11/18/2009, Looks like tomorrow is set to be a big day as Google will most probably preview its Chrome OS at a special event held at its headquarters in Mountain View, California. Apart from providing some technical background information while parading demos of the Chrome OS, attendees will also benefit from a complete overview. Guess the Chrome OS is not quite yet ready for prime time action at the moment – […]
11/12/2009, Who would’ve thought that Windows 7 and Ubuntu are able to live together in harmony? There’s a way to set up your dual boot machine in order to obtain benefits from both sides without missing a beat. All you need to do is follow this guide and you’re good to go – some working knowledge of computers and operating systems would help greatly during the process.
11/12/2009, While we talked about Samsung adopting its own Bada mobile operating system for future handsets yesterday, this doesn’t mean that Samsung will drop the Symbian platform completely, as they will continue to cooperate with the group Symbian group. We’re guessing this makes perfect sense, especially when you want to reach out to the widest range of customers possible.
10/23/2009, Word has it that the Windows 7 Student Upgrade edition is already running into problems, where a fair number of students have experienced issues when installing the downloadable $29 student upgrade edition on machines that run 32-bit Windows Vista. Apparently, the file doesn’t really unpack in the proper manner, where it ends up as a single executable file alongside a couple of bundles that just don’t work instead of being […]
10/16/2009, Android 2.0 will bring a number of improvements that includes the native support of Microsoft Exchange (contacts are often not synchronized today), the Maps application will display more data, but still does not have pinch and zoom. The web browser is said to be almost as fast as the iPhone 3GS one. In the video department, the integration with YouTube has been improved, especially when it comes to video uploads, […]
10/02/2009, Strange as it may sound, it seems that the Longsoon netbook could very well be the first netbook on the market that will be powered by the long-awaited Google Chrome operating system. While Longsoon 2F processor was originally built to function with Linux-based software, this has opened up an avenue for Google Chrome OS to sneak in since it is built on top of a Linux platform, making it a […]
09/23/2009, Check it out – the Acer Aspire One D250 netbook does not only run on Windows XP, but is full well capable of booting up in Google Android as well. The latter takes around 20 seconds to boot up, and when shutting down, it does so almost instantaneously, which is a far cry to what Windows XP can offer. Depending on your preference, you can pick the operating system of […]
09/09/2009, Jolicloud is a customized Linux-based operating system which was specially developed for netbooks, and it will run best on those that feature Intel’s Atom N270/N280 processors and GMA 950 graphics chipset – which pretty much covers the entire gamut of netbooks at the moment if you ask us. Too bad for those who are running on the Intel Atom Z series of processors though for the moment, although the next […]
09/02/2009, Looks like the folks at BBG have uncovered a story on hacking your Kindle to run Linux on it, alongside a version of X Windows. Nice to see the Kindle being pretty beefy in this aspect as a powerful little Linux box, where some tweaking will enable it to handle virtually any document file type alongside the possibility of running Ubuntu on it.
08/21/2009, Microsoft has announced that users will be able to give their latest operating system, Windows 7, a good test up to 120 days before they are required to fork out the dough for it. The four month trial period will end with a request for an activation code that offers proof that the software has been purchased. Originally, the trial period is supposed to last for up to 30 days […]
08/10/2009, Could robots run on a universal operating system in the near future? Perhaps – the Robot Operating System idea looks as though it will happen in due time, and we hope that it will help bridge gaps between various robots since they are more or less unique at the moment with each one built from the ground up with proprietary operating systems. The Robot Operating System aims to change that […]
07/23/2009, Operating systems are getting more and more sophisticated as hardware becomes more powerful, so it is no surprise to see Google’s Chrome OS to feature their very own O3D plug-in that allows browsers to use hardware-accelerated 3D graphics. This will clearly usher in a new age of web applications, turning them into even more intensive and sophisticated software which will more or less be closer to native apps. We wonder […]
07/08/2009, While Google Chrome OS is hot news on the Internet, one ought to pay attention that Microsoft has already taken a number of months to develop something in a similar vein known as Gazelle, targeting web-based applications. Apart from its name, very little else is known about it, but hopefully Gazelle will live up to its namesake by being fleet and graceful without stumbling over blue screens. [Translated Page]
07/08/2009, While Microsoft is losing market share when it comes to operating systems, that doesn’t mean we can discount the software giant’s role in this sphere for quite some time to come. TmaxSoft, however, will be challenging the traditional Windows platform with its own operating system known as Tmax Window. It has taken over 300 researchers more than 5 years to develop the system, and TmaxSoft claims that Tmax Window will […]
