  1. tbh I think that Microsoft needs to realize that they can't separate Windows from Win32, or many other legacy components. Without it, Windows won't sell, as they've seen four... five times already. They can't make Windows into a combined mobile/desktop operating system. They can't rely on brand recognition to sell either. There's a reason why Google and Apple offer separately branded desktop/laptop and mobile operating systems. Because trying to combine the two just doesn't work.
  2. Every few years Microsoft tries to take on ChromeOS and then fails each time. It's just a fact of life at this point tbh

      They really need to embrace Linux and put a shit-ton of money into advertising it. 

  3. That's not even where it began. Remember WinFS, which was supposed to ship with Vista but scrapped soon after it was announced? Not quite.
  4. People always give Google shit for canning projects repeatedly, but how many times has Microsoft tried to revolutionize Windows only to end up scrapping all that work later?
  5. Hot take: Cherry MX Browns are okay. They're not the best switch and by far not the best tactile switch (what is is entirely subjective!) but if you're not sure what to expect then they're okay.
  6. Game looks so crisp now. So clean.
  7. To be fair, you don't really hear a lot about trans men and transmascs compared to trans women and transfemmes. I know multiple trans girls but only a couple trans men, just to put things into perspective.
  8. Programming fun, actually


    Don't think I can get over how I put $135k down the drain for no reason tho

      you see I've been trying to get a job in that around here for years but nowhere will hire me, because I need experience (this includes if the job says it will give me that experience, putting me in an endless loop of "you need experience to gain experience")


      plus a lot of things about me changed since I started my degree and a lot of manual labor is inaccessible to me, so I think a career path change to software engineering is necessary for me

      ah ok so not necessarily the jobs aren't there, but the path isn't well laid. I'm working for a major ISP where I'm at so it might be a bit easier for me to move up through the team here than just having the degree and searching. If you wanna move to NC, we got openings over here XD It seems a lot of tech fields are moving from degrees to certs and exp. I feel like you're gonna have to basically intern and do a lot of networking in the coming years to easily get a job in tech

      Thanks for the offer, but neither my boyfriend nor I want to relocate out of Massachusetts. At least, not for now anyway.

    4. Yummychickenblue


      yeah if you want to be competitive out of school you gotta bust your ass for internships

  9. might fuck around and switch my career path to software engineering because WOW there are zero network engineering jobs now!


    And WOW it took me WAY TOO LONG to realize I fucked myself by going down that path!

  10. It's being returned. Directed my mom towards the Xbox Series S|X controller instead.
  11. Xbox controller I got for my birthday has a sticky right analogue stick. Disappointing.
  12. Change of plans, second butcher block isn't gonna be put up until next week

  13. Gonna have some exciting things for the setup thread soon :3
