It'll be interesting to see what Microsoft does with subsequent releases of Windows. 8.1 Update 1 brought some more "desktop-like" functionality to the New Interface ("Metro," though Microsoft isn't allowed to call it that) and either Windows 9, Windows 8.2 or Windows 8.1 Update 2 (whatever it gets called) is already slated to bring back the start menu, and they're making it worse (from my perspective, at least) by introducing windowed New Interface applications.

That and the start menu as you knew it in Windows 7 is literally never coming back. What's going to be in Windows 9 is a small rectangle that shows up at the bottom of the screen and shows Start screen tiles. You're not getting the Control Panel link back (though you can add control panel, run, et al as links on the Start Screen) and I'm going to lose my giant 1920x1200 launcher that shows every program my computer <i>has</i> in a single go.


What exactly do you mean by that? Microsoft has already demonstrated a start menu (not just a miniature start screen) with a striking resemblance to the legacy start menu, including the control panel being there.

After OS X Leopard my OS X usage began to wane heavily, I finally sold my Retina MacBook Pro after the Mavericks update would kernel panic the system constantly with no cause, reOSing didn't work and I didn't want to have to revert to an older release, so I basically said " screw it " and moved to BSD.

It would appear I've mis-remembered the images. Though, that's a Windows "9"/Threshhold thing and we have Windows 8.1 Update 2 in the pipeline, and just like that thing where the Windows 8 we saw in the beta wasn't quite like the final product, Microsoft may fine-tune that new start menu.

It'll be interesting to see if whatever the "new start menu" is gets the new Windows 7 contingent to move forward, or if we get the same situation I've seen with Windows XP users still on XP with no antivirus or firewall (on purpose!) to this day because they feel entitled to Microsoft simply never changing anything.

That's a no ! You are 68000% wrong.

There are Windows 2000 users who refuse to change because :

1) No newer version of windows brings anything of value to the table

2) Mickeysoft and the entire United States Imaginary Property contingent can take their "Digital (w)Rongs Management" and stuff it up their incompetent worthless Forrest Hayes asses. The American KGB is not going to get my assistance in putting their busybody noses into my underwear drawer. They can take their patents on black rectangles with Roman corners and put them where the sun don't shine

Period. Full stop.

You idiots can do as you please but some of us jews don't line up happily for that cool free tattoo.

Well, I hate to toot my own horn but Communist, yup. I even have a poster of Mao on the wall at home, like a lot of old people here do. And an Imaginary Property thief, well that goes without saying.

If I'd been a little quicker I coulda got my Sex Offender certificate, I rubbed a 16 year old's boobs and unzipped her jeans when we were in high school. But she died a year or so ago so even with repressed memories, that chance is gone :(

I'm feeling a lot of envy of the kids today; when I was in high school there was no chance the cops would be able to get a warrant, take me into the hospital, dope me up and get a shot of my wanker "to compare." Lucky lucky kids (do people really have a lot of sex with goats these days ?)

Altho one girl I knew did mess around with the boy's p.e. coach, he took a bunch of photos of her and developed them in the school darkroom, then forgot a few. Oops. Nice knockers. I mean really nice. Didn't seem to affect her much, she just laughed it off. How callous, the least she could have done was attempt suicide, sue the school district, go onto the teevee circuit :(

The rest, well, poop. From the hilltop estates overlooking the glittering Monterey Bay, where their five-bedroom homes are on the market for $4.2 million, the executives from Sun, Apple, Google and Alix List know that we are all jews, niggers, welfare queens, dagos, wops, drains upon society. That's like having an MBA, you know ? Worthless.

Back to the sixties, the karma did make me laugh - “She’s cold. Ice cold,” said Santa Cruz police Deputy Chief Steve Clark. “The only person Alix Tichelman cares about is Alix Tichelman.”

"Tichelman, instead of helping, picked up her things — including the heroin and needles — and tidied up the boat. She stepped over his body several times, including one time to swig down a half-finished glass of wine. As she left, she reached back in to lower a blind to hide the body."

Turn about, eh ? :D

Does it tell anyone anything that this 'high-end' whore couldn't even get a job as a $5-a-whack pink barber-shop girl in China, while the innovative, generous practical team leader people-person highly-educated Sun / Apple / Google executive couldn't even tie himself off ? What a flocking loser. And there's 200 more just like him in her little black book :P

"Forrest will be remembered above all as a loving husband and father. More than anything else he enjoyed spending time with his family at home and on his boat. His brilliant mind, contagious smile, and warm embrace will be missed and cherished in memories by his friends and family."

Well, yeah, maybe. But we do know he loved spending time on his boat, he did he did. Planning more innovations to help drive the economy, most likely. Another Apple Innovator, saviors of our society.

Yup, commodore, to the elite we're all jews and niggers. No extra credit :(

I assume you deliberately misinterpreted the Holocaust reference in hope of laffs. Anyhoo...

So far as "niche" goes, you want The Dead Milkmen's Now Everbody's Me and the left-handed lesbian midget eskimo albino student union at about 2 minutes into the song.

Sooooo....

After reading this http://arstechnica.com/apple/2014/07/ex ... ogether/2/ it seems that neither of my machines (2006 mac pro, 2010 mac air) can run the headlining features of yosemite such as handoff and airdrop. Phone calls will work, but airdrop should have worked from osx to ios years ago when it first came out.

Sheeeit... did not realize my MBA was already so old. :P At least both still run 10.9 and 10.6 just fine.

10.10 looks dreadful in my eyes as UX designer, it actually just ugliest OSX i've seen till date. Now gone all the affordance and why they use Helvetica Neue for the system font. It looks cheap and out of place for one simple fact that helvetica neue does not look good in small size. Maverick is my bread and butter

So, I haven't had anywhere near as much face-time with it as I would have liked, but I recently tried Mac OS X 10.10 public beta on a 2008 MacBook Pro with a 2.4GHz Core2Duo on the 965 chipset, 4 gigs of ram, and a GeFORCE 8600mGT graphics card. It also has Ye Olde spinning hard disk. It's a work computer I'm basically only keeping it around as a take-home box should the occassion come up, until such a time as the GPU kicks the bucket.

Anyway, it's actually pretty good. There's essentially a single bug I've been able to uncover, which is that in the upgrade from 10.6.8 (which apparently isn't technically supported, but it worked flawlessly and happened very quickly) one of my long-named VPN connections (something like "MMM VPN (PPTP)") has caused the icons in the list of network connections to move out of the display area.

It's fast, I'm trained not to use the resize buttons so I haven't looked at those yet, and I'm pleased with the visual effect of the re-texturing of Mac OS X (which started but wasn't finished in 10.9) has been completed.

Of course, for the entire time I've owned a Mac OS X computer (from 2003 to today, with one or two year-long spots where I didn't) I was almost always running the most recent version, so I'll certainly put this on my personal mac mini when it gets released.

I'll put my face in front of it for some more time soon and post it to my personal blog, but my main reason for doing it was to see what the performance was like. It's good, and it's fairly fast. It's no slower than 10.6.8 was on that hardware, and I feel qualified to make that assessment, given that I upgraded from 10.6.8 to 10.10 and used them both on the same hardware on the same day.

Hah, I see what you may have done there! I'm on the 68k Mac scene! If I were known for Apple II stuff, would you have written that I was 6502% wrong? Please tell me you would have.

Okay. I mean, I don't agree with this, but anything I write will trigger such a huge response that I don't even consider it worth it "for the viewing audience at home."

I'm reasonably looking forward to it.. I became a Mac owner (again) last year with a purchase of a MacBook Air and that machine has surpassed my expectations in every way. It's brilliant. I do actually seem to be gelling with OSX much better this time around, after buying an iMac several years ago and quickly getting tired of it - that shipped with Leopard.

I think it was helped in no small part by Windows 8 which aggravated me so badly, I was desperate for an alternative. Windows 8.1 has improved things marginally but fundamentally I think the whole product is a steaming pile of confusion. OSX (regardless of version) is just such a clean, fast, well thought out product in comparison.
