what's their endgame? who will stop them?
there is no end game. FLOSS, by nature, does not permit such a thing. and VS Code is FLOSS. so is .NET Core and probably a bunch of other shit in the future.
MS has simply come to the realization that while vendor lock-in may work on users, it does NOT work on developers, and the only way for their technology to propagate is for them to pay ball.
why is this browser so fucking perfect
i have a pentium 4
not even tf2 works on it
not even photoshop or any editing program works on it
i also have a nvidia geforce 210
should i kill myself?
>MSN will never come back
What did 4chan mean by this?
Why is Plasma 5 still so broken? What the fuck is wrong with the developers?
GTA V - VHQ + FXAA @ 1080p with 1080Ti
7700k = 137FPS
7800x = 102FPS
INTEL ARE FUCKED THIS GENERATION
Why must almost every piece of technology have an annoying as fuck bright blue LED on it for no reason?
and they say Chrome is the botnet

Control Panel, thanks windows 10 police, you're doing a fine job.
>You can click the start button and type "Con", and it generally will be the first selection.
I don't agree with the change but it's not significant enough to matter.

Hi /g/, I'm usually not on this board but I have a question you might be able to answer / discuss: The german goverment recently (and covertly) passed a new set of laws that allows "online searching of computers" for a broad range of acts considered criminal. The catalog of crimes were this is allowed is very vague, basically allowing it for any case were something is "highly suspicious". The idea is that they find a way to introduce a remote forensic software viá infecting a download on the fly and from that point on they can read out every activity on the computer, make screenshots, read the files, log keystrokes etc. They now praise this as the new way to basically crack down on anyone committing anything criminal in the digital world and they pretend they already have the means to do it as described.
From my point of view - and to my knowledge - this is just complete bullshit. Afaik this is just not technically possible unless you assume there is a super hacker central at the FBI that has technology we don't know of, OR if you assume less-than-zero-day exploits are given out by software developers like candy, OR if someone breaks in your house and infects the computer manually. All of this seems extremely unlikely to me.
Or to say it more clear: Unless you are basically planing the next 9/11 or are the leader of ISIS / a high ranked politician of a superpower etc. I'm pretty fucking sure noone will invest the money and effort required to even create the possibility to MAYBE find a way to do something like this. And even then it seems unlikely, since IF this tech WOULD exist they would have used it in the past and found a lot of shit on big personalities. Nothing like this ever happened to my knowledge.
So did my government went full retard on this? Imho they did.
All of the points above of course assume the user has an up to date OS, uses a firewall, a virus / malware scanner and is not a complete retard opening random email attachments e.g., you get it.
*unless you can intercept and manipulate internet traffic at ISP level..... oh, right they already do this.
*unless you can push "updates" to the users software.... oh, right they can do this, too.
*unless are a country that is known for putting spyware in operating systems or have information exchange contracts with one that does.... oh, right this is also a thing.
*unless you can just pay (gag-order) developers to put spycrap in the software they make... aw, you get already, maybe?

Too young to remember Stasi? They were so obsessive they took samples of clothes for the scents and smells of people.
If you had a $50,000 budget what system would you build and what would you use it for?
