    The link for “Tech ARP’s BIOS option of the week – Adjacent cache line prefetch” is going to “Microsoft Windows 7 SSD Performance Comparison Rev. 1.1”. At least it is on the right site.

    As far as this virtual desktop stuff goes, you could just use litestep, which has been doing it open source for 12 years. I’ve run it over Windows 2000, XP, and now 7. I have 6 virtual desktops (you could have 2, or 4, or 37 if you want). Every alternative to litestep seems to think you want like-windows in the same virtual desktop as opposed to putting whatever application wherever you want (you can of course define hotkeys to sort them if you wish). From what I’ve seen they also sort the tasks menu (alt-tab) by desktop as well, requiring more work to switch to an application in another desktop.

    Oh yeah, LiteStep also lets you customize your entire desktop with taskbars, widgets, shortcuts, define hotkeys, create as many custom popup menus as you want, etc…and switch between themes whenever you want a different set of taskbars, widgets, shorcuts, hotkeys, popups, etc…

    I guess people are just afraid of having to manually do everything or simply using someone else’s themes.

    A software change for WiFi access points that can more than double the battery life of phones using it? Nice. Hopefully we’ll see this get rolled out into the open source router firmwares at least.

      That or maybe even more widespread (think “free Wi-Fi” places)…. one can hope! 🙂
