What, when the polyfuses on their motherboard flip and they don't get to use their USB ports for a while? I have yet to have smoke come out of anything I brought home except when I deserved it, putting way too much power into some speakers once.
I ended the conversation there, didn't even try to argue.
Did you at least laugh right in their face?
This doesn't compete with PuTTY, probably: odds are it will be a console-mode ssh binary just like what cygwin users have already but without a dependency on cygwin, and a server just like what cygwin users have already but with NT auth (incl. AD) rather than
No. Cygwin runs everything under one process.

So uh, what's the difference? Looks like all cygwin is missing is proper authentication. AFAIK it maps UIDs to SIDs, but yes, is missing AD support.
I assume it's reading something off the SIM or on the network, or the carriers are intercepting the "is their a new update" query.
Try this: shut down the device, pull the SIM out, turn it on, connect to Wi-Fi, and manually check for updates. Or is it actually storing what it finds through the SIM?
now you can use Windows computers the way they were meant to be used, as dummy linux clients
I've been doing that for so long I've actually given Chameleon money (for Xoftware.) No, wait. Except the last time I actually wanted to do it was years ago, because it's been years since I had any Unix-specific machines. Now it's just PC Unix. I just threw away my last Unix machines, a POWER1 and an Indy R4400SC@200MHz. It wasn't worth dusting them off.
Rsync fails on Windows/Unix interactions due to basic filesystem architecture.
Uh what? I use it all the time between Windows and Unix, Windows and Android... it works fine. If there are any problems, they are abstracted away by the client and/or server and I don't notice them at all.
Basically they need SSH compatibility to manage Linux boxes and they want and they do (Azure) manage Linux boxes.
Almost. They need SSH compatibility to be managed by Linux boxes, yet with proper NT authentication instead of the band-aid which is Cygwin.
Well, when you're typing out Unix commands on an teletype that's 80 characters wide, creating short options first made a lot of sense.
When you're typing, period, creating short options first makes a lot of sense. Powershell is a shell which is apparently not designed to be used by typing. Too bad it has a typing interface.
New, as in everyone who wants this already has this via cygwin. It even installs as a service. Presumably I should ssh in and use powershell, but I've never tried because if I want to do real computing, I do it on a real OS with a real shell.
The reason the US has a nuclear waste issue is that the government won't allow reprocessing.
Yeah, France still has a nuclear waste issue, and they do reprocess.
If you are unwilling to learn about nuclear physics and understand the issues,
No need to apprehend nuclear physics to understand that humans are fallible and corruptible.
Chrome has disabled NPAPI in recent version, Flash and other NPAPI plugins are dead. The internet is going to catch up very quickly.
Triple Play = How to charge people $49.95 a month for low volume "VOICE" service, padding the profit margins. We cut everything but INTERNET. Comcast will be internet only here shortly, or it will die trying to stay the same as it is now.
The days of BROADCAST is over. That is the current model that is dying. The Cable Companies already know this (NetFlix duh), they are just trying to slow down their death.
As speed of the Internet increases, it further eliminates the need for broadcasting anything. It used to be, congestion was at the consumer end (Dialup days), and th back haul could over subscribe. Now, the congestion is at the junction points between Tier 1 and Tier 2 peers. Comcast vs Netflix was just the first of many such collisions.
In the end, you'll have cable or fiber, and pick the content/services you need/want at prices you're willing to pay, delivered exactly when you want.
I'll go one step further. Forget video except as a link to the YouTube source of the transcript. I don't need my screen filled with ugly people trying to be "relevant". I don't need a big part of my browser occupied by a video that I really don't want to watch. I really don't.
