Hello to all our subscribers and readers. It’s time to tell you what has happened, is happening, and will happen at Win10.guru. Let’s go right to the topics that matter:
Windows Enterprise Desktop
I am extremely proud and honoured to work with a globally known Windows expert, author and blogger Ed Tittel, my dear Win10.guru partner. When I founded Win10.guru, the site remained offline quite a long time, because I realised I could not do it alone. Nor could I do by myself what I had on my mind. After some time and good single malt to encourage me, I asked Ed if he would be interested to work on Guru with me. To my surprise, after hearing what I had on my mind, he accepted, and Win10.guru went live online just before Christmas 2017.
I mean, who wouldn’t be proud of saying Ed is my co-worker?
For years, Ed had written his Windows Enterprise Desktop (WED) blog for TechTarget’s Search Enterprise Desktop. For reasons unknown to either of us, Search Enterprise Desktop cancelled the blog (and its entire IT Knowledge Exchange infrastructure). For a short time, Ed posted his WED posts over at his personal site, edtittel.com
He then realized, that the WED posts might find a better home on Win10.guru. Starting last week, you can find Ed’s Windows Enterprise Desktop blog posts here, just click the WED link in our main menu bar shown on each page, or go to https.//wed.win10.guru
Some users are reporting that Win10.guru shows various error messages. Here’s one, seen and reported by numerous readers:
My phone records show that I have been on phone with GoDaddy, our hosting company, for more than 14 hours in the last four days, to resolve this. Unfortunately, the only answer I’ve got at the moment is this:.
To help us to resolve this curious issue, please run the following command in Command Prompt, and email a screenshot of the output to me: kari (at) win10 dot guru:
One of the principles Ed agreed when joining me on Win10.guru was that the site would always remain free. We will never go behind a paywall, nor will we ever offer more or better content for those who pay something extra. I promise you: Win10.guru will always be free free, all content available to all visitors.
Having said that, I have a question to ask. Let’s say we could give you a full Office 365 Enterprise E3 subscription, would you be interested in becoming a “Platinum Member”? O365 Enterprise E3 costs at the moment £211 / $240 / €236 a year. We could offer that to you for $100 a year. The only benefit, compared to when bought from Microsoft, would be a direct access to Ed and me in Microsoft Teams, in addition to usual O365 benefits (unlimited OneDrive for Business, Office desktop apps on five devices, and so on).
Let me know if you are interested, my email is kari (at) win10 dot guru.
That’s it this time!
