    Maybe it is time that Winnt.dll disappeared form Windows 10 to be replaced by an enhanced Linux kernel.

      I'm in 34:46, and I could hear "it" sooo clearly, but I confirmation as well. So I looked to see what was going on in the mind of the livechat at the moment, and what would know [Disabled for this video]... so yeah.
      Linus I don't believe he can't hear it, only that he pretends very very well.

              Mac Pro's will be assembled in Shenzhen, China. The hardcore professionals won't buy the $6000 Mac Pro, but a more beefier version. It will earn itself back in no time, because for pros time is money. I just hope for the lesser fortunate among us, Apple will make a prosumer and cheaper version of this Mac Pro (with iMac/iMac Pro prices?).

                Linus still made a weak argument about paying that much money for a monitor stand.

                Apple USA prices are insane but not insane enough for Mexico. I compared builds on the Mexican and US Apple websites for the exact same products and I found out that iMac prices are as much as 35% higher in Mexico, and up to around 17% for iMac Pro. I had to stop a couple of times to go vomit.

                  It's almost literally a $6000 cheese grater that just so happens to run MacOS. Interesting. You know, I do wish there were more computer cases out there with that "customized" feel to them, with higher quality materials, with the level of attention to detail that Apple puts in. But it seems to me like, if it's not Lian Li, everyone else is just copying each other and all the rage right now is that stupid "sandwich" style kicked off by the Dan A4. It doesn't really feel like anyone's doing anything unique, except maybe Not From Concentrate. And Lazer3D actually, but they need to make something that will actually take a full size/length GPU.

                      Linus speaks the truth! An iPad Pro is not actually pro. They cost only like 1700$ or something...compare it to an Motion Computing (Now Xplore) tablet...these are like 4000$.

                        Sure, you can make money making Youtube videos talking about a $999 aluminum stand!
                        But you don't actually need to buy the stand for that!
                        What else can a $999 stand bring some profit for you?

                            For Apple lowes price Mac pro machine, they are using the popcorn/soda seller in front of a Cinema, approach.

                            Basicaly you have the following prices:
                            100 gr -> 3$
                            250 gr -> 4$
                            500 gr -> 5$

                            The ultimate goal is to sell only 500 gr popcorns. The other prices are to make you think you are actualy loosing money if you bay them.
                            The lowest prices are real ripoff compared to the 500gr.
                            Well de facto you don't save money, you are buing the most expensive one.

                            Pepole will not buy the lowest one, but they will thinhk the highest end is actualy goog for... I don't know 10000$.
                            For 10000$ working station you can do anything.

                              Apple : "We sell the product at a premuim claiming it is of superior quaility and will last for many years then make it obsoltete in a few years by locking it out of Osx or Ios updates so they have to rebuy if it still works.

                                I think a good example of what Linus was trying to say is this. Think of lawn mowers, you got the push mower, the riding mower, and those fast zero turn mowers. You can cut more lawns faster by buying the more expensive machine hence you can make more money.

                                    Take a couple of computers to Chernobyl ,one with ECC & one without ECC.....
                                    Ultimately the issue... is that not only do you have to "flip a bit", but you have to ensure the bit you flipped, actually HAS a MEANINGFUL outcome in the process needed to "corrupt" or crash the system..

                                    That is to say if you flipped a bit in the video ram.. who gives a fuck....,

                                    but if you flipped a bit & later that bit controlled a jump instruction to turn off the pumps in "Chernobyl"...... then clearly it is far more of an issue.
                                    AS a net result.. "testing" that way means nothing.... he only thing that the manufacturer can do is use probability theory to "guesstimate" the impact....

                                    Which is where people like linus fall down because he does not actually understand the systems & electronics to anything than a surface level.

                                                    Might be a good idea to have one of those “on air” type signs as radios or other similar TV set type signs set up and turned on next to the light/power switches, so that whenever you’re doing wan show or other film work late this doesn’t happen so much as it seems a regular occurrence for the lights to be switched off in the middle of wan show 😂

                                                      it would make sense if the would make 6-8 core cpu because of single score speed for like adobe programs.. but they just make weak 8 core... so eh

                                                          Apple outraged the apple sheeps that want to have everything from Apple because it is from Apple, that at most are in the prosumer level. Real pros will say "999 for monitor stand, well I need real good stand with my thousands dollar monitor that will help me make hundreds of thousands"

                                                            No one will buy the entry level config. Its there to build off, for instance in arch viz you don't need a beast CPU or more than 32GB ram, but you need a butt load of GPUS for rendering, a decent workstation card for modelling and mass storage for files (though OS and applications only require a small boot drive.) In music for instance, you need a beast CPU, as much ram as possible, mass storage, multiple audio cards, but only a basic GPU to drive the monitors. Professionals rarely max out every part of a machine, its customised to perform in certain areas.

Does Windows decide when their OS is going to be updated and the user has to go along for the ride or what? Why tolerate that nonsense?

                                                                                  I build a couple of EKWB Hard tube Custom water loop systems My own it over the top with 2 rad 2 res 1 pump res with i7 8700K and Gtx 1080 Asus formula X board 32 Gb ram including a 32 inch predator g-sync panel and keyboard and mouse of 200 and 750 ssd 12 tb HD space and all the rgb stuff and fans 750i psu stuff like that, total cost was 4800 euro. Only got so expensive because i designed custom acrylic plates for it, laser cutting costs. So that leaves me with 1200 euro to spare.

                                                                                  So I could still Upgrade for 550 euro to i7 9900K 8 core apples to apples. And 480 euro asus formula XI board and trow 220 euro 16 Gb of ram extra in it and have 48Gb of ram. Overclock that to 5,2 or 5.3 Ghz give a nice boost to mem speeds 4200mhz and stay under 70 degree C. all while outperform that mac so hard, its shames Steve Jobs its apple.

                                                                                  Case design apples look like apples they use to have great design with cool colors, but now its just same white box that looks like a LAN party case, or a 3U server on its side with those handles. They used that for years now. The mini was cool that little square 15x15x4 or so that was a good buy 450 euro back then now there bit pricy. It had a lot of power for such a small thing.

                                                                                  Ps Forgot overclock the watercooled GTX 1080 to 2 Ghz and a mem boost 1000hz, sorry there no way it will come even close.
