Mexican Cartels are not the only players pirating software, peddling it to whoever they can, and using the proceeds for criminal purposes.
I for one will support any devices or technology MS...

WHS Build Date 10-7-09 (with all updates to 5-10) is working very nicely on our home network. Setup for backing up what you want from the desktop units is quick and intuitive, works just like it's...

If MS wanted to marginalize the XP fans ("holdouts") they would not have extended the XP support to 2014.
Besides, most of us would rather purchase the full version of any new OS...

Have always been first in line for the yet-next-version of MS OS's and Windows, ever since DOS-3.2. "However", after the past two (plus) years of trying to get Vista Home Premium 64-bit functional...

Normally, a "position" is not necessarily the same as a "job" or an "employee". With the changeover to Vista architecture it might be simpler for MS to change individual packets in order to change...

JMHO, but for my home and office preference it's MS all the way. For my server preference it's Linux. Open Office has some very attractive features, and in some ways is more flexible than the...

The only real problems this Vista 64-bit box has experienced is with pre-existing 3rd party programs or hardware which did not interface well (or at all) with Vista 64-bit. The "fix" was to obtain...

Perhaps the compatability problems with Vista 32 bit have been addressed, however 64 bit Vista has big time problems with vendors being able to interact with Vista-64. If you want the resources of...

This is an excellent idea, worthy of Microsoft. Sometime in the future we will maintain our office "online" with such a service, using encryption to and from, access authorization certified by our...

Very late post here, but... Does the fact that Vista on startup uses 1.25GB (of 4GB onboard) of available RAM mean it is more efficient than, say, W2GPro which is now using about 400MB with two...

Firefox is my choice for testing web pages outside IE. I like it because it forces me to pay closer attention to proper code than IE does. Will be downloading the new version tomorrow.

Numerous problems with Vista Home Premium 64-bit are not simply a matter of perception. For instance, in preparation for Vista I purchased all new components to be ready for Vista. Well over two-...

Thanks for clearing up the support life cycle for XP. Makes me smile.

Doesn't matter if it's the EU or the UN; they all look on the USA as the global feedbag. Too bad MS doesn't just quit marketing or supporting any MS product in the EU. Pull out all their offices,...
