The “Mojave” Experiment

Microsoft Windows Vista which doesn’t need any introduction to anyone who is a computer user was released last year. From the day it was released until to date it has gone through a lot of criticism (most of these critics were non Microsoft users & i wonder how they criticize without even using the product) mainly on the performance as Windows Vista needs more RAM than Windows XP (of course it needs more memory for the mind blowing new features it has).

The Mojave Experiment asked “What do people think of Windows Vista when they don’t know it’s Windows Vista?”, this is the only way we get an honest opinion from people. There were around 140 participants who had never used Windows Vista before and they were shown certain demo features from the next Microsoft OS. What these participants didn’t know was that Mojave was actually Windows Vista :).

The results were great almost everyone was really really happy about Windows Vista.

The results stats can be found from the following link,

Microsoft Windows Sysinternals – BGINFO

In the midst of my hectic schedule (this is the reason why i couldn’t write for he past 4-6 weeks) I thought of writing about the Background Info (BgInfo.exe) tool (thanks to a close friend of mine who really gave me the idea to write about this tool).

If you are to look at Sysinternals, Sysinternals started in 1996 and was acquired by Microsoft n the same year. Sysinternal is a set of tools for Microsoft Windows which is freely available for download at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/default.aspx

Ok! Let me come to Background Info (BgInfo) is a tool which displays all of the system information to the logged in user details on your computers wallpaper. By installing this you don’t really have to perform alo’t of clicks and type certain commands here and there to get information such as the computer name, IP address, logged in username, domain name, OS version, boot time, CPU, RAM, disk space and so on.

I was wondering on how the virtual pc’s that comes with the Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) has the username, computer name, domain name, and the IP address in the default background and how it changes every time you log in with different user accounts, This was done using this particular tool (Bginfo) which is a 360KB download.

Try it out!! You will be impressed!!

Until Next time! Good Day, Good Night and Adios 🙂
