    No dual booting on same disk for me, had heck of a time with Win8, Alpha and beta, screwed up my W7 big time.
    I always use a second HDD when I load a second OS. Plus I backup the original HDD first. Learned that one the hard way.

    I have been a big fan of system imaging programs since I first heard about them around 10 years ago. It sure saves me a lot of grief being able to restore an image when something goes amok for whatever reason!

    New Windows coming in late September -- but which one?

    It looks like we're due for a preview of Windows sometime in late September. As InfoWorld's Eric Knorr noted last week, something new is brewing with Windows in Redmond, and it looks like we'll have a chance to see it in four to six weeks. At this point, though, there's very little consensus about what will appear.

    ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley kicked off the speculation a week ago with her usual well-connected, anonymous, likely coordinated report from unnamed sources:
    Microsoft is aiming to deliver a "technology preview" of its Windows "Threshold" operating system by late September or early October, according to multiple sources of mine who asked not to be named. ... "Threshold" is the next major version of Windows that is expected to be christened "Windows 9" when it is made available in the spring of 2015. "Threshold" is expected to include a number of new features that are aimed at continuing to improve Windows' usability on nontouch devices and by those using mice and keyboards alongside touch.
    Tom Warren at The Verge pegs the announcement date as Sept. 30. Paul Thurrott hasn't yet chimed in, as he usually does, but he's been on vacation and is due back today.
    Foley is very careful to maintain a semantic distance between "Threshold" and "Windows 9." Many people think the terms are synonymous, but longtime Chinese leaker Faikee continues to maintain that they are two separate products, possibly headed in different directions.

    Right now I would love to see it come out on the 16th but the 30th would be fine.
    In the mean time I have two classes that both start on the 15th so that will have me busy.

    1. Functional Programming Principles in Scala
    2 .An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python

    I don't know how much play time I'll have with Win9(Threshold) but I'll try to make some.

    I'm going to try and wait for the official release. It all depends on who here decides to be a guinea pig and how it goes for them. If it looks safe I may byte.
