You know, not everything about Windows is bad. I like the Registry, and the Win32 API is great. And uhh... yeah... that's pretty much it. :drgn_flat:

Detail part of brick building showing window and what looks like an informal mid-20th century renovation of a much older building. 

4 pane square window with hinges on top, with wooden beam frames, in brick wall.  Space to right and left of window framing is filled in with concrete, into which are three old glass Coca-Cola bottles on each side, facing upwards in vertical rows.

I really dislike forced logoff of my email and office suite when in the middle of transcribing a meeting. Why does MS allow this? Why not make it a true service that is turned off/on when there is an update rather than so tightly integrate the stuff into the O/S and applications they need to be restarted for a minor update?

One weird thing about calling a product "Recall" is what happens when it's faulty or turns out to be ill thought out and needs to be recalled?
Will there be a Recall recall?
Sadly I still have to use Windows for a few things but I continue to turn off all widgets, all AI, all Edge, configure it to show file extensions, configure it to change browser to Firefox, install Git Bash, and now I guess also disable Recall. Uninstall all the vendor spyware etc.
Trouble with Windows is all the configuration you have to do instead of just running your computer. It's like you have to be an expert who enjoys running Windows as a hobby instead of just getting on with work.

Also the Polish military: being fully dependent on a closed source operating system owned by an US company that can take control of its computers at any time and that probably is stealing military secrets to train LLMs.

Także polskie wojsko: całkowicie uzależnia się od zamkniętego systemu operacyjnego, należącego do korporacji ze Stanów Zjednoczonych, która w każdej chwili może przejąć nad nim kontrolę, i prawdopodobnie wykrada tajemnice wojskowe, żeby trenować LLM-y.

The most recent #Django releases, 5.0.5 and 4.2.12 are broken. Most likely they were done on #Windows, and that obviously is sufficient to break stuff.
[UPDATE: 5.0.6 and 4.2.13 are good. Thanks a lot!]
So far, we've noticed the following issues:
1. The directory is named lowercase `django-X.Y.Z` instead of capital-case `Django-X.Y.Z` (the filename remains capital-case).
2. All files have CRLF line endings instead of LF.
3. All files that should have the executable bit, have lost it.
As a result, the releases don't pass their own tests.
I hope to report this upstream, but their Trac is down now. So you can't even download the releases right now.
