deniable Re:Seen it first hand (113 comments)

Wait until you have a corrupt printer driver. "Word keeps crashing!" It's easier to PDF the thing and move on.

Aussie Government Proposes OpenDocument As the Standard Format

deniable Re:Free copies of office (113 comments)

Australian governments can't use Office 365. The data centre in Singapore and the Patriot act make it impossible. There are moves to remove some restrictions but I'm not holding my breath.

iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

deniable Re:why does your phone need software running on yo (519 comments)

Nice goalpost move. I didn't say you have to sync with a computer. I said that if you do sync with a computer, you need the service. Your excuse, it's still crap but you don't really need it.

iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

deniable Re:why does your phone need software running on yo (519 comments)

Frivolous lawsuits are also legal. I can't think of anyone with enough lawyers who'd want to build it. It would be a hobbyist that caved at the first C&D letter.

iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

deniable Re:why does your phone need software running on yo (519 comments)

Same here but ATH.exe goes rogue every so often. Kill the process and I can't sync an iDevice until next reboot. I can't be bothered looking into it. I don't need to sync that much.

Set Your Watches For the End of Windows XP

deniable Re:MS won't sell or support XP anymore? (712 comments)

But they are selling the current version. You just need to upgrade from version 5.1 to 6.2. That's being sold and supported.

Does Apple Need To Get Serious About Security?

deniable Re:My Experience (84 comments)

Yeah, but Microsoft used to be similar until they got repeatedly slammed by security issues. Once they got serious, things changed but it took time.

More From Canonical Employee On: "Why Mir?"

deniable Re:This just proves it's NIH (337 comments)

So, if you don't like the usual version, you create a new one and expect people to follow. Too meta for me.

Evernote Security Compromised

deniable Re:Shocking... (104 comments)

What notification email? Devices started having sync errors and I got a weird password prompt on the desktop. I assumed they'd nuked my account and went to the website. There's a link "If you received a password reset notification..." but you have to go to the blog for an explanation.
