    The 9th ICSB-2008 in Gothenburg, Sweden

    12th September 2008

    It has been quite a time since my last serious and long post. On the one hand, summer is vacations time – so I’ve been to one in Turkey; on the other hand – the long-awaited ICSB-2008 conference finally took place in Gothenburg, Sweden, on August 23-27 (or 22-28, counting in tutorials and workshops).

    Update: it appears that conference domain name http://www.icsb-2008.org/ was not maintained after the conference, so I had to remove all the links to that website (which now appears to be owned by someone not related to ICSB). However, there seems to be a mirror of ICSB-2008 at http://www.gmm.gu.se/groups/icsb08test/.

    Synopsis: in this post I present a personal-perspective report on the 9th ICSB (with a condensed ICSB-2008 photo-report in my gallery).

    Vista Ultimate has a Linux benefit

    12th September 2008

    One of the benefits, offered exclusively by the Windows Vista Ultimate (not even by the Windows Vista Business), is

    running UNIX applications (via SUA, Subsystem for UNIX Applications) , which provides higher flexibility for Windows workstations.

    Where is the world going? :)

    And how soon will all the Windows users (not only Ultimate Users) benefit from the higher flexibility by running UNIX applications? :)
