  • An interesting Windows Vista article

    I just finished reading an article on Windows Vista from InfoWorld, and it makes several really good points. Windows Vista brings a lot to the table that gets de-emphasized by the masses.  It's funny that when Microsoft releases a product that is primarily a refinement of the previous version (XP vs 2000), there are complaints about having ...

  • 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 ...

  • Key Windows Updates are coming

    The month of February should see the release of both Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, according to reports published by ComputerWorld, and I'm looking forward to them both. I have only performed a few brief tests of Windows 2008 so far, but I expect to change that over the next few weeks, once I bring my new virtual ...

  • The Ever Inconsistent Microsoft...

    One of the things that annoys me about Microsoft (and this is true, to some extent, of any large company) is that there are too many times where it seems that one hand is not talking to the other.  Sometimes, it seems like one hand doesn't even know that there's another hand. Some of the most recent examples of this silliness are as ...

  • Making the move to 64-bit Vista -- Finally!

    Yeah, yeah, it took me long enough.  What can I say?  I finally bit the bullet and installed Vista Ultimate x64 Edition on my laptop.  As I mentioned last month, my Vista upgrade path was not as smooth as I had hoped, since I was going to be forced to perform a clean install, but I must say that the actual installation ...

  • 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 ...

  • Getting Used to Windows Vista

    My Vista initiation continues, and so far, I don't have much to complain about.  I've done this whole ''new version of Windows'' thing enough times in the past 15 or so years that I know that there's really no point in not spending a week or two getting used to the new functionality before complaining about what I think I lost.  ...

  • 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 ...
