Windows just gets more retard with each release

9 Nov

Well I have windows 7 premium, i thought it would be a lot better than Vista. It is in some aspects but in some parts it is not. It is depressing. I want to install a language pack other than English and I cannot do that because my windows is premium. You can only install lanuage packs on Ultimate and Enterprise. WTF?! Seriously? i have to pay extra to have a function that had always come basic with previous version of windows? Microsoft are your developers or marketers on crack? seriously? SERIOUSLY!!

no wonder people are turning to either Linux or Mac because it actually allows basic freaking features such as this exist!! Hell i just installed Linux on my computer so i can actually do things instead of paying for an “ultimate” version of windows to get what i want.  I keep windows because unfortunately some program only work on windows and not linux >_>. Damn Microsoft i hope your reading this, your marketing ideas or profiting ideas just get more depressing with each release. Its like you don’t really listen to the customers with taking away this option. You just lost a customer windows because my next computer will definitely have a Mac OS or any other OS that is not Windows installed.

Hmmm…Bing!

26 Jun

I approve off Bing from Microsoft ^^. Pretty nice stuff they did for their search engine, better image searching with filters on how to view pictures and stuff. Also with the video searching it makes things a lot more simple, might become my new home page instead of Firefox default start. Plus it feels like one of those calendars you flip through everyday that gives a fact about anything.

Is this where I start to wave byebye to google??

Faster & Easier -> Jump Lists

29 Jan

Windows 7 Beta – > Faster & Easier -> Jump Lists

“With Windows 7, we focused on keeping the things you use most right in front of you. One example: The new Jump List feature. It’s a handy way to quickly reach the files you’ve been working with. To see the files you’ve used recently, just right click on the icon on your taskbar. So right-clicking on the Word icon will show your most recent Word documents. Plus, if there are other files you want to keep handy, you can just pin them to the Jump List.”

Basicly you know how the Vista taskbar menu does that cool little thing where it opens your list of programs right there instead of
in a GIANT LIST that takes you an hour to scroll through after you install all the programs you use? And this time theyre opening it
to the side (where MyDocs and MyComputer are) instead of right there. Whats the best news about this feature..? Well now theyre doing
that for EVERYTHING!!! Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!! Internet Explorer favorites & bookmarks listed automaticly, Microsoft Word recent documents &
quick access to file options, hell even MsPaint has a few menu options there! Just makes things quicker to access which sounds rather trivial
but makes things considerably quicker.

Windows 7 Beta – (Part 1 of ???)

15 Jan

:: Windows 7 Beta ::

*[insert sound of trumpets]*

It has finally come. The beta edition of the next windows operating system has been released for testing. Along with the beta release of Windows Cloud (the server version of Windows 7) soon underway (gee I wonder where they got the idea to call it that? oh yeah –  from APPLE!)

Microsoft Vista was released January 30, 2007, Each new operating system is released every 4 years. This is nothing new, theyre just starting early like always. Nothing new. Honestly I’ve grown quite fond of Vista despite the majority of the population’s constant slander of it.. Yes it is abit of a memory hog, every edition of Microsoft has always taken up a considerable more amount of RAM than it’s predisessors (just never this big of a jump but change is necessary for advancement). I won’t argue that Windows XP is still one of the most stable of all the Windows editions and probably one of the bests ever created from the Windows timeline, but quite frankly Vista’s NOT bad at all. Its not perfect but the only programs that dont work are more in the custom department. Even with the rest theres a secret feature many people arnt away of where if you right-click a program you can run it on Vista using
the WindowsXP settings/parameters as well as certain previous versions. Anyways thats not what this post is about – This is about Windows7.

Apparently they listened to what the users had to say. Windows 7 is being built around our feedback (oh wow theyre finally listening now..? Wonder what made them do that?), so you’ll see a lot of things you’ve asked for. Theyre trying to make everyday tasks faster and easier, make the PC work the way we want it to, and making “new things possible”.

I’ll be posting new features from the 3 Categories of features the new Windows7 is marketing – Faster & Easier, Work your Way, and New Possibilities.

Starting today:

Faster & Easier -> Improved taskbar and full-screen previews


“The taskbar at the bottom of your screen is what you use to switch between the applications you’ve got open. In Windows 7 you can set the order in which the icons appear and they’ll stay put. They’re easier to see, too. Click once on the new large icons or bigger preview thumbnails and you’re ready to go. You can even see a full screen preview before switching to the window.”

One again Microsoft copys Apple! (One again? Wait what are you talking about “once again”?!?). Basicly the dock has been revamped and edited just enough for Windows to claim it as it’s own – atleast the basic idea but atleast this time they took it one or two steps up.
