codersnotes / A Constructive Look At TempleOS
A cogent, thoughtful look at TempleOS - and a reminder not to dismiss things out of hand because of a few of their characteristics. I'm glad someone's taken the time to do this.

bitquabit - Zombie Operating Systems and ASP.NET MVC
"And that is why, in 2009, when developing in Microsoft .NET 3.5 for ASP.NET MVC 1.0 on a Windows 7 system, you cannot include /com\d(\..*)?, /lpt\d(\..*)?, /con(\..*)?, /aux(\..*)?, /prn(\..*)?, or /nul(\..*)? in any of your routes." Madness.

Epic Android bug interprets your typing as system commands - Engadget
"It turns out that G1 firmware revisions RC29 and earlier literally interpret everything you type as command-line operations, so if you happen across a legit command, it's going to get executed." Now that's what I call a show-stopper. Wow.

MSI: Wind Coming to Major Retailer, New Models Coming Soon
"Our internal research has shown that the return of netbooks is higher than regular notebooks, but the main cause of that is Linux. People would love to pay $299 or $399 but they don’t know what they get until they open the box. They start playing around with Linux and start realizing that it’s not what they are used to. They don’t want to spend time to learn it so they bring it back to the store. The return rate is at least four times higher for Linux netbooks than Windows XP netbooks." That's interesting.
