  • In my country we have about 40% hydroelectric plant. They are reliable. Water mills and tide might be something that started the industry.

    Keep in mind that many big cites are located near the ocean. Many benefits from water.

    Today many companies throw as much money as they can at renewables. They are simply cheaper but limited the amount of opportunities. Example Google could not find enough clean energy to cover their own footprint. Google have a lot of many that they don’t know what to do and want to be climate neutral for their data centers. It is much faster to put in new energy hungry graphic cards the getting a new power source running.






  • I think many is afraid. It is unknown OS. No one likes change. Many thinks IT is hard. especially elder people. However:

    • There is to few places to even buy a computer with Linux on it.
    • No ads on TV or similar, nowhere to test, not a single .exe file to run and test it out
    • Works differently - need to relearn.

    A kid does not have any problem with the above. This is why Steam Deck is selling. It is just fun to test something new with your friends and see what all the buttons do. Seen as cool. Any guess where this is going when they get adult?





  • It works for a while but they will lose market share over time. The home users are mostly not locked in to anything. It is just them that might use their pc at home for work(they should use their work laptop for that). Nowadays most things are webbased. Console/Steamdeck/Android/Chromebooks exists. Microsoft even made Visual Studio Code for any OS so coders can use any OS. The need for Windows is shrinking as people development alternative software for other platforms. It just take time.

    I am just against what they are allowed to do with this money. How many airplanes full with fules can they blow up just for fun? Want to find fastest way to blow it up. Is it fair that they can ignore the climate impact completely? Just do what ever bad stuff they want to.




  • You are right, most don’t need it. Yet they still have the wizard guide, and with several new GUI questions implemented. So they are maintaining the setup wizard - just does not want to improve it. I am sure Microsoft have the money to improve on it and make more users happy(read not leaving Windows).

    Windows have come to a point where they don’t need to improve much more. So they only focus on the stuff that might bring in extra money instead(ads and data harvesting). This will be their downfall if it does not align with what the users want. It will be interesting to see how the deal with ARM - problem to bring legacy programs. Yes, one day we will move to ARM on all new computers as they are just so much better. A good opportunity to rethink a lot and for Microsoft lose its big walls around Windows. Easier for competitors to come in.

    Linux have also improved due to users always want a friendly GUI. And the users have more power to actually make a difference due to the nature of being open source. Automated installs here are still needed. A few sell OEM with Linux.

    Just look at Apple, how big market share they have despite Microsoft have existed for so many years. 15% https://gs.statcounter.com/os-market-share/desktop/worldwide The competition have started.

    They don’t know. For computers it is easy, but for Phones - this is really hard. But be glad that the masses don’t know about it. They actually watch all ads and bring in the money, so us educated can leech with no ads.
