Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss the evolving world of Windows 11 apps, Microsoft’s foldable apps on mobile, Xbox, and much more.
Note: My microphone quality is terrible, sorry, because I’m traveling this week.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Run Windows 11 on your Mac
Parallels Desktop is the best way to run Windows on your Mac thanks to Coherence mode. And now you can run Windows 11! Plus, why this solution’s reliance on Windows on ARM may not be/is not an issue.
App pick of the week: Start11
Plus: Firefox 91 adds SSO support for Microsoft accounts (consumer and commercial).
Enterprise pick of the week: Windows Server Summit
The moment Windows Server fans have been waiting for is finally almost here. Microsoft’s holding a virtual Windows Server Summit on Sept. 16 where it will provide what it says is the first in-depth look at Windows Server 2022.
Enterprise pick 2 of the week: Peer5
Microsoft just acquired Peer5 this week to improve its video streaming in Teams. In case you forgot, Microsoft is redoing its Stream video service so that it uses SharePoint and OneDrive for Business for storing video. This process is basically complete now and Microsoft is in the final stages of implementation of the new storage backend for Stream.
Beer pick of the week: Untitled Arts Non-Alcoholic Italian Pilsner
So, I don’t drink many NA beers, but I like to try them periodically to have something to recommend for folks who need/want NA beverages. This beer, NA Italian Pilsner, is something to counteract all the crazy heavy weird beers I’ve been drinking lately. Untitled Arts, based in Waunakee, WI, makes a bunch of NA beers and this one is getting some very good reviews.
