Microsoft. The Enemy Of Industry?:
Microsoft are laying down laws again concerning their services. Fine. Nothing to do with me. They are their services after all, but
How many industries would benefit from a computer that only does what it is required to do? You see, I see computers as being one thing, but Microsoft as being another item. Totally separate. There were computers long before Microsoft. Not according to Microsoft or the BBC. If you have a computer (I Have Not) they want to control its every move, and thereby your every move.
For example: I would like a computer that just runs software like Cakewalk or Cubase. That’s my need. Others will be different.
I don’t mind using this Library computer/s for this, but the complications created by the need for TV licenses Etc. are too great. Buy a license for a year, and spend the next nine trying to prove you only had it a year for another reason completely. Automatic updates from Microsoft and other software companies are opening the doors of company computers to the theft of industry secrets. It can only be deliberate.
I have to say that the BBC are sticking their oars into the internet and effectively helping the thieves destroy businesses. They sit and complain about industrial hacking, and in the same bulletin they undo their own words by reminding people that they must have a TV license if they own a computer. Where is the logic in that?
T.V., and other media should not be on the internet, unless they accept it is free. It is our internet nothing to do with them. If I wanted TV I’d buy a box thing.
Why can’t I just own a computer that runs the software I want to run, and updates come on a disc or by e-mail type service.
You don’t know what you’re missing by missing Gdicm music for this reason.
One Computer for work. Another for leisure. (And they can do what they damned well like with that one) Should be industry Motto.
