Windows 10: US Department of Defense Commits Upgrade 4 Million Seats to Windows 10
For official sources that type of security is a bit more essential for verification of just who has access as cyber security is a foremost sought item at this time more so now then seen in the past! Facial rec along with finger print id which can be faked! is an added step to see that happen and prevent hacking, leaks, etc. Facial imaging as a security measure isn't something generally found shared on the web to begin with but stored locally on the local closed network that it would be used for.
Nah. MS have them all in their pocketses - no contest.

The facial recognition wouldn't be online but in person! That's a big difference since trying to fake actual facial structures unlike wearing a mask is where physical dimensions as well proportions for each detail would have to be 100% exact! That would require either taking physical measurements in person or getting into the secured data base where that information is held and where a breach would be easy to go unnoticed. Of course it all depends on what machine that is used on as well as who owns it!
For tight knit security tough(gov or other)! For someone's home pc? unfortunately "gravy"! unless well resourced and heavily invested in protections like a wealthy business person. 3rd modeling has advanced over the years where that would be a concern. I might pass for Kris Kristopherson but no Clooney!
Wait, 2016 was going to be the real year of Linux!
I couldn't help it.
Line a who??? "can't tell you!" Of course never forget the "Dreaded 10 app has struck again!" scenario where people don't look close enough before clicking on things and then wonder who and what 10 some... har har how now found a way onto their systems. daaa... i only clicked one button! and Surprise Surprise 10 is here to stay! At least that is the way the bloggers illustrate things as far as the initial complaints went.
Linux has it own issues but can't say much more that that on here though. I still like Linux and use Linux but still will return to windows 7. Windows still has stuff that I use.
I was making a joke because we hear it every year from Linux fanatics yet not much changes.
I actually use Linux too. I have a Macbook Pro that I triple boot with OS X, W10, and Linux Mint. Also my Dell laptop and desktops are all dual boot W10/Mint17.
In my experience, here and other Windows and Mac forums people are accepting of other people's choice and don't bash Linux. I wish the Linux community would do the same towards Apple and Microsoft. I visit and post on the Linux Mint forum and most members are very hostile towards anything Windows. You'd think Microsoft killed their parents or something.
"around here we do not discuss Mickey Mac or Mini MSose! don't you under derail stand?!" And then you go onto a Windows place and discuss Linux on VM, Linux live data recovery. Windows on Wine, and you name it as far as using multiple OSs and Windows on Mac machines, etc. and then the Linux crowds turn out to tight knit closed loop types wanting nothing to do with Windows topics.
That's more of a defensive reaction since those sites tend to see smaller audiences and there's a competition going on. People are too easily drawn away from Linux since they may sampling the other OS only on Windows machines if not live media. You run into typically with hard core Linux only type users.
Yet when you look in both communities and not mentioning the Fruit company bunch but with the Windows crowd you still have the die hard each new version and then those who frown on change and may only look shortly at the lastest. And then you have those that simply move on from one to the next comparing notes with those who dual and multiple OSs in general.
Here I am not so diehard while having intentionally skipped over 8 and 8.1 while waiting a few versions for MS to the act together with the dual platform OS after seeing Windows trashed in 8! Others may have missed 8 and gone direct to 8.1. And then you have some real die hards still trying to run XP or Vista who frowned on 7 and 8 and 8.1 and possibly now are being forced to look at 10.
In comparison to the open source crown there you see those die hards who will rave on about one "Flavor of the Month" while others may be running several. Then you have the Open Suse competing with the ubuntu competing with the Debian crowds, etc. Those in all crowds who elect to try running dual boots or multi-OSing are those who see past the barriers. The Windows crowds don't worry since they know the Windows users will be back. The same applies to the Fruit company squad while those Linux die hards worry about losing Linux users to the other guys's OSs!
Some people hate PPA which I disagree with. If it is not listed, that want you to do compiling instead of using a PPA if you can't do a backport. There afraid PPAs could get comprised. What is odd about not using a PPA, is that where the source comes from & it still could get comprised. Compiling doesn't always work or you can't find the needed tools for that distro. I hate compiling with a passion, the main reason it hard to find a distro that has the tools already installed for compiling and works on my system. Depending on the software it could take a long time to compile.
Meet AVA, An App That Hacks Employees To Improve Security
Just received the latest (as of Dec 16, 2015) updates for win 10. I would like to thank Microsoft for the following:
*Waiting 10 minutes for win 10 start screen, not knowing what is/has happened.
*Changing my default settings
I have Comodo's free protection installed. Since I installed Windows 10, I keep getting a periodic pop-up message at the lower right of my screen telling me that both Comodo Defense + and Windows Defender are turned off. When I go to the Security...
I thought I'd be brave and try to install Total Defense's (paid) anti-virus program that works under Windows 8.1
It installed okay although did give me a warning about "some incompatability issues". On re-boot however the PC just "hung", my guess...
