Microsoft licence cops kick in TWICE as many customers' doors as rivals

Ian Collins

Why let them in? They tried for years - every time they phoned or emailed, I said I was too busy. Went on for literally years and eventually they gave up.

Server virtualization – what could possibly go wrong?

Thumb Up

Updates of the virtual o/s

We use multiple redundant ESX machines with SAN backends. The biggest challenge we see is updating the ESX o/s and SAN firmware. Especially the SAN's - we setup an openfiler box just so we can update the SAN's. Factor: time!

Dell Latitude E6400 14in business laptop

Ian Collins
Thumb Down

No linux

Bought one of these at work for myself - but no Linux drivers for network, screen (didn't try hard on that one), wifi - so I gave it away and kept my D620.

Looks ugly too.

Keyboard backlight didn't work and after 2 motherboard changes, we told Dell to give us a new one. (not a fault of the laptop design - just a friday afternoon box).

Might give it another try in a few months time.
