It appears that we have our first little glimpse of what Microsoft has to offer in their next Windows Operating System. According to various posts across the internet there has been information leaked on what features Windows 8 will have.
For someone like myself who normally gets acquainted with a new operating system well before it becomes publicly available this is great news, because from my perspective, by the time Windows 7 had shipped I had already been using it for well over a year and ... [ Read More ]...|

|Today I am pleased to release my first revision of my Windows 7 Deployment Poster. I have had many people ask me about Windows deployment and with all the different components out there involved with deploying Windows using various scenarios it was hard to visualise it all. So I decided some time back that it would be great to have a thousand foot overview poster bringing together the relationship between all the components. So after many hours of work here it is.
Although titled \"Windows ... [ Read More ]...|

|Microsoft has just announced some of the feature set of the upcoming first service pack for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. This will be the first time that Microsoft has officially spoken about the existence of Service Pack 1 (SP1) and any new functionality it may contain. Contrary to what I was previously led to believe, SP1 will contain some new functionality and not just updates. The currently acknowledged features are Hyper-V Dynamic Memory and RDP RemoteFX capabilities.
Hyper-V Dynamic Memory: ... [ Read More ]...|

|HP has released a teaser video of the new Windows 7 slate PC, first demonstrated during the Microsoft CES 2010 keynote.
There are a number of companies currently working on Slate computers and this one seems to be one of the more feasable initiatives. Personally I don't have a lot of faith in this form factor at this stage. Especially beyond reasonably meanial tasks such as web browsing. But I must accept that most people just want a computer today to surf the internet, but that is what netbooks ... [ Read More ]...|
|Recently there has been some discussion within various IT posts relating to a feature known as Windows 7 God Mode. After some investigation I have discovered that this feature is not specifically an unknown set of capabilities that has just been realised, but rather a way to link to many of the various configuration options already available in Windows 7. I personally would rather call this the Windows 7 God List of configuration options rather than a mode. Similar to a Super Control Panel. I must ... [ Read More ]...|
