    Shove Bill through the Gates into the microwave and pop HIS kernal!

  • Shonkin

    Well, Gates isn’t in media *any more*. Microsoft was a co-owner of the MSNBC TV channel from 1996 to 2005 and co-owner of msnbc.com from 1996 to 2012. Gates retired from Microsoft in 2008. That means, as CEO of Microsoft, he was in media from 1996 to 2008 and his fingerprints were all over them.

    Today we have corporate commies and ChiComs, fascist blackshirts called Antifa, and even Gates, as in Bill Gates.

    Hmmm … kinda reminds of that WWII Stalingrad movie “Enemy At The Gates” which dramatized the Commie snipers against the Nazi snipers, circa 2001.

    I remember when watching that movie I was rooting for no one … there was no dog in that fight I wanted to support nor I could identify with.

        “ So why the legend of Zaitsev versus Konig? Because propaganda is as formidable and useful a weapon as a rifle or tank.”

        Hell … ain’t that the truth?!?

        Whether they were socialists of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party or the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics … socialists of all ilks and stripes need their propaganda … that’s their daily bread and butter; it’s just what they do.

        BTW … I remember early on in that movie wishing to see the main protagonist (Zaitsev) pump a round into the pie-hole of that wormy little Zampolit who was supposedly his “best” friend.

        There have never been any good commies, just as there have never been any good fascists.

        It’s too bad that the Soviets and Nazis couldn’t have just completely destroyed each other through total warfare. I think the rest of the world might have been grateful …

          I respectfully beg to disagree. There are, indeed, good commies and good racists — those who have assumed room temperature.

          • John D. Egbert

            Oops; also fascists . . .

          In another world, the USA would have provided just enough materiel to keep the Soviets in the war.

          Reminds me of the story of the wife beating frontiersman. From the cabin, the wife hears a ruckus. Goes out and sees her husband, armed with a Bowie knife, fighting a large bear. She shouts, “Have at him, husband, Git’em bear,”

    Don’t forget that MicroSlop funded the bullshit lawsuit against IBM and Autozone via has-been Caldera painting themselves as SCO… all done by Orin Hatches shit kid as the lead lawyer.

    • Punta Gorda

      In summary. Funding was provided via Royal Bank of Canada from a PIPE believed to be working on behalf of Paul Allen. M$ big wig.

  • Steveb919

    And the plot thickens.

    I want to believe that Javier is way too intelligent to have based ANYTHING on a Microsoft kernel.

    • WayneM

      Javier might, however, code his own version of kernel.

    Every MS update to Win10 must be viewed with suspicion. The last one installed Skype on my HD and tried (for the umpteenth time) to install Google Chrome and make it my default (in fact only )browser.

    Uninstalling Skype was not an easy or pleasant experience.

    As to why Skype is not a good idea, its “Chat! Chat! Chat!” function is also a data mining app rather like TikTok. Such things are just one more reason I don’t keep financial data, etc. on my computers.

    A Sherman Anti Trust action against Microsoft has been in order for at least the last two decades. Of course, their lawyers have the interesting habit of declaring MS “citizens of the world”, saying that as such they are not bound by petty U.S. law, and walking out.

    More like “Masters of the World”. Robur would probably be jealous.

    Microsoft Windows Feature = BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH
    Gate’s Immunization Goal = BLUE NEEDLE OF DEATH
    Turns out the China Virus does not respond to the Remdesivir drug as well as Gilead claims (14 days to recovery). In a blind test of numerous patients, the placebo was nearly as good and lost by one day of hospitalization, 15 days to recovery!

    Our entire clan has preferred Apple over Microsoft products, ever since 1968 when Apple released the Hey Jude/Revolution single.

    • Punta Gorda

      Diving from the turd into a pike of shit is not a sound strategy.

  • epilitimus

    Chris,
    I know the popular myth is that Gates is a super coder. Actually the guy couldn’t code his way past a paraplegic Kobold dressed in wet tissue paper. Balmer was the coder.

    Gate’s claim to fame was selling IBM a crippled version of CP/M. He got all the credit because he was the one paying the PR guys.

    This is why I run Linux

  • JavaMan

    One more for linux… Why use M$ when there’s linux available? Javier should know better

  • Punta Gorda

    Supreme Court voted unanimously to uphold the electoral College. Electors MUST vote in accordance with the votes that selected them.

  • ottersmith

    Linux. Preferably on hardware not descendants of the 8086. It should be possible, now, to put an entire Cray 1 with full memory and peripheral processors onto a single chip; and purge the curse. I/O and power would be problems (are they ever not?)

  • JTC

    “Code.”

    Man what a one-word mouthful of commentary on every fucking thing going on in the world right now, and ‘puter stuff ain’t even at the top of the list.

  • All of these things, Linux v Microsoft v Apple v WTF, Are beyond my ached and corrupted internal software. I’ll admit to not having the first fucking clue. I just post. If there;s a problem with that, oh well.

  • Pamela

    Just watch out for the vaccines
