  • Herding Cattle - Pulling the 16-bit plug

    Note: I thought I’d start a new little gimmick on my blog here - I’ve got a bunch of feature requests that I’d like the developers at Microsoft to take a look at, and I’m sure a lot of the other bloggers and visitors to this site do as well. I gave up on trying to think of a catchy...

  • A Longhorn Wish

    I had the unfortunate experience of formatting my computer and reinstalling Windows XP over the last two days (reason was hardware related). After installing XP again, I thought of a couple things I would love to see in Longhorn. The first being no restarts during setup (I think the PDC build is already...

  • Longhorn pre-Beta 1 For All!

    Well this news is definitely excellent as far as I am concerned because I am unable to attend PDC and get a free copy of Longhorn. WinNetMag is reporting that Microsoft will make Longhorn pre-Beta 1 available for a small fee and also ship it for free to MSDN subscribers. I dont think this has ever happened...
