News Comments > More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney

Okay, I am confused. I thought this was a patch. Is that wrong? Because if it is a patch, what you are saying makes no sense. If it just a new "Anniversary" release which people might ignore, then what you are saying is reasonable.

It's my understanding it's required. It will show up eventually. But it is a totally clean install. Your c:\windows folder is renamed c:\windows.old and you get the brand new c:\windows folder and out of the box "Hi" experience. You can revert to your previous version, but if you open the updates section of a post Anniversary install, it shows no previous patches - because it's a brand new, clean install.

edit: Here is the contents of my root folder.

Here is the contents of the windows.old folder. It is 15 gig.

edit: And because of that being a clean install, you're getting what's in that clean install build. It doesn't (to my knowledge) look at what you removed from the old windows install and then remove those same apps from the new install.

I was referring to the re-installation of Skype.

Well, pertaining to that, it is a totally clean new install of windows. If Skype is apart of that new install, are they supposed to uninstall it, if you didn't have it in your previous version of windows? Are they supposed to do that for all apps they have with the new install that the user didn't have previously?

Nin, I don't have some great conspiracy theory. The release broke Classic Shell. Now perhaps that is because the programmers of Classic Shell had not followed Microsoft's application development rules correctly. But it doesn't change the fact the release cause it to stop working until patched.

See the other thread, I didn't have that issue. CS patched, and was never "broke".

Nin, the re-installation of removed software is not a failure of software migration. I don't understand why you are fighting so hard to defend MS here.

But I didn't have to reinstall it. That's the thing. It (classic shell) upgraded on it's own, before the anniversary update, and was running fine afterwards.

edit: I don't understand why people can't get their facts right.

Oh I thought it was God in the need of a space ship.

Excuse me... But why does God need a spaceship? </Kirk>

I still remember Star Trek V... Worst old Trek movie. But I laughed at the theater because of course a Shatner directed Trek would make Shat/Kirk face (sort of) God with Shat/Kirk winning the fight. THAT is Shat to you, people! Laugh

MS doesn't and quite literally CAN'T prevent every application from having problems when they update something. Saying that they "attacked" Classic Shell when it most likely was a victim of unintended consequences is quite literally a tinfoil hat conspiracy.

For this, and most of your other claims, Occam's Razor gives a much better idea of what's going on.

Did the anniversary Win10 update break Start10 like it did Classic Shell?

Classic shell isn't broke. If you have auto update turned on, they pushed a new version Tues or so...installed and off I went.

Holy shit, was Suicide Squad bad. At one point about 2/3rds of the way through, Will Smith says "When will it end?" and I'm thinking "Yes, Will, when will this end??????????"

It really did feel like (matching reports of the last few days) it was sort of reordered/reedited. Joker shows up and then disappears for 40+ minutes, at one point...



i actually liked it. that story about it being re-edited to shit by the bigwigs really rings true. i felt like there was a really good movie in there but they chopped it up into fish bait.

it tried way too hard to be like the trailers with catchy songs behind montages for the entire first half of the film and a whole lotta stuff is explained unnecessarily out of order, like who the fuck the bad guys are.

but the scenes themselves and the acting were surprisingly good to me. i would gripe with harley's writing though - she tried a little too hard with the harley-isms, and her relationship with joker, frankly, wasn't fucked up enough. surprised how much i liked will smith as deadshot though. i'll be really interested to see the director's cut.

I'd agree with almost everything you wrote, other than I really didn't like the final product on screen. I could easily see the potential there, but something clearly went wrong along the way...

I have to wonder ho much they spent on the soundtrack, only to use 10-15 second snipits...

Meanwhile, Win10 Anniversary Update attacks Classic Shell.
Wow, so completely shitty of them. And the Skype stuff is bad behavior too. I wonder if it would force me to create a Skype login, seeing as I don't have one.

Classic Shell did an update on Tuesday or so and works fine. I'm not sure what he's talking about there. I have it and anniversary running on a machine with zero issues.

And no, it doesn't force you to make a skype login. Not heard a peep out of it. Never used it, see no reason to.

I can honestly say the fearmongering and incorrect information (as trumpboy perfectly illustrates) is worse than the OS. Don't trust that guy as being truthful.

Classic Shell pushed out an update two dates ago to be compatible. Done and done. Still works great.

The lack of bolt actions beyond the sniper class is disturbing. WW1 you say?

It's WW1 from the History Channel perspective so we might even see aliens.

Always a chance in DLC.

Based on the stories of their water, I'm surprised their mascot isn't a walking turd.

edit: OOF!



I don't watch Real Sports series on HBO too often, but there is a good segment on the Olympics venue with a lot of disturbing insights. I'm surprised more athletes haven't backed out; however, competing in the Olympics is a dream of a life time that they have been training for all their lives, so on the other hand its not surprising.




Yeah, those folks spend their entire lives leading up to that...so they face the choice of taking a risk, or waiting 4 long years, and wondering if their body is going to be up to it.

Yeah, quite looking forward to this. I really enjoyed my "CORVO KILLLLLLLL!!!!" playthrough where everything tasted my wrath.

I've only completed it once and went goody two shoes, so I need to do a chaos run and see the differences on the first one...
