I expressed no opinion. I replied with a solution to the commentor's issue. Some of us really are just here to help, and use computers every day.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
If you're on a non-tablet (and thus have a keyboard) you can kill any metro app with alt-f4.
In windows 10 you click the x on the top right to exit it. They learned.
In windows 8.1 you swipe from the top, hold for 1 second, and then drag the app to the bottom of the screen. It's silly and convoluted but less convoluted than your method.
You've just described the Australian NBN in a nutshell (before the current government started fucking with it).
The government runs GPON FTTP to every house in populated Australia (there's other plans for remote areas). Those FTTP lines wind up in at ~30 POPs around the country. Any ISP can go into any POP and provide access to users (so you can do regional, or you can do the whole country if you choose). The ISP pays a ultility fee for using the fibre back to the NBN, and the consumer pays a single bill to their ISP without worrying about whose DSLAM they connect to etc etc etc like in the "old" world.
Comparison against placebo is the gold standard for medical research. Why is it unfair to do the same comparison that modern medicine is put to?
Windows 8 had a LOT of improvements for corporate customers. DISM based deployments for a start, as well as huge group policy improvements.
I'm guessing you're referring to the start screen though, as if that's the only change?
Office 365 isn't just the online component, it also gives you the "thick" version of office.
An interesting thought as an alternative to your point #3 is to make your BASE OS native (so that you can play games/etc with native power), but any UNSIGNED applications run through App-V...
It's no extra work for an IT department that isn't staffed by idiots.
Enterprise versions of windows talk to an internal key server, are managed via SCCM, and are monitored by SCOM. Changes are pushed out by group policy. There is no touching "each copy of windows" with very few exceptions.
The internal activation server is simply a compliance reporting server so that the organisation knows how many copies of windows they are ACTUALLY using, so that they don't pay for too many (or too few) EA licenses.
That doesn't make what you said any less incorrect.
Incorrect. Many android apps have arm binaries.
Many do not, to be fair, but most games do at the very least.
It increases gain on the amplifier, which uses more power.
Listening costs power, and listening "harder" costs more power.
Honest question, I haven't tried, but do breakpoints work when you're running on the device itself?
(Eg does it have a remote deploy/debug over USB mode?)
He was likely doing CPU based mining. That would be expensive and inefficient compared to ASIC or even GPU mining.
Because in the US text messages are expensive for end users.
Here in Australia it doesn't make sense because any plan more than $20 a month has basically unlimited texts.
