People can choose which sites to put in top tabs, place a custom company logo and integrate them with Microsoft Search and Office 365. The other feature is Collections which are designed for users to collect text, images, data from the internet in the easiest possible way.

Linus Kernel In Windows 10Many fans of Microsoft are happy to know that the tech giant integrates Linux in Windows 10. It is a big change as it is for the first time the Linus kernel has been included as a part of Windows. Jack Hammons, Microsoft program manager, explains:
“Beginning with Windows Insiders builds this Summer, we will include an in-house custom-built Linux kernel to underpin the newest version of the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). The kernel itself will initially be based on version 4.19, the latest long-term stable release of Linux. The kernel will be rebased at the designation of new long-term stable releases to ensure that the WSL kernel always has the latest Linux goodness.”Subscribe to The Coin Shark news in Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/coinshark/
