  • 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 ...

  • Vista SP1

    It has been officially available for a couple weeks now, but some of us have been running it for over a month at this point.  Of course, outside of the MSDN and TechNet avenues, the only way to get it was due to a Microsoft mistake. In any event, my home and work systems have seen tremendous benefit from the upgrade to Service Pack 1 for ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vista Upgrade Speed Bumps

    In today's lesson, we learn why pre-planning is very important... So, I try to perform the dreaded in-place upgrade of my XP x64 laptop to Vista Ultimate x64, after doing all the nice things like backing everything up, and ensuring that all apps will be suitable, and what have you.  It's a new laptop, so I'm not worried about clutter or ...

  • Getting Rolling With Vista

    As I mentioned earlier this week, I finally got my hands on my official copies of Vista, so I thought I'd see how well an upgrade would work out. Granted, it's not the 64-bit edition that I wanted to deploy, but it game me a chance to see how well Vista would upgrade over a year-old Windows XP installation.    Well, it took longer ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vista: Here it comes...

    Or rather, there it goes -- off to manufacturing. It will be very interesting to see how stable Windows Vista is in real-world deployments, but it is certainly is a highly anticipated release of the Windows operating system. So, is the world ready for Vista?  We'll soon find out.  At least, some folks will find out by the end of ...
