How nice. That is good to hear. But what is your unpopular opinion? Maybe you loved Carly Fiorina? I have a good friend who was at Bell Labs during its Lucent period, and he just spits venom at the mere mention of her name.
I hope both Carly Fiorini and Mark Hurd go to hell. They are subhuman and abused people and screwed up thousands of lives to gratify their egos and pocketbooks.How nice. That is good to hear.

AND:I'm all for nuclear. It irks me when people say noo-kya-nur. That's not political.
Why would someone put backup generators ON THE BEACH?!!! TMI, Chernobyl. You thing someone would learn something.
Why didn't the USPS capitalize on being an ISP? The dial-up modem decimated their industry over night. That's not political. And my pastor agrees.
I can't really see semi's dragging a trailer full of batteries down the highway to power their rigs. Get your doubles endorsement guys. Maybe you can get lumper pay while you wait for it to charge.
Biodiesel. Great idea. In Orlando. Disney puts waste oil containers at your restaurant and auto service centers.
They make and run their vehicles on biodiesel that they make there. Is that unpopular? Eat more wings!
I got a lot of "yeah buts" from my friend. He burns firewood. A triaxle of logs is dropped off in his back yard.
Gas for the chainsaw. Oil for it too. Cut the logs to length......they hit the dirt. And tack on chains and sharpening too.
Change the oil in the splitter. Gas for it. Pick up the cut chunks and split them. Pick them up and spilt them into quarters. Then pick the pieces up, load them in the wagon. Go stack 'em up. Do it all over again. After you mow the yard, dodge rain storms.
During the winter you have to trudge outside. Bundle up. Go grab an armload, two. You picked up that wood HOW many times? Fourty-'leven?
Hey Teddy? Ever think of getting a pellet stove? At first. Unpopular subject. "What ya' gonna' do when you're 70"?
My 'droid out of the pocket. Calculator opened up. What's a triaxle cost, delivered? How much gas and oil do ya think you used? How much time did it take to do? You have to clean the flue how many times? That means you have to shut the stove down, right? What about if you and the wifey wants to go away shopping for the day?
Let's go to the pellet stove place. Just ride with me. Spin one up, put a few in the cooler.
Ted has a pellet stove now. Once unpopular, not political, and not so religious now as when he dropped a log on his toe or ran the saw into a staple from eons ago.
You got 'ole Seth all fired up.
Oh. The Flatlanders. That's what we call the hunters from the city. They were sleazin' into my dad's wood stack at night and helping themselves. 5-6 chunks and tracks across the snow.
Very unpopular with him.
So he grabs a very special chunk of wood. Cores one end and drills it deep. Packs that baby with black powder. Crafted a matching plug and planted it in. And stripped the bark to make it obvious to him. SOMEONE had a very unpopular day. That piece of wood came up missing. That's about the time I got him a tree cam. His wood pile didn't mysteriously dwindle at night any more. Flatlanders!
Whew. That was fun. Thanks for the invite. Hate me yet?
HP computers come with no more bloatware than Dell, Acer and the others. Like all manufactures, desktops/laptops in their business lines come with almost nothing besides the preloaded crap from Microsoft. Or just do what I do and throw the factory drive away and pop in your own or reformat the thing. Using bootable USB media, on an NVMe drive Windows 10 and 11 take less than 5 minutes to install.HP computers full of bloatware.
When I got my MSEE in 1977, I chose HP because they made stuff nobody else could make. When I left HP in 2001 They only sold stuff nobody else would bother with.I was around for the introduction of windows 3.1 which was the start of 4 hour support calls in the 1990s and everything being incompatible. Apple was the first company to bring any order to the average computer user experience (not IT Tech). Even today there are many millions that wouldnt have working computers int their homes if not for Apple. If I died, my wife would have to marry a Geek Squad member. I'll stick with Apple for the best computer experience and best customer service of any company in the world
If you can't find the software you need to do what you want and end up using a text editor or a spreadsheet for everything, are you really computing?As opposed to the Windows hardware compatibility cluster f**k that led to a wholesale support nightmare?
We are getting off topic. The Apple platform is elegant and works well. Many hate the price, but I don't care about price. I don't care if their system is proprietary.If you can't find the software you need to do what you want and end up using a text editor or a spreadsheet for everything, are you really computing?
I had a coworker who figured out how to do everything with a casio pocket computer but it wasn't pretty when they had to share information with anyone else. The same is perhaps still true with iPhone contact lists.
