  1. Re: Windows 8 lets microsoft remove data without your consent

    The obvious answer is malware. Google has done the same thing with Android, and there was a lot less paranoia - because apparently Google is so much more trustworthy.

    Re: Knight's Ferry

    Pretty sure it'll have programming support for both Windows and Linux.

    Remember, it's not really a general-purpose CPU - it's a PCIe co-processor card, like a Tesla or a GRAPE-DR or any number of...

    Re: Four Cores in a Cellphone ?

    That's only relevant if you have a workload that will be meaningfully accelerated by multithreading. That isn't most of them.

    Re: Four Cores in a Cellphone ?

    This argument again...

    What cell phone workload, ever, can you think of that provides three compute-intensive threads? I'm skeptical that any real one - not something vague like "gaming" - does or...

    Just to be clear, I wasn't saying that reverse-engineering whatever driver or similar tool you're talking about is unethical. I was referring to the guys talking about RE'ing Windows, which is...

    How is that unethical? Nobody is forced to buy a new operating system. It's their choice.

    HP-UX and AIX are both assuredly not free, and they run on custom high-performance RISC hardware (HP Integrity and IBM Power Systems.)

    Generally, Linux will be reasonably close to the UNIX systems...

    Re: Favorite retro OS

    Not close. AXP was just DEC's codename for the Alpha processor. Windows 2000 was written by MS, it was actually a fairly minor revision to NT4. If you go back far enough, NT does have DEC roots, but...

    Re: Favorite retro OS

    Probably RSX-11 or RSTS/E. I also like old OS's that are still actively developed and in some ways very advanced, namely OpenVMS, z/OS, and z/VSE.

    How is that not bashing? Can you tell me the major architectural flaws in the WinNT operating system? It seems like a pretty straightforward and decent RSX-11/VMS derivative to me.

    Re: What's the point of MINIX?

    The point of Minix was never to teach people how to use Unix, it was to be a simple Unix-like operating system to teach OS design and development.

    The owner of Unix is either Novell or SCO, probably Novell. That being said, SCO makes the closest thing to a pure Unix distribution that exists (UnixWare and OpenServer.)

    Re: The UNIX Thread

    If a third party intentionally rewrote all current Linux code and distributed it as "Linux-like" with slight incompatibilities... it would not longer be Linux.
