One more vote for qemu but I doubt if there is any way with qemu and ubuntu.

Honestly, you don't need crappy windows. I used OSX and Linux and they don't show performance issues like windows. Not even windows 7 solved performance issue problem. More you use windows, less usable it becomes, after you add more data, reg entries and stuff.
I personally haven't seen this since I moved away from Win9x. The registry is pretty efficient, definitely a lot more efficient than re-parsing text files all the time smiley - the only problems I've seen have been caused by really badly written 3rd party software, and the cause hasn't been "too much data in the registry", it's been "really broken data" (which just coincidentally happened to be located in the registry).
I did found problems, especially on Win XP and Vista. I had plenty of things broken e.g. TCP/IP reg fix that is available for both XP and vista when net crashes to reg corruption of the entries, I am sure you are aware of it. I can dig out few more reg edit fixes out there, in fact I had one bunch saved as file when I used XP Pro SP2 to use them after fresh installation.  I don't have this on Windows 7 because those problems are pretty much solved on 7 but with windows XP SP 2 that problem is still possible to replicate. I don't know how you guys are saying that after Windows 9x, system is much stable in terms of reg performance because it's not for me.

Those who are using Visual studio knows Why I am saying this, because microsoft's own programs make the system unusable.I've been running every single version (not every edition, of course!) and service pack of Visual Studio from 6 to 2010 SP1, and will soon be installing 2012. I've even been using VS on Win9x. While the first VS.NET version was pretty crappy and unstable, I've never had VS affect my system stability, and never heard of stories like that from friends or co-workers.
I used the Pro edition upto 2010 and after 2010 I used selective VS for web development. Prior to that almost every VS edition used to interfere with the ,NET framework which I updated and patched beyond default VS bundle. e.g. ,NET 3 and onwards. I had debugger closing my programs (this includes treedb, cintanotes and few other programs) bugging every single application and opening debugger for them. Never had this problem on your side? I wonder how you turned off debugger after VS installation to keep it from interfering with other applications and default .NET framework.

On the other hand, OSX based on unix is perfectly fine. Doesn't break or gets crashed with official softwares and upgrades.Most of the developers at my current job are on OSX laptops. A bunch of them started cursing some months ago after installing whatever-cat-named-update because their systems got bogged down (disk paging, beach ball icon, and sometime systems so unresponsive they had to hardboot them) - seems like Apple messed up the memory manager, majorly. Not something you'll see if you're just drinking caffè latte and not using your shiny laptop for facebook and hipstagram - but definitely if you're actually using the machine. And should I mention the funny instances where the battery expands somewhat (natural thing to do because of heat), messing up the touchpad? Or the various data-loss incidents there's been in Finder?Sure, there's some nice things about OSX, and the build quality on some macbooks is better than a lot of non-OSX PCs. But there's plenty of problems as well, and plenty of funny security holes as well :-)
I don't know which part of my post people are picking up to imply "no security holes on osx". I am just comparing it with windows and on that comparison I had very few complaints on OS X in terms of patching (explained above) and the official updates, where you know how good windows performs.

Demonoid has few uploaders who used to keep tracking link and when people used to download from these type of uploaders, they used to get notice from the ISP. I remember comment from one of the seeder with this problem. I guess it was some old off the shelf documentary which was uploaded and shared. And now demonoid operators are behind the bars.

I am tired of reboot and the sequel movies that are in the multiplex these days. I was checking some of the oldies - "The shining", "2001" and "Clockwork Orange". I wonder why directors don't come out with some good movies like these.

@ mahesh2k & tuxman - Umm...could you two maybe start you own thread and take it over there if its going to continue? People are trying to have a conversation here.

I am done with him. I don't mind if all my posts in this thread are removed. I have no plans on continuing with him at all and you can read my posts to get the hint of that. I am not chasing people in every thread with flamebait, nuf said. Thanks to mouser or whoever moderator deleted the last reply from Tuxman. I didn't posted after my last post and I wasn't planning on replying on his posts after that too, but still I appreciate stopping the attack fest by deleting his reply. I don't understand @40hz, why you made this post to take the thread back to that discussion. Ignoring usually works. I did the same. I would appreciate if mods delete both this and your quoted reply, so discussion goes back on topic.

Less attacking and more answering my questions ("Why?") would be good for the forum peace too, pal.

As I said, I am entitled to my opinion and I am not obliged to answer your question. You can continue with your attacks.

Right: just your observation. Live with it.

I am living with it actually. So are you going to stop attacking me and others on every linux thread for our opinion with your so-called FACTS and BSD lurve? That would be good for DC's forum peace.

mahesh2k tried, I asked why, he called me a troll.

Because you are. You never explained yourself about your views, you pushed your observation. You attacked others with calling them fanboys when you came out same trolling fanboyish excuses in almost every thread.  You just made attacks on people and presented so called FACTS which are mere observation. All of your so-called facts are just your observation. Live with it. Just like rest of us have our own regarding other OS. If it bites you so much to read others views and get hurt with assumption that others are evangelizing or fanboying about it, better not read their views. You are doing no good by attacking others. Yes, you are attacking others. If you can't see it then then that's your problem.

This is the reason I wanted ignore button.

I don't hate Linux.

Spending time on every linux thread posting anti-linux commentary with SO called BSD lurve and Windows FACTS isn't hatred. Oops, I took bait.

Mistakes ? *nods*  cheesy

I am done. Keep playing.

Bullshit. That urban myth is not true anymore since... uhm..
Am I supposed to reply to flamebaits? I mean give me one good reason why I should respond to your bigotry towards linux or lurve for windows that comes out because you hate linux and lurve BSD?

Wish mouser had ignore option on forum.

why I would need Windows or OSX?

On the other hand, OSX based on unix is perfectly fine. Doesn't break or gets crashed with official softwares and upgrades. Linux is always better option but commercial apps for windows are not yet in for linux. So you have either OSX or windows option in some cases. Rest of the hatred bigotry for any OS should be ignored.

I am spending a lot of time on diaspora and found that people who don't like US getting in the way of project funding. They are discussing other ways of raising the funds like - liberty reserve, bitcoin and few other payment processors.

If anyone has kept up with current trends in development, you know that the "open web" is a complete joke.


True. This is the reason I always check the license of the library before using it. If it's not GPL, MIT or Mozilla or Apache, it's going to be something fishy.

Agree on apps being webpages. App stores are overflowing with the apps for websites. I wonder how come people are not just using RSS readers instead. Most of the apps made by news or content websites offer nothing more than that.

and I don't quite think Apple has that locked, not yet.

Closed hardware. Closed software. Patent P###y company  and Only thing unlocked about them is their preaching of open web standards.

Reminds me of Fight-club's dialogue it was something like - "people spend their life working and ending up buying things they don't need". Catch here is that apple offering people glitter stuff. And linux or insert any other open source free stuff comes across as an alternative. Low cost. Less headache. Freedom comes with these alternatives that apple and windows don't give it to you. The point about linux or open source is not to replace the mainstream brands but to offer people the same experience without them having to cut leg and arm for it. Linux does just that. It's not some brands property to use linux to replace apple and windows. It is made to offer people freedom. Those who love freedom, know how to get it. Those who love walled garden, they'll pay for it.

And ubuntu being a closed ecosystem is another joke or maybe linux hatred for the sake of it. :p

I don't pay attention to such moan lisa rants. I personally found no bitter experience on linux for 6 months of full switching. I can't imagine my time with OSX and Windows for 6 months without suckin at all. OSx and Win are crap for me, that's all. :p

Then you rule.
I 50% gave up on Linux because I can only retain tech details for like 3-6 months, maybe a year if I am lucky, and my last company never used them so it became one too many projects to keep in my feeble head. :/

The reason switch was simple is because I stopped paying attention to desktop app development (which is hard for many windows developers) and focused on web development. As you know linux and apple has lots of tools and support and community documentation for web development, it becomes easy on that front. Also stopped hopping for desktop apps like I used to do on windows. Instead of consuming I have taken direction towards producing in web development. I am taking work specifically in web development niche. I have less apps on ubuntu setup and that is why I am doing fine with unity as well.

Perhaps you want to read something like this (Atheism and Mass Murder)*conservepedia when you refer to dangerous.As for delusion, unfortunately Richard Dawkins at the end of his life will discover to his eternal horror how deluded he really was.

Conservepedia and typical death-bed threat delusion?

The same comment applies to those who believe similarly.
Divine threat or something?

There is no other divinely inspired book.

So in layman terms that particle or organism farts oxygen and intakes something else? if nothing else it could be used for the underwater diving and also for terraforming or say in space.
