Microsoft poised to take Web server crown from Apache


The web was built...

..to be open! Never let a closed company gain control over it or forever be locked down or out of its beauty!

Torvalds hits 'Go' button for Linux 3.15



..the Linux kernel is light years ahead of the NT kernel

Everyone can and should learn to code? RUBBISH, says Torvalds


Top, TOP....

..man. He is absolutely right not everybody should code and nowhere in computer history has everyone ever coded. As for his rant on patents...spot on mate absolutely spot on.

In the same breath there are many, many people who should not be using computers in general today but hey the Anti Virus companies wont like me saying that! Seems we are living in a world where computers are used too much by people that just have no knowledge or the brains to use them, we should all thank Microsoft for that I guess

Redmond is patching Windows 8 but NOT Windows 7, say security bods

Office, IE and Windows in line for critical fixes from Redmond


Why is it...

GNU pacthes BEFORE it is in the media yet Microsoft merrily plod away and wait until the last minute...

Microsoft employee, "We need to get these pacthes out ASAP"

Microsoft manager, "Noooo we cant disrupt our antiquated patch model"

Microsoft employee, "But, but its so 10 years ago this model"

Microsoft manager, "Look, our high management are so antiquated they dont want to change"

Microsoft employee, "Why dont they want to change?"

Microsoft manager, "Look do as we say or you'll be on your arse and we'll replace you with cheap labor from the far east"

Microsoft Employee, "Thats against my rights as an American citizen!"

Microsoft manager, "hahahaha you have no right as a windows user/designer, we sold those rights to the NSA years ago"

Microsoft employee, "Fuck that, America is as bad a Chine or Russia, I'm off"

China puts Windows 8 on TV, screams: 'SECURITY, GET IT OUT OF HERE!'


China speaks..

..what we already knew. Microsoft are to security what chocolate is to fire guards

Could a 'Zunewatch' be Microsoft's next hardware foray?


utter bollocks

Ifmicrosoft were relatively open they would open source stuff that was in use at the time. Look up the open source stuff apple uses in their devices as per the about page on an iphone. Android is much more similar to apple as regards open than Microsoft ever will be


Thing is...

neither me or any of my mates wear a watch anymore. That's so pre 1990's

Watch: Kids slam Apple as 'BORING, the whole thing is BORING'
