Ballmer Leaves Microsoft Board

johnsie Re:moving vs. stationary (142 comments)

Nonsense. Microsoft were the ones who brought desktop computing into the mainstream. Their "status quo" gave users an interface that they were famililar and comfortable with. Only when they started changing things around did it get bad. What are the alternatives? A company like Apple that is even more evil? Amateur Linux source applications which are lacking in quality? Let's face it LibreOffice is poorly coded, badly designed and alot slower than Microsoft Office. Most Linux apps have poor interfaces and very little in the way of quality assurance.

Ballmer Leaves Microsoft Board

johnsie Re:Microsoft is a spent force (142 comments)

Actually many people who install "Classic Shell" on Windows 8 prefer it to Windows 7 because Windows 8 is alot faster, more stable and has quicker boot times. People who complain about Metro are just too dumb to install classic shell.

Elementary OS "Freya" Beta Released

johnsie Re:Usability is THE killer feature that Linux need (209 comments)

Linux developers are notoriously terrible at designing user interfaces. For example: 1. The Unity lens 2. GIMP 3. Open/LibreOffice And those are the "big" applications. When you start looking at the smaller applications its gets even worse. Alot of half-assed, ugly looking applications. Then there is hardware support, which they like to blame on the hardware vendors, but if you look at the poor quality user interfaces you can see that the vendors are only part of the problem. I'm not saying all Linux developers are lazy or poor at design, but that's what comes across when I use Linux applications. It's missing quality control and developers have no incentive to make their programs look nice.

johnsie Re:Android on my pi? (42 comments)

If people sideload my app they wont receive automatic updates. I guess I could put an update downloader into the app though. I regularly update my apps.

I don't care if it bends. Does it blend? That is the question.

MicroxWin Creates Linux Distribution That Runs Debian/Ubuntu & Android Apps

johnsie Re:Android on my pi? (42 comments)

As an android developer I do the same. Google Play is very convenient for developers. Most of my apps seem to magically appear on other marketplaces anyway after they go on Play. I've heard it was because some of the broadcom components of the PI are closed source.

Why did they use closed hardware? I think my next board is going to be a riotboard.

johnsie Android on my pi? (42 comments)

Apparently there are no stable releases of Android for the Raspberry PI. I would prefer to have the whole Android distro on my phone, but I guess this is the nexr best thing. Looking forward to testinging it.

New Raspberry Pi Model B+

johnsie Does it have audio in yet? (202 comments)

We're wanting to put some of these inside wind turbines so operators have the option to listen for potential problems. Having audio in is important for that. I think maybe some other boards have audio in. I'd be interested in hearing other ideas for broadcasting audio over tcp/ip from a network connected wind turbine..

Cool story, bro. I stopped reading as soon as you mentioned 3g. This is 2014 and not every consumer has the same requirements or wishes as you.
