Miranda NG
Miranda NG is a powerful multi-protocol IM client

Miranda is likely to be a familiar name to anyone who uses instant messaging software. It is a tool that has been around for a number of years, and gained quite a following thanks to the fact that is made it possible to chat with people on different networks – MSN users could chat with AIM users with a single application.

This is still very much the core or Miranda, but development has started to slow down to a crawl. Because of this, a new branch of the IM client was released, Miranda NG (or New Generation). Development here is on-going and much faster than in the past.

There is no installation involved with Miranda NG, so it can be easily copied to a USB drive so that it can be used on different computers. This is a great option for anyone who frequently finds that they are using different machines or anyone who is a fan of portable software in general.

This is not a pick-up-and-play piece of software; there is a degree of configuration involved. Depending on the IM protocols you want to make use of, you may well find that you need to download add-ons before you can even get started. By default you will find support for AIM, GG, ICQ, IRC, Jabber, MSN and Yahoo, but there are many other protocols that can be added free of charge.

Despite the fact that this is still a sub-1.0 version number, Miranda NG is still remarkably stable and incredibly fast. Portability is a real boon, but it is the apps extendibility that makes it really interesting.

Version 0.95.9 is a bug fix release.

Verdict:

Fast, portable, extendable and well maintained. This is a marvellous IM client well worth checking out.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
