    I'm tempted but I'll wait for the official preview to come out from MS, I have a feeling it'll be soon anyway. If it's not soon then whatever they do release should have more features in it which is a plus.

    Imagine caring that much about something you have to deliberately read an article, login, and then comment about it pretending you don't.

    "the best desktop in the world." I swear, Apple, you folks should have a comedy stage show in Las Vegas with that kind of comedic writing.

    Developers and marketing myths and Google, oh my... Ever since MS embraced 'standards' Google has been adding in crap whether they ever expect it to be adopted for standards or not. (Ironically, like MS did with IE5/IE6 - although MS had no idea Sun/IBM would block the features at the time.) Next you have Google telling developers, their way/stuff is better. And you have a huge marketshare of Chrome and Android users, to the point web developers don't give a crap about standards and just write for Chromium, and if Apple users are lucky, maybe not breaking webkit in the process. Weird how marketshare + developer control = monopoly not so long ago. Google has managed to bribe and avoid the blunt of this so far. The irony to 'Developers' thinking Google is leading them to the promised land, is a lot of the crap Google is doing is slower, less capable, less stable, and creates massive security risks. Just take when MS's IE9 moved to a compile/run model, and could animate and run web content at near native host 2D/3D rendering speeds. Google's response was WebGL painting to HTML5 and exposing the GPU to site content/scripts - which is still one of the best ways to exploit entry points and damage hardware for hackers. It took Chrome nearly 1/2 a decade to get their actual rendering speeds get 'close' to IE9. But everyone was 'fooled' with Google's 'Fish' demo response, and few people noticed or realized the difference that it was not rendering native HTML/CSS elements. Chrome showed IE - with a browser that still was nearly 300x slower at element rendering and now less secure. Yet here we are years later, and developers are just a stupid and MS is left with a choice... Let more web platforms leave Windows/Edge behind by digging more into Chromium only features, or jump into the mix, and try to fix Chromium and steer it back out of the ditch. Secondarily, at this way, users determined to cling to Chrome won't be getting as screwed over, and won't get caught in a situation where Google owns them. Chromium has some really BIG issues in model and implementation, and right now, Microsoft is seeing more malware and exploits coming in from users THROUGH CHROME that any other entry point. At the very least, Microsoft needs to be actively involved in Chromium for security reasons alone, because Google doesn't seem to give a crap, and outside a few people in the 'Chromium' community, the heavy lifting and more mathematical applied security concepts are just not getting done. So far, Microsoft has brought a lot of features to Chromium and Chrome, give them another few years, and it just might be as secure and fast as Edge. (So, Firefox is good, but MS already has a 'great' product - the problem is with Chromium itself, its user base and the developers targeting their Apps and content to use it, which is the key right now.)

    Why don't they just use Microsoft Mathematics, it's way more advanced, it even shows steps for derivatives, integration, and has MS Word integration. I don't think enough people know about MS Mathematics!

    So you're saying its like just because others got an education, why bother you get one? This isn't about Google maps. This is Bing maps.

    I gotta laugh at Google, you know Xbox and Sony have been cooking up a game streaming service for awhile now. Google will ditch Stadia after few years just like their 101 messaging apps

    "iMac is by far the best desktop in the world" You mean " iMac is by far the best desktop in our world" (that is, Apple's world). These guys - still guzzling down the kool-aid they're peddling.

    I'll continue to think that the Outlook icon is the wrong color as long as it's a similar blue to the Word icon. Years ago, Outlook was a light orange that stood out on its own, and was easy to spot, without even looking directly at it.

    Any chance it'll support basic UI scaling? When Steam first came out, my monitors were at a much lower resolution, they were smaller overall, and my eyes were 20 years younger. I still catch myself hitting ctrl-+ from time to time when I need to read through their store pages. I may spend more time using and reading through their app if I didn't have to lean forward and squint. Steam has always had a ton of content and features, but the UX has lagged for so long. It baffles me that for company whose primary experience point with customers is through this one app, that they haven't given it more love over the years.

    They shouldn't even store an unencrypted password anywhere in their system. The fact that there are plain text passwords stored at all is incredible.

    Microsoft has longer history of ditching products, google just removed redundant apps but Microsoft on the other hand closed windows phone, band, groove online, edge... Really? Let's see a few ditched Google projects: Google Glass Project Titan Drone Broadband Google Waves Picasa Hangouts Google Buzz / Google+ Google Notebook Google Helpouts Google Site Search Search appliances Google Moderator Bump and Flock Currents Bufferbox Google Schemer Chrome Kill Switch Google Facial recognition

    They are selling "aspirational devices" which have always been marketed with intangible hyperbole. Nothing new, and in fairness it's only annoying if it annoys you. I filter that crap out and just evaluate the product, service and benefits to me.

    Don't generalize about internet speeds in rest of world. FWIW, I got better speeds in various countries compared to my home in New York. Game streaming isn't new, but it'll be interesting to see how this is implemented (see how low latency it is). They're making some bold claims, so I'm curious about how this is going to scale out.

    Eh, it's nothing special for the cash back portion and there's no sign up bonus (so this is worse than market offering). However since this is Apple, everyone is going to praise this and say this is innovative :\

    Do you eat the same type of food everyday? We have choices, and when you can't find something good on google try another search engine beside google. You will be surprised.

    Not even close. IINM it's completely legal for the chinese government to tell a company to put surveillance software in their products. It's part of their law. It's actually mandatory for stuff sold in china itself. The US government can only dream of having such power and free rein over businesses. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Room_641A wake up and smell the coffee, stop believing in your fake dream utopia.

    Raising hand. Yes, you list me in the fanboy camp. Speaking for myself, I've made a pretty decent living, not to mention raising a family, contracted and built a house from the blueprint stage, bought many cars over the years working in and around the Microsoft vision via certification. I don't know what part of the internet your business model derived, but if you think "trickery" was the Microsoft model, you truly don't know Microsoft.

    Why is this still a problem? After all the breaches, all the hacks, leaks, etc... of other companies. There is zero excuse anymore. Large company or not.

    Their dedication to expanding Azure's global footprint is what has me rooting for MS. I'm rooting for competition Better/more choice for consumers.

    Ya don't think so, A great deal of Canadians don't even have fast enough internet for this or data plans that won't cap out with streaming HD with all the game hours. Let alone other country's like Africa or India.

    You know, if they didn't try to charge iPhone X prices for the flagships, they'd sell more of those to begin with. I grabbed my OnePlus 6T for $600, new, SD845, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and dual SIM as a bonus. If others an release such a device for such a price, why are Samsung, and google, going to charge an extra $200 or so?

    Found on twitter but how to install it: 1) download the file 2) open a cmd prompt as admin 3) navigate to directory file was downloaded 4) run the following command: MicrosoftEdgeSetup.exe /install "appguid={65C35B14-6C1D-4122-AC46-7148CC9D6497}" [edit] appears to be hanging on downloading the rest of the binaries. Seems to be pointing to a URL inside the MS network which is not available.

    As long as Epic continue to buy exclusivity, I won't support their business. Competition is fine, anti consumer behaviour is not.

    They really aren't winning any fans with their exclusives. But they probably don't care, it'll make them money. I wouldn't be as bothered if their client weren't absolute crap.
