  • Will the Internet continue to exist for decades to come?

    Only renew for 10 years??? Never hears of that.

  • Microsoft laying off workers, drats...

    C9 is already under staffed. They already don't have enough people fixing the broken forum.

  • MS want to ship a new version of Windows like ... every week ?

    Now, we need someone who doesn't need slow telemetry to prove their obvious mistakes and then, tell this new team fix it.

    Hope they can put on the Win Icon faster instead of a year.

    Mojang was earning a decent amount of profit each year, $129m in 2013. If all he wanted was money, my guess is he could have continued to build the company and earned from his investment in it. I guess he didn't want to do that.


    He officially stated he didn't like the pressure. He said if his new game become popular, he will kill it.

    @TexasToast:
    I would be totally fine by that if I am this rich.

    It is causing gamers unrest actually. Because that much of money would be very useful to create first party studios for exclusive games. Thus, MS doesn't have to buy exclusive rights from 3rd party.

  • One Windows rumor is feeling not much a rumor anymore.

    With such crazy deal, one starts to wonder what's their true intention. MS stop calling Windows Phone. The old rumor of Windows with phone capability. A game that works better with tablet screen and unofficially described the purchase of developer is for Mobile push. I don't think we will see Windows with phone capabilities in Windows 9, but, it appears Windows 10 will be the single OS for desktop, tablet, and phone.

    Rumor of course.

    Thanks, the video is very helpful. I like what I see so far. The app opens up in Normal or Maximized windowed mode with taskbar present all the time, just like regular Windows. Exactly what I wanted. I am glad they finally acknowledge the business users and existing use cases that are familiarized by every Windows users.

    And they still have full screen mode, which I think is good. Seems like they down play the full screen mode though. Like it has to use the "..." menu. I wish they can just include the full screen button somewhere in the title. Although I can't think of a better way either. Placing it next to the close button will be confusing with maximize.

    Anyway, I am guessing they don't have Metro Snap? I mean, it doesn't make much sense to have Areo Snap and Metro Snap, especially the apps are encouraged to be in Windowed mode. Although, Metro Snap is needed for tablet environment. Metro Snap is probably still there.

    For whatever it is worth, I think it is an OS that is more business friendly. And something my brother would get into. And something I can shove it to my dad once everyone saying it is good and force my dad to agree.

    From the look of it, this is what Windows 8 should have been. The next thing I really want to see, is how business can run their own internal app store server, to publish their own apps or deal with licensing with external apps. I think that is the logical step to make metro an attractive platform for business.
