    Lol, like anyone was ever expecting Google to admit anything XD

    Good to see others recognizing the fact that Google is the new old Microsoft.

    No, the iPhone is for people with more money than sense. But not for long, because you know what they say about fools and money.

    Skipping Release Preview ring was stupid. I was surprised actually at how quick this got released, considering how long it took them to push the April 2018 Update out to production.

    I have added the sad reaction so we can appropriately feel with our fellow Neowinians. I hope you all join in being sad with me when the time calls for it.

    That was only the marketing hype from Apple when they moved to a Unix foundation. Do not blindly trust salespeople. First, Unix is a concept, a philosophy about how an OS should work, and a set of specifications for code portability, not a specific implementation or quality insurance. It is perfectly possible to write a very unsecure but conforming implementation of Unix, as it is possible to write a Un*x flavor that isn't compliant with the specifications (and there are several levels of specs, like POSIX, System V, and SUS). The specifications part gets even more messy when you realize that most Unix development is moving to Linux, which is Unix-like, but not Unix certified, and many new Un*x code isn't easily portable to other Unix systems anymore. This was the reason Windows moved from its subsystem for Unix (aka Interix, SFU, SUA), which was POSIX-compliant, to its new subsystem for Linux (WSL or LXSS), which instead aims at being binary compatible with the Linux kernel itself. Second point is we can challenge Unix design concepts. While it did have some great ideas, there is no reason to consider it to be the best OS design we can ever achieve. Remember it was created in the early 70s. Later, VMS in late 70s and then Windows NT in the early 90s both took inspiration from it, but decided to go with a more modern design, notably based on kernel objects instead of files. Modern Un*x is slowly moving away from the "everything is a file" to a more API-based system... basically the choice Microsoft made in the late 80s when abandoning Xenix, their leading Unix for PC, to work on Windows NT, the foundation for modern Windows. "The Power of UNIX" campaign for OSX from Apple in 2001 was ridiculous when you know history... Microsoft already had "The Power of UNIX" with XENIX, the most common Unix system for personal computers from the mid to late 80s, and already moved on a whole decade before Apple "discovered" it in 1999, almost 30 years after everybody else. I don't see Sun/Oracle bragging about Solaris, HP pushing HP-UX, IBM selling AIX, or movies crediting SGI for their IRIX-based graphics workstations... only Apple seems to believe UNIX is a modern buzzword in the 21st century.

    Well, they just made sure I for certain won't be buying it then. Only reason I was buying CoD games was campaign. Without it existing, I see no reason to buy it.

    Most Apple fans are so deep into the ecosystem/golden jail they don't even care anymore if they buy overpriced, low quality and unreliable hardware (as demonstrated multiple times by Louis Rossmann, who was sued by Apple for repairing Apple products in his shop in NYC, for a few bucks, where Apple was charging $1000+ for the same repair) Here's a VERY enlightening story/report from CBC in Canada about Apple and how they screw their customers: https://www.cbc.ca/news/thenational/complete-control-apple-accused-of-overpricing-restricting-device-repairs-1.4859099 (Video at the end, 18 minutes of pure entertainment and facepalms)

    If this happens we may already have seen peak Chrome. There are too many influential users that will switch browsers, then convince friends, family, and customers to follow suit. Not blocking all ads tends to get browsers hijacked. It seems like Google's motivation is to increase profits, in spite of whatever PR they put out to justify it. Let''s see how that works out for them over time.

    There is a small part of me that hopes this tanks. There are so many streaming services out there already which means that if you want access to absolutely everything you'd be shelling out a lot of money each month to get it. We don't need another service.

    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.

    "better understand how customers value Netflix" - translating to "let's see how much we can raise the price before too many users complain, then we back down one level and set the new price".

    Political correctness at its dumbest. I'm a child from the 80s and I used to play "cowboys and Indians" with my friends back in the days, with "real" plastic replica revolvers. I'm now a 36yo family man, and I'm still not a murderer or a violent person. How is a gun emoji supposed to transform people into violent mass killers again? That's some pretty insane SJW bullsh*t right there!

    If uBlock Origin goes, I go. Simple as that. Honestly this just feels like yet another tactic to get me to buy their ridiculous YouTube Red service.

    So, let me get this straight. Open source developers are concerned that MS will have access to their code? Ok....what’s the issue again?

    I'm hoping Microsoft looked at the same dictionary I own, found the word Lean, proceeded to remove Cortana, telemetry, Microsoft Store Apps, et cetera, while making it available to regular consumers. I'd purchase in a heartbeat. Yes, purchase!

    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.

    Hmm... Not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand I think the whole flat earth theory deserves to be obscured, but on the other hand I'm not really comfortable with some corporation deciding what "theories" are and aren't allowed to be spread.

    Is it Mozilla's engine that's bad or is it because devs are building sites optimised for Blink? Their engine is bad, it's only slightly better than Safari and that says a lot. It's lacking basic HTML5 features that other browsers had for years and the JavaScript engine is the same story. Mozilla engine doesnt lack any HTML5 and JS features, Google implements features that are still not standardised and make you change your site every time the spec changes. We have built a lot of HTML5 sites and web applications and Chrome is the offender by not supporting standards because they have their own version of the truth instead of whats signed off until the actual sign off happens. And some web devs run around changing their site to Googles idiotic approach.

    Why is Gab the only social platform held responsible for actions of others? Did any of you know that the last shooter was on Twitter, Facebook and Gab and only Gab got their service terminated by the host, payment systems booted them and they've been banned from app stores for ages. Why one set of rules for some and other set for the others? Just because Gab provides a platform, that doesn't mean they endorse anything. And Gab isn't pretending with monumental virtue signaling how they filter content like others do. That's not their job and never should be. If you don't want to see something or something offends you, it's YOUR job to block that content yourself. What offends you doesn't offend me. So, why should my content be filtered and censored because you're such a weak snowflake you need to be shielded from frigging words? That's the problem with social networks. Twitter drove me insane, had all their filtering junk disabled and it kept on bitching how I may see "sensitive" content. I don't freaking care, I've turned everything off and you continue to bitch at me.

    The edges on all controls make this design look more dated than modern. It makes me think of the vision of the future, in the 80's.
