Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen died from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma on Monday afternoon.

Allen's Vulcan Inc. announced that he died in Seattle at 65 years old.
Allen's sister, Jody, said he was "a remarkable individual on every level."

"While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much-loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend. Paul's family and friends were blessed to experience his wit, warmth, his generosity and deep concern," she said in a statement. "For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends. At this time of loss and grief for us – and so many others – we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day."

Windows 10 April 2018 Update Released

Microsoft, after a brief delay, have finally released the latest version of Windows 10 to those outside of the Insiders program and you can download it today!

Other than Timeline, which I have disabled myself, there isn't really anything to jump around about this time around but there has been another good layer of polish applied to many areas of the operating system, culminating with not calling it the Spring Creators Update, which is good because I wasn't really feeling like there was anything focused particularly towards creators.

If that doesn't summarise things perfectly for you, there is a detailed overview below.

It isn't quite on Windows Update yet, at least not for all users, but you can jump that queue.

Windows 10 Build 17133.1 released to the Insider fast ring

  • 2,661

Microsoft have released a new build for Insiders this evening and as we approach the end of initial development, the number of changes are slim and the known major issues are null.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain devices with BitLocker enabled unexpectedly booting into BitLocker recovery in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to change the display resolution when there were 4 or more monitors connected, due to the confirmation prompt hanging when you selected “Keep changes”.
  • We fixed an issue where clicking suggested search terms when typing in the Microsoft Edge URL bar didn’t do anything.
That is not to say there aren't minor issues, personally I still have 2 entries for recovery under disk management and the command prompt still has a registered trademark of 2017, my Logitech G933 headset still doesn't like to install the Logitech supplied drivers - but if that is the worst things I can find, then I can live with it!

There is wide speculation that this is the RTM build, although that is of course a dated term and development is always continuing, but now the next major features will come as part of the Redstone 5 testing which is due to ramp up.

If it is the final release build of the Spring Creators update, expect it to drop into the slow ring and finally the release preview ring, although its very likely it will see a cumulative update or two before its general release on April 10th.

NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready 391.35 Drivers

Despite having released drivers for Sea of Thieves only a week ago, NVIDIA has released another set of drivers focused on making improvements to Far Cry 5. The older release was 391.24 released on the 20th March.

While the headline is all about providing the optimal gaming experience for Far Cry 5, it does have the following other fixes:
  • GeForce 3D Profile Manager tool can't import profiles. [2076480]
  • [GeForce Experience]: Memory leak occurs leading to poor game performance when using NVIDIA Freestyle. [2068039]
  • [NVIDIA Control Panel][SLI][Diablo III]: With V-Sync on and SLI enabled, the game freezes after switching windows (ALT+TAB) a few times. [1951584]
  • [Notebook]: The driver may fail to initialize the GPU. [200354056]
Amazingly it is a more security focused update once you get past the gaming fluff:

Worth downloading then, even if you don't game!
