rajafarian Anti trust investigation (255 comments)

Maybe as part of their anti trust investigation in the US and in Europe they were directed to suck so that some users would leave it and go elsewhere?

Class-action Suit Filed Against Microsoft Over Surface Write Off

rajafarian Re:Amazing ... (212 comments)

It seems to me that Microsoft has no idea why people have been buying their products this whole time.

It looks to me that the current people weren't there in the 90s and 00s so they don't know how Microsoft got to be so popular: by eliminating choice. They seem to think that people specifically wanted Windows instead of getting Windows because that's what came with the computer because Microsoft killed other options like OS/2 and BEOS.

Attackers Tweet As They Assault UN Development Program Compound

rajafarian Re:Given the UN's track record in Africa... (240 comments)

I have to say, I can understand how they would view the UN in such a way. The UN's policies are pretty firm in their pushing of dependence, which is unsurprising given the way the wealthier and more influential nations are able to control it.

I think they may be confusing the IMF with the UN. You know, "Before we went hungry and that was that, but now we're hungry, and in debt."

CO2 Levels Reach 400ppm at Mauna Loa For First Time On Record

rajafarian Re:Why is Global Warming So Bad? (497 comments)

I think that global warming by itself doesn't sound so bad, what's a couple of degrees warmer every day? What does sound pretty bad is the potential for extreme weather due to the increase in water in the air. Or something like that. Tornados, droughts, floods, those don't sound cool at all!

Does the Higgs Boson Reveal Our Universe's Doomsday?

rajafarian Re:Seriously? (421 comments)

I agree. But what if, what if we're looking in the wrong direction. What if Buddha was right and the secrets lie inside, not outside of us?

rajafarian Fractal universe (421 comments)

XAOS. I was playing around with XAOS once and it dawned on me that that is the nature of the physical universe, the fractal universe.

rajafarian Re:Kool Aid (198 comments)

Ah, come on, I'm not saying Kool Aid wasn't involved, but did you check out the other guy? What do you think he would have done about the impeding police state? Of course we don't really know because his answer would have depended on who was asking it. We're F'ed.
