Those who were lucky enough to install it before Microsoft let themselves be panicked, noted that the Windows team had rejected some interface ideas in the form of A redesigned start menu.

was a statement of "error" from Microsoft, Sinofsky wondered if the Windows giant was referring to the design or launch.

Windows Insiders backs up some compilations with a new Fast Ring broadcast

Accidentally removing build 18947 from its insider hole, Microsoft completed the week with build 18945, aimed at Fast Ring members .

While the odd-looking startup menu seen in the unplanned version does not present this time, the most interesting changes are This includes a much requested solution in the company's new Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL ) 2.

WSL 2, which had a surprise appearance at the company's Build event, increased the initial bet of the previous version using a tuned Linux. Kernel instead of a translation layer. The performance increases for some applications were impressive, but there were some disadvantages.

The biggest whim was the need to use an IP address to access local Linux applications. With the latest preview code cutout, Linux network applications can now be accessed from Windows through good old localhost .

Additional modifications include the ability to establish a global configuration for WSL and an ingenious method to select a custom Linux kernel if the version 4.19 included with Windows simply does not cut it.

Outside the niche of WSL 2 developers, Microsoft has also begun to implement a "new Cortana experience" in beta form for some Windows experts in the US. UU. .

The justification is that in The wonderful multiplatform world of productivity applications, "it no longer makes sense to use any platform specific sub-brand." , Windows and iOS would agree.

As such, the company admits that it could be called "Office for the web," or maybe "… on the web," or maybe "… in a browser." [19659004] And just to keep things more consistent, there are no plans to point the rebrandgun to projects like Project Online.

As for the change, we would suggest something like "Online hole", or "Are we too cheap?" To have the right Office applications? "

It may not be so agile.
