Windows users have long had access to iTunes, and the availability is as simple to get as going to Apple's website to download the software. Back in May, however, the companies announced that iTunes will be made available in the Microsoft Store -- that is, in Microsoft's online store for downloading apps. Why make it available there when users can download it from Apple? Because that's the only way Windows 10 S users will be able to get it.

Do not download Windows Movie Maker from any source

Do not download Windows Movie Maker from any source

The start of 2017 was a bittersweet one for many fans of Microsoft’s built-in Windows software like Live Mail and Movie Maker. The company has permanently retired the Windows Essential 2012 bundle from both download and support. But while many of the apps in that pack had counterparts in Windows 10, Windows Movie Maker didn’t, forcing users to look for alternative download sources. Naturally, those illegitimate sources are the perfect breeding ground for scammers looking for a way to make a quick buck out of people’s desperation.

One of the biggest criticisms of Chromebooks was on how they looked like a laptop but didn’t act like one. At least not like typical Windows or macOS laptops. That might be an unfair comparison but it points out one of the platform’s biggest flaws: the lack of software. Google has partly solved that by enabling Android apps on Chrome OS. The other part of the solution is coming from software developers CodeWeavers, who is making the beta version of their CrossOver for Chrome OS available to the public, allowing Chromebook owners to run some of the most popular and widely-used Windows programs on their laptops.
