|Microsoft shows the power of its Pen with a new Whiteboard app and other upgrades|

Microsoft wants you to use Windows 10's inking talents in your everyday work life, and that's why it's offering two new features: a custom collection of pens that will roam with you from device to device, and coming later, the Whiteboard collaborative app.
Both build upon new inking capabilities Microsoft has incrementally added to its hardware and its Windows OS, as well as Office. One of the features of the new Surface Pro (2017), for example, is a more sensitive Surface Pen with tilt capabilities and an almost unnoticeable pen latency, to make digital ink feel smooth and seamless.
Beginning in June, Microsoft will allow Office 365 subscribers to “save” a gallery of pen inks that will roam across devices as well as the Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Word apps. Though the pens are being saved in Office, and not within Windows, the saved ink gallery is consistent with Microsoft’s upcoming , which builds upon shared Windows experiences across devices.

|Microsoft plots changes to Windows 10's release lingo to match Office 365|

Microsoft will change the nomenclature of its Windows 10 release model in September, dropping terms used since the operating system’s debut and substituting names that sync with Office 365.
In an online Q&A Thursday about “Windows as a service,” Microsoft’s concept of an ever-evolving, ever-updating OS, Michael Niehaus, a director of product marketing on the Windows 10 team, answered a question about the new terminology.
“New Windows 10 releases in the Semi-Annual Channel
are initially to be used for pilot deployments,” [emphasis added
]. “After about four months, we’ll declare that the release is ready for broad deployment.”
|How upgrading from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro could cost you|

There’s plenty about that’s not fully understood, not the least of which is its built-in upgrade path to Windows 10 Pro. Which Windows 10 S device you buy and where you buy it, however, will decide whether you’ll pay a $49 fee for the the upgrade—or have Microsoft pay you with a year’s subscription to Office 365.
With most Windows 10 S devices reserved for closely managed classrooms, there's arguably only one Windows 10 S device where the transition from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro becomes an important decision: Microsoft's Surface Laptop, designed for college students. But as hardware vendors start shipping more laptops with Windows S installed, more users will have to consider how they handle this upgrade path. We'll explain what we know so far.
|Microsoft commits to twice yearly updates to Windows 10, Office 365|

Microsoft is offering IT pros on when they can expect major feature updates for Windows 10, Office 365's client applications, and System Center Configuration Manager.
Office and Windows are slated to receive two major patches per year, one in March and the other in September. SCCM will be updated in time with those releases to facilitate deployments. That means the next major update to Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 3, is due out in September.
On top of that, Microsoft confirmed that each feature release of Windows 10 will be supported for 18 months after it is first made generally available.
|Microsoft will cut services to standalone Office users so they’ll subscribe to Office 365|

When Microsoft launched Office 365 in 2010, that customers were asking to move to the cloud. Beginning in 2020, some Office customers will need to buy Office 365 to do so.
In an to Microsoft’s Office 365 system requirements released on Thursday, Microsoft said that consumers who have already purchased “perpetual”—i.e., standalone—versions of Office, such as Office 2010, Office 2013, and Office 2016, would be cut off from accessing the business versions of OneDrive and Skype after mainstream support expires. Those who have purchases those Office suites will be allowed to connect until Oct. 13, 2020—the day mainstream support ends for Office 2016, and the day the new support policy kicks in.
|Microsoft commits to a permament schedule for new Windows 10, Office updates|

Microsoft said Thursday it will commit to a strict schedule for Windows and Office feature updates: every September and March. It's a concession to IT administrators that will ripple down to all users.
The company said it would hew to a “predictable” twice-per-year schedule for both platforms, though there’s still a little wiggle room: Microsoft didn’t specify exact dates within those months. As per the new schedule, the next Windows update, code-named Redstone 3, will be released in September.
Technically, Windows 10, Office 365 ProPlus, and Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager are all being aligned on the same schedule. That actually means fewer releases for the basic enterprise version of Office and Office 365 ProPlus, which typically get new feature updates three times per year. Microsoft said it would extend ProPlus support, though, from 12 to 18 months. (The ProPlus subscription includes the standard Office apps like Word and PowerPoint, but excludes some Office services like SharePoint, Yammer, Skype, and Teams.) Consumers who subscribe to Office 365, however, will continue to receive updates more frequently.
