It’s out there! Go and get it! I won’t tell you where, again, official CodenameWindows policy, but I will tell you that Office 2010 Build 14.0.4417.1000 is extremely close, if not even the fully fledged Beta. Right now it’s rather hard hunting for the actual release. But just wait for a couple of days and the downloads aer bound to come to a BitTorrent tracker near you.

Singularity RDK 2.0 Boot

Last Updated on Friday, 28 August 2009 02:46 Written by Mire_B Friday, 28 August 2009 02:22

Since I was talking about Singularity the other day, I thought you might want a taste. I don’t know how many of you actually downloaded and ran Singularity. But if you didn’t, here’s your chance to see the non-Windows operating system from Microsoft boot.

Make sure to hit the full screen button for a more complete experience. I’ll be honest with you, Singularity won’t blow your mind. For me, the highlight was that I got to run a non-Windows platform. Oh, and it reminded me of “the good old times” when I had to dig around DOS, although the blue background is incomparable friendlier.

What you’ll see in the video is the start-up of Singularity RDK 2.0, and me running a few commands. Nothing fancy!

I know what you’re wondering. Is Singularity RDK 2.0 booting faster than Windows 7? Just watch the video and see for yourselves. But bear in mind that the OS is virtualized.

Bing Toolbars for IE and Firefox, BHOs, and other Win32 Components and Apps

Last Updated on Thursday, 27 August 2009 01:40 Written by Mire_B Thursday, 27 August 2009 01:39

Bing toolbars for both Internet Explorer and Firefox, browser helper objects and even more goodies in the line of Win32 components and applications to Extend Bing to the desktop, all coming to the desktop. Sounds good? Microsoft is planning to enhance Bing with client-side code.

I don’t know about you, but I welcome the idea. I’ve been using Bing as my main search engine since launch, and although not without its shortcomings, it only rarely makes me go back to Google. The potential for client-side code for Bing doesn’t stop with toolbars, and I don’t think that the MSN Toolbar powered by Bing is all that we’re going to see from Microsoft when it comes to Bing enhancements.
