Windows 7 : “Windows XP Mode” (Secret Feature)

It’s true, Windows 7’s secret new feature is XP Mode. It’s a virtual Windows XP machine—complete with a fully licensed copy of Windows XP SP 3 installed on the virtual machine—that you can download which runs seamlessly in Windows 7, so you can do crazy things like run IE6 side-by-side with IE8. It’s meant for businesses who need compatibility for mission critical XP-only apps.

Windows 7 XP Mode

Really, don’t get too hung up on it—it’s only for the Enterprise, Professional and Ultimate versions of Windows 7, not the Home Premium version you’ll probably be running one day. (The release candidate is Ultimate, so you can toy around with it after downloading it here.) You also need a processor with either Intel Virtualization Technology or AMD-V and 2GB of RAM. And you can’t really do anything intense like gaming inside of it.

Adjust Large System Cache

Easy Way to Adjust LargeSystemCache

HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerMemory Management and change thevalue to either O or 1 to the adjustment the LargeSystemCache.
However, in Windows XP, all you have to do is:· Right-click My Computer.· Select Properties.· Click Advanced.· Choose Performance.· Click Advanced again.· Select either Programs or System Cache under Memory Usage.Programs = 0 for the registry tweak equivalentSystem Cache = 1 for the registry tweak equivalent

· On NT Server (in this case XP), the Large System Cache option is enabled, butdisabled on Workstation. The two different settings effect how the cache managerallocates free memory. If the Large Cache option is on, the manager marks all the freememory, which isn’t being used by the system and/or applications, as freely available fordisk caching.

· On the flip-side (with a small cache), the manager instead only sets aside 4MB ofmemory for disk caching in an attempt to accelerate the launch of applications. Or in amore technical approach, if enabled the system will favor system-cache working sets overprocess working sets (with a working set basically being the memory used by components ofa process).


BGC3 is the next vendor of Bill Gates after Microsoft and the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation. It is a highly mysterious coampany, no one knows exactly what it is upto, and there have been many esoteric suggestions for what BGC3 means. Bill Gates Company 3 seems to be fair assumption.
To full fill all of Bill Gates dreams that could not be realised by Microsoft or the Bill & the Melinda Gates foundation. It will be a catalyst, a base for upcoming technologies and innovations. The company is widely thought to be at “Think Tank” and a vehicle for Bill to invest all his hard earned money into imminent ventures answering problems of science, society & technology.
The swanky new office is located at Kirkland, Washington. The office is located a short distance away from Bill Gates’s Washington Lake estate.
Carillon Holdings was established in March 2008. In July 10, a mere ten days after Bill Gates quit Microsoft, the company officially changed it’s name to BGC3.
All entrepreneurs look out for fundings. Ambitious start-ups with novel ideas that can use up all the money for some philanthropic goal, or to solve major problems like fuel crisis, the garbage crisis or even the substandard software crisis’, all these will stand to benefit.
The details of the working are still obscure at best. They have registered a trademark and a logo. BGC3 is not another capitalist company.
