And the rich are a lot richer than when they started a few centuries ago.
yep... and the poor are becoming homeless, and so are our vets becoming homeless as well... That number is rising too btw thanks to how poverty is big in my country.
That's what I was thinking. They already got a lot of flak online for looking like a destiny clone, but this is just too blatant.
Sorry fella, but I'm really not a fan of the Steam Controller.
Totally get that some people really dig it, but I personally wouldn't recommend it to anyone as the best PC pad.
For me a wheel for racing sims is almost as much about the feedback as it is about the sensitivity of the wheel itself. I don't think any pad could replicate that.
Well there is restrictive, and then there is an OS that doesn't allow you to even run software, by design. At the extreme edge of such practices are things that deserve to be called out for being ridiculous. Hyperbole is a relatively common method of accentuating the ridiculous.
It's not much different than Facebook offering free internet to the third world, that violates net neutrality in most first world countries.
Or on the legality front, the grey area war for forcing users to submit to their distribution platform. No one has managed to 'stop' apple, but it is the reason Jailbreaking had to be defined in a court of law as being perfectly legal. The same reason Google never had a leg to stand on to prevent amazon from essentially poaching it's app store revenue.
If this OS does release like this, I would be surprised if it didn't end up in court for trying to monopolize it's user base. The openness of being able to develop and distribute win32 applications has kept windows safe from such claims for a long time. Barely. It would be pushing the boundaries of legality as much as it does decency.
You make a reasonable point, and for the most part I agree with you. For some bizarre reason this writer has it out for Sweeney, so his opinion is a compromised one.
To be fair it was Sweeney who started using emotive terms such "ransomware" and "steal" in reference to MS potentially creating a restricted, license-free version of their OS.
My point is that saying it's being designed to "steal your Steam PC game library and ransom it back to you" is going a bit far.
Freeware is pretty much always restrictive if there's a paid-for version, isn't it?
No, it's not. This is a far too common misunderstanding of memory allocation works in a modern OS like win 10.
it'll use whats available is the short response.
unused RAM is wasted RAM.
Same goes for video memory. just cause a game uses 4-6 gig does not mean it needs it. it'll intelligently re-assign RAM and VRAM as needed.
nowadays you cannot take the amount of RAM or VRAM that has been used as being a good indicator of what is needed, but that is a good thing.
