What is WinToFlash
WinToFlash is a software for transfer your Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 2008, Windows 7 setup from CD or DVD to flash in some mouse clicks. This is about you can install your Windows from flash card, USB stick, HDD, etc to your computer or netbook.

And this is not all it can do. WinToFlash can transfer your live CD/DVD to flash card, for example, BartPE. After all you can erase your Flash card and format it with you Windows for every day use.

Everyone is entitled to their Opinion. I have the Snow Leopard DVD on my desk Waiting for me to install (backing up files right now) and I have Windows 7 on pre-order. From what I have seen of the Win 7 RC its a good OS. Its all about Personal preference.

Hey Mac, Long time no see. Glad to see you around.

You might want to check this out: http://www.businessweek.com/the_thread/techbeat/archives/2009/08/snow_leopard_pr.html

I guess there are some compatability problems with some printers and Snow Leopard. ( Which is normal for any new OS)

Thanks for the article Bob. I found it very balanced. (the author doesn't strike me as being a Win fanboy... pardon the term)

I'm exited to finally see the final win 7 release but I'm worried it might turn out to follow in the foot steps of Vista. I recall a very popular tv show that had the RC I think for vista, or had seen it at a technology show , and they were enthusiastic about it. However the final product ended up lacking some components and being slower than what they originally showed. This was on TV so all I have to go on is memory. If this is wrong please tell me.

Not a chance. :) I've been using Windows 7 since early beta and even then it was better than Vista and has only matured.
If you have a problem with Vista then the simple cure is to upgrade to Windows 7.  :)

If Win 7 lives up to your praises bob then I won't be surprised if Vista "vanishes" in the next 2-3 years. My Vista will go before that. ;D

Not sure whether Bluescreenview has already featured on the thread -

http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,80367/description.html?tk=rss_downloads_weekly_null

I have not download as yet. Nor can I provide the ideal download site.
But looks promising.
