PowerToys for Win10 -- MS wants open source programmers' help

#1 Post by w0qj » Thu May 09, 2019 2:43 am

I thought my glasses needed serious cleaning, but apparently there might be an upcoming PowerToys for Win10,
and MS wants open source programmers' help to complete this.

The only useful PowerToy I remember was TweakUI for XP.

And since I will never use W10 anyway, M$ can do as they like...
Even this: Windows will soon have a Linux kernel! https://www.theverge.com/2019/5/6/18534 ... el-feature

let them do... they are massively losing private users. they still ignore it because many companies buy into their cloud and 365 services. but the end of their empire is nearing... just a couple of years more left. all the people I put on linux will never go back to windows. the moment it will become widespread as private usage schools and other small organisations will start to follow. XP was my last microsoft OS I used, never looked back. especially in Europa, microsoft massively briber and manipulated schools since the end of the eighties, the only reason why they were so widespread.
