Re: Where are the benchmarks?
If it is IP6X it actually would be quite easy: just work in a pool...

Yes, but not for the auditors, they usually only want data up to 6 years back.
We had to get an ancient backup system going to restore a more than 10 year old Lotus 123 file which could prove that a product someone just had patented was something we had for years. IBM was btw. very helpful providing the Lotus 123 software needed to read that file.
"The omission is an odd one. Microsoft has a Skype client for Linux, so a similar client for Teams should not be beyond the imagination of the Windows giant. Particularly given its much-publicised love for the Linux platform."
That's not odd...
Microsoft has no Skype for business client which is what Teams is supposed to replace.
The technology behind Skype for business is NOT Skype but Lync - only the name has changed.
WiFi speed is effectively limited by your wire speed and as long both 3G/4G/5G and wire is provided by the same companies your wire speed will not reach 5G speeds (because they are more interested in feeding 5G transmitters with x10Gbit than deliver 10Gbit Ethernet to your home (and no WiFi AP supports currently more than 2x1Gbit).
I don't think you understand the concept "work" in this specific situation...
It is not a desktop environment but a very much specialized environment where the PC just run one or two applications and there may be some extra hardware involved.
Upgrading the OS may require millions in new hardware.
No, I do not like the situation - someone should have said "STOP, this will not work, a ship is not a place for a desktop operating systems!"
Actually it is quite easy in a military environment - sadly the rest of the world do not live by military standards.
RN is not alone in this, most navies have the same issue but again this is manageable those are very closed environments.
It would be very nice if hospitals et. al., airplanes, ships and critical infrastructure could be run like that... people (primary politicians) are however stupid so they are not.
We haven't because those Russian, Chinese, NSA hackers didn't want us to know and the corporations providing cloud services are afraid of saying anything just yet (people are still able to move back - in a couple of years we will be megafu***d and locked in the cloud). Wait a couple of years and the bubble will crack - the world as we know it will collapse - the cloud will be taken over - and everyone will say "WTF just happened ??"
...it is easier to get an Mac to boot Linux than it is to get a PC to do the same.
They may have some ideas how they want to people to use their product but that is not different from how your dishwasher manufacturer want you to use their dishwasher.
Most of the anti-apple mob are angry Windblows users who are afraid of losing their "supremacy" of having to reinstall their PC at least once a year.
I am btw. running OpenSuSE on a MacBook Pro... installing Linux on a Lenovo was too time consuming.
Oh one more thing: Windblows still can't manage proper display scaling something OS X and Linux has been doing for over 10 years.
Ads use MY CPU cycles, MY electricity, MY bandwidth to show me useless information on things I do not need or want and the ad networks are spying on me too, harvesting information and tracing my whereabouts.
There is NOTHING unethical in blocking ads, it is actually a right we have - it is the right to use OUR computers as WE like.
If the ads were simple text with small pictures (like an ad in a newspaper) people wouldn't block them but animated ads is like putting a running film into a newspaper. You can save 50% CPU just by blocking some ad servers... and with only ONE web page open, that is actually what I would call UNETHICAL - oh and think what all those useless ads do for the environment, we waste a lot of power on them.
