  • Non-Longhorn post: New worm on the loose. Make sure your systems are patched.

    There's a new worm on the way, and there's a possibility that it could be a bad one. It uses the same sort of attack vector that Blaster used, so your machine is at risk by simply being online if you're not patched, or not running a firewall.

  • Alpha Due out 2004!

    As you might have guessed from reading my previous posts, I like to try and keep up to date on the Longhorn timeline. This is partly due to the fact that I cannot wait, but also partly because whenever I tell someone about Longhorn, their first question is "what is it?" and the second is ALWAYS "when...

  • Don't Install VS 2005 CP on Longhorn

  • WinFS and System Maintenance

    My post today on microsoft.public.windows.developer.winfx.general I hope Microsoft also does some serious long term testing of Longhorn.

  • Please Don't Do It Microsoft!

    News is abound today about Microsoft considering offering a refresh of Windows XP, you can read about it at News.com . As much as I love the Matrix and would love to see a Windows XP Reloaded, I hope it doesn't happen, and here's why: It would be a shame if Windows XP Reloaded got the same reputation...

  • Longhorn- The missing pieces

    Apologies for not posting in a long time. I guess you'd all though this was another blogging casualty. But I'm back. I'm still working mainly with VB6 but I'm taking every oppotunity to cram .Net from books articles and videos online. I really like the way that WinFX will create a level playing field...
