The economic analysis of perpetual license vs. subscription assumes that Microsoft does not raise the subscription price in the future.

I am unconvinced that Hill's analysis is correct. Reading a book is not looking for a new paradigm from Apple. e-ink is not off the mark and is probably closer to the mark then the iPad. People are...

Paul: you wrote "We know you're scare of Windows 7" I think scare could use a "d".

Paul thanks for passing along the heads up.

"HD radio" does NOT stand for high-definition. It stands for "hybrid digital". Check it out at http://en....

Cable companies missed the boat here. In 2005/6 this would have been significant. Today, with Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand, Apple iTunes store... it's too late. The distribution of premium...

Life is changing. So what? The author needs to get over it and on with it.

Vendors such as Microsoft, Google and Apple want us to be married (or is that enslaved) to them. As Paul points out, the quality of vendor solutions vary by application. Some are great, such as...

The prospect of Office 2010 is uninteresting in 2009. I live in my browser, as do many of us, My choice of browsers, in descending order of usefulness to me, is Firefox, Chrome, IE8, Safari, Opera. I...

@Paul Raf may be a really, really, really great computer scientist but... If Ed's tweak works, and it works for me as well as others, Rafael, like Einstein when he talked about quantum physics, may...

Sorry to disabuse your "science" but on my Vista 32 bit Ultimate machine IE8 performed significantly faster after the useless Bott tweak than before. Before, it was a pig. After, it seems almost as...

The DIY is a minuscule market. Dvorak's "calculus" does not apply in the general market where people buy complete systems. They do not assemble their own desktop computers. Microsoft does not charge...

I am happy to have Microsoft ignore beta-tester suggestions. I want bug fixes and nothing more. I want Windows 7 sooner rather than later. I would take it “as it is” in W7 beta build 7000. I find it...

I was surprised to see that the battery is not user changeable. This is a bad thing. Apple needs to be chastised about doing this and so does Amazon. These corporations are turning portable...

@USArcher Thanks. Did not know that but I plan to check it out.

I have several hotmail, live and passport accounts for no good reason but I still use them all so... it would nice if I could integrate them into a unified presence and then hook this to Windows 7.

Methinks this presages the end of Zune.

@chuckb84 "Remember, Paul makes money from Microsoft, not Mozilla, Linux or Apple, hence the faux outrage." I think Paul has integrity and this post was not motivated by anything other than his...

I will not be giving up Firefox just because they have an agenda in the EU antitrust arena. Should I give up using Windows because Microsoft has often lied and spread half-truths about Linux? I think...

I believe that the 21% penetration figure for Firefox understates its real share. Many business installations are locked down so that nothing gets installed. As a sometimes Sysadmin I can understand...

@meason I believe the language packs are a basic part of W7 Ultimate and not an extra.
Tuesday, February 10, 2009 - 4:15am
I have had Ultimate since day 1, never used any of the "extras". I don't know what they are (except Dreamscape) and I do not care if they disappear. But I believe Microsoft should offer something as...

I tried to load this in Windows 7 Media Center without success. Has anybody gotten it to work with Windows 7?
Monday, January 19, 2009 - 8:20am
I hope and expect that Microsoft will do a much better job than MobileMe.
Wednesday, January 14, 2009 - 1:33am
@Paul: Thank you. This was not automatically added to the Windows 7 Windows Update, even though I manually ran the service.

Right now (9am EST) the Live Sync servers seem to have crashed. I cannot log in on five different systems, with two different Live IDs. Nice job on the transition!

I will not use Symantec/Norton security products. I have seen too many of my clients' machines bogged down by them. I have not needed or used them myself since Symantec bought Peter Norton's company...

Perception once again trumps reality. These two articles demonstrates that Microsoft is still SOL when it comes to Vista. No matter how much truth is dispensed it never seems to override faith and...

Maybe they should call it Windows OS XI.
Friday, September 19, 2008 - 3:35am
I am surprised, surprised I tell you, to read that Apple would exaggerate. The sky is falling!
