... and this is why I weep for the future. Because I know people like the OP actually think they know what they're doing.
I would suggest learning to ask "would you like fries with that" but I suspect he'd be convinced he was cutting the potatoes when pressing the 'fries' button on the register.
Spot on, spot on
let's all jump on op and make him feel like **** everybody! it's gonna rule!!
seriously OP i am interested in finding out if you can directly attach the keyboard and get different results. for science.
Okay, one, if you call yourself a programmer and give yourself a big self-congratulatory pat on the back without doing the least bit of research? Hey guess what. You're not a programmer - you're an impediment to progress. But obviously we should give people a tissue and tell them it's totally okay to completely lack basic knowledge and they shouldn't feel bad for not doing or being capable of doing their job
Two, that is not how VMware USB passthrough works on Workstation. It's a different issue on ESXi. But come the hell on. I'm primarily an Enterprise Unix guy and even I understand the basics of Windows HAL which guarantees that there is always something in the way of directly accessing any device. And no, nested ESXi is not any more valid. And that's before you factor in the hacks required to do OS X on Workstation which does involve tampering with things that affect pass-through.
So what? I'm supposed to bend over backwards and say "oh, I'm sorry I made you cry. It's okay to pat yourself on the back for being ignorant. Of course I'm obligated to hold your hand because learning is too hard for you." I'm supposed to congratulate someone for wasting the time of people who put in the minimum expected effort to learn basics? And I'm supposed to cater
to this crap because obviously they're special people?
Yeah. No. I sincerely hope every last one of them gets chased the hell out of technology forever; I could care less where they land or even if they land. People like this have no business working in technology, much less developing software.
