It is not the intention to fan the flames, so to speak, but would it not be possible to include original details? There are several of which I can conceive that the competitors do not have. (Maza (talk) 23:33, 7 July 2019 (BST))

@Maza What do you mean by "original details"? X010 (talk) 08:25, 8 July 2019 (BST)
@X010 I apologize for the confusion. By "original details" I mean details that are not mentioned elsewhere (e.g., at BetaWiki). The current list of facts on the "Do you know" page includes details that are mentioned elsewhere.
@Maza I got your point, but the challenge then would be to find something that is a 'fact' and that others do not have. Do you have some ideas or examples on this? X010 (talk) 10:15, 9 July 2019 (BST)
@X010} I do have examples of details that are factual and that no competitor has. Please allow me to provide the following examples:

Did you know...

  • ...that the Saved Search feature had four different extensions (autolist, vfolder, search, search-ms) throughout the development of Windows Vista?
  • ...that the Library—a Saved Search (then Virtual Folder) that Microsoft intended to be the central location for the discovery and organization of items—was included from Windows Vista Build 5219 to Build 5308?
  • ...that a "Shared To Me" Saved Search in a Microsoft patent can be created and used in Windows Vista?
  • ...that Windows Vista Build 5112 includes the List Pane?
  • ...that photos can be stacked by camera models in Windows Vista to view all photos that were taken with a specific camera?

Please note that these are just examples and I am not necessarily requesting their use—largely because I am unsure how you or others would feel about them; however, if you would like to use them (to supplement or substitute the existing details) that would be fine.

@Maza I like them, but in my opinion they are a bit technical for people to understand. I mean, I think we should include some of them, and include some others that people can understand with ease. -SistemaRayoXP (Tlajomulco, Jalisco, MX) (talk) 22:58, 9 July 2019 (BST)
