Looks like Touch bar can still be handy for someone that never used it in productivity apps:
Adding that with haptic feedbacks sounds like an interesting way to utilize it.
This says the most of what I’m feeling.
I guess they finally understand that Intel were just as slow as their current speed of refresh... Their 10nm were way too ambitious, which is why they just keep optimizing the 14nm ever and ever. Then again, 14nm have its limit, and every new processors are just getting hotter and hotter. Their microarchitecture haven't change since Skylake either because the same reason (Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, (and refresh?), Cannonlake), making it the longest cycle in their history.

Well that’s the kind of thing for xfce. I’m running Linux Lite on my old laptop and is virtually no lag. I customized the xfce to be more like a Mac rather than Windows (which having a global menu, put window buttons on the left, having the main menu on the top-left), but it’s complet up to what the user want it to be.
You still have to type a lot shell commands when necessary though, but as long you’re getting used to it, it’s pretty efficient. Wine (the program that run Windows applications) works better than my Mac.
re: Wine... do you mean it runs Windows apps better than using something like BootCamp or Parallels on Mac?
In other words, you run Linux, but then mostly use Windows apps?
I’d think that butterfly mechanism will lasts longer than those previous generations, giving that the rubbers aging quicker than stainless steels.
That said, there are switches that’s more complex than the butterfly, yet they still lasts very long if you can take care of them, so I guess it’s primarily the production quality that kills it, not so much on the design.
