Its an ugly eventuality they've been heading towards since Win8. Unfortunately the only outs are garbage iOS or Linux which has compatibility issues unless you set up Windows to run with it.

Sigh, technological empires. No competition leads to this shit.

The only thing keeping me on windows at all is games.

Valve is working on it's own Steam OS. Directx has owned the GPU industry too long, but OpenGL is getting some love. The move away from PC games though is probably going to hurt, but I bet Valve comes out with it's own machine.

Well they already have "steam machines", but those are just high performance laptops I think.

They seemed interesting. Considered buying one of those for internet usage when I was looking into buying my laptop specifically for only-audio-no-internet-connection but then I got lazy and connected it to the internet so I never bought a Chromebook.

I think the worrying thing is that Homer is telling Zeluvia what he wants now.

Kill Windows 10 and all who sail in her. Pile of cack except for one or two nice performance improvements for gamers (so what). By the end of the year it'll be rooted droid phone, win7/linux dual boot pc + rooted droid tablet for me, and I guess I'll just drop win7 in due course.

Splendid. Reckon I'll still end up with a tablet but i do like a keyboard.

Every now and then I think back to how cool a ZX spectrum was, keyboard was a mare but at the time you didn't really know any different. The BBC models were too much in the nerdy and university market, we had one at school but it rarely made an appearance, I doubt the teachers knew what to make of it tbh. It was the Amstrad CPC464 that really changed things, proper keyboard and capable of everything you could throw at it except it still relied on a cassette tape, but it had a game named Sorcery that was the best platform game ever. Then came the CPC664 which had a floppy drive, and along came Sorcery II which was the first game to use "disk overlay", allowing the game to switch levels into and out of memory while the game was active. I think Alan Sugar is an absolute tit, but it's a pretty impressive job his people pulled together.

Now it's just so ubiquitous. We knew then it was going to be "the thing" but we had no idea really. We just knew our own kids would have to learn them from a young age, that's for sure.

So, back to the subject. How many of these kids now just upgraded to windows 10 and are completely happy with the default setup and never think anything about the sort of things that have caused the sentiments itt?

So perfection for you is becoming a seasonal migrant and taking away vital housing from the locals.

Interesting.

In dreamland, sure.

Alternatively we could straighten up the globe and lose the whole seasons thing, but I like seasons.
