Comment I guess they don't have any thing better to do (Score 5, Insightful) 118

Not like there's a billion other things that 10 needs fixed.

The GUI is a confusing cluster fuck.
Windows "Apps" are a joke, and need to be killed.
Windows Update continues to be horribly broken.
20+ years of bloat keeps stacking up higher and higher.

But M$ decides they need to reinvent the wheel..er paint. Genius idea there!

Comment I'm calling bullshit (Score 1) 585

M$ said the same thing with Skylake on Win7. And Skylake works fine on Win7, you just need to install the Intel INF drivers and the proper usb 3.0 drivers.

So unless Intel refuses to makes their drivers for Kaby Lake work on Win7 (and I don't think Intel is quite that stupid), this is a non issue.

Or to be more accurate, its more FUD and outright bullshit from M$.

I quit when pandas started roaming Azeroth. What was Bliz even thinking?

But after that I went to a private server to try older expansions and it was a lot of fun at first but the experience became altogether corrosive.

These days I really enjoy Path of Exile, but it would have no use for Curse apart from the wiki for reading content about the game.

Having a company thrive from curating game information frees up game developers to put their time in the game itself and leave the understanding of mechanics to a third party.

This is a double edged sword I think. It would be better for games companies to do it themselves, however the promotion of the game then also gets spearheaded by the third parties to drive their interests further.

If you use a game that has a lot of mods like World of Warcraft, Curse updates your mods when they release new patches and it's a pretty big hassle. However, if you run backdated mods then you can't necessarily configure Curse not to overwrite your old folders. It would have been pretty easy to write an ignore folder feature but Curse refused to bother when I was using it a long time ago.

Other than that, you pay a premium to have a nice forum avatar from what I can tell.

We have a lot of rabbits living around our neighborhood that have destroyed many trees and gardens.

They would probably chew this robot and attack the garden daily unless..... I wonder if the company will create a defensive mode for this? Strobe lights and water or air gun could blast animals breaking the perimeter?
