"But mah sexism!"

While the studies sample size is too small to say anything conclusive, all they've done is reaffirmed general trends from people who actually bothered to study workplace discrimination. Generally, Women are not discriminated against.

When it comes to Windows 10 privacy, don't trust amateur analysts submitted by Ghetto_Shitlord to technology

Holy fuck the shilling is real. His last 12 articles are about Windows 10, and he's written TWENTY FIVE books about Windows. He also doesn't claim any particular education.

EDIT: Also of note: My buddy who graduated with a networking major and has been working in the industry for about 5~ years says the bit that allegedly makes no sense makes perfect sense to him. So it's just a lie on every count. RIP.
Also 2100 HTTPS connections on an otherwise idle box is "not a small fucking amount".

Not one person could have predicted this outcome. Except for the people being called racists and bigots, and the people who thought you were actually going to, y'know, enforce the laws of your own country.

OpenOffice and LibreOffice didn't exist at that point. Those came out about 5 years laterish (IIRC Ribbon was introduced in MS Office 2007, and LibreOffice's first stable build was in 2011-2012ish. OpenOffice came after this, because LibreOffice was the result of Oracle bleeding the original dev team for after they acquired it, so they had to rebuild).

EDIT: Okay, it seems I need to clarify. I'm well aware that existed at the time but it's not the same thing as OpenOffice, because they named the new Fork of OpenOffice - The fork is distinct from the base.)

OpenOffice and are two definitively different things - was created by Sun Microsystems off of Star Office, and was then acquired by Apache (Edit: Through Oracle). Most of the devs that were working on left for the company that made LibreOffice, forcing Apache to scrap OOo, hire a new team and make Apache OpenOffice. They're not the same thing (EDIT: Stipulation here, Apache Open Office was built off of the ruins of OOo, and therefore Star Office. Your graphic postulates that they used Star Office 9 as well, and I don't see a reason why that couldn't, or wouldn't be true). Note how the path is not one continuous line in the graphic you linked. There's a reason for that. The builds of Star Office and OOo were definitively worse than the MS Office suite as a whole in 2007 - That is to say, if you pull in all of the functional pieces (Excel, Powerpoint, etc.) Star Office and OOo were strictly worse, and they didn't really become competitive until Apache Open Office and LibreOffice. OOo didn't really see a huge amount of funding until Apache got their hands on it in 2012. Despite creating Java, Sun wasn't exactly one of the industry giants (I Mean, the entire company got bought out for under $50 million USD in 2009.) and they had their hands full just sorta supporting Java. Apache made bigger improvements on the platform in the two years they had it than in the entire time Sun had it, basically (Keeping in mind that it was forked off of Star Office, and that Star Office and were iterative off of each other).

So no, what I said was correct - OpenOffice, as distinct from, didn't exist at that point, and the stuff that did exist wasn't anywhere near as good as what MS Office of the time had to offer (Mostly because it was just a bunch of open source code slowly being incrementally improved on concurrently). As for Go-oo, those were initially patches for a better OOo, and didn't fully fork off until 2007 (according to the timeline you linked me. I don't know when that first stable fork build was, but sounds about right). Thus, it still suffered from being a poorer office productivity platform than MS Office 2007, despite MS Office 2007 being objectively bad.
