With the Surface Pro, Microsoft Is Trying To Recreate the PC Market

szmccauley Remember when? (379 comments)

Remember when Microsoft first demoed the surface concept, all those years ago? Man did they ever drop the ball under that Balmer guy. I haven't willingly bought a microsoft product for 13 years now, and even then it was grudgingly. Nothing will change that these days.

Fedora Core 2 Review

szmccauley Re:Plug it in? (467 comments)

Just work, as my last Win2k install? Which, in fact, didn't just work at all. In fact it was a horrible experience. The pcmcia wireless nic wasn't suppored, nor was the audio, nor was the video. I had to jump through some pretty big hoops to get the goddamn thing installed.

And you don't have to reboot your machine 400,000 times when you upgrade packages, once for the kernel and you're done.
