Mieka had read the piece, just a few lines about how Cade would doubtless have new and startling plays to be performed in Gallantrybanks and at Trials. The tone of it had been just slightly sardonic, as if Tobalt was annoyed that he could no longer get an interview from the eminently quotable Cayden Silversun. Mistress Mirdley had finished wrapping the carrot bread.
He always liked it when he was a little boy. Mieka was appalled to see sudden fierce tears in her eyes. He leaped to his feet and threw his arms around her. She shook her head and extricated herself from his hug. And it's a few dozen more turnings he'll be doing before that happens. Is that basket full?
Tuck a cloth in, then, and get along with you. Cayden's only companion in his flat—well, his only steady companion; there were plenty of girls, all of them transitory—was a ginger-striped cat named Rumble, inexplicably brought home as a kitten by Blye's cat, Bompstable. It was as if, Jedris had remarked, Bompstable knew Cade required some sort of company, and went out to find a suitable candidate.
In the hire-hack, with a hamper of food between them, Mieka looked at Dery and asked, "Could we stop off someplace maybe? I really ought to bring a gift.
Mistress Mirdley will be furious if I'm out after dark. And I want to spend some time with my brother," he finished in a voice much too grim for someone not quite twelve years old. Mieka directed the driver to take them through a convenient shopping district. For a full quarter of an hour, he turned from side to side in the hack, peering through the windows, desperate for a shop that caught his imagination.
I'm sure he'd rather nobody remembered at all. When Cayden turned nineteen, Dery had given him a silver hawk pin and Mieka had taken him to see the Shadowshapers at the Kiral Kellari. On his twentieth Namingday, he'd been at Fairwalk Manor, giving Mieka no opportunity to celebrate. To make up for that, Mieka had thrown a lavish party at Hilldrop Crescent for Cade's twenty-first. His twenty-second had been another Shadowshapers show—the one where Princess Miriuzca had shown up with Lady Megueris Mindrising, both of them dressed as young men.
And a grand lark that had been; an exploit Mieka wasn't sure he'd ever be able to surpass Forty-five; Mieka couldn't imagine it. But Cade had seen it, and by his scant telling, it had been a wonderful evening. Last year they'd all gathered at Blye's glassworks, ostensibly to watch her make their new withies but in reality to present Cade with the complete table service for eight she had spent weeks making.
She had forbidden them to transport the plates, bowls, cups, goblets, and platters to Cade's flat that evening, relenting only when Mieka promised a doubling and tripling of the cushioning spell his mother had taught him. Problem was, he'd had quite a lot to drink—although so had everyone else, raising the new wine goblets again and again, then deciding that the brandy snifters also deserved a try-out, and of course there were those bottles of Auntie Brishen's whiskey that needed sampling in the cut-crystal glasses, and Mieka still winced with the memory of the crashing and splintering of two inadequately cushioned crates down four flights of stairs.

And one couldn't mend glass with an Affinity spell, not and have it hold water ever again. There were plenty of things that needed mending after these last two years. Nothing that was permanently broken, or at least so Mieka told himself with grim resolve—well, except in Alaen Blackpath's case. The loss of his cousin Briuly two years ago this Midsummer dawn had shattered him.
A month later, he'd shown up at Sakary Grainer's house in Gallantrybanks with a glass thorn in one hand and a little gold velvet pouch of dragon tears in the other, and announced to Chirene, Sakary's wife, that if she didn't run away with him that very night, he'd begin using and wouldn't stop until she was his or he was dead. Romuald Needler, the Shadowshapers' manager, had succeeded in hushing up most of the scandal. But the fact remained that Chirene had taken her children and gone to live with Chattim Czillag's wife, Deshenanda, until the Shadowshapers returned that autumn from the Royal Circuit.
Alaen wasn't dead. The shop featured all manner of decorative collectibles. Mirrors, figurines, clocks, imagings, paintings, exotic flowers from faraway lands preserved under glass or with magic.

But Mieka knew exactly what he wanted, having seen it displayed in the window, and a few moments later emerged with a wrapped package almost as tall as Derien. Because if what we've been having is good luck in the theater, I'll risk it. Me Mum calls it un sympathetic magic. Not that anything truly awful had happened onstage—unless one counted Cade's last new play. That had been over a year ago now, and the reactions had been Nobody, including the rest of Touchstone, really understood what he'd meant to do.
Window of Time
Mieka's analysis was that whereas theater patrons didn't mind thinking a bit, both during and after a play, they didn't much enjoy thinking as a grim hour-long slog through far too many ideas. Boy and girl in love. Girl dies in tragic accident. Boy tries to broker a deal with the Lady to go get her; Lady is moved by True True Love and says fine, but on your way out, you mustn't look back.

Boy girds himself to travel into whichever Hell girl inhabits though why she deserves any of them is left unclear , journeys through various unsavory provinces of punishment, increasingly nasty but not gruesome or bloody or even scary. At least Mieka could have had some good old gory fun with that sort of thing, been creative with the dragons that feasted on flesh that healed in an hour, or that poor stupid pillicock forever putting sand into a leaky hourglass, or the one about somebody standing lip-deep in a lake of shit. Cade's Hells were all intellectual which didn't surprise Mieka one bit, but made for a colossally dull play.
Boy is distracted from search for girl by philosophical conversations with the tenants of each Hell, blither blather blether. Boy finally remembers what he's there for, finds girl, fingers burned and bleeding as she spins molten gold into straw. Boy leads girl back to the entrance gates. She trips on a rock silly cow. He looks back to make sure she's all right, and just as their Eyes Meet with Longing and then with Sudden Horror, she vanishes. Windows 8 and Windows 8. On September 30, , Microsoft announced Windows 10 as the successor to Windows 8.
It was released on July 29, , and addresses shortcomings in the user interface first introduced with Windows 8.

In February , Microsoft announced the migration of its Windows source code repository from Perforce to Git. This migration involved 3. Multilingual support is built into Windows since Windows 3. The language for both the keyboard and the interface can be changed through the Region and Language Control Panel. Components for all supported input languages, such as Input Method Editors , are automatically installed during Windows installation in Windows XP and earlier, files for East Asian languages, such as Chinese, and right-to-left scripts, such as Arabic, may need to be installed separately, also from the said Control Panel.
Third-party IMEs may also be installed if a user feels that the provided one is insufficient for their needs. Interface languages for the operating system are free for download, but some languages are limited to certain editions of Windows. This is used for most languages in emerging markets. Full Language Packs, which translates the complete operating system, are only available for specific editions of Windows Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Windows Vista and 7, and all editions of Windows 8, 8.
They do not require a specific base language, and are commonly used for more popular languages such as French or Chinese.

These languages cannot be downloaded through the Download Center, but available as optional updates through the Windows Update service except Windows 8. The interface language of installed applications are not affected by changes in the Windows interface language. Availability of languages depends on the application developers themselves.
Windows 8 and Windows Server introduces a new Language Control Panel where both the interface and input languages can be simultaneously changed, and language packs, regardless of type, can be downloaded from a central location. The PC Settings app in Windows 8. Changing the interface language also changes the language of preinstalled Windows Store apps such as Mail, Maps and News and certain other Microsoft-developed apps such as Remote Desktop. The above limitations for language packs are however still in effect, except that full language packs can be installed for any edition except Single Language, which caters to emerging markets.
Windows NT included support for several different platforms before the x86 -based personal computer became dominant in the professional world. Although some these platforms implement bit computing , the operating system treated them as bit. However, Windows , the successor of Windows NT 4. With the introduction of the Intel Itanium architecture IA , Microsoft released new versions of Windows to support it. Itanium versions of Windows XP and Windows Server were released at the same time as their mainstream x86 counterparts. Windows Server line continues to support this platform until Windows Server ; Windows Server R2 is the last Windows operating system to support Itanium architecture.
On April 25, , Microsoft released Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows Server x64 Editions to support the x or simply x64 , the eighth generation of x86 architecture. Windows CE officially known as Windows Embedded Compact , is an edition of Windows that runs on minimalistic computers , like satellite navigation systems and some mobile phones.
The OEMs and device makers can modify and create their own user interfaces and experiences, while Windows CE provides the technical foundation to do so. Windows CE was the core from which Windows Mobile was derived. Windows Phone 8 however, is based on the same NT-kernel as Windows 8. In Microsoft announced that it would start using Git , an open source version control system created by Linus Torvalds. Microsoft has previously used a proprietary version control system called "Source Depot". Because of its large, decades-long history, the Windows codebase is not especially well suited to the decentralized nature of Linux development that Git was originally created to manage.
Each Git repository contains a complete history of all the files, which proved unworkable for Windows developers because cloning the repository takes several hours. These numbers are easiest monthly numbers to find that track real use, but they may not mirror installed base or sales numbers in recent years of devices. They are consistent with server numbers in next section.
In terms of the number of devices shipped with the operating system installed, on smartphones, Windows Phone was the third-most-shipped OS 2. Use of the latest version Windows 10 has exceeded Windows 7 globally since early Consumer versions of Windows were originally designed for ease-of-use on a single-user PC without a network connection, and did not have security features built in from the outset.
