Google Enterprise is all about bringing business-level management to Chromebooks. So maybe Microsoft wasn't so crazy thinking Windows 10 S might appeal to business users. New Windows 10 Fall Creators Insider build just released today - no new features. Related: Windows 10 S finally heads to Insiders. New Windows Server 2016 1709 build – the 3rd Insider preview for Server – also is out. No new features. Xbox One X pre-orders and other Gamescom news. New console bundles, including one for Minecraft fans and more. RIP GigJam: We hardly knew you, Microsoft's oddly named collaboration/productivity tool. Microsoft and Red Hat extend their 2-year-old partnership with container, SQL Server support. Microsoft shares more about Brainwave, its AI platform running on FPGAs.
