This Week's Stories

  • Modern OS: It's the future of Windows, vaguely. In a boring blog post about new PCs, Microsoft suddenly---if vaguely---starts discussing something called Modern OS. And it is not Windows 10. Or is it?
  • Related: PCs continue evolving despite the down market, and I like what they've become. Plus, Lenovo, the world's biggest PC maker, is somehow experiencing big PC sales growth.
  • Dell tips something called Windows 10 Home Ultra. This is almost certainly the new name for Windows 10 Home Advanced, which Thurrott.com revealed a year ago. But Microsoft says "Ultra" does not exist.
  • Windows 10 version 1903 ekes out into the world, slowly.
  • Much ado about nothing with new Microsoft Edge, again
  • Microsoft celebrates 10 years of Bing. Which was not its first search engine. Or 2nd or 3rd either. When did Bing finally turn a profit? 2015
  • Microsoft is making a Pro IntelliMouse for some reason.
  • There's a purple Xbox One S on the way!
  • New messaging experience comes to Xbox app
  • Related: PS Now is the biggest game streaming service today

Tips and picks

  • Tip of the week: Configure Paste Options in OneNote for Windows 10

NEXT WEEK: We will be in Amsterdam! But never fear: The Windows Weekly show will go on. Usual time, except we'll be at ExpertsLive NL.
