microsoft sets may 9 as original windows 10's retirement date

As expected, Microsoft named May 9 as the date it will issue the final updates for the debut edition of Windows 10 that launched in 2015.Two months ago, Microsoft had extended support for Windows 10 version 1507—Microsoft labels feature upgrades by year and month—from March to May, but did not specify the date in the latter month. Computerworld anticipated May 9 as the end-of-support because that is the date for the month’s Patch Tuesday.Another document put it plainly. “The time has now come to end servicing for version 1507,” the support document read.Stopping support for Windows 10 editions—Microsoft released the fourth on Tuesday—is an important part of the company’s software-as-a-service model. The company has pledged to support an individual edition, such as 1507, not for 10 years, a

galaxy s8 microsoft edition: what’s in the box?

Microsoft announced their own Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition with a release date that matches carrier editions. The difference between this phone and the original is not Windows Phone, or even a custom user interface. Instead, this Microsoft Edition will simply install several Microsoft-made apps from the Google Play App Store.“A Microsoft customization is applied to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Microsoft Edition,” said a statement from Microsoft today. This customization will take place “when the devices are unboxed and connected to Wi-Fi.” These apps could more than likely be downloaded on mobile data, too – but Microsoft would likely rather set the phone up for the user at the store, instead – complete with Microsoft-provided Wi-Fi. Included in the customization process is

microsoft begins denying updates to some windows 7 users

Microsoft this week began blocking Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs equipped with the very newest processors from receiving security updates, making good on a policy it announced but did not implement last year.But the company also refused to provide security fixes to Windows 7 systems that were powered by AMD's "Carrizo" CPUs, an architecture that was supposed to continue receiving patches.The decree that led to the update bans, whether allowable or not under Microsoft's new policy, was revealed in January 2016, when the company said making Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 run on the latest processors was "challenging." Microsoft then ruled that Windows 10 would be the only supported edition on seventh-generation and later CPUs and simultaneously dictated a substantial shortening of support of both edition

microsoft finally reveals what data windows 10 collects from your pc

There are all kinds of new features in the Windows 10 Creators Update rolling out on April 11, but one change really sticks out. Greater transparency about the data that Microsoft collects from your PC.There are new dashboard screens that all Windows 10 users will see the first time they install or upgrade to the Creators Update. Perhaps more interestingly, for the first time Microsoft has detailed information about the user data it collects for diagnostics.Diagnostics collectionLet’s start with the diagnostics collection, as Microsoft’s come under heavy fire from privacy advocates for refusing to allow users to disable it completely while simultaneously refusing to detail exactly what information Windows 10 collects from users.Microsoft published two Technet pages describing the data Micr

microsoft's windows server os runs on arm, with help from qualcomm

Microsoft has warmed up to Qualcomm to make a Windows 10 PC based on its ARM chip, and now the companies are bringing Windows Server OS to ARM.For the first time ever, Microsoft is expected to show the Windows Server OS running on an ARM server. The server runs on Qualcomm’s Centriq 2400, an ARM-based chip designed for cloud servers.The server is being shown at the Open Project Compute Summit being held in Santa Clara, California, on Wednesday and Thursday.The ARM-based Windows Server hardware is for Microsoft’s internal use. No information was shared on when Windows Server would be available for ARM servers.The ARM-based Windows Server hardware is for Microsoft’s internal use.

microsoft pulls the plug on windows vista next month

Despite Microsoft’s continuous efforts to get people to upgrade the latest version of Windows, hold outs who stick to old versions will always remain. If you’re still on Windows Vista, though, you may want to consider upgrading, as Microsoft will be dropping support for that particular version next month.Mainstream support for Windows Vista ended nearly five years ago, but on April 11, Microsoft will be dropping extended support for decade-old OS. This means that users who are still on Windows Vista will no longer receive crucial security updates, potentially leaving their machines at risk.Beyond the security risks that come along with using an outdated version of Windows, you also run the risk of encountering programs that won’t work with your PC. As Windows Vista fades into the shadows,

how to block automatic updates in the next version of windows 10

Forced updating has rated as the No. 1 complaint about Windows 10 for almost two years. Now we’re going to see some significant improvements. Windows 10 Creators Update, due next month, will include the ability to temporarily block forced updates—but only for a subset of Win10 customers.We don’t know exactly what the interface will look like, but answers released yesterday by Microsoft show in broad strokes what update blocking options will be available and how they’ll work. The functions will be coming next month, in version 1703 of Windows 10.Let’s start with the basics.Windows 10 computers attached to a managed network get their updates through the network. If your Win10 PC is on a network that runs WSUS, SCCM, or another update server, the network admin gets to decide which updates get

windows 10 fix will prevent updates from wrecking your day

Microsoft "heard that unexpected reboots are disruptive if they happen at the wrong time," said Director of Program Management John Cable. That's an incredible understatement, as inopportune Windows 10 updates have ruined so many business presentations, important work and even live weather broadcasts (above) that they're a running meme. Customers have sued Microsoft (and won) over the problem, which may have prompted the company to finally do something about it.With the Creators Update, Microsoft added an icon in the Windows Update Settings page that shows if your device is up-to-date. Once it arrives, you can schedule when to time it or simply snooze it for three days, as shown below. You can then snooze or reschedule it again if that still doesn't work. Furthermore, you'll have more choi

like in pcs, microsoft and arm look to topple intel in servers

Intel's TV marketing campaign says the company is driving 98 percent of the cloud. That statistic will come under attack with some chip and OS announcements on Wednesday.The most significant announcement: Microsoft's Windows Server OS now running on ARM chips. The OS was exclusive to x86 chips, but now customers can consider ARM chips to run Windows Server.Microsoft did not announce an official date for an ARM version of Windows Server, though the software company is using such systems internally. The announcement was made on the opening day of Open Compute Project's U.S. Summit in Santa Clara, California.At the summit, Qualcomm showed a new 48-core 1U server running its Centriq 2400 ARM chip. The server is based on Microsoft's Project Olympus server design and was shown running Windows Se

microsoft reveals which windows phones will be getting creators update

While the new Creators Update officially rolled out to Windows 10 users on the PC earlier this week, Windows Phone holdouts are still waiting. That will change on April 25th, however, Microsoft has stated that only a handful of devices will be eligible for the update. Even more disappointing is that Windows Phones that don’t support the Creators Update will no longer receive future development builds from the Windows Insider Program.Jumping right to it, here are the 11 Windows Phone devices that will receive the Creators Update:– Alcatel IDOL 4S– Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL– HP Elite x3– Lenovo Softbank 503LV– MCJ Madosma Q601– Microsoft Lumia 550– Microsoft Lumia 640/640XL– Microsoft Lumia 650– Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL– Trinity NuAns Neo– VAIO VPB051These details come via a new blog post

windows 10 creators update release date finally announced

It’s been a long time coming, but we finally have a release date for the Windows 10 Creators Update. Microsoft has been talking up this update for months now, unleashing the first significant details about the Creators Update way back in October. Now, after six solid months of hearing all about it, it’s almost time for it to launch.The Creators Update comes with a whole bunch of new features focused on (surprise!) creators, whether they’re individual artists or businesses using Windows 10 for their enterprise needs. One of the biggest additions in the Creators Update comes in the form of Paint 3D, which retools the age-old program to allow its users to create 3D models and then share them online with others.There’s also a push for mixed reality coming with the Creators Update.

microsoft rolls out build 15063.11, the latest stage in windows 10 creators upda

As of a few minutes ago, Microsoft has released KB 4106250 to Windows Insider subscribers in the Fast, Slow, and Preview rings.Yes, it's a cumulative update for a version of Windows 10 that hasn't been released as yet -- and it's perfectly normal. It downloads in the blink of an eye and installs almost as fast. There are no announced changes that'll interest you.As I mentioned earlier this week, that's part of the normal rollout routine that we've witnessed three times to date, for versions 1507, 1511, and 1607.While the Windows lemmings rush to install the latest, developers at Microsoft still have their heads down, building a big first-time patch -- or series of patches -- for Creators Update. When version 1703 hits, it will likely incorporate build 15063 and some aggregation of patches.

microsoft’s new love for android is no betrayal

The news that Microsoft will sell Samsung’s Galaxy S8 in its U.S. stores came as a surprise to many. Shouldn’t Microsoft be concentrating on keeping its Windows 10 Mobile platform going, while we wait for the (perhaps) mythical Surface Phone? It’s a move that’s made many Windows Mobile fans unhappy.But pull back the curtains a little, and it turns out that Microsoft has slowly been making inroads on the Android ecosystem, co-opting Google’s platform and absorbing it into its overall enterprise software strategy. Starting with Office 365, Microsoft has been slowly bending Android to its own image, even providing its own lock screen and launchers to give it that distinctly Microsoft feel.Making a Microsoft AndroidIt’s an approach I’ve become very familiar with over the last year, when I stop

.net framework or .net core? when to use which

It’s been 17 years since Microsoft unveiled its .Net strategy at its Forum 2000 event. Although the resulting marketing blunders led to some confusion about exactly what .Net was—the name turned up on both servers and applications—the underlying development tools become the heart of Microsoft’s engagement with enterprises around the world. .Net has also grown beyond the Windows ecosystem, bringing Microsoft tools and technologies to iOS, Android, and now Linux.
But that growth has led to a new set of questions: Which .Net should I be using—.Net Framework, .Net Standard, Xamarin’s Mono (and the closely related Unity 3D gaming tools), or .Net Core?
With four sets of libraries and a trio of runtimes, it's harder to choose the foundation for your .Net applications. Recently that question becam

discover the power of bash on windows

Microsoft Windows may be the dominant player on the desktop, but the rapidly increasing open source software market—especially for admin and dev tools—clearly favors Linux. Not to mention the mobile market, where Android uses Linux variants. If you’re a developer on Windows, the drumbeat to get hip to Linux capabilities keeps getting louder.
Over the years, Microsoft has introduced various workarounds for using Linux capabilities on Windows, such as PowerShell with SSH and Cygwin and MSYS. Running Linux inside a virtual machine is another option. But VMs consume a significant amount of resources and don’t provide a first-class Linux experience, as you can’t edit local files or get full access to local drives, for example.
As the IT world is turning toward Linux for many projects, Microsoft

microsoft releases win10 creators update—but proceed with caution

Microsoft has quietly released the full, original disk images (ISOs) for build 15063 of Windows 10 version 1703—the Creators Update, codename Redstone 2—and yesterday Windows fan Steve Truman, @KPRP42, published a list of links to Microsoft’s Techbench download servers.I recommend that you do not install these ISOs. In fact, over the course of the week I will describe how to avoid the Creators Update, at least until it’s ready for prime time. No matter how you slice it, Creators Update isn’t ready for any PC that you rely on.That said, if you have a sacrificial machine and don’t want to join the 10 million Windows Insiders in their unpaid beta testing, you can see a description of the downloads along with their links in Andy Weir’s Neowin article from last night.Microsoft has already pushe

windows 10 creators update is now officially rolling out

Let a thousand updates bloom! Microsoft has just finally fired off the release engines to bring the latest major update of Windows 10 to the general public. Of course, it’s not as big a jump as Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 considering Microsoft’s new found path of rolling updates, but it’s a significant one nonetheless. Microsoft has already been teasing and revealing what users can expect so there are very few surprises. At least the positive ones. So far, the rollout hasn’t yet been met with botched updates and broken systems, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.Unsurprisingly, Microsoft has a very long list of new features and changes that comprise the perhaps misnamed Creators Update, but we can highlight a few that center on gaming, the Edge browser, and privacy. Ironically, nothing relate

algoriddim ports djay pro for ios to windows 10 using microsoft’s bridge

Algoriddim has ported its popular djay Pro software from iOS to Windows 10 for the first time. djay Pro will still be developed on iOS and the Mac using the latest platform features like Touch Bar support for example, and today’s release expands Algoriddim’s reach from iOS/watchOS, macOS, and Android to Windows.Algoriddim actually relied greatly on djay Pro for iOS to bring the professional DJ software to Windows…Sony A6500Remember Microsoft’s Bridge tool for iOS that launched a few years ago — djay Pro for Windows largely relied on that for turning djay Pro for iOS into a working Windows app.For an app as powerful and feature-packed as djay Pro, it’s a pretty stunning example of how developers can take a product for iOS and make it viable on another platform like Windows without starting

windows 10 creators update will take months to roll out, microsoft confirms

Users waiting for Windows 10’s Creators Update, which is expected to release soon, may need to be patient. Data released Wednesday by AdDuplex suggests that Microsoft’s Windows 10 Anniversary Update took months to roll out to users after it was released last August, and the same pace could apply to the Creators Update. In fact, Microsoft said today that the rollout will indeed take place in a phased approach, with newer devices targeted first. Microsoft sources had told PCWorld that the rollout was deliberately slower than with the Anniversary Update, just to be careful.  “We’ll iterate this process over a period of several months until all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide are offered the Creators Update,” the company said in a blog post. AdDuplex, which runs its own ad netw

microsoft bids farewell to windows vista

Software giant Microsoft has finally said goodbye to 10-year-old Windows Vista operating system that had debuted with severe criticism.According to a report in Verge on Tuesday, the users of Windows Vista will have to move to a more recent version of Windows to remain secure."Codenamed Longhorn, Windows Vista was originally supposed to revolutionise Windows with a new file system and user interface. Microsoft's development of Longhorn spiralled out of control, and the company was forced to reset its plans," the report noted.The deathknell for Vista was blown since last year when Firefox indicated it would support the obsolete OS until next September, while Google said Gmail would not work with it later in 2017.Then came a blow from gaming titan Blizzard that declared to "cut Vista users of
