Yesterday I updated my Dell Venue 8 Pro with a clean install of the official Windows 10 release.  Shortly after, I got emails and about a billion system popups notifying me that I’ve reached my device limit, like so: What?  I have three Windows 10 devices.  My Lumia 1520 and home computer have been running […]

This is sort of an addendum to Part 1.  In my case, my users have Academic E1 licensing for o365 (note that elsewhere in the o365 portal, the same exact license is called Education E1).  This means that the vast majority of our users, being on E1, aren’t licensed for a local installation of Office.  For […]
