Omid,
You could always install Win 7 RC   that would upgrade you to the top of the class.  :)
I would upgrade to Win 7 when final version come, not beta/RC :-)

I guess that you need to tell my Vista Home Premium system that it is not supposed to have Protected Mode: On in the Status Bar.  ::)
it has protected mode in IE, but computer management features is limited in windows vista version lower than Ultimate :-(

The RC is extremely stable. I'm currently running it on 1 desktop and 1 laptop. I have not encoutered any problems and, it's free for the next year. :)


Here's an interesting WINDOWS 7 TWEAK GUIDE.
I don't agree with their recommendation to turn off UAC and System Restore in order to gain max system response but, that's a users choice.
I would rather have a system that's a little slower but a lot safer. IMHO :)

Well free until March 2010, then it reboots every two hours and then in June 2010 it ends.

Release Candidate versions are effectively feature locked and very close to what will be the Gold version with only minor bug updates, so as Bob mentions it should be relatively stable.

The answer is yes on my laptop and the second answer is Windows 7.
Win. 7 is much faster and more responsive. I feel that it's a great improvement over Vista. IMHO. :)

Yahoo! 360° Is Closing

This also explains why for quite some time, I haven't been able to make any new entries at Yahoo 360.

Apple extends MacBook Pro Graphics Warranty

Im sure you all remember the trouble all the manufacturers were having with NVIDIA's 8x00 chipsets failing, NVIDIA even admitted to the problems. What I am wondering is if Apple (Or anyone else) replaces the faulty GPU under warranty, whats to say you are not getting another faulty one that will fail outside the warranty period?
