Year of the Linux Desktop
And this is all the same reason why the year of the Linux desktop has never really happened, too much choice!

I have recently swapped to Obsidian, it uses markdown language for notes and stores them locally so you don't need a Internet connect to access. But I sync mine through one drive to be available on all my devices. Also the files are all stored in pure text so can still be accessed if obsidian disappears in the future. Awesome product.
If I remember correctly they had a "Manual" that was about 2-3inches thick, but it was completely blank. I think I used it as a notebook.
We also had a WAN accelerator installed, which compressed files between two Canada and UK. The problem was that the files (exported SQL database transactions if I remember correctly) that we were sending were encrypted and therefore uncompressible, the problem was this was 80-90% of the traffic we were sending, so completely useless.
At which point will a national body (anywhere in the world) say no to an oracle based system due to past performances.
I also wonder where oracle appear in the garner magic quadrant, they must be getting pretty low to the bottom left square by now, or is it only in the ones that they don't pay for?
Is there much use for GDPR if companies like TalkTalk and Equifiax have already released everyone's information? Can companies state that future breaches dont matter as much as the information is already in the public domain?
Mines the one with the list of everyone's name and addresses in the pocket
Couple of rumors that I have heard....
Some interesting stock movements pre hack news release, so maybe a short sell money grab.
Their check if you have been compromised webpage gives different results for the same data.
Something tells me that this may not be the way to handle a security breach!
Maybe a simpler solution,
If you have limited disk space, but are happy to spend on hardware, then the solutions is to have a box under the desk running a headless Linux configuration and then replace the keyboard, monitor and mouse with a laptop with windows running on it, and make sure that the laptop is good enough to run your games. If desk space is at too much of a premium move the laptop to somewhere else in the house with more space?
always go with as simple solution as possible, as if there is a problem with hardware you could loose both systems!
"I personally wouldn't want an IT Admin to have full device wipe capabilities over my own personal device."
This could be a useful feature, if you lost your phone (including a memory card) that may have embarrassing photos, or personal documents on it. You can then ask IT to wipe the device as a precaution. This can also be a function of an Exchange server with Andoid/iphones utilising activesync to connect to them via OWA.
