    Dude, that bar on top is huge! Probably pretty handy if you're using a touchscreen though.

    Why would you put Nvidia graphics in a server? Also, that security hole in the Nvidia driver is a direct result of it being closed source.

    Its to keep the most important elements noticeable, Not that you would understand that.

    Promedia carbon cluster ? Platform as a service ? etc etc etc

    Right its a graphics driver that handles privileges not the os

    Yeah screw being able to manage an entire remote desktop services deployment from the server manager what we really need is to go back to the eighty's with the vt100 terminal :point:

    No screw that we should do what cisco did lets have a botched java+flash gui that only runs on windows (provided you disable all browser security and use outdated java and flash versions)

    Thats progress motherfuckers!

    Still its a shame they didnt incorporate all the roles into the server manager you still need to use an external mmc for CA,DHCP & DNS

    Ahh the VT100 :D I was thinking XTerm's but thanks for the memories.

    Fucking Cisco's GUI is a joke. Half the time the faggot thing fucks up the config & you have to reprogramme from the console anyway.

    So yes, a badly coded driver can cause privilege escalation security holes as happened to be the case in the SMB driver a year or so ago.

    Eh, I'll just wait for a new version of Windows that doesn't cater to smartphonefags.
    (Or if that doesn't happen fuck I'm switching to Linux)

    Except the ipv6 attack that windows is vulnerale to only requires you be on the same local network as the target, and it breaks all windows boxes on the target iirc. So I can plug my computer in / connect to a wireless network of some ipv6 enabled windows machines and proceed to send a few packets that will cause windows to shit itself.

    The funny thing is that a comparable driver escalation security hole you were blaming on Linux, seems to be in Windows too.

    Also, I doubt that TMG is going to be all that useful in stopping the local scenario.

    IT'S A FUCKING TABLET UI ! How do you not see that ? The clunky as shit interface was designed for TOUCHSCREEN devices with limited screen space,not computers. And I'm pretty sure your profile pic is a tablet,or at least some ungodly tablet-laptop hybrid... ugh

    IMO @Beefcake got it right when he called windows 8 "an abortion of a tablet OS"

    And enterprise deployments :rolleyes:

    The funny thing is each and every one of you xpfags will come around in a few years, Just like you did with the ribbon in office... & admin approval mode etc

    Just because they give the next version a different name like Windows 7

    Everyone still hates the ribbon.
    Nobody will come around until they make that abortion UI completely optional.
