Finally the cat's out of the bag: Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista has been released. MSDN subscribers could already download and install it. I tried a couple of weeks ago on my Macbook Pro (on which I run Windows Vista Ultimate thanks to bootcamp) and it worked out nicely for me.

I just installed succesfully Vista Ultimate on my MacBook Pro with the bootcamp utility. Quite easy to setup actually. You just need to keep in handy your Vista install DVD and the Leopard installation DVD for the necessary extra driver installations to get the hardware to work. Aero works like a charm and the speed is also very nice. I still need to figure out where all the keys are located and which works and which doesn't but up untill now it looks promising.

A couple of weeks ago I was looking at creating Windows Vista Sidebar Gadgets based upon the tutorial at MIX university. If you're interested in that and Powershell you might be interested in Powergadgets as well. I just found out about the site but hope to find some free time to explore the goods.

No, this isn't some spam about getting your degree from university for $... This blog post is about the MIX university where you can get handson labs about WPF, Virtual Earth, ASP.NET AJAX or Vista Sidebar Gadgets. Check it out: http://www.visitmix.com/university/

For a course I'm going to follow, starting tomorrow, I needed VPC to run on my laptop. Unfortunately my old VPC software didn't run but one can obtain the beta of VPC 2007. Just installing that and trying to add an existing vpc image gave this error:

Pretty nasty. Apparently this comes thanks to the new UAC that ships with Vista. One can set it off, like Gill Cleeren describes in his blog post: Windows Vista tips & tricks #3: Disable UAC (User Access Control). This did the trick but setting UAC off is something that I don't want to do at the moment before I know the consequences.

Another tip I saw gave me what I wanted: Run programs as administrator in Windows Vista. I use Vista Enterprise but am unable to see the extra tab Compatibility under the properties and the Run as administrator's also not available to me. However the other tip, typing in the name "virtual pc" and then pressing the combination ctrl + shift + enter. This causes the program to be ran as an administrator.

Ok, if you like the new Vista Aero cursors but don't have Vista installed yet you can download them here. Just unzip the file in the c:\windows\cursors\ location. I noticed that I had to move the cursors still to that location before I let the .reg file run in order to get them installed as being the current cursor set to use on Windows XP.

Just found this on Tom Archer's blog. At the moment it can be quite confusing to keep up with all the CTP's, releases and which month's version should I use? Well, this blog entry tries to make it clearer: Determining Which Build of Windows Vista and .NET 3.0 Development Tools is Right for You.

I just found out about the existence of this newly dedicated site: netfx3. After blogging already about the renamed WinFX to .NET 3.0 framework name it seems Microsoft's dedicated to the new naming.

Just read .NET Framework 3.0 at Somasegar's blog.

It's just rebranding of the name Microsoft pushed as WinFX, because behind the scenes it seems to be the same .NET 2.0 framework as we're having now, but with added value: Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) and Windows CardSpace (WCS).

I'm already looking forward to .NET 4.0. Are you?

Update: another article by Brad Abrams is online too: Toward .NET Framework 3.0....
