Here’s what to do immediately after you install the Windows 10 January Technical Preview Few people expected it, but Microsoft released the Windows 10 January Technical Preview bits at 9 a.m. PT on Friday. If you’ve been running the earlier tech previews, it’s one small step back and several giant steps forward. Stability reports are excellent -- I haven’t had any problems on a dozen machines. If you don’t yet have your update and are willing to ride the beta roller coaster, sign up for the Insider Program, choose a suitable PC (or VM), and give it a whirl. Now that Microsoft’s servers have emerged from terminal meltdown, it should be relatively easy. If you're trying to install the latest Windows 10 build on a Windows 8.1 PC, you may be greeted by the notice "Windows can't be installed because this PC uses a compressed operating system." I got it while trying to put build 9926 on a brand-new Asus Transformer. The culprit? WIMboot. It's a Microsoft technology that squeezes Windows into a smaller footprint, so Windows can essentially boot from a compressed image.

While Microsoft’s recent Windows 10 event had a strong consumer flavour, the company also unveiled a number of changes to the operating system that will undoubtedly impact corporate IT. Significantly for IT departments, Windows 10 will have a new update model. There is also a new programming interface (the universal app development platform) and integration of the OS with Microsoft’s Azure cloud services. The return of the Start Menu may make Windows 10 look more like Windows 7.5, but under the skin it’s a direct descendant of Windows 8.1. Many of its key features have been trialled in Windows 8, or are updates of Windows 8 elements, focusing on the desktop rather than on touch. Continuous updates While Windows 10 will still be licensed to ship with new PCs, the focus, according to Windows lead Terry Myerson, is “Windows as a service”. And that will change the company’s relationship with its end users. A key element of the new model is Microsoft’s forsaking the big bang OS update in favour of continuous

Microsoft's Windows 10 OS will provide a new set of opportunities for developers to build apps for PCs, phones and devices via a unified platform. With Windows 10, Microsoft is opening a new page for Windows users and a vast set of opportunities for developers. In short, Windows 10 offers Microsoft's boldest attempt to deliver what the company has been working toward and what developers have long been looking for: one platform upon which to develop apps for phones, PCs, tablets and other devices. According to Steve "Guggs" Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Developer Platform & Evangelism and chief evangelist for Microsoft, Windows 10 will offer developers the power, potential and reach of a truly unified platform. "What this means: with Windows 10, app publishers will be able to reach Xbox One, phones, tablets, embedded devices, PCs and emerging devices with one universal app via a single store," Guggenheimer said in a blog post.

 Microsoft's Spartan browser

Before Microsoft's January 21 Windows 10 reveal, a lot of information had leaked about Microsoft's new Windows 10 browser, codenamed "Spartan." During the January 21 event, Microsoft officials showed off a glimpse of Spartan in action, promising that it would be available to testers in its Technical Preview program in the coming months. The first public preview of Windows 10 mobile for Windows Phones and under eight-inch tablets is coming in February, but it won't include Spartan, Microsoft officials confirmed. And next week's January Technical Preview test build of Windows 10 for desktops won't include Spartan yet, either, Microsoft execs have confirmed. During yesterday's demonstration, Microsoft officials showed off how users will be able to annotate and share Web pages using Spartan, as leaks previously indicated would be the case. They also showed Spartan's built-in reading experience capabilities and the expected Cortana integration. And, as previously leaked, Spartan will work on Windows Phones, tablets and PCs. In effect, Spartan is the replacement for "Modern" IE (the Metro-Style/Windows Store version of IE that shipped with Windows 8.) On January 22, Microsoft officials went public with more about the internals of Spartan via a post to Microsoft's IE Blog. Microsoft is positioning Spartan as a brand-new browser -- something different from Internet Explorer...For more complete details visit our forum.

Spartan Browser Could Be Named

The Spartan browser, or more accurately understood as 'Project Spartan' is a next-generation web browser for Windows 10. Its main features include being a Store app for dynamic updates, using the older IE11 rendering engine for legacy websites, Cortana integration, and the ability to annotate right on the web page for document sharing. However, Spartan is not the final name, just the internal codename that Microsoft is currently using for the project. The question is, what will Microsoft call the browser upon its final release? A new report suggests a few names are being kicked around and we have the list. The information comes from a person who participated in an online survey from a company acting on behalf of Microsoft. Although 'Spartan' was not named specifically, it was referred to in the description including "Writing on webpages", "A built-in digital assistant" and the fact that it is a browser from Microsoft launching later this year. No doubt that the survey is referring to Project Spartan. This list would create possible combinations such as 'IE Evex' or 'Microsoft Elixa' or 'Internet Explorer Edge'. Those possible combinations are interesting because, if accurate, it demonstrates that Microsoft is considering dropping IE or Internet Explorer from the new name. That is something that has been brought up before due the heavy baggage associated with the browser...For the possible names visit windows8newsinfo forum.

windows 10 JTP Known Issues

As you all know, Microsoft today released the Windows Technical Preview January Build 9926. This Build 9926 is now available for download for Windows Insiders. Microsoft is pushing Build 9926 out widely, fighting simultaneously to both “Fast” and “Slow” rings simultaneously as well as available on ISOs. Here is a list of a few issues with Build 9926. As with the last builds, Microsoft may release updates to fix some of the most prevalent issues and others may be fixed in subsequent builds. After installing this build, you may see a boot selection menu each time you reboot your PC. This is because a bug where a second boot option is persisted to uninstall the Windows 10 Technical Preview and roll back to the previous OS installed. When you get to this screen, if you do nothing it will automatically boot to the Windows 10 Technical Preview within 30 seconds by default or you can choose it on your own. Don’t worry, this behavior is only temporary. Xbox Live enabled games that require sign-in will not launch correctly. If you see the below dialog box the game requires Xbox Live sign-in. A fix for this will be distributed via WU shortly after the release of Build 9926. Battery icon shows on lock screen of PCs without batteries. In Cortana, reminders can’t be edited and more complex reminders might not get created...We will keep adding to this as more become available ay windows8newsinfo forum.

Windows 10 will ship with two web browsers

When Windows 10 launches later this year, it’ll include a new web browser designed to run on phones, tablets, notebooks, or desktops. Code-named Project Spartan, the new browser is a Universal Windows App, and it includes new features include support for annotating web pages and integration with the Cortana personal assistant feature of Windows. But Spartan won’t be the only web browser included with Windows 10. Microsoft says the next-gen version of its desktop operating system will also include Internet Explorer. That’s because there may be some users that need to access websites that use custom ActiveX controls, Browser Helper Objects, or other features that are only available to Internet Explorer users. Rather than force developers of those web apps to update their software before the year is out (and risk having users decide not to upgrade to Windows 10 when developers fail to do so), Microsoft is including IE in Windows 10 for users that still need it. The Spartan web browser has an entirely new rendering engine, but it can also load the Internet Explorer 11 engine for older websites that might not be optimized for Spartan and other web browsers. Interestingly, the version of Internet Explorer that ships with Windows 10 will also use dual rendering engines: it will also be able to use the Spartan engine to render web content...For more turn to our forum.

Windows 10 is free for lifetime of device

Microsoft announced earlier today that Windows 10 would be free for all Windows 7 users and Windows 8.1 users within the first year of Windows 10's launch. This is excellent news, as it means there's no excuse for users running the older operating systems to upgrade. However, it appears there is some confusion as to whether users who upgraded will need to pay after that year. Gabe Aul on Twitter has confirmed that those who update to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will receive Windows 10 for the lifetime of their device, meaning you don't need to pay yearly or monthly fee after that first year is up. So yes, everyone can relax and look forward to updating to Windows 10 when it launches later this year. Now, that doesn't mean new customers won't have to pay for Windows 10. Right now, it only looks like Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users will get a free pass to Windows 10. New customers coming from other operating systems may have to pay for a license, or perhaps Microsoft is planning a subscription based module for Windows 10? Windows 10 will run on all device form factors, including PC, tablet, phone, Xbox and big screen displays. The company earlier today unveiled a number of new OS features, including Spartan, Cortana, and more, which will be available to Windows Insiders over the next few months...More encouraging news on this upcoming OS can be found at windows8newsinfo forum.
