The fifth version is about to go off support[^], leaving two versions supported: the one that just got proclaimed safe to use (1809), and 1803. Not counting long term support releases. And soon the release they’ll start Beta testing in “late May”.
As for Weven, I think they’re all on paid support these days. Which means... uhm, two? (Release and SP1)
If that doesn't make it clear that even ms thinks windows 8 and winio are cr@p, I don't know what does
Pity is... it has no consequence... they still continue with their crap filosophy and getting their product even worse with each new version
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Depending on your definition of "version", Windows 7 has either next to infinite of them (if you consider all unique combinations a version) or 2, namely SP0 and SP1. Or one, really, as there's only one right version, the one with the full patchset applied.
Side note: I might do the thing again without Blazor.
Blazor is not officially released yet and it has a few tooling and debugging issue.
But Razor components are official right now and they are good.
And extremely close to Blazor component (save some project settings, it seems, or something of that order)
[Later That Night]....
Mmmm... Razor components are not that good. Blazor components are!
I will simply quote MSDN here
But there's no visual editor for UI development, and it's still CSS based, so it is very tedious to create nice screens and as with all CSS based systems it can be a house of cards where one day you change something and the whole thing falls apart for no apparent reason. And of course, being HTML/CSS under the hood, you still have all the limitations that brings with it.
It's quite easy to create components, though there are significant limitations on nesting them. It's easy to combine HTML based content with dynamically generated content.
... a Xiaomi Mi Router 3. Got it home. Plugged it directly into the laptop. Set my IP to 192.168.31.16, and the gateway to 192.168.31.3 as per the instructions. First screen - accept the licence agreement. No decline button, just accept. Read the licence agreement.
A few choice phrases pertaining to 'Xiaomi products and services':
... may analyse your phone contacts to search for your friends
... not oppose the basic principles determined in the Constitution of the People's Republic of China
... you irrevocably waive any and all ownership, legal and moral rights to your user content (user content is not defined anywhere in the agreement)
Basically, it seems to boil down to if you want to use this router, this piece of hardware, then you have to open a 'Mi Talk' account, which you can only do if you accept their ten-page agreement - whereupon they own you lock stock and barrel. I presume they also have the ability to monitor anything you send anywhere.
Needless to say, the router went back first thing this morning. Fortunately, in EU law there is a requirement that if a product is sold such that any licence agreement may not be read until opening/installing the product, then if the licence agreement is declined an immediate refund must be made on return of the product.
Nobody reads what they sign up for ... they never did.
When I was MD of a small hardware / software house we needed an NDA, so I grabbed one we had signed, and based ours on that with appropriate modifications. And feeling whimsical, I added penalty clauses: sacrifice of the signatories firstborn child, that sort of thing.
Not only did it get signed without any comment, it was used as a basis by others as it was offered to me for signing some years later by a potential customer ...
