256

Windows 8: Don’t buy it!

As Microsoft decides to drop another version of their operating system [Windows 8] in 2012, the only thing I can think of is how little an update Windows 7 was from Windows Vista.

How to: Install Windows Live Essentials 2011 Offline

I’m not a big fan of web installers. I find them a complete PITA because you may not always have an Internet connection, and if people like Microsoft start insisting on these types of installers it’s just going to be bad. The new Windows Live Essentials just came out and everything for the Microsoft team …
