I never realised till the other day… (OSX Mountain Lion in a VM)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, August 9, 2012, In : Software 

 
I'm not a Windows fan boy in the least bit, as I've more then had my share of gripes with various versions of Windows for various different reasons. But credit where credit is due, Windows 7 and from what I've experienced of Windows 8 thus far has pretty much been the bomb on systems that for the main part were pretty reliable for driver support whilst living in the UK and France. Speed for the most part was barely an issue and with version 8 having proven itself to be faster and even lighte...

I've never really had a problem with Mcafee anti virus software since it is generally a pretty decent app that certainly seems relatively light on a host install. That is until now. People always accuse Microsoft of being all too legit and closed source which they are in many respects but it was only recently when I used my own USB stick on another system that had Mcafee anti-virus running on it did I realise that Microsoft's Security Essential was pretty chilled out despite the fact it dete...

Limitations of using VMware player vs. the full version VMware workstation

No dedicated memory allocation options for VM usage in VM player

Having dedicated memory allocation for VM usage is useful for both increasing the performance of your VM(s) and security. The reason for this is that without it memory resources are swapped by default as part of your main host OS system memory. This also means that it will also be subject to the main host swap file system between the RAM and the hard drive which requires even more additional read/write access time between the RA...

VMware workstation 8 or VMware fusion as its called on the Mac…(…they do exactly the same thing)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, March 15, 2012, In : Software 

 
I could say its faster, which it is. But isn't that always the case with each new release and update of it as overall performance usually degrades over time for some unknown reason. But then again version 8 since its release has stayed consistently fast whilst running my VM's for the main part thus far whether I'd been using the workstation or the player build. The workstation build can potentially perform much better then the player build on certain hardware configurations due to additional...

6 months of premium AntiVirus & anti-spyware cover for a penny

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Monday, November 1, 2010, In : Software 



As far as anti-virus protection goes in Windows MS Security Essentials real time scanner seems to pretty much have everything locked down when it comes to zapping any potential bugs and threats whist barely impacting on system resources as it does what it does in the background. But if you have a burning desires to go premium it seems that one of the officially recommended and trusted Microsoft Anti-Virus partners has decided to put down 6 months of premium AntiVirus and Anti spyware protecti...

I never knew I needed OS virtualisation till I used it...

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Friday, October 29, 2010, In : Software 




Since discovering virtualisation I haven't looked back. Its sounds a lot more technical then it actually is but its basically the notion of running a whole Virtual computer (or numerous virtual computers) inside your current computers OS environment. Yes like a computer inside a computer. It does this by partitioning off system resources to then run them as a if they were a completely separate machine inside your OS environment.

Obviously it was created for more serious mission critical a...
