Is it supposed to act as a hardware firewall? I'd love to learn more about this.

say "malvare in windows 7 if you not update to windows 10" = Microsoft fear tactics to force change software hardward and so on.


consumerist system so changing pieces of hardware = damage to the environment, global warming and so on.

You also have to consider power consumed. Modern cpu's use less electricity, but give better performance. This is particularly important in systems that run at 100% for hours/days eg I do a lot of 3D rendering.

You could argue that hardware upgrades benefit the environment.

What I try to explain is that not is the tecnology evolution is bad in itself, is the perverse politic of how this tecnology is selling in that way describing that politic is the constant buy and throw of all kind of things from hardward or anything else like televisions whashers, fridges etc.(programmed omniniscence) that this economic system evoce all of us and this is could be a harmfull to our world and for all of us.

Wish we could change the world, but we can change only the little piece around us. And the throwaway economy doesn't take our individual financial circumstances into account. Most people keep a credit balance to keep up with the "latest and greatest" products. I can't throw away my computers till they die. The price of a smart-phone is way beyond my means, so I use a perfectly good flip-phone. No one really needs to change their smart-phone every few years, but the IT industry has convinced them that they need instant gratification and unlimited services.

We've wandered away from the topic at hand.
