@subzerohitman721 I think the pre-order thing was enough. It was a way of offering those involved a discount without making any legal commitments and, hey, half price on retail Professional is...

P.S. Microsoft offered the Beta testers a coupon of sorts anyway. Most people who were in the know enough to get on the Beta program or download an RC would have been aware of the pre-order special...

@Waethorn FireFox 3.6 didn't meet Mozilla's very open very loose by committee security requirments of less than 550 known unpatched holes, so they threw it in the trash bin. At Mozilla it's safety...

What more security holes !? First 3.5, which was so riddled with holes they had to come out with a point one release 3.5.1 and now 3.7. Internet Explorer is the only browser that runs in Protected...

@robertsjoe I thought Paul Thurrott recently asked the commenters to stay on topic? Your comment is completely off topic.

I don't use it. Has too 'lite' a feel for me.

I guess one could build one's own 'home server', eh? A few scripts etc. etc. 'Would make for an interesting project.

Effectively communicating? Yes, no? Hmm - don't know. I can say it's is not clear how certain scenarios are going to work yet. Maybe when the time comes Microsoft will make it clear as a bell. If...

About a selection screen. Well, EU wants it both ways after the fact. They told Microsoft to get rid of Windows Media Player . They also bi*ched about the bundling of IE. So Microsoft precluded...
