  • Late Christmas Present

    Hi All,

    Received a late Christmas Present today......my channel9 guy! No camera with me at the moment, I'll take a pic later and post.

    I sent my postcard a couple of months back, so it takes a little while to come, but hey he's here!

    Thanks C9 Team Smiley

    Hi all,

    I have done this using windows XP embedded, it's very usefully for very specific tasks, what I used it for was a PC which needed to slient when booted and connected to a terminal server once booted. XP embedded was Ideal for this.



    Out of interest how does it cope with swap space, or is it off by default?


    Hi Blowdart,

    Thats correct the swap file is off by default.

    Boot up was quick on flash and the image was around 200mb, which support sound, video, wifi, network and usb.

  • External Hard Drive

    Some times PnP assignes the drive a letter which is in used by a network drive mapping, so you need to go into disk managment and change the drive letter assignment to one that's not in use, Windows normally remembers the assignment... hth Big Smile

  • Why CTRL-ALT-DEL to login?

    Someone asked me today why they needed to press ctrl-alt-del to login and I couldn't give an answer, does any one know the thinking behind this?

  • Can Microsoft still call it Visual ​"​Basic"?

    I don't think it should be called BASIC any longer. I believe part of the bickering over c# and VB is that VB has the word BASIC in it, which makes other people, who choose to use other languages to think of VB as inferior in some way, as with any language there advantages and disadvantages to all.

    I think a better name would be V+ Big Smile

  • will Vista succeed on word of mouth?

    Home Users

    I would advise them to keep what they have until the required the purchased of a new PC or Laptop. If Vista is expensive as XP for the upgrade.

    Business Users

    I supply Support and Installation services to SME's here in the UK. Microsoft Software (IMHO) is great software. It's just real hard to sell good software when you don't get any real advantage for the investment.

    You can go out today and Purchase a PC with XP Pro on for around £300. Which is cheap and will do most tasks for the advage office memember, now add on office, £ 120 to £200. (depedning on which version on how it's purchased FBP, OEM, etc). Now your £300 pc is £500. (with out any screen).... now but 20 of them for the office staf... yep you have just spent 10k.

    When Vista hits the shelfs so will office 12, not everyone will upgrade due to the cost implecations.

    It's to early to say if Vista will be worth the upgrade, I have installed MSN desktop search onto some of my clients PC's and every user from young to old had said to me they find it real useful, which makes me think when people use Vista and it's search along with Virtual Folders (very bad name btw!)... will this be the killer app that will push Vista to the masses.....?

    There will be lots of useful stuff in Vista for rolling out across networks and managing, but I would be selling it for the benfit of myself and not my customers....

    Sorry to rant a little...... Enjoy! Big Smile
