161

In late 2007 Asus kicked off a new segment of personal computers called netbooks with their Eee PC line. The devices initially ran Linux, but later brought Windows into the mix.

68

The official launch of Windows 8.1 might not be till the 18th of October, but Microsoft is continually updating their own apps in preparation for the big day. One of those apps that’s been reimagined from the ground up is Xbox Music. When we first played with Xbox Music on Windows 8 last year it completely broke our experience and hearts as to the direction Microsoft was headed.

99

If we we’re clinical psychologists (we’re not) we might suggest that Microsoft is suffering from dissociative identity disorder, something also known as multiple personality disorder. The company has been doing 180s on products and announcements more frequently than anyone one company should.

And today, the most recent example – developers can now download Windows 8.1 RTM via TechNet or MSDN.
