Previewing Windows 10

So yesterday I enrolled into the Preview program for Windows 10.
After downloading the ISO, used the latest version of Virtualbox (as I read some people having issues with older versions than 4.3.12), and it installed flawlessly.
Read more about the latest features here:

Every now and then the system will ask your opinion on a user experience, like after you watch a video in full screen.

Well, let's keep previewing.

Now with Cyanogenmod 10.1.2

So I've been trying out a few ROMS on my Galaxy Nexus every now and then (AOKP is one of the best), and I couldn't say why but I had skipped Cyanogenmod all this time.

Well finally I got to flash it last Saturday, and I must admit that you have to believe the hype when you read that is one of the best all around ROMS I have ever tried, it feels fast, responsive, fluid, and it has many neat features:

I though by the time I installed all my previous apps it would be as good as my previous ROM, but surprisingly it still feels much more light on its feet, so don't hesitate giving it a try.

Happy Sys Admin Day!

Maybe next year this important holiday will be observed at my office.

30 minutes left on the clock and then to start celebrating, cheers!

Can Gnome 3.4 Win Linux Users Back?

For a while I was a big fan of Ubuntu, which was also my first Debian based distro; it was also the beginning of my preference of Gnome over KDE. But then Unity came, and although I gave it a fair try (or a full weekend using it), I did not like it very much; I figured I would try Gnome 3 instead, but it just didn't click, so I gave LXDE and XFCE a try in the meantime.

Today I saw at ZDnet an article about Fedora 17 and one of its most awaited features, Gnome 3.4, which looks like it might be faster, won't require a 3D Video card to run properly (good news for VMs) and it will incorporate lots of new features, some of which it borrowed from Ubuntu.

I guess I could install the new Gnome on a Debian VM and give it a run right now, but I think I will wait a few more days (see the counter below) and get the new Fedora with Gnome 3.4 and run the Live CD; it will make for a good rainy day activity.

Spiceworks, you gotta have it!

It's hard to remember a time without Spiceworks...I've only been using it for a couple of years, but I wouldn't want to go back to the time without this great IT tool...oh, and did I mention it's free?

If you haven't tried it yet, do yourself a favor and visit:

Once running, it will map your network, list your devices (and lots of information about them), installed applications, warn you when servers are down for more then a few minutes, when printers are low on many features to list here.

Then you have the Spiceworks community, where all these amazing IT professionals exchange ideas, some very technical, some very funny, and everybody loves to help.

So don't wait any more, download it and install it on a VM so you can check it won't be sorry.

And now, time to relax, weekend is here, yeah!
