Dealing with the Devil you know
"One thing MS licencing isn't, is simple."... True, even had those in the know giving incorrect information. Though thankfully far easier and audit cheaper than Oracle.

Hardly an Enviromentally friendly car if it goes up producing more toxins than a regular gas guzler car on fire...
(Yes I realise that it's not Eco friendly in the first place as all the "where does the elec come from" and "what happens to used batteries".. blah blah blah..)
I am a bit of a novice when it comes to Linux. I am mainly a Windows user, and have used OSX.
I installed Ubuntu 9 on a laptop we had, and liked it, and upgraded to 10 and used AWN for the menu, then 11.04 and 11.10...
I just don't get GNOME3. It makes no sense. I can't find anything, it runs terribly slow on my laptop - yes it's a few years old, but 10 worked fine. I may give it a few more weeks to see if I get used to it.. but I reckon I am going to downgrade for the better...
So does that mean that the title of the Kaiser Chiefs song should put them all in prison? Didn't they cause all this? They predicted it after all..
Oh rubbish me too for putting that as a title? But I never said which country your honour...
If his intent was to cause a riot, surely he would have kept the comment up there? This is plain simple craziness. Where the hell did common sense go?
"these sweeping generalisations and broad-brush knee jerks are starting to get on my tits"
That comment has made my morning... THANK YOU!!
Can you think of a world, where we don't every have any id (passport, driving license), where we have no paperwork, and then some idiot accidentally deletes the wrong person out of the system, and you no longer exist? Why am I thinking Demolition Man??
End of HDD? Nah. Maybe use a different format, but everthing on the Cloud? You must be having a laugh.
Next they'll need an iPhone obviousily for phone calls and dictation, and iTouch's for secretary's to type up the dictation. Maybe each to have segway's to cut down their carbon footprint between walking too the desk in the office to the meeting room....
...and then a laser... what for? Who knows, but every evil son of a gun wants one in the movies!
Maybe a fountain that spews out liquid gold would be a good idea too?
iPad's for the office? What a frigging joke. Like previousily said you can get a cheap netbook, with touchscreen and spinning screen, and then can at least connect it up with a projector for the mass audience.
Sure if someone want's to hit a specific target it will be harder... but why not just release a virus that just randomly buggers people up? One minute takes number 42 down, then takes out a hospital, someone 300 miles away, fire station, etc... basically do a mass denial of service attack to the UK, US or wherever.
Nothing is impossbile, somethings are just improbable..
I am a car driver
I am a motorcyclist
I am a cyclist
I've done all of the above in London.. and no I haven't knocked off anyone's wing mirrors, juimped lights, killed small animals... but then I may be a miniority.
So it's ok if it doesn't affect you? It's a £1 today, it'll then go up and up just like car parking. Either way it's yet another way to rip road users off. Westminister will then get more Parking Attendents... there'll be more penalties given out both Car and Bike.. more revenue raised.. still less spent on the roads.
Then it will spread to neighbouring councils...
Soon they'll also make cyclists pay for parking. Then make you pay to use council parks...
So maybe a biker should leave the bike at the train station for free, but do you REALLY want more people on your crowded train in the morning? If prices rise to the level of cars, it may make more sense to leave the bike at home and take the car to work, especially in the winter, may as well keep warm. Do you really like the extra congestion?
Pirates - Cos Westminster Council will screw you every which way it can...
