"Microsoft planning ‘sweeping visual rejuvenation of Windows."
So are they planning on copying Gnome or KDE?

Good job, AMD! When you make an innovative, affordable, quality product, sales will follow. Perhaps Intel should sit back and pay attention.
"New year, new rant- Linus Torvalds rails at Intel for 'killing' the ECC industry."
I do not disagree with Torvalds but the difference between regular DRAM and ECC in price, especially right now, is more than enough to deter the average buyer. ECC should be the standard without the massive price increase. The manufacturing cost difference between them is not significant enough to warrant an 80% price hike. It's basically the SCSI of memory. It's expensive because it can be, not because it needs to be.
What good is
greed and corruption artificial product differentiation and arbitrary profit markup, unless it benefits you.
Gotta agree about AMD. Finally having superior competition in the CPU marketspace is an awesome thing.
Metro was awesome for mobile. RIP Windows phone.
For desktop, not so much.
