So what does this mean? For some reason, Microsoft has not given us desktop virtualization software that can run 64 bit guest (even though Hyper-V can). So I think this left Microsoft a choice. Get 64 bit guests added to Windows Virtual PC, recommend developers use a non Microsoft virtualization technology, or get SharePoint working on Windows 7 and Vista. Now, adding 64 bit support I am sure is quite an undertaking and they definitely don’t want to recommend a competitor’s product. This means that making SharePoint work directly on the developer’s machine the obvious choice. After all it runs on top of IIS and IIS is pretty similar between Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Vista (yes, I do know there are differences).

AdmiralXyz writes “I’m a university student, and I like to take notes on my (non-tablet) computer whenever possible, so it’s easier to sort, categorize, and search through them later. Trouble is, I’m going into higher and higher math classes, and typing “f_X(x) = integral(-infinity, infinity, f(x,y) dy)” just isn’t cutting it anymore: I need a way to get real-looking equations into my notes. I’m not particular about the details, the only requirement is that I need to keep up with the lecture, so it has to be fast, fast, fast. Straight LaTeX is way too slow, and Microsoft’s Equation Editor isn’t even worth mentioning. The platform is not a concern (I’m on a MacBook Pro and can run either Windows or Ubuntu in a virtual box if need be), but the less of a hit to battery life, the better. I’ve looked at several dedicated equation editing programs, but none of them, or their reviews, make any mention of speed. I’ve even thought about investing in a low-end Wacom tablet (does anyone know if there are ultra-cheap graphics tablets designed for non-artists?), but I figured I’d see if anyone at Slashdot has a better solution.”
