jagermech: The squares should've had rounded edges, imo. That way Apple can sue the shiat out of them./Am I doing it right?
dickfreckle: rocky_howard: That's never been Microsoft's appeal. I use their products because they work and are dependable and ubiquitous. Sorry, if you're getting blue screens everyday blame your hardware and/or yourself.Nobody believes me when I tell them this, but the only BSOD I've ever had in, I dunno, 15 years of using Windows daily was due to a HDD failure. You know, the same failure that happens regardless of OS. I don't know why BSOD is such a go-to point of mockery for fanboys, but I never get them. I don't get viruses either, even when I don't run AV.I'm no genius. I'm savvy enough to build my own box with Newegg parts, but anyone who ever replaced the alternator on a car can do that, these days. If your Windows machine is constantly f*cking with you, it's 90% likely your own fault, or a hardware failure that can happen to anyone.
cxjohn: Subby obviously missed this four years ago. Obviously.Link

red5ish: Really, who give a crap?

Sum Dum Gai: dickfreckle: Nobody believes me when I tell them this, but the only BSOD I've ever had in, I dunno, 15 years of using Windows daily was due to a HDD failure. You know, the same failure that happens regardless of OS.It's probably because you've only been using Windows for 15 years (though I would expect using Win98 you'd see them fairly commonly).Certain operating systems (Win 3.0, Win 95) had serious stability issues (both for the same root cause - sacrificing stability for backwards compatibility). Systems running on the NT core do a lot better. Most BSODs now are hardware related, while in the earlier days, it was pretty common for software errors to bring the entire system down. For example, on 95/98/Me, anything that leaked GDI memory would bring the whole system to its knees pretty rapidly.Oh, and later versions default to rebooting instead of showing the BSOD, so you might have them and never know it.
kg2095: Using a $ symbol in Microsoft is very last century.
Gordon Bennett: EvilEgg: Mugato: So whoever "designed" that got paid? Like with money?It was a bunch of people. Committees always do the best work.We paid £400,000 for this piece of shiat. If you squint it looks like Lisa Simpson giving a blowjob, so at least we can claim the first ever Olympic logo Rule 34. Still not worth it.[laist.com image 640x424]I shudder to think about how much more we wasted on these two phallic cyclops Teletubbies.[images.triplem.com.au image 600x400]
