Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Windows 10 Field Guide is now just $9.99

And we will support Windows 10 version 1803 AND 1809!

Also: That big Xbox sale is happening too!

App pick of the week: Microsoft To-Do

Microsoft is once again actively working on its To-Do app and service.

Enterprise pick of the week: Visual Studio 2019

The next version of VS is coming (most likely in 2019) and MS is offering a few hints about what to expect.

Codename pick of the week: BlackForest

Nice find by Aidan Finn (@joe_elway). We knew that Fairfax was the codename for the Azure Government cloud and Mooncake for China. But I don’t think I ever heard BlackForest was for the Azure Germany cloud. A reminder why Azure Germany matters.

Beer pick of the week: Allagash Coolship Resurgam

Allagash Brewing is making a bunch of excellent coolship beers. This one, Resurgam, is a blend of various “spontaneously fermented” beers. Tart and refreshing. The Resurgam name comes from Portland, Maine’s motto: “I shall rise again.”

    <p>"Who uses Word anymore?" Really, guys? You really need to spend a bit more time talking with Microsoft's core customers. We use Word for composing procedures, standards, work instructions, memos, press releases, etc. Folks in Finance, Engineering, Quality, Metrology, and even the production floor use Excel – and they don't just use the basics, either. Everyone uses the full version of Outlook. Powerpoint is what every single presentation is run on. Even though it's not required, the younger folks in Engineering and Quality use OneNote.</p><p><br></p><p>Seriously… just because YOUR industry can do its job running on a toaster doesn't mean that nobody needs powerful office software anymore. Good grief.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#284141"><em>In reply to Daekar:</em></a></blockquote><p>So. There were three people on the podcast. And one of them said that.</p><p><br></p><p>But maybe you should spend more time with the majority of the world that is not Microsoft's customer base too. :)</p>

    <p>…except Microsoft is supposedly working hard on a game streaming service. I should think that makes a future Xbox itself a bit of a waste.</p>
