Every version of Windows, since Vista, have severely crippled installation of unsigned drivers that haven’t been WHQL verified. I’ve discussed this at length in an earlier post. Unsigned drivers couldn’t be installed, until the administrator account forced it. Windows 8 took it one notch further and made it impossible to install drivers in a usual run. It doesn’t mean you need revert back to an earlier Windows version. Your developer electronic projects can still be cradled on a Windows 8 system.
Yaourt is yet another user repository tool. It is, not co-incidentally, an acronym for Yet AnOther User Repository Tool. It is a community contributed repository for pacman, which is the package manager of Arch Linux and a few other minor Linux distributions. It adds seamless access to the Arch User Repository. It allows the user to automate package compilation and installation from the thousands of PKGBUILDs available in the AUR. It also completely supports the many thousands of Arch Linux binary packages.
Windows 8 introduced the Start Screen, as it did many other things – full screen Windows 8 style apps, Charms, a more intensive touch based interface, the Store, XBOX games for Windows, etc. To me, that’s everything I could do in one package. It, in addition, does what no other touch OS can do – viewing two apps at a time. Of course, Windows 8.1 now changes that to allow a maximum of four apps per screen without any possible disadvantage of the side view. Still, until the latest update gets to it’s full release, most users would have got used to, if not already, the side-snapped view.
I’m looking forward to all of Mavericks’ features, so let’s co-title it. Mavericks – The top new features of the next Mac OS X.
This year at WWDC, Apple unveiled a lot of things they’re bringing out for the rest of the year. Honestly, I’m the most thrilled about the next version of OS X. Sure iOS had a major overhaul, but I won’t be thinking about it until and unless I own an iOS device.
No, I don’t suck at computers. You do, statistically. Those words above are what you should remind yourself when I’m around. I’m the computer expert.
What you should do before calling me to “catch-up”…
Why I’m planning on not having children…
Yeah! I’m lazy and I try shooting multiple targets with one bullet all the time. This time it is three. Achievement unlocked – “Three birds in the hand.” So, let’s get to the elaboration of the three titles, but first a warning. None of it will make sense(it might; but I’ve been told it usually doesn’t, so I’m going with not) at first but all of it will be explained in fragments.
