It's the end of a year filled of dreams, disillusions
Some dreams will change, disillusions will be part of the past but not
forgotten and hope is renewed.
Happy 2013 everyone!!
Here's a great and free resource for anyone wanting to take the MCSA certification path:
The MVA or Microsoft Virtual Academy has some very interesting videos and self assessment tests that will complement your study.
I advise you to start with the Windows Server 2012 Technical overview.
I had to do it!
Microsoft has cleverly designed an intuitive and easy to use interface for touch sensitive devices.
However, I must disagree completly on keeping the same philosophy when it comes to desktops and laptops wihtout a touchscreen.
In my view, the OS should detect the presence of the touchscreen and use the correct UI.
Because quite simply, its terrible to use the W8/Metro interface with a keyboard and mouse setup.
Fortunately there are some companies out there that got this.
For instance Stardock, the very well known Software company in the Windows Mobile era thanks to their Pocket Blinds skinning software, have come up with Start8 which is beautifully made as you can see.
Ahhhh, its nice to have that familiar look and feel all over again!
OH! And it works great on Windows Server 2012!
The path to certification is long and requires time and a lot of work.
But the first setps are already done:
Install Windows Server 2012 Evaluation on my T61p, and then get some VHD's running on it.
Lets see how well it will handle the abuse!
From my last post on this blog...
The main reason was that working as a Vendor for Microsoft Portugal left me litle time and space to make interesting posts.
But now I'm back and with a different perspective and contents.
This translates my transtition from being focused on mobile solutions to the begining of a new stage in my career where I am going after an MCSA certification.
A lot will happen in the mean time and I hope to keep a track on my progress here, so stay sharp!
