Well I'm not giving any FB login info, and it will not honor my MS login, (though C9 does so easily).
Riddle me this, batman... are they shamelessly grabbing FB account data or is this a login bug?

"Sign in with MS" does nothing.
"Sign in with FB" does something.
There is no place to post bug on their page. This is a MS property, pronounced "social". Oiy vey.
Are they only interested in poaching my FB account? For shame!
I am calling shenanighans on this site. Who cares about it anyway?
The company, called Golden Spike (after the final spike built into the First Transcontinental Railroad), plans to sell each moon mission for about $1.5 billion...
Feed the hungry.
LOL, ofcourse they don't 'cost extra'. They could be manifactured cheaper. But I don't think the PC price would benefit from the added shipping costs. The reason why Apple can outsource, all their products are the same. With a DELL you can select so many different configurations, that the added shipping costs outweigh the benefits of outsourcing.
So you're saying Apple intends to raise their prices for iWhatever by $400 ?
Do you think that's the type of thinking that made Apple into the largest corporation ever?
Lump your +$400 statement into "the sky is falling" mantra that's in your bag of conservative talking points.
Of course it is.
Click on "Windows" there, you get this:
Hm, there is a "Desktop" item, there, you click on it and..
Stll no WPF! But: "Explore the docs about desktop app development ...Check out the Windows Development Reference for in-depth technical information about how to build desktop apps...." you click on it and.. Tada!:
That's the Win32 documentation! So, the prefered way to write desktop applications is Win32 apparently. According to MSDN at least.
I am not saying WPF is EOL, I am sure WPF applications will continue to run for a long time to come.. but Microsoft's attention level to it is barely above their attention to WinForms.
Then you can safely assume that MS is at work morphing WPF to something better. And, like always, it will be backwards compatible as MS is the world leader in that department.
I bet my career on it. Like always. And win.
WinRT is just a Win32 wrapper.. just like VB6.
Not as a Flash replacement on the web, but it gained traction as LOB framework. With MS killing Silverlight, and WPF and WindowsForms being on life support, Microsoft has absolutely no credible LOB story! (or desktop applications story for that matter) That's just insane. And no, WinRT is no answer because 1990s MFC is pure sci fi compared to it.
WPF is on life support? Prove it.
@sysrpl: Win32 is not the future. To opine for VB6 shows your age.
Have you become an old fart who spits the bit of new technologies out? Say it isn't so!
A black hole will continue devouring technologies at MS until the attempt to resurrect Win32 in all of its glory is abandoned.
I'm wired differently. I like changes in technology. They are always improvements. Nothing is perfect so I don't mind having to change horses to reach the next station. It is stimulating to learn. You'll respect yourself in the morning.
Too many folks are OCD about technology. Too many developers spend too much time "getting comfortable" with new technolgies and too often wreck teams by holding out for their favored old technologies instead of learning new technologies -- even when the new technologies have been designed specifically for the system requirements at hand. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. VB6? You're mad, my friend, stove pipe hot mad I say...
