Hehe, I'm not a programmer
Command console can now be dynamically resized, text selected, and take commands such as ctrl-v without freaking out. That was one of the better discoveries I have found so far.I might give 10 a try, but I don't see anything groundbreaking between it and Windows 7 or 8 so far.
People keep using words like "Groundbreaking"Indeed. But how is that "groundbreaking"?
"Live Tiles" just reminds me of widgets on an Android phone. Around since I first had a Motorola Droid... I hardly see that as "groundbreaking".For as much as people criticize them....Live tiles was a new and innovative(groundbreaking) feature for both Windows Phone and Windows 8.
May I ask where it was ever stated that it was groundbreaking?I hate to use XF as an example but there is really nothing groundbreaking about XF that most other software presently can't do for the most part but the software itself is great and does what it does well and does various tasks better than its competitors.
I see it as a feature that existed on Android(And prior to that Windows Mobile) and was implemented in a creative way to create something Unique and different."Live Tiles" just reminds me of widgets on an Android phone. Around since I first had a Motorola Droid... I hardly see that as "groundbreaking".
What Xenforo?May I ask where it was ever stated that it was groundbreaking?
I see that brought up all the time, but I cannot recall anyone actually saying it.
And I've been involved in plenty of your posts/drama/tantrums about my complaints and opinions about a software I use to fully understand your opinion as wellI've read plenty of your posts/drama/tantrums to fully understand your opinion. No worries on that one.
Enjoy your Friday.
Windows 10 (WindowsNT 6.4) is still Vista (WindowsNT 6.0)I believe that every single digit number will make people remember Windows 8 (which was a disaster) so that's why they went with 10 instead of 9 as a way to say everyone something like "hey! this is something completely new, it doesn't have anything to do with Windows 8 nor is a continuation of that"
They are. They're currently following the Apple OSX "upgrade" model (free).
OSX is based off of UNIX, free is part of the deal. MS shouldn't follow this model. MS actually have created their own kernel.You have to wonder how they'll keep that up.
LinuxYou know the OS is bad when the biggest features are:
- Multiple desktops
- Copy/Paste support in command prompt
- Reintroduction of features previously removed
Unless I'm missing something, other than the really dumb idea to scale 1 OS across 3 device types, that's it isnt it? I've not seen any other notable features.
I agree!Yup I kinda feel the same, along with the idea that Microsoft is not Apple and they should not be trying to emulate anything they do, product or philosophy (trying to convert desktop users to mobile users by changing the desktop up is a slap in the face no go.).
LOL!It is funny how ALT tab window switching is only now a thing on Windows though, I remember using that functionality on Linux Mint 5.
UNIX wasn't free. OS X is POSIX-compliant but not quite the same as UNIX. Apple developed their own kernel, Darwin/XNU. Parts are based off of BSD, which in-turn is based off of UNIX.OSX is based off of UNIX, free is part of the deal. MS shouldn't follow this model. MS actually have created their own kernel.
OS X having Unix (Darwin) roots has absolutely nothing at all to do with price. Even Windows uses GPL licensed code in it's OS. Many commercial software packages make use of free elements, perfectly legally.OSX is based off of UNIX, free is part of the deal. MS shouldn't follow this model. MS actually have created their own kernel.
