This bodes ill for Windows PC's a few years hence. Remember the experience of universities switching from Windows to Mac's over a time comparable to the time it takes a matriculating freshman class to graduate. Those who have used Macs in school are not happy to be told they must use Windows on the job after they graduate. Hence the BYOD movement. The same will happen with Chromebooks, no doubt.
Only 95% ? It used to be 100%. But I'm very sure your number is fictitious, as always.
Liberty ships a war-time measure, authorized by Congress, no doubt -- after nearly a decade of futile futzing around by FDR which didn't end the Great Depression.
In general, the President's job is to do what the Congress tells him to do. His policies are a minor vernier on that.
As if anything any President ever does has anything whatever to do with how the economy performs LOL
It would be just one more Clintonism. From 1992 to 2000, she was the acting President, while Bill was busy chasing skirts. Now perhaps it's Bill's turn to act as President.
Should just wear traditional cap and gown. What's so hard about that? If he wants to wear kente cloth, he has the rest of his life in which to do that. If he wants to wear it at graduation, he could graduate from an African high school.
In other words, you can't find any grounds on which to disagree with me.
But in fact, the most widely used OS is Android, a version of Linux.
LOL loser, drunk, moron and idiot, you give yourself too much credit. You're a mindless chatbot.
That Microsoft found it necessary to do something like that says something about the intelligence of the average user of Microsoft products.
The problem of patent trolls has become so pervasive that one hears about it even on news programs for the general public. Perhaps a solution is in the offing.
Exactly. MMGW has become a religion which it is dangerous to question, much like the geocentric world model which Galileo ran afoul of centuries ago.
To continue -- A software business is therefore inherently self-limiting. There is a right degree of complexity, beyond which adding more just makes it harder to use. Microsoft reached that level decades ago with office "productivity" software, but can't afford to stop making it worse.
Microsoft has a problem -- it can't sell you a sack of potatoes just like the sack of potatoes it sold you last week, it has to sell you something new and different. That's the nature of information, which is basically what software is. And software is the business Microsoft is in.
One item on my own to-do list is to invent a utility that is designed to invent answers to questions of the form "How do I [do so-and-so]?" That presupposes an answer to a very general class of questions, so it may not be trivial.
This of course speaks against the possibility that Azure will save Microsoft's bacon. But this is an ongoing story, much yet to tell.
That is one of the biggest flaws in Microsoft software, and it has been for around a quarter of a century. About that long ago, it merited a feature article in Science Magazine.
Microsoft created the infamous Ribbon Interface as a misguided attempt to deal with the problem. It actually made the problem far worse, and that necessitated a massive fix to compensate for the new problems introduced by the Ribbon Interface.
There may actually be a fix that does not involve a total re-do of MS Office, but Microsoft under Ballmer was not capable of inventing it. Possibly Microsoft under Nadella can do better.
