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.

Will Internet Survive EU Copyright Directive Articles 11 & 13?

The European Union Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) voted yesterday (June 20) in favour of updates to its Copyright Directive. This directive still needs to be presented to the European Parliament, but already it has generated a quite controversial response. Although this new directive mostly just updates the technical language it uses, it contains two articles that

Why Support Win10 2-Year Support Cycle

Saw a fascinating story in ComputerWorld a couple of days ago. Entitled “Gartner: Enterprises should demand 2 full years of Windows 10 support,” it explains why MS needs to extend the current 18-month lifespan for Feature Updates to 24 months instead. Let me lay out the logic involved. We’re now on a twice-a-year feature upgrade

GDPR is coming – Are you ready?

The “Regulation on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC” — in short, the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR — comes to the end of its two-year transition period and will be fully enforced in four weeks, on

Microsoft Tech Summit – Day Before

Long and boring journey, thanks to Deutsche Bahn, German Railroads. I have difficulties to understand how they can’t get mobile connectivity to work on their trains.

Technical writing and sources

Years ago, when I was working on a relatively large Help Desk for corporate customers as a Subject Matter Expert, one of my tasks was to write simple “Quick Start” documentation for users. I can still remember how ashamed I felt at one point, when working under an impossible deadline. That’s when my boss found
