Microsoft to Windows 10 consumers: You'll get updates LIKE IT or NOT

TheBampot

This is another reason...

...why larger companies are going down the route of desktop virtualisation, or at least looking very closely at it.

Company I work for uses thin clients (embedded Win 7) to open up a shared virtual desktop, which is based on Win Server 2008. As its a server OS, they have more control over the updates, and can pick and choose.

For any user requiring anything more flexible (devs, sysadmins etc), then dedicated virtual machines can be provided (win 7 pro at the moment).

For myself, i'll probably let my home desktop bump up to 10, but then thats mainly to allow xbox streaming. My laptop will remain where it is for the time being, as i use that more for everything else.

definitely worth a read (although site appears to be slow loading at the moment - Krebs has commented that bringing down his site appears to be a prerequisite for joining the lizards...)

Powershell Terminals

TheBampot

I did a MS powershell course recently, and that was pretty much the first thing the trainer told us - fire up the ISE, use that whenever you can.

The multiple tabs alone are brilliant - i usually keep 3 or 4 tabs open, full of useful snippets of code that i can cut and paste into the script i'm currently making a hash of :)

@Law

i see your point, but be fair - does ANYONE who is not a political junkie actually recognise Nick Clegg? Or rate him as anything other than David Cameron's pet?
