IMHO...


Tablets are only for n00bs who want something other than a cell phone that features a larger screen/interface, but who fear that learning how to operate an actual desktop computer is simply too hard/difficult for them. Mostly, for those people, it's only after they buy a tablet that they discover how incredibly limited they are in terms of general purpose computing, and how much better a DIY Windows box is in terms of value and longevity--as tablets are not user-serviceable, or user-upgradable, etc. Desktop PCs--especially DIY assemblies--blow tablets out of the water in terms of value and longevity and overall usefulness.

But, basically, hard-core tablet people distill into one of two camps:

1) They own a tablet in addition to a desktop PC, not instead of a PC

2) They find that the limited capability of a tablet suits them perfectly and they need nothing else--this is the group that buys tablets instead of desktop PCs. But in a sense they don't count in terms of sales missed for desktop PCs because these people were never desktop PC customers to begin with...;)

Also, much is made of the drop in retail OEM desktop PCs by Dell, etc., at an annual rate. But all of these statistics come from groups (Gartner, inc.) that have always left out a huge chunk of the annual desktop PC marketplace in their estimates--the DIY build-your-own-box people (the group I have belonged to since I bought my last OEM desktop in 1995 for $4700--a Micron with an original 90MHz Pentium and a SCSI hard drive...;))

Ten years ago, DIY tech was neither as cheap nor as accessible nor as plentiful nor as compatible as the PC components market is today, hence while the OEM retail desktop PC market has contracted by 25% since then, even considering the rise of cell phones with tiny GUIs and tablets during the period, it's extremely obvious that the DIY desktop-PC components market has *grown* by *at least* 30% during the same period...! And yet, for some really strange and weird reasons, the official sales' estimate groups like Gartner & IDC, etc., still don't count the DIY desktop market *at all.*...!

I read an estimate by someone not too long ago that put annual motherboard sales by MSI, Asus, and Gigabyte combined running at between 25M-35M units *a year*--for just those three component giants. In short, the components are selling like they've never sold before--and don't forget probably the most important part of the DIY computer components market, the so-called "Mom & Pop" Independent computer dealers globally who build and sell their own local store-brand PCs...! I would estimate there are easily hundreds of thousands, if not a million or two, of "Mom & Pop" independent desktop computer stores globally, that service not only individuals but also local schools and smaller businesses, etc. These desktop PC sales aren't counted, either!

Everywhere we look these days we are being bombarded by fake/incomplete news and numbers. I blame Apple for a lot of this nonsense in the computer market sectors as the company has always projected the Reality Distortion Field as widely as possible--and as such, before the first iPad even sold, Steve Jobs (RIP) was already talking up the "post-PC era"...just to help Apple's marketing of the iPad, etc...;) What a con-man was Jobs--have to give him that if nothing else...;) The truth is that we are entering not only the post tablet era in general, but also the post-iPhone market in particular, as Apple's competitors in the cell-phone market grow ever more successful each year. Apple is superior only for so long as it can hold a monopoly stake in a particular market--like, for instance, the iPad or iPhone, take your pick. The minute that competition enters the arena, however, Apple begins an inevitable decline and the search for the next great fad begins...;) This pattern is in the company's DNA, I'm afraid. OS X, for instance, as a computer OS, has done no better globally than it has because Apple chains it to it's own retail-branded x86 hardware and thus will not compete directly with OSes like Windows or Linux, which can comfortably run on anybody's x86 hardware, including Apple's. When Apple briefly allowed Mac clone makers a very limited permission to manufacture Mac clones (a Mac cloner was required, for instance, to buy 80% of his hardware direct from Apple), Apple could not even compete with the clone makers even under the most restrictive of Apple clone agreements!

But that is how Apple works traditionally : 9 out of ten fads the company starts fail; but the fad that succeeds from Apple is often a huge success temporarily--until after Apple fails at stopping the manufacture and sale of competitive products through its lawsuits division. When competition arrives, Apple finds it cannot compete and so keeps trying to hit the next huge fad market--iWatch, etc. Rinse and repeat, ad infinitum.

To sum up, tablets--not impressed, as you may just possibly be able to discern. It's fitting that the first "tablet" to roll out was the iPad as Apple's entire history as a company consists of rolling the components that other companies make into 'new" flash-in-the-pan products that may or may not make it. OK, subject exhausted--nothing else to say!...;)

Just go to bed ......

After getting burned by their first game (which has almost no playerbase on PC now), I'm not getting this one. The first one was Call of Duty: Star Wars not a real successor to the first 2 Battlefront games.

It even sold with a pay-to-win weapon packaged in the "Deluxe" edition just like Activision does with Call of Duty and Supply Drops (yeah, I know you could unlock it after getting max level and they eventually nerfed it but if you got the game on release, it was absolutely a pay-to-win weapon that simply wrecked people without it).

So...you are one of those sad ones who pays to win , who does not have the time to play ANY game so might aswell just pay your way through it .........sigh

I'm having a hard time getting upset about this...

I fully support peoples choice to stick with an older version of Windows, and this note doesn't imply that that choice can't continue... It's merely MS stating they don't want to keep paying to support combinations that they don't want to.

This does cause a problem with OEMs or Parts sellers that will still happily sell you a new copy of Win7/8 (assuming you can still get those) with a new system.

I realize 7 is old, but it's still the most popular OS

I'm really curious to see a source on this... I couldn't find an up to date chart (wikipedia is a few years old, but the trend looked like 10 would be higher by now, and Steam has 10 at ~49%, 7 at ~37%).

That's Steam, gamers generally keep on top of the "new thing" moreso than your average consumer. I think that 7 is possibly still the most popular, but then again, XP was more popular than Windows 7 was during the entire window that Win7 was the latest and greatest OS.

There's no safety in numbers, as most people still haven't upgraded beyond a dual-core, and there's still hundreds of millions of people still running a 32-bit OS.

Win 10 needs to squash the ads, and then it will be a solid OS, and just keep it the same for 10 years, So in 2025 we might FINALLY have a large majority of people on the same OS. I'd like to have performance closer to what consoles get thankyouverymuch, I don't need my game to be coded so that it can work on a 20 year old CPU on a 15 year old OS. Enough is enough.

Well go buy yourself a Playstation....jezz what a j..k

At least I got a good laugh reading such complete nonsense. So obvious it is heavily skewed to the performance of their GPU's hence completely useless for testing purposes.

Yeah, because Windows ETW and Oculus Rift api and SteamVR api are heavily skewed towards NVIDIA.. lmao. Please at least download and run the tool before you write nonsense ;p This is a frame capture tool, like wireshark for the rendering pipeline. The end result is a complex log that a few python scripts run over to tell you where and how many frames were dropped, where major latency weirdness happened and where 2 frames in mgpu were not completing within the latency limit of VR, it is primarily a thing for devs and review sites to make in-depth comparisons between VR api's which up to this tool was entirely impossible.

So....
