Nokia’s smartphone products has been on the decline (in popularity) since 2009.¬† Blame that to marketing and the company’s complacency.

Since¬†Nokia announced in February 2011,¬†that its smarphones will adapt the Windows Phone OS,¬†I have been eagerly anticipating what smartphones will come out from the Finnish phone company.¬† Of course everyone already knows about the Sea Ray, but I’m still looking¬†forward to more¬†‘Win-Kia’ phones.

Anyways, a lot have already been reported on the net.¬† At the end of the day, I still want a Nokia phone to replace my old ones… I already am sold to getting the Meego running¬†Nokia N9 – I am getting the Black one and a blue one.¬†But I am also getting me a Windows phone made by Nokia.¬† It may or may not be the ‘out-ted’¬†Nokia Sea Ray, but as long as it’s made by Nokia, has a front facing-camera, and a¬†native VOIP/SIP support, I’m sold. ūüôā

While waiting for my next Nokia phone, I will kill time watching some ads about my next smartphone…

The Mojave experiment, the "new" Microsoft Operating System

The Mojave experiment, the "new" Microsoft Operating System

¬†MOJAVE pronouced: m…ô-ňąh√§-vńď, mŇć-

  • a member of the North American Indian people formerly living in the Colorado river valley in Arizona and Nevada and California
  • a desert area in southern California and western Arizona
  • Mohave: the Yuman language spoken by the Mohave
  • Codename of Microsoft’s “new” operating system.

Windows Vista, is arguably the most despised (by critics, fan-boys or wannabe’s)¬†operating system¬†Microsoft¬†has developed. In an attempt to re-educate the “mis-informed”, re-vitalize the image of Windows Vista against skeptics and eventually¬†instill¬†acceptance, mostly¬†from Windows XP users who are afraid to migrate due to incompatibility issues brought about by Vista.

On a personal note, I can say I am one of the early adapters of Windows Vista. I was part of the technical BETA testers of the then codenamed, Longhorn operating system.

I never had any problems with Microsoft Vista. All of the programs I use are compatible with it. The only two incompatible hardwares I have are my Linksys WPC54GX and WMP54GX v2¬†that Vista Ultimate 64-bit version refuses to identify. It is not Microsoft’s fault, though. It’s Linksys’. Linksys, up to now¬†will not come up with 64-bit drivers on Vista and even mostly on Windows XP 64-bit edition.

The most appalling thing is that Linksys support told me that they do not see any reason to¬†release any 64-bit drivers for¬†their adaptors! Hell, even during the BETA stage of Longhorn, Linksys’ official statement was that 64-bit drivers are to be announced soon.

Now this is one concrete example why potential consumers are mis-informed about Windows Vista. They readily blame Microsoft who is not at fault here, rather than pin the blame on the hardware manufacturers that turns a blind eye to its consumers.

If any of you has a working 64-bit driver specifically for these two adapters, please leave a comment. You may also help Microsoft by¬†informing working or non-working hardware/software by visiting the Windows Compatibility Center¬†ūüôā

I’m sure some of you may react negatively to this as my attempt to promote Windows Vista – I don’t care ūüėõ What I know is that, Microsoft does its best to reach out to its consumers.

I’m proud to have partaken in its early stages of developtment. I am proud of that opportunity.
