Apple's iPhone Developer License Agreement Revealed

Juln Re:Nintendo? (483 comments)

I still hate Nintendo from the stranglehold on developers they had in the 80s... they demanded exclusivity, i.e. if you developed for the NES, you could not release games at all for competing systems such as the Sega Master System. This was pretty annoying as the SMS was technologically superior to Nintendo's system.

How the Internet Didn't Fail As Predicted

Juln Re:Interesting (259 comments)

Like the way they didn't even have a power button?

I spent some time playing with my friends original b/w iPod a few years back and actually, I couldn't figure out how to do anything. Then I spent three minutes trying to find the damn power button. Wow, that was an amazing design.

Thank goodness, I couldn't believe nobody had mentioned Beowulf clusters yet. Is this slashdot, or NOT?

Microsoft Sends Flowers To Internet Explorer 6 Funeral

Juln IE heaven! (151 comments)

IE heaven would be: they cancel the Trident rendering engine and announce they're using WebKit.

Come on MS, you can do it!

Anti-Piracy Windows 7 Update Phones Home Quarterly

Juln Yeah, and... (819 comments)

Is there anyone who seriously is surprised by this? If so, I guess you haven't been paying attention to MS's behavior and plans for the past 15 years at least.

Wii Balance Board Gives $18,000 Medical Device a Run For Its Money

Juln Surfy (422 comments)

It says a lot about the wastefulness of institutions when it comes to buying hardware. I bet you the Defense Department could find lots of savings by sourcing their parts from Nintendo, too!

Ray Ozzie Calls Google Wave "Anti-Web"

Juln glug (256 comments)

Things that people from Microsoft say about both open source and google are often very stupid, and this bit from Mr. Ozzie is no exception.

I have an aversion to video, so unfortunately I cannot comment on the rest.

Microsoft Surface To Coordinate SuperBowl Security

Juln Re:Oh no (218 comments)

well, consider yourself lucky.

I've gotten about 5 in vista. Probably hardware, sure, I guess... Also, explorer (taskbar) crashes like 3 times a day, only in 4 day clusters every other week.

Nothing like that happens in Linux on the same laptop.

Windows 7 Leaked To Pirates By Microsoft?

Juln Yes, yes (236 comments)

First 'Mojave', now 'Windows 7'.

Same thing - Vista with a new theme.

This whole 'Windows 7' thing has the feel of an MS marketing blitz. Of course they 'leaked' the OS to the public themselves.

First Look At Windows 7 Beta 1

Juln Re:Let's Reiterate... (898 comments)

The Linux kernel was overhauled majorly towards the release of 2.0, and then massively for 2.2. Major portions were rewritten for 2.4, which had some big advantages. It bears no resemblance to Minix under the hood - that's a joke.

But that's not fair for a comparison to 'Windows', which is much more than a kernel. Have the codebases to KDE or GNOME have been overhauled? Yes, each has been undergoing massive development in the past 10 years, and they are more stable and sophisticated than ever.

In the Windows world, MS was so sure that even XP was not much of an advance over Win 2000, that they didn't even give it a new version number... let's count. NT 4... NT 5 (win2K), XP (?), Vista (Windows 6), windows 7. Where did the extra number go? Ah yes, XP is basically Windows 2000. They spent that 18 months fixing bugs and dreaming up a new name.

Is there some new rule that 20% of the posts on a story have to be about Slashdot moderation?

First Look At Windows 7 Beta 1

Juln Re:Note to self (898 comments)

I think the problem is that Vista is overall so slow and fragile, that it's hard to care if it has 'network and I/O priority' or not.

Juln Re:why aRe:They're glowing! (898 comments)

I gave Vista a fair chance, honestly. It is adequate, but pretty lousy given the resources MS had to make it not suck... and it sucks. They've gone nowhere in the past 8 years.

I had no idea Slashdot had these super special features until recently. I'm very excited to be taking part in this social and technological revolution.
