windows 7 must have utility #1:

it’s thursday and i’ve decided to combine my windows 7 and office 2010 tip into must have utility suggestions.  so here they are – for windows 7 (and even previous versions of the operating system) an iso mounting utility.  windows 7 includes built in iso burning capabilities (i used alex feinman’s iso recorder in previous versions of windows – he’s got a windows 7 version now as well)

windows 7 doesn’t let you mount an iso without first burning it or using a virtualization technology (such as windows virtual pc), so that’s when i turn to something like magiciso virtual cd/dvd-rom or slysoft virtual clone drive

office 2010 must have utility #1:

office labs has released a program called ribbon hero.  it took me a while to test it out but it’s a great way to learn office 2010 (or 2007 for that matter) and play an addicting game at the same time.
