's getting there: as earlier command prompt OS and UI shell earlier were (more) separated, right now hypervisor and OS are individual products. Wait 5 years...
For now you can use UAC/sudo, non-root user accounts or Sandboxie and its alternatives.
Sounds suspiciously Apple-like. iPhone apps do this very thing.
No shit Sherlock: sandboxing, emulation, memory and hardware virtualization, CPU ring modes are all Apple inventions from 1970s and Windows 7 you're browsing from right now has its code base from Apple Lisa of that era.
Like everyone else I hate the security issues of Flash and think that for simple things like web forms, pull-down menus and video players designers should switch to HTML5. However there's no good alternative for web games.
Though there's clearly some progress, I have yet to see playable games in HTML5. All we have right now are few conceptual proofs. Google's pacman doesn't count: it lags and I'm pretty sure took 20 times more time to develop than its Flash alternative.
Interesting idea. I'm more for employers covering individual employee's student loan rather than public fund approach. Students from your local techie school should be more affordable to employer than some high flying business/law/med grads.
Some employers right now are doing it, but government can be more encouraging here. Instead of paying off interest for active students, even ones who wont get a related job.
Am I the only one who thinks the more slashdotters are on iPads, the better? It's way easier to troll with real keyboard, like I'm doing right now.
