What I meant was "in the typography department". Not in terms of all features. Word never did typography until now, while OS X and Pages (still) are much more capable than Word at typography and page...

Well, they'll said they'll annouce it when it's RTMed, why is the blogger community getting hyper? In other news, Word plays catchup with Pages as well like PowerPoint plays catchup with Keynote. Did...

What about Office Mondo that leaked to torrents? It contains every app integrated including Visio, Project and SharePoint designer.

It's been known from some time. The question is will MS get SKUs right like they did with Windows 7 and messed up with Office 2007, Vista?

Upgrade editions have always been a PITA. If I want the convenience of booting of my USB flash drive to start setup, I have no choice but to buy the full version. Imagine the nightware when service...

Paul, is that SKU comparison absolutely accurate? I think Home Premium doesn't have Fax...

Nothing secret about it..there's an announcement on the Windows team blog.

How many features does Hotmail have compared to Gmail? It's like a 1:100 ratio. Gmail settings and Labs let you totally customize everything, so many aspects. I Hotmail team if you're listening, I...

I was pissed by the removal of Classic Start menu initially in Windows 7 but since there's no killer search box, I've always wanted to get rid of Classic Start menu yet have some of its benefits...

@Waethorn, hmm I know SM2.0 is only DirectX 9.0, not 9.0c but Aero requires only SM2.0, it doesn't require SM3.0. Also, VMware could use WARP or Compute Shaders, so at least Windows 7 can surely run...

@aemarques, that's a bit incorrect. DirectX 9.0c (SM 3.0) support is present in VMware Workstation 6.5 however the additions/integration components don't have WDDM support. Once VMware has a WDDM...

Appears to be super dumbed down. Not much control over anything and basic protection. Not expecting much from FREE.

Can you say what's new or changed instead of just specifiying the build number?
Monday, June 15, 2009 - 18:20
Be sure to compare the configurability of the OS...that is the Control Panel options/System preferences options one by one in did. Most of the OS GUI of both OSes lies in this...

What is changed/different can you please tell Paul? Any changes in Windows Explorer/taskbar?
Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - 21:13
And I expect some Vista/Windows 7 features to show XP users the thumb.
Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - 21:06
One thing I'd like to see is customizability and full control over settings i.e.fine tuning the AV. Compared to the configurability we have in Norton 2009 or Kaspersky, OneCare was really a sad joke...

If you are comfortable with the Windows Automated Installation Kit and capturing the installed image and performing a "Generalize" on it, SP2 can be slipstreamed into an ISO with Vista-with-SP1.
Friday, May 15, 2009 - 23:13
I remember those days when I could slipstream a service pack into the original setup files. Neither Vista nor everyone's beloved Windows 7 can do it without reverse integration which is needlessly...

Seriously you are concerned about spelling inconsistencies, when there are serious usability issues with the shell/Windows Explorer ever since VISTA debuted? Features needlessly and thoughtlessly...

Is there ANY way to download Silverlight-streamed videos (that first video)? That's the only thing I don't like about Silverlight.

It's Windows 7 only (when all it uses is VPC and RDP) and people seem to be very happy about that. :-!

Age of Empires I and II (and Rise of Rome and Conquerors expansions) work flawlessly NATIVELY on Windows 7, why would anyone then want it to run in the XP Mode Virtual machine? Btw, Virtual PC sucks...

You still don't need to manually adjust, you can choose Tile windows horizontally although there's no Aero snap.

Features removed from Windows 7. I doubt with so many features removed from the shell as well, if XP users are gonna upgrade. People want file and folder size more than HomeGroups and they want...

Yeah and anyways, MS has said Windows 8 or whatever it'll be named will be NT 6.2 and now NT 7.0. There's never gonna be an NT 7.0 for the forseeable future.
Monday, April 13, 2009 - 19:48
I'll hang on to XP till support ends and serious security vulnerabilities start going unpatched. Until Microsoft adds back critical...

They're trying to copy Keychain but still can't figure out what to do with it and how to do it. Just see how many passwords Keychain stores [ OS) ] to save...

"Guest Network" looks similar to "HomeGroup" as in limiting with whom you can share what.
