Do you know that with this update, you can open Android apps in Windows through Your Phone app ? You can even pin your favourite apps to the Task Bar for easy access. As you see below, those apps will open as separate windows like they do in Android

Very good @Jason I think 2H2 is now available to some users. The major feature updates is not rolled to all users. Some say they are testing it for compatibility issues. You can get it if you download the ISO from Microsoft website. Make sure it won't break your PC.

Test this in a virtual machine first. Once you commit to a new system, rolling back is not a simple affair unless you have a proven and trusted image that automates this process.

If you decide your do not like the potential replacement after testing and using it as the main system, you lost nothing.

> @phenomlab Test this in a virtual machine first.

What is the minimum RAM requirement ? Which one do you recommend ? VirtualBox or VMware ? The requirement is for a moderately powerful machine.

Windows 10 _Device Manager_ no longer serves you drivers from the internet. You need to have it locally to install it through the _Device Manager_. Earlier, people could simply download and install missing drivers from the internet through the Device Manager..

@Abhi as far as I know, virtualbox doesn't extend into products like cloudmin for example, so you'd need VMWare or XEN - neither of which are free or cheap. In terms of RAM, as much as you can get into the server, which of course needs to be a physical machine capable or visualisation. The amount of RAM you need really depends on how you intend to sell it.

Typically, if you have more then one physical host, 256Gb is a starting point, arguably more.

@phenomlab I meant to ask for running Windows 10 in a virtual machine in Linux. For home use. Thanks.

@Abhi yes, that's absolutely fine. It'll work, but depending on what version of Linux you run, you may run into some issues with choppy sound. VMware Player doesn't have this issue from what I recall.

@Abhi I will test it and update you. I am using Windows 7 in it and it lags badly. I don't know what incorrect settings i have set.
