Windows logo returns as a... Window

Just read the blog post of the Windows team here and I think the new logo (if it will be the selected design in the end) shows the changes in Windows 8.

It's easy to think that Windows 8 will be Windows 7 part 2 or Vista part 3. But it will soon be clear that this will be a change just as big or bigger than XP to Vista.

The comment why do you use a flag when it's called Windows.

Great idea with the new logo, but hopefully there will be some designers that will add some "bling" to it.

Selling Deployment By The Pound

If you want to creat your own Windows 8 To Go you can ready my blog post about how to do it here

One of the great thing about To Go is that you can test the hardware before installing it.

Sadly to little time to cover all I wanted, but hopefully people got an insight to MDT.

Sleeping with Hyper-V

NO, I do not have a sick fetish (at last not one including Hyper-V). But I do alot of demoing on my laptop and love to use Hyper-V for that.

This means that I cannot use an ordinary Windows 7 client installation, we have to wait for Windows 8 for Hyper-V to be supported in the client operatin system.

I have been using Windows Server as my laptop OS for quite some time now and the only thing I missed was the possibility to use the "Sleep" feature (not that big deal when using SSD disk when starting, but the shutdown are slow because of the saving of running VM's)


So I found a solution sometime ago.

Windows 8 screen shot leak, are the start menu dead?

Looking at the screen shoots published at http://www.neowin.net/news/windows-8-screenshots-of-build-8820-leak-new-info-surfaces it looks like we are not getting the ordinary start menu back. Wonder what will happen if we try the registry hack I have bloged about previous here?

If you take a look at the picture you see that the start option is missing totaly

Window Phone 8 and data encryption?

I am a happy user of my Samsung Omni 7, especially after the Mango update and Spotify got available. It is actually the smart phone I have had for the longest period (about 18 months, and no immediate plan to replace it). It's robust and stabile.

But basically a phone is just a tool to communicate, and I have never been that interested in phones as long as I can call and have descent Exchange functionality. But, as things comes together it looks like the new Windows Phone 8 will run Windows 8 core and have cool features like Bitlocker.
