Oracle Databases on Windows Vista

Monday, 5 March 2007

Vista got released in November last year, and I've now come across the first "big" application that doesn't currently run on Vista.

Oracle will support Windows Vista but most likely not completely until the second half of 2007!

I would have thought a company the size of Oracle could dedicate a few resources to running their stuff on the beta releases of Vista, so that it wouldn't be such a big step to get it all working.

At least I don't do much Oracle stuff, but it does happen occasionally (like today), where it is a problem.

Google Maps for Mobile

Wednesday, 28 February 2007

I saw this mentioned in the Google newsletter today, and I've installed it on my HP iPAQ rw6828 Windows Mobile device.

It works really nicely - you can get the maps or satellite views too.

If I had GPS, then it could use that too.
