Comment Re:enterprise versions / downgrade rights are stil (Score 1) 275

You can still get windows 7 installs through manufacturers. They sell you an OEM license for windows 10 pro which includes downgrade rights and then slap a windows 7/8 image on the computer and ship it out.

You can go on the DELL website right now and find windows 7 business laptops. In fact, the default selection on the operating system IS windows 7. Example:

DELL 7470 - Operating system:
( ) Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit, English, French, Spanish [subtract $20.00]
(*) Windows 7 Professional English, French, Spanish 64bit (Includes Windows 10 Pro License) [Included in Price]

Submission + - BBC: Britain Votes To Leave The EU (

An anonymous reader writes: The UK has voted by 52% to 48% to leave the European Union after 43 years in a historic referendum, a BBC forecast suggests. London and Scotland voted strongly to stay in the EU but the remain vote has been undermined by poor results in the north of England. Voters in Wales and the English shires have backed Brexit in large numbers. The referendum turnout was 71.8% — with more than 30 million people voting — the highest turnout since 1992. London has voted to stay in the EU by around 60% to 40%. However, no other region of England has voted in favor of remaining. Britain would be the first country to leave the EU since its formation — but a leave vote will not immediately mean Britain ceases to be a member of the 28-nation bloc. That process could take a minimum of two years, with Leave campaigners suggesting during the referendum campaign that it should not be completed until 2020 — the date of the next scheduled general election. The prime minister will have to decide when to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would give the UK two years to negotiate its withdrawal. Once Article 50 has been triggered a country can not rejoin without the consent of all member states.

What are things that occured during my lifetime now being called "historical"? I'm not that old dammit!

Above comment is historical. As is this one by the time you read it. Don't you get it man?! We're MAKING HISTORY RIGHT NOW. WE ARE GODS. People will look back on this in 20 years in amazement on how we stuck it to the man and freed the internets from tyranny of government!

It's kinda funny how literally shitting on each other is the German national pastime, and yet only the NSA knows who exactly is shitting on whom.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

I don't think you've been to that part of the internet yet.

Subscription television has always confused me. I thought the idea was that if you subscribed to a service, you could avoid advertisements that subsidized the free services. Yet for TV you pay for the privilege of watching a network's advertisements. I gave up watching TV over a decade ago, so my eyeballs aren't monetizing anything.

Is there a financial reason behind this, or do they just want to double-dip for more cash?
