Windows 8 File History and the old Backup can't be used at the same time, according to Microsoft.
So as File History is the recommended one, the old Backup/Restore tool is there solely for backup compatible reasons, apparently.
Note, you should be really carefull about value types here, for example, this code get it wrong:
var dict = new Dictionary<int, System.Windows.Point>(); dict = new System.Windows.Point(10, 10); Console.WriteLine(dict.ToString()); // outputs 10,10 dict.Offset(10, 10); // modifying a COPY, the one in the dictionary is not changed Console.WriteLine(dict.ToString()); // still outputs 10,10
@vesuvius: that was in 2009, and VS2010 was released in April 2010, so no conflicts here.
You might be wondering why I was so quiet during the home stretch. I'm afraid my perspective on the VS RC and RTM milestones was an outsider's. The Beta 2 push was my last major hands-on involvement with the product; probably the simplest diagnosis is that I burned myself out at that point. In any case I took a vacation after that Beta with the goal of returning to find a new challenge.
Oh, Silverlight is a 'plugin', a plugin need to be compatible with more hosts, so a 64bit version is necessary, bloated or not.
On the other hand, Visual Studio is an ecosystem, it need to be compatible with more 'plugins', even itself is assembled by lots of plugins, so having a 64bit version of shell means much more work for internal teams and external partners, different story.
Huh, Rico was working on some 'internel incubation project' from summer 2010 to winter 2011.
Rico Mariani became my boss last summer
was working on an internal team that I could not write much about for the last couple of years
I know its completely off-topic but ......

That said, I seem to remember a comment when Windows 8 was first demoed publicly by Sinofsky and, Julie Larsen, where there was a remark that made it seem like HTML 5 development had suddenly been raised to a preferred method of developing apps for Windows 8. Of course that's nonsense and anyone with common sense should be able to deduce what was meant. It does show how easily confused people get about future directions.
I'm sure Felix can track down the comment - although it's just for historical curioisity at this point.
Hmm... no, believe it or not, it didnt sounds like the HTML5 is the 'preferred' way, instead, it sounded like HTML5 is the 'only' way for the new UI ! everything else is still supported but just for the old UI !
People knew it can't be true, but its still 'poor developer communications and PR'
To be fair, Charles clarified this the next day on Channel9 https://channel9.msdn.com/posts/A-quick-look-at-Windows-8#c634425734130000000
but this was almost the ONLY outspoken MS employee for three months, in a comment of a post ! Peter Brown may be another one, everyone else was saying "None of us at Microsoft can say anything until //build/ in September." Ouch.
Even MaryJo Foley wanted to stop the FUD
But people still had this impression in August.
All in all, this ridiculous thinking might be a result of 'speculation', but stupid PR from Microsoft definetively set it off and helped a lot to spread it.
Scott Hanselman was obviously joking in that podcast I mentioned, but the joke itself reflects the situation of reality, isn't it ?
OK. That's all for today's history lessons, lets move along.
