Thesis is done and filed…

…now waiting for a confirmed date for the defense. Looking forward to present the results and answer some nasty questions :)

Writing the thesis was a great experience. I could have worked for much longer, but the 3 month time limit is a good thing, cause otherwise it would be a never ending story!

Now I have time again for my private life, my job and (not to forget) blogging.

As Windows 7 showed up on the MSDNAA for download end of last week, I couldn’t resist and install it on my desktop and my netbook on Sunday. It actually runs quite smoothly – except of some immature drivers for the netbook (notably the Intel GMA500 display driver).
The current Vista driver works, but crashes with a BSOD after a couple of minutes when turning on the Aero (glass) UI. At least the standard theme works pretty stable.

Funny enough, Microsoft does not have any Bluetooth headset drivers included anymore, so I had to install the Broadcom (Asus package) BT-Stack to get my headset working with Skype and the SIP phone…

Will test a nice little device driver tool this evening (Device Doctor) that is already tested on Windows 7. Let’s see what that will find…
