Comment In other words, no useful improvements (Score 3, Insightful) 249

I am sick and tired of modern OS's focusing on adding 8 tons of crap thats not useful to 99% of the users, and not working on better I/O, networking, etc.

Between Windows 10, and this, it sure seems like each new version just gets more and more bullshit stuffed into it, but no real improvements otherwise.

I may of linked to the wrong study, apologies in advance. I do know (and in the past, have read) that the DOJ did do a survey that showed that defensive firearm usage is much higher then previously thought. Wikipedia has a good summary of this.

"I'm amazed how many people have the delusion that they are going to defend themselves with a gun despite the clear evidence that it almost never actually happens. "

Clear evidence? Hate to say it, but even the Department of Justice under Clinton (no friend of lawful gun owners) says there are several million defensive uses of firearms per year.

Also check the studies by Kleck out of FSU.

don't think for one single fucking second that your slimy piece of shit malware infested crappy ad server or the network it resides on has any right to pass so much as a single bit past my firewall.

Don't like it? Choke on a dick and die.

BTW: I block ad's on my phone too, so don't think mobile devices will save you either.
