In the latest episode of Windows Weekly, Leo Laporte, Mary Jo Foley and I discuss our trip next week to San Francisco, which Windows devices are the most popular, some new Windows Phones from BLU, iPhone 6 vs. Windows Phone, Microsoft's multiple wireless dongles, the Windows 7 life cycle countdown, Microsoft layoffs, Office 16, and Xbox One. Oh, and Microsoft's multiple wireless dongles. We talk about that again too.

Software pick of the week: Valiant Hearts: The Great War for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PCs
This puzzle adventure game is beautiful and helps you learn about the history of World War I. It's also a lot easier than a game like Machinima, so you can keep playing without getting frustrated.
Enterprise pick of the week: How to migrate off Windows Server 2003
Microsoft has a three-part Win Server & Cloud blog post series on how users still on WS 2003 can move to a more recent release -- timely, given 30% of users are still running WS 2003 and MS will stop patching it in July (2015). Part 1 is here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/server-cloud/archive/2014/08/26/best-practices-for-windows-server-2003-end-of-support-migration.aspx. Part 3 just went up this week: http://blogs.technet.com/b/server-cloud/archive/2014/09/23/best-practices-for-windows-server-2003-end-of-support-migration-part-3.aspx
