Windows 7: Linus Torvalds gives Windows 7 a big thumbs up

Linus Torvalds gives Windows 7 a big thumbs up

Quote:
Microsoft tried to torpedo the success of the Japan Linux Symposium by launching their Windows 7 product that same day. They even had setup a big promotion booth across the street from the conference center.

During a break, we decided to make some fun of Microsoft and dragged Linus over there. When we arrived there, Linus was sold immediately on the product as you can see in the picture. At least that's what the sales guy thought. He obviously had no idea who he was dealing with. But in the end Linus surprisingly did not buy a copy. Wise man!

Would have been funnier if either Bill Gates or Steve Ballmer showed up...

There would have been Mice, Keyboards, and OS boxes flying everywhere...

The only reason he gives a thumbs up is because those are all pirated copies of Windows 7. After all, it is Japan.

Bill and Linus would probably have an animated discussion on various technical topics over lunch. They are both reasonable people even if their philosophies are different.

Now Ballmer and Stallman, that would be a deathmatch... or maybe a matter/anti-matter implostion on contact.

Thumbs up for ASUS
I just installed a P8H77i mobo in one of those Lian Li train cases, not much room to work and time consuming to swap out MB's. Anyway, my MB turns out to have a fault, when removed from AC power it does not retain the BIOS. Changed batteries, check the clear cmos jumper, all OK. So I call ASUS...

Where is thumbs.db or thumbnails in external hard drive for windows 7?

Thumbs.db files
I'm not sure exactly where to post this, so I figure it is a performance issue so I would try it here. For some reason my desktop and in my folders I am starting to show thumbs.db files where I never did before. I am able to get rid of them over time, but it is really a pain in the neck to do it....

Do I really need all of those thumbs.db files? .
