Every time I talk with a UNIX zealot about the advantages and the drawbacks of Windows he always says: "Windows needs to be often restarted".
Recently I was reading about MacBook Air anche RemoteDisc and I had to notice that if you install RemoteDisc services on a Mac you need to restart the Mac before using RD... well this is not necessary if you install the same services on you Windows PC!
So, which operating system needs to be restarted?! It seems that it isn't Windows!

In this and in the next posts I'm giving you some tips to keep your data away from others view. Let's start by definitely erase files you have on your hard disk.
If you think that when you empty your recycle bin the files you deleted are gone forever you're terribly wrong, maybe you can't get the file you deleted with regular system utilities, but with a simple search you can find a big number of software that does this work.
Wait, don't throw away your pc, the solution isn't to go back to the paper era. If a sheet of paper can be burn a file on a hard disk can be shred.
One of the best utilities to do this is Eraser that allows you to perform a single file wipe, a folder wipe or even the unused disk space wipe. One of the best thing of this software is that you can schedule file deletion in order to always have your disk clean and your secret safe.
Stay tuned, in the next weeks we are going to talk about cryptography, steganography and how to secure your communications.

If you're looking for a useless application you're in the wrong place, I listed only the most useful applications that you can find for free on the net.
Do you think that Mac OS exposè is a good way to have a look on your crowded desktop? With this tool you get an easily customizable exposè like application with some extra feature you will be glad to discover.
When you run on battery is important to save as much power as possible. One way to do this is to set your CPU working frequency and voltage.
Since you're reading this post I suppose that you've got so much ID and password to keep in mind. Usually this isn't so easy nor so effective (you're like to select always the same password).
You'd better save your passwords on a encrypted file and remember only its password.
Do you think that IE should have a download manager, a tab history, ad-blocker and a more user friendly way to change proxy? Install IE7 pro and you'll find this feature (and many others) coming on your browser!
Did I forget something?
Have fun with this geeky comic series

GNU/Linux guys can't stand that Windows Vista is better than their operating systems, and are searching the most improbable test.
Maybe he should have thought that testing Windows Vista and Cedega with games developed in the pre-Windows XP era.
I'm not doing to install this software on my machine, I'm going to trust the result I found on the Internet (For GNU/Linux I'm assuming that our friends did the right things).
Soldat: It is a 2002 game with some bugfix, and actually it seems that someone's Windows Vista is not freezing.
Darwinia: maybe there is a reason if a for Windows Vista version was released! On that update there was the porting from OpenGL to DirectX. Did you know that in Windows Vista the OpenGL layer completely depends on graphic drivers you have? So purely OpenGL performances depends on Nvidia, AMD (Ati), Intel and any other GPU maker.
You can criticize Microsoft idea to exclude an OpenGL layer not the OpenGL performances on Windows Vista which are not a Microsoft mistake.
Blackthorne: since you're running it with DOSBox I guess you read that and edited the configuration file.
Civilization 4: You got a compatibility warning. But if you patch the game guess what happens?
You got your Slashdot quote, GNU/Linux fanboys are happy, Windows Vista users managed to get all work and even experience better performance on new games.
I've noticed that diarrheaBot uses a GeForce FX graphic card. I've a GeForce FX 5600 Ultra (128 MB of VRAM) on one of my desktop PCs and and I can confirm that Nvidia has dropped driver support for this series before Windows Vista was released. The driver Windows Vista uses for these graphic cards is a legacy one. Another fault in diarrheaBot review.
