Why bother? This place has gone severely downhill in recent years. It's gone from being an actual news source for people in the industry to basically a linux fanboi circle jerk for shitting on Apple or Microsoft as much as possible.
Look at my UID. I barely bother to log in here any more and rarely even open the site any more because there's nothing here of value any more. If i wanted to read idiots just basically trying to crap on hardware they've never used, i'd go read phoronix.
Sweet, where do i sign?!
"DO NOT WANT" tag on story is appropriate.
The big selling point for Microsoft is that Windows will run all your busted old shit. So more busted old shit is constantly created and ported to the current MS platform to become the new 'busted old shit' that people need to be able to run on new machines.
Until this cycle can be broken, there is zero incentive for microsoft to fully commit to any new architecture, as their major selling point will go away.
