Paul, you're failing at statistics and process analysis here! You can't just extend the last segment, you have to calculate a trendline and extrapolate that. Realistically, armageddon would...

"Developers were supposedly clamoring for this release, ..." You make it sound like you don't think people could still be wanting to write Desktop apps or something. A bit 'Yay!...

Everything I can find suggests it's resolution- or DPI-related. No idea why you'd have two systems with the same settings but different row counts.
Thursday, March 1, 2012 - 17:57
No dice. My Inspiron Duo support multitouch and Win8 uses it, but I get four rows. However, on the dev preview, at some point after I switched the desktop to higher-DPI, it switched to three rows.

All I can say is, Microsoft had better release an attractive alternative for us power users. I'm sorry, but the metro start screen *will not fly* for many professional users, and not just because...

Nevermind that google is just as bad about 'copying' features from bing, especially in the UI department...

no problems to report here. I keep ActiveXFiltering/TrackingProtection turned on usually, but disable them selectively as the need comes, and in the instances where I need to enable flash for a site...

Yeah, not excited for chrome OS in the least.

In the meantime, this is frustrating:
I go to the article page via the RSS item. it tells me i need to login to comment. I click login...

argh. somehow this got posted on the wrong article. that should've gone here:...

I'll be honest; i'm not digging the new layout/design that much. The actual article content takes up a painfully small portion of the page, and the ads and fluff seem more intrusive than ever. Fonts...

yoshipod: It really comes down to the notion that different products within microsoft are worked on by different teams -- which don't generally communicate with each other that well. if the IE...

I think it's a matter of applications. Sometimes when managing multiple windows, I may think I've got a certain window/panel active when it really isn't, and the result is I try to copy text when...

Very cool that it's adapting the Metro UI style. That massive ad is rather annoying though.

Wow, I totally forgot this was getting released today. Downloading VS2010 Premium from MSDN as we speak.

funny, it's rare that I have any troubles using forum searches. There are the occasional ones with strange character restrictions, time-between-searches, or generally poor results, but most i've used...

"Unfortunately"? I don't get it? What, exactly, was he expecting? Pirates will always be one step ahead. Thwart them and they'll just find a new way to pirate your stuff.

rr0de74: Many PC gamers would tell you that the PC vendors are the ones killing PC gaming by releasing nothing but underpowered systems preloaded with bloatware. Not to say that gaming PCs have ever...

nutmac: there's a bit of a difference; service packs are typically collections of preexisting hotfixes along with a few new features, while WHS power packs seem to focus more on feature updates.

speeding along at just under 500 KB/s. not bad.

Rasken: If you'd like an honest answer, then yes, that is a license violation. Win7 RC is not eligible for an Upgrade to RTM, even if it is a technically feasible scenario. If that system previously...

Log: No bending necessary, that's exactly how it is. If they wanted it to fit they would've just made it fit. All they'd have to do is change the font size, but they made a design decision to cut it...

Memo to me: Make note of who I'm speaking to here. Above comment was directed at the article's resident troll.

Sorry, your points are not relevant, and are once again largely false. The Zune series is hardware that works, and works quite well, and it'd be ridiculous to deny that. Meanwhile, you argue design...

LogJamming: Zune, Windows 7, Nice selection of third party software for blu ray (there's an app for that), DirectCompute. Thank you, try again.

Logjamming: Nice list of irrelevant, nonexistent, or downright wrong issues there. Also, grammers. Try not failing miserably in your next troll post. This attempt: 2/10. Tsk tsk.

We need to have a Useless Troll Of The Year award. Looks like robertsjoe has some competition in the "Will Find Anything To Troll About On Any Article" event.

Too bad the mouse will still probably require finger lifting to determine button presses, making it a no-sell for me.

Dunno about anyone else, but here on this win7 system, that is already unchecked. Searches are kinda fast anyway, though the progress bar still gets displayed for a bit.
