  • Microsoft and Novell: The Odd Couple

    The tech news is all abuzz about the announcement that Microsoft and Novell are working together on product integration, including integration between Windows and Linux technologies. Several people have already commented that this is a strategic move by Microsoft to combat Oracle's Linux play, and also to somewhat blunt the threat the Linux poses ...

  • Microsoft Updates Vista Licensing -- Again

    As expected, Microsoft has softened a key element of Vista licensing, enabling (more like re-enabling, if you think about it) users to transfer their retail license from one system to another, without restriction -- so long as they aren't shared simultaneously. Personally, I think that Microsoft floated this change to Vista knowing full well that ...

  • SysInternals Site Migration

    Looks like the SysInternals Website is preparing for a Site Migration, having been acquired by Microsoft in mid 2006.  I can only hope that it retains the same level of usefulness that is has provided for a great many years at this point.  This one site has been incredibly instrumental in providing tools and information ...

  • Apple Just Doesn't Get It...

    On Tuesday, Apple Computer company had an issue where a Windows-based virus was shipped on a select number of iPods, and rather than accepting blame for a mistake in their manufacturing or QA processes, they blamed Microsoft for not producing a ''more robust OS''. Huh? Not only is that an absurd deflection of blame, but as ...

  • Microsoft makes Vista concessions

    Otherwise known as Vista vs the EU and the World: Part Three... Here's a follow-up to my earlier Vista vs the World and Vista vs the Security Vendors posts, where I noted I greatly preferred a stronger, more secure base OS, even if that inhibited some functionality for third-party security tools. As seen in the following articles, Microsoft is ...

  • Vista vs the Security Vendors

    Otherwise known as Vista vs the Selfish Security Vendors: Part Two... Here's a follow-up to my earlier Vista vs the World post, where I noted I greatly preferred a stronger, more secure base OS, even if that inhibited some functionality for third-party security tools. This morning, I came across the following post by Larry Seltzer of eWeek where ...

  • Minor System Upgrade

    I was forced to upgrade one of my systems this week because the motherboard (or CPU) died.  Rather than mess around trying to figure out which specific component was impacted, I ran over to NewEgg (virtually, of course), and picked up a new AMD Sempron 3400+ CPU and a Gigabyte Socket 754 motherboard for cheap to replace the previous Athlon ...

  • Vista vs the World

    Or, perhaps I should say Microsoft vs Security providers in the Windows space? What I'm talking about eWeek's report that discloses McAfee's complaint that Microsoft has made it hard for them (and other security vendors) to integrate their products into Vista.  Presumably, this would be so that Microsoft can take advantage of the OS in ...

  • Vista is getting closer

    According to some reports, the latest build of Vista released to testers displayed improved stability and performance, and looking like it will make the holiday season without issue.  A broader preview program is still to come.  I'm looking forward to see the improvements over Windows XP first hand.  Until now, I haven't ...
