2012 or 2013. Asking for a co-worker.
No seriously, I know next to nothing about Mac Books other than repairing them is a rip off.

Anyway, is there a way to update the OS from OS X 10.5 to at least 10.11 ?

Windows Internals

17 Oct 2018

Posted by Corrine in All Things Windows


One of the pieces of feedback we regularly hear is that our fans want more detailed and technical articles diving deep into the behind-the-scenes on the development of the Windows OS. To address this feedback, we’re officially kicking off the Windows Internals series of articles today. Some of these articles will be new content published here on our Windows Insider website while others might be links to other blog posts from various teams talking about their work in Windows. The goal is to publish these articles whenever we can but there isn’t a set schedule. Sometimes we may have multiple articles within a single week and sometimes it might be a week or two between new articles.

More at Introducing the Windows Internals Series: One Windows Kernel - Windows Insider with the first article here, One Windows Kernel.

Oracle Java™ Critical Security Updates Released

16 Oct 2018

Posted by Corrine in Security & Networking
Oracle released the scheduled critical security updates for its Java SE Runtime Environment software.  This Critical Patch Update contains 12 new security fixes for Oracle Java SE.  11 of these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without requiring user credentials.


If Java is still installed on your computer, it is recommended that this update be applied as soon as possible due to the threat posed by a successful attack.

Java SE 8u191 or 8u192
Java SE 11.0.1  (x64-bit only)

UNcheck any pre-checked toolbar and/or software  options presented with the update. They are not part of the software update and are completely  optional.  Preferably, see the instructions below on how to handle "Unwanted Extras".
Oracle does not plan to migrate desktops from Java 8 to Java 9 through the auto update feature.  Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you uninstall JRE 8 prior to updating.
Verify your version:  http://www.java.com/...java.jsp.  Note:  The Java version verification page will only work if your browser has NPAPI support.  In that case, to check the version, open a cmd window and enter the following (note the space following Java):  java -version
