Once you get to task manager and kill it off things progress bit better.
Why in the living name of Fuck is there an [X] button in the upper right hand corner if it doesn't actually exit the application? It just sort of mangles into a state of spyware stasis...from which you can neither resurrect it nor nuke it from orbit.
Well OK, you can nuke it from orbit with the help of the task manager, which I'm sure Micros~1 will disable in in Win11. SysInternals FTW!
Will Microsoft land on Park Lane, or will they land on Chance and get "Do not pass Go...."? Because it's defo monopoly territory.
I'm (still) hoping for, "GO TO JAIL! Go directly to Jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200."
Oh, and BTW, In my versions of Monopoly, its Park Place. What have you Brits done to Monopoly?!?
From the article:
According to Microsoft's documentation, Windows 11 also requires the presence of a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) – version 2.0 – and UEFI Secure Boot enabled.
Owners of more recent PCs might have to delve into their BIOS settings to flip the required switch. Others wanting the Windows 11 experience could be looking at new hardware.
The rest of us will likely be looking at a new operating system.
Even major issues are much more likely to leave a boat without power rather than destroy it entirely, so even if you need to take a week or so to send out a rescue boat, you're still not looking at a complete loss. Delays happen for a variety of reasons anyway, so nothing critically time senstive gets sent by ship.
'Course, if it breaks down in the Suez Canal...
You can decry my (or @werdsmith's) pointing this out as irrelevant all you like, but the fact remains that when you have hundreds or thousands of employees who are used to one thing, being made to switch to another thing that while being 'easier' on the budget is less usable in their daily work than the thing they were made to switch from, then you have a problem when those employees start complaining en masse that their work environment is being made more difficult. [emphasis added]
Yet that didn't seem to hamper Windows 10 uptake any, now did it? Bosses just told the minions to "get over it", and miraculously, they did.
Funny how that works...
Those saying that this is a reason to distrust Linux...need to bear in mind that disruptive influences could infiltrate any organisation. [...] It could happen to Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, etc. etc...
Is it you're assertion that "disruptive" influences haven't already happened to Micros~1? I submit Windows 10 as Exhibit A...err, wait...make that Exhibit V...that Micros~1 is in and of itself a disruptive influence.
But I digress...Back to slamming systemd.
Another critic wailed: "I am truly at a loss for words as to why this seemed like a good idea to your development team."
One should not necessarily blame the devs. Micros~1 is, has been, and will forever be first and foremost a marketing company, with technical expertise being a distant second (third?) on the list. More likely, this was the result of some freshly-minted mid-level Millennial marketing exec who (desparately) wishes to make their mark on the C-suite with a new "branding initiative".
The devs probably just threw up their hands in disgust and said, "Yeah, whatever" (after mumbling something decidedly NSFW under their breath).
So, I took a little trip to the Audacity web site to take a look. (I use Steinberg's Wave Lab myself, but wanted to see what else is out there). First thing I noticed is that their web site uses ssl.google-analytics.com and mc.yandex.ru (both of which are blocked by default on my script blockers).
Seems the virus has already invaded the body...
So now Great Britland has effectively mandated that the entire populace must have a multi-hundred pound (Sterling) device in order to prove you're "safe". One that you, citizen, are on the hook to purchase and maintain.
Nice work, Boris! Aldous would have never envisioned the day where the Proles would have to pay for their own telescreens.
At first, you say:
However much I may disagree with a given opinion, I wouldn't suggest for a moment that it is sophistry contrived to support a predetermined outcome.
Then, roughly 20 words later...
[...] but it's unquestionable that if one accepts the opposing view in that one regard, the dissent is a correct presentation of the logical consequences.
So, the dissent makes sense if you're driving to a predetermined outcome. Nice.
You sure that was only caffeine you imbibed?
