Windows 10: Getting ready to test Redstone! Solved

    Getting ready to test Redstone!


    Yesterday a few insiders saw a development branch selector show up on their WU settings.
    There was/is a new branch, rs1_release, and looks like that's where the next insider build will drop from.


    Are you excited?

    Not so much excited as I am curious to see how far MS is taking sandboxed WinRT to within the OS. There is more of it in 10 than in 8/8.1. e.g. The CP may be gone altogether replaced with the Settings app. All the default-installed MS Store apps are all sandboxed WinRT such as the Communications app (Mail/Calendar), People, Weather, Maps, Time/Alarms, a version of OneNote, Edge, etc. All coming along nicely with a lot better functionality and more professional-like.

    Also curious as to if MS will release a WinRT Office suite as was reported/rumored last Spring or so. Wondering if they're holding off with that for awhile. As I mentioned, there is a WinRT version of OneNote. Legacy OneNote is part of the Pro suite. Not sure if it comes with the Home or Student editions.

    Just as with 10, I found it kind of humorous upon fresh reinstallation of 8.1 the other day that the default boot was to the desktop and not the Start screen as it was not that way originally. I prefer the Start screen, but the Start menu with "Show more tiles" configuration suffices. Tablet mode is closer, but not configurable with multi-monitors. I'm hoping they add that sooner or later.

    Yep that's some news. However better news would be if MS would extend the GWX for another year. Sure that would be good for them and us. Even in my small shop that upgrade is sending me people all the time. " Can you get my Windows 8 or 7 back for me? The upgrade messed me up!"

    Strange memory figures


    I installed build 11082 on a Hyper-V VM with 4 GB memory configured. To my big surprise, it reports 4 GB installed but 1.45 GB usable. I am absolutely sure that it is the 64 bit version, and even Windows XP 32 bit could use 2.7 GB.

    I think I will wait with the upgrade of my 16 GB laptop itself!

    Anyone seen this?

    Well, this problem disappeared after I rebooted the VM (for other reasons). Now the full 4 GB seems to be useable.

    Strange!

    I was too quick. After some experimenting and another reboot, the reduced memory is back, although with a slightly different figure: it is now 1.57 GB.
