Windows 10 Creators Update could ship March 31, and we're already worried about bugs   

We'd rather wait than have a repeat of the Anniversary Update's shenanigans.

Microsoft hasn't officially committed to a ship date for Windows 10's Creators Update, but evidence suggests it could reach Insiders as soon as the end of March. Given how the last major Windows 10 update went, however, we're feeling equal parts eagerness and caution.

So far, all Microsoft has promised for the Creators Update is that it will ship in "early 2017." Two tantalizing clues suggest a more specific date: Both Microsoft's Surface Studio PC and Dell's Canvas monitor offer features closely tied to the Creators Update, and both now list shipping dates at the end of March. It's no stretch to suppose that both companies would align those releases with the Creators Update, and Dell has said as much already.

Memory Hogs is a free program for Microsoft Windows designed to monitor the performance of PC components, and alert you when thresholds are reached.

5 Linux Desktop Environments on the Rise for 2017   

With each passing year, the Linux desktop ecosystem shifts and morphs from one darling to the next. Although it's sometimes challenging to tell, from month to month, which desktop will reign as the fan favorite, there are always signs that a particular desktop is going to rise in market share.

Three trends I always examine are evolution, usability, and modernity. I prefer my desktops to have evolved along with the needs of current trends and users, to be easily used, and have a modern design aesthetic. Bonus points are generally awarded for a high range of flexibility.

Currently, the Linux desktop environment is dominated by Cinnamon, Xfce, GNOME, and Ubuntu Unity. Of those four, I believe only one will see a sharp rise in market share in 2017. Which one? Let's dive in and see which five desktops, I think will climb the rank and file.

The Browser Setting That Everyone Should Turn Off Right Now   

Affected browsers include biggies like Chrome, Safari, and Opera, as well as extensions like the password manager/form filler LastPass, which is perhaps an even more obvious target. So, if you're currently using any of these, it'd be wise to head to your Preference menu and temporarily disable the autofill feature until a security patch is pushed out.

Microsoft's latest Windows 10 ad annoys Chrome users with taskbar pop-ups   

Ads on the Windows 10 taskbar aren't just for Microsoft Edge anymore

Myce recently spotted yet another pop-up ad on the taskbar in Windows 10. This time around Microsoft was advertising its extension for Chrome dubbed the Personal Shopping Assistant (Beta). The extension is a Microsoft Garage project that lets you compare prices across shopping sites.

Prior to the Chrome extension pop-up, Microsoft was advertising its rewards program for Microsoft Edge, which we spotted in early November. The earlier ad appeared to be targeted at people who didn't use Edge that frequently.

The Chrome one, by comparison, is probably targeted at people who use Chrome as their default browser. Microsoft's likely thinking that if people won't stop using Chrome on Windows, at least they can use some Microsoft software while they're doing it.

Microsoft told that ads like the one for the Chrome
