You ever had a raid? I have.. and you don't want to have a 4TB hdd in a raid fail... rebuild takes forever and during that time more HDD's in that raid WILL fail.

I currently have a SAN that consists of 144TB of raw storage (6 6 bay NASes of 4TB drives), so it's funny that you mentioned that. Rebuilding can take a bit but it's not the end of the world provided you use the correct array structure. You won't even see a performance hit during normal usage if you've planned your deployment with even the most rudimentary of caution.

You should never see other drives die during an array build unless you've got a systemic problem, a shit controller or your array choice was very poorly thought out. I use RAID60 with ZFS and have had ZERO additional drives fail during a rebuild.

If there is a sequel, will it be called "Mass Space"?

I don't see your gaming habit as very common though.

It really isn't and I wouldn't say it is. But, since I don't live anyone else's digital life but my own, all I really have to judge by is how products offered to me serve my needs...or don't.

For me, it's getting to the point where gaming is getting less interesting and my need for a Windows partition, let alone a Windows exclusive installation, is rapidly dwindling. For daily use, there are plenty of Linux distros that do everything I need. Libre for office work, VLC is cross platform, as is Amarok (which I have come to prefer over Rhythmbox, Banshee or even the venerable old Winamp). I have Thunderbird, Seamonkey or a host of other email clients, if I wanted to use something other than a web interface.

Almost all of the games I enjoy playing repeatedly are "older" titles, like Silent Hunter IV, Medieval II, Homeworld 1 and 2, and they work beautifully under WINE. Even new titles are suddenly getting Linux ports like Metro 2033 Redux and Borderlands, as well as others.

Provided that momentum continues, I won't even need Windows for gaming.

I just find it hard to justify a Windows OS license purchase in today's world.

Is everyone really ignoring my post about how they did this with Office and no one got conned into doing anything they didn't want to do, and that at a certain number of computers it's actually much cheaper to look at it as a service, but it's really aimed just at businesses?


No. I already mentioned that in my block about an enterprise subscription version.

FYI, though, Psygnosis just published those insanely hard games, but they published plenty of easy stuff too. It was Reflections that actually MADE them.

Except for Brattacas. God damn, that game took me MONTHS to beat!

Maybe he can release an alpha product as a full price game and then say, 9 months later, "Haha, fuck you. We're dropping all support for the game"...again.

There's always the very capable Linux to go to if the new MS model doesn't suit your ethics or philosophy. Linux Mint, for example, is a very good stepping stone for long time Windows users to use to get the hang of a new OS.

I can understand Microsoft's plans regarding the enterprise market. That makes loads of sense.

What I don't understand is why Microsoft doesn't just flatout give away the home OS. There is plenty of market delineation between the two that this would be possible.

For example, you can have the subscription based enterprise version that is better integrated with SCCM,OoB management, better underpinnings for VDIs, even tighter integration with Azure, Exchange and AD and other pro-business features that would solely be reserved for the enterprise edition while stripping out Media Player and other historically non-business related tasks.

On the consumer side, you can have the current general purpose OS that has the ability to tie in to OneDrive, an Office 365 sub, media extensions and that would be pretty much all you'd need for a home OS. Sure, you could include BitLocker in both versions if you wanted.

How many home users actually call MS for support in their very limited "Free" window? 5%? 10%? For the most part, support for the home user falls either on the OEMs or someone in the family or a friend so it's not like MS' support costs would suddenly skyrocket if they did give away the home OS.

It's 2014.

WHY IN THE FUCK ARE THERE STILL PEOPLE WHO EXIST THAT CANNOT TELL THE FUCKING DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "YOUR" AND "YOU'RE"?! Holy fucking shit. It's not hard.

Or that "You" is a word whilst "u" is a vowel.

Too busy jerking it to how awesome they are after telling someone "QQ NOOB" I imagine.

Regarding the romance sub-game:

Look, I get this is an allegorical pre-Christian dominated western Europe. However, it is just that...pre-Christian. What's with the narrow, near puritanical ideals of "romance"?

For example, the whole romance sub-game absolutely insists on monogamy (that I have thus far experienced and saw in DA1 and DA2) yet there's Orlais, which is clearly based around 18th century enlightened France. As such, why can't I have a three-way with Vivienne and Justine? ESPECIALLY since it's really damn clear that Justine has character traits from De Sade's Justine character! Those two would absolutely be down with that since they're both nobility (as compared to the common schlubs in the rest of the game).

The whole mechanism seems forced and designed by someone who is incredibly sexually inexperienced or a 14 year old. It reeks of Harlequin romance novels and overwrought emotional Hallmark spew.

I think it could be argued that, as a single title, Skyrim is one of the most, if not the most, successful RPGs of all time. It's funny how people respond when you don't make the game an on-rails narrative, create a fascinating and massively open world and fill it with locations and lore that make you, the gamer, want to go back time and again. Also, making it incredibly easy to mod was a big plus as well.

Wait...THAT'S the game that wanted to require 8GB of RAM and recommended 16? For THAT???? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

It looks no better than Far Cry 3, the music is a straight up, Russian quality ripoff of the Mission Impossible score and the characters/storyline are Generic Evil Eastern European Gang Guy BUT WITH ZOMBIES AND MIRROR'S EDGE! OMGWTFBBQ! THIS IS TEH GREATUST GAME EVAR!!!!

The only thing this is pushing is stupid people to cough up cash for yet another Techland crapfest.

FTFY. Pretty much all the Western RPGs we love were knockoffs, re-imaginings or straight out retellings of Tolkein, Howard, Burroughs, Miller, Scalzi, Heinlein, Asimov or Haldeman.
