Microsoft is aiming to bring virtualization under mainstream computing via couple of its up coming products.
Windows Virtual PC along with Windows XP mode and MED-V (Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization) are among those products by which Microsoft is aiming to provide both home and business users the ability to utilize the power of virtualization.
The main force behind this move is a basic question which comes up every time when we get a new operating system. That is, application compatibility. Users find it difficult to afford the cost to upgrade / update their existing applications to make them compatible with the new OS hence adoption of a new OS becomes problematic.
Previously, we have seen that since Windows 2000, Microsoft is running their Windows Downgrade Rights programs to allow users to obtain and downgrade to a previous version of OS. However, with up-coming Windows 7 we can all rest assure about the application compatibility issue.
Here is a little screenshot which I would like to share.
Recently I obtained a trail DVD of Adobe CS4 Master collection. For faster installation and other testing purpose, I copied all the data in to my hard drive. When I tried to delete the files, I found that because there are so many files, Windows is calculeting and displaying the deleting speed in Files per second rather than usual bytes (MB or KB) per second.
The Technical preview of up coming version of Microsoft Office, the Microsoft Office 2010 has found is way out of companies development chamber and now floating around in the cyberspace via many file sharing networks and web sites, available for public download.
So let’s take a quick look at the product via some quick screenshots.
The Service Pack 2 (Sp2) of Microsoft office 2007 is out and available for download. Many would be interested to know as how can one integrate or slipstream Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) in the installation source.
Create a network installation source
Insert the Office 2007 installation CD / DVD into your optical (CD / DVD) drive.
Copy all content of the CD to a folder under your hard drive, for example in my case its “F:\O_2007”
Obtain the Service Pack 2 (SP2)
Download the Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 2
Extract the Service Pack
Create a folder “SP2” under the F drive (in your case create where you have the Office 2007 Service Pack two)

Not sure of any global effect, but after talking to some of the known adsense users in India, it seems Google is delaying the payout (cheque) for at-least 2 weeks !!
Google Adsense team is informing all the effected users via email about this issue. This is what I have received from Adsense team.
We’d like to let you know that the delivery of your most recent AdSense check payment has been slightly delayed by a few days. However, please be assured that it will be mailed to you early next week.
We appreciate your patience.

Update (May 14, 2009) :-
Google compensate the delay, as I am just being informed that they are using BlueDart courier service this time around for faster delivery of the pending cheque rather than usual Gov postal service !!!
We’d like to inform you that your most recent AdSense check has been shipped via Blue Dart. You can now find a Blue Dart tracking number in your AdSense account. For your convenience, we’ve also included this tracking number here: xxxxxxxxxxx.
You can use this number to track your payment at www.bluedart.com . Please contact your local Blue Dart office if you have any questions.
