whew. remembering that Nokia had to waste a whole year in re-developping their smartphone hardware basis on a soc of a company they never worked with so they could run windows 7/8/ whatever...

THIS sounds desperate.

Kids are learning computers on non-Windows platforms again. This had to be stopped.

Of course, it's the crappy (I mean even crappier than normal) version of 'doze that only allows two programs to be open at once, and it'll have no desktop, only "modern" apps.

So basically it turns your Pi into a crippled version of Surface RT.

I think it will catch on.  I think I read somewhere that they were reviving Microsoft Bob and Clippy to help the children program without the sharp edges that would otherwise be present in non-directed programming and without any hulking IDE's.

They're going to encourage schoolchildren to use the Pi to achieve Bill Gates' lifelong dream of developing an easy way to factor large prime numbers.

Because they are bringing out new versions of Outlook and Office?

btw I looked into Outlook for Android; it doesn't support Exchange, only Office 365.

muahaha, keyboard obsession...

after trying to punch a touch interface down the throat of their users with windows 8 ;-)

... it seems their best Idea was to get their cash cow working mobile is to create a good keyboard for those...

we all know they abandoned touch windows a decade ago because of office wouldn't run on it...

Microsoft typically wrote stuff for offices, so they could be productive, or whatever.

Not quite sure how one goes about removing the keyboard in favor of typing your word documents and handling your spreadsheets without a keyboard, but they oughta figure it out, yes?

In my opinion, Microsoft's best products were their ergonomic split keyboard and their mice.

yes, no comparison to the cherry G80 - 5000, but a good start. I'd prefer a regular G80 over it however.

The article suggests that Microsoft needs an intervention. I disagree. I think it needs to be put down. :)

That gives way to a good rallying cry to anyone who dares to suggest that Microsoft isn't a bully anymore:

"Microsoft: OIN or GTFO."

fleeb, since you're the mr. Windews installer, did you already work with NSIS?

i'm having a pretty hard time to figure stuff out...

That's the installer by NullSoft, right?

I had to build an installer for our client tool using that, because fucking MSI doesn't let you create decent installation packages that can truly handle 64-bit vs. 32-bit environments, where you build one installer that installs appropriately for either operating system.

So, I settled on NullSoft's thing. It can. I sorta hate it, because it requires you learn a scripting language they invented, which to me is a step backwards, but there you go.

I wouldn't call myself a guru with it, but maybe I can help you.

ah, yes thats great. Yes, its that Nullsoft thing.

i've got this template:

( is the transscript howto generate it all)

and it installs to the systems startmenu like this:

/cygdrive/c/Users/All Users/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/ArangoDB 2.5.0-beta1


I've learned that one should call

SetShellVarContext all

so they get removed on uninstall again... I'm trying that, but the directory is not removed :-(

the *F*n compile process takes half an hour, and I can't seem to circumvent it, so the experience is pretty frustrating...
