The .NET CLR is also inconsistent between Windows platforms (e.g. Framework 4.0 on XP does not exhibit identical behavior to Framework 4.0 on Windows 7; this is without Framework 4.5 on the Windows 7 system, which would only muddle the comparison). The only place I can recall encountering this was with WPF's visual tree where on a couple occasions I've had to rearrange XAML in order for it to not cause XP to crash when loading it.

There's nothing wrong with Nintendo's pricing. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is worth every bit its price which is $49.99 MSRP (and it's not been the first or even second first party title they've used a lower MSRP on). I'd have gladly paid $59.99 for DKCTF after having now played it; so much better than expected (especially because I never did get into Donkey Kong Country Returns; will have to revisit that). Comparing the HD remake of Wind Waker to the HD ports of other titles is disingenious; have you bothered to actually compare them? Have you bothered to see that there were also improvements made to the game both to fix issues players had with the original as well as integrating some of the Wii U's features?

The problem Nintendo has is marketing as far as I can tell. Their games are as good as ever, and their hardware is better than ever. The problem is tools that read a book by its cover, and then share their insight with the world.

I'm reviewing and getting comfortable with slashcode right now. I'm looking for volunteers to help with setup and running the site. If the site becomes profitable, I intend to hire from the pool of volunteers. If you've ever wanted to participate in a site like Slashdot, here's your chance! I'm particularly in need of people who can:
  • Set up and manage a high-traffic site (servers, load-balancers, data sites, &c)
  • Edit story submissions

+ - Fuck beta 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The beta is bad. It's so bad. The comments are reduced in screen width about 50%. Subject lines are deemphasized, scores are minimized, etc.

The discussions are the reason to come to Slashdot, and the beta trivializes them entirely. It looks like the comment section on a generic news site.

The comments now look like an afterthought, whereas they used to be the primary focus of the site."
