A whopping 23 languages are being added, including Indonesian, Malay and, for the first time, African tongues like Swahili and Zulu.There s also a new shortcut that should make it easier for Insider Program members to give feedback.Build 14367 also marks the official debut of the clean install tool, that was uncovered on Thursday.Microsoft has also announced its intention to remove a feature from Windows 10 Mobile alongside the impending Anniversary Update.Owing to a lack of usage, development of Kids Corner is coming to and end, and the option will no longer be available as of the update this July.Insider Program members in the Fast Ring should be receiving the update soon, although there were some reported delays as a result of the development team testing out new builds internally.
First, as regular readers of my blog probably know, I am very partial to anaconda.Also, to be fair to the Mint installer I should point out that the version I am showing here was included with the release of LMDE 2 over a year ago April 2015 , while the version of anaconda is hot off the press from Fedora 24.It's comforting to old dinosaurs like me to see that there are still a few throw-backs to the old days hanging around.The 'Installation Destination' window is the most complicated - that makes sense, because getting the disk layout is the most complicated job that has to be done.In the simplest case, if you just want to install Fedora alone or alongside an existing installed system Windows or otherwise , you can just let Anaconda 'Automatically Configure Partitioning', which is the default choice.I have tried changing this selection on a UEFI system, and it didn't seem to produce any results, either good or bad.
One of Microsoft's bigger exclusives announced during its E3 presentation this week was Dead Rising 4, the latest in the zombie-surviving action series.This is a bit of a surprise, as the Dead Rising series has a history of being limited to Microsoft's platforms.This one-year exclusivity was confirmed by gaming journalist Ryan Brown, however Capcom has not said anything about Dead Rising 4 coming to other platforms, namely the PlaySation 4, after that period.The original Dead Rising was only available on the Xbox 360, until it was eventually ported to the Wii several years later.Dead Rising 2 has been the series' only entry with a multi-platform debut on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.Along with a 4-player co-op mode, the game looks like it will uphold the series' tradition of using everyday items as weapons, along with new goodies like a high-powered Exo Suit, and even the ability to take selfies with the dead.
At its I/O developers conference last month, Google announced that the Google Play app store would soon be available on its set of Chromebook laptops.Today, that plan is starting to come to fruition.As noted by Google s François Beaufort, anyone with an Asus Chromebook Flip can now access the Play Store, and the millions of Android apps within it, by switching to Chrome OS s developer channel.Beaufort says other devices will follow with the update very soon.The move to support Android apps marks a major milestone for Chromebooks.Chrome OS has often been derided for being little more than an extended web browser; being able to natively run a wide array of games and apps, many of which work offline, would seem to put Chromebooks much closer to their Windows or Mac rivals in terms of overall functionality.This is particularly appealing since many Chromebooks can be had for as low as $250 and since most cheap Windows laptops are slower by comparison .If everything works smoothly, it could make buying a new laptop much less of a burden on many people s wallets.Read the original article on Tech Insider.Here's how you can spot themBMW made the most insane driverless concept car we've ever seenNOW WATCH: Sorry Apple fans — the iPhone 7 is going to be boringLoading video...
Any probe into Microsoft Corp. s acquisition of professional social network LinkedIn Corp. is likely to focus on the tie-up s potential to leverage vast amounts of user data, the European Union s antitrust chief said Friday.The European Commission would look at whether the data purchased in the deal has a very long durability and might constitute a barrier for others, or if they can be replicated so that others stand a chance to enter the market, Margrethe Vestager said.We ve done that kind of analysis in the past and it s something we re generally paying a lot of attention to, she said in an interview in Copenhagen Friday.The Dane, who took office at the end of 2014, has signaled a willingness to delve more into how merging companies leverage the treasure trove of data at their disposal.Data was one of the key considerations in the review of Facebook Inc. s takeover of messaging service WhatsApp Inc., even though her predecessor in the end concluded there were no data-usage concerns.Vestager warned earlier this year that even though the regulator hasn t found a data competition problem yet, this doesn t mean we never will.Microsoft will acquire LinkedIn for about $26.2 billion, one of the largest technology-industry deals on record, as the maker of Windows and Office software attempts to put itself at the center of people s business lives.The deal is a way for Microsoft, which largely missed out on the consumer web boom dominated by the likes of Google and Facebook, to sprint ahead in social tools -- in this case, for professionals.When it announced the deal, Microsoft outlined a vision in which a person s LinkedIn profile resides at the middle of other pieces of their work life, connecting with Windows, Outlook, Skype, Office productivity tools like Excel and PowerPoint, and other Microsoft products.Microsoft said on June 13 its bid for LinkedIn will require regulatory approval in the EU, U.S., Canada and Brazil and that it s confident of closing the transaction before the end of the year.The company s press office had no further comment Friday.LinkedIn s analytics will help power data tools for Microsoft s Dynamics, which competes with Salesforce.com Inc. in helping companies manage relationships with their customers.Salesforce.com was a rival potential bidder for LinkedIn in the process leading up to the acquisition by Microsoft, according to people familiar with the matter.

Spencer is the man that declared Xbox One's focus on entertainment to be a poor choice, and that from now on Microsoft would be concentrating more on the "playing games" part of the console.It's fair to say that despite having a near-captive audience it's failed to capitalise on it so far.Of course, we could also see a rash of lazy upscales, but I'm choosing to be optimistic about our chances.It promises that developers who want to create an experience exclusive to either the PC or consoles will be free to do just that, but for everyone else it's all hand-holding, free love and a big friendly platform.This console generation has largely belonged to Sony and while on first impressions it may have felt like Microsoft's conference this year was a damp squib, the truth is that Microsoft's master plan is just now kicking into gear.Can Microsoft dominate the living room after the failure of Valve's Steam Machine initiative?

Discovery of serious Windows vulnerability, dubbed BadTunnel, earns researcher top bug bounty rewardA Chinese security researcher has uncovered a serious vulnerability in all versions of the Windows operating system, from Windows 95 to Windows 10, meaning users have been vulnerable for more than 20 years.This vulnerability has a massive security impact – probably the widest impact in the history of Windows, Yu is quoted as saying.It not only can be exploited through many different channels, but also exists in all Windows versions released during the past 20 years.This vulnerability is caused by a series of seemingly correct implementations, which includes a transport layer protocol, an application layer protocol, a few specific usage of application protocol by the operating system, and several protocol implementations used by firewalls and NAT devices, Yu reportedly said.According to Dark Reading, the attacker s site appears as either a file server or a local print server, and hijacks the victim s network traffic – HTTP, Windows Updates, and even Certificated Revocation List updates via Microsoft s CryptoAPI.Essentially, BadTunnel exploits a series of security weaknesses, including how Windows resolves network names and accepts responses.
But it seems the two storefronts will soon be working closer together, as it s been revealed Microsoft is planning to release more titles on Valve s platform.Speaking on the Giant Bomb livesteam, Xbox head Phil Spencer acknowledged that Steam's dearth of Microsoft games isn t causing it to lose sales.And five years later it will still be bigger again," Spencer said.Spencer didn t reveal which Microsoft games will arrive on Steam, or when to expect them, but he did say not every single release from the company will appear on both stores.There s going to be areas where we cooperate and there s going to be areas where we compete.Microsoft s upcoming Anniversary update for Windows 10 will improve some of the issues found with games built using the Universal Windows Platform UWP , such as the inability to disable V-sync and problems when using multiple GPUs.
Sea of Thieves will be coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in 2017, Microsoft and Rare have confirmed.Speaking to Kinda Funny in a recent video, Xbox Games Aaron Greenberg confirmed a rough early 2017 release window for the game.Sea of Thieves is coming out in that window, Scalebound, a lot more titles..."The game was previously slated to launch in 2016, but it's nice to have confirmation on when we can roughly expect to play Rare s latest adventure.Rare also confirmed that Sea of Thieves has no plans to support a free-to-play model after launch, a question that surfaced due to its largely online gameplay elements.From the developers of Viva Pinata, Banjo Kazooie and Kinect Sports, Sea of Thieves will have players team up to man their own pirate ship and sail the seven seas.You can check out the E3 2016 trailer below:Arrgh you excited?

Microsoft says that Wand Labs' technology and talent pool will help in strengthening its position in conversational intelligence, which is an emerging area in technology today.The tech-giant wants to combine the power and complexity of human language with advanced machine intelligence for connecting people to knowledge, information, services and in relevant and natural ways.The company believes that the power of its products including Microsoft Azure, Bing, Office 365 and Windows platform will improve and can empower developers.In an interview with Backchannel, Vishal Sharma said: "The wall on your iPhone and Android looks like MS Windows from years ago."Since it is impossible to copy or paste songs, contacts or food dishes from one app or service to another, the Wand technology tears down app walls, integrates services in chat and makes them work together so that tasks can be performed with less taps.Wand Labs founder and CEO Vishal Sharma said: I'm proud of the work my team has done and what we've already accomplished in this emerging space - and I'm delighted to be joining a company that shares our passion and enthusiasm for this new era where conversation is the central focus.
No more nasty fake "download" button ads, which is a good thing—since Google Chrome has started blocking sites that have them.It has been six months since the company formerly known as Dice DHI Group sold off Slashdot Media—the business unit that runs Slashdot and SourceForge to BIZX, LLC, a San Diego-based digital media company.The shifting nature of the software development world has made repositories such as GitHub a go-to for open-source projects of all sorts, while the focus on application downloads has shifted heavily toward the mobile world.Last May, the development community for the GIMP image manipulation tool found that SourceForge had closed down the inactive SourceForge account for the site and had set up a mirror of GIMP for Windows under the control of SourceForge editors.The GIMP code in the "mirror" account was wrapped with a DevShare installer.But the company put a staff member full time on the job of hunting down deceptive download button ads and blacklisting the advertisers behind them.

Microsoft is obviously keen to push its own Windows Store as hard as possible, but when it comes to games, the company is planning to put future titles on Steam.This is according to Phil Spencer, head of Xbox at Microsoft and more broadly seen as head of gaming within the company , who discussed the matter in a lengthy interview with Giant Bomb at E3."It definitely could," Spencer replied, before observing that Steam is a major force in Windows gaming and is growing massively still.He seemed rather cagey concerning whether this would be said blockbuster AAA releases, mind, and was careful to point out that Microsoft needs to do some work on its own, and push its own store.Forza 6 Apex has apparently done very well with the Windows Store, although Quantum Break pictured above didn't grab as much interest from the gaming public.In short, when it comes to PC gaming, it seems Steam is just too big a force to be ignored for Microsoft, and so we should be expecting at least more Redmond games to appear on Valve's store – although evidently not all of them.
The release platforms for Capcom zombie game Dead Rising 4 have now been confirmed, with additional confirmation that the game will for the first time in the series be a 'timed', or fixed-period, Microsoft exclusive, rather than an outright exclusive.Journalist Ryan Brown revealed on Twitter that a Capcom representative told him that the exclusivity deal is for one year only rather than outright exclusivity – as has been the case with two of the three previous Dead Rising games.There was speculation before and after the game's announcement that it would also be coming to PS4 and PC, beyond the Windows 10 store.While not confirmed at this point, the timed exclusivity deal certainly opens up the possibility of that happening.The original Dead Rising was an Xbox 360 exclusive, and the third a launch title for the Xbox One.Dead Rising 4 sees the return of the original game's hero Frank West a famous war photographer, don't you know and its Willamette, Colorado setting.
Credit: AppleWhile big updates like iOS 10 and massive rethinks like watchOS 3 might have commanded the lion s share of attention during Apple s WWDC keynote and the ensuing aftermath of discussion and Zapruder-level dissection, it s worthwhile to pause for a moment and consider the state of Apple s most venerable platform, the Mac.No longer burdened by its increasingly dated X-laden moniker, the rebranded macOS got a major addition in the form of Siri, as well as some more minor improvements sprinkled throughout the OS.Two roads diverged in a yellow woodGiven the rapid success of iOS in the last almost decade, more than a few folks were worried that Apple might decide to shift the Mac towards a stronger resemblance to its mobile sibling.That spurred fears of forced convergence among Mac fans, who didn t want the peanut butter of iOS infesting the chocolate of their Mac experience.It s in the same vein of macOS handling multiple windows and many apps with aplomb.On the other hand, reports from the initial beta of macOS Sierra also suggest that Apple has eliminated Gatekeeper s run apps from any source security setting, now strongly nudging developers towards either being registered with Apple or distributing through the store.
