motherboards already HAVE USB 3.0. I am looking at my Gigabyte board with my Intel i860 with Sata 3 and USB 3. Biostar AND MSI also have the same and I am sure Asus does as well.

I can picture a bunch of rioting scientists:
Hey Earl, I just changed the scale from metric to the English system!
Hey Joe, I used an 8.0000837 mm ball in the chair instead of the 8.0000000000 mm ball!
John! I added the sign: Get the Lead Out to our Pb
I just put a head on my root beer!
All of them in chorus at the end: Beam me up Scotty! There is no intelligent life down here!
Too much excitement for me!
PS: I am happy it succeeded :)
Having also repaired computes for many years, tar buid-up DOES destroy computers over time. Since this is customer abuse of the machine, it should NOT be covered.
I support Apple completely on this .... I sincerely HOPE that all other manufacturers follow this and not even just computers.
I just don't get why people whine all the time. This is a pretty good way to promote the product. Maybe if you installed the product, you could see many advantages to BOTH the consumer and business.
For business, Direct Access is much better than SSTP (which is good in it's own right). I have Windows 7 running at a decent speed on a netbook with 1 GB RAM. Combine Direct Access with the netbook, and you have an inexpensive solution for road warriors WITHOUT the need to keep sensitive files on your netbook.
For consumers - multimedia redirection is great! Can stream videos anywhere in the house, even on low-end computers. A solid product with a smaller footprint that addresses more than 4 GB ram 64 bit - don't know why anyone would want 32 bit - except on netbooks). Also, Direct X 11 is another plus.
Drivers are good - except for HP with the Office Jet 8500 Wireless working with Acrobat for scanning dual-sided documents. Lotitech webcams also have issues on Windows 7.
Anti-virus - there IS MS solution, but you will need to upgrade your anti-virus to MS or whatever.
I am platform agnostic. I look and experiment to see what is the best - running Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 64 bit (32 bit on netbook), Vista 64 bit, Solaris, Ubuntu, SUSE, Fedora, and more.
PS - I am one of the "lucky" ones to host the Windows 7 party! Not a bad deal, and I get to show several of my mates my network and how good multimedia redirection is with Server 2008 R2/Windows 7.
Can someone *PLEASE* explain to me the hatred for the ribbon bar? It is one of the *BEST* designs to come from Microsoft. Before, hit File, drop down menu - and see another drop down arrow to get to the additional choices. You can change some setting somewhere to always have all items displayed, but what a pain. With the ribbon bar, all features are accessible rather quickly as you go from one ribbon bar to another. YES, you DO have to learn where the items are located, but once you actually use it for awhile, it becomes second nature. Custom ribbon bars are EASY to create and use XML. I find it odd that "IT folks" are against change.....
Instead of complaining, what has MS done right?
Windows Server 2003 R2 and 2008/2008 R2
Silverlight 3.0 (wow, 64 bit support, who would have thunk??? Adobe - get a clue)
Still have issued with Project 2007, OCS 2007 R2, and more, but they do have some decent products.
NOTE: I run Solaris x8, Many Linux distros, Windows, etc. and have programmed on pretty much every platform. I am platform agnostic and EVERY O/S, application, etc has BOTH good and bad. Once you add a GUI, Linux is no longer as stable as a server....
Well MAYBE if there 1 and 1,5TB hard drives were not such utter cr*p, they would be raking the money in still! SD15 is a swear word. Have recently purchased two 1 TB WD hard drives - hope they last. At least they still have a 5 year warranty!
