    Enjoyed the show, as usual. So, the issue of what to call Chromium-based Edge in articles and discussions has come up several times on Thurrott.com and now on WW. Over at windowscentral.com, they just use the browser's code name, "Anaheim." This seems like the simplest option for now. At the start of an article, just indicate the code name and then use it from there on out. Anything's better than using dumb mash-ups like "Chredge" or Mehedi's unfortunate favorite, "Edgium." In a year, this won't matter, as the current form of Edge won't exist.

    I think this was touched on in the WW episode but I recently purchased a few Surface 3 4G models I still found new because they work so fell for us here at work and were cheaper than the Surface Go. They still had Windows 8. I ran the Windows 10 Media Creator and they upgraded to 10 for free. Tested the same on a Windows 7 PC and it worked as well.
