Rumor of the week: The Insider Program is the one true test program now

Lots are asking if there will still be consumer previews and dev previews in the new Win 10 world. The answer, sources say, is no. Win Insider the the monthly or so tech previews are the new normal.

Codename pick of the week: RyuJIT

RyuJIT is Microsoft’s 64-bit just-in-time .NET compiler. This week, MS open sourced RyuJIT, plus other promised .NET technologies. RyuJIT takes its name from RyuJin, the mythological Japanese sea deity

Beer pick of the week: Mad Hatter Penny Lane pale ale

A true American style pale ale brewed in Liverpool. It only gets a 52 on RateBeer, but my theory is this is because many in England may not realize it’s brewed to be American style: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/mad-hatter-penny-lane-pale/257874/ (thanks Gary Pretty)
