  5. Bought an iPad recently thinking it would be the best thing after sliced bread....what a mistake, I don't understand anything about its functioning and Apple boast about "intuitive functioning".....yeah right, the damn thing is useless as I cannot do 1 tenth of the things I do on windows....result: I only use it to send emails and play games.....what a waste of $$$$$$

      2 legged mule? I don't even want to know what that means!

  8. Interesting idea. As with addons, language packs should be properly maintained and updated.
  9. What language packs would the installer display? There are tons out there and looking at my languages, some are either incomplete, contain awful orthography or even come straight out of google translate. I think there should be "official" language packs that were properly translated by people who currently speak the language and the installer could point to those. If you're looking to re-do the language section by having new language packs submitted, I volunteer to do French and Italian, admin, shop side, installer, whatever is needed, I can also do different versions such as "formal" vs. "non-formal". Whichever way I'll make sure the texts are complete and error free.
  10. IP Address

    The VAT rules depend on what country you're running your business from so that is what everybody needs to check before collecting IP's which in itself can go against the privacy laws, again depending on what country the business is located and what country the buyer is located. For example in Switzerland you need to make over CHF 100,000 revenue annually (approx USD 102,000) in order to be VAT registered therefore collect and pay VAT. Still speaking of my country, when selling abroad one cannot collect Swiss VAT on a product, even digital, that one is exporting, because the buyer will pay HIS country's VAT upon importing the merchandise. All this can get complicated as it differs from one country to another. Needless to say, my modest business is not VAT registered :lol: and to be honest I'm not unhappy about it.

      @Biancoblu - I had a client come to me with a Win 8 startup issue. His Asus laptop didn't have a recovery partition and he didn't have any back-up disks. A local computer shop wanted to charge him $240 bucks to reinstall a copy of Win 8. I installed Linux Mint 17 for $35 and he started doing the happy dance.

      @MrPhil - Roger that on Debian. I switched to Linux a couple of years ago and never looked back.

      @wlsnoops the problem with linux is that many programs won't work on it, or is it just me? I'm afraid people like me are stuck with windows or mac, but I prefer windows by far. I paid under $50 to have windows 8.1 reinstalled, not bad.

    4. MrPhil

      MrPhil

      If a binary (compiled-linked) program is made for Windows, it won't work on Linux or Mac, period. And vice-versa. An "emulator" (WINE, Cygnus, etc. may work for you here). Even interpreted scripts (Perl, Python, Java, etc.) may be written with dependencies on one OS or even a given window manager within an OS. There's always some flavor of Virtual Machine to switch among programs on the fly, or multiboot to run one OS at a time.

  12. Today on the bus a guy tells me: Excuse me is it Thursday or Friday today? I say: Thursday. He says: Oh because I noticed you wear 2 Freitag bags.....Have you ever heard a more stupid chat up line??

      yeah maybe I should try ;)

  13. Thanks for both of your replies and I hope I haven't offended anyone, if I did, apologies. To clarify, I'm just asking questions that will surely seem stupid to devs but that are important to me, given that I am a shop owner, not a coder. I have never complained about osC moving forward, neither have I ever wanted "to pull back the shit that wanted to come out their ass" as @@wHiTeHaT so colourfully put it and I have always been the one to open my wallet whenever the need arose, which is not everybody's case. @@burt thanks for what you added to your post when you edited it, this way I feel a little less inadequate
  14. As a shop owner I have a few worries....please forgive the long post and all the questions.... I understand your wanting to move onto working on a version that meets today's standards and I'm all in favour of that, but in practical terms though this might risk to be an issue both for existing and new users regarding the lack of compatible addons. Unless users (existing and new) are willing to pay to have addons coded/recoded/upgraded, and we know this is not the case for the majority of users, then they will have to wait a long time before having access to the same variety of free addons that are available today. You say that v2.3 will still be alive along with the 7,500 addons, that's fine, so are you planning to have that PLUS v2.4 with its own addons as/when they become available? Or will v2.4 only be a vanilla install and users will have to take care of their own addons by having them custom coded? What happens to a user that's on 2.3 and wants to migrate to 2.4 keeping the addons? Is it feasible to convert it all to fit 2.4? Finally, what difference will there be between v2.4 and v3.0? I'm trying to understand if you're planning for osC to have 3 main branches: v2.3, v2.4, v3
