Impending Windows 7 EOL Boosts Windows 10

Given impending end of life for Windows 7 in 2020 and a still-large installed base of Windows 7 devices, that spells opportunity. Recent assessments of PC sales, slightly up for the first time since 2012, confirm this supposition.

Say Yes to Win10 Telemetry

Though you may find Windows 10 telemetry potentially intrusive or a little scary, MS takes steps to anonymize and protect the data it collects. We all benefit in the aggregate from the insights that telemetry can deliver. That’s why I urge all Win10 users to leave it turned on.

1803 Is Not Half Bad Despite Woes and Lamentation

Despite surveys and reports that Windows 10 Version 1803 is terrible or awful, I say that 1803 is not half bad. MS goes so far as to claim its users report “higher satisfaction numbers, fewer known issues and lower support call volumes.”

Win10.guru and GDPR

With the GDPR ready to take effect on May 25, 2018, Win10.Guru is ready with a reworked subscription system and full disclosure of information retained about its visitors and subcribers.

Windows Needs STAR Too!

Based on a design for voting machines where STAR stands for Secure, Transparent, Auditable and Reliable, I say that Windows needs STAR, too! This is a design philosophy everyone can get behind.

Why 1803 Release Date Keeps Receding

At one point, I was reasonably convinced that the Spring Creators Update aka Windows 10 Version 1803 might even go public before the end of March. Over the last couple of weeks, it’s become apparent that not only was that presumption incorrect, we still don’t know for sure when 1803 will hit the streets. Lots

1.1.1.1 – Cloudflare’s new DNS Resolver

Cloudfare for sure selected an unorthodox launch day for its new DNS resolver service 1.1.1.1. That’s because it not only made its debut on Easter Sunday but this year, that also happened to be April Fools Day (and, my birthday!). According to Matthew Prince on Clouflare’s blog, there was a “valid” reason for all this:

Waking up quite early I decided to go to RAI Amsterdam, the venue for the Tech Summit. I got there a few minutes before 8 AM. This turned out to be excellent timing, because I was there exactly when the doors opened. I registered myself, enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and took a stroll around “The
