...you only see what you want to see in what I write.  I LIKE Windows XP, maybe the words "post-XP Microsoft operating system" in my sig are too complex for you....go ahead be a sheep...I don't care.  I just read the 5 page description of Win 7's backup proceedure.... I could back up and restore with Norton Ghost about 5 times, in the time it took me to read that.  I don't hate Microsoft....I just hate what they are DOING.  No one is MAKING them do what they do, in fact, sheep like you are WHY they are doing what they are doing.

Here's another little fact for you:  Guess what the best OS for overclocking is?  You got it....32bit Windows XP  :)

Try real hard to either comment on the topic at hand or refrain from wasting space....anyone can flame like a grade-schooler  :/

 

Take an OS, and edit out all the efficiency, and what you have left is a post-XP Microsoft operating system :)

......delays....smells a lot like the Vista rollout.  The really sad part is:  Customers are gonna rush out and buy Windows 7 and it's gonna come installed on everything....THEN the crap will start...yet again  :/

 Dude, just go buy a Mac already since it's clear Microsoft will never EVER do anything that you will see as acceptable. Or I've got a better idea, just go and build your own OS since you seem to be able to do so much better than Microsoft...

Better yet build your own PC and install Linux.

maybe after the stint with the other company that had released activation keys or something like that. so staggering releases would aid in their process to keep track in case something like that happens again.

 I can see them doing that. IBM ruined it for everyone else!

my company has an EA agreement with Microsoft.  One of the sys admins told me we'll get our RTM copy on August 8th

"That means OEMs hoping to include third-party software, like antivirus
software, or drivers for specific hardware devices have to wait as well."

 

I HATE bloat-ware

nekollx

The first thing i do when i buy a new computer is run a program called Decrapifier. It removes the crippled,limited software that all PC manufacturers install.
