Uh and why not? Consumers WANT windows thats why they choose windows based computers instead of linux when offered. I know this for a fact because I have migrated 3 families to linux, but it took a huge amount of convincing before they believed that the old stereotypes about the complexity of linux user interface were no longer true. I had to chart all their usage needs and preconfigure the distro for them to include all the _proprietary_ code they needed daily, after which they are using linux happily. If they just bought the machine from the shop they would never in a million years have been able to figure out how to install and configure all the stuff I had to do for them.If preinstallations were illegal and user could freely decide of which OS should he purchase, windows would NEVER get up!
Ah so you openly admit the open driver has been a huge train wreck and just recently started to work anywhere at the level the closed source drivers were working all these years? Yeah closed source sucks LOL! You're nuts thats what it is.A step up from 1% performance in 2011 to 80%-110% in 2013 relative to catalyst performance without ANY of catalyst bugs is "slow and buggy". Your assumptions just fit your mind pattern.
You're an idiot. Everyone knows that Wine cheats with the ratings and many of the platinum games are buggy as hell on Wine. It's enough to just RUN to get the platinum or gold lol. Nobody mentions anything about running without crashing the whole games worth or having anything else but 5fps slideshowOh thanks, this comes from whom, from a complete retard like you? A retard issuing retardation certifications? Sounds quite familiar - like microsoft with windows certifications. Ahaha!
Actually I do make a mistake - but not the crap you are talking up. Because, the status "platinum or gold" requires for the game to run out of the box as per wine appdb rules. Silver may include small non-vital bugs. And only bronze requires any fiddling around - but still the title would run. The mistake I did was to filter ALL applications from windumbs, not just games.
Why do you continue with that mindless dribble when everyone knows Wine is a big fail when it comes to games? Even if all those games you list would actually work (which they don't, at least on playable level) they would still constitute about 1% of the game titles available today lol.If we limit ourself to windumbs games, then the numbers become even more crunchy:
1971 platinum game
1803 gold games
1456 silver games
this makes 5230 games out of 8230, that run out of the box.
there are 1136 bronze games, that still run, but may require fiddling around, or simply using mouseclicks as with Crossover Games or PlayOnLinux.
this makes 6366 games out of 8230, that run on Linux.
the garbage portion, that is not working in current wine version is: 1864
Or in layman terms, Linux runs easily 77,35% of all windows games.
Only 22,64% of titles may not execute on Linux. This are usually the titles that execute no more on modern windumbs anyway, due to DRM or bindings to libraries that are long broken (like Macromedia Shockwave, nonexistant video codecs etc).
Realistically, Linux runs 3 out of 5 games out of the box, and 4 ouf of 5 requiring installing some software like Dx library overrides etc.
The performance with CSMT patch is on par with windumbs now btw.
We can only agree that you're mentally insane. Insane people are the only ones who fail to see their insanity or clear mistakes like that pointed to them.Haha! Well, we have to agree:
Yes as previously said OpenGL performance sucks on windows, even if you attempt to use a crutch and choose a display card which is originally designed for CAD use and later converted for consumers lol.Oh, rly?
Note, that it was in time when ondemand bug was not fixed, hence the Linux performance is lower.
Actually, this bug still persists on windumbs, if CPU is set to Mobile/Powersave profile instead of Office/Desktop.
Your whole post was so full of fail that it does the job by itself. No needYou have nothing to counter? Good!
Its located on Microsofts servers. Nothing is downloaded from general internet dumbass.And where is update database located? In the rain forest? Or does linux package management act different and searches the internets via browser instances?
You're simply insane. Compression methods have nothing to do with distro specific installers. Windows installations are done with UNIVERSALLY WORKING methods where on linux you need to know exactly what your distro needs or in the worst case, compile the whole application or driver yourself.And how about CAB?
And about RAR?
And about 7z?
And what about WB/VBS?
And what about INF?
Or is tar.gz any different outside of being archive?
No, tar.gz may contain binaries and no source, unless you know.
Or is deb or rpm too any different outside of being installation files, exactly same to MSI - archive with description, installation script etc?
Inf btw is an installation script and usually comes with CAB. Just Inf, Cab and no Exe.
Fact is - I contributed to WMI and wrote my own installers for installshield. Come, amuse me!
LOL wtf are you talking about? I have never countered a website that I would need that wouldn't be easily configurable. If the site doesnt work without js I simply choose an another website. If the website has links to youtube or other known provider like vimeo, I can make an exception for those. I never enable any scripts that point to Google or other advertisers naturally. Noscript is excellent and it stops all drive-by attacks to their tracks.If you run noscript in firefox, you generate more problems than solutions, because you can't figure out what exactly the scripts are doing and most of the websites use JS.
Noscript is all thats needed as it disables any Java etc. from running. Besides I never install Java to my windows computers its totally unnecessary. And I never plug any USB sticks to my computers which are not my own and used only on my own computers lol. Thats a basic security principle.The wiser plugin is Ghostery, but it will not protect against faulty JS. Only way to protect is disable Java, disable Flash, disable JS and live in Cave, erm, localhost. This is the story about living without AV in windumbs. Even then, you have to disallow usage of USB sticks, because its really hard to cut the Autorun and even lastest windumbs autoexecutes .infs. Same story over and over again.
Thats all nice but I have never seen any of those so continue to live in delusional fears by all means. Nothing you write affects checking a computer from a boot dvd because the check is done using a different OS lol.Btw, what you wrote about checking infections is completely retarded, because will be checking an infected machine and some malware infects NTFS streams and OEM recovery partitions. Also most of the malware I know, injects itself into ANY binaries that exist on the system, including those contained in ANY archive it finds (rar, 7z, zip etc) and some encrypts harddrive.
You sound like a typical Mac user who thinks his Mac is impervious to attacks just because nobody bothered to make them YET lol. Your link is such a fail anyway as the attack is targeted towards the common OS, not your marginal piece of shit you use. If linux some day will reach, say, popularity of OSX it will get socially engineered attacks such as 'animated puppy screensaver' which contain a payload and which every granny on the planet will gladly install. If they ever will use linux that is.Oh, the funny stuff I forgot for good!
Failed to read any hack fest statistics?
Social engineering is like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT7O_ipt9EU
And trojan threats of WHAT?
Denial of facts, sticking to your delusions. Go seek advice, seriously.Sure. Next step would you be offering me advices? I take no advices from hole-exploited people, haha, thanks!
OOOH about 0.001% of software has 1 click installers? 1 click which works on which distros? Debian Lenny, Wheezy? Ubuntu? Arch? OpenSUSE? Insert random distro here. WOW! Compare that to 99.99% of Windows installers being 1 click (and spare the retarded complaining on having to accept EULA next next which you whiners always do).Why, OpenXCom had 1-click installer. VLC had 1-click installer. GSmartctrl had 1-click installer. Even upgraded drivers for Opensuse from pontostroy have 1-click installer. So rare as your arguments?
Too bad 99% of the software on this planet are distributed through internet. Your puny sources contain a ridiculously limited amount of software - and if anyone cared they could be infiltrated with malicious code real easy. http://www.securityweek.com/linux-so...rg-gets-hacked PWNED!You still download software from internets? Haha, still trying to win? Don't make me laugh!
Keep hiding your head in the bushes for all I care. This happens almost every time if you try to install some interesting older project which is no longer supported by the developer.Never heard of anything like that - details please, or never happend (tm).
LOL! Gnome, MATE etc. are not used by the majority of the planet and theyre considered as parts of linux environment. Its obvious youre grasping for straws just to find SOME examples of open source that isn't a total train wreck. So everyone makes money in the prime time doing what? WRITING CLOSED SOURCE CODE! LOL! Because thats what brings the food on the table and buys you the laptop with which to do your hobbies in the evening! It's painfully obvious you have no idea how corporations function if you think closed source is closed within the company personnel loool! All code is stored, reviewed and worked upon by all the necessary developers. It makes no difference if a single dev gets hit by a bus because a new one will be HIRED to take his place. On open source NOBODY will be hired to take anyones place. So if nobody is interested enough to waste his time with the project, it will simply die quietly as most open source projects do, sadly.Gnome3, MATE, KDE(any version), Fx, LibreOffice, gThumb, Okular/Evince, PlayonLinux, Dosbox, Virtualbox, GIMP, Blender, Xsane, Gnome games, MediaInfo, VLC, Filezilla, Liferea, Code::Blocks, Peazip are commercially backed by CLOSED SOURCE software providers?? Wtf? Everyone makes money in the prime time, it could be for coding or for selling copies - that are the principle differences. Developer-hit-by-bus argument much more applies to proprietary model, because he has his "secrets", capisce?
You're an idiot. The only reason for having closed source in the first place is because of business secrets. The ONLY reason. And yes I offend any communists, communism is nothing but oppression wrapped in lies. History shows this. Move to North Korea fucker.not. Simply because you were too dumb to realize that the source code has nothing to do with commercial secrets. Regarding communism, do you try to offend Dalai Lama, he is communist you know? Also, why am I "you communist" where I explicitly stated that commercial has nothing to do with proprietary? You are like chicken pong pong. No brains, all reflexes.
You're too retarded to understand that the VM was built there to support 16-bit code and considerable effort is having had all the time to preserve compatibility in new 32-bit OS versions. You twist like a fish on a hook when everyone can see youre already flopping in the boat. The backwards support is built in the OS, period.There is no trouble to keep it backwards compatible, there is trouble to find a paying customer to maintain that outdated code base, - that could work, if it was opensource, but due to M$ policy - you are offered a nice big cup of ... Do you really think, this "flexibility" does commercial supporters a favor??
The difference between a VM and real binary, is like difference between bare hardware and virtual machine. No metal, all pseudointerfaces. You said, windums has 16 bit code, where it turns out there is none like since death of Chicago?
As others here have also concluded, you're the only clown in this thread. Full of paranoia, delusions and excuses. I feel sorry for you, really.But I do enjoy educating clowns! The time well worth it! Ahahaha!
