  1. Yeah, but it's not like it's impossible to make a plugin system for a non-electron program. Even Sublime has plugin support (here is a package manager for Sublime, it has over 5,000 plugins in its repo). I don't think it's as commonly used or developed for simply because Sublime is not as popular as VSCode. If Sublime was free, and more widely used than VSCode, then I am sure it would have just as many addons as VSCode.
  2. Depends on what you mean. Windows 10 is still in development too. Windows 11 is probably past the "release to manufacturer" stage as this point, since Microsoft has already started developing the next version of Windows 11, from what I can tell in the insider program. What I do know however is that TPM is pretty much useless in its current iteration, and personally I can't see any technical reason why they are enforcing their really idiotic CPU requirements, or the TPM requirements. Even if it will be used for features in the future, I am really having a hard time figuring out what i
  3. It does not. You can test this yourself if you want (I already have but if you want to double check feel free). Configure Windows Hello on your PC. Fingerprint, face recognition, PIN, whatever you want. Try logging in and out a few times to make sure it works. Clear your TPM. You can do this from Windows Defender. Restart your PC when asked. Try logging in with Windows Hello. It will work. If anything relating to Windows Hello was stored in the TPM, you would not be able to login. However, you will find that it is still very much possible.
  4. But it is regular ARM instructions. What exactly do you think TSO is? It changes the memory model to be similar to x86. What do the instructions I referred to do? Makes the memory model similar to x86. It's those instructions that makes Rosetta so fast. Apple is one of the few hardware makers that have implemented them and as far as I know, the only consumer software maker that uses them. TSO is just Apple's name for the OS functions that uses those instructions. Sure it would require some hardware changes but that's like saying "AVX requires hardware changes". Of course
  5. Nope, Windows Hello does not leverage the TPM. @GoodBytesdoesn't know what he is talking about. The TPM doesn't even support storing biometric data. It's just flat out not in the spec and can therefore not be used for that purpose. If I sound cranky it's because I am getting really tired of so much misinformation being spread about TPMs. There are so many people saying they increase security without even knowing how they work, or people making shit up about what they are capable of. No, it's not that clear cut. On one hand, you can do more robust
  6. That feature does not use the TPM. @StDragon@Zodiark1593 @bmx6454 TPM is not required for that feature nor does a TPM in any way shape or for improve security of that feature.
  7. I think it's about 50/50 who to blame. Do I blame Qualcomm? Absolutely. The SoCs have just not been that good. Compared to Apple they are constantly 2-3 generations behind, if not more. Hopefully that will change with their recent acquisition of Nuvia, but even if it does, we're still a couple of years away from end products in the hands of consumers. But here is why I think Microsoft shares an equal amount of blame. 1) Microsoft has encouraged an ecosystem of lazy and closed source developers. As a result, existing software is really hard to port to ARM, and not m
  8. No, they actually don't in some situations. Go read a law book before commenting on something you do not understand.
  9. It's possible, but that's kind of what ChromeOS is for. It runs android apps too if that's what you're after.
  10. I don't see how that applies here. Google is not doing something TO Android in this case. It was using Android to threaten LG and others. That's using android, not doing something to Android. If Android is the stick, then Google is using the stick to hit LG. Maybe it's easier for you to understand if we make a little bit more 1:1. LG is an employee and Google is a owner of the company. Google is responsible for LG getting a salary. One day, Google asked LG to suck his dick or else LG would get fired. According to you, this should not be against the law,
  11. But in this case poochyena is even debating wanting even more freedom and lack of responsibility for companies than what is allowed in the US. He basically wants anarchy. No laws or regulations for companies. They are free to do whatever they want. Even the US, which bends over backwards to please large companies, have quite a few laws and regulations regarding this. For example the Intel vs AMD example I made earlier was not just taken from thin air. It was a real thing that happened (with some minor details changed, such as it happening a long time ago) and the US government punished Intel f
  12. I disagree that it was a security issue, but I do agree that MacOS's popup would be fair, secure and easy to use. Also, if I had to guess, 90% of the reason why Microsoft did it this way is because they want to make it harder for users to change from Edge to let's say Chrome. The remaining 10% can be them thinking about security. I don't buy for a second that Microsoft thought "this is a really big security issue we need to fix with Windows 10. Oh, the solution we came up with just so happened to make it much more difficult to change from our Edge browser. It was totally not our int
  13. I honestly don't. Can you explain it to me? Maybe it's because English is my second language, but to me "using and object" and "doing something with an object" are the same thing. "I am using this stick to hit someone" and "I am hitting someone with this stick" are the same things to me. And now we're back to this again: Maybe it wouldn't have been, and if it wasn't AMD might have ended up going bankrupt. How can you possibly be okay with allowing mega corporations to threaten others to comply with their dem
  14. Video player, browser and a handful of other things are the only ones not allowed to set themselves as the default. Again, if it really was a security risk, then why does no other OS do it in the very locked down way Windows 10 does? Surely you have to agree that it benefits Microsoft to make it as difficult as possible, and they have heavily tried to push users to Edge.
  15. Then I must have misunderstood you. So you do agree that companies shouldn't be allowed to do whatever they want with their services, correct? That "it's their service" is not a reason for allowing them to use their service to harm competitors. Because here is the conversation and I don't rally see how I can interpret you in any way other than you thinking it should be okay for companies to abuse their powers to harm others. Me: You: Me: You: It seems like you are making a differentiation between "use
