Windows 10 May 2019 update blocked for anyone using USB or SD storage | Ars Technica
While it's not officially out yet, the Windows 10 May 2019 update is available to Windows Insiders on the Release Preview distribution channel (and also to MSDN subscribers). So anyone who wants to get a head start on the next major iteration of Windows 10 can do so right now—unless they have USB storage connected to their PC.#technology #computing #windows #update
How to Uninstall Windows 10 Updates When the PC Is Not Booting Up | MakeTechEasier
Windows 10 updates itself automatically. For the most part, the updates won’t cause any problems. However, from time to time the update may contain bugs that can make your system unbootable. Generally, in those situations, you are forced to use the System Restore tool. However, the System Restore feature is disabled by default. Unless you manually enable the feature, there is no way you can restore the system to a known good state.#technology #computing #windows

A lightweight approach to removing Google web service dependency
ungoogled-chromium is Google Chromium, sans dependency on Google web services. It also features some tweaks to enhance privacy, control, and transparency (almost all of which require manual activation or enabling).
ungoogled-chromium retains the default Chromium experience as closely as possible. Unlike other Chromium forks that have their own visions of a web browser, ungoogled-chromium is essentially a drop-in replacement for Chromium.
ungoogled-chromium is available in several software repositories:
Arch Linux: Available in AUR as ungoogled-chromium
NOTE: ungoogled-chromium-bin is not officially part of ungoogled-chromium. Please submit all issues to the maintainer of the PKGBUILD.
Gentoo Linux: ::chaoslab overlay maintains an unofficial ungoogled-chromium ebuild.
GNU Guix: Available as ungoogled-chromium.
macOS cask: Available as eloston-chromium

Windows 10 May 2019 Update release date, news and features | TechRadar
The Windows 10 May 2019 Update will be the first major update for Microsoft's constantly-evolving Windows 10 operating system this year.#technology #computing #windows
Also known as Windows 10 version 1903 or 19H1, the Windows 10 May 2019 Update is yet another part of Microsoft’s plan of releasing major free tentpole updates that bring new features, tools and apps to Windows 10.
Hé bien, contrairement à ce qui a été prétendu récemment, Windows n'est pas un virus.
- Certes, comme un virus, il se répand rapidement.
- Certes, il ralentit le système en utilisant ses ressources.
- Certes, il lui arrive de planter votre disque dur.
- Certes, en ralentissant le système, il oblige les utilisateurs à acheter des machines plus puissantes.
- Mais la grosse différence, c'est qu'un virus est gratuit, mis à jour régulièrement, et qu'il s'améliore en vieillissant!

Windows 10 is the same (evolved) code base as the code base of Windows 8.x, 7, Vista, XP, 2000, and NT, where each generation saw significant refactoring, and added substantial new features, improved performance and hardware support as well as security, all while maintaining a very high degree of backward compatibility.
Most of the kernel (ntoskrnl.exe) is written in the C programming language. You can find leaked copies of the Windows Research Kernel even on Github and see for yourself: although quite dated and largely incomplete, this code should give significant insights.
See for example the source code that implements the familiar Registry, a kernel component known internally as the configuration manager, “Cm”, in wrk-v1.2/base/ntos/config.
Most of what runs in kernel mode is also written in the C programming language (most file systems, networking, most drivers…) with some C++ here and there.
As you go up the stack towards user mode, and towards more recent developments, you’ll find somewhat less C and somewhat more C++.
As a side note, what most people don’t realize is the sheer size of Windows: this is a gigantic project of truly epic proportions.
The full source tree with all the code, test code and everything that together constitutes the “Windows source code” is more than a half terabyte in size, in more than 4 million files. You can spend a year (seriously) just drilling down the source tree, more than a half million folders containing the code for every component making up the OS workstation and server products and all their editions, tools, and associated developement kits, and see what’s in there, read the file names and try to figure out what does what. It would take a life (or two) to read it all.
Below is a screenshot which may or may not depict statistics about a full Windows enlistment (source code, test files, build tools, everything)
One one occasion, I left a Git branch stall for a few weeks and, when I got back to it, it was behind by almost 60,000 commits. I think one can argue that a single person cannot possibly read all the code that is added to Windows every day, let alone read what was written during the past thirty years!
Back to our topic, if you look at a Windows 10 “DVD” and consider what programming languages were used to create everything that’s on that disk, my guess is that 98% of it would be C and C++, with C getting the lion’s share.
The .NET BCL and other managed libraries & frameworks that ship inbox are typically written in C#, but they only represent tiny drops in a giant sea of C code with a few islands of C++. They also come from a different division (the developper’s division, DevDiv) and their code is not part of the Windows source tree.
