Windows 10, inspired by Apple's OS X

Discus and support Windows 10, inspired by Apple's OS X in Windows 10 News on Windows 10 Forums to solve the problem; Microsoft's deeper reveal of Windows 10 today was marvelously weird. Not only did the live-streamed event have the same delivery hiccoughs as Apple's... Discussion in 'Windows 10 News' started by labeeman, Jan 21, 2015.

    Windows 10 Product Key after upgrading to Windows 10

    It's a breach of Apple's software license agreement to run OS X on anything other than Apple Hardware; and NO you can't get a free upgrade to Windows 10 from OS X.

    Windows 10 Release updates with certain apple designs and features

    For those of us who use Apple Mac OS X and Windows 10 both, we may find the apple spotlight search and taskbar(launcher) more convenient and interesting instead of the Windows 10 start menu and file explorer which have certain bugs :)....... Well Microsoft
    should release a Windows 10 update that has features both similar to Apple Mac OS X Spotlight search and Launcher with an option to choose between keeping apple based launcher or start menu..........Microsoft should also cange the Lock Screen as sometimes
    hangs while logging in.

    Really? I thought it was really interesting and well thought out. He is quite a looker as well. To me it sounds like a Apple fan trying to stick up for OSx and putting down Windows at the same time.

    Seems some of the features of notepad hand writing dragging text... came from Google devices not Apple as far as I've seen :/
    I did read somewhere Microsoft did pay Apple for allot of it's touch screen technology though true or not ?

    More Lol...;) I will admit that under Sinofsky and Ballmer there was quite a bit of Apple-smooching going on behind the scenes--Win8 (and its rapid popularity collapse) make that point undeniable. But the Apple-smoochers are gone from the upper echelons of company (Ballmer & Sinofsky), and what it seems to me now that Microsoft is doing is "going Apple one better" as opposed to "copying" Apple...;) In short, whatever Apple does Microsoft will do better (when it comes to customer support), and whatever Apple does that Microsoft won't do is all to Microsoft's credit, imo...;) Windows customers have never been Apple customers...most of them having outgrown the need for training wheels of the kind Apple provides long ago. Apple will continue to serve the non-technical crowd as it has always done, because those folks are sitting ducks for the kinds of technical malarkey and double-talk Apple peddles. People who want to know more and to do more are usually Microsoft customers.

    False..! Lol...*Wink You probably read that in some Mac forum somewhere, no doubt--the 'Land of Tall Tales and Paul Bunyon.' Touch-screen technology dates back to the 70's & 80's...Apple didn't invent it, nor Microsoft, not even close. You might like to note that several of Apple's attempts to patent touch-screen software in the US have been rejected by the patent office under "Prior Art" grounds, and several more of Apple's attempt to patent what it copied from others are currently under challenge.

    Probably running Windows via Bootcamp, too...;) Ironic that Windows will run natively on any x86 box, including a Mac, but OS X is artificially tied to Apple firmware and cannot be easily installed anywhere else--or legally, actually, as Apple forbids it. (Which is why OS X is no competitor to Windows.) I wish Apple would stop crippling OS X in this way. What a shame that is. Apple will charge a hefty premium for its x86 hardware, which makes the people who think that Apple doesn't charge much if anything for OS X especially comical. Apple's "charge" for OS X is the premium Mac owners pay for their hardware--which in extreme cases amounts to hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Along with crime in general, ignorance in technology decidedly does not pay...;)
