Thanks but no thanks for the FUD. In the off chance you are a retard and not a troll, please let me explain. It takes considerable time and effort to validate an OS for a piece of hardware. More than two months in fact. Asus has to offer support for these netbooks, so they cannot put an OS on it that has not been thoroughly tested on the hardware. When they started this task, 10.10 was the latest and greatest. Strangely enough, they decided not to start all over in the middle of the process simply because a new release came out. Also, it's pretty ridiculous to call 10.10 "obsolete". Non LTS Ubuntu releases go EoL after 18 months, so 10.10 will not be obsolete for another year.
Umm, there's definitely WiFi, no one in their right mind would release a tablet without it. There's however no WiFi only version, they all have a 3G antenna.
Did you play Civ IV? There absolutely was no "one true path" in that game. Particularly with all the expansions and on the hardest difficulty, you absolutely had to play to your particular civs strength, and trying to get different victory conditions with each of the different civs was always a challenge. On top of that, playing the same civ with a different leader could be a very different experience.
What were you banking on no one reading your provided link? It says nothing about bankruptcy, the "uniform treatment" you mention is in reference to Imposts, Excises and Duties. The closest it gets to bankruptcy is the mention of debts, but its referring to debts the federal government owes.
Having spent more time than I'd care to think about digging through those backup DVDs for drivers, they generally only support one model, occasionally two or three. The reason there are so many drivers on the disc is because a given model usually has dozens of different configuration options, eg 4 or 5 different graphics cards, 3 or 4 different NICs, etc. However, each disc is usually locked to a single model, and does some sort of check that prevents it from running on any other model even if it has all the necessary drivers.
I've never been standing on line at a grocery store and had someone tap me on the shoulder and then scream FAGGOT and show me a picture of an overextended asshole when I turn around. You might want to think about shopping somewhere else.
No, he's saying that out of the 16 final ideas, all them already have governments and charitable organizations dedicating years and hundreds of millions of dollars trying to do the same thing. $10 mil won't do shit to remove the worlds landmines or improve education quality in Africa.
Umm, no. Halo was made by Bungie, which was prior to Halo primarily a Mac developer. They started making Halo for the Mac, but then signed with Microsoft who made it an XBox launch title and an exclusive. It was then ported to PC and Mac two years later, in 2003.
Please tell me what in my comment could conceivably be considered "exploding". I'm just sick and tired of people bringing up patents, trademarks and copyrights on every single goddamn thread on slashdot these days, all with little to no understanding of what any of them are.
It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
