Posted 13 Aug 2013But is it right to use it this way? For me this seams to be designed for storing settings not to act as a or replace a DB.
Besides this, I kinda need the DB to be portable so that I can transfer it between different versions of the app.

Posted 13 Aug 2013I'm a leftie. Can't stand the right alternative and I cannot follow the brackets, no matter what.
But there is no right or wrong here.
K&R gives compact code but the Allman style makes the code easier to follow (or it should but it's not available for everybody) since all brackets are on the same "column" so you will always new the closing bracket is somewhere straight below.
Also, you shouldn't worry much about this since most editors offer the possibility to set the style you like, no matter how others code.

Posted 30 Sep 2012Well, if you're not sure you can give it a try first.
1. virtualization (Virtual Box or VMWare)
2. dual boot using VHDs (as far as I know this is available in Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Windows 7 and 8)
3. actual dual boot (installing Windows 8 on another partition - as a general rule the newer OS is installed AFTER the older one but considering that Windows 8 is in fact Windows 7 shouldn't be a problem)
4. installing Windows 8 on a USB stick:
- install Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK)
- insert/mount Windows 8 DVD/ISO and start Deployment Tools Command Prompt
- locate install.wim & bcdboot.exe on your DVD/iso
- type: imagex.exe /apply install.wim 1 h: (I copied install.wim on my HDD so I didn't have to navigate to the actual location of the file but you'll have to type the full path; H is the USB drive)
- when done type: bcdboot.exe h:\windows /s h: /f all (you'll need to use bcdboot.exe from the DVD, not the one you have on Windows 7 as Windows 7 does not support /f all args - at least it didn't work for me)
The problem with 1 & 2 is that it increases the degree of you C:\ drive fragmentation very much and somehow I found it easier to have a special partition for virtualization especially when you use that a lot.
However, if all you want is Windows 8, creating a partition just for that is silly unless you plan on actual dual boot.
On the other hand, I suggest you don't believe what everybody says and give it a try yourself. I was really skeptical about Windows 8 especially because of the Metro interface but if you can ignore that you'll find that Windows 8 is a good OS (based on what I've seen so far). And if you still don't like Metro and miss the Start button, Start8 & Skip Metro Suite will do the trick (assuming you don't write Metro apps that need real testing).
