All of you must be wondering if I have abandoned my Live Space. Yeah, you are right, I did (temporarily), but worry not, I am back for good so get ready for the new content that’s coming!
The year 2006 I would best describe as being a bitter-sweet one. I got to be a part of a community of millions of testers who helped to shape the next version of Windows; Vista which I must say is awesome and will define a decade of user empowerment through improvements and new features in areas such as communication, collaboration and entertainment. With a significantly enhanced interface that puts the user at the centre, Vista will create new opportunities for users to be productive and agile in a world where time means money and precious memories are priceless.
The bitter part of this year for me is the recent tragic loss of my father who I consider to be my hero and mentor. A person who was always there when I needed him for encouragement and advice. A man who was the epitome of strength and endurance faded away without us knowing really how unhappy he was. Still I will honour his memory by appreciating his love for family and the dedication and loyalty he gave to the rights of Workers throughout Jamaica. Rest in Peace Dad until that day we meet again.
Going forward, I am looking to 2007, to new beginning’s and opportunities. Some of my resolutions for the blog are to focus on getting out more Vista related content and more reviews, because it’s obvious the fun really begins with the release. I hope your year was great and let us enter the New Year with peace and love for one another.
I would like to extend special thanks to all the readers of Teching It Easy, online friends, Beta Testers and friends in the Windows Community for their out pour of love and support during what was a rough time.
With Love & Respect,
Andre Da Costa
