Microsoft's Windows 7 Leaked to Pirates 200°
November 4, 2008 // 9:39 pm - Construction Number 6801 of Windows 7 that was handed out to developers at this year's PDC (Professional Developers Conference) have appeared on various file-sharing network in the weekend. We're talking about both 32 and 64-bit editions.

Built in 6801 are many of the major improvements that are now being praised on the Web, but it lacks the new taskbar that's changed in relation to all other Windows versions.

It is the well-known Windows Network WinBeta that has made Windows 7 available for curious pirates. The file size is 3.6GB packed.

Hands-On: Windows Media Player 12's Surprising New Features 50°
October 30, 2008 // 9:35 pm - Though many previously bundled applets now will ship separately to Windows 7, Windows Media Player remains part of the core OS. Windows 7 will ship with Windows Media Player 12, which includes some surprising new features.

The UI itself is brighter and lighter than WMP11. Some buttons and toolbar items have been moved around, but the experience should be pretty familiar to users of version 11. What does represent a big change is the removal of the Now Playing button, which in WMP11 switches to a view showing the current playlist.

This is because WMP12 completely separates...

First Look at Windows 7's User Interface 50°
October 28, 2008 // 11:49 pm - At PDC today, Microsoft gave the first public demonstration of Windows 7. Until now, the company has been uncharacteristically secretive about its new OS; over the past few months, Microsoft has let on that the taskbar will undergo a number of changes, and that many bundled applications would be unbundled and shipped with Windows Live instead.

There have also been occasional screenshots of some of the new applets like Calculator and Paint. Now that the covers are finally off, the scale of the new OS becomes clear. The user interface has undergone the most radical overhaul and update...

Tips on How to Make Windows Boot Lightening-Fast 50°
October 26, 2008 // 8:36 pm - Many users live with boot problems or re-install Windows and start again, but there is a better way. If you learn what happens during the boot process then you'll be able to diagnose and fix any issues that might arise.

The BIOS

The boot starts with your PC's BIOS, which grabs its settings from CMOS RAM before initialising your video adaptor and any expansion cards. A Power On Self Test does basic hardware checks, tests your RAM if required and usually delivers a single beep to indicate that everything is working.

If there's a problem at this point...

Sanity Check: Five Reasons Why Windows Vista Failed 200°
October 6, 2008 // 8:59 pm - On Friday, Microsoft gave computer makers a six-month extension for offering Windows XP on newly-shipped PCs. While this doesn't impact enterprise IT – because volume licensing agreements will allow IT to keep installing Windows XP for many years to come – the move is another symbolic nail in Vista's coffin.

The public reputation of Windows Vista is in shambles, as Microsoft itself tacitly acknowledged in its Mojave ad campaign.

IT departments are largely ignoring Vista. In June (18 months after Vista's launch), Forrester...

Microsoft's Windows 7 to look like Vista 300°
September 22, 2008 // 4:33 am - Microsoft may be looking to put the mixed reception of Windows Vista behind them, but there is at least one aspect of their latest OS that they're keen to keep alive.

Last week we reported the news that Microsoft seems to have lost faith in Windows Vista and may be releasing Windows 7 earlier than originally proposed. Now the latest on the Windows 7 front is that Microsoft may have not lost as much faith in Windows Vista as originally reported; at least not in one of its most important aspects.

Whether you love or loathe the functionality (or lack thereof) of Windows...

September 21, 2008 // 9:03 pm - Although Googling takes this back to at least 2007 and the Chinese author's Web site linked in the application appears dead, I don't see this in our PS3 Downloads section yet so here goes, from the source link above:
