  • Actually you can add "Subscribe via Spotify" in the "Subscribe to the podcast" section as Windows Central Podcast is available on Spotify
  • Looks like Win32 support will eventually end up as an optional subsystem like POSIX support, and maybe have Windows 7 and Windows 10 flavours. And if so, then why not also beef up the Linux support so that it is not just possible to run Linux command line utilities but GUI too? In other words make Windows 10 into a multi-ecosystem base with personalities that can be installed. But each of those personalities must, instead of taking over a whole display, just put its windows into the same native display space used by the other personalities.
  • Might Sets and its entanglement with Edge lead to the EU forcing Microsoft to separate the two?
  • Never discount the folks who condemn something without trying it. [[ They caused serious damage to Windows 8.x and 10. All that talk of Fisher-Price Toys from people whose brains were so washed that they could not see that they get the same thing on their Android and iOS start screens, in fact worse, cause those aren't live. ]] Basically it came down to the emotion of hatred. Microsoft seems prone to such biased destruction.
  • Phones getting expensive? Yeah. But my Lumia 650, albeit in March 2016, cost me only £160, has a 5-inch AMOLED display, etc. This year I had to disgust myself by buying a Nokia 6 Android phone, for which I paid £200, but no AMOLED, and Android sucks big-time, slow, clunky, ugly, badly organised, makes me want to vomit. I am not in the league for spending £1K on a phone, and I can't see the point, for something that has a life of about 2 years. If Andromeda comes out, and costs a lot, it better be because it will last me more than 2 years.
  • Great podcast as ALWAYS kind regards Richard U.K
  • Surface Go fake news? Is CNN talking about something?
  • everything against MS is fake news to :))
  • I think 4 gigs of ram workOK for most basic computer tasks including ms office suite.
    it's multitasking too much that slows down any computer. if a person buy a 4 gig
    Surface Go and later buys a micro SD card for extra storage and does less multitasking.
    they will enjoy using a Surface Go for basic computer tasks
