It's long been a goal of Microsoft's to make Skype plugin free on the web, and by the end of the month, the Redmond outfit will achieve that goal when using Skype on its Edge browser. Without any downloads or plugins to install, Skype users will have access to real-time voice, video, and group calling through Skype for Web, Outlook.com, Office Online, and OneDrive. "Plugin-free calling in Edge is the first step towards an interoperable, standards-based calling experience in Skype and Skype for Business, so that Skype users on any modern platform can communicate without the need for plugins or downloads.," Microsoft Edge Program Manager Kyle Pflug announced in a blog post. It was back in October of 2014 that Microsoft said its aim was to "make browser-based calls more convenient by removing the need to download a plugin," and so it began collaborating with W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) and IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) to improve standards towards that goal.The plugin free experience that's emerged is powered by the Object RTC (ORTC) media engine, an API that Microsoft recently embedded in Edge.

Microsoft launched an online emulator that allows users to try out the Windows 10 experience prior to getting an upgrade. Overall, the emulator covers three sections that include Windows 10 for PC, Windows 10 for Tablets and Windows 10 Mobile. Upon going to Microsoft's official Windows 10 Emulator site, users will find a faux laptop and recorded videos where they can get a glimpse of how things are done in Windows 10. First, users would see the question "What would you like to do?" on the screen which is then followed by 11 topics that are ready for clicking and exploring. These include work across my devices; meet Cortana; get more done; stay organized; get apps and more; personalize my PC; keep in touch; browse the web; manage my photos; have more fun; and find my way with maps. There are some slight differences in the topics depending on whether the user is viewing the demo on a PC, tablet or mobile device. For both the tablet and mobile device, users will find the topic "take and share photos" instead of "manage my photos" found on the PC. read the whole article on our Windows 10 Forum

Windows 10 is off to a great start it seems. The upgrade has so far captured 12% market share at the expense of Windows 8.1. Growth is expected to accelerate later this year as enterprises begin embracing the OS. The platform has also expanded, Windows 10 is not just about traditional notebooks, tablets and mobile phones. Microsoft has provided support for the maker community, which focuses on the new wave of IoT devices such as the Raspberry PI. Windows 10 also got its first major update in November of 2015, dubbed the November Update or 1511. Microsoft ended out the year with a preview of the next major update, Redstone, which will introduce new features such as a Universal OneDrive and Skype app, improved Edge web browser with support for Extensions and improved Mail app. That sounds great, but I want discuss my personal experience with Windows 10 over the past 9 months. Does it make sense to keep trying to avoid Windows 10 and stick with Windows 7? Is it all it turned out to be? .. Read more on our Forum

In addition to upgrades for Cortana and improved pen support, the Windows 10 anniversary update will also include several apps and features to make life easier for schools. Likely taking a cue from the rising popularity of Chromebooks in the classroom, Microsoft is making Windows 10 setup faster for shared computers. Teachers will be able to configure devices on their own with a new "Set Up School PCs" app, and Microsoft says that logging into a new account for the first time should take around 26 seconds (afterwards, logins should take just 6 seconds). That's not exactly zippy for a first-time login, but it sounds faster than previous versions of Windows. Microsoft Classroom, a new part of Office 365 for education, will give teachers a single location to manage their entire classroom workflow. Schools can also use Microsoft School Data Sync (SDS) to integrate Classroom with their existing data systems. Additionally, there's also a new "Take a Test" app to help teachers administer secure exams, which can be

At today's Facebook F8 conference, the social networking company announced a key partnership with Microsoft designed to give Windows 10 a little more love from developers. Facebook's mega-popular and free React Native tool helps developers build slick mobile apps for iPhone and Android. Wednesday's partnership bring the tool to Windows 10's Universal Windows Platform, too. For those many developers with existing React Native apps, it means an easier way to bring their apps to Windows 10 and its 270 million-plus users — across PCs, phones, tablets, and soon, the Xbox One console. For developers already writing code for Windows 10, it means they can integrate all or some of React Native and give their apps some Facebook-powered sheen. React Native has a huge and thriving community of more than 250,000 developers, Facebook's Christine Abernathy claimed on stage at F8 today.

Windows 10 collects a lot of user data but Microsoft says it is all in an effort to deliver the best user experience. In HBO's critically acclaimed series, The Wire, Omar Little has a saying he uses to justify his crimes: "it's all in the game." Omar's saying refers to the Baltimore drug trade, but it can be applied to the recent outcry against Windows 10 data collection. Windows 10 sends telemetry, personalization and services, and advertising data back to Microsoft's servers, but that's the tradeoff users must accept if they want Windows 10 features such as Cortana to work to their full potential. And the reality is Apple iOS and Mac OS X, Chrome and Android all collect similar information. Nothing is really completely private: it's all in the game. What to expect from Windows 10 data collection? For starters, Windows 10 collects telemetry data, including security settings, memory snapshots, crashes and application usage. In Microsoft's privacy statement the company says Windows 10 also collects data from emails, text messages, contact lists, passwords, user names, IP addresses, website visits,
