Windows Vista review

Microsoft
Reviews

Software in Review: It's been more than 6 years since the last release of Microsoft's Windows desktop operating system. In that time, the operating system market has changed dramatically. No longer are there simple, standard PCs -- we now have tablets, handhelds, set-top boxes, and network appliances. We have low-end "email and Web" desktops, high-end gaming machines, and superpowered workstations. Having tested Windows Vista Ultimate Edition I have to wonder if the Microsoft software engineers have been paying attention.

Beranger: I do not intend to be rude and inconsiderate for the hard work of an entire team, but if KDE 4.0 will release end-October, it will be a big stain on the image of the KDE project. The current 3.90.1 is still what I would call "a proof of concept", for not saying it's a joke.

Ubuntu Studio 7.04 - The Crowning Jewel of the Ubuntu Family

Ubuntu
-s

Ubuntu Studio 7.04 was finally released yesterday to what seemed like quite a bit of excitement. Ubuntu Studio is a version that focuses on multimedia creation and manipulation with what appears to me as an emphasis on music. At the time of this writing the official website seems to be experiencing a bit of trouble, perhaps due to the high traffic. In any case, sometimes the early bird does gets his worm and this time I was up early.

Open Source Router Connects US, Australia

The ONOS Project and partners said Wednesday they have demonstrated the real-world practicality of using a router with open source software to connect networks in Australia and the US. The test validates the vision of SDN, open source for carriers, as well as ON.Lab's ONOS network operating system, according to one of its coordinators. "SDN is about disaggregation of closed, proprietary boxes and separating of forwarding planes, control planes and applications," says Guru Parulkar, executive director and board member of ON.Lab , which coordinates ONOS development. The communications test between Australia and the US achieved just that, he says.
