I grew tired of the hell of Gates and upgraded to Linux Mint, even my MacbookPro runs 3x faster on it. Stable, secure, light on resources. I am not a pedestrian eagle any more. I soar! Did I mention it being free, as are all application software you may ever need? Installs easily under ten minutes, kiss goodby hardware drivers as even that are built into the kernel. Plug and play easy as pie. Everything just works plus free support from user community. Linux Mint does not require any higher skill levels than Win or Mac.

The eBook Inside Windows 10 is now on Amazon.com - The book “Inside Windows 10 – an early look at Microsoft’s newest Operating System” is now available in the Amazon store. As a writer, I’ve been writing about Microsoft’s Windows software since 2006 and I’m also a former Microsoft MVP for Windows. I’ve been doing research on Microsoft’s next Operating System (now labeled Windows 10) since April of 2014. I wrote this ebook because I realized that a lot of my readers (eve... http://ow.ly/2X7hvS

+Stephen Kane Cause/Effect. It basically got code overhaul with Windows 2000 and jumped from 16bit, to 32bit to 64bit. Don't forget it needs to maintain backwards compatibility. They went with Windows 10 to avoid universal issues with lazy application developers using rehash code from yesteryear and screwing up calls to new commands. Blame the application developers. Windows has to maintain cohesion and compatibility with applications in personal/enterprise realms so they cannot "ditch" the code and start over. They tried with RT and multiple mobile versions before killing them all.

Windows 10 being universal with desktop applets/widgets working across all platforms is new as are the development tools. Cortana is new to desktop. Streaming games from XBox One to Windows 10 computer is new and could change gaming.

The browser issue is being fixed with Spartan (In latest build) which moves forward. Internet Explorer will be phased out as they recognized it's broken beyond repair. They saw Chrome's acceptance and responded. Again, compatibility with legacy applications especially Intranets/Sharepoint sites built around IE's annoying coding will dictate a timely "death" for IE.

It's free unlike other versions of Windows for vast majority of users, again never before in history of Microsoft. Now they are at least talking making it open source but how that plays out would take serious thought and reassurance to the Enterprise community where actual revenues are generated.

Next Windows 10 For Phones Preview Build Launches Friday - That should give enthusiasts plenty of time over the weekend to take the new version for a spin. The next Windows 10 for Phones preview version was, by some estimates, set for late last month. But Microsoft apparently needed some extra time to test it out on all devices. And now Gabriel, Aul, head of the Windows Insider program has revealed on Windows Weekly that the company plans on launching a new preview buil... http://ow.ly/2X6XOh

So What Exactly Is This Redstone Codename? - News broke out earlier today about Redstone, which is a codename for the next refresh of Windows 10, scheduled for release next year, in two waves apparently. As discussed here. And apart from these little nuggets of information, the most interesting element of this new project is the codename Microsoft has chosen for it — and that is because we don’t have any intelligence on the features that will be part of this new refresh... http://ow.ly/2X3VYS

Redstone Arrives In Two Waves, June And October 2016 - Windows 10 may still be a while away, but Microsoft is apparently ready to start work on a new project. Codename Redstone, which according to reports is slated for next year. According to reports like this and this. The first details of what is essentially a large update to Windows 10 have now surfaced, and this has led to more sources weighing in on what they know about Redstone — including the targeted release dat... http://ow.ly/2X3R3V

New Windows 10 Concept Is All About Colorful Splashes - Been a while since we’ve seen a new Windows 10 concept. Probably got something to do with the reports that Microsoft has nailed the base features of the new OS and is now polishing it up. Fixing bugs and all. But while we don’t know the truth behind this theory, it appears that designers are awaiting a look at the (near) final user interface of Windows 10 before trying their hands at their concepts. This new design... http://ow.ly/2X7oJL

I'm on Windows 10 and I gave some feedback on it the other day about letting us have the option of having a Windows 8 start menu or a Windows 10 setup. the reason I suggested that is because when you're on a tablet the Windows 8 Start screen worked flawlessly. They have all these cool designs and features but they will release something and limited you the ability to have any of them but what they choose. From what we learned about Android people like the ability to customize. Give us that ability. Allow us to change the colors in the file explorer like this one here is black and on the technical preview it is white give us the option to change everything about everything if we wanted to do so and a default button to bring it right back to stock.

Windows 8.1 App Watch: StaffPad - The most striking factor of StaffPad is, without doubt, its $69.99 price tag. Which practically makes this music app one of the most expensive applications currently available on the Windows Store. Then again, with all talk of big name app and game developers parting ways with Microsoft’s operating platforms, maybe an app like this is […] The post Windows 8.1 App Watch: StaffPad appeared first on . http://ow.ly/2X45Hz

Kabam Discontinues Windows Phone App Development - Not too long ago, you may remember, that Microsoft penned a deal with a fairly established mobile game developer by the name of Kabam. That was in June 2014. And as part of that agreement, the developer was expected to release some of its more popular games on both the Windows and Windows Phone platforms.
