I am now in the process of changing the name of my blog. I have registered the domain name abokevin.com and have transferred my blog to this address. I am in the process of finding a new theme for the blog, as well as changing the top image to incorporate the new name.
So why the new name? When I started this blog a few years ago (I know, I know – I have not been too active here) Windows Vista was just about to be a Release Candidate and I wanted to blog about it and other MS Tech related news. Well the world has moved on, the new MS OS is now Windows 7, and I felt that the name Norwegian Vista no longer seemed appropriate. I was thinking of keeping it on interpreting the name to be more like the Norwegian Outlook on things tech (no pun intended 😉 ), but decided against it.
AboKevin happens to be my nickname in Lebanon, since my oldest sons name is Kevin. AboKevin literally means “Father of Kevin”. A nickname like this is given with respect and is something I truly honor and appreciate, and I can think of nothing better as the name for my blog.

The change of name also underscores something that has already happened to the blog; it is no longer only tech-related. Although tech is most likely also going to be the biggest topic on the blog in the future, I will post more about geopolitics and other topics that I find interesting and worthwhile getting out there.
Our small family is also growing. I will soon be the father of a third child. We don’t yet know whether it is a boy or a girl (didn’t want to know is more precise) but are really looking forward to the arrival of the fifth member of the family. The arrival is scheduled for later this month, more posts on that to follow.
Anyway, there you have it: The name of this blog is now AboKevins blog.
Thank you for your continued interest;
