It's a secret to no one that Windows 8 isn't the winner that Microsoft planned it to be, with its uptick being worse than Vista's - something a lot of us didn't even realize would be possible. With Windows 9, or whatever it'll be called upon release, Microsoft has to produce a successful release in order to make those... Read more...
As we noted earlier, Windows 8's reception to date has been tepid at best. As much of a train-wreck that many considered Vista to be, even it had greater adoption six months after launch. There are multiple factors that can be blamed here, with one at the forefront being Microsoft's new-fangled Start screen... Read more...
As we reported on earlier, geek super hero Bill Gates took to Reddit's AMA section to tackle as many questions from users as possible in the span of just a single hour. In the end, he did quite well, answering a total of 35 questions tackling a wide-range of different subjects. One question that just has to be asked... Read more...
Windows XP provided us with some great memories, didn't it? Perhaps more importantly, it helped us through the Vista era, which really wasn't as bad as some make it out to be, but did get off to a rocky start, regardless of whether you want to blame Microsoft or those who write drivers for hardware. Wonky network performance, slow file transfers,... Read more...
When the first Service Pack shipped for Windows Vista, it was a pretty big deal. After all, it took several performance and reliability updates to turn what debuted as a buggy OS into a serviceable platform, all of which were rolled into SP1, and then some. Windows 7 has gotten off to a much smoother start, but hey... Read more...
It's no huge secret that Windows 7 is a massive success story. It's hard to say if people were excited about Win7's features or just happy to leave Vista, but either way, Microsoft has managed to move a lot of licenses since the product's launch last year. This week, Microsoft crossed the 150 million mark, with a 150... Read more...
Windows 7 has been on the market for over a full quarter now, so it's about time for a check on how the OS is doing. According to figures from Net Applications, the system looks to be doing quite well. So well, in fact, that the growth rate is making Vista's old launch growth rate look mighty bad in comparison. A peek... Read more...
WD (Western Digital) is starting to use a new hard disk drive format that enables 7-11% greater capacity on hard disk drives. The disk expansion technique is known as Advanced Format. This technique takes advantage of changes in the industry in drive sector sizes and consolidates overhead information to free up additional space for data storage.... Read more...
Here goes Sony claiming another world's first. If you'll recall, the company made a pretty big fuss over its VAIO P when that launched back at CES. It refused to call it a netbook (probably due to the fact that Windows Vista was loaded on), but most everyone else assumed it really was the planet's most expensive (and... Read more...

Windows Vista.The upgrade will include getting rid of all the Office 2003 programs and installing Office 2007 in its place, and is scheduled for a Dec. 31 completion date. Half the Army's computers (they have 744,000 desktop units) have Office 2007 so far... Read more...
Really, Microsoft? Has it come to this? During last night's highly watched NCAA Men's Basketball tournament, Microsoft decided to buy pretty much every single ad slot from the first tip to the final basket in order to grab Apple by the collar, slap it around a time or two and then spit on it as it walked away. We've seen the Mac vs. PC ads... Read more...
