  1. Well, Microsoft has been pushing pretty hard for becoming the main "distro" for Windows programs, and this sort of move would definitely make it easier for them. They wouldn't need to control the kernel at all. Just let someone else do all that hard work, and build on top of it. Shifts blame away from them if the kernel has issues too. As for the backwards compatibility, most of the really hard work has been done with WINE anyways, they just need to step in with a few small pieces of code to make it all come together, then you'll have that as well. It's pure win-win for them, (and their shareholders) and benefits their customers as a side effect. This is the sort of move they can do without losing at all.
  2. That's about what it looked like to me when I first heard of it. I never bothered using it because of that.
  3. Went ahead and tried Mechwarrior Online again. LRMs were nerfed into uselessness, as they require almost as good of aim as lasers to lock, but take longer to lock than it takes for lasers to burn, then you also have to maintain lock as well. (this is bad) Almost everything else is identical to the last time I played, apart from a near doubling of the number of maps, (a good thing) a PSR reset, (another good thing) a new matchmaker that does worse than the old one that sucked, (bad) and a PSR system update that didn't fix ANY of the problems that the old one had. (worse)
  4. Pretty much. It would unify the #1 server OS and the #1 desktop OS, and improve both in a very lucrative way. Makes perfect sense for them to do this. They may lose a lot of control over the base OS, but they save on having to deal with security vulnerability testing, as well as make it easier for everyone that wants to do anything with or to the OS, like custom UIs, or security patches that don't require a reboot of the system.
  5. I think it's because it's pretty clear that Microsoft intends to move over from a standard Windows kernel, to a Linux kernel. That's why 10 is the "last version of Windows", because they plan on moving everything to Linux in a decade or so. Makes sense when you look at it from that point of view doesn't it.
  6. Not really. Not even a nunce. Did you have to look up what a nunce is?
  7. It's been that way since LONG before Reagan. As for left policy, there is a lot of it, just not anywhere near as visible as the right stuff. (and usually as a result of the Constitution)
  8. That is only 3 posts above his.
  9. That would be this post...
  10. Because we hate not knowing everything about everyone else, and being the only "mysterious stranger" left.
