I saw that

I still get zdnet updates in email. Sent that to some friends. Starting to get nasty? Or is there something pressing about the new CPU's that requires anything more than adding name update into the software of earlier systems?

There was some Intel compiler years ago

That app+OS builders would use to "accelerate" this app or OS. I wonder if MSFT is using 6th gen only features and this means that there are dragons (issues) they want to not address. (Yup.)

windows vs linux computers

a windows computer with same firefox goes to a front page. The linux computer and it's firefox goes to that sign in page. Even using Agent swapping for refer line it goes there, even after cookies killed. Looks like Microsoft may be blocking any Linux computers unless they sign in. I may check with a USB flashdrive version I have, see if I get the same.
