It is a shame that I was not around for the liveblog or even know about the Windows event.

" Surgeons learning to operate without picking up a scalpel. "

And then you get to be their first real surgery! :) Makes me think of an adaptation of that scene from Aliens. You're laying on the OR table waiting to be put under for surgery...


You: Hey doctor, how many surgeries is this for you?

Doctor: Oh, like 150 or so... simulated

You: How many actual real surgeries?

Doctor: 2... including yours, ok time to go to sleep...

I know that the following is not entirely relevant to the topical matter here, but I want to mention this because I want to mention a problem which all (convention-defined) professionals face.

Every surgeon started out inexperienced. He/She eventually has to operate on someone, and that someone should keep in mind that in order for there to be good surgeons, there have to be inexperienced surgeons in the first place.

Making hand gestures while wearing any virtual reality device makes you look really stupid.

It's worth noting that Microsoft recently made Visual Studio completely free to individuals and company's under 5 people, but a bunch of features are behind subscriptions. I'm guessing they'll be doing the same thing with Windows. Office will probably be the first thing, they've been trying to do that with the online version for a while.

above all, the highly recommended technical demand is We Don't Want Any FPS capping(since PC is now on the X1 master race, specially)

Fable legends come to pc ( also rumours are tomb raider and sunset and who knows what else )

That mean you only need pc, ps4 and wiiu and you got everything right

Im not trying to start a fanboy war just open discussion wether i should keep my one or not

<< LINK REMOVED >> Even if your X1 is collecting dust, like most gamers with multiple systems, just hold on to it. Unless there is a dire need to get rid of it it doesn't hurt to keep it. There's bound to be something worthwhile to play and when that day comes you'll be ready.

Don't say PC master race. If you say that then you are a na. zi.

So the big epic success is a free upgrade to Win 10. That's exciting.. Then, on the opposite end of the spectrum the epic failure was that streaming console quality X1 to your PC is their way of supporting "PC Gamers". You can't win em all.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Yes, but DX will always be a thing and will always improve over time, that's a given... But still, I didn't see any real PC Gamer announcements, so they hyped that one up.

I've always hated these kinds of presentations. He sounds like a teacher reciting a textbook for students to copy down.

Missed the whole thing. Master Chief Collection for Windows 10 on PC rumour turned out to be false?

Thank you kind comment posters :)! Streaming kind of misses the point for me, which is to play Halo without getting the One....
