    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    Apple switched to x86 in 2006 so we aren't talking about 19 years, we're talking about 4 years later. Each additional year that goes by that PowerBook G4 got slower and less compatible with software. How long you think the same will happen with the move to ARM? You wanna know how Linux is...

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    Assuming that's correct, that isn't enough reason to go out and buy a Mac in 2002. Chances are you had Internet Explorer on Mac as well because most websites back then needed IE to work correctly because websites sucked back then. So if you needed IE to use certain websites then what's the...

    Here is why Spacex's Starlink should work:

    Wasn't it reported that the wealthy don't pay taxes? So exactly which half we talking about here?

    Browsers being hot in 2002? As far as I remember you either used Internet Explorer or you didn't use the internet. It wasn't until FireFox was created where we got features like a pop-up blocker and addons, which in my opinion remade the internet. I don't get the obsessions with Chrome as...

    XP was good for a number of reasons, again based in that time period. It used the same NT kernel as Windows 2000, which at the time was a leap forward in stability and security. It was compatible with Windows 95/98 drivers, and even allowed a lot of DOS stuff to still work. It adopted a lot...

    Too bad Windows XP was just Windows 2000 with stuff that Microsoft didn't give to 2000. Some people got DX9 working on 2000 as well. UAC was such a huge leap that I disable it now whenever I can. In Linux you don't have this problem because the only time something asks for root is when...

    Good! The sooner we adopt this technology then the better we'll be. The less humans on the road the safer I'll feel.

    I actually found an AppImage and it works in Linux... but has ads. What cancer is this?

    XP wasn't bad at all and was probably Microsofts best OS ever. It's just that XP lasted far too long and Microsoft was trying to push people onto Vista and Windows 7 to the point where Microsoft started to intentionally ignore security fixes on XP. Also, Microsoft was ill prepared for the...

    That's amazing but is there a way to have a program running local and not a web browser?

    Here is why Spacex's Starlink should work:

    Starlink will be successful because broadband in the US is still fucked. Lots of people who live too far away from cities and towns who don't have a choice or don't have good choices. Lots of people who only have one choice, usually cable or worse DSL. Starlink is not ideal as I'm certain...

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    When Vista came out I was playing WoW The Burning Crusade and I would constantly switch back and forth between Windows XP and Vista because the frame rates were too low on Vista. It was a driver problem at the time but that's why people avoided Vista. This is no longer an issue with things like...

    For me Wine hardly works, which is a problem for someone who plans to run Linux in place of Windows. I only have one PC that runs Windows 10 and the introduction to Windows 11 may be a good reason to make the switch to Linux. But Wine is the biggest problem by far and lots of games still don't...

    US PC shipments soar 73% in the first quarter as Apple falls from top spot

    Yep, people are broke. There's a market for broke laptop owners.
