Windows 7 Feature List…

leave a comment »

Here’s a great summary list of Windows 7 feature list from Paul Thurrott SuperSite for Windows… I am been using Windows 7 on my home machine and laptop for the last 4 days now and it’s been pleasantly surprising to me how stable and better it is compare to Vista SP1. Granted, there are still some issue since this is pre-beta build like the sleep feature on the laptop does not work and the Aero glass has some quirks in it from time to time (turning to black color bar instead, though still with Aero on)… The rest of the new features, particular Libraries… I just love it!

Can’t wait for the actual beta release early next year…

Skeptical as it is, being a controlled environment, Vista’s been good to me

I have been on Vista since Beta 2 days and till today. from AMD x2 to Intel Quad (DIY built, as always… Never own any branded PC in my entire life) now to all sorts of motherboards and graphic cards and RAMs… Vista has been nice to me, with no hardware drivers issue but only software compatibilities in the early days.

They are all modern stuff (less than 2 years old) and of course the experience with Vista ought to be all right. My short statement of Vista is simply this, ‘It’s the best Windows operating system ever, the most secure, the more elegant… and it’s still a Windows after all’ I won’t even be bullish to claim it is the BEST Operating System out there… cos that really depends on what you measure.

Vista will run fine on modern machine! Linux fanatics will brag about their five year old machine running modern Linux OS fine and blah blah… Tell that to Apple OSX! But OSX won’t run well with old machine and needs, just like Vista a modern machine… Why? Cos it got all the bells and whistles on top of the core OS stuff… and THAT is exactly what bogs Vista down on a less than modern machine.

The software issue are more of less fixed by now after Service Pack 1… just like XP days as well. The delays and the over promised under delivered feature stuff, in my opinion has been what kills Vista before it even open its gate to showcase. Negative press after another on that… just sank the whole thing and Microsoft did nothing.

I for one thought that Microsoft management were noble enough not to retaliate like the Coke – Pepsi ads in the 80s and 90s… there is just no end. I don’t know if that was part of the reason of not retaliating or simply too ashamed to speak up. :)    

Here’s a recent campaign from Microsoft to finally, turn the marketing pitch on Vista up another notch. After almost 2 years of bashing… It’s finally time! What took them so long? 🙂

Microsoft Live Wave 3… coming

leave a comment »

According to a discussion with a friend in the localisation (translation of content to localised language) industry whom is in charge of Microsoft account, that there’s some exciting stuff coming this year end of the Live initiative front! I asked him what is that all about as they are already localising the contents (help, menu…) but he refused to disclose due to NDA, which is very respectable.

That only left me to speculate what could possibly be coming from the new Live stuff?

Guess this might be the only clue I know for now…

Could this be true?

A little trick and the truth about Vista came out?

It’s all in the perception… and Microsoft certainly did nothing in the last 18 months… simply because Vista and its’ compatibilities & drivers issue are real. Since SP1, things have changed.

Have fun with Vista!
