Win10 update bugs . . . reinforce need for backups

Let’s be careful and not get complacent – – there are many solid programs for managing backups if you don’t use a Cloud Service like Dropbox or Google Drive (which is probably the best value).

Ubuntu “Eoan Ermine” (aka Ubuntu 19.10) Release Update . .

Ubuntu 19.10 is officially released (10-17-2019).    As this is an “interim” release which is supported  for 9 months, about 95% of Ubuntu users usually elect to remain on the latest LTS (long-term-support) version of Ubuntu which has a 5 year support cycle.

But, if you like to see the “latest & greatest” features and updates (“bleeding edge vs leading edge”) – then feel free to do the online update.   Just be sure you understand the best way to process the update.

BTW:   The term “Ermine” is another name for the common “Stoat” – – an especially capable predator.   The Ermine label often refers to the winter coated version of the stoat (white color with a black tip on end of the tail).

Adding a “local” user account . . becoming more difficult in WIndows

For some folks (maybe most?) this policy-design change is a big “nothing-burger”.    Not so for me.   I prefer more local control of my PC devices (including the OS).   Win10 Pro not “yet” impacted . .
