  • A look at Microsoft’s SIR v14

    So…. I finally had a chance to finish reading the latest full edition of Microsoft’s latest Security Intelligence Report. There’s a lot of really good info in the report. The executive summary also does a good job of highlighting key points.  That said, I had a couple of observations of my own that others might find interesting.   ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Conclusion

    This is the sixth part in a series of articles tracking the implementation of virtualization on my home network.  Planning for the project originally started at the end of 2007, with some equipment purchased in early 2008, but the bulk of the work was completed in the past 2 months. For those interested in seeing how this all played out over ...

  • More Technology Goodness Today

    There were some excellent technology releases today.  The two I care about the most are Microsoft Windows 7, and the latest update of XeeSM from Xeequa. I expect Windows 7 to be big, big, big in the next few months, and I’ll be dedicating a solid post before the end of the year to talk about the installations I have done.  32-bit and ...

  • Will You Be Testing Windows version 7?

    I’m interested in finding out how many people want to test Windows 7, either for their home networks or their business networks (small or large). I have created a poll via LinkedIn where I hope to capture this information.  If you are a LinkedIn user, please feel free to participate. Thanks!

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3

    As reported by ComputerWorld, the latest Service Pack for Windows XP, SP3, is finally available via the MSDN and TechNet download sites. This is only for the 32-bit version of XP, btw.  Users of XP x64 will need to wait for Service Pack 3 for Windows Server 2003 in order to get an update, as the 64-bit version of XP (non-Itanium version) is ...

  • Get your dose of Vista Service Pack 1

    If you're a 64-bit Vista user, that is...  It looks as though the users of Vista x64 can obtain Service Pack 1 via Windows Update. I've already started down the MSDN path for obtaining the Service Pack, but that has presented its own set of issues.  (TechNet is also another option for obtaining the Service Pack for x86 or x64 ...

  • Windows Server 2008

    Lately, I've been so busy with processes and procedures and policies, that I haven't had a chance to play with the upcoming version of Windows Server 2008.  I have had an opportunity to read a number of reports, including the one from eWeek, and it seems that the reports are favorable, especially where the new virtualization features are ...

  • Vista Sales Better Than Expected

    Or, more precisely, better than many analysts expected.  The analysts always seem to initially expect that the new OS will sell wildly better than the current OS, and then when Microsoft provides any guidance to suggest caution, they downgrade their expectations to ''will probably do poorly''.  Thus, they are always surprised when it ...

  • The Microsoft Dilemma

    The issue I speak of relates to how many changes and new features should go into a new release of their software product.  If Microsoft adds lots of new functionality, then customers and analysts conclude that the likelihood of bugs within the new code is high and so they avoid product adoption for months or years or until several service ...

  • Got my January ActionPack Subscription

    I came home this evening to find out that the January shipment of my Microsoft ActionPack Subscription arrived today. Sweet!! Sort of, anyway...  First the good news:  I got my Office 2007 licenses, or should I say, Microsoft Office System 2007.  It even came with SharePoint Server 2007, and Microsoft Office Accounting ...
