LAST WEEK saw Microsoft dominate headlines on INQ after it was revealed that the firm had allegedly been sitting on a patch for Windows XP that could have prevented the crippling WannaCry ransomware attack.
Microsoft hasn't admitted this, though, and when INQ asked it whether it has been sitting on a patch since February, the firm failed to answer our questions.
The firm quickly changed the subject, and days later confirmed that Linux distros won't run on its newly-announced Windows 10 S operating system. The firm explained: "Just because an 'app' comes from the Windows Store does NOT automatically mean that it's safe & suitable for running in Windows 10 S."
