    Nice job, Shawn! You tutorials get more sophisticated and more "modern" all the time. And with videos!

    This Modern zPC Settings app is interesting indeed. I'll refrain from my opinion to leave it out of the tutorial section.

    Yeah, I'm hoping it will just be a newer PC settings with more options, and the traditional Control Panel will still be available for those that like it as well.
