I received the "Microsoft Student 2006 DVD", and installed on my pc. To my surprise, it’s so integrated, it’s soooooo wonderful!! For example, when I type "qingdao" into its search bar, it lists the map of Qingdao, and the introduction of qingdao as following:
 

Qingdao, also Tsingtao or Ch’ing-tao, city, Shandong Province, eastern China. It is a major naval base, an industrial center, and a port on the Yellow Sea at the entrance to sheltered Jiaozhou Bay. The port, which rarely freezes over, serves the industrialized northern China Plain and was expanded in 1976 to include an oil terminal for large tankers on Huang Island. The leading manufactures of the city include textiles, railroad equipment, rubber goods, fertilizer, and chemicals. Tsingtao beer, brewed here since Germany leased (1898-1914) Kiaochow territory, is marketed internationally. Shandong Oceanography College is located here.

Qingdao was transformed by the Germans from a small fishing village into a modern, European-style industrial port in the early 20th century. It was twice occupied by Japan, during 1914-22 and during 1938-45. The port was an important United States naval base from 1945 to 1949. The development of heavy industry was promoted when the Chinese regained control of the city in 1949, with petroleum-based industries becoming of major importance in the 1970s. Population (2000 estimate) 2,316,000.

And it also integrates the dictionary, Graphing Calculator and so on. All in all, it’s the Encarta worth to purchase!!!!

I installed the WindowsXP 64bit Edition on my pc for the first time. Following is my Pc’s hardware:
CPU:Althon64 3000+(E3)@300*8
MB: DFI Lanparty UT NF4-ULTRA
RAM:Apacer DDR400 512M*2
Graphic Card:Colorful X700 CT-2(What the hell company it is.Fan damaged and core bruned.So I have to spend ¥20 to buy a "S3 ViRGE GX2" PCI card instead.)
Monitor:LG 1780Q
PSU:FSP400-60GLN
Hdd: ST3160023AS  (160 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA)
        ST3160021A  (160 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/100)
        MAXTOR 4K080H4  (80 GB, 5400 RPM, Ultra-ATA/100)
        Just because of the last 2 PATA-Hdd,I have to reinstall 6 times. I’ll explain the reason detail later.
 
First time, there is someting wrong with my CD-R. And then I re-burned a CD-RW. But the following installation was fail too. It’s just because of those 2 PATA HDD as I said before. I use the SATA Hdd as my Primary Hdd, and boot OS from it. But the bios always set the priority of PATA higher than SATA, so when it finished copy files to Hdd, it also write the MBR and boot record to the PATA. After I tried several times, it works finally. But wait a second, why my frash rate is so terrible? Then I find myself that there is no drivers for my Graphic Card!!!!!  :(    
I have to return XP 32bit Edition finally. 
It is 2:52 now, it’s time to go to bed. I’m sooooooo tired…….

早就收到了microsoft的invitation,但是因为过年在家里生了一场大病,挂了半个月的吊瓶,一直没有时间和精力试用。再加上从家里回来以后忙于公司的前期准备工作,直到今天才开始用MSN的新版本:Windows Live Messenger,Version 8.0 (Build 8.0.0566),总体感觉是比原来的漂亮多了,比较简洁。看来微软在准备推出Vista的同时已经在对其周边产品做新的尝试和调整了。还是比较喜欢现在的这个版本的!!
