Review: Windows 8 core apps OK for tablets, disappointing on desktops
Written by Danrok   
Tuesday, 30 October 2012 15:00

From ArsTechnica:

Messaging, people, and calendar apps filled with promise, bugs, and limitations.

In Windows 8 and Windows RT, Microsoft is aiming for a pleasant out-of-the-box experience. There's an app store for filling in gaps and adding functionality that isn't provided up front, but the core apps to power your communications with friends and colleagues come bundled with the operating system. There is Mail, Messaging, Calendar, and an innovative “People” app that brings all your contacts from various sources together into one central, interactive hub.

Under the Surface: an inside look at how Microsoft's tablet came to be

From ArsTechnica:

"Tape and strings literally made Surface."

Panos Panay, general manager of the team behind the Microsoft Surface, touches an old mockup made of black and white plastic. He's forgetting glue, certainly – two panels appear to have been hot-glued to form the "tablet" part of the device — but tape and strings really are two key ingredients in this prototype, the one Panay's team used to show off what Surface would look like. It's crude and fragile, but it's also unmistakably Surface.

Windows Packages Winetricks and PlayOnLinux

After installing Wine, PlayOnLinux and a few games, I started noticing some problems installing games and running them.  Turns out Windows Packages (sometimes known as Libraries) are critical for games to run.  Since Wine is mimicking the way Windows runs games we need to have the correct Packages for the Windows games to run.

Some examples are:

  • Direct X
  • Dot NET Framework
  • XNA
  • Flashplayer
  • Unityplayer
