Microsoft reorg places Surface evangelist Panos Panay as boss of Windows too – report

SouthernLogic

There goes productivity again

Just like in the days of Windows 8, brace for more adware and useless OS's coming from MS.

We need a windows alternative badly!

Maybe its Linux and Wine, but that on a users desktop? It still has a ways to go to be ready for the office especially in troubleshooting app errors.

Come to Five Guys, where the software is as fresh as the burgers... or maybe not

Re: I'm sure they can afford support

For a cheeseburger and reg fries its $10 US. About 25% more than the bean burgers from McDonalds or Burger King, but its real meat. Not to mention the amt of fries you get is huge and taste fantastic. So when I feel like a cardiac event I go get me one.

Serious UPTIME

That XP box has been running flawlessly for decades. the ix's have nothing on the older MS tech, the newer bunch of wares want to reboot every 6 months, sometimes even more often.

Space Force is go, go, go! Because we have a child as President of the United States

Space Force

Is that envy I hear in your voice? It wasnt until earlier this week that we even knew the UK had an astronaut, and guess what? She lives with aliens. We will create the space force... To infinity and beyond!

Re: 'if you’re doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result'

By that logic there is no bad idea and the crooks in washington would spend the USA into oblivion faster than they are doing now.

Not everything needs or should have a government solution!

Re: "Putin's cleptocracy and cronyism succeeded where communism failed"

Soviet Communism "Succeed"? For whom? No one but the top soviets were living any dreams. No freedom of speech lest you become like the 10s of millions in a mass grave.. Not what I call success.

Scary thing is with todays tech China is proving that the "thought police" can become real.

ReactOS 'a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel', claims Microsoft kernel engineer

SouthernLogic

Re: Precedents already set?

As the article stated ReactOS was started decades before M$ released the research kernel. I do not think M$ would win this one and time better spent fixing their own desktop fiasco.

SouthernLogic

M$ is abandoning the desktop

M$ is abandoning the desktop for the cloud. Why does it care? Is the legal team bored and looking for something to do? Maybe M$ needs another class action or to be split up.

Bill Gates declined offer to serve as Donald Trump's science advisor

SouthernLogic

He might need extended salary, and a salary manager to help him access it.

SouthernLogic

Bill is looking very old. Why even bother with Gov at this stage of his life.

Nervous Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg passes Turing Test in Congress

So the Zuck passed the turing test. It seems that congress did not pass that same test.

Hotel California Class Agreement!! That was awesome and very accurate with the agreements of M$, AWS, and Google.

Internet giants removing 70 per cent of reported hate speech, crows European Commission

SouthernLogic

Hate Speech VS Freedom of Speech

It seems that the people of the EU have had yet another freedom taken away from them, or said more appropriately decided for them. It seems the EU has taken it upon themselves to decide for everyone what is acceptable speech and what is not.

Who asked them to do that? The best and freest countries allow opinions from all points of view not just the ones that the government agrees with.

How quickly Europeans have forgotten the lessons of the last century.

Re: Yes, and?

We have a border? with mexico? where? Is it north or south of Phoenix?

SouthernLogic

Re: "The American worker has never had a stronger advocate than President Trump,"

Any idiot can give away other peoples tax money. It takes a real leader to put things in place so the free giveaways are not needed anymore.

SouthernLogic

Smart Move

Most developed countries have a system like this, even Mexico has a system like this and I would not call them a developed country.

Many countries in Europe did as well until Merkel became your leader and put uneducated muslims at the front of the line.

Re: I'm sure..

What a hater. This admin has done many things that have helped the citizens of the USA. You need to broaden your news horizons.

CMD.EXE gets first makeover in 20 years in new Windows 10 build

SouthernLogic

Slowly turning up the heat

Microsoft wants to get rid of CMD. As the first step in that direction they are changing the CMD color scheme to match its successor powershell.

Then end of cmd and the reign of powershell just takes another forced update.

Are you ready?

Or will you "bash" the whole idea?

He did the bank a service and it only cost them 100000. If Hillary Clinton would have found out about the hack the bank would be out billions or more.

Stick to business

These idiots should stick to their business. It is obvious that they are taking the intellectually easy route and buying into the consensus. That is just not how science is done. Have you ever heard of the consensus of gravity, or the consensus of relativity? No there are proofs that must stand up to peer review and be repeatable. Man caused global warming has non of this. An intellectually honest person needs to look at all of this, do their homework, and not be swayed by public opinion.

It is sad that any government is in the marriage business anyway. There is no need for it.

It's a question worth asking: Why is the FCC boss being such a jerk?

SouthernLogic

Bigger Government is never the answer

If your goal is a more free internet as a conduit of ideas you do not want more government agencies taking control of want has been a free resource without them. That is something the socialists do not understand, less government = more freedom for the citizens.

Minnesota, Illinois rebel over America's ISP privacy massacre, mull fresh info protections

SouthernLogic

Always growing government

Minnesota and Illinois have never missed a chance to step on individual freedoms and grow their state government any chance they can get. The duplicate protections Trump got rid of were already included in laws by the FTC. That is not good enough for these two Marxist states, they want more control over people that live in their state and the companies that operate there. Can we expect any more from two states that advertise the generous welfare benefits each has, in each others state. With the goal to get more residents dependent on the government? There is a reason why companies are leaving this area.

Re: @Ian Michael Gumby

ACA was a democrat only program. Hated by all who had employer healthcare as their premiums went up 1.5 to 2.5 times more than previously for less useful coverage.

SouthernLogic

Protect your DNA

The only way to protect your DNA is not to give it to any employer that asks for it. Work 1099 for these low class vultures if you have to.

SouthernLogic

Employer health coverage was a great way for employers to attract and retain talent. Now with this ACA abortion there is no options since the goal of the ACA was to force out private insurance so all that was left was the government. Go back to the days of Employer sponsored healthcare with competition and watch premiums drop back to the $500/month for a family instead if the 1500+/month now.

Microsoft nicks one more Apple idea: An ad-supported OS

Re: My solution

Excellent. As a life long MS developer, I did the same thing. Cannot stand the decisions MS has made since Bill left and the os is degenerating into crap ware run by the marketing department.

NASA swerves serious cash cuts – but Earth climate probes, asteroid snatcher face axe

SouthernLogic

NASA back to space

Too much money was wasted on redundant climate change studies. Nasa can focus on what it was created to do and that is space exploration. This is good news for real science and not so much for the worshipers of man caused global warming.

Frustrated by reboot-happy Windows 10? Creators Update hopes to take away the pain

SouthernLogic

Dysfunctional Micro$oft

This is one of the reasons I left M$ os's and went to linux. I am a life long windows user and have not agreed with the OS moves since windows 7. I had 2 VMs runnung on my Win 10 box when M$ decided to reboot, these VMs did not come back, corrupted much processing data lost. This combined with M$ efforts into Linux made me jump ship. Why run Linux on windows, just get the real thing so thats what i did. Linux Mint since the 1st of the year it just works, and no more M$ dysfunctional thinking for me.

Happy 2nd birthday, Windows 8 and Surface: Anatomy of a disaster

Re: Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory...

Yet that is what Apple does. So as Microsoft tries to remake itself more like Apple should ignoring and eliminating current functionality in windows 7 for the tiles of windows 8 surprised anyone?

SHOW ME THE MONEY! Ballmer on Amazon: 'They're not a real biz, they make NO cash'

SouthernLogic

Missed the point

Unlike Microsoft that Balmer was well on his way to ruining. Amazon has been brilliant in their use of cash. They have been able to generate billions, yet managed to keep any profit off the books. Taxes the pay are nil. Try that Microsoft it is a very delicate balance to achieve and Amazon has become quite expert at it.
