Another Virtual Box screenshot, this time Windows 7

This is what Windows 7 beta looks like running inside a Virtual Box.

W7 in VB Screenshot

I have downloaded objectdock and opened a sticky window. Its not very quick, but my first suspicion is that its a bit short of memory. That's the problem with using a 32 bit host.

Coming to a Desktop near you

Or near me anyway, and not necessarily all that soon!

This morning's presentation on the Sun Ray technology road map suggests we're planning to to do local VPN some time this year and Video next year. Its getting there!

The presentation covered a number of technologies showing Sun recommitting to the desktop and offering a number of Linux/Windows interoperability solutions. I may have a further look and write this up in more detail, but I may not be the best suited to do this. However, a couple of my blogging colleagues cover the desktop and you can easily check'em out.

Warning: these are mid range plans and may change, deadlines may be missed, features may be dropped.

The Firefox Proxy Button

I met up with Sean Harris and Ann-Marie Jamison, earlier this week who are colleagues at work. Sean demonstrated his personal edge solution based on his Sony Erricson K700i and SyncML (see here... for more) where he keeps his e-diary, todo list and addresses. Interestingly he also let slip about the Firefox Proxy Button, which I have bookmarked here....

Proxy Button on Firefox

It allows you to compensate for the loss of profiles within Firefox by turning the proxy server on/off from a toolbar toggle button, as opposed to using the radio button in the "options" editor. If you're a Firefox user, I strongly recommend that you use this. You can also see that I have installed a del.icio.us add on, giving me toolbar buttons to go to my del.icio.us, or post a page to my del.icio.us.

The theme I am using is "Glassier"
