I'm back with another audience-driven episode of #AskDanWindows!
I'm answering five questions this week instead of the usual three. I'm focusing on Windows 10 S, why we don't push Samsung phones here at Windows Central, and the tech I recommend for getting back into fitness!
Audience questions for Episode 42
