Whatever, you never got to experience the abortion that was Windows 8.
Stuff like that puts real hair on your chest instead of penguin feathers.

I don't need to slam my face in to a pile of shit to know that it is, in fact, shit.

I've never pulled my own fingernails off either. Despite some evidence to the contrary, I'm a fairly smart guy.

Good job, AMD! When you make an innovative, affordable, quality product, sales will follow. Perhaps Intel should sit back and pay attention.

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.
Microsoft should revisit Windows 8 Metro interface, that was a real winner.

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.

Microsoft should actually focus on the core aspects of their OS, and get rid of some bloatware. Something like that would truly surprise me. Imagine an OS that works properly and efficiently with a minimal footprint? Yeah, like that's ever going to happen....
