Microsoft 'indoctrinates' Best Buy workers with anti-Linux 'lies' (DailyFinance)

Sep 7th 2009 11:41AM I am so sick of this Linux vs Windows bull.

Don't compare Windows to a Linux distribution. Linux is simply a choice, both systems have their advantages and disadvantages. If your IT people are noobs windows and the support that comes along with it has its place. And you also have to understand that most schools teach how to maintain Microsoft enviroments. Have you ever tried to hire a linux admin.... it is not an easy task.

Microsoft simply feels pressured as they know the future of computers is in cheap lower powered hardware. This is their response. In a way it is kind of pathetic.

Computers have plateaued in my opinion. Only like 1% of the population actually needs an i7 machine. They just want something that they can browse the Internet with and use some basic applications.

I cannot even believe that MS cares about the consumer market this much, oem home pcs is not where they make their money. It is on your work computer where your boss is paying $400 a year to maintain an enterprise agreement on your machine. Not to mention his sharepoint and exchange server costs.

Campaign launched to save Windows XP from retirement (Download Squad)

Jan 14th 2008 6:39PM Microsoft has something called downgrade rights for Vista to XP.

I sell software and when you talk operating systems you sell something called Windows Vista Business Upgrade which in our world translates to "I want Windows XP" .

This whole campaign is completely retarded. XP not being sold as an OEM bundle is the only major impact and I guarantee it is not MS pushing that ,it is companies like Dell saying they don't want to image 3 different OS's for every machine.

Two Bosses Enter: Teron Gorefiend vs. Gruul the Dragonkiller (WoW)

Oct 28th 2007 6:58AM Their is no way Teron could win this, gruul would absolutely pwn him. Imagine for a second a shadow priest with no power word shields and no fear taking on a prot spec warrior with ultra high dps and silence abilities.

Sure Teron is harder to down as a raid boss, but when looking at 1v1, one can't ignore that you are pinning a caster that cannot mitigate damage against an uber tank.

Imagine a pvp situation with a druid tank that can silence vs a shadow priest that has lost his best ability, fear.

Case and point if you think that Teron Gorefiend would win then you need to pvp some more and actually see what kind of battle this really would be.
