More info here about the WSUS successor, and how it ties into system centre etc:
To be fair to you, it doesn't LOOK like it will work due to the search results UI popping up. Just hit enter and I just about promise it will work!
You can get a windows phone for $50 at Big W in Australia, and it comes with 8.1 and will be upgradable to 10. For $88 I got my son a quad core windows phone with 1gb ram, SD slot, 8gb onboard storage, and a 5mpix camera.
On my windows 10 box running 10074 right this second:
-hit start button on keyboard
-type "ping -t 192.168.0.1" and hit enter
result: command prompt window with ping running against 192.168.0.1
-close that window
-hit start button on keyboard
-type "cmd" and hit enter
result: command prompt window pops up at c:\users\myusername
-type "ping (IP)" and hit enter
Exactly the same as in windows 7. The only difference is that it is ALSO running a search in the background and popping shit into the results window while you do it, but if you hit start, type something, and then hit enter it will run it.
Windows 10 on phones will do this exact thing. Google "continuum windows phone 10" for demo videos etc.
It's pretty cool.
For the last several years you'd use SCCM instead of WSUS, but to answer the "heart" of your question: Yes. You will still have fine grained patch pushout control.
It does work, King used it to port candy crush saga.
You mean from the Apple/Mac world...
I expressed no opinion. I replied with a solution to the commentor's issue. Some of us really are just here to help, and use computers every day.
If you're on a non-tablet (and thus have a keyboard) you can kill any metro app with alt-f4.
In windows 10 you click the x on the top right to exit it. They learned.
In windows 8.1 you swipe from the top, hold for 1 second, and then drag the app to the bottom of the screen. It's silly and convoluted but less convoluted than your method.
You've just described the Australian NBN in a nutshell (before the current government started fucking with it).
The government runs GPON FTTP to every house in populated Australia (there's other plans for remote areas). Those FTTP lines wind up in at ~30 POPs around the country. Any ISP can go into any POP and provide access to users (so you can do regional, or you can do the whole country if you choose). The ISP pays a ultility fee for using the fibre back to the NBN, and the consumer pays a single bill to their ISP without worrying about whose DSLAM they connect to etc etc etc like in the "old" world.
Comparison against placebo is the gold standard for medical research. Why is it unfair to do the same comparison that modern medicine is put to?
Windows 8 had a LOT of improvements for corporate customers. DISM based deployments for a start, as well as huge group policy improvements.
I'm guessing you're referring to the start screen though, as if that's the only change?
Office 365 isn't just the online component, it also gives you the "thick" version of office.
