If you go to the main page, http://channel9.msdn.com/pdc2008/ if you select the wpf the videos for windows 7 pull up. does that on alot of links.
Give me a bit of time and I can tell you all of them. also when the windows 7 vids come up if you try to go to the second page of videos non show up and it shows 1 to ?
all these links go to the window 7 page and same issue.
on that page, ad platform, azure, ccr, dynamics, entity framework, expression, hpc, identity, iis, Internet explorer, languages, linq, live framework, live mesh, live services, office, oslo, parallelism, powershell, research, sharepoint, silverlight, sql server,

I think the issue is in the videocard itself, I've read of some people flashing other video bioses to stop the issue however if all you need to make it stop is specify through msconfig boot options how much RAM and how many processors/cores your CPU has it's definitely either a driver issue or the OS reporting wrong values to the video driver. What is known is that it's not just me having the issue, there are at least 40 pages about the problem on AMD forums (that I linked in my 2nd post) and also tweaked Catalyst drivers like DNA's are including a patch for the issue.
That said, it's still nonsense for the windows setup to lack an option to disable third-party drivers loading during the install because Microsoft cannot ensure that all the included OEM drivers in the windows install disc will work correctly on any PC configuration. For instance, when I installed vista for the first time, the install was BSODding too due to the broken JMicron driver included in the disc and I wasn't the only one with that issue, just look at some of the titles of these google results. In that case I could get rid of the BSOD by selecting IDE mode (not available on all BIOSes) or by loading a newer JMicron the driver from the setup but as said this can't be done with all drivers because only few hardware manufacturers give you those pretty ZIP files with just the "naked" driver inside requiring no extra useless software or setups to work that can be loaded in the windows setup.
Well gotcha taken care of as I am having the issue, and yes from my research it has been going on for quite awhile now. Although I did just build this system all MTI amd chipset and ati vid card.
Funny thing is that it also occurs with the onboard vid
I would hope from the near daily BSODs that I am getting and reporting back to MS in win7 will provide enough info that they can finally fix this stupid thing.
nothing definitive. but rumors are around Mix timeframe. Rumors are early views of silverlight 3 and blend 3 also.
I would say it is a little short sighted to say the reset occured because of .net.
It was more a dependacy issue than a .net issue. And a moving dependacy issue, things broke build to build because the underlying dependacy changed build to build.
Add to that the Sasser, Blaster and other worm attacks and the obvious fact that updates were not being applied.
Looking back, the Reset was caused more precisely by the Blaster Worm attack which forced MS to basically significantly rewrite and recompile portions of XP. portions of which were in 2k3. That undertaking took significant Manpower from the OS group to the support group at MS. Effectly stopping development on Vista.
The aftermath was that when sp2 was complete, the resulting code base synced with the 2k3 code base. And a Strong advancement in security from the base started in earnest. Part of the Security review was the new check in policy which was to ensure that the module was working before checked into main. so the concept was scaled back. also due to populiar demand some of the features were then abstracted and brought down level. (avalon being the biggest one)
of course this IMHO>
well in the case of SVG, Open Fonts believe me after downloading fonts to cover 95% of Unicode 5.1 mostly free but mostly windows only I can see that as a place to start. and 5.2 coming next year. will be adding something like 10k additinal code points.littleguru said:Bass said:*snip*
yeah saw that after the fact. don't post and drink at the same time;)Bas said:DouglasH said:*snip*
AFAIK, that article is about Acid3 and Webkit. BHpaddock wanted to see proof of the claim that the IE8 team only passed Acid2 because they implemented exactly what was needed to pass the test, instead of just supporting the standards.
It should be noted in the race to Acid 3. and for that matter webkit's race to acid 2.
The groups, webkit and opera(closed source but some info was given during the race) broke down each of the Tests and fixed areas or implemented areas of specs to pass Acid 3.
Also there is no modern browser that Fully implements css 2.1 or that matter HTML 4.x completely per the specs. Again there is No Modern browser that fully implements the specs 100%.
So in that statement any browser that passes acid 2, picked and chose the parts of the spec to pass that part of the specs. Acid tests are not a test to ensure a browser fully implements a given spec. but a given portion of the specs that certain groups determine would be nice to have between browsers to ensure a given site behaves the same.
As a matter of fact just implementing the portions of CSS and error handleing (which for the most part is how do we say, poorly speced out in the specs) doesn't mean a whole lot.
Watching the Dialog with MS after they turned in the Unit tests for CSS, showed how poorly some of the specs was worded. and how much lee way was given to the implementations to interpret.
although it is nice to see MS comeing full force to implementing a HTML browser with CSS standards. It would be nice to see that implementation move to an XHTML browser with support for other technologies.
and those that State Silverlight would be threaten with SVG obviously have not played in both realms before. Granted both are vector based platforms that is about where the simularities stop.

And yeah Internet Explorer has no SVG support, and I'm pretty it'll need it (and supporting stuff like SVG animations) to pass Acid3. SVG is a W3C standard, but not everything Acid3 tests is (as matthews said), and even Acid2 tests some stuff like Data URIs which aren't a accepted standard, but can be pretty useful in practice.
IE will need true support for XML XHTML before we even start to think about SVG or MathML. right now it is in isolation areas.
Personally I believe w3c has a ways to go in how integration is to occur between the X/HTML, SVG and MathML and various other specs. and are failing at basic HTML let alone the other specs. (although mathML seems to be the most reasonable spec in that list)
