Windows 7 – odgrzewany kotlet ? (2009)


Submitted by marcin on Thu 29-Oct-2009

Skazany na sukces ?

W 2007 roku Microsoft wprowadza nowy system. Opinie o nowym systemie są dosyć pozytywne, natomiast negatywne są krytykowane (chociażby raport Petera Gutmanna nt. DRM). Z czasem okazuje się, że system nie zdobył zbytniej popularności, a sam Microsoft przyznaje się do tego, iż nie wszystko było zrobione poprawnie.

Mamy 2009 rok. Wielu użytkowników dalej wykorzystuje Windows XP (można przyjąć, iż jest to przynajmniej wersja z 2004 z Service Packiem 2), który ma już swoje ograniczenia. Czy sytuacja z brakiem akceptacji nowego „dziecka” Microsoftu może się powtórzyć ?

W tym artykule chciałbym wskazać w szczególności na pewne słabości/ciekawostki dotyczące Windows 7 i zastanowić się, jak duży sukces może odnieść.

Why you should not touch Windows 6.x and Linux (2009)


Submitted by marcin on Sun 11-Oct-2009

I’m using various operating systems for making some tasks. In this article I will show, that some solutions used in currently in the most popular or known (in my opinion) operating systems are obsolete. I hope that it will start some discussion here and there…

To be clear: I don’t think, that everything everywhere is wrong. But Windows environment seems to collapse after Windows XP and we still won’t have Linux too popular in desktops (because of some fundamental problems). Details are provided below.

N82 review (2008)


Submitted by marcin on Wed 30-Jul-2008

In many places you can read about about excellent features of Symbian devices. This article will show some their advantages and disadvantages in normal life on N82 example... In many places I will speak about iPhone and other too...

Battery

The more advanced phone, the shortest battery life. This is how we can describe devices created by Nokia and many other manufacturers. My question is: can't be created and produced for example 1600 mAh batteries (like in PDA) for them ?

Hi,

In the time, when we have various widely commented things on the world (Olimpic Games in China, ACTA regulations about ending P2P, Microsoft Windows Vista), Gammu history still can continue (although it's difficult - see info here) and continues.

Today there was released new release 0.40 for Gammu+. It brings new important features:

I would like to speak shortly about differences between Gammu and Gammu+ now. This will be linked from main page. This is my opinion and you don't have to agree with it...

First Gammu - released with GPL2 license is currently lead by Michal. Quite big and supporting many devices. You can have worse support in Windows than earlier and I don't like some things inside, but development goes forward. Michal will give probably also less for Nokia devices than I.

Gammu+ 0.38 is out. I have added configure script, which can enable Bluez AFTER USER ACTION. You have written many times, that source after patching is GPL2 licensed. Please note, that in my opinion it doesn't break GPL2 - if you will have patched source, you can remove Bluez driver (yes, this can be very easy separated) and release source under other license:

Gammu+ 0.37 is ready. What can I say ?

For example: you can make MMS receiving gateway with it now (tested on 6111).

It's very close from the state, where will be rock stable, fast and will have support for all important functions. I estimate, that I will reach it in December.

And what next ? I'm not sure. I have read about Nokia reactions for info about breaking Series 60 security. I'm not sure, if they will love software, which is faster/smaller/better than their own PC Suite.

Gammu+ becomes much more complex: I had played last times and worked on adding database support. And here are results: daemon for receiving SMS/MMS. It's working with free PostgreSQL database.

Do you want to put your messages into it and read from www ? Yes, it's already done and will be in 0.36.

If somebody will be interested, I could work on it and add also sending SMS from www (over such daemon)
