Windows Phone or Windows RT? Commented on: 1 year ago (July 29, 2013)

I had a debate with a relative who works at Microsoft on what is their plan with Windows RT. I said the Surface with Windows RT was not done right since it wasn't properly tuned for ARM. He...

Silly XP Retirement Party Should be a Wake Instead Commented on: 1 year ago (July 25, 2013)

I still own a XP laptop. I will be impossible for me to upgrade it to Windows 7. My second XP laptop has failed. I suppose most people have XP to run hardware that hasn't failed. Why dump it just...

Microsoft Delivers Third Round of Fixes for Windows 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 23, 2013)

Any new features? 5 weeks until RTM, I would assume.
