Microsoft has published a new roadmap website for business and enterprise customers detailing features coming to Windows 10. This roadmap not only shows features coming to PCs, but to HoloLens, IoT, Surface Hub, Windows 10 Mobile, and industry devices like kiosks, ATMs, POS devices.
Check it out at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/WindowsForBusiness/windows-roadmap
I’d also encourage taking a look at the Microsoft Edge Platform Status at https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/to learn more about features coming to Microsoft Edge.

I tend to look forward to January 1st each year, as this is my MVP Award renewal date. Woke up this morning and received the following message.
Thank you Microsoft, thank you to my wonderful MVP lead, and thanks to all of you. My goal this year is to try to do more blogging, and with Windows 10, Windows Server v.Next, and more on the way, that should be a relatively easy goal to achieve.
Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Technical Preview and Preview for Enterprise this week. If you’re like me and you use a mix of Macs and PCs, you may decide to run the Technical Preview using some sort of virtualization software. In my case, I was trying to install the preview with Parallels Desktop 10.
During the install, it was asking for drivers before the install could continue. Turns out the fix for this issue is a very simple one. Instead of using a SATA DVD drive in the VM, change the DVD drive to use and IDE drive, as illustrated below.
