    I am not in favor of moving from a high performance languages like C++ and C# and go towards Languages like Javascript and HTML that is designed for web not high performance desktop apps just to please developers. There are other ways to please developers such as bringing excitement to arena by introducing new and innovative devices with UWP. Invest more into UWP, improve performance, invest into communities , fund frameworks around UWP and ... Objective C was Objectively the worst language on earth and top that off with apple's ridiculous $100/year developer fee and their terrible support and slow app approval process. Yet all of it didn't stop developers from writing apps for iOS for many years because excitement was around iOS devices and ecosystem not development tools and obstacles.

    In an ironic twist a leaked memo warned employees not to leak Apple stuff!

    Hopefully feature parody with win32 app? All that moaning you’re referring to would probably be dramatically reduced if MS would stop pushing gimped versions on everyone.

    They should really change the name from "Autopilot" to "drive assist" or something like that, so people don't stop grabbing the wheel or stop looking the road, they shouldn't trust the system to do all their driving for them.

    How much would the: oil industry, automotive industry, banking industry, transportation industry, aerospace industry, Boeing, Lockheed, the agriculture industry, the for profit prison and law enforcement industry, and countless other industries have without government funding, government backing, government bailouts, government incentives, tax breaks, etc. take your trolling crap elsewhere

    UWP is a big scam. First, Microsoft is trying to sell as a novelty solution, even when it's not. I can develop a desktop application and a website by using a shared code, it's nothing special. UWP would be ruled if a single application (instead of a single package) would be able to run on different machines without any changes, and it's not the case. Second, I can develop a .net application that runs in x32 and x64 without any problem and without using UWP or paying a percentage of the store. And for mobile, Windows Phone is dead!. So, the "universal" is reduced to desktop, Xbox, and vr, and since I am not programming games, then Xbox is out, and vr is nothing.

    For the rest of the planet, 4/1 is the fourth of January. If they'd launched then, there wouldn't be a need to have to ameliorate prank fears. As an added bonus, for the US, they could have hooked into "1/4" as part of the whole "it's faster" marketing by saying resolution would take ¼ the time of a user's ISP (which most people would be using by default). Maybe they weren't ready at the beginning of the year...

    The more important question is why can't Microsoft patch these security bugs within 90 days? Microsoft needs to improve their security quickly and not just give us lip service about it. The 90's and their slow web connections, and slow CPU's, are long gone. Today's OS's need to be secured ASAP. MSFT needs to get the job done. Fixing bugs isn't usually the problem. Fixing bugs without creating more or breaking third party software is.

    I have been a Neowin member for almost 15 years, browsing my way back here during the Whistler days and joining afterwards. Things have changed a lot for me since then personally and career wise. For Neowin, I was a moderator back in 2005/2006. I only ever go to the front page daily or news but that is about it. What have I missed around here? I remember a lot of the members back in the day who have most likely moved on. It is interesting to come by and check on things.

    SP was one of the main reasons I even bought this franchise. If it's just pure MP with a $60 price tag + dlc, screw dat.

    Wouldnt be surprised. Stopped playing COD years ago when it became obvious they were more concerned about MP. Then they flooded the scene by producing what, a new game every year? COD...blah

    Everyone that installed a 'beta/test version' and are now complaining... Stop. Also, don't install beta/test versions ever again. Leave 'beta testing' to people that don't mind the 'process' and have the expertise. Microsoft needs to stop letting non-technical users participate. Instead of people seeing it as an opportunity to get early access and have a voice in the process, Microsoft gets demonized by users that had no business messing with beta software in the first place. Microsoft NEVER announced 17133 was the release version, officially or unofficially. So if you installed 17133 on systems you weren't using for testing, you own this, don't blame Microsoft. (Especially the people that download ISOs from non-Microsoft sources.)

    You can develop a UWP app that does not go through the store. UWP, in addition to bundling different compiled targets, also replaces Win32 APIs (and many .NET APIs too), in favor of a more structured and modern development framework. It's very clear that it's not a scam because Apple will be creating something akin to UWP for iOS and macOS development, which they will announce at WWDC according to rumors. UWP apps, unlike Win32 and .NET, are more portable across different hardware -- ignoring mobile friendliness -- like ARM processors and smaller screen devices like tablets (which behaves like most modern websites with UIs that can adjust based on screen size). Finally, UWP apps use a very different application model compared to the old Win32 and .NET apps. UWP apps are sandboxed with limited file system access. Old applications are given as much power as the user has and they tend to touch the registry a lot. The fact that they can be delivered from the Microsoft Store ranges from being irrelevant to a benefit based on your own perspective.

    "Dated processors..." Yeah... Microsoft was the very first OEM out of the gate on Skylake with the SP4 / SB, and look how that worked out. There is a reason that Apple doesn't refresh it's Mac products reflexively on an annual basis, and that it sometimes waits a considerable time before adopting the newer generation of Intel processors. Delivering a "premium experience" is not always about having the latest/greatest/fastest; it's about reliability, smoothness, and excellence. Microsoft still has a ways to go to match Apple, IMO, but calling them out for taking a conservative approach to adopting the latest from Intel is probably not the answer.

    What is there to leak? Just look what Android does today and you'll see the same on your next Apple device 2-3 years down the road.

    Microsoft has a problem: all the apps mentioned in that article are garbage... Edge, Mail, Cendar, Stocks, Weather.. they all have better 3rd party alternatives I honestly can't name a single "Windows 10 modern app" (or whatever they're called now) I remember using in the last 4 years except Windows Explorer, Calculator, Remote Desktop and the usual basic apps you need to manage your computer What's going on Microsoft? Why are all your apps subpar?

    Hopefully this is just a bug and gets rectified. There has never been an instance where I'm looking for something on my computer, and wanted to see web search results. ...and even for those moments where I thought, "Hey, maybe it'll take me to their web page so I can install this application from there..." it still wasn't good enough results to merit using. Just my experience though.

    According to Microsoft, only Americans read books According to Microsoft: Mexico = funny people, Canada =even funny people. UK = a country that pays for each dollar a pound. (best friend). UE = taxes and demands. (not a friend). Japan = Country that doesn't buy my Xbox Everywhere else = a myth.

    I don't know about that but armed security might go a long ways. Ironically California has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and youtube hq's campus is a gun free zone. Why won't those silly criminals follow the laws? We need more!

    Having spent several weeks traveling around India, the poverty and illness you see on the roadsides is shocking. Even more shocking is the apparent complete disregard for these poor people by the rich because of their religious hierarchical system. It would be highly embarrassing for Google Street View to photograph all this.
