Something went wrong getting the Visual Studio Achievements
many here started at the beginning - which for discussion we shall say - was a dos ibm pc. (dr halo, dot matrix, bw screen, floppy (literally) discs.
is that the start no - but in general - that WAS the start (of all this)
Zerox - then mac - then windows
Long story short - nothing has changed. everything has changed.
This is because our interface - allowed us to advance - without making us change things every 4 months. Cycles took a long time - we got new programs - and the os/ui evolved.
My point / question is only - If i were new ceo - the first thing i would do is stop alienating my customers - of 20 to 30 years (with still 30 to 40 years left in them!) and re-assuring them - EVERYTHING will work forever. Every UI from XP on is supported / available indefinitely.
There will be NO facebook style - oh look everything's changed - tough for you. - suprises
Everyone WANTS the future. but no one wants it shoved up their _ _ _
But if i was - ceo - there would be nothing stopping me from releasing a NEW thing - totally different - with a different name - and sell it along side windows (same code base)
SOME older people might love it and switch - many will go with - what has already been proven to be a GREAT UI
Point is - dont screw up COKE. Make new energy water, "squirt" customize beverage...cool! ...
If its good - and the kiddies like it - it will GROW its own lifeline (like win has)
just dont do it to COKE (WINDOWS)!
edit - Q: 30 year UI strains should be:
a) allowed to continue and evolve
b) changed at will / replaced
hey i just heard ms is going to release windows 9! but they are also going to release windows Metro - a new take on everything.. hmmm ... i think ill try out the NEW THING
hey i just heard ms is going to release windows 9! but they are also going to release windows Metro - a new take on everything.. hmmm ... i think ill stick with what i LIKE
there was not one thing in that vid i could recognise as windows
this is - five years away correct?
so - i guess everything in the windows we've all been using for ... 20 years is ALL WRONG
so i guess this is an extention of metro? you know from the windows that people hate and arnt buying?
had i - attemped - such a video - it would have shown how the things we currently use - might evolve - you know - sort of like - what your doing now - ISNT A WASTE OF TIME
this is just a marketing bullsh__t fluff piece done for the ballmer era of MS ( = Mis Steps)
* oh its bonds whatever
many of these ideas floating around the company are "moon shots." But he also believes that many of them will be successful and position the company for a future his competitors don't yet appear to be planning for.
..and no the silly ms 2019 video doesnt count
that is the stupidest thing ive ever seen
what planet are these people from?
people from 30 to 60 currently - use windows - and all its metaphors - none of which are present in this
5 years away huh?
man ms is in deeper trouble that i thought
edit - stop making these inane videos and fix windows - or create something USEABLE
so above shows:
- a customized metro desktop - with weather, a user background photo ( to 2/3rds ) chosen metro tiles (favorites)
- same - but after clicking arrow - they are covered by metro sidebar.
<ms person> so he's taken our whole new UI and stuck it in a sidebar?
<me> YES. the desktop wins.
*disclaimer... if you want you can keep phone and surface UIs - AS THEY ARE. because on tabs and phones - metro wins
This is to fix the COMPUTER VERSION of win 8. desktop wins!
