It was faily quick to install Windows7 on VirtualBox after mounting the ISO directly instead of using DVD. I was not expecting to be able to work with Windows7 on VirtualBox but it took me by surprise as it’s better than Vista and not sluggish at all. On top of it, even the latest beta release as got 3 updates available for download as soon as you’re done with the Installation which doesn’t require a reboot (Thank god!). There seem to be 7 differences with this release through which Microsoft is trying hard to win back the consumer confidence lost along with its Vista release.
Here is the first look at Windows7 Desktop:
Here comes Internet Explorer 8 in action. Yes, had no issues with Kannada webpage views.
Here is an interesting new feature which I explored while installing Windows7
Yes, password for home group networking. Hmm!
Though i’m not a PC User, I’m exploring this beta to see new up’s and down’s of Windows OS. FYI: Microsoft started its new year with a Critical patch release for SMB remote exploit.
Internet Explorer is vulnerable. Be careful, Microsoft alarms its users not to use its own browser.
Users of the world’s most common web browser have been advised to switch to a rival until a serious security flaw has been fixed.
Yes, If you’re really worried about your privacy never use Internet Explorer. It’s not today’s story for years we have been having security issues with Internet explorer and now its worst. Use FOSS tools to be secure and to feel secure.
The curriculum which is being served to tomorrows engineers in most of the colleges is mostly outdated or its not up-to the mark to empower students for tomorrow’s on job challenges. They are forced to depend on the IT skills sold by private institutes. I have been through this already and I have understood that the real power of FOSS can empower students to be tomorrows innovators and then entrepreneurs while they give back lot more than just software to the community.
Our well known technical university is still living in the world of Monopoly. It has failed to look at the world of opportunities and technology with Open Mind. It goes ahead and have tie-ups with the giant proprietary software provider “Microsoft”. Hey do you know one thing, MySQL made billions of dolors and there are more examples today to prove that there is lot more than M$ in this world. Wake up!
We got to create tomorrows engineers not by just feeding from the books and resources provided by software gaints. But by making our students think, what do we really require for our country and for our selves. By making them create free and open source software which can really give them the freedom to use it, develop and share it with all for FREE as in FREE SPEECH. Spend the money on infrastucture required to create the research environments for students and in turn create challenges which are “REAL TIME”. “Look beyond the Mirror” there is lot more out there….
