Comcast Launches Superfast Internet To Fight FiOS

drwtsn32 Not very useful (209 comments)

I have 100Mbps service with Charter and find that many (most?) sites cannot or do not deliver content at that speed. Some clearly do (like Steam), so I know I am getting 100Mbps service, but for the most part this speed doesn't "feel" much faster than the 40Mbps I had before.

The Desktop Security Battle May Be Lost

drwtsn32 Re:This again? Really? (389 comments)

Interesting.. an iMac from 2001 would have a G3 processor. G3 support was dropped in Mac OS X 10.5. Mac OS X 10.6 is the latest. So how the hell does his G3 Mac run OS X 10.6?

Mozilla Mulls Dropping Firefox For Win2K, Early XP

drwtsn32 Re:Dropping a big selling point! (455 comments)

It used to be that one of the big selling points of Mozilla/Firefox was that it could run on almost any OS! ....

What happened to all of that?

Not having to ensure compatibility with really old operating systems enables the developers to spend more time adding features and capabilities, for one.

drwtsn32 Re: This is obscene! (767 comments)

M$ wouldn't let me enable AERO That's not because of your RAM. It's because of your video card and driver. Try educating yourself on the requirements to run Aero.
