Not trolling, but how's 1080p x264 playback with that setup? I have a Popcorn Hour A100 (old-school) that does it all except DTS audio...
The important bit to note is the ION. If you have a NVidia GPU, you can use the Live or Linux (And at this point, I think the Windows version supports GPU acceleration) versions, and if you enable VDPAU (Or the Windows equivalent), and it will happily accelerate the video. I get full 1080p playback with no dropped frames or stuttering on a Asus AspireRevo that is almost completely silent.
And it would be one way for an administrator to allow people to download software while being reasonably assured they're not going to install malware by accident. I would hope.
Check out AppLocker.
It allows you to vet certain programs and allow them to be installed, including updates and future versions, without granting the user account full rights to install.
Or you can publish MSIs to the network and allow your users to install programs from the "Add Programs" menu.
If MS was really, truly concerned about keeping malware off your PC, there'd be a free AV program installed when you got your PC,
And a complimentary anti-trust case against them to boot.
Pimp my quantum ride?
the students and their parents could be prosecuted if they did not participate in an after-school 'education program.'
I love the fucking hypocrisy around sex in USA. Sure, violence and killing people is all okay, but when it's about natural human function like sex it's all bad and must be hidden.
You don't know what the program is about. Regardless of anyone's feelings on sex, letting semi-nude pictures of yourself get transmitted digitally is a bad idea, as is transmitting them, and these teens might not understand that.
Surprise your boss. Get to work on time.
