Isn't that a tad... explosive?
While hydrogen on itself is not explosive, hydrogen is very flammable... add the components of a plane to that and... BOOM!

Windows 7 Pro and the even more expensive one get Virtual XP for free.
I use it, is not perfect but anything that cannot run on Windows 7 64 bits because it needs an older 32 bit Windows works on it so far, even Windows 3.1 stuff.
Granted there is the small detail of having to buy extended support for Windows 7....
They literally forced you to use very crappy keyboards for years.
And let's not get me started on Ipod cables and headphones that at first were of good quality. Then Apple decided to make the ones that came with the Ipod crap to force you to buy better ones.
Is not like other companies don't pull abuse like this but sometimes I think most Apple fanboys must like the pain.
Microsoft pulls this shit? No one forgives them. For Apple? It takes stuff like overcharging a monitor stand for even the fanboys to call them out.
I wanna know the main reason non fanboys use Apple products, I am honesty curious since if you just want a work computer a PC with Windows tends to be cheaper and if you want something that needs powerful hardware... Apple doesn't do power computers... do they?
The problem is selling that idea to people used to use something.
Is why a lot of people keep using Microsoft Office when LibreOffice is free and in like half the cases they just need a word processor and a simple spreadsheet program.
Back in the 90s I remember at least a few spreadsheet programs that were both easier to use and cheaper that Microsoft Excel but nooo... they wanted it on Excel. Then they added macros and you basically had to be a programmer to understand the advanced options and that plus the package deal, massive piracy and discounts is how the other programs disappeared.
The flat ones were surprisingly durable if you took care of them, the 3.5 aberrations? They were so faulty that in the last few years I was forced to use them I had to backup the same files in three different floppy disks and do them as Rar compressed files with a recovery file included.
[. It would be nice if we could put a Fedora ISO on an NTFS formatted USB thumb drive and boot-up and install from that, directly.]
NTFS IS FREAKING TERRIBLE FOR PORTABLE STORAGE DEVICES, yes even in Linux.
All my external hard drives are in Fat32 or on Ext2 for a reason and that reason is that it works better that way.
If even Windows 10 Enterprise, on a stable update, borks quite badly using NTFS on an external storage device, even if you threat it like crystal, imagine the borkage on Linux.
I say that as personal experience, just DO NOT use NTFS for an external storage device, okay?
Dude we are in the pandemic era. People no longer want light laptops with long battery time, they want power laptops that can run every heavy program they need to work at home... and to play games at home.
And working from home won't disappeared even after we get a vaccine, at least a third of the office workforce will continue to work from home as it saves companies money.
Authoring tools to create master CDs that later were used to make the mass production copies, ran on Windows and DOS so that's how a CD could get infected by a Windows or DOS virus despite the other systems being different.
The hilarious thing is that F-Prot for DOS was free and worked until Windows 98 SE to detect and erase viruses for Windows and DOS. And there was also Norton Antivirus Scanner that at least let you detect the things and was free to use and that one ran in Windows.
