Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14361 Released (betanews.com) 135

An anonymous reader writes from a report via BetaNews: Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar announced in a blog post that they are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14361 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This new release includes new features, some improvements to existing features, and various bug fixes that the company hopes to iron out before the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. A LastPass extension for the Microsoft Edge browser, and Hyper-V Container, which will let you use Docker natively on Windows 10, has been added. A series of improvements have been made to Windows Ink, and the Settings app, which includes changes to the colors so it's more obvious where you are. The Blu-ray icon and Network Quick Action icon have also been updated. You can read the full list of improvements and fixes for PC here.

      Wake me up when Windows 10 Ultimate Final Gold Infinity comes out

      Wake me up when it's safe to turn updates back on for Windows 7.

    A bunch of new icons and some changes to the settings dialogs. I guess that's called innovation nowadays.

    I'm glad I'm still using Windows 7 for gaming and Linux for everything else.

    Windows 10 is just another way to say 'Herpes'.

  • Er...thanks for posting the release notes? (What a lot of boring cruft.)

  • I gave up beta testing for Microsoft years ago.

    Does this docker image allow for micro instances of both linux and windows or strictly windows?

    This matters to me as I have a ridiculously overpowered workstation (Thank you MS/FB for selling all your 2011 v2s for pennies) that would be able to run Docker machines without breaking a sweat. I wouldn't bother with Windows Images, but Linux images would be awesome.
  • No ad blocker for edge yet, then? The web experience without one is fucking terrible.
    • Yes! Edge HAS Adblock Plus, starting with Insider Build 14342. Testing it in Virtual Box, working as advertised. Not quite enough for me to switch from Chrome, but this puts Edge ahead of mobile Safari or mobile Chrome, which to my knowledge still do not support extensions (if Google permits AdBlocking extensions on Android, I'd like to know about it).

  • According to the quickstart guide [microsoft.com] the Windows "nanoserver" docker image is 817MB. The Alpine Linux image is 5MB. Which is more "nano"?
  • I haven't been particularly attentive to my computer lately and I 've been running these builds, and Slashdot got me this info before I got it from the Feedback Hub just because I happened to check Slashdot on my Android phone. Steam hasn't been displaying web pages on recent builds, but I haven't seen much noise about it so that might be a misconfiguration unique to me. Microsoft's determined to make Windows even more of a black box they don't want people to see inside, which will be just fantastic for mal

    "The Blu-ray icon and Network Quick Action icon have also been updated"

    Updated icons? Good lord, will this astounding innovation ever stop?

    • It's every bit as innovative as a rose gold watch band from Apple. The future is here. Flying cars can't be far behind.
  • Have they made it so i can change the color of the taskbar to any color i want? (Without installing Classic Shell.) More importantly, have they made it so i can change the text color in the taskbar, and more importantly the systray? Really it would be nice if they just enabled all of the settings that you _used_ to be able to set via the .theme files.

    I was able to change the color of my taskbar to a nice light grey with Classic Shell and by switching to the AeroLite theme i was able to get black text in t
    • The color of the Taskbar can be changed, but it shares that color with other Windows elements. I've submitted feedback for more granular control.
      • by Daetrin ( 576516 )
        Good point! It _is_ possible to change it, but as you said it's linked to other elements that i don't necessarily want to be the same color as the taskbar, and the choice of colors they give you is _very_ limited. Even if i were willing to have the title bars be the same light grey that color wasn't an option without resorting to a 3rd party program.
  • The steady work on Hyper-V seems impressive with each release... M$ seems to be giving this product a lot of love, but does M$ permit you to run another M$ OS in it, or am I right they expect you to buy another license?

    It kinda feels like a rip to pay full-price for a license for an OS that's only gonna run in a virtual machine. Running as a guest, you'll never realize the full benefits of many of the OS' features (e.g., Direct X). So, why pay full price?

    Windows 7 Pro gave you a free licensed copy of XP,

      Windows 7 Pro gave you a free licensed copy of XP, back when XP was still a supported OS. Apple let's you run as many instances of virtualized OS X as you like (so long as your host is Apple hardware, if you're reading the fine print). Linux, of course, is free. But having a virtualized M$ OS is just convenient to have, for testing, rolling back an undo drive, true virtual workspaces, all sorts of stuff. If M$ packaged a canned version of 10 with Hyper-V, that could get interesting.

      What virtualisation system is used to run OSX VMs?

      • OS X El Capitan builds and runs [virtualbox.org] as a guest under Virtual Box, although the "additions" don't work and you don't get sound (I've tried it, it works).

        OS X as a guest is also fully supported by commercial products like Parallels Desktop 11 and VMware Fusion (for Mac).

    • by armanox ( 826486 )

      If you have the licenses you can run Windows VMs (including virtualized copies of appropriately licensed physical machine), and you can run some Linux VM (Ubuntu, Red Hat, Cent, and SuSE). Other operating systems (non-blessed Linux versions, OS X, BSD Unix, Haiku, Solaris, IllumnOS, etc) generally do not work at all.

  • Yep, I am sure there were some that started to bail water when the Titanic hit 10%... How did that work out???
