  • Apple's management doesn't want Nvidia support in macOS, and that's a bad sign for the Mac...

    If we put the potential conflicts between Apple and Nvidia managers aside, I'm thinking perhaps this is not only about supporting Mojave – it can also be about adding support for Nvidia's new Turing (RTX 2xxx) graphics cards. If I remember correctly it took quite some time for Pascal (GTX 9xx) graphics cards to get drivers for MacOS, maybe all we need is wait a bit more to get drivers that support both Mojave and RTX 2xxx GPU's?

  • Microsoft's new Surface Go is still not an iPad killer

    Windows, by itself, is not a bad operating system. In many respects, it is an engineering miracle that it works at all, given first principles that require it to support disparate hardware combinations.

    That may be the most gracious thing about Windows I've ever read here.
    I must say I agree that I’m impressed by Microsoft’s ability to make Windows 10 run on so many variants of hardware, especially concidering my recent experiences of getting the current version of Windows 10 to run on the first Mac Pro from 2006 (MacPro1,1).

    It works really well (with a more recent graphics card than it shippped with - GTX 460) and it’s a bit ironic since the by Apple last officially supported release of OS X/MacOS for that computer is Lion(!). It’s possible to get as far as El Capitan (minus the latest security update) by a small hack, but that’s it.
