Re: WLMM2011 for Win7, why not let people choose? Essentials 2012 is nice and all, but the updated Movie Maker is incompatible with a lot of lower end hardware (DirectX 10 vs DirectX 9). WMM 2011...

SO I'm assuming there'd be no problem if you currently have Vista Ultimate?

Yup, I live in Canada and had no problems downloading MSE with my Connect ID.

Can anyone get the 64-bit edition? The link above keeps bumping me back to the 32-bit edition.

"Zap your PRAM" LOL! Man, I haven't heard that one in years!

Really, just how useful is this product? I've been wary of Symantec stuff for a couple of years now, if only because they need to offer standalone uninstallers because their built-in ones can't do...

No offence intended Paul, but wasn't your Windows Secrets book co-written with the guy that heads that Windows Secrets website? Or was that only the first edition?

Is that per user, or would the assoc command set it for all users?

Bitlocker's never really caught my interest. I've had great luck with TrueCrypt. It's free and works with lower ends of Vista, XP, MacOS X, etc, and the latest version lets you encrypt the entire...

Guess they're having Microsoft's cake AND eating it too! (Kudos to MS for sending them one though)
Monday, April 7, 2008 - 12:32
Yeah, that's curious...When I bought an OEM copy of XP years ago, the store I went to wouldn't sell it without some base computer components,, such as a motherboard or hard drive, or even a floppy...
Saturday, April 5, 2008 - 12:01's been advertising Vista w/SP1 for about two weeks now, and some of the local computer stores in my area actually have it in stock too.

Looks good! In particular, I like how feeds can now be available from the Favorites bar as in Firefox. Never cared for the way that was handled in IE 7. Now if they would only make AdBlock Plus and...

Also, for me anyway, Amazon's MP3 service is irrelevant, as it's not available in Canada. Yet. From what I played with on the US site though, the interface wasn't as slick as iTunes. I think Apple...

Agreed, there are way too many versions of Vista. It's confusing, limiting, artificial and unnecessary. Microsoft marketing frustrates the heck out of me. Yeah I know it's all about trying to rake...

All good news. For me anyway, this was one of my main issues with Vista and I'm glad to hear it's been redone. The few times I used Vista, I'd get so ticked as I would map a share to my XP laptop....
Monday, February 4, 2008 - 10:33
Come on....This isn't even news. A Mac, especially these days, is just standard PC components in a slick (?) design with a non-Windows OS and snazzier marketing. They can break down just like any...

Hey Paul, is there any way to get rid of all those stupid pingbacks from appearing in the comments section?
Wednesday, January 30, 2008 - 14:36
Not just Vista. I have a MacBook running Windows XP, and I have the same problems with BlueTooth. Every now and then, when I'd wake up the laptop from sleep mode, it would appear to be frozen for up...

It has its limitations, but it's not that bad, especially considering what you pay for it. It has a lot of promise and they've already talked about future upgrades for it. People have already managed...

Yup, they'll call it "Windows Server Ultimate Extras"! skins for Powershell and XML Notepad! (Sorry couldn't resist.)
Tuesday, November 27, 2007 - 11:31
Vista is slower than XP, but that's not the problem here. Most people who are getting Vista for the first time are getting it preinstalled on new home systems. The problem, of course, is that most...
Tuesday, November 27, 2007 - 11:04
Yep, I'd have to agree! I just bought my first Mac (a new Santa Rosa MacBook) in thirteen years. I've wanted to play with the iLife suite, as I haven't been particularly enthused about the various...

And yet, amazingly (?) Cnet put Vista in its Top ten terrible tech products...

If it wasn't for the web, I wouldn't even be aware that Zunes exist. I've never seen a Zune at the Best Buys or Future Shops here in Alberta, Canada. Their flyers never advertise them, and even their...

I'm sure all of Microsoft's "Plays for Sure" OEMs are thrilled.

IE only, US only, yet another custom media player required, and you can't play them on an iPod or any other portable device. This blows.
