Hmmm.....interesting.  I'm using the new beta driver from Dell on the Alienware Alpha.  

I wonder if Valve can also begin testing this in their Steam OS.  I asked if they (Dell) would develop a WDDM 2.0 driver for Windows 10 Tech Preview.  The GPU is custom by NVIDIA.  XD

Awesome news!
 
Chromium Team has recently started to work on a Chrome Packaged App version of the Chrome Remote Desktop Web-App aka Chromoting in the Chromium world.

You can play with it right now by downloading an experimental build of it at https://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/Linux_x64/206911/remoting-webapp.v2.zip and load it as an unpacked extension in chrome://extensions. Be aware though that it's not stable and can break at any time ;)

We’re pleased to announce the release of UIAutomator 2.0! This version is a significant update from the previous release. Most importantly, UI Automator is now based on Android Instrumentation and you can build and run tests with the ‘./gradlew connectedCheck’ command.

This release is packaged with the Android Testing Support Library so that we will be able to provide updates more frequently in the future. You can get started with UIAutomator by downloading the latest Android Support Repository through the SDK Manager.

Documentation is available on developers.android.com (http://goo.gl/wJq00a). Happy Testing!

Yeah, I am happy that the fcc "voted" in favor of net neutrality. Until we see the full release of the passed documents I'm going be a tad more on the pessimistic side. In theory this should be a very exciting turn of events.
