Recently I’ve switched my Internet provider. The new one delivers Internet trough optic fiber to the last mile and the speed should be 100MBit/s. Speed tests over a cable confirm the speed is very close to 100 MBit/s. I however noticed some lags and slowness on my laptop when using WiFi which was not expected. Speedtest.netshowed this:
The results are far away from what I would expect! Again, when attached via LAN cable – everything is fine.
Recently a Prestigio smartbook had to be reinstalled with latest Windows 10 1803. This laptop came with 32 bit Windows but had 64bit CPU. So I [wrongly] assumed 64-bit Windows would work. That was not the case!
I’d made 64-bit Windows 10 installation USB stick using Rufus (MBR:UEFI). But when booting I’ve received an error:
[FAIL] Could not locate '/efi/boot/bootia32.efi':  Not Found
Often developers and related OPs need to test stuff on Linux (web, cli, .NET Core etc.). The typical approach was to spin up a Virtual machine (VM), install and configure a Linux distro and play with it.
Main Cons include: you need a hyper-visor software, enough RAM, fast hard drive, to fight with basic operations like cope-paste text and files between machines etc.
Well, good news! As of the Anniversary Update Windows 10 supports the so called “Windows Subsystem for Linux” (WSL). It allows you to run natively* most of the non GUI Linux stuff**on Windows without the overhead of a virtual machine.
Windows 10 Creators Update comes with a cool new feature called “Night Light“. It allows you to warmer the colors of your monitors during dark hours (or in a dark room) so your eyes feel more comfortable (programmers will appreciate it much!). It supportsf.lux‘s basic functionallity, but now it is a built in Windows 10 feature. Great!
