Leo, Mary Jo, and I discuss the removal of Sets from Windows 10 Redstone 5, Hadoop and data lakes, a Surface USB-C adapter, and much more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Thinking about smart home tech? Think again
Most smart home projects are a waste of time and money. Think twice before paying for products that will only complicate your life.
App pick of the week: Microsoft News
Microsoft News is a (mostly) good anecdote to the crap news aggregators out there now. It’s on mobile and Windows 10 now (Fast ring).
Enterprise pick of the week: A new ‘big brains’ podcast from Microsoft worth checking out
“Behind the Tech” is a new podcast series with Microsoft’s CTO Kevin Scott as the anchor. He’s interviewing some of the really big names at Microsoft. First up: Anders Hejlsberg.
Enterprise pick 2: A new container base image is coming to Win Server
Windows Server users already have Nano Server and Windows Server Core images available to them. With Win Server 2019, a third image is coming: Windows. It’s available to Win 10 Insider testers as of today.
And speaking of Server, this week’s Windows Server Summit sessions are all online and available for your viewing for free.
Beer pick of the week: Grimm Icing on the Cake
A big stout that tastes more like frosting than beer. Chocolate cocoa and vanilla. But sometimes, that’s what you want for dessert. And for those in NYC: Grimm is FINALLY opening their NYC brewery this weekend in Brooklyn! Wooohooo!
