Zorin OS 12.4 Linux distribution is here — switch from Microsoft Windows 10 now!

I’m not a Microsoft “hater” at all. With that said, I am not a fan of the state of Windows 10. The privacy issues alone are a reason to avoid the operating system, but that is hardly the only concern. For instance, Microsoft has been pre-loading tiles for games like Candy Crush and other apps — a move that shows major disrespect towards its customers. Not to mention, the “Insiders” program is just a way for the company to get free beta testing — Microsoft is all too happy to treat Windows 10 users as guinea pigs. It is all… [Continue Reading]

Wow! Microsoft releases action-packed Windows 10 Redstone 5 build with dark theme for File Explorer, acrylic in Sets, Cloud Clipboard, and more

With Redstone 4 builds of Windows 10, the new features and changes came to users quite gradually. That’s certainly not the case with Redstone 5 releases. The latest build rolling out to Insiders on the Fast ring and Skip Ahead today is the perfect case in point. Build 17666 (it’s a beast of a build, so the number is apt) is chock full of exciting new features that you really won’t want to wait to get your hands on, including Cloud Clipboard, a dark theme for File Explorer, major improvements to Sets, the ability to search Bing in Notepad and… [Continue Reading]

The latest feature update for Windows 10 is about to start rolling out, although it may be months before it comes to your device.

How to Prepare for Monday’s ‘Windows 10 April 2018 Update’

That’s right. The “Spring Creators” update is no more; Microsoft is now calling its upcoming mega-update to Windows the “Windows 10 April 2018 Update,” and the company is barely locking this name in by releasing the update on Monday, April 30—the last day of the month.Read more…

Microsoft officially announces the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, available on April 30

For a long time, it was believed that the next big feature update for Windows 10 would be called the Spring Creators Update, following in the footsteps of the Fall Creators Update, and the Creators Update. Then it was discovered that Microsoft was intending to call it the April Update, even though it looked increasingly like the new release wouldn’t arrive this month. Finally though, we have an official name, and a release date.

Microsoft Windows 10 gains Linux/WSL Console copy and paste functionality

For better or worse, the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) initiative seems to be moving full steam ahead. There are some very respectable distributions available in the Microsoft Store, such as Debian, Ubuntu, and Kali to name a few. Not to mention, Microsoft is trying to encourage even more maintainers to submit their distros with a new tool. Apparently, some Windows 10 users have been clamoring for the ability to copy and paste both from and to WSL consoles — a reasonable request. Well, as of Insider Build 17643, this is finally possible. “As of Windows 10 Insider build #17643, you… [Continue Reading]

Kali Linux for Windows 10 now available in Microsoft Store

It still seems unreal, but yes, you can install Linux distributions from the Microsoft Store on Windows 10. This remains shocking for many people (including me), as Microsoft was a longtime enemy of both open source and Linux. Of course, that is no longer true, as the Windows-maker embraces both nowadays. Today, yet another Linux distribution comes to the Microsoft Store for Windows 10, joining such favorites as SUSE and Ubuntu. While not as popular as those two, Kali Linux is still an important distro, as it focuses on security and penetration testing. “As with other Linux distros, you can now… [Continue Reading]
