over at gemalto lync was the single most application which I couldn't substitute.

Chatting worked with pidgin, but screensharing or voice calls didn't  (the later due to missing encryption support)

There would have been a commercial client, which I was going to test once they supported screen sharing, but the problem was solved by itself. No more "security to be free" for me.

I have the exact same problem.  I can join the audio portion of a conference from my phone but video and screen sharing require a Windoze VM.   Very annoying.

The "leaked" (yeah, right) screen shots of Windoze 9 are here.

No surprises here.  Faced with the prospect of people abandoning the platform, Hitlersoft put the Start Menu back in, in more or less its original form, but with Windoze Phone crap attached to the right side of it.  I guess you can ignore that.

They also seem to have introduced a way to run "Modern/Metro" apps in floating windows that can be dragged around the screen.  Wow, it's almost as if they realized that people want desktops to act like desktops but they aren't willing to let go of your screen touching finger quite yet.

Whatever.  I'll stick with real operating systems.

Well this sucks.   Both of my kids are into Minecraft.  The desktop version bores them but we all play the mobile version together; every running copy automatically becomes a server and you can share it out to everyone on the same network automatically, and presumably run it on the Internet as well (haven't tried it yet).

Now it's been announced that Microsoft is acquiring Mojang, the publisher of Minecraft, and that Notch and all of the other original developers are leaving.  The graphic appearing below displays my feelings on this new development:

I've never tried sharing a session of mobile Minecraft, although I'd love to give it a try.

I get it, that Notch is freaked out about being a head of a community of people when he really just wants to program more games. But... Microsoft... gads...

Everyone just knows Microsoft will fuck this up. Everyone hopes otherwise, but they're a huge business with no sense of maintaining a gaming community whatsoever. They were, possibly, the oddest choice if you care about that community.

But, in the end, we'll see. Microsoft is apparently trying to change their culture. Maybe this is what they need to accomplish that. I dunno. I just don't have any faith in them.

I wish Notch had found a way to just open-source the game and be done with it, but I guess he wanted the money.

I paid $6.99 for Minecraft Pocket Edition. On two different devices/accounts.
I can't imagine Hitlersoft will keep the price that low.

At least PE was developed directly by Mojang. The console editions (Playstation and Hitlerbox 360) were outsourced to third party developers and only *look* like Minecraft. I expect they'll want to change that. The problem is that Minecraft is written in Java. Well, it's a problem for Hitlersoft, but not really a problem for the game itself. But it's probably the reason why the Android port was so easy.

Yeah, they'll screw this up. Big time. It's a shame because it's the first time in decades that I've actually become interested in a game enough to *play* it.

You also wish he would open Minecraft?

I still remember when I purchased 10 licenses and started giving them out. I wanted to spread it specifically because he promised the community he would open the game when he was done with it.

He's clearly done with it. Judging by who he sold it to, he probably just wants it to die at this point. To be fair, few people would consider their own honor and integrity to be worth more than $2.5B...

Any recommendations for backup tools on MS Small Business Servers? The builtin service sucks big time, it does not like the external HD and it flooded the SAN on the NAS.

I need at least one daily copy of the data, incremental. Preferably freeware. I have searched the intarwebz and I did not like what I found. :(

Freeware?

I don't know. I've never investigated freeware backup solutions for Windows.

Otherwise, Symantec has BackupExec, which I've used in the past (admittedly because I was in the company that sold it in those days). It does a very good job.

I guess the folks at h-soft are thinking that Minecraft is going to be the upgrade to Minesweeper.

That moment when you reboot Hitlersoft Windoze, need to get something done quickly, and are presented with the lovely grey screen "Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Spending the next three hours installing update 1 of 2345893582974..."

yes, definitely; had that several times. boot over to winsux just to participate in some lync conference call... and it starts updating until the conf is mostly over.

since then I tried rebooting the box to winsux the day before... and waited the hour.

but... once I removed oracle BTRFS the vm with windows ran fast enough to do the confcalls, so no rebooting anymore.

anyways, glad I don't have these problems anymore.

And another thing !

Real operating systems tell you what they're doing while they boot up.

Windows Phone Server 2012 just shows the stupid 2-D Windows logo. It doesn't even animate it.
