  • Windows 10 Aero

    @Troussedetoilette:

    Nothing new on translucent title bars, but they rolled out 10532 to insiders that starts to add consistency to the context menus. It's good to see them actually paying attention to some of these issues.

  • ORM Windows Phone

    @WindowsPhone2015: It partly is based on what version of Windows Phone you are targeting. With version <= 8.1 you are pretty much stuck with SQLite and something like SQLite-net which provides some ORM functionality. For Windows 10 Mobile you will be able to use EF7 and whatever database/provider will run in a UWP app.

  • using a Win8 restore DVD on a Win10 upgraded laptop after 1 year?

    @dentaku: It seems like I saw somewhere that if you use a Microsoft Account, it records that you did a valid upgrade on that machine and doesn't complain if you have to do it again.

  • Faulty update time! (And again, W10..)

    Microsoft made the choice of changing how updates work and forcing them on Home users with Windows 10 and you blame the user for sticking with the Home edition. If that's not both apologetic and pathetic I don't know what is.

    Nice bit of deliberate misunderstanding. I blame advanced technical users for picking an option that they know will not work for them and then complaining about the result. That's what's going on here. It's like a building contractor going onto a car lot, knowing that he regularly needs to pull a 12,000lb equipment trailer, buying a Prius, getting it home and complaining that it doesn't work like he wants. In that situation, the last place to lay blame is on Toyota.

    Humm... So you're suggesting people should have install Win10 Pro solely for able to choose what update they don't want to install. How does that even make sense?

    It'd make more sense to tell them stay at Win7 Home, where they still got the ability to block updates that they don't want to install.

    No, I'm saying that it's pretty stupid to install Windows 10 Home, knowing that you can't block updates, and then proceed to complain that you can't block updates.

    Yeah what you said was even more apologetic! Or was it pathetic? Oh well..I think those words are synonyms in your case anyways.

    I'm not apologizing to anyone about anything. I was pointing out that poking yourself in the eye with a stick and then complaining that the stick was too sharp is just plain silly.

    Oh noes, the dreaded "no one used it anyway" argument, which also was used during the W8 start menu days.

    That's not even remotely close to what I said.

    1. Some people turned Windows Update off or declined updates

    That wasn't the reason. The reason was that Windows asked permission to install updates, and the grandma's reaction was "red X, red X, red X".

    Except that THIS TIME YOU CANNOT STOP UPDATES.

    Microsoft have invalidated that argument completely. Even if only 1% of the user base have this issue, that's TERRIBLY bad given the absolute numbers and that the FRIGGING UPDATES ARE FRIGGING FORCED.

    That's the stupid bed Microsoft made for themselves and now they need to lie in it.

    It's likely much less than 1%, and of that tiny fraction, only a further tiny fraction would even know what happened if there was a bad update. Of that group, it would be a good idea if they ran Pro. If they run Home knowing the risk, then they don't have any reason to complain.

    Interesting. I have 3 machines on Windows 10 and haven't had any issues yet.

    Most likely the failure rate is no different than it's ever been, but people need something to complain about.

  • More Edge annoyances

    I just hope Edge can achieve some kind of consistency in how it works with standards. Recently, I'm needing to put in more comments like this: //hack to make Chrome work
