Don't worry :), I was just kidding, it simply could have been better worded :lol:.

@Dybia

Is your post in English? :dubbio:I cannot make head or tails of it. :w00t:

Maybe you could try to be more verbose and try to explain what you wanted to say.

And now, something actually on topic:

Yep, good to know, translated:

means:

It's something that has been introduced in Windows 10

as there is no "between".

jaclaz

You're right, syntactically, though to be fair there have been several iterations of Windows 10.  I guess I was thinking "between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 version whatever the article writer has".

Just try and imagine, "there is no version."

Well, with time you will be able to feel the continuous flow of the ever-changing[1] nature of the OS, there is no place in space of time that is not swept by the currents of telemetry and nothing is ever the same as it was before as the updates keep everything in this flux of uncertainty, everywhere is nowhere and nowhere is everywhere ...

Btw Windows 8/8.1 only became decent IMHO after Microsoft left it alone. The hell from Windows Update was also offered to it via several large updates after the original release of 8.1. Windows 10 being the "last version" will never be left alone by them.

Except in Phoenix, AZ with the "Heat Dome" that suspends the "where" and the "why for" with "certainty" as we all know,,,,, :cool:  Who knew that water could fall out of the sky?  Except here it looks like the water is falling but then it isn't!  This "flux" thing is difficult to understand.  Probably an OS (Outer Space) thing.

Clintons justice department went after ms.

Think settled out of court for $200 million?

Seems to me, ms is justified, giving it back to the consumers...

I got mine....so doesn't concern me.

Like to fiddle with ms junk, just something to do....

On other news:

http://www.techrepublic.com/article/why-windows-phone-users-are-now-a-serious-security-risk-to-their-employers/

Quote

Windows Phone is dead. On July 11, Microsoft ended support for the Windows Phone 8.1, effectively killing off the Windows Phone brand. The Windows 10 Phone is still around, but the company hasn't gone out of its way to add new features.

Being that the phone is no longer supported, it loses out on key services offered by Microsoft. "There will be no new security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates," a Microsoft support page said.

And of all Windows Phone users, more than 70% are using Windows Phone 8.1 (which is now unsupported). 30% is on Windows 10 Mobile, so Microsoft did not have the same strategy for Windows Phone as for Windows desktop. Microsoft isn't actively pushing Windows 10 Mobile, you need an app to update to the OS and most Windows Phone 8.1 users don't know about that. And I thought Microsoft was all about security, like with Windows XP EOL.

Oh right, Windows Phone 8.1 gets continuous support until 2017, gets discontinued and it's immediately a security risk, yet most people carry around Androids with version 4.0 or less and no mention of it. :thumbdown

Clover Trail?

Any among:

Sorry pal, you chose processors that are not anymore supported by Windows 10. :ph34r:

One of those things they don't mention in the highlights of the updates, given the emphasis on the UWP landscape, BitLocker got some enhancements with Windows 10, XTS-AES encryption algorithm and according to this, the encryption process is supposedly faster in Creators Update. I wonder if someone knowledgeable tested that claim.

Either way, the mindset behind Win10 development isn't the same like it was with Win7, one of the reasons the OS is still odd at places. 3D Paint and new emojis, one of those main highlights of the Creators Update. Gets one to think they're running comedy show at MS. I think highlighting actual core improvements would be a good idea. Maybe with the next feature update? No one would oppose if they fixed things they broke that worked in older versions.

Another thing that comes to mind. Will classic Explorer see any changes in the future? There's already UWP File Explorer present in Creators Update:

explorer shell:AppsFolder\c5e2524a-ea46-4f67-841f-6a9465d9d515_cw5n1h2txyewy!App

It needs some work before it would be equivalent functionality wise to the classic Explorer.

UWP File Explorer...  Ugh.

The time is approaching when it will either be necessary to abandon all hope of using Win 10 or embrace it for all its unwanted directions (cloud, poor efficiency, never finished).

Who would imagine you could replace things with...  lesser things and that could somehow be "acceptable"?
