IMO, the best environment for a developer is one that doesn't treat them like a criminal who requires everything to be locked down. Further to that, as every developer is different, their environment is also different. Don't lock developers into one way of doing things for you'll make one developer happy and productive, and the rest will struggle and wonder why they have to deal with crap.
Give them a laptop, give them admin rights, tell them that they administer it themselves. Provide the software they request, and the services to function as a developer. If you need to lock stuff down, lock it down at the server.
Exactly, it is no big deal yet it is making front page news. I'm sure there are much more important things going on in the world, yet this major news company thinks the number of web sites that Trump's IT department has registered is important. Perhaps they should look into who owns obamasucks.com or obamabinladen.net.
This is nothing more than the privately owned media attempting to persuade the opinions of the people of the USA to oppose their elected leader.
It appears that women are no longer allowed to choose the career they want, but rather the career where there are less women.

The attack works only on Mac versions of Word (attempts to execute on Windows or Pages, Mac-based productivity software similar to Word, failed).
So the solution is to avoid Microsoft products (whether they're a target because they are vulnerable, or just because their popular isn't important). I also know there will be a lot of people in the "I need this for work because Pages isn't good enough" crowd, I say fair enough, but for everyone else, I'm sure it is a suitable replacement. Then there is always the Libre Office route.
Nah, that was the feature in the 7.
Economists can certainly disappoint you. One said that the economy would turn up by the last quarter. Well, I'm down to mine and it hasn't. -- Robert Orben
