    I have the Windows store, because I wanted to play Forza Horizon 4 on PC. Iím kind of pissed that an update last year nuked all of my games for Windows Live programs. I had put in nearly 150 hours into Fallout 3 alone.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    Real talk I'm still playing the same PC games from 2003 as well....I think what people want is a stable version of Windows with the Classic or even XP themes. Honestly no reason for much different I think. I'm not trying to change the world with my PC, I just want control over what it does and does not do.

    I was actually not saying that its a bad thing, I've been rocking the win95/98 look myself for the last 25 years.
    I was just making fun of the whole situation, here I just want a nice clean looking OS but MS keeps insisting that I accept their enormous graphical redesigns and SPYING.

    All that CPU power lost because I want my OS to resemble one that ran on a fucking 486.

    It's fucking ridiculous, and I am honestly concerned what I am going to do in the future when Win7 will get dropped by programs like Steam.

    Even right now I am reinstalling a fresh copy of Win7 on my new 250gb SSD and I have to deal with shit like changing the look and blocking telemetry not just from MS but Nvidia as well. and getting patches to fix the hole in the CPU created just to STEAL INFORMATION.

    I honestly can't take it anymore, blessed be the ignorant.

    I just don't understand MS, give us a fucking choice! I understand you want to give the zoomers an OS that resembles their special needs kid colorful phone buttons with a direct link to facebook, I get that!
    But give me an OS that looks and works like something that I've actually been using since 1995. I don't need an xbox market, I don't need apps on my screen so I can shit on twitter quicker. STOP TREATING YOUR USERS LIKE FUCKING KIDS!!!!!

    My problem with Windows has always been the mouse on portables. It has always sucked. When Apple came along with their fancy multi-touch trackpad with gestures, I was sure MS/friends would follow along with actually usable touchpads on portables. That was circa 2006. The Thinkpads even still have the little red nub!

    If it weren't for that, I would have no problem with modern Windoze from a functional standpoint.

    That has nothing to do with Windows and everything to do with the OEM, whoever made the laptop. I have an ASUS from 2013 with a perfectly fine touchpad with built-in software gestures. The right-click button has sunken in due to way too much use, but the trackpad itself works fine. No weird Lenovo Thinkpad red nub in the middle of the keboard.

    Iím not saying it doesnít function, but itís never comfortable. Iíve never seen a review of a PC notebook comparing its trackpad favorably to a Mac. Iíve used TOTL Thinkpads, Latitudes, and average PCs and they all have the same crude control, even with multitouch.

    With a mouse, everythingís fine.

    Iíve read that itís something to do with the compositing framework underlying Windows that doesnít let it have the same fine control as Mac.

    This is what I read: https://www.reddit.com/r/answers/comments/1sr3fd/why_does_mac_os_xs_trackpad_move_so_much_better/?utm_source=BD&utm_medium=Search&utm_name=Bing&utm _content=PSR1.

    I created an Arcade Classics Windows 10 Desktop Theme and posted it over on the LaunchBox and Hyperspin Boards. I didn't develop the images and sounds myself but put them all together to make a fun theme. Let me know if you like it.
