Diskeeper Corporation announced today that their End User Licence Agreement (EULA) has been updated to allow an additional complimentary license of Diskeeper 2009 for Microsoft’s elite and business customers of Windows 7’s XP mode.
The latest Microsoft operating system will use desktop virtualization in its Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions so that customers will be able to run Windows XP compatible applications on their Windows 7 machines. Windows XP mode will be delivered as a free, out-of-band update to encourage users to make the switch to Microsoft’s forthcoming operating system.
Diskeeper Corporation’s recent EULA update signifies additional help to Microsoft and hardware OEMs to support customer upgrades. In the future, Windows 7 customers will be able to purchase Diskeeper Corporation’s products together with a complimentary licence specifically for use on XP Mode only.
A really interesting green computer technology I found is Userful Multiplier. It’s where multiple people can use the same computer at the same time each with their own monitor, mouse and keyboard. This saves a lot of electricity and e-waste. A company called Userful recently set a virtualization world record by delivering over 350,000 virtual desktops to schools in Brazil. They have a free 2-user version for home use too. Check it out: userful.com
