Ok, with all the security blogging I’ve done this week, I figure its time to do a post about something a little different.
There is a bunch of Beta software out there, and more coming soon. Currently Windows 7, Exchange 2010, Firefox 3.5 and Ubuntu 9.04 are all out in beta form. Exchange, unfortunately, I don’t have a real way of doing proper beta testing on or reviewing.
Windows 7 I will be getting with the RC1 on May 5. I want to test the heck out of it and post a review as I do test it. I figure while I’m working with Windows 78, I can check out the new beta of Firefox and see what is up on that.
Finally, Ubuntu 9.04. Yes I run Ubuntu on one laptop and an old Celeron machine. The old desktop won’t be getting 9.04, but the lappy definitely will. I’ve been wanting to do a wipe and reinstall of the laptop for a while now, and this looks like the perfect chance. Mind you sometime today 9.04 is officially released, or so it was announced earlier this week. If it takes another day or two before I get my hands on it, then oh well.
So much going on, and while I do all of that, I am waiting to see which way the wind blows for the next version of office this week. Its been announced that the beta for it later this year will be open to the public, then announced that it woun’t be, then announced that it will be. I think someone at Microsoft needs to get on the ball with a decision on that one.
