Windows Development

I downloaded Visual Studio 2019 yesterday to test it out on Windows 11. The first thing that jumped out at me was the Visual Studio 2019 release. Why not 2021? The second thing I observed was that VS 2019 doesn’t contain any Windows 11 SDKs....

Microsoft Windows 11

Here is a breakdown of what you need to know. By the time Microsoft actually releases it, you will have totally forgotten all about it. That pretty much sums it up. Coming sometime in 2022. *Update: I got an email from Microsoft telling me that...

Why Microsoft Why?

Why doesn’t Microsoft just have (1) game? Why don’t you just put everything into (1) game? Why do you insist on having (3) different versions? If they are making hard copies or DVDs, it is more environmentally friendly to just have (1) version. Just venting.

Microsoft Edge Being Forced on Users

Sad. But true. I can’t believe this is still happening in 2020. This article mentions that Microsoft had a bad experience with forcing users to use their product before. It is shocking that they would try to do this again. Especially when Apple is now...

Outlook 2019

Microsoft Outlook Kudos

Minecraft Weirdness

The follow picture is a building I have constructed in Minecraft. I sealed up the building when I created it. The only way inside is by going through doors you have to open (they are not automatic). My question is how do horses end up...

Project Scorpio

Of course, I am keeping my eyes on this one. The official release of the new xbox gaming console will be later this year. Novemberish? Microsoft has an official site. There are a few sites that are offering up more details. Links below. TechRadar Pocket-lint...

Windows 8 Versus Mac OS X Thought

The Mac operating system has changed over the years but not in very dramatic ways. In fact, anyone who has used OS 9 will know exactly how to use OS X. If you have used Tiger (10.4) then you can use Mountain Lion (10.8) without...
