first multi touch notebook…

…is from hp!  i’ve got the tz1000 tablet which also allows touch, but the hp tx2z series supports multitouch.  in a growing trend, it also can be purchased with the 64 bit edition of windows vista home premium or ultimate.  it appears to be the same size as the tz1000 which i like – check…


add other 16 additional installations of windows 7

i’m slowly but surely racking up installations of windows 7 on systems.  i’ve now done my first few “over the network” installations using WDS (haven’t multicast the installation just yet).  i’ll do the math to see how many installations i’m at shortly.

windows 7 will be called…

mike nash posted the official name for the upcoming windows client release and it will be called windows 7!  not having to switch gears from a beta name to a production name is going to mean one last thing i need to stuff into my brain.  my favorite number is 7 and so it should…
