Entry: My ignorance Sunday, February 22, 2004



In my last entry I had wrote about Knoppix and how I wanted to make Microsoft a similar thing, but I was in ignorance. Although having heard of Windows PE and Bart PE , I never actually looked at what it was or what it did. But as I was thinking about Knoppix today in the afternoon, I just thought of putting a search on Google and this is what I found. Looks like Bart's PE is giving GUI interface as Microsoft PE gives a command prompt to start with. Although have not looked into details of both the products, one thing I read was Microsoft PE is not available to public. Well I am glad now I know that there is something available even for Microsoft OS and I discovered something new today.

True Rob, but than this increases my security concerns over it, but it is too cool thought.

Yeah, but the really cool thing, IMHO, is booting off a USB drive (hopefully the schedule will allow them to do this work in Win PE). The thought of booting a machine into a usable OS (with a GUI) from my keychain is just too cool.
