In the striptease to “8” M$ lets out that they will create graphs to show how downloads are going. Imagine that. Instead of a few words and numbers they are going to create a data-structure for every transfer and update it periodically and redraw the graphs. That should do a lot to waste resources on ARM, eh? Updating a periodic sample to create a moving average was too easy. Instead they want to make a big deal about a download.
Aims to fix comical download/copy ‘time to go’ estimates
That’s M$ for you. Instead of improving the sampling or revising the algorithm, they are going to rip and replace with a much heavier burden as if we have nothing better to do with our IT.
