WorldWide Telescope is Here



The website for Microsoft's WorldWide Telescope, mentioned here at Neatorama a couple of months ago, went live yesterday.


The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a Web 2.0 visualization software environment that enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope—bringing together imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world for a seamless exploration of the universe.

These things are so stupid - you download them, they take up a billion gigabytes, and you only use it a few times.

This should be a website, not a program...

It's a real shame Jerse doesn't understand the concept
of "uninstall". It can easily be done via the control panel but if one is really smart they can use Windows Explorer and get into the folder that contains the unwanted program. A lot of times there is a uninstall file available there too.

What I'd like to know is what kind of hard drive does he have to hold a billion GB. Now that would really be impressive. Not to mention how many years it must take to DL such large files. Lastly I'm curious why one would DL such a huge file when they thought it was stupid in the first place.

(Yes I have DLed a LOT of junk programs but I usually have and idea of what it should do first. If it doesn't meet my expectations I uninstall it and move on.)

I wouldn't use software, hardware, or anything else from the convicted Monopoly known as Microsoft who has a long history of screwing others. Screw them and their mafia like tactics, anyone who neglects their history of crimes and sucks down whatever shit they have to offer is just another apathetic, lazy, fat slob who wouldn't know what philosophy or morals meant if they were slapped upside the head with them. Attack me all you want to defend your ego, I don't care, you can search the web yourself for facts, I am not in the wrong, but you may very well be in your vapid, self-centered attempts to defend your ignorant use of a criminal organization's proprietary software without feeling guilt deep within your being.
