Well, it's been announced.

http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/30/6868695/microsoft-windows-10-announced-official

And I'm actually excited. Why?

It looks like Microsoft is trying to do the "continuous client," which is a concept that I've always been really fascinated with. They stated that they want to create an OS with a UI/UX that adapts based on screen sizes and keyboard or touch rather than separate OS versions for different devices.

 

Discuss!

Windows Vista was junk then came Windows 7 was solid and I will stay put on there then Windows 8 came out and it was junk so Windows 10 will or should be the Windows 7.

 

Windows XP was good

Windows ME was the worst piece of junk ever

Windows 98 was good

Windows 95 was meh

Windows 3.1 (and 3.11) was solid

Windows 3.0 was meh

 

I can't comment on Windows 2 or 1.

You know I beta tested Windows ME in the early days of it and I liked it better than Windows 98 First & 2nd Edition. I have every Windows OS from Windows 1.0 thru Windows 8.1 on a Blu-Ray Disc here with ALL flavors and on top of that all MS-DOS. Out of all the Windows you mention I like Windows XP the most before Windows 7 came out which Windows 7 is now 1st on my list then Windows XP then Windows ME.

8.1 works excellent for me. Im excited for the new software. I'll be loading the preview on my laptop as soon as its available tomorrow lol.

I think I'll download and try the preview. Hopefully it's not as much of a space hog as Windows 7 and 8.

I'm assuming it will be slightly bigger than 8. New versions of windows always seem to increase in size.. But I'm looking forward to see what they've find with the new start menu.

One thing I don't like one bit, the late 2015 release date.

 

And if Apple can downsize their OS for performance enhancements, then Microsoft should have figured it out by now, but with the same OS running on a plethora of devices, I suppose you're right on the bigger space usage this time around too.

I was hoping for an early 2015 release date.. So I could get a free copy before I graduate...[emoji17] that lines up with their current October release schedule they've had. but they might have figured out how to downsize by excluding unnecessary things during the install.. Well see how the preview looks tomorrow.

One thing I missed at first ,when I got a windows 8 laptop, was the start menu. After a few weeks I found I never even used the start menu on my windows 7 desktop. But now they sort of combined windows 7 and 8 from the looks of it. This should be very interesting.

I'm pretty sure the install size for 8.1 is smaller than Windows 8.

I have heard that Word has thousands of line of code that nobody knows what they do, but they don't want to remove it because they are afraid it can break something.

 

I can only imagine how bad an entire operating system could be.

7 was a lot more stable. I was very happy with the performance boost over vista, even on an ancient Intel Core Duo.

That's why it's sometimes necessary to re-write the program to optimize the lines of code. So it sounds like they have lines of code that may or may not be useless from probably back when Office 2001 was around. I think Microsoft needs to make some major changes.

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
