Jim Allchin, the co-president of platforms & services from Microsoft, published this open letter to all windows developers.
Are you ready for Windows Vista? We know the world is! Barring any unforeseen quality issues such as bugs around data corruption, resiliency, or security, we remain on track for business availability of Windows Vista later this year, with our consumer launch in January. Those of you who have started using RC1 can see how stable the product already is. We are very close to being done.
Windows Vista is going to give you, developers, new opportunities on a scale you haven't seen since Windows 95. Industry analysts predict that some 200 million people will be using Windows Vista within the first 24 months of launch. We're rapidly approaching launch, and then millions of people will be looking for applications. People will flock to software that is new, compelling, and "cool." You have GOT to be ready for this opportunity. We have invested heavily in both the .NET Framework 3.0 and traditional Win32 APIs in Windows Vista. With Visual Studio you can create applications that are visually stunning, connected, workflow-enabled, and secure. You can get a preview of some of the great features in the upcoming next release of Visual Studio that will make development for Windows Vista even more powerful. And the new line of Microsoft Expression products will make it much easier for developers and designers to collaborate on creating great experiences for Windows.
More than 1,000 companies are engaged in our early adopter programs, and some of the initial work I've seen has simply blown me away. People will just love these applications - from new DX10 games to cool Sidebar gadgets to new rich visual enterprise applications. Some of these apps are mind-bogglingly cool. And, some of the best work is being done by small companies that many of you probably haven't heard of, so the opportunities for changing the world are clear. We've created a showcase so you can see what some of your peers are doing.
What do you need to do to be ready? First of all, make sure your application is compatible. We have made tremendous investments in Windows Vista to ensure backwards compatibility, but some of the system enhancements, such as User Access Control, changes to the networking stack, and the new graphics model, may require code changes on your part. You should work hard to run as standard user.
We've got tools to help you:
- The Application Compatibility Cookbook will give you in-depth information on the new capabilities in Windows Vista and how they may affect existing applications.
- The Windows Vista site on MSDN includes the latest technical material and gives you pointers to our upcoming worldwide launch events.
- Visit the Innovate on Windows Vista portal to get access to tools, resources, and Windows Vista logo program information. I strongly encourage you to apply for the Certified for Windows Vista Logo.
As I said, the opportunity will be tremendous. If you want to ride the wave we're creating with Windows Vista, the best way is to have your application ready by the time we ship! And that is very soon.
Co-President, Platforms & Services
You can get evaluating Vista RC1 for you organization by trying out these top things as outlined on TechNet now:
I have received the invitation email from The Soapbox on MSN Video Team, that means the new user-uploaded video service on MSN goes live. While by now, this is a US-only beta.
This is really beta service, not "beta" labeled service:D, the team is looking for beta testers to help improving the service.
I Know there are many people have gotten Vista RC1 but don't have a CD-KEY, or even you want get Vista RC 1 but you have no way, now you can apply the one online.
via Windows Vista RC1, you should have a live ID first, you can download Vista RC1 in three language version(English, German, Japanese), and get a CD-KEY, the CD-KEY is unique with live ID.
Don't hesitate, let's go.
Why beta? You released some projects while you feel them aren't quite ready to go, so you can tagged "beta" because they aren't prefect for users yet.
Why beta? It's related with some known web 2.0 principles, liked "release early", "feedback quickly", "update frequently" and so on, because there is no site can meet users' requirement exactly, there is always changing, changing, and carry on.
Why beta? That means you promised you will keep tracing your user's feedback and improving your service, sure, that equals promises.
So, you can labeled your site "beta" early, but if your site doesn't meet the web 2.0 principles especially "update frequently", please removed the label, otherwise like Fred said:
"Just don’t label your web applications beta."
As we know, Office 2007 beta has the feature that saving document as PDF file or XPS file, while in early Jun, cited legal pressure from Adobe, Microsoft announced it would drop this feature when Office 2007 ships, and promised it would be add-ons separately download, it's available in three versions now.
BlogML, an open source project hosted on CodePlex, is an XML format tool for storing the entire content of a blog, you can use BlogML as a way for archiving or transferring content from one blog to another, even from one blogging engine to another. Now, BlogML 2.0 available here.
There are currently several blogging engines that provide support for BlogML including:
I'm remembering the time I had been posting blogs on Pebble blogging engine, an open source project in Java hosted on SourceForge, so very strongly recommended blogging engine, you can download your all content on blog in a zip file. While now, BlogML do the generally way.
You can find the Best Stuff in the World here now :D
Driven by community, the Best Stuff in the World provides recommended items / services arena with glossy images, gradients, sliding accordion effects, and the ability to counter recommended items with your own. the Best Stuff in the World sounds a pretty good place as a mix of social-network with wiki style.
I started work on IronPython almost 3 years ago. My initial motivation for the project was to understand all of the reports that I read on the web showing that the Common Language Runtime (CLR) was a terrible platform for Python and other dynamic languages.
How do I get IronPython Integration in Visual Studio 2005?
First, you'll need to go download the latest release of the Visual Studio SDK (April 2006). You'll need to register on the VSIP members site. You can register for free as an affiliate level member. Also note that you'll need to agree to the VSIP license.
What version of Visual Studio do I need? Can I use this with an Express edition?
Unfortunately, no. The Visual Studio Express editions do not support extensibility (addins & packages). This is a limitation of the Express products and not a limitation we are placing on the sample. You will need Visual Studio Standard or higher to build and use the sample.
Enterprise Library is a library with a set of application blocks for enterprise development provided by Microsoft that based on .NET Framework. The v1.0 for .NET Framework 1.1, and v2.0 for .NET Framework 2.0.
It's really fantastic, since so many enhancements.

It's a really nice news for us that Windows Vista on build 5600(v5600-16384) out of box as Release candidate 1!!!
As per usual, we’re initially rolling out the code to the TechBeta and TAP programs alone, while MSDN and TechNet subscribers will be offered access next week.
That's real cool!

Yes, many of solutions of exporting to Excel from HTML should using Excel.exe process, it's a perfect way to access Excel model but with a hard problem that handling the Excel.exe process at web server side. while some few ways without Excel is too simple, indeed, is XML format file.
There is yet another way to treat the data as Excel format without Excel now.
At HTML code:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<!-- work sheet name -->
<!-- data to export -->
At the server script code:
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"
That's all! as you see, the key of this way is using XSD to access the Excel model.
