Microsoft to use several different names for Windows 10

Microsoft to use several different names for Windows 10

A glimpse of what LinkedIn's app for Windows 10 looks like.

This is without a doubt, this could only cause more confusion among users, especially because in some parts of the world, like the southern hemisphere, the Redstone 3 update would see daylight during the spring.

Microsoft is delivering on its plan to bring two updates per year to Windows Server and the company has revealed the first-ever Insider build of the operating system. The new desktop app promises users "a richer, more engaging, and connected LinkedIn experience" - but there's no love for Windows phone users, whose options to connect to Microsoft's professional networking platform will soon become far more limited.

In practice, the app offers little more content than the LinkedIn website though as it's using web wrapper technology.

What Can An Activist Do For P&G?
Shareholders are frustrated with the direction of this "very slow-moving" company, said Ali Dibadj, an analyst at Sanford C. Peltz may not have all the answers to Procter & Gamble's troubles, but a fresh look on the board is warranted.

Microsoft states that "Each Windows 10 feature update will be serviced with quality updates for 18 months from the date of the feature update release".

The app, which will be rolled out gradually until the end of the month to the Windows 10 population is LinkedIn's first application for Windows 10. Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5 - without virtualization rights - already are available from Microsoft Cloud Solution Providers, as well as through Enterprise Agreements.

The list of supported languages includes English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese (simplified), Arabic, Danish, Italian, Dutch, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Turkish, Swedish, Chinese (traditional), Czech, Indonesian, Thai, Malay, and Romanian.

Microsoft acquired LinkedIn for more than $26 billion dollars previous year and has slowly been working on integrating the professional social media network into its products and services. More usefully, the app also integrates its notifications into the Windows 10 Action Center, including "new messages, insights on who's viewed your profile, trending news in your industry and other timely highlights on your professional network".
