I don't think the latter is tecnically possible, unless they
completely re-design the OS. After all, "sideloading of non-Windows
Store software" involves just a bunch of files (.exe, .dll, etc.) and
some installation procedure/script/tool/<whatever>, if any.

What are they going to do? Prevent people to download files and put
them in the appropriate folders (Program Files, ProgramData, etc.)? I
don't think so.

Well, since those and other filetypes are Microsoft-imagined, they could
simply re-imagine another set of executable filetype and "legacy" the
pre-Win11 ones, no? Windows executable aren't standalone and their
mime-type is first confirmed by the OS, yes?

one way is by blocking apps that don't have the appropriate
microsoft-approved code signature from being launched.

however, it's very unlikely to happen because of the sheer volume of
legacy software that would instantly stop working along with the not
particularly wide choice on the microsoft store.

They could only pull that off, if they completely seperate private/
personal/consumer/<whatever> users from business (etc.) users, as
there's no way they could afford to lose the income from the latter
part. (Not that they can afford to lose (most of) the former.)

Meantime, this article is brought to you, courtesy of 18+ year old
software, still running fine.

Who's to tell? Bill'em Gates salivates everyday when he see how enriched
Apple has become with their wall-garden approach. Apple successfully
separated their MacOS systems (non-walled garden) from the iOS
(walled-garden) ones. Microsoft could very well be trying to do the same
thing, again.

Multinationals seldom do anything that won't (in their minds) increase
market share AND quarterly revenues. I suspect Windows 11 (or whatever
they decide to call it) will be a move in that direction.

they're different devices, designed in different eras and with
different design goals.

ios took lessons from the problems in mac os and windows and other
devices over the last 40ish years.

also, mobile devices have a lot more personal data on them, making them
a *much* higher value target.

Sure, though, not sure that was Jobs thought at the time.

Anyway, I'm not trying slime Apple for its founder's genius for
innovation. The iPhone was one of our generation's most revolutionary
inventions that even today is a major societal leveling tool and a curse
to privacy and child protection.

My point is that all multinational companies, hi-tech especially, care
only about bottom lines and how to increase them, including micros~1.

Well, as I said, if they took care of their enterprise accounts and
users willing to pay for the privilege via an "ultimate" offering, I see
see them doing the calculus that breaking a shitload of software that
they don't get any revenue from makes perfect sense.

That's why Microsoft released Vista when lots beta tester (myself
included, warned them about mass incompatibilities and why they released
Win8 and then knowing that those UI's created significant regression
problems to the solid Win7 install base. They make mistakes based on
faulty premises.

Additionally, there are rumors that the new system will reside on their
Azure cloud and unbridle the user from the need to even need a
sophisticated box to run programs. If that were to come about, I suspect
that allowing people to run their own roll-your-own programs on the
cloud would be highly unlikely.

no straw man.

those who say apple is a walled garden are those who don't use it much,
if at all.

just about anything that can be done with a windows pc and certainly a
linux box can also be done on a mac.

ios and android are different than macos and windows in both design and
the hardware, but there aren't any walls there either. in fact, a lot
of tasks are much easier on ios than on android.

nothing is perfect in every situation.

just about every company cares about bottom lines, otherwise they won't
be in business for very long.

public companies have an obligation to their shareholders to do so.

breaking existing software is not normally a good strategy.

this is particularly true for enterprise customers, who are not about
to rewrite all of their custom software.

win8 was an attempt to be both desktop and mobile at the same time and
did neither particularly well.

that might be an option, given that other companies are already doing
it with great success.

if they do, it won't be the only version available. not everyone wants
a cloud solution.

True but that's like saying Pres(s) Trump and Biden have the final say
when we all know that each of them had their puppetmaster. In Trump's
case it was most likely his son-in-law's father's money and with Biden
it's clear that it's not him designing the policy.

Near the end, with cancer ravaging his body, it's questionable how
in-tuned he was with the details of their development. I honestly don't
know how knowledgeable he was with the full ramifications of the privacy
monetization aspects. I'd be interested in reading a credible article
about it is you have one.

Of course, and if harvesting of personal information is profitable
(which it surely is) then they'll pursue it, as they surely have. That
the reason there needs to be a strong balancing force to keep them in
control. Our DOJ and past administrations have allowed this
laissez-faire corruption to continue and only give lip-service to
spanking them for their over-reach.

Firefox in the not too distant past legacied their XUL/XPCOM rendering
and extension APIs, essentially, killing off all of their huge 3d party
developers programs and not providing any migration APIs that would
allow those extensions to be re-designed to run on the new architecture.

Even when Apple, followed by Microsoft changed their desktop from
skeuomorphic to flat-design caused corporations to invest in re-training
their employees.

And let's not forget all the love Microsoft engendered when they decided
that just what their Office users needed was to throw out the old menu
UI and expose them to all the fantastic goodness of multi-layered ribbons!

Agreed, I being one of them. Luckily for me, my computing needs are
nicely handled with what I have now on Win7. And for programs like
TurboTax, my Win10 virtual machine on VBox handles that fine. Gaming is
an area where I may have to purchase a Win10+ box since I never really
took to consoles.

false. there are cross-platform options, plus apple just announced
support for writing ios apps on an ipad.

it also doesn't matter. using a mac is the least of anyone's problems
in writing apps. if money is a problem, then a used mac is more than
sufficient. if the app is any good, the mac will pay for itself in
short order, regardless of how much the mac cost, which can be used for
windows development too, along with just about everything else.

nope. the walls have many doors. they're normally closed, but it's not

the problem is that politicians don't understand technology (or much
else*), plus they are also paid off by lobbyists. their goal is to stay
in office, not to do what's good for society.

* it ain't just technology they don't understand:
<https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/09/texas-republican-louie-

The Texas Republican congressman Louie Gohmert has asked a
senior US government official if changing the moon¹s orbit around
the Earth, or the Earth¹s orbit around the sun, might be a solution
for climate change.
....
³We know there¹s been significant solar flare activity, and so Š is
there anything that the National Forest Service or BLM can do to
change the course of the moon¹s orbit, or the Earth¹s orbit around
the sun?² Gohmert asked. ³Obviously that would have profound
effects on our climate.²

True. wrt to the requirements Apple forces developers to use Mac XCODE
to develop native apps on iPhones.

Oh, how magnanimous of them! Allowing one to develop native apps on
another one of their expensive devices. What next, them opening it up
for developing native apps on an Apple Watch?

It does matter and is at the heart of what a walled garden is all about.
Whether it be paying 30% to the OS owners, or closed systems or forcing
developers to use competitor's software for web access, it all
anti-competitive turning the outside developers into working in a
company-owned environment where innovations are stymied and consumers
are over-priced.

On this we can agree. Less

heh, I should have mentioned that the biggest problem I had with

you said apple was a walled garden.

macs have no walls and never have.

ios devices are designed to be more secure, which some people
incorrectly call walls, however, it can be bypassed if the user wants.
it's not a good idea, but it's certainly possible.

no they don't, and apple doesn't force anyone to do anything.

xcode is the preferred method, but not the only method.

ios app developers can use visual studio:
<https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/features/mobile-app-development/>
Build cloud-connected cross platform mobile apps and games for
iOS, Android, and Windows

<https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/cross-platform/cross-plat
form-mobile-development-in-visual-studio?view=vs-2019>
You can build apps for Android, iOS, and Windows devices by using
Visual Studio. As you design your app, use tools in Visual Studio to
easily add connected services such as Microsoft 365, Azure App
Service, and Application Insights.

another option for ios app development is on an ipad.

the preferred ide for android app development is android studio. there
are alternatives there too, including visual studio.

i'll ignore the last quip, but macs aren't expensive. that's yet
another myth.

prices are similar for similar specs, and in many cases, macs are less
expensive.

you haven't done any app development, have you?

30% is cheap for the many benefits it brings, especially for indie
developers, who would end up paying more than 30% if they did it on
their own.

they can always sell their apps outside of the app store if they want,
either at the same time or instead of.

those are two entirely unrelated things.

app developers set the prices of their apps.

most apps are free, where apple/google/microsoft makes *nothing*,
despite hosting the app and offering bandwidth for free.

jobs died october, 2011, so look for news stories leading up to that
time.

one such story was in june, 2011 just four months prior to his death,
where he gave a presentation to the cupertino city council about what
is now apple's spaceship campus, previously hewlett-packard:
<https://www.mercurynews.com/2011/06/08/apples-steve-jobs-appears-at-cup
ertino-city-council-meeting-to-pitch-huge-campus-expansion-2/>
Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance at the
Cupertino City Council last night to announce Apple¹s plans for a
spaceshiplike circular building in Cupertino that will house 12,000
workers on the site of what is now a Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) campus.

you can watch it here:
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtuz5OmOh_M>

he is quite thin (and likely weak), but that's about it. his brain is
fine.
