VB 3.1.4 on B132

Hi All,

So I downloaded and installed VB 3.1.4 on my B132 laptop, I have Fedora, Ubuntu and Windows 7 guests.

It really does feel a lot faster and more stable, I have not played with picking up a USB connected iPod yet.

My last blog as a Sun employee, we become Oracle on Monday.

I'm actually looking forward to the challenge.

Did you see the reply of the Americas Cup boat race

Latest VB mounts iTouch in Windows 7 guest

Hi All,

 So I downloaded the latest development builds for VB today, not being able to use my iPod Nano in the Windows 7 guest has been bugging me for awhile.

I still cannot mount the iPod Nano under the Windows 7 guest, but it's starting to look more like an Apple driver / Windows 7 issue than VB.

I did plug in my un jail broken 32Gb iTouch and what do you know, VB saw it passed it to Windows 7 and iTunes jumped on it.

After a whole afternoon of playing with it, I think you need to have the guest running first before plugging in the iTouch or iPhone otherwise OpenSolaris grabs it first.

I'm testing on a Nevada B129 install on my Acer C90S.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all

Dave
