Great podcast, really thinking about delaying laptop upgrade due to 850 arm
Windows is full of device-independent bugs that have been present for years. The taskbar and notification area is a mess in multi-display environment. I have reported it two years ago. Nothing has changed. The same thing happens in every single instance and device I have ever seen out there. Nobody can defend this that it is device-dependent. And the problem is not that there is a bug, the probelm is not that the bug is there for two years plus, the problem is that there are channels to handle it, and none of the channels seem to work. This is the sign of the chaos that is going on in Microsoft and that produced that bug in the first place. There is simply something very wrong.
During world cup 2018 season, complain on hardware and software may not solely motivated by IT problem. Peace....
boring. talk Andromeda
how about not deleting my comment, WC?
I see two comments Also, if we were to delete your comment ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
WOW. Daniel, you're really into trying to make as many enemies on the internet as possible any more. You really might try rethinking your strategy when your only engagement with commenters here and reddit are Trump-style attacks. SAD
Slightly over exaggerated, I've had disagreements with Daniel but Trump style attacks is a bit much. He's normally, at the very least, got manners, which is admirable in this internet world of hate, kind regards to you from the U.K
So maybe you can explain why Zac tweeted my first post
and then it got deleted from here. After that I came and wrote it back? Magic I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
News just got a little acrylic add on fast ring/ update it taskbar image removing the red. There is also a link to the iOS and Android Apps
Awesome podcast, thanks guys, really enjoyed it, kind regards Richard U.K
