The Moron Resistance

Posted 01-20-2009 at 09:39 AM by bitpicker (Bitpicker's Blog: Random musings and rants)

On a different forum I've been having quite a lively discussion on computer security. The most recent worm outbreak which, as of today, appears to have infected at least ten million computers, has triggered some comments by myself about the sorry state of Windows security.

I am comparing Windows to a house sold to you without any doors because this is oh so user-friendly. No fiddling with locks, just walk in and out whenever you feel like it.

And when, some time later,...

THANK "BOB"!

Tags styles

OK well maybe not "Bob" personally but 'god' didn't seem the right thing to thank at the moment. OK Off topic.

The other day I realized that the only way to fix webpage style conflicts with dark themed conflicts was to use a firefox add on. A little bit of searching later revealed "Stylish" Tnx-to-da-god-be this solves so many problems. It basically applies your own personal css styles to any page individually or all at once!

Why Desktop Linux is nowhere, part 4

Posted 01-19-2009 at 02:38 PM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

In Part 3 I cried over Linux soft skills. In order to finally loose any hope that improving what is mentioned in parts 2 and 3 may help Desktop Linux, let us notice that a good Windows style desktop is incompatible with Linux by design. This is the last part on Desktop Linux being nowhere, so the conclusion is included.

System configuration is done in *nix in the same manner through scripts and configuration files for 20+ years. This alone proofs that 1) script and configuration...

The Mythical Desktop Percentage Point

Posted 01-19-2009 at 02:37 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
