A couple years ago, Lenovo announced its plans to build a "retro" ThinkPad that would resurrect design elements of ThinkPads past as an homage to the brand's long history.

That ThinkPad is now real. Check out the ThinkPad 25, sold to commemorate 25 years of ThinkPads.

I'm just going to leave this here for you lovely ThinkPad people. This isn't for me, but I'm not here to ruin your party.

Do clean up after yourselves.

The sad state of software is real. Operating system manufacturers have moved their focus away from the desktop, and they were the ones everybody were following when it came to application look, feel, or even feature set, not to mention providing all the needed underlying technologies and APIs. In the Windows ecosystem there is literally nothing to work on, as the entire Win32 API has had a deprecation hammer circling over it for years, and every one of the multiple attempts at replacing it (beginning with Windows Forms) has been a colossal failure.
