Windows 10

I have started this thread to put things that are discovered with the Tech Preview.

Today I made a discovery that has more to do with Google than with Microsoft, but yet…

The fact that Xojo uses native controls makes all apps created with Xojo to have the Windows 10 look immediately without extra efforts.

Guess who does not have native windows ? It’s majesty Chrome itself. Not only is it a 32 bits app like ours, but it has non standard windows. As a result, the Chrome window looks like that of Windows 7…

At last some good news! I’m not a big fan of the new look :slight_smile:

So say some people for Yosemite :wink:

indeed! Hope this minimalist trend cycle is almost over and we can go back to those beautiful skeuomorphic interfaces for a while. The current trendy looks are boring and uncreative. (IMHO)

Pollution from phone interfaces …

May not be quite over yet …

First rough edges for Xojo under Windows 10 Tech preview :

  • Feedback app missing icon in Windows 10 taskbar 35893
  • System.Debuglog does not work for web apps under Windows 10. This issue is not new. The bug has existed since September 2013 29596

I have the Windows 10 preview and Chrome 64 bit running. They have 32 and 64 bit chrome.

The 64 bit version of Chrome is much faster than the 32 bit, but that is just my observation.

Thank you for mentioning the 64 bits version. I had not noticed it and had been running the 32 bits version all the way since Windows 7 64 bit. That version indeed feels faster, especially upon launching.
