Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss a major Windows 10X leak and what it means, Microsoft’s self-driving car investment, a new Intel CEO, Julia White, Xbox, and much more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: The next book
No, Mary Jo won’t be working on it FOR SOME REASON but I’ve got a plan for moving forward.
App pick of the week: Web browsers
‘Tis the season for new web browsers
Enterprise pick of the week: Ignite Part 2 is coming
Mark your calendars, IT Pros. March 2-4 is Ignite Part 2 (And next Tuesday is Microsoft Q2 FY21 earnings!)
Codename pick of the week: VAIL
Vail is shorthand for Virtualized Application Interface Layer. It’s also the name many of us use for the container technology – including the Win32 container tech — that Microsoft has been working on for Windows Core OS. The VAIL container tech is what’s going to be missing from the first iteration of 10X.
(Vail was a Media Center codename I think. –Paul)
Beer pick of the week: Tree House Brewing New Decade Do-Over
A DIPA with the perfect name for inauguration day! Tree House Brewing in Mass. Makes a ton of amazing and hard-to-get beers. They excel at IPAs. And this one is being checked in today by the lucky folks with access. Lots of stone fruit, orange/melon/mango flavors. Bitter, yet sweet.
