Isn't it similar to what they use now?

Microsoft already knows what you want to do with your servers.  This is why they hide everything the way they do.

The operating system works best if you install nothing on it, and never log in.  Which, in Microsoft's world, is precisely how their servers should be used.

No network connectivity is tantimount to the security of Windows Servers anyway.

Actually they want you to let your servers sit there, licensed and paid for but idle, while you subscribe to their hosted services and use that instead.

Because ... y'know ... it's in the cloud.

There's so much to love about the cloud paradigm. The flexibility to provision new hardware with the click of a mouse has probably saved us 2-3 full time salaried positions at my shop.

The discipline that the cloud paradigm necessarily imposes brings further benefits: every server must have a full set of provisioning scripts, with very few ifs ands or buts permitted.

Starting today, it is no longer called "the cloud." It is called "ZomboCloud."
Because you can do *anything* in ZomboCloud. Anything at all. The only limit is yourself!

I am aware of the irony that this came from Zombie Fleeb.

The unobtainium is obtainium at ZomboCloud!1

The Windows H8Tred just keeps on spreading.

I enjoyed this article because like this author, I didn't hate previous versions of windows. I didn't even hate vista. I disliked vista. I hate windows 8.
If rumors are at all to be believed, I will hate the new Xbox
as well.

Bought my wife a new laptop...came with Windows Mobile...er...Windows 8.

All I can say is "wow, what a steaming pile of..."

I especially love the "apps" that come preinstalled, and upon opening, tell you that there's an update available, which is required in order to proceed...but when you select to upgrade it, there's no upgraded version in the Windows "app store".

Whose idea was it to make this unsuccessful abortion the next wave?

I have been to several 'big box' electronics stores over the past few months and have found more than a couple of them marketing 'upgrades' to WINDOWS 7 for folks buying machines with WinBlows 8 preinstalled.

I really never paid much attention to what the machines have for operating systems. The first thing I do with a new machine is install my current favorite flavor of linux - makes the whole WinBlows issue rather irrelevent.

Is the secure boot suppose to prevent you from installing a working operating system?

If by "working" you mean any OS other than Windows, then yes.

Intel-based machines are supposed to ship with an option to turn off "secure" boot. Not so for ARM-based machines, but the number of those being sold with doze8 is practically nil anyway.

Yeah, I still wouldn't mind being able to install linux on an RT device, not that I really want one, a real OS would make it far more compelling.

Subject: Funny video about next xbox

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This video pretty much sums up my feelings on the next Xbox.

I REALLY do hope all the "internet always on" rumors are false.
