In one of my previous post I wrote a bit about the upcoming Windows 7. One of the biggest problems was having a Windows 7 installation up and running, but without visual web developer express (VWD) working it was quite a useless operating system.
The main problem showed up when I opened a ASP.NET web application. Editing the C# source files was no problem at all, but as soon as I opened an .aspx file the whole program freezed.
As a web developer, having a working version of VWD is too important so I switched back to Windows Vista. Sometimes solving problems can be simple; today I decided to reinstall VWD and guess what? Works like a charm! 🙂
Today I downloaded the first beta of Windows 7. I was wondering how this new Windows version performed when running under VMWare (Using 1 GB of ram and 20GB HDD). The first problem started when I wanted to download the ISO image of the beta. I am using Firefox for OSX and the according to the Microsoft site I needed to install Silverlight (I guess this is the way they want to push Silverlight into the market). I downloaded Silverlight and installed it on my Mac, restarted the browser and still no Silverlight detected…
As posted here I recently bought a Samsung NC10. It comes with Windows XP preinstalled, but I liked to have Kubuntu 8.10 installed as well. The Samsung NC10 is equipped with a 160GB harddisk so there is plenty of space (at least for me). So I started to figure out how I could install Kubuntu 8.10 on a netbook with no cd- nor dvd-drive. In this post I describe how I managed to solve these problems.
