Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 226 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 226 of Observed.Tech. It should not come as a surprise that we have a lot of Windows 10 related topics to talk about in this show plus a whole lot more. I kick off this episode talking about a patch that surfaced this week that allows users to bypass Microsoft's patch from a couple of weeks ago that blocked the installation of Windows 7/8.1 on modern devices. This had been announced by Microsoft for well over a year ago and April's Patch Tuesday was the day of reckoning. Well this patch will certainly allow a user to install Windows 7/8.1 on these newer devices but is it worth the risk? My opinion is that anything which messes with the integrity of your operating system is not worth it plus Windows 7 will be out of support in less than three years - time to move forward! OK - in other news we learned this week there will now be a predictable release cycle for not only Windows 10 but also Office 365 and System Center Configuration Manager. In addition, each product update will be supported for 18 months after its release which means users should be moving along with the development of the operating system instead of staying with it for 10 years at a time. This is good and will keep end users on a modern OS capable of doing what they need it to do. I also have other items about a Windows 10 information push from Microsoft, a few hands on videos/galleries of Windows 10 Creators Update features, Steve Ballmer's new website project, Xbox updates, IoT news from Microsoft, and the risk in crowd funding projects. Enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
