You mention at the beginning that you had opportunity to test it, but you then don't actually provide any results of your test. You mostly just describe a few of its features and mention how...

As this was one of the few devices best suited to the full-screen start experience, this seems like one of the sillier Windows 10 features to backport.

I just installed an application yesterday that needed .NET 3.5. What happened? It downloaded and installed .NET 3.5 so the application would work. Even if they ARE killing .NET, they're not making...

But there's no way those computers could even run it. So what would be the point?

Editing implies creating. Seeing as just about anything can create a file in this formats initially, it would be a really silly limitation to prevent the user from CREATING one. It would also...

I don't see any indication it has to be over the final preview build. If it's the RTM version, and it's rolling out to everyone over that time period, then it'll obviously work from 7 and 8.1 as...

Curious whether this means us Insiders will also get it first on the computers that don't actually have the Preview builds installed. I'm running it on my laptop, but I've kept my desktop on 8.1...

ART is a standard function of Lollipop. Seems odd to split that out as its own feature, as I don't think Lollipop even supports the old runtime engine as an option.

There are tons of reasons to have Pro beyond Media Center. Remote Desktop, advanced permissions and sharing abilities, support for more RAM, and a lot of other advanced features. Every time I...

Well, as noted, as long as the recovery partition doesn't have a drive letter, which most don't, it won't wipe them. In your photo it was definitely assigned a drive letter.

Sunday, May 31, 2015 - 16:08

Very odd, indeed. But I just wanted to offer a correction, as this most definitely isn't new to 10 or this build. It's something I see regularly.

Saturday, May 30, 2015 - 11:58

It doesn't erase recovery partitions. Per the tutorials for the way this feature already worked in 8: "You will only see this if you have more than one HDD or partition with a drive letter. If you...

That's very strange. As I said, I've experienced it many times, and it's even displayed here in this tutorial from 2011 in Step 5 of Option One and step 9 of the Option Two, the latter even having...

Can you clarify how this differs from the Windows 8.x process that offers the same thing? I wipe clients' computers regularly using this method, and if they ever have more than one partition, it...

The update is a tiny zip pack that adds in the Google support files. That takes well less than 5 minutes on an Android device, too.

Sunday, May 3, 2015 - 12:58

Why would they do that when they could just stream the content to it like you can with the Xbox Windows 10 app?

I'm currently an Android user, so I'm biased with that experience, but the Hamburger Menu was a MASSIVE improvement in interface, so I'm having a hard time seeing the upset. I love it.

Monday, March 30, 2015 - 18:46

Except there won't be a 10.1. The indication is there may not even be anything after 10. The goal here is to constantly update 10, making the version number meaningless to the user. So I think it'...

I just bought my daughter an HP Stream 7 because it was $80, which was hard to argue with. I was VERY impressed with it, overall, both in performance and utility. But even so, it was VERY hard to...

Monday, March 23, 2015 - 11:22

What part of this news implies it's no longer optional? It was integrated in 8.x, and was optional, so finding out it will be integrated in 10 doesn't tell us anything about whether it still will...

No, they announced Windows RT would receive an update to give it some features from Windows 10 in an attempt to close the gap a little bit. But Windows 10 itself won't be released for RT.

Sunday, March 22, 2015 - 14:36

And yet I find computers from my clients on a regular basis that, indeed, do not have SP1.

Monday, March 2, 2015 - 20:32

There's zero chance of them doing the same with music. Besides the fact that the expected standard for music is to be able to play it offline, all of their music is sold in DRM-free MP3s. That...

I'm a touch typist, and I rarely need to look at my keyboard. But did you notice one of the words I used there? "Rarely." Rarely isn't never. Particularly if I work 90% from a desktop keyboard and...

You're confused. It's doing all of that via IR Blaster. The only way it could do that without an IR Blaster is via HDMI-CEC, which the Xbox One lacks. You're simply not aware it's IR Blasting...

No, "dude," that feature came with 8.1, not 8.

Monday, December 16, 2013 - 16:23

If the prior rumors were true that Microsoft is pushing their OEM partners to dual-boot Windows Phone with Android (I'm unconvinced, but I'll play), this is a necessity. It also simplifies some of...

Too little, too late.

I owned (well, still do) a Zune 80, and I loved my Zune Pass dearly. I canceled it during some financial hard times, and slowly gravitated to relying on music services...

Just like with Office 365, it doesn't support tablets. Any tablets. Also, apparently, 1080p-resolution phones such as the HTC One and Galaxy S4.

The RT has HDMI-out and USB 2.0. By technical limitation, it can't support this docking station's DisplayPort and USB 3.0 needs.
