Even Chromebooks and smartphones have local storage on them, and most fo the world has shitty internet service as is. Even with Starlink the latencies involved are too much to just avoid non-volatile local storage completely.
If we can't avoid volatile storage on a fucking iPhone, the most locked down computer consumers willingly expose themselves to, then how the hell are we going to do it on anything else?

To be fair Microsoft was shoving HTML engines in the OS and every application component since Windows 98, perhaps earlier. And let's not forget the .hta files where you had gui scripts made in HTML + VBS. Too bad that trident was always a shitty web ending.

>> No.82342896

I think it has something to do with people not adopting standards like NeWS from Sun, Apple's alternative years later being proprietary, and nobody really doing anything in terms of UI development since. Specifically I mean the tools.

Making efficient graphical programs is already a nightmare, but making one that's cross platform and works? Have fun.

It's easy to see how people would simply merge the tools of the web, simple markup language and the languages used to style it, for desktop applications. And if you look at the "good" proprietary solutions they've been doing this already forever with XML, postscript, and other formats. With good WYSIWYG tools on top.

Obviously when this is the case you need something local to render that markup, thus everything bundles an engine with it. It's kind of unfortunate that Mozilla's PRISM didn't take off. We'd be in the same situation but with a slightly less resource intensive engine. Instead everything is bundled chromium. And all graphics are raster rather than vector or some other kind of composite, which is also unfortunate. Although that part seems to be changing.

>>82343191
I don't think Cutler was ever the problem with NT. The problem is Microsoft's mismanagement and shitty corporate culture. The high level user mode pieces of the NT versions of Windows have always been horrible, especially their UI shells and compatibility subsystems. And for the devs who do want to write good code and maybe attempt to replace the bullshit, MS selfishly hides and refuses to document low level components like the Native API. You WILL use Sweaty Balls Ballmer's registry infested metrosexual desktop shell, and you WILL like it. That's the Winshit philosophy.

There are other operating systems that aren't UNIX-like and some of them are really good, like OpenVMS which Cutler worked on while he was with DEC. NT was supposed to be a VMS clone but it didn't work out for the reasons listed above.

>>82343375
It's slow, poorly documented (at least publicly), and doesn't do any single thing particularly well. The kernel itself isn't terrible but it's never going to really shine unless competent devs are allowed to have free reign over the development process.

Desktop GNU/Linux is more secure than MS Windows because nobody writes malware for it since it has no users. Linux OS advantage over Windows is that it can be highly customized so unnecessary components can be disabled and it is free. This is why it is good for servers and embedded systems. Take a look at this: https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list/vendor_id-33/product_id-47/Linux-Linux-Kernel.html, https://www.whitesourcesoftware.com/resources/blog/top-10-linux-kernel-vulnerabilities/ . And this is only about the kernel. Do you still think that GNU/Linux is so secure?

It is so painful waste of time if I need to get closed source or older software to work under GNU/Linux. MS Windows does not have this problem because they care about backward compatibility. This is very important for desktop users but freetards will never understand that. Windows 10 is fast on my 10 year old laptop. It is messy but at least it has stable API. GNU/Linux is also messy.

This pretty much hits the nail on the head in regards to this whole issue. XNU isn't all that interesting and lacks drivers for most hardware and you'd end up having to port Linux/BSD software over to make it useful anyways. NT is kind of it's own thing these days and would be far more interesting to study in depth.

>Desktop GNU/Linux is more secure than MS Windows because nobody writes malware for it since it has no users
Do you know what Azure is? It's the cloud infrastructure that Microsoft actually makes their money off of. Half of it runs on Linux. Same goes for Oracle and AWS. 80% of smartphones run Linux with Android on top. And now with Chromebooks around 10% of laptops use Linux too.

>but muh server OS
>muh desktop use
The desktop environment makes up a small percentage of the programs of any given Linux install and the vast majority of software responsible for system security is NOT tied to a graphical environment.

Windows Internals is a thing, you know.
I wrote Win32 and driver code, and the API docs on MSDN are decent, too. Everything you can reasonably need is on it too, I don't see what other undocumented things you would need.

You have to be on a coolaid fried chicken diet to be niggerlicous enough to believe this. Any UWP/WinUI interface will show a caret browsing pop-up in response to F7, it's a native UI not anything chrome/edge based.

>> No.82347146

Although I agree with the broader concern, couldn't that example just be the other way around? If the user turns on caret browsing for the OS, the OS can tell the browser that it's on, so then the browser can turn it on for itself. That doesn't mean anything is coming from the browser, it would just be a feature that's common to both the OS and the browser.
