Microsoft Should Name Windows 10 Updates After Dogs . .

Currently, MS-Windows update names are . . . really . . . blah!   Not much marketing or creativity there.   But everyone (almost) LOVES dogs!

And, if they would adapt the method Ubuntu uses . . . the next update might just be “Collegial Collie”. . .

Example of “Rare” Customer Service for PC’s

Above is a “same day” response from Emma to an issue I reported on Cecilia’s System76 AIO (all in one) desktop PC.   The PC is out of it’s 1 year warranty but with System76, they continue to provide software support for the life of the PC (at no cost to the customer).

The issue was a Canonical update that issued a flawed kernel in response to the Meltdown/Spectre fiasco.

I’ll provide more detail at our club meeting for the 4 other Linux users in case this is or was an issue for them also.

GoodBye! . . . 32 bit Operating Systems . . .

Yet another nail in the coffin for PC’s still running a 32 bit OS.   So, if there are several club members who still want to run 32 bit . . . . might want to start planning an upgrade to current technology.

This decision will affect all 32-bit systems i.e. Linux, FreeBSD, Microsoft Window 7, Microsoft Windows 8/8.1, and Microsoft Windows 10.
