Windows 10 May 2019 update won’t install with USB, SD card attached

Microsoft's handling of Windows 10's new system of rolling updates has become the most painful and most derided part of the latest version of the operating system. Every major update is regarded with dread, waiting for what will break this time around.

Windows 10 drops password expiration policy because they’re pointless

Windows 10 drops password expiration policy because they’re pointless

Humans are terrible at passwords. You might think they're rare but recent surveys show that many passwords are just as useful as having no password at all. Some systems, in an effort to increase security, force users to change their passwords every 30 or 60 days. Microsoft, however, is dropping that policy in the next major Windows 10 update because studies now show that password expiration policies do nothing to enhance security after all.

Windows Sets tab feature killed even before it could be released

For better or worse, Windows 10 is the most different version of Windows ever since Windows 95. From the way it was released and updated to the features it gained, Microsoft took the opportunity to break away from the past while still holding on to some roots.

Internet Explorer continues to threaten PC users with 0-day exploit

Internet Explorer continues to threaten PC users with 0-day exploit

Microsoft has already thrown in the web browser towel and has based its Edge browser on Chromium and it seems to be in a rush to put its past behind it. Perhaps even too hastily. It may now be practically dead with less than 10% of the browser market, but a recently revealed exploit continues to put users at risk because of IE's unique position.

Opera 60 puts Crypto Wallets and Web 3.0 in your desktop

While Google and Mozilla are fighting over becoming the web browser on all platforms, Opera is fighting a different battle.

Roku is reminding its customers that it's hard at work in improving its product on all fronts and the Rokus OS 9.1 update is the latest fruit of that effort.

The one area where it has had difficulty expanding year after year is the desktop. Not because it's terrible at it but because it needs a few missing pieces that will stop the Year of the Linux desktop from being a running joke.
