  1. This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. The Windows Kernel is probably the most advanced piece of software ever written, and it would be way easier to run linux on the windows kernel than run windows on the linux kernel. Not only that, Windows and Linux have entirely different driver models, so you would be stuck using Linux drivers...

  2. Why is everyone in such a rush to preorder and buy both the ps5 and xbox series x? Just wait a few months to a year, and see how each console does, in terms of games, support and customer satisfaction, before deciding.

  3. That's why you let the early adopters beta test for a few months first before buying it yourself.

  4. What do you disagree with? Epic tried talking, and that didn't get them anywhere. The next step is suing. The fact that they're working with other companies should be encouraging, not discouraging.

  5. I'm sorry, what? The Windows kernel is one of the most advanced pieces of software ever written, based on much more modern ideas than Linux. Heck, for this to work Microsoft would have to write an entirely Windows-compatible layer over Linux and at that point, why not write an entire OS yourself again? Ho wait, that's what they are doing right now... with Windows.

  6. Unless there is 100% compatibility power users, gamers and businesses will be against it. Windows is popular mostly for backwards compatibility.

  11. While I get your reasons about 4K60 and ray-tracing, reduced load times etc., they're not going to make it easier for you to purchase Xbox over the competition (the PS5 offers these too), hence the lack of their mention. Disagree with you about All Access not being a reason enough to upgrade. Definitely is if you're tight financially but still want to enter next-gen. And how exactly does Game Pass + Microsoft acquisition not benefit the next-gen? Do you honestly expect Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI to launch on Game Pass day one on current-gen (or even current-gen at all)? :-s

  12. I dont think this is talking about manual OC, these cards made to automatically OC when there's enough power. This is where the problem comes in.

  13. I hardly call a 5.4 inch display "mini." Maybe "midi?" I agree with samw61 that, hopefully, there will be a trend to smaller phones. Presently, the phone size war has gotten totally out of hand--to the point of being ridiculous. It is supposed to be a phone, not a small-size tablet.

  14. It isn't really the same situation. As a game developer of PC games, you don't need to use the Epic Games Store. You pay a fee to be there, but you're not forced to be there. You can use your own website or any platform to publish your games.

  17. Think Eric has been smokin too much drugs. No one would upgrade to this new "Windows" if it means no apps, games or pretty much anything else would not be able to run. Windows 7 was rock solid as is Windows 10, the only time I need to reboot is monthly patches. Linux is good for servers but is nowhere near as good on the desktop as Windows.

  19. Of course it was. If Apple was going to be "anti-competitive" they wouldn't have added this option in the first place.

  20. What do you disagree with? Epic tried talking, and that didn't get them anywhere. The next step is suing. The fact that they're working with other companies should be encouraging, not discouraging. The only thing that could happen is Apple reducing their cut out of the grace of their heart. As a publicly traded company that's pushed for increased profits, I highly doubt that will happen though. There's nothing to sue for since the rules have been established all along. Apple is free to set their pricing as they please, and nobody else can tell them otherwise. Customers can and should v

  21. While I agree to certain things regarding Apple's policies, I disagree more with the way Epic has been "fighting" this. And if Spotify is now joining Epic on it's silly campaign, I'll seriously have to consider my commitments to Spotify. I've already cancelled my Epic Store account due to personal principals. And won't hesitate to do the same with my Spotify plan.

  22. So their resolution to anti competitive behavior is to hold companies to ransom to get added to the selection screen.

  23. Switching out the NT kernel design to go for a Unix based is the equivalent of full speed reverse. Dave Cutler designed NT properly. It's incredibly flexible and far more capable.

  25. no offence but those seem like some pretty ###### poor reasons you've come up with. Gamepass + microsofts acquisition benefit the current gen, don't need to worry about backwards compatibility if you have a current gen and leasing is a payment option not a reason to upgrade. Off top of my head unique reasons to buy/upgrade, 4K 60fps, ray tracing, no loading screens (thereabouts) and if you're coming to consoles new (gamepass + backwards compatibility for cheap library titles).

  29. I think Epic would be a good candidate to create a new app store on Android. Epic is the last company that you should ever trust to do anything.

  32. 30% is a huge cut and even after that you have to be an additional 30-45% tax to Uncle Sam. The 5% cut would have been reasonable, as this is a SAAS service.

  33. “it's essential that apps can compete on a level playing field, which means creators need to be able to do business directly with their customers, according to Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney” Wait... why can’t I deal direct with developers and publishers on the Epic Games Store? Why is Epic in the middle taking a cut? Strange how they’re demanding that from others, but don’t even apply their wishes to their own store

  36. There's a reason why the core OS team is, was? Under the Azure group, the NT kernel, or what started as that, is at the heart of Azure. They're not going to swap any of that out for a linux kernel. If anything all the Azure core work is finding it's way back into Windows Server/Ent/Pro etc. I think 10X is the first signs of the work they're doing, it's delayed, sure, but more because they did a 180 and went from the dual screen push to a traditional desktop version first.

  38. It's amazing how they turned that app around, it used to be really clunky and everything just felt "off" compared to lawnchair and similar launchers. Now it's easily one of the best options for a modern launcher. Kudos.

  40. Doesn't surprise me. Having been on both ends of Microsoft's and Sony's customer service, Sony don't care and its representatives seem to think that once they have you, you'll never leave. Microsoft, on the other hand, fixed a couple of controllers and a faulty Xbox One X with no questions asked. I've now got an Xbox Series S on pre-order. Bye Sony.
