Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss the blowback in the wake of the Windows 11 announcement, Cloud PC, JEDI, Xbox, and much more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Back to school sale
Microsoft Store is hosting another back-to-school sale right now. Also, remember that
parents and students save up to 10 percent year-round on select products at Microsoft Store.
Also: I finished the Windows 10 Field Guide this past week. Download now to get the final major content update.
App pick of the week: Opera for Android
Opera for Android is now optimized for Chromebooks, pointing the way to other mobile browsers and apps being optimized for desktop platforms.
Enterprise pick of the week: SQL Server on Windows Containers is no more
SQL Server on Linux Containers: Yes. SQL Server on Windows Containers: No. This may seem counterintuitive, but it actually makes sense.
Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: The 8th edition of Office 365 for IT Pros (with a discount for WW listeners)
The bible for M365/O365 for IT pros is now in its 8th edition. And the lead editor Tony Redmond has provided a handy-dandy discount code for listeners to get $10 off.
Beer pick of the week: Deschutes Fresh Squeezed
Codename for Cloud PC is Deschutes. Deschutes Brewing in Oregon makes some really great beers. Black Butte Porter is one of THE best out there. And Deschutes Fresh Squeezed is one of my favorite IPAs when on the west coast. Tastes like fresh squeezed OJ, with hops. 6.4%. soooo tasty.
