  • Do you find the Win 10 build 10122 "Hoth" theme to your liking?

    Without thick chrome. It is hard to resize modern apps. Useless.

    @NoelCarboni:

    Nice screenshot. I was thinking a red button to make it colorful as before. Now, based on your screenshot, I noticed I can see active window easily because the Red pops.

    I think MS is trying to make active window hidden. Because the active windows is only useful for keyboard users. The mouse user isn't too concerned. Mostly it is for closing the nasty popup messages.

    Anyway, I don't like thin border as the core. Those talks is not important to me when I have a hard time resizing the thin borders.

  • Windows 10 is the final Windows

    Makes sense.  For a while I've been thinking the next version might be called...

    ...wait for it...

    "Window"  :)

    In all seriousness, I sure hope Microsoft realizes how much pressure this puts on Windows Update to be right.  Really, really right.

    I am pretty sure it will be broken. You complaints on this forum. This forum will dismiss you. Microsoft will dismiss you. And after 12 months debating the same issue on this thread, Microsoft will finally collect enough telemetry and sales figure and decided you are correct all along. Then, it will take them at least 6 months to fix it.

    In short, it will take them a year to acknowledge the problem and another 6 months to fix it. Prepare to make repeated complaints for 18 months on here.

    I just think the close button should be Red.

  • Lets talk about USB3 TypeC

    TypeC is cylindrical, it feels flimsy and imprecise to attach, Apple's iPhone 6 connector is more usable and user friendly as a port 




    ???? Cylindrical???? Huuuuuhhhh????

    Do you think MS will use this on their new phone and Surface this year? I am aching to get one. And do you think their this year phone and Surface will do facial recognition login? Since it is supported by Win10? I think they should do it and boast about it as sales stunts. I think those sales stunt really works.

  • Dumb phones

    That's UK. In USA, lower achievers would spend more time debating with teacher during class if there isn't enough distractions away from class materials.

  • Windows 8 is finally paying off for Microsoft!

    @Bass:

    It is called generation gap. We are old.

    When I was younger I played a few first person shooters (Doom, Duke Nukem 3D), but that was a waste of time and, frankly, I found it got old.  Recently I played Plants vs. Zombies for a while on our iPad.  Cute, but again a real waste of time.

    I use computer systems to do engineering.  THAT is what I find rewarding and fun.

    Now I see Microsoft is turning toward gaming being a more significant part of the Windows experience...  And turning away from Windows being the heart of a serious general purpose computing system.  I find that troublesome.

    I realize that gaming finances a lot of development (look at what it's done for GPUs), and it's great that people have fun with their computers - more power to them - but does it have to DOMINATE?  Does the inclusion of fun and games (hey, past versions came with Solitaire, etc.) have to eclipse the real work aspects?

    Call me a boring business user, or whatever.  Windows just isn't going very quickly toward the bright high tech "Star Trek" future we could foresee some decades ago, in which high tech facilitates our being smarter and able to do more and more with information.  All it seems to be able to do today is distract us.

    It seems to be just turning into all commercials without the TV program.

    Hmmmmm...... You do realize Windows 95 was Bill Gates HOME OS. And Win10 is under Win95 family tree, not Windows 2000 etc.

    And I will repeat, Windows 95 and Bill Gates dream is PC Personal Computing. If it is not personal, it fails. And MS has been losing track of what Personal Computing really means.

    What about Channel9 app on XboxOne?
