Windows 7

Posted 06-08-2009 at 11:24 AM by pereb

Yes, I realize this is a Linux site, but I just have to talk about Windows 7 here for a minute. Anyone else tried it? Iím sure a lot of you have. Iíve been playing around with the release client on my old spare machine, and even though itís running on some old technology (Pentium 4 3.02 GHz, 1 GB ram Ė basically the minimum Microsoft recommends) I have to admit Iím pretty impressed with what Iíve seen so far.

As much as I generally am not a fan of Microsoftís OS, dealing with it...

After visiting again with The Demolished Man, I knew that I was at least as excited about re-reading novels I'd already hit as I was about reading ones I knew nothing about. Case in point, the Hugo Winner for 1959, James Blish's A Case of Conscience.

I haven't touched my motorcycle rebuild job since I hurt my back a while ago! But I keep looking at the poor thing just stood there all alone in the corner of the garage.

Ubuntu 9.04

It's a special Linux Format Magazine edition...
