  • The fastest Vista laptop on the market

    Two problems there:

    1) PC World is using their benchmarks. Who KNOWS what the heck those are. They might have just given the MacBook and extra point or 10 just because it's a Mac.

    2) They might have taken the cheapest notebooks from Toshiba, Dell, etc and the most expensive MacBook they could buy. For example, they have only tested 1 tablet PC in the HISTORY of PC World, a Gateway tablet, which isn't one of the better Tablet PCs on the market.

  • Visual Studio 2008 already finished?

    While watching the new screencasts from Daniel Moth (see Screencasts section), I noticed that when he opens Visual Studio 2008, the splash screen doesn't contain the "Beta 2" text anymore.

    Might this be an indication that an RTM version is already available at Microsoft internally? Or is it an RC (which I doubt because Scott Guthries mentioned in his blog that the final release is not very far off).

    Has anyone more information? Any interviews with Scott and/or Soma planned in the near future, Charles ?


    They usually remove Beta 2 off the splash right after it ships. That doesn't mean that it is RTMed, it just means The Moth is using an internal build of VS 2008.

  • C# or VB.NET

    How about you learn both? They are both VERY similar. They really don't have many differences. Most people split hairs over small features... but they esentually do the same stuff and both merge to IL. If you want a "feature-rich" language, I suggest you start learning IL
    Funny...I picked up a VB.NET book the other day. Both languages do share a lot in common. But if I go to the trouble of learning the IL, I'd take it a step further and build my own language!


    You can  look out there... there are MANY features that you can take advantage of in IL that you can't do in C# or VB. The features just haven't been integrated into the C#/VB languages.

    They are similar. People think that VB was "adopted" from previous versions and is just ploped into the .NET framework. That isn't the case. When they started development of .NET, they started on a fresh codebase and took the VB syntax with them, not the code. It's clean Smiley

    But C# is a great language... all .NET languages are great, in fact.

  • So .NET is ​"​Resource&qu​ot; Sourced... what's next?

    Well, the .NET framework has been "Shared" sourced. So what is the next thing to be open sourced? How about Channel9???

    To me, that would be REALLY sweet to see the codebase for c9 v4 since it is a clean implementation of ASP.NET code.

    DotNetKicks open sourced a while ago... so how about it, c9???

  • Football Season :)

    Did you see the Colts defence last Thursday... DANG! Colts are going to win again... they have a good chance!

  • Just say no to Terrorist

    If someone can save one person, it's worth it.

     

    And I'm not quite sure that would allow them to kidnap people in the future.

  • Just say no to Terrorist

    How would you feel if you were being held hostage by Islamic extreamests? Anything to preserve human life!

  • Windows Live Calendar desktop and Windows Live Sidebar

    I've heard that there WILL be an XP sidebar.

  • C9v4?

    It's just the fact that they hyped it up like it was the iPhone and:

    1) Didn't deliver in a timely manner
    2) Delivered something that was... interesting Smiley

    I would have expected a little more out of the team... especially since they are using Scrum. We should be seeing a new version (or updated) every 4 weeks (says the Scrum gods.)
