Wow. They really can't win, can they?
That's right. Neither can Charles Manson win.

"The goal is to let users on Linux machines play video and enjoy the same breadth of content and quality of experience enjoyed by users running Silverlight on PCs or even Macs."
Um, who said that we want Silverlight. We don't care about Silverlight. We have Flash and Java. Thanks all the same, but no thanks.
Another reason for Chrome is that Google gets a window into the habits of web surfers which improves their AI and advertising. Microsoft and Apple have their own browsers and this gives them an advantage as they have an eye from the client end. So even if Google get 5% of the browser market it is enough to get valuable information on clients surfers habits and coupled with their other stats and information at the server end, they get a fuller picture of what is going on.
The problem with DVD and probably Blueray is all the nag screens you get and associated video pirate messages. With DivX the movie just plays. This suits me because I play the same movies for my kid and having to hit the next button 10 times at a cost of 1 -2 minutes is a pain. Times that by 50 which is about how many times my kid has watched Finding Nemo and that is a whole hour of my life right there.
DivX or downloads for me.
Say no to nag screens.
"For Ozzie, inventor of the hated Lotus Notes and now driving Microsoft's "software plus services" strategy, Microsoft will surpass the capabilities of Amazon, forcing even those hateful little trolls in the open source community to come to love its online services."
I am one of those trolls. Ha ha, and I will never learn to love a convicted and abusive monopolist, no matter what they do. You have to feel good about those you do business with or collaborate with, that is just common sense. The mere mention of Microsoft makes my blood boil.
I don't like to inflict pain on myself. I will stick with Open Source and Google too.
<quote>Time to deploy demos to divert and confound financial analysts. Ballmer brought on lower-ranking executives to demonstrate changes in Live Search that add capabilities such as scrolling down an endless page of search results, rather than having to click through to a new page of results as you do with Google, </quote>
OH like Google's Picasa.
Wow, Microsoft are imitators, I mean innovators.
ISO appears to be corrupt. Why else would they support a convicted monopolists file formats as a standard. The point of a standard is that all can use it, but Microsoft have a history of extorting large sums of cash to use their api's and barring others from using their file formats.
ODF is a great file format and anyone can use it. Why make Microsoft's impossible file formats a standard?
Maybe ISO is open to cash payments? I wouldn't be surprised. Very suspicious behavior.
I was arrested in Colombia for ttaking photos. I managed tried to defend myself in English to this guard who could only speak spanish. Finally I thought the guard who arrested me let me go, I said "thanks senor", and walked off into the sunset. Later my wife later told me that I misunderstood him and he wasn't letting me go at all. But the guard didn't come after me, so I guess he just wanted to forget about his encounter with a dumb tourist.
Here are the so-called sensitive pics:
The one on the bridge is where I was arrested.
al Qaeda created a company called Google to photograph the world and get away with it. Once they have the photos, they are planning on folding up Google as it will no longer be useful.
The police need to arrest everyone at Google because they are terrorists.
Go the Police and don't forget that half the public are terrorists too, they have cameras in their cellphones.
This is not paranoia, just prevention.
Rackable may have lots of Linux customers.
Maybe Microsoft doesn't want to support them.
Maybe Microsoft doesn't want to be that efficient and instead prefer to use bloated Vista and the extra power and hardware needed to run it.
Hell who cares about Microsoft anyway. They are late to the game and are now a has-been.
>>It's one thing to support open source. It's another thing to demand that anything not open source be banned and boycotted.
It's not that open source is the only option, but that Microsoft a convicted monopolist is playing everyone again as usual. They prey on the IT illiterate and that is why Open Sources are complaining, because they are the literate ones.
