It's too much for my ADD to handle LOL, but looks like a good thing for folks doing lot's of editing etc.

 

 

 

I just think things work better when they are simpler, and not all tied to MS.  They tend to try to lock you into Their Way, and then your stuck using Their Products

 

I have to say that MS as a commercial entity has been the least guilty, over the decades, of either locking you into "Their Way," or requiring you to use "Their Products."  I believe you must be thinking of Apple, which is the textbook example of both.

 

Haha, haven't they already done that by being a Monopoly, a reported 88.87% by one site ?  What else is there, Mac, Chromebook, Linux lol?  All very small parts of what's left over of the market.  No, they don't need to force you into using all their software, mostly because they have already accomplished that lol.  They are the Good-Ol-Boys of the software industry as we say here in the us.  This is not intended to be an argument Brian, just my point of view.

Seriously, you don't need to use MS software with Windows.  There is plenty of software written by other companies, and individuals which work just fine on Windows.  They really are not a monopoly which is defined as the exclusive possession or control of the supply or trade in a commodity or service.  They are simply popular.

dhagerjohns beat me to it.

 

The amount of non-Microsoft-produced software for the Windows platform outstrips, by far and away, the amount produced by Microsoft.  The PC environment, since the days of DOS, has been a third-party playground.  That's a huge part of what made the platform become so popular.

 

I am not a Microsoft fanboy, and have harshly criticized certain things they've done over the decades.  They are, however, wildly popular, and there have been plenty of opportunities and plenty of attempts to supplant them.  They just haven't worked and, with the notable exception of Android, most have kept unbelievably strict control over what third-party software can be used in their ecosystems.  [I'd imagine ChromeOS is fairly open, too, but I have no experience with it.  Linux, however, is every bit as open as Windows is.]

While all the insiders have been waiting for this feature to appear, it has been "officially" pulled from our insider builds. It looks like it may appear in a few months.

Joseph Lee always does a good pre-release roundup of what's coming, what's going, and what has been delayed:  

 

          January 2018 development briefing: Timeline, feature removals, Focus Assist, more changes

 

This one mentions that sets are not going to be implemented in the next feature update.

Brian, I guess that is why they pulled sets from our most recent insider preview build. It was present in the build before this one but this one just got dumped on us yesterday and it is nowhere to be found in the this current build.

 

Oh well. I guess that it was not fully baked.

Good grief !!!

 

Another reason to start thinking about biting the bullet and converting my laptops to Linux, as well!
