Crickets because seriously consumer retail sales mean nothing for Windows in terms of overall sales.

@shark here is a perfect example of Mike and his Apple problem....

"All this, before mikegalos makes his first comment." Lets see if that is true. You could certainly go back and see. I bet you would find that Mike makes some negative comparison with Apple or...

Reading your post I would think this is the price for upgrades of Windows 7, forever. Yet when I go to the link I see in the actual memo "This we be available for 16 days through July 11th" after...

From you link Mike, the only thing that "case study" says about Vista is this... "As of November 2006, Enterprise has upgraded a cross-section of IT department users to Windows Vista". Yep just...

I can give you phone numbers of people if you want? The corporate office is in the town I live in. Anything outside of that town is nothing but a rental branch or a small admin office supporting...

Ahh Mike your such a ignorant little man. In my first post I said... "My first experience with Vista was beta 2/RC/early 2007" and then I said " I gave up personally around October of 2007." In...

@mike. I was in a pilot at my company, 200 or so people in IT, and another 100 or so key users in different non IT departments. The pilot took us from Beta2 up through Jan 07 before it ended and we...

Here is the problem with those benchmarks and a good thing for MS. My first experience with Vista was beta 2/RC/early 2007. It was a pig, had compatibility problems, SUPER slow copy speeds, just...

@subzero I dont buy the $99 argument. The Wii, iPhone, and iTouch all blow that argument over pretty quick. Heck Mac sales alone in this economy barely dropping blow that argument down. If you...

@trufoo0 ummmm I said the same thing. 2 iphones, one with the firmware that comes with one you buy today from the store, 2.12 or whatever my wife's is. One with the latest beta of 3.0 Take a photo...

@meason I have seen them in the wild a lot. At one point Amazon was sold out and could not make them fast enough. I am sure this economy cuts things like a Kindle out pretty dam quick. That said...

"So I don't get it. Are you defending Apple in that statement or what?" Not at all. The firmware could still not help out. I am saying that Paul is trying to say "NO it does not help" by...

@drwam there is no question the camera is shat, like most phone cameras. But since its digital, there is a possibility that it could be made better, which implies that this current firmware is not...

"Part of that may be because of the lighting at the time, some may be because of the software. It's hard to tell unless it was the exact same content." Exactly. A real test would be to have to...
Wednesday, May 6, 2009 - 6:54am
they apparently just don't get that the price needs to come down for people to buy in to the kindle ecosystem." Maybe its selling well so, right now, there is no need for them to lower the price?...

"and as I haven't found an acceptable WM phone yet, I'm still using the iPhone." I have searched the earth and moon, one does not exist. I curese my work provided Treo 800W Daily, when taking out...

"I doubt that Microsoft is going to bend over backwards to help Intel with this. " How or why does Intel need help? Intel did not write the new version of VPC. Historically Intel has always sold...

DRWAM I can only compare running XP, Vista and 7 on a ESX server/VDI with 1 CPU and 1gig of RAM. That is what the new VDI users get with XP. In fact most existing XP VM's have 512meg. Anyhow 7, so...

Problem = "A heavily hyped new Windows 7 feature, XP Mode, won’t work on some Intel-based products?" Root Cause (According to Ed) = "The problem is caused by the Byzantine way Intel packages its...
Monday, May 4, 2009 - 12:16pm
Yeah blame it on Intel, good one. VPC should use it if its in the CPU and not use it if its not, with a performance hit if its not available. You know like VMware does. Last thursday I was at a...

I installed Windows 7 in a VMware VDI today, gave it 1CPU and 1gig of RAM. So far I am quite surprised. I am using classic mode and "adjust for best performance" to get the snappiest possible GUI...

So far the RC is pretty nice. I installed in on a white box Intel mobo/intel CPU and it runs good. I have 4gigs of RAM though. Playing around the video settings (with nothing but Windows installed...

Wow did Paul delete Ocean's first post?? JHC thin skin?

Lol, in 24hrs or less it will be all over the internet.

Waethorn and SubZero are a couple of clueless helpdesk jockeys. Neither of them has any idea of how IT really works outside of their local computer store and starwars fan club meetings. I have no...

"That said, AutoCad is graphic intensive, so I'm not sure whether it would run well in a virtualised environment. In fact, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't. You may have to investigate the costlier VMware...
