Autodesk To Follow Adobe's 'Rent Our Software' Business Model?

Jackie_Chan_Fan Re:Autodesk is as bad as they get (89 comments)

Yup. Feature development at autodesk has almost disappeared since they sent much of their software development overseas to asia. Softimage for example is an embarrassment the past two versions. I'm not sure it matters if Autodesk changes their pricing policy because there may be nothing of value to buy.

"How do we know he didnt invent the bloody thing?!"

Thought the same thing immediately. Remember, Scotty was talking into a MAC mouse when he entered the formula for transparent aluminum. Now we know time travel is real.

Microsoft Reacts To Feedback But Did They Get Windows 8.1 Right?

Jackie_Chan_Fan Re:I tested Windows 8.1 (543 comments)

Nerds on slashdot are the worst kind. They are religious zelots that love their linux and hate microsoft, no matter how shitty linux actually is, or how good microsoft actually is. Thats not to say linux is shitty or that MS does good all the time... but theres no room for fair honest opinions around here. Its all religious holy wars.

Verizon Accused of Intentionally Slowing Netflix Video Streaming

Jackie_Chan_Fan Re:More likely YouTube, too (202 comments)

I'm on Fios. for 3 weeks Youtube was completely unwatchable. There is a thread on fios's user forums about this, and it was fucking disgraceful.

Fios did nothing, no response from them, nothing. I reported everything to google in hopes google would fist fuck fios into submission.

A Serious Proposal To Fix Windows 8

Jackie_Chan_Fan Like you linux zelots care about Windows. (578 comments)

Windows 8 is a great os with some UI improvements that arent perfect. Get over it. I'm happy with it. You're all fucking linux users anyway so who gives a fuck what you think. You enjoy a pain in the ass OS to work with, that has no fucking apps what so ever.

Xbox One Used Game Policy Leaks: Publishers Get a Cut of Sale

Jackie_Chan_Fan None of this will benefit the artists making games (379 comments)

This will all go to the suits. Fuck them. Fuck microsoft. Everyone else will still work overtime without pay, hard crunch deadlines, low pay, and no health care on a project basis.

The only one feeling the change will be the gamer buying games and the suits pocketing all the profit of those artists.

Windows: Not Doomed Yet

Jackie_Chan_Fan Let see.. running windows 8, yup. (737 comments)

Yeah I'm sorry but anyone saying windows is doomed is just not paying attention. Most of computers out there are running windows and people like it.

There is no fantasy world where suddenly no one is running windows. Everyone is running windows. All is fine.

Senator Feinstein: We Need Video Game Control

Jackie_Chan_Fan Re:Easier Targets (424 comments)

Actually I think its more evil than that.

Its not less lobbyists, its more so that she's saying to the lobbyists "Pay me mother fuckers or I will make your lives miserable"

She's just another corrupt scumbag that reminds us why gun ownership is as important as free speech. Anyone in government even contemplating the idea of making laws that violate the first and second amendment are the very same people that Americans should stand against. They are anti American, and they are in violation of our ideals.

Senator Feinstein: We Need Video Game Control

Jackie_Chan_Fan Freedom of Speech, Expression and Ideas = danger (424 comments)

We should just ban freedom of speech and expression. That way no child will ever die. Sandy Hook as shown us that It's more important that we all be controlled by law in every way, including our thoughts, our sex lives, and our voices, because with freedom of ideas, you might snap and go crazy one day and kill someone. Its just best that we all give in, and obey the system... because the system will never ever hurt you.

Falling Windows RT Tablet Prices Signify Slow Adoption

Jackie_Chan_Fan Re:Who is the core audience for Windows? (290 comments)

Thats not true. I upgraded to Windows 8 from 7. Its a great OS. Its essentially the same as 7 with a start menu change, and some performance improvements in the area of start up. I actually like a lot of the windows ui changes. The start menu is fine, I rarely ever use it. The biggest problem is that the App store is terribly designed, and theres no killer app that really warrants the start menu. Actually I take that back, Netflix's app is pretty damn good and you can split screen it with the desktop. I do this while rendering, because netflix app uses gpu for video processing, and it doesnt hurt my rendering performance at all.

Falling Windows RT Tablet Prices Signify Slow Adoption

Jackie_Chan_Fan Re:of couese! (290 comments)

Windows 8 is fine. This is Windows 8 RT, which does not run any existing windows applications. That is just something no one asked for.

Falling Windows RT Tablet Prices Signify Slow Adoption

Jackie_Chan_Fan No one wanted Windows without Windows Apps. (290 comments)

MS made a mistake, although its not a big mistake. Microsoft wanted to have their OS running on ARM just in case ARM took over every aspect of computing. It makes sense that they invest time and money in a potential future.

However what consumers wanted, was not a windows 8 for which they could not run windows applications on. Thats the biggest problem with Windows 8 RT. It just fails to do everything Windows is known for, having ALL of the windows applications.

The windows 8 Pro tablets are far more appealing and rightfully so. They are great devices.

Valve Starts Publishing Packages For Its Own Linux Distribution

Jackie_Chan_Fan Re:Finally (310 comments)

Nobody makes anything for linux :) Windows on the other hand offers everything, and the OS is pretty damn user friendly compared to linux.

Frankly if anyone had a chance at beating MS, it was Apple... but then Jobs died. MS has been doing very well with Windows 7 and Windows 8.
