Windows Vista RTM No Longer Supported

As of today, Microsoft has quit supporting Windows Vista with no Service Packs a.k.a. Windows Vista RTM. It is recommended to upgrade to Windows 7 or at least install Service Pack 2 for Vista.

I doubt any of you are running the RTM version of Vista (let alone Vista itself), but we just wanted to send out a friendly reminder anyway.

Huzzah! The beta build of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 has been upped onto torrent sites. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. No one?

It looks like a pretty recent build, with the compile date being March 27th. Geek Smack was brave enough to download and install the leaked Service Pack and they’ve even taken quite a few screenshots of the installation process. They specially noted that the installation was much quicker than service packs on Vista, which is to be expected since anything is faster when it doesn’t run on Vista.

For those curious about getting in on this, look for the full build string, which is 6.1.7601.16537.amd64fre.win7.100327-0053.

As for me, I can live without SP1 for now. I’ll be waiting until the official release.

Starting up something new and trying to get people to use it is no easy task, but Microsoft has managed it fairly well with their new Bing search engine. According to Nielson, Bing reached 12.5% market share in February, which is an all-time high. To add to that, Bing saw a tremendous 15% increase in market share from January (10.9%) to February (12.5%). Microsoft could easily catch up to Yahoo! where they have a 14.1% stake in the market and hold the number two position behind search engine giant Google, who holds a 65.2% share.

Microsoft Talks SP1 for Windows 7

For all of those silently waiting anxiously for a Service Pack update for Windows 7, you’re in luck because Microsoft is in talks about it right now! However, your celebration might be a bit premature because it seems that SP1 for Windows 7 won’t include anything more than a few minor updates, as well as a Remote Desktop update that uses RemoteFX (which is a Windows Server thing and won’t effect us Windows 7 users).

For Windows 7, SP1 includes only minor updates, among which are previous updates that are already delivered through Windows Update. SP1 for Windows 7 will, however, deliver an updated Remote Desktop client that takes advantage of RemoteFX introduced in the server-side with SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2.

There’s no word yet on any kind of release schedule, but we can be sure that SP1 will be available conveniently through Windows Update when the time comes.

Internet Explorer 9 Demoed at MIX10

At MIX10, Microsoft unveiled details of their ninth version of Internet Explorer. It’s only been in development for three weeks, so what Microsoft demoed was an extremely early IE9 build, but we got a sneak peek at HTML5 support, but Microsoft seems hesitant at the moment until HTML5 is actually a go. Their new Javascript engine seems to be catching up to Chrome and Firefox speed-wise, but still has yet to beat them. Improved CSS support will also be a focus, as well as hardware acceleration, which will use DirectX and the GPU to improve graphic and AJAX rendering.

It looks like Microsoft is finally stepping up to the plate with their browser. It’s still to early to tell if IE9 will be a contender and Microsoft hasn’t said anything about¬†availability, but you can download a platform preview of IE9 here.

UPDATE: In a Q&A session following the keynote, Dean Hachamovitch, General Manager of the IE team, has said that IE9 will not be supported in Windows XP.

Good news for all prospective buyers of Microsoft Office 2007. If you buy the 2007 suite between now and September 30, 2010, you’ll be able to grab Office 2010 for free when it’s released this June. We’re not sure why you would want Office 2007 anytime after June, but who knows what crazy things people do these days.

Remember a couple weeks ago when we told you about a Windows 7 update that would check to see if your copy of Windows 7 was legit? Well, it’s out now and ready to be executed. If you wish to not install, just click on the list of Important Updates and it should be listed in there. For me, it was already unchecked, so I was set to go, but it may checked by default for others.

For those of you still grasping onto the release candidate of Windows 7, your time will come to an end very shortly. Microsoft sent out an email today reminding those still using the RC that they better think of other plans. On March 1, 2010, computers running Windows 7 RC will begin shutting down every two hours. Work will not be saved during these shutdowns. On June 1, 2010, Windows 7 RC will fully expire.

You can, in fact, continue to still use the RC in two hour increments, but you’ll also have to put up with a black background with an annoying message on the desktop, as well as periodic notifications alerting you that your copy is no longer genuine.
