Installed Windows 7 today

2 June 2009

I installed the RC of Windows 7 today on my company laptop. Not as the actual OS, but inside of Sun’s VirtualBox. (While VMWare may be better, I like the small footprint of VirtualBox, especially on my not-at-all-state-of-the-art laptop.)
I only assigned a 8 GB disk for Windows 7, of which the OS uses about 5,5GB. The rest should be enough for the testing I’d like to do. When I need more space, I can swap to VirtualBox image to an external harddrive and increase it.
As I haven’t worked with Vista yet, I can’t actually say what which feature is new – so far, everything looks quite new to me 🙂

Firefox 3

I’ve been using Firefox 3 (Beta) for some time now due to the update that came with Ubuntu 0804, but haven’t looked that much into the new features.
Now, that the final release is available, I looked a bit into it.
Here’s a helpful website for tips and tricks: http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/tips/

I especially like the tagging of web sites and the new shortcuts for accessing the location bar (CTRL + L) and the search bar (CTRLK + K).
