Virtual PC 2007 Beta Available from Connect

by Sander Gerz October 11, 2006 21:10

Virtual PC 2007 Beta is available for download from http://connect.microsoft.com.

Ever since I switched to Windows Vista I had issues with running Virtual PC 2004. Biggest problem was that the screen would no longer repaint itself upon actions done inside the VPC image. Blind typing extreme... but it wasn't that funny. Also, desktop composition was out of the question, but with showstopper nr. 1, I couldn't be bothered with this one. Maybe a graphics card driver issue (different Vista builds, same results).

First mission after installing Virtual PC 2007 Beta is running an old image that never worked properly. And the result is excellent! That old image worked without a hitch. Desktop composition, ehr.. Aero Glass, is still working and the screen refreshes nicely.

Yes, it's a beta, and this is by no means a thorough test that I'm doing, but my first impression says victory.

Now, on to downloading and trying out that other image. Ouch.. four hours remaining.

Share your Windows Vista Experience Index

by Sander Gerz October 07, 2006 12:02

Notice the 3,4 in the left column of this weblog? Yes, that's my Windows Experience Index base score.

There are quite a few people publishing their score on a weblog or forum. The way it's usually posted is by means of a screenshot. Not the most convenient way. So I decided to put together a website where you can upload your score. Once uploaded, you can copy an html-text like the one you see here:

3.4

There a a few buttons available, and the button links to the score-page. Click the button to see.

Your question may be doing with the data that's uploaded? Well, for one, nothing more than what's in the index score file can be saved of course. And there are no personal details in this file. No e-mail addresses are recorded. I'll make an effort will be to ensure the integritity of the data. Since the scores are stored in an XML file, it's easy to manipulate. How about a base score of 120! Of course, once this happens, the data becomes useless. Entries like this will be deleted or refused.

Check out the Windows Vista Team Blog for more information about the Windows Experience Index. And if you're running or planning to run Windows Vista, check out http://www.shareyourscore.com.
