Borland Being Purchased By Micro Focus

Howpostsgetratedsuck floppy disks (351 comments)

I loved getting a new version of borland C. You would receive a box with 23 3.5" floppy disks and have to sit there for a few hours while the installation software said, "Please insert disk #" Of course this was on my massive 15 inch monitor. I was totally amazed when I received a version with a CD-ROM. Not that my PC had a CD-ROM, but a little Novel Networks magic and you could remote mount a drive. Heady days indeed.

IBM's But-I-Only-Got-The-Soup Patent

Howpostsgetratedsuck cell phone (267 comments)

If they put a phone number and bill number at the bottom of the check, each patron could call the number, enter the bill number, and pay his portion of the check by amount and credit card # (CC# possibly encoded in the phones memory, passwd for security, etc..). I'm sure application software can make it work on even the smallest cell phone lcd. Oh dam! Public disclosure. Now I lost my patent!

The market has rejected Linux desktops.Get over it

Howpostsgetratedsuck Howpostsgetratedsuck writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Howpostsgetratedsuck (612917) writes "Hiner writing for the TechRepublic has an article that Linux will never take over the desktop. FTA:"It’s time to stop all of the misguided predictions about Linux becoming a force on the desktop. That ship has sailed. The masses don’t want it. Businesses don’t want it. Even Google can’t change that."

I've been reading /. for a long time and I haven't seen anything in the desktop market to believe otherwise."
