Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

People just start new threads. Which other people respond to. And around we go. I am trying to not be one of the people who respond any more. I succeed more often than I fail, but there's room for improvement. The funny thing about all trolls, they don’t seem to know they are trolls. Both sides of ...

Re: NiaD X

Sadly, I won't be able to join in on the NiaD fun this year as it's scheduled over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. I'll be rather busy smoking a turkey and eating pumpkin pie with the in-laws while they're visiting. Though in an alternate reality where I DIDN'T get along with my in-laws, NiaD wo...

Thank you, Roger. The Interstellar pirate dolphin genre is underutilised.

Re: VMWare fusion vs Parallels vs Boot Camp.

Jaysen and brookter are gentlemen and scholars. I'm not sure bookter wants to be in any group that includes me. That has been known to lower ones credibility significantly. Also, most gentlemen and ALL scholars may be filing a libel suite until you retract that statement to exclude me. :P So for an...

Re: NiaD X

On the interstellar pirate dolphin front... have you settled on a the region of space time? If we want to make it earth, the Barbary era of piracy is pretty dang cool. Dolphins could be the "unseen forces" that drive the piracy ecosystem providing all kinds of "evil overlord" fun...

Re: VMWare fusion vs Parallels vs Boot Camp.

See subheading “What’s New” in v12 release notes: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Fusion/12/rn/VMware-Fusion-12-Release-Notes.html Interesting! That would have been a viable alternative for $0. Fusion is a solid product. The only real downside could be less helpful to the non-technonerd. By that ...

You seem to limit the audience to "people". Which I can not be certain includes... me. Should you choose to allow the potential non-person to enter I would enjoy being added to the list. Are we finally getting piratical dolphins on a rum bender chasing welders with unmanicured posteriors t...

Re: VMWare fusion vs Parallels vs Boot Camp.

(I don't have windows on this laptop, so the screenshots are for a FreeBSD VM I have, but the process should be the same.) they are exactly the same.

Re: VMWare fusion vs Parallels vs Boot Camp.

1. Start the win10 VM 2. Switch focus to the Mac to select the Mac menu 3. I believe it is in the MACHINE menu. If you have the ability to see a larger screen and you can just mouse out of the VM window and click on Mac icons, then you may have been lucky and had the tools automatically installed. H...

Re: VMWare fusion vs Parallels vs Boot Camp.

Don't over think VirtualBox. There are many full install descriptions on line, but here is the "Jaysen remembers it this way" list that should get you up an running. You may need to check menu names as I've not had need of VBox on my new Air yet. 1. Download 2. Run installer 3. Reboot 4. s...

Re: VMWare fusion vs Parallels vs Boot Camp.

Just run virtual box. 1. More options for VM OS support due to wider adoption. 2. Uninstall much cleaner than Parallels 3.

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Xerox Alto... 1972. It is the foundation of modern user interfaces. OS-X, all Linux variants, and windows are based on Alto concepts. 1973 also saw the x-net protocol developed to support alto. X-net was foundational to a little thing know as TCP/IP. Then there’s the mouse to navigate Alto. Also the...
