    • Abstract:
      This article presents answers to various questions posed by executives related to the computer industry during an online eSeminar on the operating system Windows Vista developed by Microsoft Corp. One cannot change the time without being an administrator. Because of various legal reporting requirements, the date/time stamp on files and e-mail messages can be sensitive information, so a standard user isn't allowed to change the date or time. When Microsoft first started talking about Longhorn, it gave the impression it was going to do a complete rewrite. At this point, though, Vista is being built on top of the latest version of Windows Server 2003, Microsoft's most robust OS. But much of the core OS has been rewritten. The biggest effort was spent on going through all the code and eliminating defects. File and Registry Virtualization should work no matter which version of Windows the program was written for. This security feature is specifically aimed at "legacy" programs. Windows Vista will dual-boot with the operating system Windows XP. One can use a partitioning utility to create an area of unused disk space into which Beta 1 will install and then install by booting from the Beta 1 CD.
