Blame the divorce on being cooped up in a 66,000 square foot home worth over $131 million dollars during the pandemic.

I find difficult to believe your frequency of use justifies it either. But hey, you are certainly free to do as you wish and I bear you no malice nor feel it is necessary to criticize you for it.

It's crop planting/growing season plus storm/hail season here. So you bet your ass I am checking that weather multiple times a day!

Plus, I tend to lose time when I get invested in something. Having the time in a larger form where I can see it helps me to realize "Yeah, I probably should take a break since I have been staring at this code for five straight hours without moving."

Yes. I am one of them. But, obviously, not on Windows and it isn't in my "taskbar".

I have a widget that runs on my lower left monitor that has time, date, weather, and my "to-do" list for the day that syncs with my calendar. It's easy to see at a glance without having to look in two or more places for the same information.
I have the date and time in the corner and in fact use an application to display the time in two other time zones. The frequency with which I check the weather is far too low to justify it being ever present. And that's from a guy who spends most of his day in a room where the only window is covered with blackout curtains which haven't been open in over a decade. I find difficult to believe your frequency of use justifies it either. But hey, you are certainly free to do as you wish and I bear you no malice nor feel it is necessary to criticize you for it.

I think the big question about the Gates divorce is who gets to keep the microchip in the vaccine IP rights.

George Soros I think?
Since they didn't have a prenup that won't be settled for years.

who seriously has a weather or news ticker popout on the taskbar? what use is that to anyone? who doesnt have a browser open most of the time?

having a dedicated resource scraping the internet even more is not a great idea.

I think it's MS trying to merge tablet/phone/desktop eventually... and it will be a total mess. I will definitely disable that...

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
