Kiwi System Info 1.0.1
A tiny, portable, expert-level System Information program

Kiwi System Info is a compact and portable tool which provides a great deal of very in-depth information on your PC.

The program organises its data into 7 main areas, each of which has a toolbar icon: "Hardware Info", "Data Storage", "Memory", "System Info", "Network", "User & Security" and "Developer".

And each of these areas has a number of categories which you can choose to view. So "Hardware Info" includes "BIOS", "Printer" and "Processor", for instance; "Data Storage" has "DiskDrive", "DiskPartition" and "LogicalDisk"; and "System Information" gives us "Account", "Process", "Service" and so on.

One problem you'll notice immediately is that many of these categories are highly technical, and won't mean much to the average user (CIMLogicalDeviceCIMDataFile, HeatPipe, PNPEntity and so on).

And even when you select a more basic category, it generally isn't presented very well. So when we clicked "DiskDrive" on our test system, for instance, we found "Size" was specified as "256052966400". Which isn't very helpful.

The reason for this is that Kiwi System Information is grabbing all its data directly from the operating system, via Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). This makes it very easy to create the program, as Windows tells you exactly what to display (which is why the entire program is just a single 388KB executable). But the down side is that you'll inevitably get a great deal of complicated details which most people will never need at all.

If you just want a system to give you the basics, then - how many drives, their free space, what graphics card do you have, say - Kiwi System Info really isn't for you.

But, if occasionally you need to know far more low-level details, then grab a copy of the program. It'll take up very little disk space, and one day just might prove very useful indeed.

Verdict:

Kiwi System Info can display a vast amount of detailed information on your PC, but much of it is highly technical, poorly presented, or both. This is for Windows experts only.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 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 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.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
