This means they can test and evaluate the product in order to make decisions about when and if to migrate to the new platform, which officially launches Oct. 26.
TEST YOURSELF: The Windows 8 Quiz
Businesses without a TechNet subscription can get the final Windows 8 version Aug. 16 if they have a current Microsoft Software Assurance contract. The software will be accessible via the Microsoft Volume License Service Center. On the same day, the software will become available to Microsoft Partner Network members.
On Aug. 20, Windows 8 access is given to Microsoft Action Pack Providers who build services and products around Microsoft products. On Sept. 1, volume license customers that don’t have Software Assurance contracts can get Windows 8 via Microsoft Volume License Resellers.
Beyond all these upcoming deadlines, Microsoft this week officially released the final Windows 8 build to manufacturers, meaning they can start installing it on Windows 8 hardware, prepping for the official launch when devices with the operating system loaded go on sale.
This is just the start of a potentially busy time for Microsoft customers. Also released to manufacturer this week were Windows Server 2012 and Internet Explorer 10, both of which are also of interest to Microsoft shops. Server 2012 launches Sept. 4 and anchors what Microsoft describes as a cloud operating system. this is a tight integration between Server 2012 and Microsoft’s Azure cloud services, making it simpler to set up flexible data centers using traditional corporate infrastructure, private clouds and public clouds.
Microsoft knows it’s ticking off its OEMs
“Our PC hardware products face competition from computer and other hardware manufacturers, many of which are also current or potential partners,” the Form 10-K says. “In addition, our Surface devices will compete with products made by our OEM partners, which may affect their commitment to our platform.”
That sounds like Microsoft expects the OEMs to be less than enthusiastic about slapping Microsoft operating systems on the hardware they make — not a good frame of mind for them to have if you’re launching a new operating system that depends in large part on OEMs licensing a lot of the software.
Windows Store opens for apps
Along with the release of the final version of Windows 8, the Windows Store is now accepting Metro-style applications from developers. There is a vetting process by Microsoft to approve any app that is accepted for sale in the store with the idea that if properly written, Metro apps will work well on Windows 8 machines, won’t slow them down and will be less likely to contain malware.
Every once in a while I try some new version of Linux, some overhauled or updated “distribution” of the operating system that supposedly improves the user experience. and inevitably I get frustrated with it because, well, it’s just not Windows.
Not that I have mad love for Windows, mind you, it’s just what I’m used to.
Zorin OS 6 is an Ubuntu-based OS that comes closer to re-creating the Windows experience than any other Linux distro I’ve tried.
For you Linux neophytes out there, Ubuntu is one of most popular and heavily developed versions of Linux. Zorin OS uses Ubuntu as its core, but coats it with a decidedly Windows-like interface.
That means you get something akin to the start button in the lower-left corner of the screen, and a programs list and search tool that pops up when you click it. In the lower-right corner there’s a notification area, clock, volume control, etc.
These and other familiar trappings make it easier for Windows users to make the transition. I can’t say Zorin is an exactWindows 7 replica, but it does a pretty good job re-creating the look and feel of its interface.
Interestingly, you can use the Zorin Look Changer to choose from a variety of other interfaces, including Windows XP,Mac OS X, and the Linux-standard GNOME 2. (Some looks, like Mac OS X and Ubuntu Unity, require Zorin Premium.)
The OS comes with a ton of useful software, including Google’s Chrome browser, LibreOffice, Thunderbird, and GIMP. you also get PlayOnLinux, which allows you to install and run a wide variety of Windows programs (including iTunes).
I’ve been using Zorin OS on and off for the past few months, and overall I’m impressed with it. the only downside is that certain underpinnings reveal its Linux core, and those areas can be confusing. In other words, the Windows coating goes only a couple layers deep.
But if you’re looking to experience Linux for yourself, revive an older PC, or outfit your kids with something that’s familiar, virus-proof, and school-friendly, Zorin OS is without question one of the best Linux distros currently available. It’s certainly one of my favorites.
To get it, you’ll need to download either the 32- or 64-bit version, then burn that ISO to a blank DVD (something Windows 7 can do natively). you can also create a bootable USB drive via a utility called UNetBootin.
As for actual installation, you can boot and run the OS straight from the DVD or USB drive; install it alongside your current Windows installation (which will result in a dual-boot configuration); or just wipe whatever you have now and overwrite it with Zorin. whatever you decide, I think you’ll have some fun.
Webmasters who will be keen to become fastidious concerning cost effectiveness, convenience and also control of installed programs now have the alternative for getting Microsoft windows Virtual Private Servers offering ideal answers to these kinds of specifications with an affordable cost. Several site owners currently have switched to Windows os Virtual Private Server sort of web hosting since they can be expensive a lot less than server colocation; yet are capable of doing with similar effectiveness and may attain the same positive aspects as that of aforementioned.

Reviewing all three components as a single entity is difficult. Each has its own purpose and for the time being, each has its own pluses and minutes. So for the purposes of this review, I’ll break down the three individually.
Let’s start with the handset. like I said, it’s a pretty cool-looking phone. Lightweight and with an attractive (and comfortable) form factor. The handset is mostly plastic but it feels much , much sturdier. nothing about it seems even remotely flimsy. it feels good in your hand, it feels almost unnoticeable in the pocket. Not bad from that point of view.
The Android operating system is getting better every day. as an open-source platform, it’s a perpetual work in progress but still, it’s a spectacular OS. I’m a big believer in the theory that iOS is for anybody, Android is for people who can think for themselves. With that in mind, its disappointing that the Atrix ships with a number of unnecessary, preinstalled programs. Most of them can be removed, but it’s still There’s no need to get into a Android vs. iOS breakdown, so we’ll move on to what makes the OS tick.
Under the hood: The Atrix is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and comes complete with a gig of RAM and 16 gigs of storage. (You can expand that to 32GB with a microSD card). It’s a powerful, fast phone.
Display: A 960×540 capacitive touchscreen comes covered with Gorilla Glass from Corning. It’s sturdy. I fell asleep on the couch, phone and car keys on my pocket, and not so much as a scratch.
Connectivity: It’s all in there; 801.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth and AT&T’s version of 4G.
Camera: The main camera, located on the back, is five megapixels but unless you’re recording a major life event, it more than adequately replaces your point-and-shoot. The front camera is fairly weak, but it’s not intended for capturing precious moments, anyway. I did like the 720p video capability quite a bit.
Battery: Battery life wasn’t as much of a concern as I had heard. With a fully-charged battery, I ran YouTube for about 2 hours and 20 minutes before the warning message first popped up. Not too bad — slightly better than most Android handsets I’ve sampled.
The HD dock
A nice touch, especially with the optional Motorola (or any USB/wireless) keyboard option which turns it in to a quasi-desktop computer. In short, the dock is a way to enjoy your media library anywhere and to that extent, it is effective.
The dock has three USB ports and an HDMI output on the back, along with connections for your stereo system. For $129, it’s pricey, but it might serve a purpose for those with a significant amount of digital media.
More than anything, this was the component that excited me the most. Unfortunately, it left me the most underwhelmed.
The Webtop OS environment is a hybrid version of Ubuntu. I was completely unimpressed with the software – it was slow and buggy and wondered why Google’s Chrome browser wasn’t included in the package.
The software does do the basic tasks you’d need from an ultra-portable machine but as designed, it’s somewhat difficult to navigate.
From a physical standpoint, the laptop is attractive with a full-sized keyboard, similar to that of a MacBook and a very large (almost too big) trackpad. Sadly, the trackpad is limited in its usefulness and doesn’t include scrolling of any kind. The buttons are large but somewhat difficult to use.
Ultimately, the laptop is not by any means a bad addition. but at $500, it’s a bit pricey. there is plenty of room for improvement. Hopefully, Motorola and AT&T find a way to address the issues soon because the laptop could be an absolutely wonderful addition to your gadget collection.
The concept is solid: an integrated phone/entertainment/productivity product – though the execution leaves much to be desired. Fortunately, the problems facing the Atrix can be solved easily, with basic software updates, and won’t require further investment from the consumer end. take the additional accessories out of the equation, though, and the Atrix is a powerful handset, possibly one of the finest Android options I’ve tried. at $99 (with the usual two-year contract), the price is right.
