I’ve always loved Linux and its fluid Mutiple Desktops in Fluxbox. Even Mac OSX and its mutiple desktops is very mature and a time saver when working with mutiple applications. I know there are a few applications that allowed the use of mutiple desktops on windows, but this is an official release from Microsoft’s Sysinternals team.

Just some heads up about what you can and can’t do with Windows Desktops. First off, if you select the ALT modifier and the function keys (F1,F2) then watch out for ALT+F4 😀

Also, you if you make a change to your quick launch, like add or remove anything. Then you won’t see it on your other desktops. You will have to reboot your machine, restarting Windows Desktop doesn’t resolve the issue. If you like using FireFox and want to use it on two different desktops, it won’t work out of the box. You can open another Firefox Window, but you can’t move it in-between desktops. Firefox uses profiles, unfortunately if you want to launch another Firefox profile you need to actually create a new profile. The hiveminds.co.uk has an article “Running Multiple Versions of Firefox on Windows” which will assist you with creating a new profile and getting up to four different Firefox processes.

Boeing’s unmanned A160T Hummingbird helicopter takes flight

Not the first Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) made. But the Boeing A160HT Humming Bird should be one of the best once further tests and simulation in combat missions is completed.
Boeing's unmanned A160T Hummingbird helicopter takes flight -

Filed under:


It's been a few ticks since we've seen Boeing send an atypical aircraft into the friendly skies, but the firm's latest helicopter has successfully completed a 12-minute test flight without so much as a pilot on board. The A160T Hummingbird unmanned rotorcraft is a turbine-powered "warfighter" that aims to provide "intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance coverage" in locales that could make even the most calloused veteran queasy. During its time in the air, it reportedly met every objective set for it, and while we've no idea how soon this thing will be lifting itself up, it'll eventually reach speeds of up to 140 knots and stay airborne for up to 20 hours before returning to base for a pat on the wing.
