W7 share peaks at over 8% on Christmas Day

Must have been a lot new Windows laptops under the trees, and netbooks
in the stockings!

The share peak was up another 1% point in a week.

While Apple jumped 20%  OMG!
This is simply the beginning of the end for Microsoft.  You can't argue 
with fact.  Consumers want choices and security.   Microsoft offer's 
neither.
It should be interesting, when I'm old and gray - circa 2080 - I'll be 
102 and I'll tell them where I was when Microsoft asked for government 
assistance.  :)

We live in interesting times.

I'm using real world data, 20% is an estimate.  We will see where the
actuals come in for Apple.

Anyway, W7 has gone from 2% at the end of October to 8% at the end of
December.  That's a 300% increase.   In perspective, the 2 month Net
App share increase for W7 is more than the total share for Apple.

Shared Memory & Semaphores
Hi; In a research project, I want to use shared memory with semaphores. First I have to create an environment for interprocess messaging. I'm thinking of having a main process which creates a big shared memory and manage all messages which are sent by objects inside the environment. Is this method effective for a high loaded messaging area? I heard about using ports can cause loss of data. And, is it ok to have a main process which will get all the messages and distribute them to target processes? Mehmet "Mehmet Turker" <mturker@hotmail.com> ha scritto nel me...

Any consideration of the fine details comes in second to that one inescapable conclusion. This is an unstable operating system.

The move from Windows 98 to 2000 brought that stability to the masses. Now, users are tired of operating ...

sharing solutions
Hi, we have one copy of FMD7 in the company (and probably 1 or 2 copies of FM5). Is it possible to develop a solution that can be used simultaneously by several users in the network?

Do we need several copies of FM7 just to run the developed solution?

problem with proper export of Greek_el UTF-8 from mysql database (dreamhost)
Hello, I use mephisto (blogging engine) as my default blog. I'm trying to take a dump of the mysql database, via mysqldump but, when I restore I clearly see that the UTF-8 encoding is broken. The mysql version is 5.0.x and the encoding should be UTF-8. Although I can clearly see latin chars (english posts) I can't see Greek chars(greek posts) correctly. I found a PHP script that was made for Mysql 4.x that somehow fixes the issue but it doesn't export the entire database, so I can't use it.

DM420 / Ingres 2.6 and Shared Cache
Can someone put my mind straight on DM420 output... for Ingres 2.6... I am right in believing that if you have shared cache/multiple dbms servers, the "counters" output of DM420 (not size stuff) is for that DBMS server not the shared cache ? So to gauge hit rate - you'd sum FIX-CALLS from each DM420 output, then do the same for HITS and divide.... (for a given page size of course)... Just a simple question - but questioning a few things at the moment ;-) Cheers Gary At 10:10 AM -0800 12/10/07, ghingres@yahoo.co.uk wrote: > Can s...

Personal File Sharing on startup disk only?
