Study of MMOG Proves Human Interaction Theory

NPerez For those who haven't RTFA (119 comments)

I scanned through it quickly & my understanding is that this is more specifically studying the avoidance of friendships with friends of enemies. That's a little more complicated & interesting than simply 'avoiding stressful relationships'. It is a little obvious, but it says a lot about the formation of social groups & how they become divided.

Games Workshop Sues Warhammer Online Fansite

NPerez Seems reasonable to me. (182 comments)

Rather than hopping on the 'Screw GW!' bandwagon, I actually decided to rtfa and look into the situation.

The site was originally a fan-site, and it was welcomed by GW. Then it was bought out by a corporation called Curse. Curse is running it with intent to make profit. It's common sense that a for-profit site with 'Warhammer' in the name is not exactly fair business.

It's not a fan-site anymore. It's a corporate asset

Google Docs Replaces OpenOffice In Ubuntu Netbook Edition

NPerez Who cares? (298 comments)

Are defaults really that important? I'd assume that, at least for now, anyone using Linux (even on a netbook) is probably savvy enough to install whatever Office apps they personally prefer. I think installing stuff in Ubuntu is even easier than on Windows - you just check it off & seconds later you have it.

XP Users Are Willing To Give Windows 7 a Chance

NPerez Re:Well of Course (720 comments)

sorry, but i think this is nonsense. Find me a place that actually has demo machines for Win7. I honestly want to know where I could check that out. Everyone I know who's using it has downloaded it on their PC. I have it on my low-end laptop & it's staying there.

Oh, and in case anyone's wondering, the reason I like Windows 7 is because I'm a soulless human being, fully devoted to Microsoft and getting paid to defend their products etc etc etc.

EU Says MS Must Offer Other Browsers; Now What?

NPerez Re:What next? I'll tell you what's next... (911 comments)

Having "Or in addition to" as an option is important. That means "Instead of" is probably out of the question. And I think that the way that this is worded actually describes the way Windows already works - I can choose and install a competing browser to use in addition to IE, and I can set it as the default. Is there any specific statement that elaborates upon when/where we get this capability to install other browsers? I just don't see where this technically introduces any new requirements if there isn't anything more specific.
