I'm used to it now. Especially with people who have good analytical skills. They really pay attention to details and I can get quite lazy with my speech/writing.
I've stopped using nbcnews.com because they went to this big box look. Then my primary source for local news in my home town switched around and now not only is it impossible to find stuff or read much information, almost all articles go to an autoplay video about the story. I have to wait for it to load and then pause it before I can start reading the article.
I'm pretty much down to the bbc site for news.
His main idea was that the OS has no business deleting any data generated by the application, that data is mine and uninstalling should only remove the program itself and let me take care of the rest.
and a problem always comes up if you are with them long enough.
This is good to know. I removed all mine because I kept looking over at them.
I don't know how it works for people but slashboxes are a big part of what has let me use slashdot as my hub. I can look over and see all the latest from ars, boing boing, etc - without having to go there except for the stuff that I find interesting. They are a big part of the reason that I come here multiple times a day rather than just when I want to post a JE. The front page is also mildly interesting but I can keep tabs on that easily from Facebook.
And this is why I do so poorly in quizup. I'm number 5 in Hungary for English grammar but well, that's just not saying a whole lot.
I come at this from a completely different viewpoint, having only recently dipped my toes into Linux - for me, a package manager is a relatively new concept. The nearest I've come to it previously has been with Apple's App Store, both for iOS and now OSX - plenty of choice, sometimes too much choice.
As far as manually installing apps goes, it usually boils down to double-clicking on the DMG file to mount it, then either running the installation package or dragging the app file to your Applications folder.
In theory, uninstalling apps is as simple as dragging the app file to the Trash. I say 'in theory' because apps do leave behind some detritus formed by using them - thankfully not to the same degree as Windows, but it is there. For suites of apps like Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Cloud, there tends to be a lot more extra stuff deposited onto your system besides the apps themselves.
Sadly, updates do tend to be on a per-app basis, with the exception of those acquired through the App Store, which handles the update process.
Picked up my new 13" Retina Macbook Pro ( not the same as a plane Macbook Pro - these guys are so good at marketing.) I've been using it for two weeks. I'm learning.
My favorite surprise was when I opened up the terminal app and started trying out commands. Everything was working so I went to see what environment I was in and saw that it was bash. This made me very happy.
I think on the gui end it is o.k. I prefer but I'm getting use to the way OS X wants me to d
It was mildly humorous until I read "reject the report and blame" then I did burst out laughing. You just can't make this stuff up.
No offense to you or your coworker, but is there any reason to accept your theory just on your say so?
(And your sig is accurate, btw)
Yes, I can come up with a thousand free market answers. And yes, that pretty much answers your question.
Would you buy a vehicle from any company whatsoever if you knew that parts were difficult to acquire? A manufacturer can play a game with parts availability only if they don't plan to stay in business.
Maybe we should go back to renting our phones from ATT as well.
