N-as vrea ca site-ul sa se transforme intr-o lupta surda impotriva Microsoft, dar pur si simplu it keeps on happening. Titlul este evaziv, in ton cu problema de care m-am lovit recent, referitoare la licentierile Microsoft. Well, pe scurt, am inceput de ceva vreme incoace sa simt placerea de a folosi soft original, cu licenta si toate cele. Ba mai mult, am ajuns pe sistemul meu sa am chiar cate 2 licente (una de XP Professional si alta de Vista Ultimate), pe langa multe altele. O groaza de bani daca fac un raport la salariul lunar… dar am zis ca e un efort care merita. M-am gandit la developerii care isi varsa sudoarea pe la Microsoft. Well my friends… acum mi s-a pus capacul. Astazi am avut de testat 3 HDD-uri (un Raptor 150GB,¬†un Seagate de 750GB si un WD de 500GB). Mare mi-a fost mirarea cand m-am trezit dupa ceva reboot-uri cum eram anuntat de Mr. Windows ca au fost multe modificari hardware pe instalarea curenta, si ca licenta a expirat. WTF ?!? Tin sa mentionez ca nici macar nu m-am atins de HDD-urile mele de sistem… pur si simplu am adaugat cate unul, cate doua, HDD-uri noi. And for what ?!? I mean, come on Microsoft ! Eu personal o consider o bataie de joc, si de-abia astept sa ma rafuiesc maine cu cineva de la Microsoft. Shame… shame on you Microsoft. Acum, ar trebui sa ma simt prost cand ma gandesc la amicii mei care ma intreaba de ce sunt idiot si dau atatia bani cand ei nu dau un leu si nu le expira niciodata nimic ?!? Well, i kinda do… and i start thinking… Why bother ?

Well, id’s secret game engine just got revealed. In the video demonstration, you can see John Carmack showing off a very nice detailed world, and bragging about¬†over 20GB of textures for just one map. It looks good, but the really good news is that developers are allowed to modify one level/map instantly, without compromising the map or buggin’ it. Good job guys… i can hardly wait for the next game using that engine !

Yep. And this time, the boys from Parallels did it with OpenGL and DirectX support, cross O.S. file and app integration, support for graphics hardware, shared printers, snapshots to store the VM states (even at custom intervals), rollback, and so on. It’s interesting, and makes the Mac boys really happy. Soon, with full Vista Aero flavour. Check on their website for more infos and screens.

Vorbeam mai “deunazi” (mai exact in miezul noptii) de acel calculator nastrusnic. Desi pot sa ma admir ca am reusit sa instalez pana acum cateva sute de calculatoare cu AC97, well, asta le-a intrecut pe toate. Nu stiu daca ati patit asa ceva, dar, zic sa postez aici pt. eternitate, in caz ca it happens again.
