Even when Microsoft copies, they can't even copy correctly. The picture speaks for itself.
Microsoft already had the idea of Windows Store for Windows 8 a year ago when their plan was leaked. Their problem is getting it first market, and even then it might not be as successful as the Mac App Store.http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/new...-in-august.arsedit: Looks like bettieblue beat me to it.
I am curious. What did they copy from ios5?
Please excuse my ignorance. In what ways is Silverlight garbage? Compared to what? Please remember Silverlight is managed code.
I don't see how it's a fair comparison to compare something that was built in 2004 vs 2008. The technology (processor, cooling methods, battery technology, etc...) in 2008 leapfrogged by many folds compared to 2004. The processor architecture change from Pentium M to Core 2 was nothing short of magical. Everything got smaller, cheaper, faster, and more efficient (less heat = less cooling required). The Sony X505 was the true innovator prior with the tampered design. And...
The wedge design was from Sony back in 2004 with the Sony X505.http://www.flickr.com/photos/airwave...n/photostream/http://www.flickr.com/photos/airwave...n/photostream/http://www.weblogsinc.com/common/ima...42647363857573http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djxLKQQEf34
Isn't MS doing the thing that Apple did with iOS? Apple derived iOS from OS X (Darwin & XNU kernel). Now, Microsoft is doing the same thing and deriving the NT subsystems for ARM. Anything that's not suitable for tablet touchscreen are removed. The UI is rewritten from scratch for touchscreen usage, like iOS. The ARM version of Windows 8 doesn't run any of the legacy Windows apps, but it'll use the new app model (called appx) that's portable for ARM and x86.
Can you quantify by what you mean "hamper it"? The last thing MS would do is rewriting the NT kernel because it makes no sense whatsoever. Rewriting a kernel is an attempt in suicide. They have updated the NT kernel, removed dependences and made it much more modularized with Windows 7 as part of the MinWin efforts. The NT kernel in Longhorn IS part of the updated Windows Vista and Windows 7. Exactly what makes Mac OS X more scalable and flexible? By what criteria do you...
I think the pressure is on Apple and Google to support the feature. If you read the article carefully, Google has not implemented the do-not-track feature, and Apple will release it with Safari on Liion. Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9, both, already have the feature implemented. Firefox 4 = implemented & released for public Internet Explorer 9 = implemented & released for public Safari for Lion = implemented (still in development) Chrome = unknown, not yet
Does it need user's password to do the initial install? The article was very vague in this aspect.
