G Data Internet Security 2011

G Data Internet Security 2011 unique feature is its DoubleScan technology. This uses two independent detection engines to scan suspect files. Engine A (Bitdefender) offers very good detection and very good perfomance while Engine B (Avast) offers good detection and optimum performance.

You can do a custom install to disable firewall if you've your own third party firewall. A bootCD can even be created to remove malware when your PC is not bootable.

Wing Linux 0.4.2

Since I've an old Qtek 9100 (aka HTC Wizard), I decided to try out Wing Linux. It will dual boot your existing Windows Mobile 5 Professional and run Android 1.5. The latest release is 0.4.2 and you can install as follows:
  1. Download and unzip the file to a directory
  2. Copy the directory to a miniSD card with minimum 256B of free space
  3. Power on Qtek 9100 and insert the miniSD card
  4. Use File Explorer to access Storage Card and run & install to Storage Card
  5. Run & install to Storage Card
  6. Click on Start -> Programs -> Wing Linux and follow instructions to install
After installation, click on Start -> Programs -> Wing Linux. On HaRET Version 0.5.2 screen, tap Run and wait for Android to boot.

The Menu key is the button above the end call button. You can check what is working and what is not working. To shutdown, press & hold end call button and tap Power off. Next tap Ok. This will reboot the phone and starts Windows Mobile.

You can run Android with or without a SIM card. Sometimes, even with a SIM card, GSM may not work (without signal bars at the top) and you'll need to restart to get it working. Numbers can be dialed but there is no dial tone or audio and there is no ring tone when being called. These make it quite useless as a phone. But, nevertheless, it is excellent efforts by the developers and I'm looking forward to future releases.
