So here is ars' take on gaming on an 8k montor

They're probably going to get a lot of hype, but it will take few years (3 or 4) for this to really take off.

The FCC is claiming that when both segments ran they were hit by a DDoS attack.

How in the hell is that possible? Maybe the FCC has complete inadequate servers or doesn't know the difference between actual/real traffic and a DDos.

Certainly that can't be it, can it?

It's totally over priced for what it is.

Yes Windows 10 Pro is free until the end of the year, so that's nice.

As for Windows 10S - it's dead to me because it won't let you change the default browser from Edge or the search provider from Bing.

Seriously Microsoft? Didn't actions like this land you in court in the 90s?
