Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss Microsoft’s Inner Source initiative, Windows 10 19H1 and 20H1, Visual Studio 2019, and more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Get 2 months of Xbox Game Pass for $1
Buy one month of Xbox Game Pass for $2 and get another month for free. Then use that time to play Crackdown 3 instead of buying it.
App pick of the week: Greenshot
Thanks to Laurie Baranowski for the suggestion: Greenshot is a great (and free) screenshot tool with support for mouse cursor capture.
Plus: Zoho Suite is a free set of great web apps that can replace Office or Google Docs
Enterprise pick of the week: SAC-T gets sacked
The servicing branches for Windows 10 for business users continue to morph. SAC-T (Targeted) is going away with 1903. Bryan Dam has an excellent write-up of what’s happening.
Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: Windows 7, Server 2008 users – make sure you’re patched for SH-2
Beer pick of the week: Toppling Goliath Pseudo Sue
Pseudo Sue, an American Pale Ale, brewed in Iowa, is named for the largest T-Rex fossil ever discovered. It’s nicely bitter, hoppy yet smooth and very drinkable at 6.2 percent. Toppling Goliath is finally starting to distribute here in NYC! (And other new markets, too, I believe)
Don’t forget to tune in to watch Microsoft’s Mobile World Congress press conference on Sunday Feb. 24. Starts at 9 am PT/12 noon ET. Betting we’ll see HoloLens Next!
