You don't read about the ones that work because it's kind of a boring headline: "Computer system works properly; nobody complains"
You usually read about success stories in advertisements: "$our_service helped $client take its service online and save $big_bucks. [See How]" If you block ads, you don't see them.
And that their drag persona and their day-job/legal identity are two spheres that many people want to keep separate?
Not everyone uses the legal identity on the day job, especially in entertainment. Consider Caryn Johnson, whose day job identity is Whoopi Goldberg. Or Paul Levesque, who goes by Hunter Hearst Helmsley professionally (or Triple H for short). Or Stefani Germanotta, who took the name Lady Gaga from a Queen song, possibly to escape No Doubt-related jokes. On the other hand, RuPaul Charles's drag name is just that: RuPaul.
Or, just join the rest of us in 2014, get an SSD and don't worry about it.
Windows itself takes the majority of the 32 GB SSD that comes with a Windows 8.1 tablet such as a Transformer Book, Aspire Switch, or older Surface Pro. I imagine that most people don't want to have to manually shuffle data between such a small internal SSD and an external HDD.
Your server isn't getting games installed on it, which put all kinds of settings in the registry, then removed later when the game is old and tired, leaving behind cruft (including DRM bullsit) in the registry.
You'd be surprised at how many games have the same digital restrictions management BS in the game's dedicated server app that they have on the client.
and everything will be iOS/Android
Good luck running Visual Studio or Xcode on one of those. But I will grant that Android has AIDE, which might sub for Eclipse in a pinch.
and you can say good buy to.
your email app from being able to see any office files.
When you drag from the file manager or Office to your e-mail program, the operating system would make a read-only view of the file in the e-mail program's space.
no more flash , java , quicktime and more on the web.
Three words: good fcuking riddance.
adobe apps can't work with each other
Having been published under the same private key (that of Adobe Systems) would let them run in the same sandbox, if the model you envision is anything like the model of Android.
no more visual pinball working with pinmame (at least both are open source and can have both join to one app)
They could join through more structured data sharing mechanisms, such as local sockets set up by firing an intent.
IDE / codeing apps may be come hard to do.
Console gamers and iOS fans would say "good riddance". But they could work the same way AIDE does on Android.
No more NV or ATI driver apps
Again, having been published under the same private key (that of NVIDIA or AMD) would let them run in the same sandbox.
games can't have mods or map editors.
Console gamers and iOS fans would say "good riddance", as I described in another article, because modding helps cheating. But a mod could be installable through the same share mechanism I mentioned above.
Sprint most certainly will activate a phone not purchased from them, as long as it's a CDMA phone they support
I was under the impression that Sprint supports only the exact makes and models that it sells. If I bought a CDMA2000 phone without carrier branding, do you think Sprint would just sell me a CSIM to plug in?
