Americans like it for free but Europeans still prefer to pay for protection.

The problem is, consumer level Protection isn't all that great... and the free ones aren't that far behind the paid ones as far as catching what the consumer level products can catch.

No company offers Enterprise level protection at a reasonable consumer price, yet. If you want to go with cloud based... zscaler has a minimum of $700 a year for a small business. If you want to go with a Next gen firewall with full subscriptios that has https inspection... you're talking $1200-$1500 for the device, then $300+ a year for subscription.

So, free AV + Norton DNS or OpenDNS configured on the router level is the best bang for the buck for a home user. Of course, other little things like running no-script in the browser, keeping the OS, flash, reader, and java patched (if you use it), helps.

If I could pick up zscaler for $100 a year... I'd be on it in a heartbeat. Complete protection for all of my devices and completely sanitized traffic, and no expensive perimeter device to maintain/upgrade, since it's cloud based.

If they did use strongarm tactics, not even DX12 could get me to upgrade from Windows 7. Windows 9 better be "da shiz", or I'll skip that one too. DX10 didn't make me upgrade to Vista either... so it would be a real shallow attempt, if they try that shit again.

Never liked any of the Serious Sam stuff. I know they were trying spoof old school shooters like Doom, but it just didn't appeal to me... I thought it was just plain dumb, and I'd rather play something like a Painkiller series game for that style of gameplay. Granted, I only played the first game, but I was completely turned off.

That said... after 14 years, it's about frickin' time they tried something else.

Microsoft now fighting the Windows 8.x war on two fronts -- can it win either battle?

Nothing to do with the article, but Apparently they can't win. My coworker found a rant on Microsoft Answer's site that is pretty funny. The guy doing the rant is an idiot... but it is still funny as hell.

Event 10, WMI and Error 0x80041003

The rant comes after the posted answer.

I especially liked this part:
Who is the imbecile that decided to put Metro on a friggin SERVER. Have you completely lost your mind? SERVER....this is a SERVER.....not a social media machine. Nor will it ever be. Most of my servers never go on the internet.

Not sure whom I despise more... Randy or George.

They both need a severe ass beating, IMO... and I don't normally wish violence upon Devs.

Cool news.

As for the internet hate, just ignore it. If your backers were fine with it, who the fuck cares about everyone else?

It wasn't fine with me.
I still think he squandered the cash for what was released, and scope creep got way out of control. The man can't budget for shit.

Oh Well.

I'll get to playing it when I'm done with my backlog from the last Black Friday sales.

Actually, since the NDA lifted, I'm seeing more good things posted.

The two major gripes seems to be boring starting areas (Game opens up after level 10) and melee combat not "connecting". If they can fix these two things in the next 2 months.. they should have a good start.... then they can address the rest of the gripes as they go.

The RVR actually looks really fun, and I'm not that into PVP.

The Siege stuff looks awesome:

Uh... according to many that have been in the beta, there are no cool downs for combat... only stamina / magica management.

I'm not sure why stuff on the hotbar was dimming... but it looked quick enough to be that you can't execute another hotkey while one is going off.

Microsoft belatedly attempts to use friends and family to get rid of Windows XP

If old machine has only 512 MB of RAM... Lubuntu
Otherwise Mint - Cinnamon.

Windows 7 is an option if they want to pay for it.

Cause it's certainly not out of experience with the console -- the variety of games sure have been keeping our Wii U on constantly, and there's certainly no 'looking like ass' or 'running poorly' as hundreds of online comparisons can easily prove.

The Wii U's hardware is supposedly weaker than a PS3 or an Xbox 360, according to developers.

Do you seriously think that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs won't be compromised?

Sure... it wasn't a bash on kiddie games... it was a bash (I guess) on that particular console's technical specifications being grossly insufficient for something like Watch Dogs.

I'm sure the Wii U version will look like (and maybe even play like) ass compared to the other versions.

Not even sure why they are bothering with the Wii U. It might be great for kiddie games like Mario, but it just doesn't have the horsepower to run modern AAA 3D shooters.

MMORPG.COM is the least critical that I've found.

I wouldn't play this game without a post launch free trial. (I'm not in the beta, and don't want to be).

You all need to quit saying Bethesda. TESO is NOT being made by Bethesda.

1. Zenimax is the Parent Company.

2. Elder Scrolls is made by Bethesda Game Studios.

3. Publishing arm of the company is called Bethesda Softworks.

4. TESO is being created by Zenimaz Online Studios ( Completely different folks)

5. Bethesda Game Stuios will continue to make Single player Elder Scrolls games and Fallout games.

6. As mentioned before, the only thing borrowed from the single player studio was some writers, and probably lore consulting.
