Lots of big new Teams features coming this year. Cortana also will be coming to a conference room near you soon, as MS foreshadowed last year. Meltdown patch available from Microsoft for Intel x86-based PCs running Win 7, 8.1. In case there were any doubts, the Spring Creators Update will start rolling out in April. New Redstone 4 test build (17120) is out with a lot of Mixed Reality known issues. MS is selling Galaxy S9 phones, but don't call them "Microsoft Edition."

Google is getting into cloud-based game hosting/streaming too ... What does this mean for Microsoft's future?
