dear blue, please do not link opinion pieced that do not offer any comments section so that we can properly inform the editor they are wrong.

Windows me was a bit of an unstable mess. I liked it in some cases because it featured all the updates in a single install. windows update took for ever to work, if it did.

On the other hand to think windows 8 was bad is just plain retarded. No seriously that editor needs to be fired. You MAY not have liked the Metro touch interface, even though to this day we still have laptops with touch displays who are hobbled by the LACK OF.. but under the hood Windows 8 had everything good about windows 7 and more. If you ignored METRO, it was still a faster and more stable windows 7 with new features.

As I have lived through them all, Windows ME was probably the lowest point, but honestly windows 95 and 98 rounded the entire year out into what was actually a pretty horrible OS. For all the features it brought to us, it had just as many bugs and exploits. Things were soooo bad that people actually turned to windows 2000, which was NOT a consumer level OS, it was the next version of NT for businesses. However because businesses needed something that wasnt going to crash every 15 minutes they had to make the OS a little more robust. XP came out of the gates and fell on its face, but recovered and finally beat out windows 2000 as a better OS (my conversion point was a strange performance issue on need for speed underground 2 that did not fix itself with a fresh install. I decided to go to xp and never turned back).

When vista came out it was eventually windows 7 beta. A lot of windows was re written and it featured much needed security updates, but stability took a hit. I personally had no problem with it, but I won't ignore the many others that I read about. Windows 7 was the final version of vista, windows 8 added an interface as well as features under the hood that made windows a good tablet usable operating system (Boot times that didnt suck and more low power modes supported. FAST BOOT! )

Honestly windows 10 is just windows 8 with the metro screen shrunk down, and just the usual incremental updates like dx 12 and a much better update program.

I am very interested to see how this turns out. The store monopoly apple has had on its platform for over a decade is really something that consumers should never have allowed. However corporations bent because hey, some money is better than no money. I really wanted to see what would happen when a big company and a well established game app finally says no. What happens now? Yes, epic will lose some revenue, but what happens if this causes kids who play lots of fortnite to jump from apple to android?

Keep in mind, if epic's move pays off and its apple player base moves over, other companies will do the same. This would kill apples foot hold as a major player in the phone market.

Seems totally wastefully to support VR like features instead of finishing VR support to begin with.

I am surprised to see that rare has never re-released the arcade versions of the game ever. I was also shocked to discovery that the arcade was actually the last version released, being based off the SNES version. I thought like always, the console versions are based from the arcade.

Imo doesnt look as good as the arcade.

First rule of encrypting windows, for the love of God don't use windows encryption. Veracrypt can do the whole drive as well as give you personal drives that are stored in a single encrypted file on the hd.

god damnit, the first thing I thought of was someone made a game to make fun of donald trump.

I guess that is bound to happen when you are still making games on a 15 year old IP.

I have run upnp... but it seems even though I haven't updated OpenWRT in a while, I scanned free and clear. Quit running junk software on your routers?

I find them funny but not in the way that it makes me want to always click on the next one he makes. I find that if I know and have seen the movie.. I enjoy it. With one exception, he did the new Cats remakes which of course I haven't seen and it was downright hilarious.

Also... blues... tiddies are not pockets is from May 19, 2014, let it die plz.

You're getting fantasy in my fornite! You're getting fortnite in my fantasy!

In the world of grand royals, when has it always been about one on one deathmatch? Lets be clear about this, grand royal is NOT a realistic means of competition in real life. Every movie, tv show, and other media that covers a grand royal style situation quickly understands being alone is a quick way to being dead. Groups are formed on several fronts.

This is the way.

Epic is being delusional. Go ahead and ban it, you want to know what the next fortnite will be? a fortnite that adds the ability to create groups in the middle of the game.

Lol that is not cheating. That is the premise of any battle royal movie or anime. You create friendships to get an edge. If you want nothing more than 1x1 matchups, you don't do it in a battle royal.

Nintendo hardware and software is out of stock every where.. but it is not due to excessive demand, it is just due to not being able to meet basic demands. I'm sure they would love to ramp up production instantly but that isn't even remotely possible.

what a ridiculous article. All it does is regurgitates basic information on all the future interfaces we have been conceptualizing or testing in the past 30 years, even stepping into fantasy like thought control. We are no closer to saying goodbye to either.
