I see zero evidence of the Mac turning into the iPad. A lot of people say that, but I use a Mac daily.

We'll see if that remains true after moving to their own processors.

Didn't they already say they were going to make the ARM version of Mac OS work with iOS/iPadOS apps "out of the box" on day one?  Microsoft failed at this so it's pretty obvious that Apple will succeed.  It's kind of what they do.

It wouldn't surprise me, although I can't imagine why you'd really want to.
They can't even get app developers to optimize for the large screen iPad Pro......

I have not made any more attempts at installing dual boot. I am using Windows, something I have not used since XP.  I knew a lot about Windows 2000 pro, the company I worked for at the time field machines were Win2KPro machines.

Apparently after an update Windows 10 will tell you it needs to reboot and will offer you the option to 'reboot now' or wait until non-active hours.  If you reboot manually the update is not performed.

Wouldn't it be great if Bill Gates died in a plane crash? I hope that happens soon.

What would change if he did die?  (In a plane or by natural causes)

It would make ME extremely happy, which would have cascading butterfly-wings effects across the entire multiverse.

Until the following week when you realize nothing changed because he died.

I suppose if ENOUGH people like him die, things would change.

Quit harshing my mellow. I'm not looking for change. I just want him dead.
I want his family dead. I want his house burned to the ground. I want to go there in the middle of the night and piss on his ashes.

I kind of want these guys to live through the collapse, so I can chain them to the front of my Wasteland rig as barely living hood ornaments... 


Or maybe a mule-team of ex-silicon valley billionaires pulling my wagons for me.

Well he's wrong about Linux, of course :)

I like how he turned into Adam Sandler for the last couple of seconds of the video.

I dunno. I have a love/hate relationship with Linux - it isn't a healthy partnership.

I started using Linux as my primary desktop when it made me want to murder its creators less than the alternatives. A couple years ago, I went back to Win 7 as my primary while keeping Linux around as a secondary.  Everything continues to become a homogenous paste of dreck and goop. No Haiku, no Plan 9, no Urbit will save us.

I'm not a super fan of any of them, lately. OS X is a good OS crippled by a terrible company. Windows is in the middle of an extended existential crisis. Linux is just insanely difficult to troubleshoot.  Lots of moving pieces scattered all over the place there.

At this point all three major platforms are more or less the same as a desktop.
And since we do almost everything through a web browser now, there isn't much of a difference. Microsoft lost the battle for monopoly of the server world, thankfully, and now they don't even care because they're making more far more money as a cloud provider than as an OS vendor. ESR suggested [ http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=8764 ] that it would even be plausible for Microsoft to gradually phase out Windows as a distinct operating system and as a cost center so they can focus more resources on their cloud services.

tl;dr : none of this matters anymore.

I argued with Jack Wallen years ago that by the time that there was a "Year of the Desktop" for Linux, Linux would be indistinguishable from Windows in the kind of issues and baggage it carried with it. I think I was pretty much accurate about that. The more Ubuntu Linux has gotten, the less skilled the user base has become, and the more likely you are to run into malware, unexplained crashes, memory leaks, bloatware - the whole nine yards. 

OS X and Windows both have productivity features in their GUI that I miss when I'm on Gnome. OS X used to have the edge - but modern Windows has so many great productivity features - snapping, auto-fitting. I'm sure there are 3rd party alternatives for both OS X and Linux to do those things - but the thing about having features like that bundled into the OS is you learn it once, and it works at every machine you go to. The Mac mail client is excellent, though. I prefer setting up and reading mail on an OS X system to any other platform.

I wouldn't mind doing everything through a browser if browsers and the Web hadn't gone down the same path of homogenous AIDS-infested feces.
