ure, it's the most over-hyped Kickstarter funded project ever
As I've seen in the video there is a cause why one can hype it: It is f*cking amazing! But I am more the guy who takes his Ultrabook everywhere with him - Therefore I am waiting for my Freitag Messenger-Bag[^] arriving at home. Waterproof an resistant against nearly everything.
Edit: Here is a link to a vid commercial about Freitag bags: Clickety[^]
With all sorts of gadgets shipping to you first like Ultrabook, Peeble, Ultrabook Convertible, and you have Nexus, iPhone......... don't you think you need an App that tells you how many gadgets you have and their physical location and the Apps installed in them and utility of those apps and suggest you what you should use and when?
So, I have been facing a lot of Internet issues lately, so I assumed that the slow loading of Codeproject, and some other websites was my fault. But then I checked a website with high-speed servers and got this:
The most annoying part about this is that this has been the fastest load (~2 Seconds), every other page I load takes rougly six-seven seconds if not more.
Edit: Firefox(Probably not the best webbrowser anymore) just crashed attempting to post this.
I've seen this popular thing on here. It's called WPF, I never really looked into it, because I am not into new things. But I've seen some cool things you can create with it. But, what exactly is it, is it different than Forms C#?
Not true. If you're writing native C++/Win32/MFC code you can distribute all the runtime lib and MFC dependencies as DLLs in your install directory. Very clean. Its a shame the newer technologies seem to completely ignore deployment hassles and just dump it all on the end user to install some framework/runtime just to run your app. Xcopy deployment is the way it should be imo
Its not that you have the issue in any technology, its that you have the issue when the technologies are built without regard for deployment.
Disagree strongly. The one framework installation to rule them all is a major security enhancement. A single update gets library fixes deployed to every client application; without it most would remain exploitable for months or years in the future because even of the application developer did create a new redistributable with the fix most users would never check for a new version.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius

Yes, that's a good point and is a strength of the single central update approach. On the downside, its possible that the single update can then break older software. Or another scenario is where you want to install and run 3 different versions of an application which was built against 3 versions of some dependency which might not be completely backwards compatible. Being able to have multiple versions of an app installed side by side and each using the runtime they were built for can be a nice feature.
But the security concern is a valid one and one approach for that is the central update. You can distribute with your own dependencies though provided you do keep up to date and your users keep up to date with things.
