Tip of the week: It’s the Chris Cap giveaway!
App pick of the week: Adobe Lightroom (Microsoft Store version)
Adobe has quietly made Lightroom available in the Microsoft Store. If you need this app and use Windows, you need this version, even though it’s not as great a deal as is Photoshop Elements.
Enterprise pick of the week: Windows Server 2004
Microsoft has shared very little publicly about what’s new in Windows Server 20H1. But the eagle-eyed folks at RCP found a list of a few of the features. Reduced container size is the most notable improvement.
Codename pick of the week: Alta
Microsoft’s coming M365 Consumer subscription (M365 Life) is codenamed “Alta.” Is it codenamed for the Alta, Utah ski resort (inquiring minds want to know).
Beer pick of the week: Prairie Christmas Bomb
There are a lot of excellent Christmas beers/winter warmers. But one of my favorite year in and out is Prairie’s Chrismas Bomb. They take their base imperial stout (Prairie Bomb) and Christmas it up: At 13%, it might lead to long winter naps!
