Windows 7's dirty secrets revealed

Will 3
FAIL

@ FTH commenters

Talk about missing the point, the lot of you. The fact that it automatically stops nannying your code when run with a debugger is the best part. Maybe if you had actually tested your code before deploying it then complaining that windows is making it crash less wouldn't be an issue.

*rolleyes*

@ Addition Vs. Deletion?

Attn El Reg: Another Bizarre Microsoft Photoshop??

Check out the differences between the image on the UK splash page and the US splash page:

It appears that for the UK they decided to fix the colour balance of the image... and photoshop out all the balloons! Not entirely as scandalous as the polish black guy photoshop debacle but pretty strange nonetheless...

Will 3
WTF?

@ AMD

Yes, I find it truly surprising that an 8-DIMM dual-opteron setup was not tested in this article for Core i7 memory configs!!

Stop

Fail and You is terrible recently

I'm just commenting here even though nobody is reading it in the vain hopes that somehow my feedback pushes the number of complaints about this so-called "journalist" over a threshold at El Reg offices such that they reconsider letting this drooling simp near a keyboard again without proofreading his articles and making sure they're even remotely entertaining, if not informative, balanced, interesting or humourous.
