    Windows 12

    I use StartAllBack since besides restoring the old task bar it also does a Win7 Start Menu.

    The EU doing the stuff our regulators are too lazy to do

    It sure feels likes a conspiracy some times. A college professor friend of mine was making youtube videos for his classes during the lock downs. He teaches immunology and his class video on mRNA was taken down because he was talking about the positives AND negatives of the technology.

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    I am using dual GPU's of approximately equal performance, an Nvidia GPU for the VM and an AMD GPU for Linux.

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    Maybe I'm lucky but I've had no stability issues at all with my setup. I've been testing with some of my favorite games and so far I can't tell the difference between the gaming on the VM and gaming on a real Win10 install. I'd probably see a difference if I was running a game that used lots...

    2 GPUs. If you're not gaming on the Linux side, you can just use any old compatible GPU you might have laying around. Since I build my own systems I've collected a number of low end GPU's that work just fine for the Linux side.

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    I did the dual boot thing for a few years but recently switch to running Win10 in a VM (QEMU/kvm). I'm using GPU pass through so gaming is a real option in the VM. It's much more convenient than dual booting. I can be gaming on the VM and still have Linux up an running. I'm using 'evdev' so...

    Bill Gates predicts our work meetings will move to metaverse in 2-3 years

    Before I retired at the end of 2019, that's the way it worked for me. My boss didn't care if I worked from home or at work. As long as I met the deadline all was good. I mostly went to work to avoid the distractions at home! :)

    Apple leaks M1 Max Duo, and M1 Ultra

    Personally, I'd be a bit skeptical of the gaming buy numbers for the last couple of years. Cryptomining has really borked the prices for higher end graphics cards. I'm betting it's put a damper on gaming purchases. I know I've not bought a new graphics card due to the drastic price increases...

    Commonwealth Fusion Systems Raises $1.8B, Starts construction on Fusion Reactor

    I did take a gander: https://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-prosecutor-campaign-20180523-story.html Would rather Soros hadn't back these prosecutors and Prop 47.

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    It all depends upon your use case. I dual boot and the majority of the programs I use on a daily basis in linux are the same programs that I use on Windows 10 (jEdit, Thunderbird, Vivaldi, Libre Office, VueScan, g++, etc). The only programs I have that make me keep a Windows partition are...

    Ford and Purdue develop new EV charging cables

    Back in the early 80's I was working on a speed modification for a Philips Laser Disc player. These players used a helium-neon laser so the power supply output was around 20kV. Getting zapped by that was an experience! I could taste my metal fillings, but luckily didn't otherwise hurt myself.
