    Admire got a reaction from LAwLz in Virgin Media rolls out porn filtering system   
    Yeah, because there cannot possibly be anything between 1. Lets put filters on all computers that children have access to and 2. Handing out porn to 5 year olds.
     
    NOBODY is talking about introducing children to "perverse" sexuality. I certaintly didn't suggest such a thing.
     
    But the problem is that people are SO afraid of having an uncomfortable conversation with a child so they try to shield them from everything in order for them not to be in that situation.
     
    This is the same shit that happens in a million other situations. "My CHIIILD saw two men kissing on the street.....HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO EXPLAIN THAT TO HIM!?!?!?!"
     
    Again...Nobody is saying anything about showing porn to kids. We are however saying that filters won't work and it certaintly won't solve whatever curiosity started those searches in the first place.
     
     
    I think its a far bigger problem that kids are even going to those sites because its the only way they can get any knowledge because they are afraid to ask their parents.

    Which how many people did that you? 1-2 guy who made a statement that SLIGHTLY voiced opposition(Drama much?)
     
    But people aren't even allowed to have a debate and even a slighly different viewpoint?
     
     
    But nooooo! We all have to devolve into standing with our hands over our mouths yelling "BUT......THINK OF THE CHIIIIIIIILLLLLLDREN!?!?!?!?!"
     

     
     
    Maybe we would get more balanced children if we instead of putting filters on their computers actually had a freaking talk to them instead? Parents almost lie as much to their children as the children attempts to lie to their parents.
     
     
     
    You know where they watch the most porn? In the most religious places on earth. Why? BECAUSE ITS RARE and THEREFORE EXCITING!

    Admire reacted to Misanthrope in Windows 8 sold over 200 million licenses.   
    Yes and it's stable as fuck, so much so that the better part of the web and the internet works on it. Although distros like Ubuntu (not Lubuntu) and Linux Mint have made efforts to make it more user friendly it's still for what you'd call power users, tinkerers, etc. The point here isn't that you should use Linux, the point is that if you truly liked a customizable OS you'd install Arch Linux or other barebones Linux distro.
    So follow me here, by your rather colorful expressions on Linux I take it you consider it to be too barebones, too difficult for the average user. With me so far? Good. Now when you buy and use an OS like Windows or Apple (a consumer oriented one, not Windows server of course) it should be easy to use, easy to figure out and come with a pleasant user interface most people can grasp within minutes. If you spend more than 20 years training people how to use your OS and then you completely ditch the most fundamental pieces of it to accommodate users on a radically different interface like touch screens, then obviously people will not enjoy that since you shouldn't have fucking railroad them into a crappy user interface just to bring everything on an "ecosystem". 
    I'll illustrate this even further: You likely either own or seen an android phone right? It's improved a lot and by now you know your way around it or have seen others use it, things make sense you touch things, you swipe things, etc. Now take that Android phone and use one of the dongles to hook it to an HDTV along with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I guarantee that it will feel stupid, unintuitive, ridiculous.
    And if even none of that is enough to get through to you, perhaps you should have also paid attention to the fact that I just personally find it plain ugly. It is a fucking eyesore for me to loose most of my detail to bland, featureless huge fucking squares all across my nice screen. On a phone or a tablet, the thing is so small I would have trouble and have to squint to see all that detail but the reverse is true when you blow up that interface to a screen: it looks like ass. That's however my 100% personal and subjective opinion

    There's a tremendous difference between bugs, performance issues, lack of drivers, things that you couldn't foresee and things that are intentionally obnoxious and annoying by design. It's like the difference between a fun yet tragically buggy game with show stopping issues and the newest Dungeon Keeper on android: one might not work due to incompetence, the other is designed to annoy the living fuck out of you.

    Admire got a reaction from Scionyde in Gates Spends Entire First Day Back In Office Trying To Install Windows 8.1?? (*update: It is a fake news)   
    So now im complaning am I?
     
    Should we remember how this started?
     

    So you start a discussion by dissing everybody who doesn't agree with you and then when you get pushback you attempt to once again insult people with sentences like "Boils down to how open they are to taking things into their own hands" and "Feel free to continue complaining".

     
    If you don't get why the transition from W7 to W8 is fundamentally different from Xp to W7, then you are simply not paying attention. W8 changes the way to use windows fundamentally for the first time in 20 years.....
     
    Your constant condescending says more about you than it does about me or "a group of people". I didn't start this...YOU did! 
     
    But your attitude is very similar to microsoft, and its that attitude that forced microsoft to provide software support for XP until this year. The customers are just some annoying people who don't want to take things into their own hands (Whatever that means......Nice way of calling me lazy btw;-))
     
     
    I wonder how you would feel if this was a computer game that had similar issues. Well, if there's a problem with the game, then you can always use a mod!

    I never said that Mantle IS awesome.....I said that it LOOKS awesome.
    ..The idea behind mantle is awesome. Btw....I have only owned Nvidia cards for the last 7-8 years so your suggestion that im a AMD fanboy, is really off.
     
    What about quoting the rest of my post where I ranted against fanboys on both sides and instead wait and see? You are deliberately trying to twist my words into this constant AMD vs. NVIDIA fanbattle.
