I’m writing this in “ink” on an IBM/Lenovox 41 Tablet and it’s a surprisingly pleasant experience!
I’m running Windows 7 (build7068- gotta love those torrents hehe!) and I’ve given it no training at all for my almost Doctor-worthy scrawl and it is amazingly good at getting my scribble!
I was forced to upgrade from the beta (build 7000) by a lack of video drivers – it would work until Windows update ran. . . . then it would freeze…. I pinned it down to the Vid / Chipset drivers. A load of google-foo later, I discovered some posts that implied that support was improved in newer builds and they were right!
Support in this build appears superb – I have screen rotation, and the box doesn’t freeze! Way to go Microsoft / Intel…….
I know it’s been 5 months since I last posted… but I’ve been kinda “busy” …. 6 weeks holiday: UK – Hong Kong – Singapore – Australia – New Zealand – Cook Islands – USA – UK. No more than 3 days in any one place, LOTS of flights (17ish), 3500+ photo’s and some killer jet-lag for christmas 🙂
Obviously, this break left me with a fair bit of catching up to do – both at work and in my “real life” 🙂
The mini-note (HP 2133) was been superb – it’s everything I was hoping for in a “netbook” – the reviews generally speak for themselves – so I won’t bore you with another one…. but suffice to say it’s now running Windows 7 and it’s flying – much better than Vista I have to say!
I’m hoping to post a bit more now – work is interesting… VMWare is looking like a winner in our investigation of what Virtualisation software to use, Exchange 2007 is upcoming (pending proof we can support IPhones with it) and a gentle roll-out of Windows 2008 (and maybe SQL 2008) is looking likely 🙂 I’m finally getting my head around sysprep – as we’re finally rolling out XP – Vista / Win 7 is a while off due to some DOS requirements (I kind you not!) so hopefully I’ll have some bits to blog about soon 🙂
I’ve also caught the “Twitter-bug” http://www.twitter.co.uk/slimboyfat if you’re interested (I’ve had the account for quite a long time – but never really “got it” until recently)
