In Let's discuss it
Lately I've being asked, since I'm known as a Jenkins expert, whether we're starting to see Jenkins' end-of-life. Since there are many CI-alternatives for Jenkins, and most of it are low-code alternatives (Yaml-based), while Jenkins is not introducing a yaml-based-CI alternative, it seems that this question is valid. Still, the dominated-install-base of Jenkins, the large community, the fear-of-change (and the cost of it) and the fact that Jenkins is much more than a CI tool, the end-of-life for Jenkins is very far away. New projects, especially in new startups (that doesn't even know sometimes that Jenkins exists), usually pick other-than-Jenkins alternatives, and we'll face this fact more in the future. But old projects will stick to Jenkins for a long time, so - for now - the answer to the topic-question 'Jenkins end-of-life' is probably 'no'. WDYT?

Windows 10 updates automatically when restarting it. How can we prevent it, and what else can be done?
In Ask or answer anything
In order to prevent automatic updates, you just need to disable them. Do it by following this post. Besides that, you can check for updates when you don't work on an urgent issue on the machine, because the update process may take a long time (sometimes it takes hours!!!). Please notice that most of the updates are security updates and should not be prevented for good, and better apply as soon as possible!
