Meet Windows 10, The Successor To Windows 8. Microsoft Announces New Operating System.

    ... Microsoft officially unveiled the next version of Windows.

    And instead of calling it as we all expected, Windows 9x
    Microsoft decided skip a number and put Windows 10.

    The reason?


    According to Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President for the
    Group System Operational, the new release meant such a
    significant change in the way in which Windows was distributed
    and what is Windows, which call Windows 9x had not been
    sufficiently " large " to capture differences.


    Microsoft already has a certain fame to make some " eccentric "
    movement with the nomenclature of their products.

    Interested ....

    And all because the brought back the start menu which is now a new feature - also it has been there until Windows 8 was introduced.
    Windows ME, Windows Vista, Windows 8(.1), ...
    Maybe Windows 10 has finally the potential to break Microsoft dominance. :D

    It's great to see we have some good people around here who can read though Microsoft's BS.
    Unlike all the other Microsoft a$$ kissers out there on the net.

    I'm so glad we have Linux as an option.
    I didn't even know MS was still around, I thought they went out of business two years ago..lol. :p
    Everyone you talked to hated 8 and wanted to get back to 7, now they have v10. That's 10 times more headaches. I'm sick of software with activations.
    Even when you pay for stuff It still doesn't work. In my 16 years of computer experience, I've found that all the software I bought at a store was the most unstable and buggy software I've ever used. All the free Open source programs like ImageBurn, FreeFileSync, Foobar2000, Mp3Tag, Notepad++, XAMPP, Gimp, Blender, ect, all runs flawless.

    It's sad, I have to call MS every time I want to install my old (legal copy) of XP for a new activation code. Fu...K them. They deserve to fail.
    Thank goodness for hacks.

    I still love this picture, even though Gates is old news now.

    Don't hate the player, hate the game (luv that saying). Microsoft is a business and they are in it for the money......which is not unusual for a business....matter of fact it is pretty standard. I use Windows 7 but I ain't bragging about it. Props to those who have found a better answer to windows and do without it, more power to ya! But most software (even the hacked stuff) is written with windows in mind. So I go with the flow because swimming upstream is a strenuous endeavor.

    Very true, accurate point Ceewan.

    I just had a bad experience with them on the phone more then a few times. The stuff was suborn (would not budge) about selling a license key for Win7 immediately after 8 came out. They told me they have no more to sell. Give me break. They could care less if you run a business and need a particular OS to run your company's software. I've been told on the phone a few times by the staff that they simply won't do it. I don't run a business, but the same thing happened to my friend who is self employed which made his life hell for a while.
    These are procedures and policy's of the corporation. I have a problem with the Mass Marketing Mass consumption business model in the modern world. I know it's been there far before I was around, but it's gotten so out of hand in the last 15 years.
    I have a duel boot Windows machine. XP/and 7 I use that machine exclusively to play some old games. I keep XP around because I think it was the best OS MS ever made minus the memory management improvements of Win7.

    It's the way of the world I guess. Things change, it's life. But why do they have to change so fast.
    I have guitar amplifiers that are over 30 years old still running rock solid. I bought a Fender amplifiers two years ago and the control pots are already oxidizing and making noise. Everything is built like crap today, and less and less people take pride in what they do. It's a new world that's for sure.
    I guess to be fair, some things are getting better, while others worse. Maybe it all balances out.

    An unusually optismitic view for you Summer-Time-Fun. Good for you.

    I have been thinking about these same differences off and on for some years now. It is my opinion that it is just a by-product of progression of the industrial age. Companies build and sell to make money. While an inferior product is not necessarily in mind certainly profit margins take precedence over pride. What the consumer sorely misses today are the declining craftsman of yester-year who staked their reputation and business on the pride of their handiwork (rare today, those are). When I was a kid, Sears would replace a Craftsman wrench if it broke.......without a reciept.

    Your right though, it is a fair trade-off, all-in-all. Larger corporations have many advantages over the obsolete craftsman. They can produce more, reach a larger part of the population, and can compartmentalize seperate aspects such as; production, quality control and research and development; in order to become more efficient.

    Sure, you can still get handmade furniture that is both unique, sturdy and long lasting. So if you look for the craftsman they are still out there. Craftmanship is part of who we are as a people and I think that will never completely disappear.

    Also I'm not a fan of Microsoft (To be more accurate: I hate them as I have to fight with their code every day), but I understand that in some way. The point is that as a developer (or company that develops) your goal is that all of your customers use only one version of your program and of course that's the latest.
    Otherwise you always have to support the old ones which cost a lot of time. Especially if your customers run into problems you already have fixed in the newest version. In the end your more busy with migrating fixes from one version to the others than developing your next version.

    In case of Microsoft I personally have the problem that their newest version doesn't have any features I need. It's like my mobilphone. I have an Samsung S3. But I don't plan to by a S5. All the advantages of the S5 to my S3 are not interesting for me. So why should I buy it? But in case of Microsoft I'm sooner or later forced to switch to the newer version because new versions of the programs I use (or the hardware if I buy a new PC) don't run on my Windows version.
