General Discussion / Popular Science reveals the "Deep Web".

Interesting short article defining the web underworld, which evidently, is far vaster that the surface web of Google, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, etc.

General Discussion / Re: Anyone want to discuss Windows 10 Technical Preview

Works for me...
In your experience, what features do you really like and see as an advance over what Windows 7/8 offered.  Here are some of my impressions.

I have been playing with Spartan for a couple of days and find the web note feature very useful, as well as the integration of the snipping tool.The user interface is not customizable at this time, so the look is "spartan". I have Win 10 installed on an old sony vaio laptop 32bit and everything runs quicker it seems.

In addition I have explored the music preview app and find the ability to play music from my one drive very handy. Hoping for a similar option for video preview app.  The photos app is also integrated with one drive. This integration makes these files available where
 
Everyone I have talked to likes the multiple desktops, I am reserving opinion until I see how they develop in future releases. The notification center seems in my opinion a step forward as does the integration of apps with desktop.

I have office 365 installed and it works beautifully.....hard to beat a TB of cloud storage and 5 installs with each getting their own one drive  1TB account.  In my opinion best bargain around for $99 a year.

more later

Hello Tom,


I have installed Windows 10 Technical Preview on a virtual machine but have not used it extensively.  I'm interested in sharing my impressions with others and can add such a forum.  However, I suggest that we use this existing bulletin board for that discussion.  Doing so will give the discussion greater visibility and hopefully more reader interaction.

General Discussion / Anyone want to discuss Windows 10 Technical Preview
« Last post by Cayucostom on April 01, 2015, 09:28:19 AM »
I have been a member of the insider program and installing the beta releases of Windows 10 as they arrive.  I am wondering if anyone wants to share insights and reactions? Maybe someone could setup a forum where this could take place if there is enough interest.  Or I can be reached via email at tomeckle@gmail.com
