using firefox and thunderbird as part of my resolution to only use software that has a fursona

Also, I kinda forgot I love having these actual email clients that, like, download your emails and stuff

Everything's so fast! You don't have to, like, click on an email and wait for it to come back from the server.

specifically: why did they replace everything that comes with windows with some bloaty UWP app that's really slow and doesn't work

the "photos" ""app"" on my laptop was broken for like a week and when it did work again, it'd take several seconds to load

meanwhile, the windows photo viewer on this old-ass laptop? pchow! pew! opens immediately!

@BestGirlGrace Very glad that my computers are both upgraded from Win7, so I still have Photo Viewer and Windows Media Player

@BestGirlGrace late to this party, but knowing the Windows team, they probably forgot how to build the old ones

there's a whole series of blog posts on shit like this, including the fun fact that cmd.exe is now older than most of the people working on it

@VyrCossont I've read enough Raymond Chen stories to believe this, honestly.

Plus, it's a chance to show off the Hot New UWP Technology that nobody's using.

@BestGirlGrace they honestly would have made fewer developers sad by sticking with XNA, the pre-UWP cross-platform story

but instead we're probably gonna get UWP2 for Windows 11: all apps must be written as VS Code plugins

@BestGirlGrace oh who am i kidding

there won't be a Windows 11, it'll be called Windows 10 Anniversary of the Anniversary Update

@VyrCossont Oh, of course not. It'll be Windows 10 Forever.

Now, everything as a Microsoft Teams app..
