Longhorn will end the Information age

Thursday, April 28, 2005

I just found out Longhorn will run on some older PCs too . Now that will end everything! Zdnet states:

"the bad news is that Longhorn is going to look and run quite differently on those older systems".

And they make it sound as if users of older pc's will miss out on new features! They are nuts! This means Longhorn needs a whole new pc AND runs applications developed for a P3! It means the new OS will have ERRORS generated by different output!

I hate Microsoft! Not a power system with powerful applications. NO A power system with everything REMOVED that didn't run on the ancient 0.5 GB pc's. It's just like having various browsers. You will have to look how it looks each time you change something OR you will never know when it stopped working.

A programmer will need to buy a shit pc to test his code and he will have to use it all day!

Let us all pray and hope the developers will do that? Not a chance! If they won't we will have different performance on each system.
"It doesn't work cuz I don't have a mac". Will change into "It doesn't work because my version of Longhorn has more memory".

I use to make websites on a Pentium 2 with win-98, that way it always worked smooth on all pc's. Now we should develop Longhorn applications on a P3? Great! Well, take it from me: "you bought the new pc for nothing" If your lucky you can even run the application! But if you cant there is nothing anyone can do about it. The developer just didn't know it didn't work under HI res setting. And he sure as hell doesn't know at what stage it stopped working.

If most users have an older pc, all software should run on that. So making cool things for this OS is impossible. No one can use it then.

Should make software for an operating system and an operating system for the hardware.

The whole Internet is made for dial up-users. All software in 2010 will be made for the P3.

the bugs are the extras.

Then we have a new pc and a new OS with software for old pc's.


If it works you can save some money by putting the parts in the box yourself. If it doesn't work your screwed. Mine turned out really loud. I didn't know it was this bad before I put it together.

Guess who is to blame now?
