    iOS with similar problems but the difference is it's not a preview version and users have the opportunity to ignore the upgrade. So in our instance as insiders I can't see what alpha, beta or any other title means anything. You download fast , slow or skippy, accepting terms and conditions as laid out. Simples. I can sympathise with older high end PCs/Laptops not being able to install latest preview versions but that might well be that the motherboard is BIOS only. I don't know but might be a factor.

    One thing that never changes about programming is the more structured a program is the more it is easier to test its robustness. Anybody can make a small 10 line program robust but POTENTIAL for bugs increases non linearly with size (in an exponential manner). Good techniques suppress exponential rise (e^-ax where a=(say) 1 by reducing sensitivity making a<1.

    But no matter what anybody does, it is impossible to stop number of potential bug combinations rapidly approaching infinity from a practical viewpoint ie time to fix is beyond practical timescales.

    This is why I laugh when people say MS should test more before releasing something. Even if they do a magnificent job reducing bugs by a factor of 100, 1% of a very large number is still a very large number.

    All one can do in realistic terms is test the most common and likely perceived scenarios, working on basis obscure bugs are statistically much less likely. But when you are talking about 600 million users on 600 million different combinations of pc and software, and completely different usage patterns, it does not take much cranial capacity to realise how impossible a tsk is really being faced.

    In fact, if you really think about it, it is remarkable how well MS do in reality.
    Absolutely. Code reuse help too.

    Absolutely agree with cereberus. Frankly I find it amazing that this software copes so well with the huge diversity of setups.

    That TLD (Top Level Domain) is as far as I know and noticed only used as TLD for Brandon's email he has clearly set up only for this purpose, to get feedback (flighthub (at) bleblanc.me).

    The TLD .me is counry code / TLD for country Montenegro. It has nothing to do with Microsoft. Because the TLD is an English word ME, it is used by several Internet services outside Montenegro (follow.me is a good example) in a similar way than quite a many services use Italy's TLD .it (for instance, take a look at make.it and suck.it!).

    That's interesting. Thought it stood for Microsoft Engineering. Pure coincidence.
