Links for 2009-1-5: Zune bug, Windows 7, 2009 IT Predictions, Marines use Sun
By kevinschmidt on Jan 05, 2009
- The Zune Bug - Reminds me of programming telemetry systems at JPL where we had to worry about leap seconds.
- First reactions to Windows 7 - "I haven’t yet found a Mac or Linux user who feels tempted back to Windows based on what they’ve seen in Windows 7. Those Mac and Linux users who still make use of Windows in a limited way (for gaming or running specific applications) see themselves sticking with XP or Vista as their secondary OS until they either can break ties with Windows completely or until forced to switch."
- IT predictions: What’s in and what’s out for 2009 - Some interesting ones. RedHat out and Ubuntu in. HP laptops/desktops in and Dell out. And despite Azure just being announced they are saying it is out already!
- Sun Microsystems To Provide Access and Identity Management (IAM) Solutions to more than 400,000 Marines
