It doesn't really forgive the (slightly less than 8) awful start menu,

I honestly don't know what a win7 person could have against the Start Menu, it has more functionality and if you don't like the modifiable tiles to the right, take them off. From there you have a superior start menu to 7.

People seem to forget that Trump and his followers are now the revolutionaries.

Revolutions sound a lot better at age 20 when I had nothing, looking at only myself and not others approaching retirement. Now at 50 and a lifetime of savings and various funds... I'm looking at a decent retirement. But now the revolution can F that all up, markets don't like revolutions is my educated guess. Figures.

Everyone bought into agile development hook line and sinker.. Unless your goal is testing this will always be a afterthought. It's great for the bottom line, and iterating a design, but not so great for quality.

You said it all, it is great for the bottom line, which is basically everything. Quality is relative and if good enough, that is good enough. Really if things were tested out to the hilt, you would just have less features and still have bugs.

1700 gold farmers now have to tell their wife what they do for a living.

How exactly do you 'farm gold' in Overwatch? You have played Overwatch right, ya know the game where you can unlock stuff but can't trade it or anything?

They'll have to explain that to their wives as well.

1) I know Skyrim is not supposed to work at above 60FPS. The physics engine has a flaw where things start acting incorrectly. This was painfully obvious when I re-loaded Skyrim last week on my new PC and tried to start from scratch. The opening scene with the horse carriage taking you to be executed was completely messed up. The horse was all over the place, the scripted events with the execution, etc. were messed up. I do not think I was even able to get to the end without it getting stuck somewhere. This was all running at over 120FPS which was the culprit. I found a way to limit it to 60FPS and everything worked fine.

With the special edition, I had no problems with anything. The opening scene finished without a glitch and I have been playing the game without any issues since. I typically get about 80FPS, but in some inside areas it is way over 120. To me it looks like the old bug with the physics engine has been fixed which is awesome news to me

That is actually pretty big news if it holds, it really is the only major tech issue imo it had left. I know many are hoping and praying there is a new engine in the future for this series, but as they keep improving this one, I tend to believe it will be this engine until they really go out of their way to tell us they are making a change.

I am very happy using Win10 with Steam, Uplay and GOG Galaxy. The stupid and shitty Windows Store is not a good enough excuse to stop me to using Win10. I just don't use/click it the APP. Remove icon/shortbut from Taskbar/Star Menu, problem solved. As for privacy concern, I installed Spybot Anti-Beacon and stopped most if not all the MS telemetry/sniffing...


PC users are supposed to act like console users? Leave your brain at the door and do no extra steps to make your setup better. It's funny how we are, no? PC's great, flexibility, they say. Something comes out one wants to hate and we ignore that we have options to do things differently on the PC.

Agenda's we all have them and why politics are the same no matter who's in charge. We'd do no better.

Agreed. What I'd really like to do at this point is swtich to Linux for general OS work stuff and SteamOS for games and kick MS to the fucking curb entirely.

Do it, be a man of action vs a man of words.

If you decide to use the Windows store games, which at this time, I haven't started once. I found plenty to play without going in there. IMO that whole article should be stated clearly that way. For ex the heading: "Play games offline on Win 10", should be "Play Win 10 Store boughten games offline on Win 10".

Yep click bait. Google does nothing to save PC's, act as if they have really something new (they don't). Apple is just std improvements. MS is a bit more exciting with their offering. To save PC's though, laughable, it fills a niche.

PC's constant state of death.

I can give you my reasoning... I'm a developer that has work in a *NIX env my whole career. To use Windows 10 for what I do would just kill me, it's a horrid environment for work. I have nothing but issues on my gaming PC, and it all comes down to Windows being shitty and hardware vendors providing shitty drivers and software.

My MacBook pro can go months without a single restart, where it goes to sleep around a dozen times a day- the only restarts I do initiate are for security updates. I have trouble getting my windows machines to wake from sleep/hibernation. When it does work, my wifi usually has to be killed and restarted or else I'll get a "limited" connection. Oh, and getting a wifi adapter 6 months ago on windows 10 was a disaster, NOTHING supported 5Ghz reliably.

What is always interesting is how we all have different experiences. My Win10 is acting like your Mac. Win7 was solid like that Mac as well and I assume Win8 would have been if I'd had used it. I do agree though, mac made a comeback on users that couldn't have any luck with their PC's. That's how it happened for most. Xp as much as we liked it, was really in a time when browsing the internet and getting hijacked, was way too easy for many to get and blow out their PC. I'd have to always service family and friends, those that didn't mind forking out the dough moved to macs. Since Win7 that has dropped dramatically and Win10 is just more of the same for me.

Update: Still have the two services off on my PC's. No forced updates since. Going on 3 months.

Right on Tom! That's awesome. And of course the 2 GOP commissioners came down on the side of big biz and against the people as usual. Jesus, it'd be sad if it wasn't so funny; There was also an article on WaPo about how Trump's luxury hotels are struggling. Well why don't his supporters stay in them? Oh right, because they can't afford to. Once again going back to the ancient adage about conservatives are either rich or stupid, and most of them aren't rich.

Isn't much a reinvent, just another take on a pc hw setup. A Surface Pro PC. Yeah ok, whatever, perhaps some have a need for the setup.

Sounds like the devs need to grow a pair and get in a union and fight for their bigger share of the pie. It's all up to each and every one of us to obtain leverage and use it if we like and then see where it leads. No guarantees.

Drones, when used properly for fun or as a tool, are not the issue.

It's the idiots the go beyond common sense that ruin it for everyone else.

So blanket ban them all, poor answer Sweden, very poor.

But that is how it works. I don't want the TSA, but someone went and fucked it all up. Drones for many are just a wow cool thing... but they do come with privacy issues and a few others. Go wow and cool something else.

I'm all for people fighting for what they believe in peacefully. That is how this all is supposed to work. If you feel exploited to a point you have to take action and do... good for you. Doesn't mean you will win or not, if it is just enough you will win. Otherwise we'd all be beaten down to slaves in enough time, no voice, no actions available. So go for it... the market will speak.
