Visual Studio Code with LaTeX – Follow-up

I posted an article about using Visual Studio Code with LaTeX earlier this year and I wanted to do a follow-up with some of the additional extensions that I have been utilizing, as well as some of the extra configuration items that I have been using as I have made this environment my primary LaTeX editor.

Visual Studio Code with LaTeX

LaTeX is a powerful typesetting language that has been used for decades by people looking to create documents without needing to worry about the look of it. I have been using it for the last few years for important documents, and I wanted to integrate it with my favourite editor prior to undertaking a large project using it.

Windows 7 End of Life

I liked Windows 7 a lot, it was a great Operating System that I deployed and supported very early in my IT career. An end of an era, but it had to happen.

Windows XP is Finally Dead

It had a good run, but the time has finally run out on Windows XP and all of it's variants. It was a great OS (eventually), but ultimately it has been succeeded by more modern Operating Systems and better practices.

WSL Changes in Windows 10 1809

I found a really good blog article about the changes that were made to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) in the Windows 10 1809 update (or whatever it will be called when they eventually release it again) on the Windows Command Line Blog.

One Windows Kernel

The Windows Kernel Internals team posted a very interesting article about the architecture of the Windows Kernel and on it's ability to scale up from embedded IoT devices to servers running the Azure Datacenters.

Lenovo Miix 630

I wanted to do a follow up my previous post about Windows on ARM since I have had some recent hands-on experience with this platform. I was able to obtain a Lenovo Miix 630 through a contract that I am working on and I have been using it in a daily basis for the last 2 months. I had wanted to give this platform a fair chance, and here is what I found out.

Windows NT 3.51 on Hyper-V

I ran into a few issues with running this very old Operating System as a Virtual Machine on Hyper-V a few days ago. I needed to do this for a personal project that I am working on, one that I have been thinking about doing for a while now. Since I ran into a few issues with getting this to work correctly, I thought I should share my findings and write a quick guide on how to get Windows NT 3.51 Server and Windows NT 3.51 Workstation running on Hyper-V.

Windows on ARM

I have been thinking about this topic for a long time and I was trying to think of what I really wanted to say. One of things that really bothers me with technology (and I guess other parts of life as well), is that people are not always well informed on what is going on. I have been working in IT for almost a decade and the amount of false information and misconceptions that I hear on an almost nearly basis is absolutely maddening. I have heard so much incorrect information on Windows, Linux, Networking, the Cloud and Security and I have probably spent more time correcting people instead of actually fixing things or implementing new solutions for them. I have no problem in explaining how these things work to people, but unfortunately I cannot understand things for people.
