Memory Usage: Android 4.2.2 vs Windows 8.1

This result may be surprising to many Android users.
It’s just that Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) uses more memory than desktop version of Windows 8.1 x64 RTM, but unlike Windows 7 and 8, Windows 8.1 requires more memory to start up.

If you remember, I was able to run both Windows 7 and Windows 8 on 128MB of RAM. However, Windows 8.1 requires 256MB to boot (at least running stable), 512MB for installation and 1gig to run comfortably.

Impressive, isn’t it? 😉

Windows 8.1 RTM – still buggy!

Personally, I like changes in Windows 8.1. Everything is clearer, but why no one from the very large company (more than 89 thousand employees) done a guide-animation in Windows 8? After a year we received a Help App, Start Screen was changed and the Start Button has been restored – HURRAY! 😛

However, it is not relevant to the subject under discussion. I informed Microsoft about a bug in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1, but they ignored it. I participated in the Mitigation Bypass Bounty Program with prizes of $ 100,000 but it was a big scam. A Microsoft employee replied and said that Microsoft is not responsible for this bug (I can bypass Windows Logon Screen). If so, who is responsible for it… Santa Claus? First of all, Microsoft has not paid the award, but the worst part was that they did not fix the bug!

I have finally decided to disclose all information about the bug. Everything will be posted on my site on October, 16th, 2013!

Why I hate HP laptops?

Fortunately, I never bought any HP laptops but I have fixed a lot of them, for my friends. I don’t know about the new models, but I suppose they didn’t change much on that –  moreover, new laptop prices drop every year!

Reasons why NOT to buy a HP laptop:

  1. Broke soon after warranty expired!
  2. All HP laptops have a bad design for cooling!
  3. HP loves pre-installed Bloatware & Crapware
  4. They’re more expensive than other good brands.

It’s time to break some records!

Today I bought Corsair Vengeance 16GB Quad Channel DDR3 Memory Kit and decide to break some benchmark records. I’m not using Liquid Nitroge only water cooler with custom fans.
It will be really hard to get to the Top 20

Before we look at the numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on Windows 8 Pro 64-bit operating system.

Bill, do you like me now?

Today First Ever presents you a comic with Windows 8.1 in the main role. Steve, you are genius! I guess theoretically, they could move Start Button under the System Tray Clock, but nobody at Microsoft was “smart” enought to figure out how to fix it!
