  • Windows 10 Start Screen

    , TexasToast wrote

    Everything looks flat.   Where is the shading and light source?  Where is the border?  Looks like the cover of a 3rd graders crayon coloring book.  Very unprofessional and childish with many cartoon characters and comic book looking icons.   Is Microsoft serious about delivering product to the business world?  Maybe Windows 10 means its for 10 year olds.

    What is it with people and fears that their operating system doesn't look manly enough?

    Also, what is it with people and the idea that late-90's pseudo 3D is adult and professional?

  • Channel 9 officially dead?

    I'm looking at the front page of this site and all I see are episodes of regular shows. I don't see a single thing about Windows 10. With all the talk about openness and engaging with the community during development, none of that conversation seems to involve the place that's all about the conversation where you get to look inside the cockpit.

    Couple things I found cool:

    1.) Continuum - Modern Apps/Start menu change depending on input

    2.) "Windows 10 can natively run apps from remote desktops — not on your own physical PC — and remind you which ones are actually running via the cloud with these little grey bars beneath the relevant icons" - Gizmodo (although, I kind of want a follow up resource for this because it seems a little buzz-wordy)

    3.) Snap Assist - Gizmodo

    4.) Responsive Start Menu

    I hope that continuum thing gets refined and makes it to the final version, because that looks pretty great. They should add a phone mode to it and have it switch to that when it detects a small touch screen and no mouse and keyboard, and then switch back to desktop mode when you hook your phone up to a screen.


    I hadn't heard about the remote apps thing yet. I wonder how that works. Is this a sort of OnLive app streaming type deal?

    Sounds like Windows RT is dead.


    That's what I think. Note that they said that they want to upgrade "the majority of devices out there". That could well be a really roundabout way of saying "we won't upgrade the handful of ARM tablets out there."

    I hope that "it runs on phones and pc's" line is not the usual "it's the same kernel so it's basically the same OS kind of sort of you know" nonsense. If they say it runs on both, I want it to be exactly the same, enable me to hook up a monitor, mouse and keyboard on my phone, and get to work on the desktop. If it doesn't do that, who cares wether it's the same OS?

    This is insanely cool. Who comes up with such * and then has the balls to actually stand in front of crow and tell them "Windows 10". If I had been up on that stage I would have laughed my * of after telling it to the press : "Windows 10". TAKE THAT YOU SUCKERS ;=)

    Brillant! Really brillant. I don't care if it makes any sense. I love it!

    You're right, that post is important enough to post twice. Let me quote it for you so there's even more copies of it.

    I love how they explicitly gave all these reasons why it couldn't be Windows 9 or Windows One, and then just throw Windows 10 out there without any reasoning whatsoever.

  • Windows TH?

    Really lame. What if everybody totally misread the announcement and it's really about lame enterprise management tools?

  • Chromebook Killer?

    $99 hits the spot. At that price I don't even care about what hardware is in it.

    Edit: actually, if this has 1080p HDMI out, that's an instant sale, because that would get me a $99 touch controlled HTPC.

  • Windows TH?

    Is there a direct stream? I'd prefer to avoid vapid blogs like The Verge.
