AnandTech Podcast #35: The summer season has been busier than usual. Microsoft released Windows 10, it’s latest operating system, as a free upgrade to current Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, promising it to be the latest and greatest from Microsoft, but also why it might be the last full release of an operating system from them. Brett’s indepth review of Windows 10’s features is now available on the AnandTech website, with a link below.  Hot on the heels of Windows 10 was Intel’s launch of its new Skylake processor microarchitecture, which came in two desktop processors only to begin with. This was followed up by a more in-depth discussion of what Skylake actually does at Intel’s Developer Forum, and in this podcast we discuss what Skylake brings to the table as well as the performance and our interpretation of how Intel’s vision is set to develop in the coming years.

    I just wanted to say that it's REALLY fucking awesome that the podcast starts with Ian IMMEDIATELY talking.

    It's so annoying when there's stupid intros and other BS. Thank God that you guys don't do that.
