What enterprise needs to know about Windows 11

So much for that promise.You know, the one Microsoft made six years ago when it told customers that Windows 10 was “the last version of Windows” they’d see.Instead, Windows 10 will end — also as promised by Microsoft, hence our confusion over the contradictory claims — in late 2025, its 10-year lifecycle the same as its OS antecedents, replaced by the next-in-line numeral and numeric label. Hail Windows 11.[ Related: Microsoft cheat sheets: Dive into Windows and Office apps ]

Windows 11 Drops Skype As a Default App

Microsoft is shoving Skype out of sight in favor of Microsoft Teams, which gets a highlight spot in the new center-aligned taskbar and deep integration into Windows. The Verge reports: Today’s Windows 11 news is all about where Microsoft sees computing going over the next few years, but it’s just as much the story of how Skype has flourished and ebbed since its $8.5 billion acquisition a decade ago. Five years ago, Skype was the big name in internet calling and video, and Microsoft made it an “inbox app” for Windows 10 that was included at installation and launched at startup by default. Now, after a pandemic year that has had more people using their PCs for voice and video than ever before, Skype was nowhere to be seen in the Windows 11 presentation or materials.

The future vision that Microsoft had for Skype everywhere has turned into a reality

Microsoft is (finally) killing off Internet Explorer entirely

If you’re one of the 10 people on the planet who absolutely loves Microsoft’s venerable Internet Explorer browser, you’d better spend quality time with it while you can—Microsoft is retiring the browser on June 15, 2022.
The much-hated browser has clung tenaciously to the Windows operating system thanks largely to a never-ending supply of businesses that tailored custom websites and web interfaces using IE-only functionality, because those businesses were unwilling to rewrite them for a more modern web environment. But Microsoft believes that the new Chromium-based Edge has finally licked the problem of IE compatibility once and for all:
Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern:

Microsoft Says Windows 10X Isn’t Happening

Microsoft today acknowledged that the company isn’t going to release its Windows 10X operating system variant, as reported more than a week ago. Mary Jo Foley, writing at ZDNet: Don’t be surprised if you missed the acknowledgement, as Microsoft buried it in its blog post about the rollout of the Windows 10 21H1 feature update — which it published at the start of the Google I/O keynote. Toward the end of the post, under the “Our customer first focus” subheading, officials said Windows 10X wouldn’t be coming to market in 2021, after all. Instead, Microsoft will be integrating some of the 10X “foundational” technologies into other parts of Windows and other products. Windows 10X was supposed to be Microsoft’s answer to Chrome OS — a simpler Windows 10 variant that was slated to debut first on PCs for education and the first line-worker market.

Two More Windows 10 Updates Will Remove Adobe Flash For Good

Microsoft is preparing to issue two more Windows 10 updates in June and July that will eliminate unsupported Adobe Flash Player from Windows PCs for good.

Graphical Linux apps are coming to Windows Subsystem for Linux

Assuming you’ve already got your system running Insider, Dev channel, and build 21364, all you need to do is wsl –install (or wsl –update, if you’ve already installed it). [credit:
Jim Salter ]

This week, Microsoft launched support for graphical and audio Linux apps under the Windows Subsystem for Linux—although the new feature is only available in the Dev channel of Insider builds, for now. The new feature is nicknamed WSLg, and it includes both X and PulseAudio servers. We gave WSLg some limited testing today, and it performed rather well.
After running apt install firefox in the WSL2/Ubuntu terminal, we ran an Ubuntu-flavored web browser and played several videos on YouTube. We don’t necessarily recommend you base your next HTPC on WSLg—but the videos were watchable, with decent frame rate and non-skipping audio. (We tested WSLg with a Ryzen 5 Pro 2500U-powered Minisforum UM250 Mini-PC.)

An introduction to Windows 10’s new PowerToys

Back in the 1990s, Windows users had access to a number of small, free software tools from Microsoft handy for everyday tasks, such as accessing desktop items from a menu on the taskbar or quickly changing the screen resolution. Collectively, these programs were called “PowerToys” (see the eponymous Wikipedia article for more history and a list of items).Today, Microsoft offers a set of tools under the control of a single UWP app by the same name. Unlike the ‘90s tools, which had to be downloaded and installed individually, the newest Windows 10 PowerToys app gives users access to all available PowerToys in one go.To read this article in full, please click here
