    Yeah, well, we all know what's the question here... can it run Crysis in software smoothly?

    Nah they'll still be stuck at 7,000 tabs. Limitations of Chrome, not the hardware. But at least they can power hundreds of monitors for a wack-ton of porn all at once (it's a wet nerd's dream).

    Because Musk doesn't have to buy up all of Telstra's old copper lines.
     
    There's residential 250mbps plans (if you're on FTTP). AUD$170/month from my ISP.
     
    You need to create the problem first before you sell the solution.

    Salv8 (sam) got a reaction from jagdtigger in Windows 10X - Microsoft New OS - Preview   
    this would be useful for tabets that need to run small win32 apps such as a cataloging system or small database frountend.
    only downside is that it would be extremely restricting for laptops.
    the entire point of a laptop is to have a portable desktop that can run the same programs and crap as one, this would defeat the purpose since some programs may not work correctly and many don't want to deal with that.
    hell businesses might not even use them because as far as i can tell, it has no active directory support which is a must for so many businesses.
    and even worse is that it can't run apps on boot, which again causes problems for things like antivirus's that NEED to be run at boot.
    i just don't see this taking off, i think many will stick with classic win32.
    if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    more cores = more money you have to pay to use them in vmware
    Microsoft does the same thing and look where it got them, most of the Internet's servers don't run windows...

    Salv8 (sam) reacted to Donut417 in Comcast Xfinity is using your router as a hotspot at your expense   
    The cable system being old has nothing to do with it. Cable internet (Coax) is a Standard like everything else. In this case cable co's use the Docsis standard. Most if not all are using at least Docsis 3.0, some like Comcast/Xfinity use Docsis 3.1 which is backwards compatible with Docsis 3.0. Where you run in to issues is firmware updates. Comcast has a list of modems they will support. As in support I mean they will provision to work on their network, they will provide firmware updates AND they have tested theses modems and firmware updates. You have companies like Charter that will provision a customer owned modem but provide no support outside of that. 
     
    Further more, most ISP's here in the US provide a gateway (Modem/Router) for a fee. The reason they can back door in to this equpiment is because they can help customers trying to fix things. For the average person however, a default config will work. They cant provide training for all networking equpiment the exists. So they provide their own and you have the choice of using that or 3rd party (Just without their support). 
     
    Also for the record. Back in the old days, the ISP's were not choosing a frequecny. They would register the mac address of the device connected to the modem. Most routers back then and some today have a mac address cloning feature that allows you to make your routers Mac address look like the device that was registered.

    They actually offered me an account for free a while back, was too lazy to bother. Sometimes I wish I did. It's a totally useless stat anyway, like does the hypervisor running on every server count? Other vendor virtual appliances that are Linux or BSD under the hood?
     
    Useless stat #1
     
    Useless Stat #2
     
    Seems like free is really popular.

    you do know that you require an account to see this, and that's like $700 a year, i could spend that on a new computer instead and probably get more use out of it.

    That had no effect on that because it wasn't a thing before that license model change, Windows has never been dominate for web hosting and other internet services. Microsoft milks more than enough money out of their licenses from corporate customers and their internal network servers.
     

     
    Just do the math on something as simple as 10 20 core SQL servers, then add on the number of CALs per user on the network. Microsoft's printing press is doing just fine 😉. That's before even looking at Azure costs.
