App pick of the week: Forza Street

This new mobile racer is available now on Windows 10, and is coming soon to Android and iOS.

Enterprise pick of the week: Pengwin: A Linux specifically for WSL

Pengwin, formerly WLinux, is all Whitewater’s. It’s based on Debian Linux and work by Microsoft Research

Codename pick of the week: Bosque

Microsoft Research is working on a new programming language that’s currently known as “Bosque.” The WalkingCat found a link describing it this week

Beer pick of the week: Citizen Cider bRose

bRosé: Cider rosé made by three bros right in the great state of Vermont. bRosé is made by co-fermenting blueberries and fresh local cider. I haven’t tried this rose cider specifically, but they’re good, especially for spring. I will say, Citizen Ciders are all consistently quite good.
