When writers use words like that, do they understand what they mean in mathematical terms? I have my doubts.
I'd rather get a Pentax K-1 for half the price. Full frame, 36MP, image quality way up there, superior in some cases (particularly for static scenes using Pixel Shift), in-body stabilisation (doesn't need new lenses). Video facilities not as good, though: the K-1 doesn't do 4K but does do Full HD @ 60fps.
It doesn't do everything, but what it does, it does very well. Besides, why get what everyone else gets? Canon and Nikon are the Toyota and Nissan of camera companies. Boring.
What part of "experiment" was unclear? You might think you know what's going to happen, based on your jaundiced, deterministic model of human nature, but in a world of network effects and unintended consequences, we don't actually know.
One caveat I do have, personally, is that people should not get extra money just for having children. We don't want to encourage procreation for the sake of money. The world is overpopulated world, people should not hve children unless they can cover the cost.
I'm expecting to have to support it, so I went the Insider route on a tablet PC I have that didn't work for me with Windows 8. Happy enough with the results. I haven't yet found a program that doesn't work. I even got a Windows Phone (Lumia 640) a year ago, because I was bored of Android. That's running W10 too, and I haven't regretted it. (The "no apps" whining is largely bogus: half or more of the apps people complain about Windows Phone not having are basically websites in app form: just use the mobile website instead.)
I've supported Windows Server systems for years, and long wondered when someone was going to do an Internet-based Single Sign-On (SSO) service like a Windows Domain. That's basically what M$ did, though understandably feature-limited. No "roaming profiles": too bandwidth-intensive, and it might not be necessary in a "cloud" world.
I consider Microsoft to be on "probation", how they behave will determine whether I stick with Windows. From a career point of view, I might even go for W10 certification, just to be ahead of the curve - it wouldn't be a major pain to do, in my opinion. If they screw it up, I can still get work done on Linux. I'm not so "invested" in Windows that I would get upset either way.
Ireland is the same - I recently purchased a SIM to use in a cheap phone I had lying around, neither required any ID or registration at all. So I have a "burner" already, now what shall I do with it
Besides, plants and animals don't get their fuel from sources that were formed deep underground over millions of year.
I'm playing with graphics stuff at the moment, and so I want a language that makes graphics easy. There are dozens of languages that can happily puke text stuff out on the console, but which make you reinvent the wheel if you want to throw some shapes. There's even a web-based system, for it, OpenProcessing.
I remember trying ti buy a train ticket at the Charles de Gaulle airport station after flying in, in 2005. The queues were horrendous, and then one of ticket machines crashed, and all the people in queue swore and walked away. Except for me, since I recognised that the machine was running OS/2 Warp. By having the patience to wait a couple of minutes for it to reboot, I effectively jumped the queue. It took only three tries to get the machine to accept my credit card
The acquisition might have been a problem financially, but it brought a lot of good people in to HP, including many DEC veterans from Compaq's takeover of them. In the past I've seen HP staffers confuse bad corporate policy with bad people or bad technology.
HP's Server business was a joke before they acquired the Proliant line, and their Storage business model was to resell Hitachi. If HP is an Enterprise player at all today, it;s thanks to Compaq (and, by extension, DEC).

Drew Carey's Mr. Wick recently left his Late Late show, where he replaced a certain Mr. Kilborn, so he's available. Could work
