    The title of this post implies AMD and Synaptics are working on "next generation microsoft operating system". I was a little confused, but the article cleared up the confusion. So they're working on security sensors for windows.

    I don't get it... since when were fingerprint scanners complex enough to warrant this? Practically any computer with a USB port could handle a fingerprint reader in a timely manner (relative to how long it would take for it to do anything worth securing). Wouldn't it have been easier and more secure for Synaptics to just use a CPU from the Cortex M series?

    They're calling it that because it's going to be MS's response to the public after they find out nobody is using it.

    Uh oh, look what you inspired me to do:
    Don't you remember? Rumor has it, A million years ago, there was a Dell (yeah I know, I'm pushing it here) laptop, running Windows Hello. It was discovered When we were young; it was Rolling in the deep of the River Lea. Within it contained doomsday text of Setting fire to the rain, where the One and only Remedy was to Find a boy with the Sweetest devotion to Turn the tables of the apocalypse, and bring our Hometown [to] Glory. He won't go until he finds his Love in the dark (creep...), and when he Takes it all, he gives us the Cold shoulder, vaguely blaming all of his problems on "Someone like you". All I ask is, why me?


    I have too much time on my hands...

    I still think Windows 7 was the Best edition they ever made, Granted I have not tried 8.1 but 10 I did not enjoy it very much.
