Windows

Last October at the Windows 10 event in New York City, Microsoft officially unveiled the Windows 10 Creators Update, codenamed "Redstone 2". At the event, Microsoft stated that the update will be released in "early 2017" but we didn't know when exactly the update will arrive.

Until now, anyway.

Per my sources, Microsoft will be releasing the Windows 10 Creators Update this April.

The more regular, smaller updates Windows gets now is such a huge step up from the monolithic releases of yore.

Windows Modern is a complete mystery to me. They could've updated the looks of W7, implemented some new features and polished the shit out what already worked, replaced the kernel and whatnot. Would've been effing magic. Instead they decide to build the titanic. And patch it up as they go. As i said, i'm too old for this shit...


It seems to me that the dev tools creators have too much leverage in the internal power hierarchy at Microsoft. And they only recognize "OOH, shiny!!!!"

Back when Windows Phone was still relevant, the damage was mostly contained to that platform. However, it seems that even the toolchain devs @ MS understand that that ship has sailed and they require more visibility.

Just yesterday, the "modern" start menu/taskbar hanged on me for whatever reason for half an hour or so. Every other program worked, alt-tabbing worked but that was it. Not the first time that has happened as well. But, hey, the "modern" is finished, lets chase another pie in the sky, for example, initiate a tug-of-war with Apple over the mindshare of artists!
