London’s Oriental City is to be knocked down after Development Securities, the new property owners, have proposed to rebuild the site with a DIY store, 520 property flats, gym and a primary school. Oriental City, famous for it’s Food Court which contains a wide range of Asian restaurants providing reasonably priced authentic food as well as it’s SE Asian supermarkets, currently attracts around 10,000 visitors per month.

As well as making Virtual PC 2004 available as a free download, Microsoft have also offered a VPC image containing a pre-activated Windows XP SP2 with IE6. This image is only functional until April 1, 2007 but nonetheless, it’s a nice nod by MS to web developers.
“In other words, it’s like setting the scene for a play rather than recreating the world as it is. If you don’t tell people they should be making a stage, they go ahead and try to make an entire world. There is an art to how you properly set a stage and that’s what I had to carefully explain.”
