Comment Not a Microsoft Issue (Score 4, Insightful) 231

Funny how the summary and the article both start by saying...

Microsoft describes Visual Studio Code as a source code editor that's "optimized for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications.

But then the article goes on to say...

The underlying issue is with Chromium, which is a part of the Electron Shell (Visual Studio Code and others like Atom and Slack utilize this shell in their apps)"

and then...

Google Chrome product manager Paul Irish, posting to a thread on Hacker News, said, "Chrome is doing the full rendering lifecycle (style, paint, layers) every 16ms when it should be only doing that work at a 500ms interval. I'm confident that the engineers working on Chrome's style components can sort this out, but it'll take a little bit of work."

... Some highlights of the 7.1 release are...
-Initial DRM/KMS support for NVIDIA graphics cards...
All of the code is under non-restrictive licenses, and may be used without paying royalties to anyone.

That NVIDIA bit doesn't sound non-restrictive.

Comment How friends find me: (Score 1) 456

People I care about know how to contact me. People I don't care about may not. I'm fine with that.

Case in point.. I have a POTS line at home that keep around for the very occasional fax I need to send. When my "home" phone number rings, most of the time I don't bother answering it. If it's anyone I care about, they'll ring my cell.

Comment Re:Google envy (Score 1) 353

... I've seen popups that urge people to use Edge over Chrome of Firefox on Windows 10 machines of other people.

I wish I had a dime for every goddamned popup I've had to dismiss nagging me to install Chrome, both on my Windows machines and my iPhone. It seems every time you hit a Google site with a user agent other than Chrome you get nagged.
