Review: Windows Live Photo Gallery–Wave 4 Beta

There’s never been a product from Microsoft that I would use to manage my photos or documents. Microsoft has always been too rigged on how they want to do stuff, it never flowed well enough to use on a regular basis.

Ubuntu 10.04 Wallpapers – Awesome

The new Ubuntu wallpaper/desktop backgrounds are awesome. It’s really a fantastic collection of some stunning images/photos.
