So I have been called a bunch lately by Datto. I know about their technology and have generally heard good things. Anyone here use them? What do you think? Anyone have them integrated in to an RMM (specifically N-Able if you use it)

I shouldn't be surprised.
 
"I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend's existence," the boy's father told NYDN. "If he did, I'm sure he'd bring him right back."

Well, the One Ring was, most definitely, a weapon...
A fourth grader named Aiden Steward was suspended Friday, after school officials determined he had threatened to use his magic ring to make another boy disappear.

Anyone in here run fedora or any Linux distro on a thinkpad yoga? I want to know if the touch interface works and if the handwriting recognition works.

Not a yoga, but the x1 carbon. Touch screen works well enough at picking up location and responsiveness but I haven't been impressed with its support within GUIs themselves... Maybe I'm using the wrong interfaces though. I turned it off.

So I am looking for some advice, and I think everyone here comes from a similar unique perspective that I have. I have been using Linux (Fedora, specifically) as my primary desktop OS for a very long time. However, I am currently debating moving back to Windows as my primary OS with Windows 10. The main reasons are all the RMM tools are built for Windows. We use N-Central which is web based, and almost 90 of the functionality works natively in Linxu, but the remote support application requires a Windows client as does their custom automation tool builder (basically drag and drop powershell builder).

My current set up is a Fedora 20 desktop and I use a win7 vm to use the RMM tools I can't use in Linux. It has worked pretty well and I don't really have any complaints. It does use more resources that way than if I could just use Linux (not sure if it would be the same resource usage if I was using just Windows). I have gotten my setup to be exactly what works for me and is really efficient. But I am starting to get close to life cycle time for my laptop, and it is time to load a new version of Fedora. I find myself missing features that the Windows 2 in 1s can do like the Lenovo ThinkPad yoga or the Surface Pro 3. One of my biggest hang ups with Windows was the lack of Workspaces. That seems to be fixed in 10.

Basically, my concern moving is two-fold:

1. Linux really works for me and I enjoy using it.
2. I manage several Linux installations and Linux consulting is a line of business for us, so I am worried that not using it everyday will make me rusty.

My motivation for moving is:
1. Don't need a vm for RMM tools
2. The features of the two in ones.

I welcome any thoughts, but please let's avoid letting this devolve into a Linux vs Windows holy war

+Bobby kneisel I have definitely gotten really rusty in Linux because we don't really have any customer's using it. The only time I ever get on it is when I get a few moments of personal goof-off time and log into my VM instance of Lubuntu to play around.

Windows 10 will be free for users of Windows 7 & 8.1! This is big news for small businesses as Windows 10 is shaping up to be a real home run. I have been running the preview for a couple of months now and have been really impressed! Stay tuned for some thoughts on how this will help SMBs

Summary:Microsoft shared a bit of its pricing strategy for Windows 10, and provided he first public demonstration of Windows 10 mobile.

If you have a Audi or a Volkswagen, this is the place to go!!!! I have a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta, and I have been working with the team at Motorkars for a couple of years now. I have had them do several repairs over the last couple of years, and I cannot stress enough how well I have been treated! They have saved me a ton of money versus the dealer, their customer service is better than almost any place I have been, and they genuinely take pride in what they do. I have been able to call with any questions I may have, and have received advice on what to do and what not to do. I have always felt well taken care of, the repairs have been great, and they have always gone the extra mile to take care of me. For instance, the most recent repair was done 2 days early and less than quoted because they were able to stay late and finish it. This saved me not only the cost of 2 days worth of rental cost but also a ton of time getting things organized.
