Lenovo’s Official Statement about the Superfish Incident; List of impacted systems Commented on: 18 weeks ago (February 23, 2015)

Caveat Emptor: don't expect others to do for you what you can best do for yourself. Waiting on "government" is no solution at all, as often the government makes a bigger mess than the one it...

I'm a Mac and a PC: Virtualizing Windows on the Mac Commented on: 19 weeks ago (February 16, 2015)

@ br208

When you run OS X on a Mac you *are* running it on a "Windows" PC...;) The only reason you can't legally run OS X on any other "Windows PC" is because Apple ties OS X artificially...

Microsoft Not Yet Ready to Describe What "Supported Lifetime of the Device" Means for Windows 10 Commented on: 21 weeks ago (February 4, 2015)

@ whatwasithinking

Yea, it is confusing in one sense...;) But I think Microsoft's intent here is actually to make this very simple, as in:

1) There will be no more monolithic...

Windows 10 Build 9926 as a daily driver Commented on: 21 weeks ago (February 4, 2015)

It's surprising to see people writing responses to "Paul" without having read the byline of the article--and apparently having missed all of the changes that took place here in January...;) I...

Enabling "Hey Cortana" in Windows 10 Build 9926 Commented on: 22 weeks ago (January 29, 2015)

Getting your bugs on Apple's radar Commented on: 22 weeks ago (January 29, 2015)

Windows 10 Registry Tweaks for Hidden Features Commented on: 22 weeks ago (January 28, 2015)

That's EnableStartMenu If you "0" this...

Gotchas with Windows 10 Build 9926, Known and Unknown Commented on: 22 weeks ago (January 28, 2015)

These three I have experienced:

*You can no longer drag tiles from the new Start Menu to the desktop.

True. I'm hoping this is temporary--looks like Microsoft is discouraging the...

Microsoft may be close to releasing a new Windows 10 Technical Preview build Commented on: 22 weeks ago (January 28, 2015)

9926 is very stable for me thus far. One thing I will never do is to install an intermediate build between official build releases--9901 wasted a lot of my time.

A Formal SuperSite Intro from Me, Jason Snell Commented on: 23 weeks ago (January 23, 2015)
