Wow. I didn't think you'd actually take the bait and reveal yourself to be a depraved, utterly mindless goostepping fool. It's like handing Trump a microphone, asking him what he thinks of Obama, and then picking your jaw off the floor three minutes and 150 uses of the word n***** later.

Protip: the next time you're asked about your tax dollars supporting boy-fucking and other crimes against humanity, you might try saying something to the effect that, "well, of course I want those people imprisoned in Fort Leavenworth next to Manning."

Look at you wind yourself up and let yourself go. When you decide to discuss things rationally let me know. Or are you like every other lib that has to start name calling and insulting first?

BTW, your behavior points to the latter.

Comment Assholes both of them. (Score -1, Troll) 793

I don't give a fuck if I'm voted down as a troll or not.

Bradley manning gave info to the enemy. PROVEN. Bin Laden used that info. PROVEN.

Obama & the MSM have been hammering on how bad wikileaks was in "stealing the presidential election." Now he commutes the sentence of a traitor who leaked info to wikileaks.

Assuming you believe lie detector results, it sounds like they were just measuring how honest the participants were about how many naughty words they new. And from that perspective it goes without saying that there would be a correlation between being honest and reporting more words.

Also, as regards holding back on the actual use of naughty words (which, BTW, they didn't measure), they need to consider the difference between "dishonesty" and "manners".

Well, I don't think staying on Windows 7 is a losing battle, for reasons I've described in my other comments in this Slashdot discussion. Short version: It works just fine for now and for the near future. I hope Microsoft will change their strategy before the Windows 7 option eventually ceases to be viable, but if they don't, yes, we will look at migrating to some other platform.

Another comment I was writing prompted me to look at how much of the software we use in my small businesses these days is still proprietary native Windows applications, and it's actually a very short list these days. Most of what we run natively on the desktop and literally everything we run on our servers is now freely available and widely portable to different platforms. The rest of what we run is hosted either on those servers or online and accessed via browsers and sometimes also mobile apps. The number of software packages we depend on that are actually Windows-only is trending to zero, and might well reach zero within the useful lifetime of our current Windows 7 systems.

Obvious, but possibly naive. Small businesses in first world economies typically make more money, employ more people, and basically do and contribute more as a group than large businesses. And as the saying goes, every successful large business was once a successful small business. Also, small IT businesses, independent professionals, and "prosumer" geeks are disproportionately influential when it comes to IT decisions. Playing to the huge enterprise customers at the expense of the little guys may be a successful strategy for the short term, but in the longer term, neglecting the little guys will surely come back to haunt them.
