The P2P Patching Option In Windows 10

Windows Live Mail Support

Windows 10 Features

The latest Windows 10 build, 10036, – also a beta – has somehow made its way out of the Redmond campus. WZOR brought it to people’s attention first, as they do a lot of the time; right now, many are having a go at using all the interesting new features in this edition.

What is unusual is that Windows 10 apparently lets you Choose how you download updates, and under this is an option that says Download apps and OS updates from multiple sources to get them more quickly. If you enable this, you get have the further provision to Download apps from Microsoft and: PCs on my local network; PCs on my local network, and PCs on the Internet.

Neither the leak nor the screenshot have been confirmed as real as yet, but if P2P has been brought in, the appeal of it cannot be denied. If all you needed were for the PC to connect to the neighbor’s computer, instead of the Update services each time, the process speeds would go through the roof. A local area network would be all that has needed as long as there is someone in the area who already updated their PC. Home users could benefit from fast and uninterrupted update rendering on their machines.

Hackers are probably remembering Stuxnet, which Microsoft allowed to creep in five years back. This is reason enough to doubt their attempt at peer-to-peer patching. You see plenty of misgivings voiced about this on Windows Live mail support forums.

The other features found include one to bring up the size of the Start Menu, getting it to full screen. That brings in the old Windows 8 TIFKAM feel. You also have a more consistent UI, which looks a lot like a bolstered Windows Defender.

Windows 10 Patching

All of this probably has something to do with the piles of feedback the company got out of users around the world. Remember this OS has already gathered over to a million different user suggestions. Peer-to-peer patching is not something that many are in need of, but then there are other features of which the same could be said. Most new features are topics of heavy discussion on Windows Live mail support forums.

The Update provisions aside, this new build brings in many other features, most as a result if the feedback taken in over the Insider Program.

Windows Build 10036 Leak From WZor

Windows Live Support

Windows 10 Release

Buffs await the release of Windows 10, while many others are trying to get their hands on whatever new they can find about the latest build. One of the newer leak videos on YouTube shows what is being called version number 10036. Put up on March 12, this video showcases a leak whose supposed screenshots also came up on the Russian blog

The video itself focuses on some of the new features in the new OS, such as the Task View, and the provision to drag-and-drop applications to launch desktops. This is useful for those users who wish to move around more freely between app and desktop milieus.

In another screenshot of the 10036 build, you see a new Wi-Fi selection window. The current builds need you to hit the “Wi-Fi” option inside the Action Center if you want to be making any changes. Version 10036 is able to speed the process up by letting the user make their changes inside a separately opened window.

Another newbie is the half-transparent Start Menu. Apparently, this only changes the look of the thing, and not the usability. But that seems incongruent with the whole Metro feel that Microsoft was supposedly going for; this fits in better with the style that Windows 7 and Vista espoused.

Release Of Windows 10

Windows 10 Leak

There has been no new build announced from Microsoft of late, and people are desperate to get their next peek at what is happening with the product. Since this is in beta, they do not have any hope of Windows live support at this time. From what has known so far, there are apparently two public release channels for Windows 10. The one for regular updates let you access the features sooner, though this is only available to Microsoft testers. The other one, slower updates, lets you enjoy a longer tested and more refined model of the OS. Gabe Aul tweeted this month that the fast channel was looking to speed up sometime soon.

Another thing he said on Windows blog was that the unset date for the release is a good way to keep work going along at its fastest, with teams able to finish their projects in less time than otherwise. The January build apparently was a case in point. “It paid off,” he wrote in a post. “We got a much fresher build out, with more features and fixes, and we were able to ship on 1/23 as we’d aspired.” And of course with less unfixed issues, it would bring down the need for many customers to call up Windows Live support.

Windows Server Next Is Real

Windows Live Chat Support

Windows Small Server

There had been rumors flying around that Microsoft is working on a leaner version of the Server OS, and now the company has confirmed that these are true. Microsoft let out a new slide deck teasing the “Nano” version of Windows Server that they’re working on, and apparently this will be oriented towards the cloud. You can almost imagine calls flooding the Windows live chat support number about this.

Microsoft had earlier stated that it had plans in a similar direction. They pointed to this at a conference online, with a video presentation featuring Jeffrey Snover, the person behind Windows Server’s design. This video explains a lot of what the slide deck showed off.

Around the 26:00 mark is when things get really interesting, with Snover showing us the roadmap for Windows Server, affirming rumors that the Redmond giant is looking to come up with a lighter version of Windows Server for the cloud. “We are going to have a cloud-optimised server,” he said. “Windows Server will be deeply refactored for a cloud scenario [with] just the components required to do that and nothing else”.

The new tiny server will have an overhead subset of the one that enterprises have all come to know, and prefer using. This, according to Snover, will be “compatible with what you have today”, but will have two application profiles. Apps will aim for either the older existing APIs, or the more advanced and compact cloud alternatives. He also said that Windows Server Next allows installing a designated client, dispelling the vagueness that Microsoft has cultivated their plans around that area. Presumably, there’s more you can find out by dialing the Windows live chat support number.

Windows Server Next

Windows Cloud Server

Snover said that being unclear on such matters is detrimental to the company, in that many developers wrote apps with the local GUI admin tools, inserting business logic in these, making them harder to automate. With the Outlook for cloud computing and server storage going nowhere but up, this isn’t a good way for things to be.

Server Next will place remote desktop services above the client, enabling easier remoting on the server. Microsoft is also preparing two types of containers for this, and these will be deployed when the server hits markets in 2016. One will be “a server in a container” and the other will be aimed towards app compatibility, essentially oriented for the cloud.

Windows Live Messenger is no longer continued by Microsoft. Earlier known as MSN messenger, the popular instant message service Windows Live Messenger has officially retired and given way to the newer and more powerful Microsoft Skype. Founded in 2003, Skype was formally acquired by Microsoft Corporation very recently in 2011.

Skype provides Instant messaging services but it gained popularity for providing video chat and voice calls over the internet. Apart from that, Skype can also be used for exchanging files and images and even conference calls between multiple users. Skype has a large user base because of it is compatible in all platforms, from mobile phones to tablets and even iOS and Android devices. Calling users over internet using VoIP is considerably cheaper than conventional calls. Recently, Microsoft has revealed its plans to use Skype for Enterprise use as well. In place of Microsoft Lync used for business communication, Microsoft will soon roll out Skype for Business in late 2015.
