- Discontent is growing in the community. Two key issues:
- Why don't Surface PCs get new Windows versions on Day One?
- Why were their sudden over a dozen known issues that had never come up during testing?
- Microsoft essentially stole WinGet after courting the developer of AppGet and offering a job that never materialized.
- Microsoft's response is inadequate.
- Beigi says he's talking to MS and may have more to share soon (whatever that means)
- Microsoft reveals deprecated, removed features in Windows 10 version 2004
- HP reveals a new Windows Mixed Reality headset. Why?
- New Edge starts rolling out to Windows 10 users via Windows Update (starting w. 1803/1809)
- Google is sued for tracking users in Incognito move. Seriously, people use Brave. Or Edge.
- Microsoft enables Windows Spellcheck API for all Chromium browsers
- Samsung Access - a new subscription service that gets you an S20, premium support, and … Microsoft 365 Personal. Interesting.
- Microsoft says Xbox Series X will be the most compatible console ever.
- Sony starts making the PS5

- Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft bot tools you can use. Microsoft is adding more bot tools to its stable for developers and non-developers, including a tool for building Alexa stills using the MS Bot Framework
