    They should concentrate on getting 2D icons working first

    Chrome suddenly stop working. Whether it got to do with 2017-05 cumulative update or not, I don't know, but it stopped working after it being installed. The error that I've got is this

    DNS address could not be found.
    ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

    I've already tried many suggestion from the net (flush dns from the browser, pc, quic thing, etc) and nothing worked. I think it is more of Chrome problem than Windows since other browser works perfectly and all the apps/programs that need internet connection works like normal. I've also tried installing Canary, which is separate installation from Chrome, and it also experiencing the same error.

    I want to uninstall cumulative update, but apparently you can't uninstall it, thus I don't know whether the cumulative update are the thing that triggered it or Chrome just decided to quit on me.

    Chromium based browser do work (like Vivaldi).

    iTunes potentially coming to Xbox I wonder? That would certainly be interesting.

    2 additional flavors of Linux will be coming to Windows.

    http://techreport.com/news/31899/three-flavors-of-linux-are-coming-to-windows-store

    You'll have the options of installing a Fedora and SUSE in addition to Ubuntu. Will also be able to install them to a different drive than C:.

    Also interesting is that for any educational purchasers of Windows-S (the target market for said Windows), as long as the purchaser demonstrates a need for a full version of Windows, they will be able to upgrade for free.

    So, only people that aren't involved in education in anyway will have to pay a 50 USD upgrade fee.

    I see a load of marketing/designer claptrap & nothing actually saying that they are going to bring anything to Win10.
    But if they actually are going to bring some proper 3D GUI stuff that'd be great :smile2:

    Edit: ok so https://techcrunch.com/2017/05/11/m...t-design-its-take-on-googles-material-design/
    https://arstechnica.com/information...fficially-the-microsoft-fluent-design-system/
    http://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-shows-fluent-design-coming-edge-fall-creators-update

    It is new version of Metro with the return of Glass style blurry transparency, animation & parallax which is cool by me :)

    After trying Vivaldi, I tried Chrome portable, and it works. The similarity between both is that they are 32bit, thus I've downloaded 32bit version of Chrome and yes, it worked. So either something is wrong with 64bit version of Chrome or it is just an unlucky combination of Windows 10 (with the latest update) + Chrome + my PC.
    Anyway, I'm really happy that Chrome is working again. When Chrome was broken, I've used various browser and it make me took notice on how good Chrome is.

    I tried several Linux versions, but never SUSE or Fedora, so that would be a first.

    I notice since about 4 days, MS have fixed the 'download' directory speed issue. I think I've mentioned this before, SSD ~300 items in download directory, takes > 2 minutes to display the directory's contents in order, now its near instant like it should be

    Yes I've been similarly flummoxed by time to display Downloads directory despite it being on SSD.
    Has been notably faster just recently but I also cleared out the directory recently so figured it was just that.

    There was a new Cumulative update.
    No obvious link in the patch notes though https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4020102/windows-10-update-kb4020102

    Edit: anyone else noticed Calculator has gained blurry transparency?
    I guess thats the nuGlass they were talking about.

    Most common consumer actions under right-click with more "advanced" under More?

    But there are so few actions a submenu seems unnecessary. And slows me down. And some users simply cannot imagine that Run as Admin is in a submenu.

    Those users who can't imagine Run as Admin could be in a submenu probably shouldn't be using Run as Admin in the first place ;-)
