The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), a new Windows 10 feature that enables you to run native Linux command-line tools directly on Windows, alongside your traditional Windows desktop and modern store apps, is no longer in beta and will be fully supported in the Fall Creators Update later this year. Users will be able to share and access files on the Windows filesystem from within Linux, and call Linux executables from Windows and vice versa. We're excited to announce that in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (FCU) due to ship in fall 2017, Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) will no longer be a beta feature and will become a fully supported Windows feature. Early adopters on the Windows Insider program will notice that WSL is no longer marked as a beta feature as of Insider build 16251. This will be great news for those who've held-back from employing WSL as a mainline toolset: You'll now be able to leverage WSL as a day-to-day developer toolset, and become ever more productive when building, testing, deploying, and managing your apps and systems on Windows 10.

With the Windows 10 Creator’s Update rolling out from last week, there’s a long install period followed by an welcome screen with Microsoft’s highlighted features.
Not everyone is a fan of those welcome pages, indeed some people just plan to use Windows as they used it before, which is how their grandfathers used it and how their children will use it – as a chrome and office launcher. Others may already know all these features, and so it isn’t important to get them highlighted. Microsoft has stealthily added an option to disable the welcome screen from the Creators Update onwards. So while you won’t be able to use it now from, it’ll take effect from the Fall Creators Update onwards for a regular user, and on Insider builds for Insiders.

You can buy this 18-carat gold mini PC… for $1 million PDF Print E-mail

Swiss company Prime Computer offers a line of small, fanless desktop computers that are basically modified versions of Intel’s NUC mini PCs. Priced at 1,099 Swiss Franks ($1135) and up, they’re not exactly cheap. But now the company is offering something really special (and expensive): a computer covered in 18-carat gold. It’s a limited-edition model that will sell for $1 million. And it’ll probably be a solid gold doorstop eventually, since there’s no easy way to upgrade the processor on this type of computer. I guess the good news is that the 7 kilograms (about 15 pounds) of gold used in the case will probably hold its value even as the PC’s specs start to look dated. The little computer does offer some decent specs: it has an Intel Core i5 processor and supports up to 32GB of RAM and up to 5 terabytes of solid state storage. It comes with Windows 10 Pro or Linux-based software. And if a gold-encrusted PC isn’t extravagant enough for you, there’s also an option to cover the power button with a precious stone. Clearly, the limited edition Prime Computer computer with a gold case is a luxury item for folks who’d rather spend $1 million too much on a PC than find something better to do with their money. But as FanlessTech notes, there is one (kind of) practical benefit to using gold: it’s a durable material that conducts heat pretty well, so it should be at least as effective as aluminum in helping dissipate heat in this fanless computer.

CIA hacking tool exposes myth of “safe” Mac and Linux computers PDF Print E-mail

WikiLeaks today revealed 3 new hacking tools built by the CIA that target Mac and Linux computers. The leaked hacking tools are supposedly related to the CIA’s so-called Imperial project.
The first hacking tool called Achilles is probably the most interesting out of the three. Achilles can be used by CIA operators to essentially pack malicious applications with an actual macOS app (.dmg) for one-time execution. Once a user installs the infected file, the malicious app would run in the background without the user noticing its execution, and it’ll also self-destruct — leaving the actual application look untouched. The first version of Achilles was built back in 2011, tested only on macOS’ Snow Leopard (10.6).

If you see the message It looks like someone else might be using your account when you go on to sign into your Outlook, SkyDrive, Xbox, here are a few things you need to know.

With so much on offer, and that too for free, it does sound like a brilliant deal – and it is no doubt. However, there is one downside – it is not rare for users of Microsoft Accounts to see a message – It looks like someone else might be using your account message from Microsoft.

Looks like there is no such thing as the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update after PDF Print E-mail

It was reported earlier this week that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be known as the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update in some countries. As it turns out, that’s not going to be the case.
Microsoft today confirmed (via Ars Technica) that there is no such thing as the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update. Redmond claimed that the name was shown in some countries due to “mistranslation” and that the update will indeed be known as the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update everywhere. It is no secret that the “Windows 10 Fall Creators Update” is one of the worst product names from Microsoft. In parts of the world, there is no such thing as Fall due to the fact that the season is referred to as Autumn in some regions and Spring in others. If the update had different names in different parts of the world, that would actually be even worse as it’ll result in confusion for regular users. Microsoft hasn’t been too creative when it comes to naming Windows 10 updates, and I personally hope it doesn’t get any worse from here.
