  • Setting up Windows 10 with a company account

    Thanks! I am eagerly waiting for the documentation as well :)

  • Setting up Windows 10 with a company account

    I am very excited that finally Microsoft is allowing to use a company account (Azure AD account) to register Windows. I am currently installing Windows 10 and I am trying to add the device as a "company device" but something is not currently working. Is there something I need to activate on Azure AD or the option is still not functional? I cannot find any documentation. Anyone tried and succeeded? Thanks.

  • Is anyone else still waiting for Denim?

    Still waiting here (France). Can't wait for it since I use the camera a lot and I heard that it will bring some welcome speed improvements.

  • Windows System Image Backup

    @TheTraveler: Yes, if they could be a mirror of each other (OneDrive files offline on the local machine and the local File History replicated on the cloud on OneDrive) it would be an excellent redundant solution both ways.

    By the way, anyone has the details of how the System Image, Recovery Drive, and Recovery Partition differ from each other? To add to the confusion, you can copy the local recovery partition to the recovery drive...

  • Windows System Image Backup

    @TheTraveler: System Image is a little hidden, but still there in Windows 8. In Control Panel, under File History (Control Panel\System and Security\File History) if you look at the bottom left corner of the window there is a link to the System Image Backup (I think this is what you are looking for).

    I think System Image lost lots of interest since Windows 8 installs a recovery partition (you can also create a separate recovery drive somewhere hidden in Control Panel). But I agree with you, although these options are there, they are hidden to the average user and not very clear (System Image, Recovery Drive, Recovery Partition, File History, etc.).

    My issue with OneDrive and File History is that File History will not back up OneDrive files(OneDrive is not subject to local hardware failures, but it still is vulnerable to file overwrite or deleted by mistake). I do trust the cloud, but with everything on it, I would like to have a local copy... Saving a copy of the System Image and File History on the OneDrive would be a great integration, but I think a local copy is as important.

  • Windows 9 Leaks

    They need to do something about color in general, there are way too many. And something about icons too, they desperately need a visual refresh.

  • Windows 9 Leaks

    I know this can totally be fake, but are those borderless windows? Pretty please!

  • Waiting for Windows 9 :-)

    I am really hoping for a serious refresh of the Desktop UI that is coherent with the modern interface and works seamlessly with modern apps that will replace their ancient counterparts (and a modern cmd box with better resizing and cut and paste!).

  • What should be in an ecosystem

    @bondsbw: sure, theta is a convenient thing, but as you say, probably a minor one as every service can memorize you credit card or PayPal credentials.

  • What should be in an ecosystem

    @vesuvius: I was thinking more along the consumer line, but I can see how that is compelling for developers.
