Of course not!
BTW, I recently bought a Sony BluRay player, and it says "powered by Java". Not a word about Linux! I thought the wretched Linux system is kind of preferred for all the primitive shet, but apparently not, eh?
LOL! The Linux fecktards seem to be upset about this post. But, face it, feckers. Without a client, there's no use for servers.
Windows single-handedly revolutionized the computer industry. The explosive growth of PCs is what paved the way for internet's global popularity, and made internet cost-effective. If Linux weren't there, BSD would have worked just fine for firewalls and shet. (And Unix and Windows would have run the servers just fine.)
Thus, we find that Linux is quite unnecessary. *snicker*
"According to StatCounter, Chromebook web usage was just 0.17% in July 2014. For an always-online device supposedly destroying PCs, that’s an incredibly niche number. By comparison, Windows RT -- widely declared as dead on arrival -- registered 0.10% over the same time period."
What? After all this hype, Chromebooks have only a little more web usage share than Windows RT? Are we talking about the same Windows RT that the Linux fecktards consider as 'dead'? So, if Windows RT is dead, Chromebooks are nearly dead, then?
God, what a joke etc!
" I see you haven't educated yourself."
I see you haven't been able to shake off your brainwashing yet. You bums have done the easy part so far, and it took you 22+ years, for some reason! ROFL!
That be ridiculous. The technical and legal departments of a large number of organizations have inspected Microsoft's claims and seen the value in contributing to Microsoft's bank account.
It's preposterous to claim that a bunch of Linux beggar boys know more than all of those organizations. This is simply FUD from the Linux fecktards (who seem to think there's no IP worth protecting anywhere, and they can copy whatever they can see).
Who gets $2b a year (soon to become $8b a year, oh my!) from something other than that something's rightful owner?
Just accept the inevitable. Microsoft owns it. Google is the care taker.
I feel you, peredurabefrog.
You have all those open sores developers working day and night to make their software successful, while the uneducated bum herequeer goes fecking everything up, trying to act like he represents.
You are quite correct that Linux has seen little adoption in the real world, especially on the desktop (where it actually matters - just ask Torvalds). But there are many good reasons for it. There's a good, long discussion on slashdot right now with some insightful commentary. And the Linux Hater's blog also covered this when it was active.
The main problem with Linux is that it is not a platform. Nothing stays (relatively) constant, and nobody can depend on it. The end result is that nobody does depend on it.
So, people like herequeer are not the main reason for Linux sucking the big one. But, of course, if you want to take herequeer to the side and shoot him, you know, just to teach him a lesson or something, you will get no objection from me.
Except Android is not a guise of Linux.
Linux kernel is an insignificant commodity piece well under Android, much like BSD is, under OS/X. Android is an entirely different OS with its own APIs, which are developed and maintained (in a sane fashion) by Google. If you morons had anything to do with those, Android would have been a dud just like Linux.
As for Linux's use on servers, Torvalds already admitted server operating systems are one-trick ponies. A primitive OS such as Linux is adequate for server use, but even there, Windows has it beat handily. Per IDC, Windows server accounts for almost twice as much hardware revenue as Linux. (God, what a joke Linux is!)
Desktop is indeed the place where the most competent OS shines. Windows is that OS. Linux managed to get a ridiculous 1% usage share after 22+ years. (God, what a pathetic OS Linux is! etc)
As they say in India, *snicker*
God, it burns me to retype a perfectly worded message all because the dumb Yahoos ate it.
I urge the Linux fecktards on this board to visit tmrepository/com (replace the slash with dot). It was created as an offshoot of the Linux Hater's blog. As a collection of some of the more idiotic memes in the Linux land, it promises to be an educational experience for the Linux bums.
Herequeer seems to be taking heat from this peers for his highly idiotic behavior on this board and elsewhere. The above site will be a good diversion for the bum.
P.S. The Utah Engineer has nothing whatever to do with the above site (as far as I know), so proceed without fear, Linux fecktards.
Why the Linux fecktards feel the need to spread misinformation about everything is unclear.
"Opera said Microsoft was essentially outsourcing web browser development for all phones that do not use its Windows operating system."
As they say in India, capiche?
I like this move by Microsoft. If Opera is already doing a bang up job as a browser with data usage economies, why not use that rather than try to reinvent the wheel?
I'm also all for Microsoft putting Android to good use where possible. After all, it's almost their property at this point. Of course, Nadella wants to encourage app development for Windows, so he is not going this route.
SJVN came out with another "article". This time, Torvalds is wailing about the Linux desktop. "I still want the Linux desktop", whines the great Finn.
SJVN claims that Linux "runs everything", conveniently equating Android with Linux. As we all know, the Linux kernel is only an insignificant little piece under Android. Linux is a Unix-like OS, whereas Android is an entirely different OS with its own APIs. No matter however many "articles" SJVN publishes, and no matter what he and his fellow beggar boys tell one another, Android is not Linux. Saying it is would be against common sense.
No wonder the web usage figures are so horrendous for Android. How many of the Android tablets are really still in use?
I'd say the last few years have been one big training session for the world - training in Android's futility. The world is primed for Windows tablets, and here comes Surface Pro 3.
More cluelessness from Linux feckers:
"even if there really isn't anything suitable [for integrated mail/contacts/calendar], paying someone to write software, or tweak existing software would be far cheaper than paying for MS licenses, and the hardware upgrades the monster would require."
It's exactly this kind of stupidity that landed Munich in the mess it's in today. All this custom programming bit Munich in the back side.
Another gem of a comment:
"There is some economy and security in Linux. Just like there are some advantages in not buying a new car in favor of riding a bike. Or in selling a house and living in a shack."
Here's a nice comment - a little over the top, but fundamentally correct:
"Of course the govt workers are SUFFERING. They cannot install the internet or browse the web or point and click or cut and paste or multitask or do any of the things that are so insanely DIFFICULT if not outright IMPOSSIBLE to do with that loser Linux Operating Systems (O/S). No INNOVATION there except for the STOLEN technology."
Stolen technology! ROFL!
Bear in mind that Windows 8 has a lot bigger desktop usage share than the wretched Linux.
Windows 8 can be used in multiple modes, and people that give it a little time *love* it. The Linux fecktards should now feel sorry for themselves. *snicker*
It is quite telling, that.
When Google's main man for Android development goes out of his way to make a public statement that Android is not Linux, you can see how much Google wants to distance itself from the wretched Linux.
Even though Linux kernel is only an insignificant and commodity part well underneath Android, I'm sure Google wishes now that it didn't use the Linux kernel.
