Migration blues with the MacBook Air - Volume II

I took delivery of my CTO MacBook Air yesterday and had a flashback to original Air's release in February 2008. Unfortunately, it wasn't the gorgeous design or super-thin and light profile, it was the craptastic Migration Assistant software that ships with MacBook Air.

Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 can significantly reduce the cost and complexity of Windows Server virtualisation, although management tools are not included. This, together with deployment issues, could limit the appeal of Microsoft's standalone hypervisor beyond the enterprise market.

Can you upgrade an old XP PC to Windows 7? Should you?

My friend Lisa has a four-year-old Sony laptop running Windows XP. This machine, once a triumph of Sony hardware engineering, could easily be deemed ready to retire. But after careful consideration, I decided it was worth upgrading to Windows 7. I tried both a clean install and a new edition of Laplink’s PCmover software, which is specifically designed to ease this sort of migration. The XP-to-7 odyssey was an interesting one, with surprising results and several lessons I can share with anyone contemplating a similar adventure.

9000 PCs in Swiss schools going Linux only

9000 computers in Swiss schools have been dual-booting Windows and and Ubuntu for some time now in anticipation of guidelines from the Switzerland's Department of Public Instruction, whose motto is "Long Live Free Software." The Tribune de Geneve featured a story on Friday about the elimination of dual boot capabilities in all of these machines and a migration exclusively to Linux (the original story is available here in French or here in English courtesy of Google's language tools).

What else did Evans survey say?

We're going to see a lot more desktop Linux, despite the current lack of hardware sales. We're going to see a major migration to Linux, once organizations gain more knowledge of it. Apache is the very model of a modern major software outfit.

Blue Pill: The first effective Hypervisor Rootkit

Unlike SubVirt which relied on commercial virtualization technology like VMware or Virtual PC, Blue Pill uses hardware virtualization and allows the OS to continue talking directly to the hardware. Commercial virtualization software has to emulate full I/O functionality from storage to networking to video and it would be exceedingly simple to detect driver changes. Furthermore, it would take a fairly complex physical to virtual migration to get SubVirt installed on the system. Blue Pill on the other hand can do an on-the-fly install and simply shift your Operating System from direct control of the physical computer to a virtualized state living under the control of Blue Pill. Blue Pill then acts as an ultra-thin Hypervisor that lies dormant most of the time using virtually zero overhead and waits for "interesting" events such as keyboard input.
