Download of the Day: Process Explorer 14.11

By: Array

Our Download of the Day today is Process Explorer 14.11.

 

Process Explorer shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded.

 

The Process Explorer display consists of two sub-windows. The top window always shows a list of the currently active processes, including the names of their owning accounts, whereas the information displayed in the bottom window depends on the mode that Process Explorer is in: if it is in handle mode you'll see the handles that the process selected in the top window has opened; if Process Explorer is in DLL mode you'll see the DLLs and memory-mapped files that the process has loaded. Process Explorer also has a powerful search capability that will quickly show you which processes have particular handles opened or DLLs loaded.

 

The unique capabilities of Process Explorer make it useful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.

Microsoft thrash Apple for OS revenue in 2010, surprised? Didn't think so

By: Array

Microsoft pulled in a total of $30.4 billion in 2010 for worldwide operating system revenue, a decent 7.8-percent growth from 2009. In terms of OS market share, Microsoft are still king with 78.6-percent in terms of revenue, with Apple way behind with only 1.7-percent.

 

TweakTown image news/1/9/19582_25_microsoft_owned_the_os_revenue_for_2010.jpg

 

IBM, HP, Oracle and Red Hat each did better than Apple (!) with 7.5, 3.7, 2.6 and 2.0-percent of the market respectively. Microsoft's Windows client business had decent growth of 9.2-percent compared with the Server side of their business with only 7.5-percent. It's good to see Microsoft still king of the OS battle and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
