    Well, I use DebugView quite a lot, where/when can I get the new and 'better' version ?

    Maybe Mark can be a guest for GoingNative and show us how to write 'scalable', 'portable' and 'performant' native code !

    @felix9: Re: Mark on GoingNative... We'd love to have him as a guest. He's an elite native dev. That is for sure. Sysinternals tools are all written in native code (C/C++)...

    Huh, Mark said "RIGHT NOW Windows Phone runs on Windows CE", why say 'RIGHT NOW' ? this will change in the future ?? Devil

    OK OK OK.

    But I think I can remove the 'internet downloaded file' tag from the properties dialog in Explorer, so why use streams ?

    @felix9: Are you really Mary Jo Foley? Don't read into things too deeply. Mark was talking about why SI tools won't work on WP7 (well, not to mention you couldn't put them on the device in the first place...). The tools require Windows proper (so, Windows with Win32, Windows kernel, etc...) and Windows CE is not really Windows in the sense he's talking about....

    No news here, Mary Jo Smiley

    Haha, OK. And no, I am much better than Mary Jo Angel

    Talking about DebugView, one feature I missed from CodeSite  in those Delphi days is, with CodeSite Viewer you can optionally seperate the views by thread id, this is very useful while debugging multithreaded code.

    So does the book also at least mention the retired tools or it focusses only on current tools?

    I read the Sysinternals Administrator Reference. Very Exciting Its just pure entertainment for people who troubleshoot Windows systems day in and day out. The new Processor Explorer with GPU support is awesome, just made my life a lot easier troubleshooting gpu issues to some extent

    Interesting watch. GPU support seems kinda sketchy with nvidia optimus, but that's not really suprising since that's just a hardware hack.
