Comment Too costly (Score 0) 152

I am not trolling, I do not understand the target market for this costly laptop.
1. Developers would rather have lots of RAM and disk space, they can have those systems with better CPU for far less than what this thing costs
2. Obviously not for gamers, the system does not have powerful GPU
3. Regular users now are moving away from laptop.

Obama and Duncan sends their children to schools that refuse to associate with the policies that these guys says good for kids.

Submission + - Microsoft to Support OpenSSH in PowerShell (

CSHARP123 writes: Third time is a charm. Microsoft after 2 failed attempts of OpenSSH support in Windows, this time has decided to add OpenSSH support in PowerShell. Microsoft, which has been integrating Linux into its Azure cloud and server offerings knows that its customers want support for OpenSSH.
Angel Calvo, Microsoft's PowerShell Team Group Software Engineering Manager, explained, "A popular request the PowerShell team has received is to use Secure Shell protocol and Shell session (aka SSH) to inter-operate between Windows and Linux — both Linux connecting to and managing Windows via SSH and, vice versa, Windows connecting to and managing Linux via SSH. Thus, the combination of PowerShell and SSH will deliver a robust and secure solution to automate and to remotely manage Linux and Windows systems."

"The promotion will leave Ive with more time to travel around Apple's vast retail empire and bring his touch to the company's stores around the globe, while leading the design of Apple's new campus which has capacity for 13,000 Apple employees."

He might have been a disaster as a manager. Now they want to replace him.
