I just wanted to write a quick note to say how impressed I am with Microsoft’s moves toward fostering a more neutral, pragmatic, productive, ergonomic programming environment for people to work with. It’s only been half a day, of course! 😀 …Of my using these tools, but I didn’t know they existed and were so well integrated until today. I’m pretty impressed so far, and relieved. 🙂 It’s nice to see some things going the right way.
I will happily discard Google Chrome and its lovely ecosystem in the event that end-user-level content-filtering is rendered significantly inconvenient or worse. 😀 It is truly absurd to accept that software that I run on my machine might be crippled in order to prevent me from blocking content I do not wish to receive; in other words the browser will force you to receive content whether you like it or not. Doesn’t sound to me to be very free, open, happy, good, independent, democratic, or whatever else we pretend to care about. 🙂
Thank you, Mozilla/Firefox/GNU(Linux)/EFF/Netherlands/The Hague/Star Trek/Costa Rica! 🙂
F#@$ you, Wall Street/Viacom/Time-Warner/Comcast/Dow/Dupont/Johnson&Johnson/Disney/Sony/Facebook
It’s 2018. 🙂 Why am I unable to address an e-mail to an extant group of recipients from my Google Contacts? Am I missing something? How do they market themselves to organizations without features like these? It seems fundamental or at least something inevitable whose time should have come long ago. 🤔
