James Bond?

Dick Tracey had them before James Bond. It's a start, just think in another year or two they will be thinner, and smaller. Just the opposite of me...

Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 planned for 2009

Jim
Stop

Listen to who?

Who did they listen to? Certainly not the Beta testers, Take a view at the IE8 blog, the best Microsoft could is to say, "NO" So much for all the PR Bull Stick that Microsoft has put out that they have changed, that Windows is "Lift with out Walls." IE 8 will fail like Vista, and Microsoft will still be saying, "We don't understand, Why do you love us?" Hey Dean you might want to try a mohave experiment For IE 8, so that way your Bosses can say see everybody really loves us, it just the news media and the beta testers being negative... Now the real question is what will IE 9 be called?

If you Love Vista, You will Love Windows 7 However if you hate Vista you will hate Windows 7

I have the Pre-Beta make no doubt about it is Vista. In my opinion it is what service pack 2 should bring to Vista. For those of you who don't like Vista's UI, you will not like Windows 7 UI. To put it in the vernacular of American Presidential candidates, You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig....

Now for the many people who say, "Why all this Vista bashing? For me it's because every major problem in Vista was brought out in the Betas of Vista yet Microsoft chose to ignore them. Microsoft has said on numerous occasion that they have learned from their mistakes with Vista. Now I will admit Microsoft won't be doing this in the upcoming Betas of windows 7. here is a quote from Mike Nash Corporate Vice President, Windows Product Management, Microsoft Corp;

"The next phase for the development team is getting to beta. For Windows 7 this will be a feature complete beta and we expect that to be available to customers in early 2009. Feature complete means that we will not be adding any new features once we get to beta (since they are all there) but will instead focus on fixing bugs that we find in our testing and in feedback that customers give us"

As you can see Microsoft has eliminated the problem of Beta testers complaining about what they don't like in the up coming Windows 7 Betas, the betas are now only for bugs. So if you don't like something it's go away or we don't want to hear that. I hope I'm wrong with this only time will tell....

Windows 7 borrows from OS X, avoids Vista

Jim

Windows 7

Will wait to get the beta but as far as the UI goes with Julie Larson-Green in charge, she the same woman who gave us office 2007 and put up a wall when it came to choice. A major complaint in Vista was there was no choice when it came to the UI so Microsoft put the very same woman in charge who was totally against choice for Office, talk about making the same mistakes over and over again. The only thing I can say if I wanted Apple, I would buy apple, I want Windows, why can't windows have it's own identity, why dose it have to be a knock off of Apple?

Developers to get Windows 7 pre beta next month

Jim
IT Angle

Time will tell, or bad pun

Will Microsoft get this one right? Are is this just going to be, "Life with Walls." Judging by the IE 8 beta 2 this is just going to be another brick in the wall...

Trying to hard

It's cutesy, The problem I perceive is I would take it as a commercial for Windows 7 not Vista. If they keep building up who-ha a lot of people are going to be disappointed when they find out it’s the same old hash. My suggestion to Microsoft is instead of spending $$$ on trying to get people to love Vista, actually address what people don’t like about Vista. Then roll it out in a service pack. I see four major problems with Vista, UI, UAC, DRM and hardware compatibility. Allow more freedom with the UI, unlock it so users and third party companies can actually customize it. UAC and DRM allow users easier control over it including turning it off if they so desire. Work with hardware vendors to improve drivers. These were the major issues in the Beta’s of Vista and Microsoft still has not figured it out. Stop trying to coerce people to love Vista, just fix the problems and people will want to use it…

location bar

location bar/ address bar, needs a disable option. IE6,7 and 8 beta has the ability to to disable searches from the address bar, FF3 dose not; A lot of people have complained about the lack of a disable option, Mozilla has so just ignored. As Mozilla says they know better than users, because their, and I quote "Experienced software engineers and HCI experts" I am overwhelmed and awed by their vast intelligence,
