    Microsoft Windows 11 confirmed exclusive to 64-bit CPUs.

    Which ones? Right now I only saw mentions of requiring an entitlement to use the hypervisor.

    There will be for the start menu but the taskbar is considered non-modifiable by Microsoft. However I expect the taskbar to have all of its functionality gradually restored since it's running on a new animation engine and I'd expect Microsoft to complete the switch to it over time. One thing I noticed is that windows under Windows 11 now show proper scaling animations after 14 years and 10 months of Windows Vista release. And the rounded aspects of Windows Vista/7 UI is also back. Also nice to see transparent blurred windows making a comeback.

    News flash: Plenty of stuff and Windows-isms the average Linux users hates are right there existing in the Linux ecosystem widespread. GSettings being Linux's equivalent of Windows Registry? Check. Wayland getting forcibly shoved down the average Linux user's throats? Check. systemd becoming widespread across distros with most of them not offering any alternatives despite violating UNIX principles? Check. There are also other factors to take into account, like thousands of solutions getting engineered over Linux app containers and there existing two mainstream UI toolkits for Linux that is GTK+ and Qt with former being described as an API evolution disaster and the latter having the infamous copyright assignment requirement and commercial versions. Add to the fact that getting an old Linux game working under it requires putting far more effort that the average user is incapable of and the fact that unlike in macOS you need to type in your password to get shit installed should make you understand why Linux still hasn't ever taken off. Those also aren't issues solvable with marketing; people will just install Windows instead. The only thing that can take off is Linux gaming and that will be because of Steam Deck. And that's because Steam Linux games tend to link locally exclusively so that they don't have issues on differing distro configurations. Windows is here to stay for a long time because people can make mod loader frameworks easy to use for the end user on the platform and because of its backwards compatibility promise.
  4. It's probably because of Microsoft owning GitHub that ketmar choose to go for Fossil.

    Admittedly most Android smartphones I have seen nowadays allow for boot loader unlocking although I don't expect the average non-tech-savvy Android user to unlock bootloaders just for installing custom ROMs to continue getting updates.

    Sure because everyone's got an Android phone with unlockable bootloader right? And everyone will switch to custom ROMs after their phones stop getting official updates right? These are not the mindset of most average Android users.

    I think that would be Android users who throw away their phones every couple of years. iPhones get updates for much more years than a typical Android phone.

    HP also choose Itanium as the hill to die on with HP-UX; it's set to be EOL'd fully in 2025.

    FYI it was actually AMD's work to kill 16-bit support on the 64-bit instruction sets. It was also AMD's work to bork VME on Ryzen CPUs for a time breaking 32-bit operating systems.

    Can updating the engine be taken too far?

    Any sort of compiled scripting language is a bad idea for source ports and also a bad thing for the community period. ACS should remain the only compiled scripting language.

    Nintendo are being jerks again

    All corporations are amoral, actually.

    DoomGeneric NTNative

    So it comes at last, Doom on the BootExecute/Native environment of Windows XP/Vista/7. Download: https://github.com/Cacodemon345/doomgeneric/releases/ Look at the README.md file of the repository for installation instructions. Only tested on Windows XP 32-bit. It's slow as hell on VirtualBox but I believe it is much more faster on a real PC. Look at the Bugs section before reporting bugs.

    A shader for GZDoom for emulating what Doom would look like if it supported EGA. Download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1myiCy7SPvo_o0iIxPeKX3VTxeAkH9j25/view?usp=sharing Screenshots (also some spoiler text):
