    Microsoft bashing is... Sometimes warranted. Ignoring their own "desktop consistency guidelines" to what, try to make it look "different"? Just bad policy. Show me someone who honestly thinks desktop usability is "new and improved". I love the system Windows is based on. I've been a Windows afficionado since the time of NT. Second to none the kernel is. Dave Cutler's design was so many decades ahead of its time and is still better than any version of Unix, IMHO. But it is not open and it is starting to look like we have already seen the best it could become. Today Windows development appears to have become about hanging all kinds of things on that solid kernel and calling them operating system improvements, because "perception is reality". Truth be told, even as a software developer I don't need cloud-integration. But Windows is no longer a system for developers. Microsoft envies Apple, and that is a very, very bad thing. -Noel

    For now you can have the old interface back by changing in about:config: general.useragent.override.youtube.com from: Mozilla/5.0 (%OS_SLICE% rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 PaleMoon/28.10.1a1 to: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html) That is, until Google kills it permanently... Screenshot [EDIT] Changed the first useragent value from the Linux one to the one in my XP virtual machine; sorry for that...

    I'll add GetActiveProcessorCount (plus associated functions GetActiveProcessorGroupCount, GetMaximumProcessorCount and GetMaximumProcessorGroupCount) once I get back to the x64 files. My x86 kernel32.dll is about 25% finished. I am holding off a wider release until the x86 files are completed and a few bugs are fixed.

    I'm lucky to have three powerful WIndows Workstations and one server at my disposal. I'm happy to be able to continue to run Windows 7 on one, Windows 8.1 on one, and Windows 10 on two of them, because I believe that gives me perspective. And finally I'm additionally fortunate to be able to make a number of virtual machines, because there's where risky testing can be done, with near zero consequences. In the past week I brought two of my hardware workstations up to Windows 10 v1909 build 18363.900 (June updates) and things are going pretty well I guess. It's still more a pleasure to use the desktop on my Win 8.1 system, frozen at a December 2017 update level (and measurably more efficient than the Win 10 systems at doing the same things). I also brought a VM up to Win 10 v2004 and that actually was a pretty smooth process, and it runs OK I guess, though it is more bloated than ever before and has more tendency to contact online servers (as detected by my non-standard firewall setup) via some new services. I sure wish I had some confidence that the engineering of Windows was going in the right direction. But from the most superficial (desktop appearance) to the murky, geeky depths (online comm observations, Explorer quirks, and a number of other things) it honestly just doesn't look like it's going anywhere except in a spiral around a whirlpool. Sigh. -Noel
