Windows 10 is the Most Audacious Release in the History of the Platform Commented on: 8 weeks ago (October 24, 2014)

Microsoft Preps Partners for Windows 10 Commented on: 8 weeks ago (October 24, 2014)

Of course you are right about the future of the desktop...finally (j/k)...;) There's no doubt the company lost focus there for awhile. It is remarkable that some might consider a foray into...

A Quick Look at Windows Technical Preview Build 9860 Commented on: 8 weeks ago (October 23, 2014)

I actually had an update failure the first time for 9860--reverted back to the original 10TP automatically. Error code: 0xC1900101-0x3000D. Turned off Defender real-time and tried again, and...

Windows + Mac: Virtualization Commented on: 9 weeks ago (October 20, 2014)

Windows 10 Tip: Switch Between Open Apps and Desktops Commented on: 11 weeks ago (October 6, 2014)

Windows Technical Preview is Microsoft's Alchemy Moment Commented on: 11 weeks ago (October 4, 2014)

Love the new start menu--which I find I'm a little surprised about--uh, that I like it this much, I mean. I really dig the right-left/click nature of it--very nice and maybe the best start menu...

Windows 10 Tip: Swap Between Start Menu and Start Screen Commented on: 11 weeks ago (October 2, 2014)
