Windows 10 Preview Download

The Windows 10 Preview download is available from Microsoft http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-iso

Read their system requirements and instructions, then download the version of interest to you and burn it to DVD for installation / testing. Release is sometime next summer, so expect unfinished features here. Don’t install this on production systems unless you are a gluten for punishment.

Place the download attribute on a link…

<!-- will download as "expenses.pdf" -->
<a href="/files/adlafjlxjewfasd89asd8f.pdf" download="expenses.pdf">Download Your Expense Report</a>

…and when the user clicks the link, the download attribute appears in the save dialog instead of the garbled mess that was there before. In this case, the file will be downloaded as expenses.pdf. The download attribute also triggers a force download, something that I used to do on the server side with PHP.

Thank-you for that post!

Ubuntu (Linux) 2010 October version released

Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat” is available for download. We recommend you use a torrent as it is just out today and the main servers may be swamped, giving you slow download speeds, but peer-to-peer BitTorrent seems to be delivering good download speeds right now. This URL will take you to the Ubuntu Download page so you can select which arrangement(s) you want.

This Link explains the Ubuntu situation more as to where it comes from and how it can be free. This Link takes you to a nice simple page with a big orange button to push if you are uncomfortable making decisions about which version you need.
