When Ctrl-Click in a Windows VMware Fusion VM does right-click, when you thought you turned that off

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/10

A while ago, I was surprised that in a Windows VM running under VMware Fusion, the Ctrl-Click performed a right click, despite me having changed the configuration:

I was wrong, as I had forgotten I assigned the “Windows 8 Profile” tot hat VM (as it was running Windows 8.1), which had the Secondary Button still mapped to the Control+Primary Button:

Top Open Source Licenses | Black Duck Software

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/10

About a year and a half ago, I came across the pie chart far below.

Luckily, the WayBack machine keeps historic copies of that page, so I could deduct the below table over time indicating the historic popularity of each license.

My deduction so far:

  1. The top 5 has the same ranking, but different percentages
  2. The rise of the MIT license popularity comes almost entirely out of the other top 5 entries
  3. Below the top 5, it’s about percentage points that differ

I wonder how this evolves further over time.

Oh: and I need to improve my graphing skills to show this table in a nice graph better than the one on the right which has rank over time for reach license from 2016 until 2017.

This is the data extracted from the historic WayBack links:

vmware Fusion/Workstation/ – How can you boot from CD? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/10

Basically the boot delay during startup is so short that usually you cannot even choose the boot device.

Solution: edit the .vmx file, then change this value:

bios.bootDelay = "15000"
