a couple bits of tech news ...

First of all some news on bluetooth. Apparently on the 21st of this month the Bluetooth SIG or Special Interest Group is going to announce specs on the new Bluetooth 3.0 and this is what they say about it:

"Transferring an entire music library, a complete DVD, a vacation's worth of photos, all within seconds at the touch of a button and wirelessly will now be possible."

sounds pretty good to me.. it also seems they will be able to do this by bringing bluetooth to the 802.11 wifi. not sure how that will work exactly but im excited to see this happen.

now changing topics to the new windows operating system coming out. windows 7. critics and analysts are saying that windows 7 is gonna be another vista flop.. which is really bad news for them. vista was and still is the worst OS they have ever made. vista is failing and will continue to fail.. linux and probably mac are reaping the benefit of this failure. when windows 7 fails in a similar way.. microsoft is going to continue to lose their OS market share and linux is gonna keep grabbing more.

so here is my goal. im not planning on going to mac anytime soon cuz its still not impressive enough for all the cost. and honestly.. probably never will be in my opinion. so.. that means there is really only 2 options.. stick with xp as long as you can.. (which may be shorter than you think.. as they are officially ending support for XP tomorrow) or learning linux.

as you can probably guess.. im going to end up doing all my personal computing in linux.. (again, lol) so the goal is to be able to be completely efficient in linux by the time windows 7 is out. so here we go.. sometime soon ill be reorganizing all 177 gigs of all my data and then ill be blowing away windows and diving into linux again.. we will see how it goes.

  1. I would love to jump into linux if there were only more programs that ran on it. Maybe as a media server someday. But that bluetooth business sounds great, I'll have to look into that more.
    PS - I love the new Microsoft ads that bash Mac, praise HP, and never mention Microsoft

  2. Yeah gotta agree with the Mac. I like some of the stuff they do but I can't figure out what is so amazing that makes them cost twice as much.
