If your remotely attached to the world of technology, you will know that Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 went into gold build status (GA) jut over a week ago.
This week itâ€™s the turn of Windows Mobile 6.5 to go gold.
Iâ€™ve been using Windows Mobile 6.5 for quite some time now and itâ€™s great â€“ A serious improvement over Windows Mobile 6.0 and 6.1 and a much welcome UI refresh and polished approach.
For anyone thatâ€™s interested, I use Miriâ€™s WWE 6.5 ROM from here:
The most recent available 23017, and much to my dismay I have been unable to confirm if this is the gold build announced this week, however Miri recompiled the ROM on the 3rd of August so it is highly likely.
Things Iâ€™m looking forward to are seeing the Windows Marketplace as this has been missing from previous WM 6.5 builds, and to see if Live Mesh works properly (see my bug https://connect.microsoft.com/LiveMesh/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=481053).
As for the remainder of the week? Well lots of people on the blogosphere and the Internet have been posting about Windows 7 RTM and changes etc â€“ Some people have only just caught up
Me? Iâ€™m holding out for Friday when TechNet customers are going to be able to officially get their paws on the product (thatâ€™s me) so that I can rebuild to x64.
Iâ€™m sure I will blog about my experiences with the RTM build of Windows 7.
