Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15014 for PC and Mobile arrives on the Fast ring, and delivers yet more new features

Microsoft is aiming for April for the Windows 10 Creators Update, so is rushing out new builds for Insiders to try. Last week we got not one but two new releases on the Fast ring — Build 15002, which introduced a wealth of changes and new features, and Build 15007, which also introduced a fair amount of new functionality. The latest release, Build 15014 fixes a ton of issues from the previous two builds, but also introduces some exciting new features.

A beginner’s guide to comparing files using visual diff/merge tool Meld on Linux

Now that we’ve covered some command line-based diff/merge tools in Linux, it’d be logical to explain some visual diff/merge tools available for the OS as well. Reason being, not everybody is used-to the command line, and/or command-line based comparison tools could be more difficult to learn and understand for some.

Curl hearts Mozilla

Today Mozilla revealed the new logo and “refreshed identity”. The new Mozilla logo uses the colon-slash-slash sequence already featured in curl’s logo as I’ve discussed previously here from back before the final decision (or layout) was complete.
The sentiment remains though. We don’t feel that we can in any way claim exclusivity to this symbol of internet protocols – on the contrary we believe this character sequence tells something and we’re nothing but happy that this belief is shared by such a great organization such as Mozilla.
Will the “://” in either logo make some users think of the other logo? Not totally unlikely, but I don’t consider that bad. curl and Mozilla share a lot of values and practices; open source, pro users, primarily client-side. I am leading the curl project and I am employed by Mozilla. Also, when talking and comparing brands and their recognition and importance in a global

Make Firefox support moz://a

I’d imagine with the new logo, a lot of people will try typing moz://a in the URL bar. It currently does a search for moz://a.

Easter egg waiting to happen? Or maybe another opportunity?

Easiest way would be for that to just redirect to about:mozilla – but it can be done more creatively for sure 😉

Perhaps alias about: to moz:// is even better?
moz://mozilla
moz://credit

I don’t think the scope creep is worthwhile, FWIW. Our new branding is stylized as ‘moz://a’, so making that do *something* feels right, but unless we start using variations of the branding to

Switches coming out this year will drive open networking forward

Two moves by open networking vendors this week are likely to chip a little bit more off the monolith of proprietary, appliance-like equipment that still moves most packets around enterprise data centers.
On Thursday, network OS supplier Cumulus Networks introduced turnkey switches based on standard hardware from Edgecore Networks running Cumulus software. They’re designed to allow customers who are new to open networking to get started quickly and easily.
Earlier in the week, Barefoot Networks announced that Edgecore and another Taiwan-based manufacturer called WNC would start shipping switches that use the company’s fully programmable chips.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Microsoft is Bringing Cortana To Android Lock Screen

Microsoft is testing out a new way to access Cortana, its digital assistant, from the Android lock screen, with just a swipe. It’s a new feature that’s clearly designed to replace Google’s own quick access, and to convince Android users to switch to Cortana. According to MSPowerUser, Cortana on the lock screen doesn’t replace existing lock screens, so you can still use a custom one or the default experience that ships with your Android device. Cortana is activated simply by swiping left or right on the floating logo. Microsoft is currently testing this new feature, and any Android users can opt-in to trial the new beta features over at the Google Play Store.
