Linux May Succeed Windows XP As OS of Choice For ATMs

j35ter Re:For the ones arguing that M$ gave 10 Years Noti (367 comments)

Yes, and the vendor would have made sure that their platform is backwards compatible. With Industry, I don't limit myself just to IT!

This is not just about support, but also about availability and continuity. The fact that YOU did not have to pay a cent means nothing when compared to companies that licenced millions of copies of XP (>2.000.000 ATMs). and that soon will have to switch to another product for replacing old and/or broken machines. By industry standards, Microsoft is an unreliable player!

j35ter For the ones arguing that M$ gave 10 Years Notice (367 comments)

It still costs a shitload of money to change platforms for an established product - especially since Win7/8/... are quite different with regards to file structure, user management, security, etc. And by nowmost security holes have been closed in their version of XP. Well, now that they switch to something open, M$ won't be able to pull another XP on them :-)

Russian State TV Anchor: Russia Could Turn US To "Radioactive Ash"

j35ter Re:And the US could turn Russia into vapor (878 comments)

I think you underestimate the size of Russia. Even if you take out Moscow, St.Petersburg, Volgograd and other major cities, you would still have a functioning economy and militatry, try this with NY, DC Dallas and LA! The Russians learned teir lesson the hard way, starting with Napoleon and up to the Nazis!

MEPs Vote To Suspend Data Sharing With US

Your military might be impressive when facing a bunch of goatf*ckers hiding in caves. Facing modern armies (EU, Russia, China), it starts looking quite shabby.

Croatia issues a jailterm for unlicensed Windows

j35ter j35ter writes  |  more than 3 years ago

j35ter (895427) writes "Google Translation from the Article:

Municipal Court in Sisak issued a final conviction against MG from Moenice who is found guilty for, among other things, for the criminal offense referred to in Art. 230. Paragraph 1 Criminal law — unauthorized use of copyright works. The defendant was sentenced to imprisonment for a term of one year probation with a probation of three years. The court also ordered the seizure of computers used to commit a crime.

This happened to a guy who bought an allegedly stolen laptop wit a preinstalled pirated copy of windows. The article continues with a comment from the BSA:

This ruling is important because of the reasons for the verdict which the court stated: "It is a known fact, often present in the media, to private individuals that their computers — whether they be classical [sic] or laptop computer — may not install an operating system, respectively it is necessary to obtain approval of the person entitled to give permission to install the operating system so the same system could be used freely. The court deemed irrelevant whether the defendant personally installed the operating system, or whether it was done by someone at his request or if he used an operating system already installed. Defendant, if he bought a secondhand laptop, he should inform himself with regards to the installed operating system — even though the former owner did not inform him about it "

God help us all!"

Yahoo news reports that in a 9-5 vote, the ICANN board decided to drop the proposed .xxx domain, apparently over fears that they might enter the "content regulation business" [sic].
Looks like porn-addict discrimination to me. Here's the link: ICANN rejects creation of '.xxx' domain"
