Lol...;) What a world of humans as Lemmings is being produced...! (The following scenario is fictional but may be too close for comfort, I'm afraid...)--I'm also full of glad tidings and...

@ Kuttyjoe

Conversely, as someone who enjoys configuring & buying his own hardware (as opposed to what an OEM like Apple or Dell prefers to sell me), OS X doesn't come close to meeting...

@Freak77Power

I don't think there's any question that Win10 done right for the desktop will not only boost Windows share from its slight down-tick because of the unfortunate decisions made...

Friday, October 24, 2014 - 10:14

Of course you are right about the future of the desktop...finally (j/k)...;) There's no doubt the company lost focus there for awhile. It is remarkable that some might consider a foray into...

I actually had an update failure the first time for 9860--reverted back to the original 10TP automatically. Error code: 0xC1900101-0x3000D. Turned off Defender real-time and tried again, and...

It would be really interesting to see Apple free-up OS X so it would run on virtually any PC as does Windows (even on a Mac x86 PC.) It would be interesting to see if these emulator companies...

If installing to a desktop, Windows 10TP automatically defaults to the start menu--at least, it did for me (although it is no big deal to enable the menu, it's nice to know that even the TP is...

@Nevada...

Yes, I installed a UEFI upgrade of 8.1-10TP in-place right from the mounted .ISO in an 8.1 boot. Worked flawlessly. Then, just to try out a theory, I did it again, only this...

If you find the text in the the start menu a little small (it doesn't respond to the standard text dpi settings under desktop/right-click/screen resolutions--unless I've missed a setting there),...

Of course it's "desktop-centered"...designed for mouse & keyboard...;) >95% of all the personal computers on the planet are non-touch, so Microsoft suffered some kind of brain aneurism...

Saturday, October 4, 2014 - 21:44

Love the new start menu--which I find I'm a little surprised about--uh, that I like it this much, I mean. I really dig the right-left/click nature of it--very nice and maybe the best start menu...

Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 14:44

The self-configuration routines appear to be really smart... Although my installation of Win10 was to a separate, clean partition, somehow...someway...Win10 knew that I liked my taskbar at the...

Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 07:11

Installed into a separate partition--yes, never asks for it but it is still nice to have it supplied (thinking about Murphy)...;)

So far, looks fabulous! First thing I did was unpin the...

@Peter42

The problem with applications not scaling properly with DPI is entirely the fault of the application--has nothing to do with the OS. Many applications are simply hard-coded to use...

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 17:16

Looks really good so far, imo! Another point to be made that artificially speeding up OS revisions simply to conform to some arbitrary amount of time is a bad, bad idea. If anything, five years...

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 06:07

With eCommerce booming & no end in sight, specialty brick & mortar stores like these seem like a real throwback to pre-Internet retailing. Windows & computer-related products have...

The bottomless fascination some people display with cell phones is remarkable...;) Can you see a review of a 28" computer monitor, for instance, containing the words, "Everything was great until a...

Hear the old joke about the gamma-ray brain-wiping projector that ships in each Mac so that when they crash and reboot, the operator's mind is wiped so that he has no recollection of the event? (...

Friday, September 19, 2014 - 08:47

I'm confident you can still turn your desktop into something pleasing to the eye--it's a shame Microsoft doesn't advertise the fact. These color combinations they are using for show are not only...

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 19:40

Still cannot figure out why Microsoft would raise the price of the 8.1 Pro full DVD *retail* version (32-bit & 64-bit disks included) from the $105.xx my pal bought it for via Amazon just a...

I've got a couple of decades on you, and was close to your age now before you could read (I mean, since you want to play the age/experience card and all of that) and I had a set of...

@oroslak

Laying on a sofa watching a 50" TV 8-10 feet away & using a clumsy controller is not "gaming," imo, it's being a couch potato...;) Ugh. More like sleeping/snoozing, I think...

@MonkeyPaw

The only reason to purchase a 360 these days is if you don't own a gaming PC. There are actually lots of titles available for the PC that aren't available at all for any xBox...

Monday, September 15, 2014 - 10:07

At every i-Product introduction I can recall, Apple always cites "record orders." Yet, through it all the company's market share keeps slipping. Here's the supreme irony: even as Cook & pals...

@Khayman101

Usually I agree that the graphics don't make the game. But in this case, that would be a ridiculous assertion. First of all, what game? Minecraft is a game that packs all of...

@Chrish

Are your kids unaware that Minecraft is (and was first) available for the PC. Your kids have no PC, then? Perhaps you should address that first. They might perchance learn...

I endured the slings and arrows of 13" screens in 1986 with my Amiga 500. Of course, at that time it was 'bestest and biggest and would display 4,096 colors on screen when my Tandy 1000 topped...

Monday, September 15, 2014 - 09:05

Amazingly stupid. Let's see, @ $50M each, that's *50* individual AAA games Microsoft could have produced for the price of this single already-old-hat Lego blocks game for kiddies. Notch took the...

Sunday, September 14, 2014 - 10:30

Hopefully, Microsoft is doing this just to alleviate inventories. I'd hate to think they were paying to have this stuff freshly manufactured. I mean, nothing's quite like cannibalizing your own...

Sunday, September 14, 2014 - 10:26

What I can't understand is why web sites keep publishing screen shots of Win9 betas (or whatever they are) with that butt-ugly Metro desktop...? It seems that not only has Microsoft lost all of...
