No More Versions for Windows

So recently Microsoft made it public news that they are not going to be creating another full version of Windows past Windows 10.  They are instead going take a “progressive enhancement” approach where they will continually improve upon what the new OS adding new features and fixing bugs along the way.  I actually think this is going to be a good move on Microsoft’s part and I look forward to seeing how they work this into their business as a whole.

Windows 10 will be the last version of the operating system to be numbered, says Microsoft executive.

GitHub Large File Storage Extension

GitHub has started the early phases of rolling out a solution for git repositories that contain large files.  It looks pretty interesting and takes git one step closer to being a more attractive solution for companies that track huge files or even binaries that can’t be diff’d.  This would be especially useful for game assets.   I look forward to keeping track of the progress!

Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server like GitHub.com or GitHub Enterprise.
