The story of Windows 10 from inside Microsoft
It's been a big week for computing with the arrival of Windows 10. I've long been a Mac user, and will be for a long time to come, but I have to say this release of Windows has me intrigued. I'm interested to see how it does and whether it can bring any traction in the mobile space.

Yesterday, the group signed an editorial entitled “Missing from Science Class; Too Few Girls and Minorities Study Tech Subjects.” The group of history and literature majors confidently wrote about the benefits of a tech education, how to motivate women and people with particular skin colors, and the sagacity of President Obama’s proposal on preschools (my previous post on the subject; note that Obama has previous extolled the virtues of STEM education for people other than himself (example)).

Why would folks who apparently preferred other subjects suggest that women and particular minority groups be encouraged to study tech subjects that they themselves did not like and ended up not needing?
