Another item that we’re a bit late to cover is the arrival of Esplora Inter-net 10 per Win-dows 7 (and Server 2008 R2). Come con le versioni precedenti, sistemi operativi più vecchi sono stati lasciati senza sostegno per Vista o XP, which are stuck on IE9 and IE8 respectively. If you have Windows 7 si consiglia di upgrad-ing (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.

Microsoft’s Steve Sinofsky has written a detailed article about a genuinely exciting new feature of Windows 8 — Storage Spaces. 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. Thanks Microsoft!
I am frequently given PC to repair that require a reinstall of windows. These often don’t come with a full list of serial numbers for the software installed on them. To avoid the hassle of asking the owner to dig the serials out, it is easier to simply pull the serials from the old install before wiping.… Read Full Article
Solo un post veloce, sembra che Microsoft ha finalmente fatto un browser web ragionevole, o almeno gli addetti Hardware di Tom sembra pensarla così. Sono ancora in attesa di Firefox 4, e sperando Mozilla offrirà una versione a 64 bit come promesso, ma un po 'di concorrenza da parte della (ancora) dominant player in the browser market can’t be a bad thing.
Microsoft are offering a downloadable Beta of version 2 of their free security app Security Essentials. This works on Windows Server. For anyone (come me) who is using Server 2008 at home (ad es. on a file server) and needs anti-virus, I highly recommend this.
Aggiornare: Ver-sione 2 final is now available.
Microsoft have now updated their free anti-virus to version 1.0.1500 which is available from windows update if you have the previous version installed (vedere my previous post). If you want to install 1.0.1500 without installing the old version first it can be downloaded from Microsoft. If you’re in a country where its unavailable then you can download it from SoftPedia
Microsoft have released (a few weeks ago) a free Beta of their new Anti-Virus / Security product Microsoft Security Essentials. Unfortunately as a Regno Unito resident when I visit the official Microsoft page I am told “This beta is available only to customers in the United States, Israel, China and Brazil”. A quick google search quickly turns up a download link on SoftPedia which works. There are downloads of x86 and x64 versions of Security Essentials for Windows XP, Vista and 7
