i think outlook may be so bad these days that notes, which hasnt changed in 20 years, may now be a better for email.

exchange is infinitely better than domino tho, that ones still not even close.

yesterday i was locked out of my email for a little while because a server-side log file filled up, which causes a constant error dialog in the client when trying to do anything. they had to do manual maintenance on the server to clear it out.

i still can't get over the fact they named it cortana right before releasing the halo game that made cortana into Basically Thanos

nah, 10 was perfectly fine, even dpi stuff had mostly been fixed up. but seems that was to be only for that one fleeting version.

what's broken, because they fixed windows not remembering where to go when a monitor turns off and on again

oh cool, xbox game pass just quit installing anything. google consensus is that since the two or three things to reset haven't fixed it, i get to do a full wipe and reinstall of windows if i want this to ever work again. this is so much better than steam !!

tbf iíve had to do this in macos on occasion to get networking to work at all. i guess i musta been on a network that didnít have ipv6 routing set up right

this is apparently a problem unique to a combination of game pass and windows 11. everything else on the system could download stuff just fine.

it undid my regedit scroll wheel changes, like all previous major updates. on the other hand i can hide more of the 'recent apps' start menu area

not all of it, though. gotta leave something for 2023

it takes awhile to win the internal battle against the manager that drove adding the recent apps area and making it required

you can't have a single electron runtime on the system because then electron would be like java and all the javascript programmers have spent their entire careers being extremely smug about not being like java

huh? everything Iíve read says it doesnít know how to effectively use the new e cores

yeah, i don't think they backported the part of the scheduler that reads the thread director so it's just less efficient

yes but if you wanna count the xboxonex as an xbox then the Xbox Series brand of consoles are fifth

nobody does that because it was just a spec bump like the ps4 pro. there are no games that only run on the one x and likely never will be.

personally i care fantastically little about the "look at this old bit of ui in windows", if i got to choose between having all windows 11 ui suddenly updated to the "modern" style or the "visual search" button on images in edge disappearing forever i'd certainly go for the latter. despite the fact that you can turn the latter off in two clicks (issue being that updates sometime forget that setting, because microsoft are so loving annoying about this stuff).

nah the 20 different ui styles sucks rear end and is indicative of a massive lack of quality control

lol, no, what is indicative of a lack of quality control is the lack of quality control. i would also be up for microsoft putting some of the old ui back if they'd spend 5 minutes debugging some of the new stuff in trade.

(also ironically posting on the page where people are posting regedit strings to restore old ui)

oh so you're one of those "ux doesn't matter and isn't real development" people, gotcha

Its really loving dumb and they added a toggle for it in the next release

really wish I was in the room for whatever meeting got called where the development team just read negative reviews over and over to whatever marketing exec rammed that feature through
