Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Maybe it’s time to buy a new PC

If you’ve been holding out with Windows 7 on pre-Skylake hardware, especially, maybe it’s time to revisit that most awful of tasks, and research and then buy a new PC.

App pick of the week: Super Lucky’s Tale

This delightful platformer is cross-compatible between Windows 10 and Xbox One and it runs great even on fairly low-end hardware. $29.99 on the Microsoft Store.

Enterprise pick of the week: Work Folders on Demand

Work Folders on Demand is coming to Redstone 4. This is a new file-access feature (that’s already in the latest Win 10 Insider build. This is a BYOD feature for those with Win Server.

Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: Lots of .NET goodies

Free e-books, samples, videos & other resources that any .NET architect or aspiring one would love. Thanks to Scott Hanselman for the link!

Beer pick of the week: Lefthand Bittersweet (Nitro)

Those famous Colorado-based milk stout makers are now doing an imperial coffee milk stout on nitro that is sooo creamy, smooth and nicely bittersweet.
