The Good And The Bad At Windows Live Event This Year
The Good And The Bad At Windows Live Event This Year

Microsoft's Windows Live Event went down today, and it was a fun time. 3D took the major focus, and we got some new hardware debuted. First, let's talk about what I liked from the event.

The hardware was awe inspiring, and I won't take anything away from that. Incredibly powerful and incredibly versatile. They pushed the limits on technology with this one. This is the Windows Surface Studio. The only workstation that you'll probably ever need. Everything from the zero-gravity hinge to the 32GB of RAM, to the insane pixel density would in themselves make amazing features

Why Windows 7 Is Still So Popular

It's been some years since Windows 7 came out, and apparently, I never got over it, as I sit here today on my Windows 7 laptop with about 8GB of storage left. And apparently, neither did most of the world as it still sits on top of the rankings as the most popular OS to date. Currently, based on different numbers throughout the interwebs, Windows 7 dominates market share with roughly 55% computers worldwide still running it. And for good reason. It was the first OS that just worked out of the box. It didn't try to be flashy and it didn't try to be cool. It was made of Windows, a taskbar, a kick-ass start button and not much else. Applications run on it and it turns on and off when it needs to. I still do all of my programming on it, and I don't see myself changing that anytime soon.

But I never got this magical notification that is suppose to pop up to gift me with the Windows of 10. Little did I know that I could just simply head on over to the Windows download pages and grab a copy myself. Live and learn. So here is yet another review/write-up/first impressions post about Windows 10 for your reading pleasure and hopefully I'll cover something that someone hasn't yet.

What's New With Windows 10 Technical Preview
What's New With Windows 10 Technical Preview

Windows 10 is soon approaching its release day and I've been keeping up to date with it so far in the technical preview. I'm not running it as my primary OS, as that would be foolish, but I have it running on a virtual machine. And if you would like to know how to do that yourself, feel free to check out my post here. Windows 10 is the follow up to the somewhat beloved Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I say "somewhat" because I'll be honest, I'm still running Windows 7 on my primary machine, because it is awesome, and it works just fine.

How To Run Windows 10 Technical Preview On A Virtual Machine
How To Run Windows 10 Technical Preview On A Virtual Machine

Windows 10 is currently out and it is buggy as heck. As it should be, as it is still in it's Technical Preview phase. But it is quickly growing in usage which is awesome to see. Over 1 million people have signed up to take the Windows 8 follow up for a spin and share their opinions on it. More surprisingly according to this latest Microsoft post is that many people are currently using the system heavily, as in not just taking it for a test spin on a spare laptop or Virtual Machine but more using it in their day to day activities. According to the numbers only 36% of install are currently on VM's and the rest make up full installs on PCs. It could be because most people have probably never heard of Virtual Machines, and if that is so, then read on as I'll be going through the steps to install and run Windows 10 Tech Preview on VirtualBox.

You have several options when installing the OS, with their own pros and cons. So if you have some time and want to give some feedback on the future of Windows OS, then read on.

creating your own it crowd

“Have you tried turning it off and on again?” Thus goes the punchline of one of Britain’s most entertaining and often surreal sitcoms of the 21st century, The IT Crowd. But while the zany antics of Moss, Roy and Jen may belong squarely in the realm of fiction (and rarely have much, if anything at all to do with IT) they do capture what it’s like to work in IT support in broad terms every now and then. There’s a whole lot more to IT support than asking people if they’ve tried rebooting their thin client (although you will likely do it at least once). If you have entrepreneurial ambitions you may come straight out the gate wanting to start your own IT crowd, delivering bespoke IT and communications systems to small businesses and making the world a better place one query at a time.
