     I strongly recommend that you download and install VistaBootPRO 
from http://www.pro-networks.org.  This utility provides a convenient 
means of editing the boot process, as well as simplifying the removal of 
the any boot process, should you tire of dual-booting.

Concerned about Window$ 7 and security?
March 25, 2010 (Computerworld) Two researchers yesterday won $10,000 each at the Pwn2Own hacking contest by bypassing important security measures of Windows 7.

Each contestant faced down the fully-patched 64-bit version of Windows 7 and came out a winner. Vreugdenhil used a two-exploit combinati...

a new Window style?
Hi, I saw an application, whose menu bar is shortened into an arrow only. To its right there are some tool buttons. If you click the arrow, the whole menu bar shows up. Is it a new window style added to VS 2005? What is it? Or maybe is it just either from a 3rd party tool or a home grown redrawing routine? Your help is appreciated.

Mobile CRM & Non Windows O/S
Hi, we are a SW company specialised in Enterprise solutions, and we are evaluating whether to start selling/customising Microsoft CRM.

Without a Mobile CRM SDK, can we sell them MS CRM as an enterprise solution that will work on their Blackberry units? I would immagine t...
