You can go to System Properties to find out what computer name is when needed. You also can use this little tool BgInfo to create custom wallpaper with computer name stamped in it.

However, if you are like me who often manage more than one computer or run a couple of virtual machines and don’t often get chance to see the desktop, you will find having a computer name that always stay in taskbar all time can be quite handy.

Step1: Create a new folder with name the same as your computer name.

You can create it anywhere that is convenient to you. For example, now I have c:\temp\Kent-VW7.

Step 2: Right-click on the empty area in the taskbar and choose Toolbars, then New Toolbar.

Step 3: browsing through the folder and select the new folder created in Step 1 as your Toolbar and click Select Folder.

Done! And here is what the taskbar looks like with computer name embedded.

Yesterday I’ve got a chance to attend the "Are You Ready For Windows 7 ?" event Microsoft hold in Canada. Yesterday was the first day tour in Vancouver, there are still 2 location have currently confirmed in Winnipeg and Calgary on Sept 21 and Sept 22.

The crowd was huge, whole conference room was packed with IT Pros, and Developers. Speaker Stephen L Rose from the Windows Team Blog, The Springboard Series. Covered few topics on BitLocker, BitLocker To GO, AppLocker, DirectAccess, VPN reconnect, BranchCache and some Windows 7 Enhanced Security.

The nice thing with this event was the "surprise prize" for everybody who have registered and attended will get a FREE COPY of Windows 7 Ultimate, and of course some other free stuff as well.

Windows 7 Ultimate DVD (Note: this is the promotional disk, but retail version should be similar to this with the shining edge on the DVD cover)

Windows 7 Ultimate Cover

The Cover of Windows 7 Ultimate, expected the retail version to be similar to this.

Windows 7 Ultimate DVD Cover

What’s inside of the cover. A list of Installing guide and System Requirements can be found here, and of course the serials key can be found here as well. The DVD will include both 32 bit and 64 bit, but the key can be only activated once. So think ahead before choosing which version of Windows 7 to install. It is suggested at the current stage and in the near future the 64 bit OS will soon become the dominant OS. It is also our advise to install the 64 bit Operating System.

So here you go, the early look at the Windows 7 Ultimate DVD and its Cover
