Leo, Mary Jo, and I discuss 1.5 billion Windows PCs in use, Windows 10 version 1809, GitHub, Microsoft earnings, and more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Games with Gold is awesome this month
And it’s already available: You can get Battlefield 1 and Assassin’s Creed (!) a day early too!
App pick of the week: Skype for Web (Preview)
Skype for Web (Preview) is Skype without the app. Or something. thanks to Rick (
@rpodric) on Twitter.
Enterprise pick of the week: Olympia v2
Codename pick of the week: Vanadium and Vibranium
Microsoft is shifting its codename scheme yet again and now matching Azure in its use of chemical elements as codenames. Vanadium is up after 19H1. Then Vibranium (not Chromium), for rather obvious reasons.
Beer pick of the week: Dogfish Head Punkin Ale
I don’t drink pumpkin beers often, but when I do, I try to find ones that don’t taste like a slice of pumpkin pie. Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale is a decent pumpkin beer. You get the spices, but not the sweetness (despite inclusion of brown sugar).
