Leaked Documents Reveal Several Windows 10 Details
Elaborate Windows 10 details are still missing, even after the official announcement, even as the new OS looks set to the be the talking point of the computing industry for the next several months. Some may even opine that most of the details that matter are under wraps — Microsoft is playing cards close to heart, as it has done for the past few years, it seems, and did has not expand upon several facets of its upcoming operating system at the event yesterday. Luckily, thanks to some newly leaked documents, intended for Microsoft partners, we have a lot of handy pointers on the way things are going, and when can we expect to see the final bits of Windows 10 released to public. First up, Microsoft is planning six months of public testing. Throw in the October 1 date, today, when the Windows 10 Technical Preview goes live, and we are looking at this phase to last till the end of March, next year. Summer it is then, for release. Additionally, the Windows 10 system requires are similar to those on Windows 8, and all devices sold during the upcoming Holiday shopping season will be capable of running Windows 10 just fine. So there’s that. Redmond also recommends only experienced users to download and install the Technical Preview, obviously as it is unfinished, even if relatively stable, code...We have multiple questions like, When will the next version of Windows be made generally available?, Will Windows 10 be available for free to existing customers?, What are the system requirements for the Windows 10 Technical Preview? We have the answers to these and much more plusa link for more posted on our forum.
FCC publishes 400-page net neutrality rules PDF Print E-mail

net neutrality rules

Many considered last month’s landmark decision on net neutrality as a win for the Internet. The proposal promised to do away with things like paid prioritization and classify broadband as a public utility through selective enforcement of Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. But without actually seeing the proposal, proponents really had no idea exactly what they were championing and were more or less trusting the FCC to do the “right thing.” On Thursday, the FCC published the full text of its Open Internet Order which gives ordinary citizens their first look at the new rules. If you were hoping for a quick read, guess again – we’re talking about a 400-page document here. Those with a strong stance on net neutrality are encouraged to give it a read. Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T’s business and mobility arm, said until everybody reads the fine print and understands it, they won’t be able to comment in detail. The executive said he plans to read it cover to cover. The order aims to strike down some of the beliefs that opponents of net neutrality have. It states that it is Title II tailored for the 21st century and unlike the application of Title II to incumbent wireline companies in the 20th century, a swath of utility-style provisions (including tariffing) will not be applied. Despite the ruling and publishing of new rules, the matter is far from over as broadband providers like AT&T and Comcast are expected to sue the FCC to try and block the order. Since you are seeing this here, I'm sure you have surmised we have the entire 400 page report posted at windows8newsinfo forum for your intensive reading pleasure.

Windows 10 Build 10036

At least, according to WZor, the prominent leaker of Microsoft software. Intelligence from Russia suggests that Windows 10 build 10036 is likely to be released to Windows Insiders soon. Yes, the same version that saw a bucketload of screenshots leak yesterday. And yes, the same version that apparently comes without a few widely expected features — features like Start Menu transparency and the Spartan web browser. Unless someone is doing a really great job hiding them, it seems we may not get them in the next version that gets published. Details to when this version will be release are not available, however. Microsoft, it is said, is fixing a few bugs and giving this version final touches. Theoretically it could launch later today or sometimes this week, but this much is clear that we are very close to a new preview version of Windows 10. From the look of things, meaning the images that leaked, this version does not bring all that much new in terms of features and user interface. So let’s just hope Redmond ships the best possible version to users when it decides to do so. It has been a long time coming, and leaks have revealed much...For continuous updates on this possible release whether official or intentionally leaked visit windows8newsinfo forum on a regular basis.

Microsoft Releases Four Security Patches For Windows 10
It may not seem like it, but today is Update Tuesday, the designated day of each month when Microsoft rolls out fixes and updates for its software and operating systems. On the desktop, that is to say, not smartphones. And if you’re one of the millions that are running Windows 10, the company has an engagement of four new security patches for the preview version of the upcoming OS. Microsoft recommends these to be deployed and installed as soon as possible. Security patches, remember. This ensures that your installation remains safe from threats. Simply fire up the Windows Update tool on your Windows 10 computer and the four updates will be there waiting for you to be downloaded. The patches fix issues with Internet Explorer, Flash Player and the Malicious Software Removal Tool. And although the company is yet to completely detail these, at least at the time of this writing, you can hit up these links to get an idea what they fix. These of course, apply to Windows 10 build 9926, which is the most current version available to Windows Insiders. Also known as the January Technical Preview. These patches do mean that it may be a while until the next preview version is released to public. There are no reported issues with these patches, yet, so feel free to deploy them on your Windows 10 installation as soon as you can...For a complete run down on these patched visit windows8newsinfo forum.

Delay In Launch Of New Windows 10 Builds
Well, it’s technically not a delay when there is no confirmation of releases, but Microsoft did actually promised faster release of Windows 10 builds this year. Redmond even has something like the Fast and Slow rings for Windows Insiders. But despite this, even with talk of a new preview build of the operating system every month (some went on to suggest multiple preview builds every 30 days), we are here stuck with the January Technical Preview, build 9926. And although the company is preparing new versions, the head of the Windows Insider program, Gabriel Aul, meanwhile has spent his most of his days recently answering questions from eager fans. Questions like when is the next build coming? Anyway, the company has decided to answer this burning question in a blog post detailing the frequency of releases, explaining in the process why they don’t actually announce firm release dates. The idea is simple really — doing so would mean holding onto a stable build that might be weeks old and lacking in features. Plus there is always the chance that some last minute bugs might end up raining on the party, forcing Microsoft to miss the deadline. For this reason, the software titan constantly keeps building and testing these preview builds, and when they hit upon one that has the right balance of stability and features, they will let it out. Eh, sounds painfully logical! Aul has admitted that Microsoft has been a little too conservative when it comes to pushing builds out, and there may be a possibility of something such as a “Ludicrous speed” ring — for users that just can’t wait. Or rather, fans that just can’t wait. The goal still remains to push multiple releases every month, and with the development coming along at breakneck speeds, future builds are sure to be stable and complete enough to be pushed along at a much faster pace...Read the rest on our forum.

Fingerprint Scanning Coming To Windows 10 For Phones

Just like Intel is on the desktop side, Qualcomm is now the most vital hardware company in the mobile world. The upcoming Windows 10 for Phones handsets are all set to be powered by Snapdragon processors. Similar to the myriad of Windows Phone smartphones before them. But it appears that Microsoft’s upcoming handsets could receive fingerprint scanning support in Windows 10, making passwords a thing of the past. That is because Qualcomm has added in support for this security technology in its processors. The hardware giant announced at MWC 2015 in Barcelona that its new and existing processors will allow the use of fingerprint scanners. Everything from the premium Snapdragon 810 to the budget Snapdragon 425, as well as the existing Snapdragon 400, 600 and 800 series of processing units. According to the company, the new Snapdragon Sense ID 3D Fingerprint option will allow devices made of glass, aluminum, sapphire, stainless steel and plastic to implement this enhanced security feature. Which not only allows users to unlock their phones but also access a number of services like payment solutions, using fingerprint protection...Stay abreast on all Windows 10 Phone on our forum.

Microsoft to double price of XP's post-retirement support PDF Print E-mail

Microsoft to double price of XP's post-retirement support
Microsoft will double the per-PC price of support for enterprises still stuck with Windows XP systems when the anniversary of the aged OS's retirement rolls around in April, a licensing expert said today. The per-PC price for what Microsoft calls "custom support agreements (CSAs) will jump to $400, the expert said after requesting anonymity. CSAs provide critical security updates for an operating system that's been officially retired, as Windows XP was on April 8, 2014. CSAs are negotiated on a company-by-company basis and also require that an organization has adopted a top-tier support plan, dubbed Premier Support, offered by Microsoft. The CSA failsafe lets companies pay for security patches beyond the normal support lifespan while they finish their migrations to newer editions of Windows. Most enterprises have shifted -- and are continuing to do so -- to Windows 7 rather than adopt Windows 8.1 Last year, just days before Microsoft retired Windows XP, the company slashed the price of CSAs to $200-per-device with a cap of $250,000. Because a CSA is an annual-only program -- and Microsoft limits each organization to just three years of post-retirement support -- agreements must be renewed each year. The first renewals come due in less than two months. Ideally, companies that signed up for a CSA last year will have retired large numbers of Windows XP machines in the interim...Get fully informed at windows8newsinfo forum.

Windows 10 Phone
Ever so quietly, Microsoft has made available Windows 10 for Phones to the slow channel, and the preview version can now be downloaded on all compatible devices. This follows the official release of this first ever build of the mobile operating system on the Windows Insider program on February 12 — but back then, only those devices that were enrolled on the fast ring received the bits. Now, though, devices that are registered for the slow ring have access to the preview. Gabriel Aul confirmed this on Twitter, explaining that while there is no major difference between both builds, the one being shipped to user on the slow channel probably includes a number of bug fixes that makes it more stable. Users have been continually reporting any issue they encounter with this first version. Microsoft is yet to detail any of the fixes that are part of this slow ring release, but at least it should run a bit better on supported devices, which currently are Lumia 630, 730 and 830. Perfect for people that don’t want to be dealing with critical bugs and such problems. And what of the next build of Windows 10 for Phones? Redmond is yet to provide any new intelligence on the matter, but the company is expected to release the next build to the fast ring users in early March. Provided it sticks to its monthly schedule...Follow Windows 10 Phone developments on our forum.
