I see 4 as a rewrite of the kernel and not an incremental increase.
If we take x.y.z as our version scheme then 4 is code base, y is feature and z is fixes. You can amend an additional octet for build number.
I appreciate that no one ever uses version numbering the way I envision it. I can't see the first octet being changed if you aren't doing a rewrite.
It makes Beirut look nice. Go the Strand and see the mall of the 70s with 4 open stores.
If you need directions the homeless and/or drug using folk will be all to happy to punch any part of you they like.
If learning is your thing, don't forget to miss Hugh Baird College. Ask for Charles Rothwell and say you're Gordon from Alive.
I personally believe the biggest mistake that Microsoft made was not killing XP sooner. I had this discusion recently with a friend.
So I went from 3.11 to 95 then 3 years later I had 98. I then waited 2 years and I got ME (let's try and forget) which was such a huge mistake that XP was forced upon the world. So in 2001 I started using XP, not XP SP3 which some people are happily using now or XP64 SP2. Then the release schedule seemed to be extended, we had 6 years before Vista. I liked Vista, I had machines that could handle it. Then we waited a standard 2 years for 7. The release of 8 was 3 years later which is again a reasonable timeframe for updates.
So the problem is not that XP is awesome (it's not). It's that people got left alone with XP for 6 years. This would normally have seen 2 releases in this time, instead it saw none. This led to complacency in the market and has led to the problems now.
Remember, new is always better. They should have killed XP support in 2007 and have replaced it in 2004 in my opinion.
I was so excited, I never get these kinds of scammers calling me.
He had a thick Indian accent and I'd just got home from a business trip.
He told me he was calling from " The International Internet Router Team". He told me it was showing that I had slow internet speeds.
I played along with the dumb idiot and started with the "Oh, it has been slow" bit. Then after a few moments I asked where he was calling from again. He told me then "BT, TalkTalk or one of them".
I was up for a laugh, and asked which one. He sounded confused and then hung up.
You can install Gingerbread without Sense and have no issues.
To install Gingerbread with Sense you need an EXT3/4 partition, as there is no room for apps.
If HTC release with Sense, they might require a section of your memory card been used for ALL apps or more likely they will strip out much of Sense.
If I delete the app from data/app or system/app will the button stop working? I assume I can map it to something else. This could lead to some amusing apps that remap the button.
Mine's the one with the HTC Desire HD running RCMix Kingdom v0.1 with Sense 3.0 with a Facebook button on the home screen.
