Windows 7 RTM on MSDN, TechNet Commented on: 4 years ago (August 7, 2009) This was managed MUCH better than the Beta downloads back in January. Very smooth. All versions available on MSDN, life is good :-)
Classic Start Menu for Windows 7 ... for a price Commented on: 5 years ago (June 29, 2009) Sure. Why not. I hadn't realized that the Vista/Win7 Start Menu was that difficult...
Windows 7 question of the day: Do you get 32-bit or 64-bit discs? And the answer is.... (UPDATED) Commented on: 5 years ago (June 26, 2009) I'm disappointed to see that Dell's guaranteed upgrade policy only goes like-for-like (ie, you can only upgrade to Win7 x64 for free if your laptop came with x64). Allow me to once again remind...
Clean install with Windows 7 Upgrade media? What about x64 upgrades? Commented on: 5 years ago (June 25, 2009) Why, exactly, does ANYBODY want to perform an "in-place" upgrade? -32- to 64-bit won't work PERIOD (nor should it, given the disastrous app/driver compatibility issues it would introduce). -XP to...

Secret No More: Revealing Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 Commented on: 5 years ago (April 24, 2009) This is totally AWESOME. I do some development work, and this gives me the opportunity to maintain an Office 03/VS05/VB6 environment with incredible ease. I disagree with Ken that not making this...
Microsoft: XP is supported through April 2014 Commented on: 5 years ago (April 13, 2009) This is an amusing discussion to watch, really. Lindy, tayme, you're both right. Vista wasn't a great choice for corporate environments. The new driver model and UAC did, indeed break a lot of...
Microsoft announces Windows Server 2008 Foundation Commented on: 5 years ago (April 1, 2009) Microsoft has moved into a very interesting marketing strategy, evident both from this product and the forthcoming Win7 Starter edition. Provide a low-content, BASIC version of the OS, and give the...
