Wow. That's a *serious* jerk move to compare Ed Bott to someone busted for child porn. What is wrong with you? That's *really* unnecessary and inappropriate. Not publishing the article doesn't...

The article doesn't mention whether they turned Aero on or off during the test. My assumption is that Aero was on and that accounts for the difference in battery life. I'd like to see the same test...

@Paul This blog would be better without comments. Just saying.

Windows 7 Pro can login to an Active Directory domain, which is a major feature difference from the home version. I would imagine that a signficant number of your readers run their own domains.

You're right. They're basically just playing catch up with all the consumer features. I'm looking forward to the turn-by-turn GPS apps, in spite of the fact that it too is a catch up feature....

The Remote Desktop Jump List is something I'll use absolutely every day. Good feature. Paul mentioned his problem with the default Windows 7 taskbar view three times in this blog post alone. In...

Is there any reason this can't be ported to the iPhone? Maybe that's crazy talk, but it's certainly possible some people would want to use Windows Live Mail with an iPhone.

I'm hoping these are simple, cosmetic changes. Making significant changes at this point will lead to delays and a bad product.

It's a very good companion to the Kindle, but is not a substitute because the screen is too small.

I'm with the other folks. That horse is really, rally dead. Microsoft is not changing the Taskbar view. It's time to move on.
Monday, March 2, 2009 - 7:36am
@DarkSages has it exactly right. Paul is essentially advocating for the Vista-development style. You have an endless number of users complaining about an endless number of features resulting in an...

I agree with Raskin and I guess this proves the point I made over here:...

I disagree completely with all of the handwringing on Windows 7 feedback. If you let thousands of Beta testers have veto power over every feature, you'll never get anything done. For everyone who...

"Let’s campaign for more transparency at Microsoft and less Apple-like secrecy instead." I think this is completely wrong. There is a direct relationship between big announcements and hype. Apple...

I completely agree that the media is too soft on Apple. They are also too hard on Microsoft. This is exponentially more true in the blogosphere. That being said, viruses and other security...

It isn't surprising that the servers are having problems, as the thing is 2.5 GB. It's an absolutely enormous download, and even if you've only got 10,000 people downloading at the same time, you've...

"Amassing a collection of iTunes-bought Protected AAC tracks is like failing an intelligence test." It's not just Apple and it isn't just iTunes. Amassing a collection of ANY restricted music...

Gah! I must have found that page as he was uploading it. Beta availability is public info now.

Following up my previous comment, MSDN and TechNet subscribers get the code tomorrow and the public gets it on Friday.

Leak! Leak! Paul has inadvertently leaked the Windows 7 availability information:...

Nothing on my TechNet Plus subscription in either downloads or product keys. HURRY UP MICROSOFT. SHEESH.

* I don't see any reason for you to keep MobileMe, since you are getting sync and web access to your stuff via other means. It seems like $100 down the drain. An interesting MobileMe note - as far...

Couple things: * As mentioned above, did you try turning Aero off? * It may be that the Intel chipset commonly bundled with Atom is actually useful in accelerating Aero, while your UMPC may not be...

I thought the Onion spoof was hilarious. Really good stuff.
Monday, January 5, 2009 - 9:52am
I beg to differ. This is not Toshiba's product. It's Microsoft's product and they are responsible for making it work properly. You could make an argument for sharing the blame, but it's...

I found another (annoying) problem with the Windows Live Messeger beta. It steals focus with its contacts window, making the desktop gadgets loose focus. In practice what this means is that if you...

Why does EVERY SINGLE COMMENT THREAD here turn into an argument about people's motives/integrity/credibility or Apple vs. PC? Don't you guys ever get tired of having the same argument over and over...
Tuesday, December 16, 2008 - 11:42am
Thought I'd chime in with a comment saying I'm interested, on the off-chance Microsoft thinks that people who read WinSuperSite are good candidates for beta testing Windows. Somehow that makes way...

@Paul When you pin an icon to the taskbar in Windows 7, does it prevent you from pinning it to the Start Menu MRU list, or does it just remove the icon from the list and force you to put it back...

That's a lot of consternation in substitute for a sense of humor. I'm primarily a Windows guy and I think the Apple ads are clever, funny and not a big deal.
