      Too bad it’s not gonna happen. Hey, a guy can dream, can’t he?

  • Clearing Up Misinformation About the Leaked Windows 7 Build

    I’m starting to see more and more chatter about the Windows 7 build that was “leaked” (I would say stolen) from WinHEC China. I can already see the beginnings of the misinformation campaign that damaged Windows Vista in the Court of Public Opinion, so I’m going to nip some things in the bud right here...

  • Microsoft To Replace OneCare With New Free Solution… And a Win7 Hint?

    Microsoft just sucker-punched McAfee and Symantec right in the stones today with a carefully-worded press release about the future of Windows Security. In a move I’ve been anticipating since the inclusion of Windows Defender into Windows Vista, Microsoft has made it clear, on no uncertain terms, that...

  • Enable The SuperBar in Windows 7 Pre-Beta!

    One of the big disappointments of the Pre-Beta build was the lack of the New Taskbar, which is referred to internally as the SuperBar. We had been told that the feature was not in the build at all. But Raphael, one of our friends from Within Windows, was handed a note at PDC instructing him to dig deeper...

  • Mark Russinovich Explains MinWin Once and For All

    A lot of people assume that MinWin is a Microsoft effort to completely rewrite the Windows Kernel from scratch. That may be based on earlier (limited) explanations about what it does, or it may have a lot to do with people assuming, due to people’s efforts with open source software, that rewriting the...

  • Apple Should Count Its Own Beans First

    Apple’s latest ad, “ Bean Counter ”, attempts to claim that Microsoft should have spent the $300M it used on its latest marketing campaign on fixing Vista’s issues. Let’s set aside the fact that Windows 7 sticks it to Apple (hard core), or that Apple can’t ship anything without a v0.1 release 4 days...

  • Posting Will Be Light Today

    Unfortunately, my travel arrangements are forcing me to head home today, and I’ll be spending a good portion of the day in the air. So I’ll be missing out on all the cool stuff going on today, but I’ll be wrapping up my in-depth review of Windows 7 on the plane, so hopefully you’ll be able to check it...

  • PDC 2008, Here I Come! (and a Caption Contest)

    At practically the last minute, I was invited to a briefing at PDC on Windows 7. As exciting as it all sounded, I wasn’t planning on attending at all… but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to be one of the first to get a guided tour the hotly-anticipated followup to Widows Vista. Since I’m not a short...

  • Not Even a Beta, “Windows 7” Gets a Name

    AFAIK, this is the earliest that a Windows release has ever been named. It’s not even a beta yet, and the marketing has already begun. I think that is probably good news… especially for the people that have been covering “Windows 7” in earnest. Because the new name for the next release is… “Windows 7...
