    Windows 10 anniversary update

    It's taking long enough. Clearly this is a little more than rearranging the icons on the start menu.
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    I didn't update. Probably I will have Windows 15... in my next computer.

      Oh FFS! Followed the link to download MS's update tool to manually install the update; told it to "upgrade this PC". It chugged away for an hour and has left me with exactly the same version I had before!

        I'm going to avoid manually requesting the update (presuming it's not yet automatically being applied for the masses) until you guinea pigs have reported all the issues.

        Should be safe in a few weeks after the next update.
        Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

            My SurfaceBook - sorry, MyCo's SurfaceBook - has just completed the update. Few bits and pieces seem different - notification icon has moved to far right of taskbar, for example, and the Start Menu has changed (again!).....oh, and there is a Windows Ink Workspace icon towards on the taskbar, too.

            Will investigate further when Client demands subside in the after-lunch lull

              Don't forget the new Ubuntu supported 'Bash shell/Windows Subsystem for Linux' which takes Torvald's 'baby' (the Linux kernel) out of the loop - that's what I'm looking forward to try:

              Windows 10 Anniversary
              Bash Shell
              |
              gcc producing ELF binaries, git, grep, sudo, awk, Python, Ruby etc
              |
              Windows Subsystem for Linux

              Linux
              Bash Shell
              |
              gcc producing ELF binaries, git, grep, sudo, awk, Python, Ruby etc

                Wonder if it's as bad as Cygwin or the piss-awful Unix Services for Windows subsystem we needed for GPFS clusters....

                  Although I've not used it yet:
                  1) Apparently .. there are no DLLs like Cygwin, rather it's like Linux 'Wine' in reverse with Linux->Win10 run time system call mapping
                  2) Allegedly .. compile source using gcc on Win10, ftp binary UNCHANGED to Ubuntu Linux. Run binary on Ubuntu.

                  "This is not a VM. This is not cross-compiled tools. This is native ...We've partnered with Canonical
                  We've actually taken the Linux UserMode code from Ubuntu and we've built a subsystem into the Windows kernel to expose an interface that looks to all intents and purposes like Linux to a Linux UserMode.
                  So we've integrated Windows and the Linux UserMode code to run smoothly on Windows. We're calling this Windows Subsystem for Linux."

                    I have it today. Obviously I was a bit too keen yesterday.

                    Start menu is better because it now shows all the programs. Notifications are in the bottom right corner which kind of pushes the clock into the wrong position, but otherwise haven't noticed anything particularly different.

                    Linuxy bash thing sounds interesting. Now if I could only think of a single reason I might want to use that.
