Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it. --- George Santayana (December 16, 1863 – September 26, 1952)
Those who fail to clear history are doomed to explain it. --- OriginalGriff (February 24, 1959 – ∞)
Access modifiers are another very common keyword. Fortunately the forward thinking of the creators of the Cyrillic alphabet (who were both called Cyril, it transpires) have plenty of spare characters we can use in their place. I'd suggest Ѿ (U+047E) for private and Ҝ (U+094C)
Sounds like a case of someone trying to sound smarter than they really are. Besides, Ѿ (U+047E) looks like a tooth or someone's butt depending on the font. Dunno about you, but I don't want to program with someone's butt.
Silly boy! This is a build of a "feature branch" that hasn't had the "main" Windows 9 trunk merged into it yet. It doesn't even have some of the other features of "Windows 9" from other "feature branches" merged yet.
So it's neither windows 9 nor windows 8, really. It's a weird creature unto itself.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
Don't be daft; like any company Microsoft is planning and working on future versions. They have their own tick-tock teams. Furthermore, if you read the history of windows and have been to previews, the version numbers and about screens can sometimes be from the current version like most companies. It isn't at all unusual to assign a high build number to proposed designs, while leaving everything else the same to minimize changes.
(BTW, internally Microsoft often calls the next major version of Windows as Windows Next [or Visual Studio Next].)
