Windows Weekly 695: Azure in SPAAACE!
Oct 21 2020 132 mins  
It's Windows 10 20H2 time! Also, Edge on Linux Microsoft releases the October 2020 Update to 'seekers' Here are the "biggest" new features Here are the known issues Here is when Microsoft will halt the release because of problems. Kidding. Maybe. More Windows News New Dev channel build brings theme-aware splash screens to some built-in apps Windows 10 comes to Chromebook (Enterprise) via Parallels Desktop. Semi-related: A Your Phone rant by MJF. This should be a great app. It's not but I hope it's fixable. The Office PWA saga continues Office PWAs were being installed on Insider PCs. And then on normal PCs. Now, Microsoft says it's just a bug in Edge and will be fixed. That said... Shouldn't these apps be installed in Windows 10? And speaking of PWAs: There's a way to start testing by putting them in the Microsoft Store with PWA Builder Hell freezes over. Again. Microsoft releases Edge browser preview on Linux. Semi-related: Chromium-based WebView2 starts rolling out (Win32 only) Cloud News Microsoft launches Azure into space. Microsoft launches Azure in a container (again?) Xbox News Halo: The Master Chief Collection is getting a 120 fps upgrade on Xbox Series X|S October Update for Xbox is available. And yes, this is what the Xbox Series X|S UI will look like too. Related: Sony PS5 UI looks ... familiar. Tips and picks Tip of the week: How to get Windows 10 20H2. If you're on Windows 10 version 1903 or newer, check for updates: If your PC configuration is not blocked, you'll get it. More technical users who aren't worried can simply get the update from the Update Assistant or the newly-available ISO. Tip of the week #2: Here's how to "fix" Alt + Tab in 20H2. Don't like how Edge tabs appear as their own "apps" in Alt + Tab? Here's how to fix that problem. (I hate it.) Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft, the live events consultant. Microsoft isn't running just its own live events. It's now seemingly in the business Codename pick of the week: Akri. Is Kubernetes driving you over the edge? You need Akri. Akri (translates to "edge" in Greek) is a new open source project. Akri (sort of) stands for A Kubernetes Interface for the edge. This is for edge devices too small to run Kubernetes themselves and which users may want to connect to Kubernetes.
