0Internet Explorer 9 LogoIE10 per Windows 7 arriva finalmente

Un altro elemento che siamo un po 'tardi per la copertura è l'arrivo di Internet Explorer 10 per Windows 7 (e Server 2008 R2). Come con le versioni precedenti, Sistemi operativi meno recenti vengono lasciati alle spalle con il supporto per Vista o XP, which are stuck on IE9 and IE8 respectively. If you have Windows 7 si consiglia l'aggiornamento (anche se non si utilizza IE) and of course there is no harm giving it a try. We’ll probably be sticking with Firefox and Chrome ourselves, ma IE a volte ha i suoi usi.

0Gli spazi di stoccaggioSpazi Microsoft Storage: RAID virtuale per Windows 8?

Microsoft’s Steve Sinofsky has written a detailed article about a genuinely exciting new feature of Windows 8 – Gli spazi di stoccaggio. I won’t repeat the details here, for those you can go straight to the horses mouth. However I will point out a key line from a home media server point of view: “There’s another resiliency attribute, detto parity, which directs Storage Spaces to store some redundancy information alongside user data contained within the space, thereby enabling automatic data reconstruction in the event of physical disk failure.To me, this sounds a LOT like a software RAID5 similar to that provided by UnRAID. Until Windows 8 is released and the technology is fully reviewed the details are of course somewhat speculative, but my reading of the article leads me to believe that Storage Spaces will enable the striping of disks, with a parity in the event of single disk failure. Further, it is reasonable to assume that this system will work with standard non-enterprise drives without suffering any compatibility issues. Finalmente, it is reasonable to assume that Storage Spaces will offer some of the performance benefits of hardware raid-5 too. If you have a home server with a lot of media and you want some redundancy, without huge cost, then this technology sounds like it might be the perfect solution. Grazie Microsoft!

Sto spesso dato PC di riparazione che richiedono una reinstallazione di Windows. Questi spesso non sono dotati di una lista completa dei numeri di serie per il software installato su di essi. Per evitare il fastidio di chiedere al proprietario di scavare i serial fuori, è più facile tirare semplicemente il serial dalla vecchia installazione prima di pulire…. Leggi l'articolo completo

1Internet Explorer 9 LogoInternet Explorer 9 – Meglio di molti si aspettavano?

Solo un post veloce, it seems that Microsoft have finally made a reasonable web browser, o almeno gli addetti Tom’s Hardware seem to think so. I’m still looking forward to Firefox 4, and hoping Mozilla will deliver a 64bit version as promised, but a bit of competition from the (ancora) dominant player in the browser market can’t be a bad thing.
