Windows 10sion

David Pierce on Windows 9 10:

With most or all of those ideas undone or at least de-emphasized — when you use the touch screen you get Continuum, which adds some of the Metro shell on top of the desktop and turns on a back button – Windows 10 feels like a platform that hasn’t seen serious or meaningful change in eight years. Apps have gotten much more powerful and there’s a handy way to search everything, but when you pick up a Windows PC it may not be immediately clear which decade it comes from. It’s the best Windows 7 ever, but it’s still Windows 7.

Such a strange, yet predictable response to Windows 8 by Microsoft. Windows 7 was the de-Vista-ing of Windows. A return to Windows XP. Windows 10 is the de-8-ing of Windows. A return to WIndows 7. 

How many development years has Microsoft collectively wasted on these OS boondoggles? It’s the epitome of a company that wants to change, but can’t.

An astute analysis… Missing the security angle though…

When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

Christopher Columbus likely used this map as he planned his first voyage across the Atlantic in 1492 — and a team of researchers is using multispectral imaging to uncover the hidden text.

The map makes the world look a bit like The Persistence of Memory.

Cool!!
