Daily News Stuff 16 June 2021

Top Story

  • Windows 11 has leaked. (Thurrott.com)

    Microsoft has adopted a MacOS style application dock but kept the Start button, which makes no sense. Fortunately you can change a setting - somewhere - to make it go back to normal.

    More screenshots.

    It does look pretty, for the most part. You will be shocked to learn that the computer management interface still hasn't been updated from NT 4.

    Essentially the Windows 10 UI has been refreshed but all the older stuff - Windows 8 holdovers, Windows 7, 2000, NT, whatever - hasn't changed at all.

    That said, this is a leaked preview build and not the final product, so maybe something will be fixed before release.

Anime of the day is Kimi ni Todoke, a delightful high school romance series from 2009. The manga was originally envisioned as a one-shot - that is, a single comic of perhaps 30 pages - but in the end it ran for 30 volumes.

The anime series aired early during the manga run so it doesn't get anywhere near the end of the overall story, but the first season wraps things up very nicely. A little too nicely, because I was actually rather irritated by the start of season two when they had to create conflict to get things moving again.

Funny thing is, if you check the Wikipedia page and search for Asperger's you won't find it, but heroine Sawako Kuronuma is an absolute textbook case. It's quite a good study of it, in fact.
