    It's really hard to believe.. that companies are still so trusting of MS (with Azure, Cloud etc - MSFT are gaining huge there - no doubt in competition with Linux server and Google) and the rest have to endure the Fallen ..

    Hi there
    I Think Azure / other Ms cloud services use RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise servers) or similar -- now IBM has bought out Red Hat it could be an interesting mix remembering in the past how often Ms and IBM had arguments.

    There's no way mega large cloud services with 100,000's of enterprise level users and large MySQL type databases expecting decent response times could even think of running these on Windows type servers !!!! .

    Windows servers can provide decent-ish Virtual desktop infrastructure at company level -- but for providing globally based cloud computing -- I don't think so.

    Cheers

    The question is, will they soft launch the re-roll like nothing happened or will they make a big spectable out of it. If it's the latter then people who didn't know about the update - or the pause - will scratch their head by the name "October". The update didn't auto-push to WU on Oct 2nd, so users who already have it deliberately knew about this. It doesn't make much sense if the marketing and welcoming is gated and signed for October when we're currently in November. Either way it doesn't really matter, but I can see it confusing someone if they don't change the name or make it clear in their words when they start the re-roll process. MS should stop calling the updates for months and instead use numbers, quarters, or simply have fun with it, like the 1809 Chocolate Update or something.

    Well, in that case "Fall update" is appropriate name, it has fallen and can't get up. Compilation by AFX - YouTube

    I'm rarely confronted with a near-white background- like you I dislike that. Changes I made from Win 8 onwards have been ones I've stuck with.

    A couple of well-publicised registry changes (or use Superfly's SMACC) and Qttabbar by Quizo (free) for explorer-related backgrounds.

    Thanks, Dalchina. I guess I need to go on a hunting expedition.

    Yes, the fix to the zip bug has been in the Release Preview ring since Tuesday last week.

    Hi there

    amazing lot of websites also have things like Blue (or Red) text on black backgrounds - I wonder if those people who design that type of website have ever tried to read text on it !!!

    When doing photoshop (I love real photography -- hate "snaps taken with camera phones" ) I always have a light grey workspace when using photoshop -- works excellently.

    Cheers

    Yeah, I've noticed that, Jimbo. If I happen onto one of those sites, I just quietly leave without comment. Thank goodness that those generally in the Windows community generally understand our needs and build accordingly.

    My daughter uses her phone and gets some pretty good pictures, but I'm of the old school . . . I use a digital camera with as many megapixels as I can afford.
