    A new Windows Secrets FAQ and a Microsoft reorg




    FIELD NOTES

    A new Windows Secrets FAQ and a Microsoft reorg


    By Tracey Capen

    Better late than never, we've finally put up a page for frequently asked questions about Windows Secrets subscriptions. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is putting his stamp on Microsoft, most recently with a major reorganization of its engineers; plus, data security and a good story about computer code.

    The full text of this column is posted at WindowsSecrets.com/field-notes/a-new-windows-secrets-faq-and-a-microsoft-reorg/ (opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    The Ford article on coding was also mentioned as a "best read" by the BBC last weekend. It is a long essay, but definitely fun, especially if you, like the exec trying to supervise the MitTB, have a vague familiarity with the vocabulary but no deep understanding of coding.

    Anyway, I second Tracey's recommendation: it's a great fun read and when the exec finally nails the MitTB and the new CTO down to actual work toward the end, you'll feel like cheering aloud.

    Regarding "Ask different specialists, get different answers," last weeks "Ways to encrypt sensitive data in Windows" by Lincoln Spector should have been included. IMHO

    Thanks for passing along the Paul Ford article. It was very articulate and the Web version was cleverly enhanced.
