AERO should be in the top 3 if the request were added up for the 30 different topics from the feedback tool. Please run a search for AERO in the "Theme, Windows and Personalization Control Panel"...

These guys just can't produce a "Windows 7" for the browser market. By that I mean a piece of software that simply does what you expect it to do with no compromises. By the time IE9 comes out (...

Microsoft slowly learns to do what consumers actually want. I can't wait for the final release of Win Live suite.

MSFT knows what i'm talking about: " users notice any delay over 0.2 seconds. Actions that are faster than 0.2 seconds appear instantaneous. Scenarios with response times slower than that threshold...

My hopes for this version: 1. Standards compliance (100%): MS was very arrogant in this matter in the past years. They should accept the industry standards and simply take this issue off the table...

Apple enthusiasts are likely to pay an artificially inflated price for devices that lack many (otherwise widely available) features. I wish there was a good term for describing this behavior.......

If my memory serves me there were lots of software/web services companies present at CES. Photo/video editing, sharing, archiving and organizing is just as much part of the CE picture as are...

Great show from CES Paul! I hope the Lenovo avoids the vaporware ending and actually comes to market. The other portables lacked real innovation and "the sexy" factor. I think I know why Balmer...

I believe the reason for not releasing the source code is that the app does some kind of hash checking on the ISOs used with it to prevent the use of "not so legit" Windows images. If they were to...

I have to disagree with the boundling arguments: it is good that you can install a barebone Windows. If you use other software (AVG, Google Earth, Google Search, iTunes, GMail...) you do not need to...

@jctierney: anyone know how to change the default width I believe it a specific to touch enabled PCs. Buttons need to be bigger and more spaced apart so they became easier to touch with fingers (as...

@teemark Yes, it is annoying that todays Celerons support VT buy many Core2Duo and even Core2Quad chips do not. Not to mention Dual Core CPUs. There is also a chipset issue, as you cannot upgrade...

Microsoft had the chance to avoid anti-trust investigations by delivering MSE without UI and integrating it with Action Center (notification, config). But this is almost as good. I am also...

please DO NOT confuse enterprise and consumer scenarios. Google is more interested in the consumer side, as there is a lot more ad money in this segment. Corporate will not buy unmanagable netbooks...

let's seen now: Chrome Browser: 1. Users install Chrome 2. Users see that there are no add-ons/extensions and some plugins don't work (silverlight) 3. Users find out there are no AD Blockers for...

the only way Office will get to Linux is by web apps. if MS truely makes the web versions of Word, Excel and PP browser friendly (and I mean Firefox) it will catch on with the Linux people. whoever...

@robertsjoe: Microsoft's evil practices? Like putting a web browser in the OS in the 21st century? That is truly EVIL! I cannot think of any other operating system that has a browser built in the...

BSOD may be caused by improperly plugged PATA/SATA cable and overheating issue. Also check if cards are properly seated in the slots.

@Waethorn I know all that. I worked for a company with SA and the boss did not approve the use of those benefits. We were "stuck" on W2000 Pro years into XP availability, until we eventually...

@darkmax look at it this way: apple has very dedicated users (aka fanboys) and Microsoft has 95% if the OS market. it is a balanced world. I cannot imagine a world where Windows users are as vocal...

I propose a bet to Paul Thurrott: I bet $132 (the number of days remaining to the GA of Win7) that the MS protection of W7 gets cracked before release date (Oct. 22nd). If i win (Win7 activation...

in the real world: when I first read the news about XP Mode I immediately thought about upgrading the PCs at the agency I work at from XP. 5600+ systems have Vista logos, enough RAM, large HDD, DX9...
