you have to remove the number behind the .jpg

that way it protects itself against direct external links...

As an aside to a pretty old thread...VirtualBox supports virtualizaion on systems that don't support VT as well.

True virtualization, or paravirtualization?

truely virtualization like VMware. But 64-bit guests require VT hardware.

Right ... I don't think anyone (not even VMware) does 64-bit without VT.

which sort of temonstrates the hackyness of VT (or doing it without) as nobody seems to care about implementing it for the low end 64 bit cpus, right?

There are 64-bit Intel CPUs without VT?

yep, a few.
The 64bitness came out before somebody insisted it be useful.
Friend of mine has one. He says there's about 3 of them, and he has one.

Figures. It's always the early adopters who get screwed.

Then again I bought a Core i7 920 when they first came out a year ago and I haven't had a need to upgrade it yet...

So are they as wonderful as everybody says?
I met a 20 year sun veteran heavy hitter, a few weeks ago who said he got one and he was amazed.
And I figure if a sun engineer thinks its good, it's gotta be pretty damn good

What constitutes "amazing" in a CPU these days? Just speed?

They crunch numbers like mad. There's nothing quite like seeing eight
penguins when you start up. (Except seeing 12, 16, or 24 penguins next
year when the Gulftown chips hit the market.)

heh, they're trying to game the google search engine by having people spam their own blogs with MS tool rants and raves. It's going to be fun watching the two of them fight it out over the next few years

anyone else notice that the memory thermometer on Vista/W7 is just an abstraction? I'm not sure what it even corresponds to, probably it's roughly equivalent to your working set minus cache, or the active page list, or something... it's definitely a lot less than the commit charge on most occasions, so I think MS was trying to hide the fact that Vista consumes a ton more memory. And yet, what's really weird is, sometimes the memory thermometer displays a HIGHER value than commit charge... so it must be based on some weird page coloring thing.

So, it seems that Apple is hyping a new tablet, and Microsoft is counter-hyping some new tablet PC's with Windows 7 preinstalled.

It's been fun to watch the Tablet PC form factor fail to succeed over the last couple of years. It'll be even more fun to watch Apple succeed at it while Microsoft continues to fail.

Why does this happen?

I think Microsoft's fatal flaw in this space is that they continue to insist that tablets MUST BE PC's. A device that isn't a PC shouldn't behave like a PC. This is what I've been saying about netbooks for a while now. Don't think "small pc" -- think "large mobile device." Or perhaps "cloud access terminal" if you want to be all buzzwordy about it.

If a device isn't a PC, it shouldn't look or act like a PC.
