Windows 10 updates

Microsoft is starting to automatically push Windows 10 1903 to Home, Pro users on 1803 or older via Win Update The second 19H2 build is out with new features (which no one can test right now) Surface Book 2s are blocked from getting 1903 (it makes the GPU "vanish")

Chredge: Now ready for enterprise testers

Microsoft is encouraging IT pros to start kicking the Chredge tires We now have an updated enterprise roadmap listing which features are coming when But we still don't have a date for GA or even the Beta channel

Partners: More Inspired (or tired)?

Crisis averted: Microsoft undid those Internal Use Rights changes that had so many up in arms last week But questions remain: When and how will Microsoft try to "fix" this situation again. Also, how did this fiasco happen in the first place? Related: Microsoft does a holoportation demo live at Inspire (and it worked!)Related: Azure Lighthouse ? what is this thing?

Meanwhile, back at the Office...

Microsoft has more AI tricks up its sleeve with Cortana reminders - heads up emails Teams is now at 13 million daily active users. Is that a lot? Skype is going to lose its SMS Connect feature at the end of August

WW 629: If I Still Had My Wigs and Costumes

Microsoft partners are on a rampage

Microsoft is cutting internal use rights for its products and services, meaning no more free ride on product licensing for partners Not a good look for Microsoft the week before its annual partner rah-rah fest. And potentially a risky move, too Is it really all about the money? Or is this also a way to winnow down the partner contingent, eliminating smaller partners Also bad timing: The week before its Ready sales kick-off Microsoft is cutting jobs and moving folks around

Windows 10: As the Insider builds turn

ISOs are out for 18932 (Windows 10 20H1) A new Windows Server 20H1 build is out. What's new? No idea All the existing Windows 10 variants (1507 to 1903) got Cumulative Update patches on Patch Tuesday Related: Remix3D.com shutdown is imminent. (Wait, it's still there?)

Non-Windows Microsoft news

Microsoft Android apps getting house ads - What are we to make of this? Look who's on the private Linux developer list Microsoft is not moving to manufacture out of China Feeling British? Try these new Surface skins

To the cloud

Microsoft's Desktop Analytics service now in preview. And of course, it's got an AI angleServiceNow becomes the latest ISV to make Azure its 'preferred cloud'

Xbox

WW 623: Paul Does Math

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, againMicrosoft celebrates 10 years of Bing. Which was not its first search engine. Or 2nd or 3rd either. When did Bing finally turn a profit? 2015Microsoft is making a Pro IntelliMouse for some reason.There's a purple Xbox One S on the way!New messaging experience comes to Xbox appRelated: PS Now is the biggest game streaming service today

Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Configure Paste Options in OneNote for Windows 10App pick of the week: Use your iPhone camera to turn a photo of table data into a spreadsheetEnterprise pick of the week: Admins deploying 1903: Check this boxCodename pick of the week: KumoBeer pick of the week: Edmund's Oast Brewing Company Fountain Drink
