  • Looking like a Man of the Cloth there, Dan!
  • lol, I mean I DO like the show "Preacher" a lot and Jessie's style...
  • keep working on sets. wait until it's Really good before releasing it. maybe it takes a year, that's fine. features can be added.
    I love Windows 10. wish they'd do more with fluent design
  • Possibly delayed ≠ "shelved" Steve 🙄
  • Verge: MS will not talk about Lite at Build, maybe later in the year
    MSPU: MS put Lite on hold to concentrate on other things
    Steve Adams: Lite & WCOS are shelved
  • Their metric probably showed that their win32 old school apps like Paint and Notepad still get way more usage than the bizarre Paint3D. I think we can now say that UWP is going nowhere. From game clients to Office, Teams, the new Edge, iTunes, Spotify, Visual Studio, Adobe products, 7-ZIP etc are all win32. There seems to be only one UWP app that is actively developed with new features and that is OneNote. Curious to see if Microsoft even mentions UWP on Built next week :p
  • I'm rather disappointed to hear about the demise of Sets. As a developer who often has multiple windows open for various apps all related to the same project, it sounded like a really good idea. Admittedly, I never got ambitious enough to run any previews though.
