your isil plan makes no mention of isil. at all. you just make nonsense-noises about things not connected to it.
logic eludes you. way to fail.

or, perhaps he ~is~ the parasitic twin of some [real/other] person.
only those with pro edition will get a free upgrade. important info left out of the announcement to make it sound good when it's not.
this may not be as big a trap as it seems.
only 8/8.1 pro users are eligible for the free upgrade.
"Customers running Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8/8.1 Pro, like small businesses, have an opportunity to upgrade to Windows 10 for free in the first year," said Jim Alkove, head of the Windows enterprise management team."
so nothing for those running home basic, home premium or starter edition o.s.es.
Q. What's the difference between Windows 10 on Mobile devices and the Titanic?
A. The Titanic had paying customers.
actually they go back to the manufacturer and get destroyed/recycled as excess inventory after a certain amount of time.
nokia used to publish the write down figures in their quarterly reports. something i don't think we will see from msft.
way too modest!
msft has had millions of security vulnerabilities.
and linux has definitely had more than one, but really can't compete against the number/volume/seriousness of those for msft's products. (-;

"Free Windows, end-of-XP spree, drops Microsoft revenue by $455M"
Microsoft last week said that revenue generated from sales of Windows licenses to computer and device makers dropped $455 million, or 13%, when compared to the same period a year prior.
The downturn was expected by Microsoft, although the extent of the decline seemed to come as a surprise.

"They knew that consumer [Windows] was going to be tough," said Merv Adrian of Gartner. "It's just very hard to sell an OS these days."
Microsoft blamed the downturn on the consumer side on its decision to give away some Windows licenses and for business, the tough-to-match numbers from 2013, when enterprises scrambled to dump Windows XP, then facing retirement.
Sales revenue from OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) -- the Lenovos, HPs and Dells of the world -- was down 13% both in what Microsoft calls the "Pro" category and the "non-Pro" grouping.
The terms refer to the kind of Windows license, with Pro indicating the OS for business-grade PCs and non-Pro those for consumer PCs and tablets. In Windows 8.1, for instance, the former is Windows 8.1 Pro while the latter is simply Windows 8.1.
Windows OEM licensing was down $455 million from the same period the year before, or about a third of the $1.4 billion total decline for the Devices and Consumer Licensing group, which also includes non-volume sales of Office (consumer purchases of perpetually-licensed Office) and licenses for Windows Phone."
wake up, no-o!
the msft-rix has you!
you are delusional, irrational and oblivious to both history and current events.
hard to beat when it comes to generating laughter. (-;
and by his own hand! unless he's back to typing with his feet again.
he never seems to be able to figure out which end goes up. (-;
and this explains why he leaves all of yours.
they are hysterically funny!
and make you look like a fool. so he leaves them in place.
great explanation, pigeon/jeff/krarner.
the only thing it leaves out is any connection at all between linux, yahoo! running on it and the moderation of posts containing links.
and, since you are on a roll, please just stay there on the ground -- and keep rolling. wonderful entertainment!!!!!
omg, that's funny!
i take it you have never heard of viruses, trojans and malware. those all take advantage of msft software features that allow crooks to access the accounts of users both on the computers they use and in other areas, such as bank accounts, medical records, point of sale transactions, credit and debit card use/access and many, many, many more.
not to mention stuff that doesn't target home users -- like stuxnet. ever hear of that? X-D
if you ever decide to learn about computers you should also hire a consultant to help you secure any systems you use. and even that may not help as there have been literally 10s of thousands of breaches that resulted in "unauthorised access to accounts" even in companies that have massive security budgets and personnel rosters.
not sure why you mention things that msft tracks. sounds like a way to redirect the conversation onto another topic. but since you brought it up --
msft tracks user location in order to push targeted ads to them based on where they are. end user location data was being posted to a public web site and users could not turn it off, only msft could. and their first try failed so they had to implement a second patch.
so is that particular one going to be enough? my guess is that you will simply ignore it and carry on with more uninformed nonsense.
are you going to try to qualify things further in order to take the discussion off-topic?
are you, never mind ... your [broken] record speaks for itself. (-;
msft seems to specialize in "unauthorised access to accounts."
it's a built-in feature in just about everything they produce. (-;
your theory is that the "linux" moderation software removes replies at varying intervals, somewhere between a few seconds and an hour or so?
and how does "linux" create and implement the management and policy decision matrix that determines which posts go and which stay and what goes on the whitelist?
better yet, post another nonsensical and unresponsive message. those are fun too!
oh, did i say extreme intellectuality?
typo on my part. should have been ineffectuality. (-;
