Comment Re:It's all about the development environment (Score 1) 510

yeah, if "it's all over" depends upon something that will never happen. And I wouldn't be so sure one is even under development. All this time and all the Javascript development that has gone on. I don't think there is even one good Javascript development on par with "real" development language's IDEs. And Flash "script" style development environment would be even more specialized. So yeah, unless someone like Google or how about Symantec? steps up and creates something, browser independent, the was is far from over.

I don't think Microsoft has anything to be worried from Linux. The vast majority of users just plain can't use Linux. Linux isn't really growing in user base and what little growth it has is going to peak if it hasn't already unless some drastic changes are made to the operating system to make it easier to use. Don't get me wrong, I'm in favour of Linux FOS just isn't the right model for competing with funded OSes. Apple on the other hand...

Comment Windows uses virtual memory no matter what (Score 1) 613

I've found Windows uses virtual memory no matter how much memory you have available. That's why I max out the memory on my notebook and turn off virtual memory. But Windows has continuously become so much more inneficient that it really seems intentional rather than just lazy which I originally thought was the reason.
