WINDOWS 7 CODEBASE WILL BE UPDATED RIGHT TILL 2026

Good news to Windows 7 users! Operating system will be updated until at least of winter 2026, despite yellow pressed tabloid propaganda that such thing will not happen.

The main trick here is that Windows 7 is based upon Windows NT 6.0 codebase. This is the same codebase upon Windows 2008 R2 was build.

WHO IS BETTER MICROSOFT OR APPLE?

Short answer will be: NONE OF THEM. But if you are not satisfied with that and interested in topic: read below. In this quick blip-note i’ll explain my subjective opinion regarding big corpos and their influence on technology in general. Let’s start from the barebone roots of the problem. There are two people who brought home computing to masses. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Who are they? First one cheaply bought DOS operating system from [Gary Kildall] and resold it to IBM for a waaaay bigger money.

HOW TO SETUP CUSTOM FONTS IN WINDOWS 7 CONSOLE

As a hardcore user of [dual-panel orthodox file manager] i always suffered because of sucky look of default console fonts. Native preloaded font list has quite scarce selection, if you ask me. To fix such disappointment you’ll need: install desired fonts by means of windows control panel copy EXACT FONT NAME fonts section in control panel paste it into registry key into following branch HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont note that every new subsequent font should be added by a key with added one zero to registry key name reboot computer to apply & enjoy!

MOVE SWAP FILE AND TEMPORARY FOLDER INTO RAMDISK TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE

So you have tweaked every possible thing and want to squeeze more performance from your workstation? I’ll tell you how to do this if you have plenty of spare RAM and don’t know what to do with all those memory chips. Placing swap file and temporary folder into RAM is a quite good decision after all. Ram disk is already old idea to improve speed of disk input/output operations. Some time ago even [GPURamDrive] was introduced to masses, although it doesn’t receive popularity because of slow speed in comparison to generic DDR3/4 memory.

HOW TO FIX "UNABLE TO RENDER ERROR" 0x80131501 IN VEGAS PRO 21

Vegas video montage software is widely known as pretty glitchy application especially if we are speaking about latest versions. Newest Vegas 21 Pro is no exception. I run into problems almost instantly. Right after i’ve decided to render video clip. Upon export attempt application showed me error: 0x80131501 How typical! To fix things up i just took DLL library [RenderAsDialog.dll, which is responsible for export dialog] from previous Vegas Pro 18 [sub-version 284 to be precise] and substituted original file with above mentioned.
