Friday Yuk - As I haven't created one in ages

Steffi28
And it's midday and no one else had bothered I thought what the **** I might as well start it off!!

So here's your horoscopes

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You have an inventive mind and are inclined to be progressive. You lie a great deal. On the other hand, you are inclined to be careless and impractical, causing you to make the same mistakes repeatedly. Everyone thinks you are a fucking jerk.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You have a vivid imagination and often think you are being followed by the FBI or CIA. You have minor influence over you friends and people resent you for flaunting your power. You lack confidence and are generally a yellow-bellied coward. Pisces people screw small animals and pick their noses a lot.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You are the pioneer type and hold most people in contempt. You are quick tempered, impatient and scornful of advice. The only time you are nice to people is when you need something, and then you kiss a lot of ***. You are a prick.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You are practical and persistent. You have a dogged determination and work like ****. Most people think you are stubborn and bull-headed. You are nothing but a goddamn Communist.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You are a quick and intelligent thinker. People like you because you are a bisexual. However, you are inclined to expect too much for too little. This means you are a cheap *******. Gemini people are notorious for thriving on incest.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You are sympathetic and understanding to other people's problems. They think you are a sucker. You are always putting things off. That is why you will always be on welfare and won't be worth a ****.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You consider yourself a born leader. Others think you are pushy. Most Leo are bullies. You are vain and cannot tolerate honest criticism. Your arrogance is disgusting. Leo people are thieving bastards and kiss mirrors a lot.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You are the logical type and hate disorder. This nit-picking is sickening to your friends. You are cold and unemotional and often fall asleep while screwing. Virgos make good bus drivers or pimps.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You are the artistic type and have a difficult time with reality. If you are a male, your are probably *****. Chances for employment and monetary gain are nil. Most Libra women are ***-guzzling whores. All Libras die of venereal disease.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You are shrewd in business and cannot be trusted. You shall achieve the pinnacle of success because of your total lack of ethics. You are a perfect son-of-a-*****. Most Scorpios are murdered.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
You are optimistic and enthusiastic. You have a reckless tendency to rely on luck since you have no talent. The majority of Sagittarians are drunks or potheads. People laugh at you a lot because you are always getting fucked.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You are conservative and afraid of taking risks. You are basically a chickenshit. There has never been a Capricorn of any importance. You should kill yourself.

I recently read another post where a dedicated MS fan was going on about how stupid it was to have so many different versions of Linux available. Each giving a different look, and focusing on some different aspect of the O/S.

This got me thinking and I went to look at the MS web site about how many variants of Windows is out at the moment. Over an hour of going through marketing garbage and no single page listed everything available - just a few with some options. I ended up going to a an on-line IT store and seeing how many variants they have for sale, oh boy.

Now I won't really go into the bit about CD vs DVD or 32 bit vs 64 bit, OK. But, check this list out -

Windows Media Center
Windows Server
Windows Vista Home Basic - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Home Basic DSP - full, OEM, upgrade (whatever DSP is)
Windows Vista Home Premium - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Home Premium DSP - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Home Business - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Home Business DSP - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Home Ultimate - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Home Ultimate DSP - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Academic - full, OEM, upgrade
Windows Vista Academic DSP - full, OEM, upgrade
(NB: couldn't establish which variant the academic was based on)

Blimey, that's 32 variants of current Windows (ignoring 32 or 64 bit options), add in XP and you have another dozen.

Then you have to buy one of a dozen variations of MS Office 2007, variations with different application packages with options for academic - oem -upgrade - full.

Prices in Aust dollars varied from $132 to $527 for Vista and $169 to $783 for Office 2007. That's a cost of $301 so $1,310 depending upon which variation set up you get, per machine. And those prices DON'T include any on-going support from MS.

And people complain about the variations in Linux - sheesh, wake up people. And for a few hundred bucks, you can get a lot of long term
support in Linux as well as getting your O/S, office package, and much more. AND you get to install it on all the machines you like.

-----------

On another tack or is that tacky point re your troll Markp - isn't that what cats etc use to identify their territory.

you rolled all the server variants into one. There is,
storage server (available on OEM NAS devices)
Small business server
Web Edition
Standard edition
Enterprise Edition
Datacenter Edition
In addition to that, most of those come in R2 and SP2 varieties. for 6 variants plus 3 more if you count the R2/SP2 as variants.

OK, I'm on a slow dial up - comes from living where the air is breathable. heavy traffic is 6 cars a day along the road down the front of the property. However, after spending over an hour getting lost on the Microsoft web site, trying to find a list of the variations of Windows being sold (I'd seen 30 or 40 marketing web sites and only references to Windows Server, Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, and Ultimate - no technical information either) and getting no where fast, I switched to the on-line shop of an MS partner and had a look at their software page to find the listing I used. Since the web site was aimed at retail home users and small business, I'm not surprised they didn't list all the server options, but hey, they sure had enough variations to try.

With MS you can now get Windows with various grains of sugar added. At least with Linux, the variations do come with noticeable differences.

I can't stand her and I've never met her...

I realize there are 2 sides to everything.
I can hear her side.

"I was a **** before he married me. I am still a ****."
