[h=1]Windows 10 Mail app updated with more personalization options[/h]
In case you don't know by now, the Windows 10 Mail app is fantastic, and becomes even moreso today with a new update. One of the key changes is one click switching between accounts. Before you would, annoyingly, be required to make two (doesn't get much more "first world problems" than that, huh?), but those days are over now.
Next is more personalisation options, allowing you to customize colours in the left pane and for email selection (you can pre-select from a list or add an image of your own to draw from), as well as switch between the previous light theme and a new dark theme.
It's possible other changes are hiding beneath the surface as well.
Enterprise customers will be able to disable this tracking soon, though the company strongly advises against it. That's all well and good, but there's also text message tracking (for suggestion purposes) and personalization tracking (which lets Microsoft know you're really into the Seahawks, for example). If that sort of thing creeps you out, you can disable it via the Settings > Privacy menu, if you didn't already do so when you installed the OS.
I believe this was left out of the post that Paul Desmond posted about Terry Myerson on MS privacy.
Microsoft on Thursday announced that it is building its own Linux distribution to manage cloud networks.
Through the Azure Cloud Switch, or ACS, Microsoft aims to help network operators rapidly add the network features they need, while avoiding changes that would increase risk and complexity, said Kamala Subramaniam, principal architect for Azure Networking.
Cloud users have many excellent switch hardware platforms to choose from, she noted. Healthy competition exists between many vendors, which drives innovation, increases speed and reduces costs.
The challenge for maintaining cloud and enterprise networks "is integrating the radically different software running on each different type of switch into a cloud-wide network management platform," Subramaniam said.
[h=2]What It Is[/h] The Azure Cloud Switch is a Linux-based cross-platform modular operating system for data center networking. It provides a much faster way to debug, fix, and test software bugs, Subramaniam pointed out.
It gives Microsoft the flexibility to scale down the software and develop the features required for its data center and networking needs.
ACS provides a foundation for integrating the software that runs networking hardware, such as switches. Its use of the switch abstraction interface, or SAI, allows sharing of the same software on hardware from multiple vendors.
Traditional switch software is built to accommodate different customers with an assortment of scenarios and feature requests. With ACS, on the other hand, feature development is geared toward Microsoft's specific priorities.
Nice one! I just updated mine.
