    Windows 10 Spinning Dots CHANGED from 6 to 5 dots?


    I'm not having a problem with my PC, but I wanted to ask a question. It seems to me that the spinning dots that are visible during Windows 10 startup changed from 6 spinning dots to 5 spinning dots. I don't know at what point this change occurred or why. Can anyone enlighten me?

    How can you count them? They're spinning so quickly... goes off to look ... by Jove, you're right. This kind of change is most likely to be introduced at a major update point (like AU in August 2016) or in a cumulative update. Can't find any specifics on when this change occurred, or why. Methinks it's just a user interface/activity display change, and not one of major sigificance, either. I bet we're talking about an entirely trivial code change (like the assignment of a variable or constant, first to 6 and then later to 5).

    I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist . . . here's my guess . . . . before there were 6 dots, and they would pass by in groups of 3 . . . there was a pattern of 6 . . . 6 . . . 6. Someone said "Hey, '666' is the sign of the Beast in Revelations." Let's change that.

    Yeah, I'm sure that's it. Can't be having no number of de Beast in Windows. But a quick hop into Everything shows de number literally ... wait for it ... everywhere. Go figure!

    So, basically, Windows 10 shall bring about the End of Days . . . the Apocalypse . . . Revelations. Just Kidding.

    It's pretty sure there will be no Windows 13 but will there be Rs13 ?
