Not overly exciting, but packed with good information for beginning the assault on Windows7. I have been a long time windows user, my main machine is a macbook, and I have several linux boxes kicking around also. This free PDF explains a lot of the Windows7 features, and im going to shoot it off to my Parents (who are using Vista) to give them a quick overview. For the less technical in our families, this may just be the book of basic answers they need.

Removing the fixed-allocation settings in the registry seems to have the desired affect of keeping the tomcat6 memory usage to a more “normal” amount

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun 2.0\vctomcat\Parameters\Java

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun 2.0\vctomcat\Parameters\Java

JvmMs = 0x0

JvmMx = 0x0

JvmSs = 0x0
