Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

More Windows 7

Well he should be happy!

After the slating Microsoft received resulting from the introduction of Vista (a deserved slating I should add) I imagine that spirits are high in Redmond following the launch of the public beta of Windows 7.

Reactions have been most favourable - here are some examples: LINK

And HERE is an excellent summary of many of the features of the new operating system.

For myself, well as I reported the other day, I have been using it and I have to say that apart from the almost incredible fact that Google has not yet provided a version of Chrome that is fully compatible with the 64-bit version of Windows 7, I am delighted and would very much like to buy the finished version when it appears.  

Finally for the academic and technical types, this site provides a great deal of detailed and fascinating information.

Once again I must express the hope that Microsoft moderates its prices; 7 is a great opportunity for the company to restore its battered reputation.

Until the next time
