В общем рассказываю. С недавнего времени мама стала жаловаться на отсутствие интернета. Посмотрел, инет есть, роутер нормально устанавливает VPN соединение и рабочая станция через него и мой коммуникатор тоже нормально выходят в сеть. Посмотрел мамин ПК, вроде бы все ок. Роутинг нормальный, запускаешь консоль, все пингуется и почта ходит нормально, даже телнет по GET выдает странички. Из самой же винды ни в какую. Думал, может в винде дело, запустил на ноуте винду, та же история.
Вот топология домашней сети:
Router (linux+WLAN_AP_asus500g based)
\------LAN ПК debian [OK]
\------LAN ПК Windows (пиратка спецом поставил) [OK]
\------WLAN qtek 9000 [OK]
\------WLAN ПК мамы XP+SP2 (лицензия)[Fail] Но в консоли все ок.
\------WLAN ноутбук Toshiba XP+SP2 (лицензия) [Fail]
\------LAN тот же ноут та же винда [Fail]
\------WLAN другой мамин ноут windows [OK]
\------LAN домашний сервер FreeBSD [OK]

При работе роутера в режиме простого маршрутизатора и запуске клиентов pptp на рабочих станциях все отлично.
Фантастика, хоть с бубном пляши. Из консоли работает из GUI нет. Есть специалисты по M$? Может у меня руки кривы?

"Перспективная файловая система и документация для разработчиков (SDK) выложены на сайте для подписчиков в разделе «Tools, SDKs and DDKs». Скачивайте и изучайте преимущества новой реляционной файловой системы для Windows." Взято с сайта Microsoft.

Все-таки решили они свою WinFS продвигать. Правда, вряд ли много разработчиков будут полностью переписывать свои программы ради еще одной забавы Билла Гейтса... А выпускать ось с WinFS, для которой не написано по существу ни одной программы он тоже не станет. Замкнутый круг. Не зря же они из Vista WinFS убрали =).

Hi, I'm going to Oglethorpe University, and one of my 4 courses is Business Law I.

Well, as I do have a long-lasting interest in politics, as well as in computer technology, this particular class has inspired me to concoct this particular idea that combines law and open source in a potentially earth-shaking manner. This is what I was writing just a few minutes ago:

The anthropomorphism continues...

Kai-Fu Lee's testimony in the Google-Microsoft trial clarifies some points made in his deposition about MS's failures and setbacks in China.

Today `Lee testified that one of the lowest moments of his career with Microsoft was a conversation in which Gates yelled at him and said the company had been "f-----" by the Chinese people and its government. Lee did not clarify the context of Gates' comments.'

According to Lee's declaration on August 30, Ballmer shook hands with the Chinese government several years back on a $100M outsourcing plus $20M investment deal that senior management found it hard to live up to, and so they amended it to $55M in jobs and $60M in investments in Chinese IT. The filing further explains that a major part of Lee's work on MS's international business since coming back to the states has been keeping MS from committing further missteps, and that internal power struggles among up to 20 Microsoft groups vying for control in China were one of the major reasons he left for Google.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer

Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer vowed to "kill" internet search leader Google Inc. in an obscenity-laced tirade, and Google chased a prized Microsoft executive "like wolves," according to documents filed in an increasingly bitter legal battle between the rivals.

I heard MS is using some Linux for their next OS.
Is this true?
