What’s UP #1

Me Again whit some news, my friends know me you just tell me "Hey What’s UP" and here come the news :D. So as today I’m gonna write a POST titled "What’s UP #nnn" every now and then and I’m gonna tell you what is really up, may you like it and if yes, just leave me a comment and I’ll continue it.
 
Anyway, in the past week or so, these was the good news:
 
  • Windows Server 2008 RC1 released, and here is the build number 6001.17051.071121 I’ve tested it, it is upgradable from November CTP 6001.17042.071107 and the version is v.667. This buld is as good as it must be, and something else, your Beta 3 or RC0 key is still valid and will be valid to JUNE 2008 instead of April 2008, so If you are using Server 2008 or Server 2003 I recommend you to upgarde to this version, and as they’ve said this would be the last BETA.
  • Yahoo Messenger for Windows Vista is in PUBLIC BETA now, and better news is it is working under Windows Server 2008, WOW, I’ve tried the web installer and it didn’t work but then I’ve downloaded the installer version 2007.12.06.421 and wow it is working and I gotta tell you that worth the waiting. This is the direct link to download it http://download.yimg.com/ycs/msg/dl/vmsgr/b1/us/ymsgr_vista_setup.2007.12.06.421_us.exe
  • I’ve see that Babylon Pro 7.0.0 (r16) been released, I don’t know when, but I got it in past few days, so I consider it as NEWS. This is great and the best part is it also add a feature right into IE and it is "Spell Check" YEAH, I mostly use IE to write POSTs here and the problem is Windows Live Space Craft team didn’t add the spell ckeck I’ve request and here the Babylon come handy. I’m telling you this great product become even Greater.
  • Windows XP SP3 RC1 comes out today, but you know I HATE XP.
  • Office 2007 SP1 comes out today, and I didn’t approve it on my WSUS 3.0 yet, but I’m gonna, but you know today microsoft release something about 70 updates and they are huge in MB amount I think 1200~1300 MB which is huge for me with 256KB ADSL.
  • Office Live Workspace http://workspace.officelive.com/ said to be in PUBLIC Beta but I still didn’t have the chance to get in, but it must be great.
  • I’ve seen that Microsoft Windows Live Team at last decided to let go of @live.com, yes go here http://get.live.com/getlive/overview and register yourname@live.com, I’ve got mine now sadjad-AT-live.com WOW, no one got that, I’ve tried lots of my friends names there none of them was free, so go fast and you may got the chance just like me.
  • Windows Live Messenger 2009 BETA 9.0.1407.1107 just got out, yeah check it out from http://connect.microsoft.com This is just a little bit lazy on signin but other things are very good, you can be loged in from different places (different devices) at the same time, or you can have animated pictures for your self, and the thing is if you set an animated picture in Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Sign-in Assistant of yours will show the animated picture which is very good, but still the same Emoticon, do you feel the same, they are very old, you may just take a look at new Yahoo Messenger for Windows Vista and you’ll know what I mean about old emoticons, they are UGLY in Live Messenger but SEXY in Yahoo Messenger.
  • Some hardware news, DELL XPS ONE and DELL Latitude XT the 12.1 inch long waited Tablet PC of DELL and Western Digital Passport Portable 320GB is now out for you.
P.S.: I just want to add one thing about Windows Server 2008 upgrades from RC0 or Beta 3 to RC1, I use Daemon-Tools http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/download.php?mode=ViewCategory&catid=5 as Virtual CD/DVD drive for mapping .iso or like so files, the problem is after the upgrade you’ll need to reinstall the software.
