With the release of Vienna Beta, how promising are you finding it? Whilst marketing has been focussing on it's multi-touch support, are you personally interested in this or are you simply more interested in the promised better OS with full compatability with all existing software and hardware? Are you just eager to discover the new Windows shell? Have you purchased Vista and are vexed by the release of Seven not knowing whether to stick with Vista or upgrade?
Pointless. It's just a beefed-up Vista rehash that doesn't offer anything new to the market. Practical computing went out the window years ago, and "innovative" new operating systems are just proving the validity of Wirth's Law with excessive bloat and eye-candy.
Pic related. If you want practical computing, then stick with Unix derivatives. (not that OS X shit, either)
cool picture but win7 is actually 100x better than vista. when it comes to an environment that isn't a server then windows is just dandy. i agree that macos is shit though.

yeah i saw this. pretty interesting stuff. in the coming years there will be tons of new worlds found.
the earth itself would take about 2 years to find using this method.
I just met Megan McArthur (STS-125) who repaired and upgraded the Hubble, along with the pilot Greg Johnson. I love how I look like my brain just melted.
that's awesome. they look like pretty cool people too.
yeah they absolutely were. I got flustered and asked what the moon looked like and CPT Johnson explained that you're not actually much closer, but with the atmosphere out of the way you can see a little more detail. Oh and Megan McArthur admitted to puking in zero-g, lol!
>>648 heh, imagine puking in your helmet

What do you think about EULAs?
they make a nice pattern; if you disagree it always stops or exits or does some shit that wasnt what you spent time and effort trying to achieve (ie you say no to licence u fail).after learning this simple fact you will always always skip reading that shit and click yes (absolutley ignore and disrespect any condition of use attached).Not only that but often you will find that even should you have been visited by the devil the night b4 and are looking 4 some really boring shit to make u fall asleep, reading an eula will make u wish u had that devil back, u see if the precondition of me using this software is that i pay your retail XXX dollar price without knowing you have more demands still to come and that i have no option but to agree to your demands (not that u will tell me them plainly) then ill just click yes with my fingers crossed and not really give a shit about ur stupid licence which u also make me pay 4.
tldr: what is an eula? and werent they made obsolete by their own misuse? therefore fully worthless shit imo.
