Windows 10sion: what’s old is new again, and that’s a problem
There was never really any doubt that the next version of Windows was going to look at least a little like Windows 7. Even Windows 8.1 was a step back in that direction for Microsoft, bringing back the Start Menu that so many millions of customers missed. But for all the time Terry Myerson and Joe Belfiore spent on stage today explaining the enormity of change in Windows 10 — they skipped a version number to prove the point — there’s no obscuring the blindingly obvious truth.

Windows 10 is Windows 7.

This cheap and beautiful machine is 3D printing’s best chance at going mainstream
There’s a host of reasons why 3D printing hasn’t exactly broken through to the mainstream yet, despite a number of attempts from companies big and small. High cost and complexity have long been concerns, but perhaps more importantly, no company has yet made a strong case for why you should have a 3D printer in your home — it has remained a niche hobby that requires expensive and ugly hardware.
