Microsoft fears XP could cause Indian BANKOCALYPSE


Re: Barclays

Dont worry Barclays have all that sorted, going to Linux soon



Dont worry India or anyone else

Usual Microsoft FUD. Thats what you get when blackmailed into an OS

New Internet Explorer chief is man behind Windows Phone reboot


Dont let Microsoft dominate it leads to

a stagnated market. Let Microsoft dominate again and tech will stagnate again. It was only because other browsers (thanks to the EU) got their act together and showed what a bug ridden fest IE truly is. Do NOT let Microsoft dominate again it will knock the tech sector back a decade again. There's been more innovation in the last 10 years than the last 25 no thanks to Microsoft (thanks again to the EU)

XBOX One SHOT DEAD by Redmond following delivery blunder



People stuck in a walled proprietary mass of BS!

I guess this system will be completely useless at Microsofts whim. Talk about Lemmings

Yet ANOTHER IE 0-day hole found: Malware-flingers already using it for drive-by badness


Come on man stop being...

so blinded just search windows 7/8 and defrag the two just go hand in hand, NTFS is just plain bloat


Sure about that?

NT based system

Control Panel - Administrative tools - Component Services - Computers - My Computer - DCOM Config

lo and behold auto defrag check set to on as default


Comparison of OS kernels...


Frightening how 90% of desktop computers run a kernel so under secured and completely adrift of great functions.

the supported file system/security is of a particular hilarity


LMFAO since window 95 microsoft has scheduled a defrag of the system as default. Problem is the pathetically bloated os relies on NTFS which as such a neanderthal approach to file access it is criminal!

As long as Microshaft stick with NTFS Windows will always need a defrag whether scheduled or not. Problem is a scheduled defrag bogs down the system every time it is run and hilariously it is recommened not to use the system while it is running. Now Microsoft havent changed the kernel or NTFS in years so quite how you bloat such BS is beyond any sane human being

FAT based file systems save each file directly following each other. So if you later edit / add to this file, the added portion needs to be saved somewhere else. This will create a fragment (or more than one). A new file is saved starting from the 1st blank spot, even if that blank spot is too small to contain the entire file.

NTFS is a bit better in theory, it allows some free space around each file. Then if it notices that the file will become fragmented, it "attempts" to save the entire file in a new location. The caveat to this is "efficiency": if it would not take too much time to save the entire file over again it will be done, otherwise just create a new fragment. Just how it determines "too much time" is up for grabs ... and like most M$ ideas also a secret!

Ext3/4 also generates blank spaces "around" each file. Where it differs significantly from NTFS is that it'll only fragment when it's impossible to keep the file as one single fragment ... that (usually) only happens when the disk becomes too full.

You coward are a complete and utter fool and a lemming to the corporate empire. Most secure browser? Was that a report sponsored by Microsoft pray tell. Get a life and start thinking for yourself Lemming

Please tell why Microsofts kernel is so less secure then linux's kernel even after 20 years of constant patching?

Microsoft windows..2871630 patches ever and still crap


Source forthis complete and utter BS please

Play Elite, Pitfall right now: Web TIME PORTAL opens to vintage games, apps


Todays games companies are very litigious taoday...

simply because they cant match the game play anymore. Today..nice graphics with games that have zero replayability. Yesterdays games...naff graphics (unless you were around at the time to appreciate how advanced they were) but replayability factor 10!
