Not it doesn't actually run everything Windows 7 runs.. some old games do no longer work

Yes and I can't fathom why they'd do that considering the entire reason for Windows' success is that it can run all the legacy software, except that Vista/7/8 each introduced too many compatibility problems and didn't focus on running legacy software as well as they could have. Amiright?

Now MS has all incompatible versions of Windows on the market now and that was a self defeating thing to do. They should have been doing the exact opposite. I think they're trying to correct that huge mistake but damn.. Someone there just wanted to copy the competition and didn't understand why they were one of the richest companies in the world.

Yeah I've been tempted to buy Win8 lately but if 9 is out before long then maybe it's best to wait.

Their tentacles expand in direct correlation to the shrinking of their testicles.

Cutter, you like movies about gladiators?

It's narcissistic behavior. I suggest you all look up Sam Vaknin's YouTube videos on it. Here is a good start, they love to be hated and hate to be loved.

When Linux becomes as easy as Windows and games run the same way under it then people will adopt. Otherwise it'll always be a pipe dream.

There are plenty of distributions and Windowing Shells that are as easy as windows. The problem is that Linux has too many competing standards and formats that make it difficult for new users to make sense of it. The amount of redundant effort for certain things can hurt as much as it can help.

There ya go. Anyone from the outside looking in doesn't even know where to start. With Windows you know exactly what you're getting. As open as Linux is, that's also one of its major problems.

Yes. Those standards aren't really standards either. It's a moving target. One year it's this, the next it's that.

Speculation - Valve could invest a lot of money to help get games publishers to solidify on their own standards but then the Linux community might revolt as they are known to do. Then it would be a fork and not backed by the Linux community and that could be it's death blow.

Good to hear.

I'm more of the opinion that the game is far better than the show. Granted I only watched the first couple episodes but they were awful.

I think I'm done with Call of Duty and Battlefields - and Titans and all the rest...

I must be getting old...

No. *Smart*. You're growing a brain. Congrats on that!

+1 yes.

For me it's because the game is too arcadey with no meaningful teamwork but everyone soloing. That's why I still love Project Reality in BF2. Connecting with other players over a fantastic VOIP system and working towards a goal in a more immersive battlefield environment (not the graphics). I get to develop a working repore and get to know other players and their way of doing things. It's just so much more meaningful to me than this superficial console arcadey bullshit that is BF4. To me, BF4 wasn't designed by gamers who are inspired about what they do and what seasoned FPS gamers what.

I've been playing it some the past few days and I don't care for it so far. It just doesn't draw me in. It seems superficial. I don't care about thumpers or resources. The game just fails to try to connect to me. Instead it just plops me in the world with a steep learning curve (good) but no compelling reason to care to play. I can shoot stuff in lots of games, why play this one?

Yeah it wasn't clear that they were stealing the phones or just temporarily taking them to dump the data or something. Having your phone stolen by the police for a minor accident that didn't even involve your phone would be infuriating to say the least. Anything more than 24hrs is more than an inconvenience if the phone is used for work.

Why should they all of a sudden drop prices and ruin their margins now?

Because they won't ruin their margins since the yields should be great because the 28nm process is very mature now. They can drop prices and still make the same (or more) profit. Higher yields+?????+better price+more sales=profit! (phase 2 is unknown)
