Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7, one of the company's most successful products, starting Tuesday.  That means Microsoft will no longer patch Windows 7 bugs or offer technical assistance for the OS. And it also means that you should not be running Windows 7 anymore, period.  "Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available," the company wrote in a note to user...

It’s official: Microsoft Edge is coming to Linux! News that a Linux port of the Chromium-based Edge browser is on the way isn’t too much of surprise given that Microsoft developers have teased the possibility several times before. They’ve previously gone on record as saying that Edge for Linux is “something we’d like to do” and something that would happen “eventually”.

Microsoft has unveiled two folding devices, with dual touch screens, which it says will create a new category in mobile computing.

Microsoft is renaming its Office Online web apps to just simply Office. The software maker is using the new terminology “relatively soon” after it finalizes all of the changes to its marketing and technical content. “Because our offerings have evolved to provide access to apps on more than one platform, it no longer makes sense to use any platform-specific sub-brands,” explains Bill Doll, senior product marketing officer at Microsoft. Microsoft is also discontinuing the use of “Word Online” o...

Ever since Microsoft launched the first version of Windows 10, the company chased market share at the expense of user experience. Many PC owners found their systems upgraded to Windows 10 out of the blue, as Microsoft would force Windows 10 downloads and installs on users running older versions of Windows. This was easily the worst thing about the Windows 10 upgrade, at least until users discovered all the strange privacy-infringing features that were also buried in early versions of Windows 10....
