+ - More Eye Candy Coming to Windows 10

Submitted by jones_supa
jones_supa (887896) writes "Microsoft is expected to release a new build of the Windows 10 Technical Preview in the very near future, according to their own words. The only build so far to be released to the public is 9841 but the next iteration will likely be in the 9860 class of releases. With this new build, Microsoft has polished up the animations that give the OS a more comprehensive feel. When you open a new window, it flies out on to the screen from the icon and when you minimize it, it collapses back in to the icon on the taskbar. It is a slick animation and if you have used OS X, it is similar to the one used to collapse windows back in to the dock."

Yes, there was no end to the whine, there where bugs, badly designed UI, etc.

Well, to recap, the basic arguments against GNOME2 were that it significantly reduced configurability over GNOME1, that it was bloated, and that the "Applications / Places / System" menu structure felt uncomfortable. I guess one could relatively easily dig up the large Slashdot discussions where all the complaining takes place.

microsoft decided to log all your key strokes.

I don't think it was never proven that they specifically log keystrokes. For the W10TP they only wrote an EULA that says "all your data belongs to us".

Well, that can mean anything, but in practice, I suspect they will probably just log things like hardware profiles, performance values, app usage statistics, crash logs, things like that.

I am mildly concerned about potential reaction of the parodee, who has been known to be a little heavy handed when it comes to things like that. In short, I want to make sure that the hosting company won't flake out just because of potential complaints. I checked some companies and their TOS and AUPs all seem to have weird ass restrictions ( Arvixe, for example, has a list of unacceptable material that happens to list RPGs and MUDS ).

I live in US. Parodee in Poland.

What would you recommend?"
