Start Again: Windows 10 Coming On July 29th

Windows 10 [official site] looks like one of the good versions of Windows, one you'll upgrade then stick with for years as Microsoft add guff to later versions that you couldn't possibly want - joining the likes of Windows 98 SE, 2000, XP, and 7.

Microsoft: “It’s Time To Talk About Gaming On Windows”

All you did was squeeze Games For Windows Live onto our lawn from some unspeakable orifice, then disappear back to your Xboxes and not-quite-right phones.

10 Days With Windows 10: Is It Worth Installing The Beta?

Even now, Microsoft's technical ambitions for Windows seem feeble compared to the grand vision it once had back in…

Where To Start? Windows 10 Announced For 2015

It's funny how quickly we'll all forget Windows 9. Even today, I'm wondering if it ever really happened. Did we really find lines from our e-mails scrawled across our walls in blood? It seems unlikely that the error alert sound was ever six minutes of inhuman chanting. I only know two people who say they clicked The Forbidden Shortcut and found wasp hives on their…
