Desktop might not be dead but it is pissing blood and prone to bouts of memory loss and uncontrollable shaking. M$ core business is server and has been for decades. I'm pretty sure most of the last decade or so OS releases have been trolling people who insist on still buying desktops

Except Server 2012 also ditched the start menu and forces sysadmins to use that awful metro UI. Microsoft has their heads so far up their asses they can see Microsoft Bob.

But this IS brilliant. Every odd-numbered version of Windows sucks, and this is the most effective way to avoid that problem.

I thought it was the other way around. 7 seems good. 8 seems crap.

yes, this.

but then, skipping to 10 would make no sense at all.

so far it is in "let everything grow unrestrained to see what i have to work with" mode. preliminary signs indicate the potential fairly full beard. Off the top of my head, I'm thinking this:

And be creative! No points for just posting silly pictures from an image search.

However, I would argue that there are exactly zero cognitive tasks machines have taken over for us.

The only one I can think of is memorization. I know plenty of people, myself included, who don't bother to remember anything anymore because it's just a Google search away.

Yeah, as a general rule, for every task machines simplify, there are 3 we as a species forget how to do.

Life runs in fractals, and it all seems to change color and shape at the same time, like a kaleidoscope. Right now, civilization is on a trip that's all about wasting as much as possible as fast as possible, because pretty soon everything's gonna run out and there won't be anything left to waste. It's the responsible thing to do.

I'd add my recent experience with the good people of Southwest Airlines, but I don't want to butt in on a good series.

Has anyone made a corporatese generator yet?

Yeah like 30+ years ago.

His name is V3x.

Don't make me leverage your asset units.

This sort of bollocks writes itself when you realize that all they're doing is contorting language to avoid negative terms and connotations.
They also do it to avoid committing to anything. I asked a manager a yes/no question.
I got a 15 minute spiel about levering opportunities that had nothing to do with the question. I asked again, he got visibly flustered and gave the same waffle. Eventually I just had to walk away.

At this juncture our primary focus is to effectively pin down the definitions of our goals so we are better able to gain a widespread acceptance of our mission.

That was great!  You have restored my faith in the ability of doublespeak and jargon to cover all ills and make em sound pretty.

How about

"Go fuck yourself. I told you to tell that vendor not to arrive until after the morning deliveries are done at 11:30. Now I'm blocked into the lot by her van and the boss takes his sweet time schmoozing the pretty ones over lunch."

Now would be an opportune time for you to engage in a self-actualizing autocoital exercise. As we discussed at our previous meeting, the 3rd-party vendor should have been instructed to postpone his arrival until after the already established time of morning deliveries. As a result of this oversight, the parking lot arrangement has negatively impacted my personal conveyance's range of momentum, and we will have to operate under these conditions while the Director bolsters company relations with prospective secretaries over lunch.

This is great!  :lulz:

"I just met this chick in a bar last night. She dragged me back to her place, snorted blow off my forehead, popped a viagra in my mouth, and nearly killed me with the sexual. While I was recovering and she was in the john her cell started ringing. I glanced at it. Name said PaPa Sugarcane, but the number was the Director's office number. I double checked to be sure and got the fuck out! He wasn't in today."

(I know it's a lot, and I have complete faith in your documented ability to proforma motivate in tandem with swift rising, asymetrical market demands! Your achievement is my goal.)
At a privately-operated imbibement center overnight I established networking ties with a representative of the opposite gender department. After exchanging contact information and resumes, she proceeded to consume a first-order tropane alkaloid from my glabella, administered a dose of sildenafil orally, and then we actualized an anatomical transfer give and take session which nearly resulted in complete biological incapacitance. Afterward as the distinguished representative was consuming lavatory services and I was recharging for further research, I noticed her cell phone ringing. Upon closer inspection the Caller ID alluded to one "PaPa Sugarcane." Curiously, however, the telephone number displayed matched that of the Director's office phone. After confirming this actuality, I made the executive decision that it would be best to immediately separate myself from the situation and did so. Today, the Director does not appear to be in the office.

Thank you Vex, a meeting I've got on Monday should be quite entertaining.
Report back with your progress! :lulz:

Oh, I'll probably need:

"I am going to have you beaten by goons"

"Large goons"

"With hammers"


Market realities might dictate that we invest in muscle-based policy enforcement.
The Contractors brought on board to help with this process are physically imposing.
They will also be bringing to the team their considerable expertise in osteo-breakdown tools.
