Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss three big “Gates” from this past week, Windows 10 exorcising its 3D nonsense, the end of Legacy Edge (Ledge), and much more!
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Be portable in all things
Now, your Internet and cell service access can be as temporary as any other online service.
App pick of the week: Visual Studio Code
Microsoft’s developer editor is now available natively on M1 Macs. (Semi-unrelated, so is Photoshop.)
Enterprise pick of the week: New deployment service for firmware, drivers
This was an under-the radar announcement at Ignite. This new Windows Update business/enterprise service is coming to Intune (and Microsoft Graph?) in the second half of the year. A private preview is this month.
Codename pick of the week: Spartan
Goodbye, Spartan, a k a Legacy Edge/Dedge. (Anaheim is the not-as-colorful codename for the new Edge)
Beer pick of the week: Fifth Hammer Prickly Whiskers
March is women’s history month and March 8 was international women’s day. A local brewery here in NYC that is co-owned by a woman (Mary Izett), Fifth Hammer, makes some excellent beers of all styles. Prickly Whiskers is their sour made with the fruit of the Opuntia, a cousin of the prickly pear.Neon red in color and flavors of watermelon and raspberry, it’s a harbinger of spring!
