Some Random Thoughts
I've been working quite hard lately. This semester is almost over... Still, I've been able to squeeze some free time for checking out what's going on out there. First, MEPIS users are eagerly waiting for the first alpha of MEPIS 12. What KDE will it include? How will it work with Grub 2? Will MEPIS follow Fedora and hand in $99 to Verizon in order to receive its own Microsoft key and boot along Windows 8 without any hassle? Speaking of which, I myself downloaded the Release Preview of Windows 8 and ran it on a virtual machine. I must confess I was deeply impressed by it. It made me remember so many nostalgic, forgotten memories. An image is worth a thousand words: Yes! Windows at its best! :P Now, seriously, I wonder how clueless people will react when they get Metro on their desktops. Will they like it? Microsoft will have to invest quite a few dollars to brainwash those who refused to adopt Vista/7 and still cling to XP... Now on a brighter note, Sony is apparently considering a revolutionary idea that, if materialized, will mean a significant leap forward in the field of video games: advertising that interrupts your games! You must admit it: that's genius at its best! And they still want to patent that?? Surely, they don't want anybody to steal their incredible idea. Can you imagine if Microsoft did it and included it into Windows 8? These are amazing times! We should be thankful for witnessing such marvelous advances!
