For My Cincinnati Attendees…

For those of you who had attended the Cincinnati event and are patiently waiting for your copy of Windows Vista, I have good news.  I collected business cards, addresses, etc. from everyone who was in the room at the end (and as many of you who left before the lunch event as I could).  I’ve…

My Portland Event (again)

One of the other discussions which occurred at my Portland event was around Vista.  As always, there were some lovers and some haters.  I started the discussion and then let the audience go at it.  And, as usual, I was impressed by the different experiences people had to discuss.  While those who don’t like Vista…

Vista… Meet XP. XP? XP? XP! This is Vista.

  If that title conjured up a vision of a mother yelling at her child when she’s trying to introduce him to someone, then I did my job.  If that wasn’t the vision you got, then I’ve just explained it.  Now what does that title have to do with Windows Vista and Windows XP?  In…

Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld?

If you haven’t seen it yet, it is true.  Microsoft has released a new ad campaign featuring BillG and Jerry Seinfeld together.  They’re at a shoe store of all places.  I have to admit, I watched the commercial last night for the first time and thought, "Huh?"  I read a lot of comments online today,…

Why Vista? (Volume 11 — The Last and Final Chapter)

"The Last and Final Chapter" — that sounds ominous, doesn’t it?  Maybe "Windows Vista and the Deathly Hallows" would’ve been better, but I think a cease and desist letter would be in the mail tomorrow.  ;)  At any rate, it’s been a busy, busy time for me.  We’re back on the road doing live events,…

Why Vista? (Volume 10 — Instant Search) AND "Where’ve you been, Dan?"

You may have noticed I haven’t made a posting here for a couple days.  You, like many others, were probably sitting on the edge of your seat salivating for the next “Why Vista?” post only to be denied not once, but twice!  What in the world was I thinking???  Have I become so lazy I…

Why Vista? (Volume 9 — ReadyBoost)

It’s tough to talk about ReadyBoost without some working knowledge of how the operating system deals with memory.  That’s why I am going to talk about it a bit.  Basically, the amount of RAM (Random Access Memory — usually referred to as simply, “memory”) your computer has dictates how many things your PC can efficiently…

Why Vista? (Volume 8 — Windows Media Center)

I spent the weekend trying to think up some great business value scenarios for using Windows Media Center.  The truth is, I couldn’t come up with many, though I did manage a couple: News — you can watch headline news stories from NBC Nightly News (online, without a TV tuner) With a TV tuner and…
