Another Windows Genuine Advantage screw up

  • Interesting People; By David Farber (Posted by grouch on Jun 19, 2006 6:37 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Microsoft
I was not amused to find out that the reason it had stopped monitoring was that at 3am Windows Update had loaded the Windows Genuine Advantage module, then rebooted the system after installing it, then refused to allow the system to start up until someone clicked on the box warning that the Dell supplied Windows Xp was not genuine.

Book Review: User Mode Linux

I’ve read and reviewed a number of books where the author was describing someone else’s innovations. Finally I am looking at a text where the creator describes how to use his creation. I suppose it’s a little like Dr. Frankenstein writing a manual on how to build a person from “used” parts but that sounds a tad macabre. While it’s not unheard of to find an accomplished software developer who can also write, it’s not exactly a common occurrence. With that thought, I opened up “User Mode Linux” and dug into the first chapter.
