Going off for holidays

Filed under: Web,Windows — patrickyong @ 10:55 pm

This is my last post before I go off for my Chinese New Year holiday. Today is the last day of the lunar pig year and tomorrow over 1 billion Chinese over the world will welcome the new lunar rat year. Gong Xi Fatt Chai (wishes you prosperity) to my readers. 🙂

On the mean time Vista SP1 is out but it will only be available to the public around beginning of March. Windows Server 2008 is also out and is downloadable by MSDN subscriber. Funny thing is as of yesterday I only see the ISO download and not the product key. Maybe you got to use it on trial mode first. Having said that, there are reports leaked outside saying the kernel version of Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008 is now in sync at 6.0.6001. Vista pre-SP1 was running on 6.0.6000. http://apcmag.com/7960/microsoft_replaces_the_vista_kernel_in_SP1

But overall the purpose of Vista SP1 is to increase performance and improves stability, I hope those will be enough to lure users to upgrade. For me, I hope SP1 will improve my Crysis game play.  🙂

Another Internet cable cut are reported near UAE, making it the forth one over the week. Possibility of Internet traffic rerouting and thus causing slowness over here in Malaysia is visible to a certain extend.
