Windows 7 to Usher in Profitless Prosperity

,----[ Quote ]
| Meanwhile, Dell is shipping the very first netbook, a $299 
| Mini 10v, with version 2.1 of the Intel-backed Moblin Linux-
| based operating system. Other netbooks running Moblin will 
| soon hit the market, and Jim Zemlin, executive director of 
| The Linux Foundation, was quoted at the recent LinuxCon 
| conference as saying that they will arrive at very low price 
| points.  Only Apple, it seems, is able to maintain a healthy 
| business selling portable computers at premium prices. And 
| Apple wonât even play in the netbook market.
| Still, despite the arrival of Moblin netbooks, Windows 7 will 
| be the pace-setting operating system on new netbooks and 
| laptops heading into the holiday season. In fact, as 
| InfoWorld reports, itâs already on one in 67 personal 
| computers in advance of its official release, due to early 
| availability for users with volume licenses, and it has 
| gotten rave reviews. Itâs also being aggressively marketed by 
| Microsoft.


A Review of the Pirated Copy of Windows 7 I Bought On eBay

| The official release of Windows 7 is only a few weeks away, 
| and if youâre anything like me, youâre probably asking 
| yourself what effect this will have on your lives. Will the 
| gates of Heaven open up and a consort of large breasted 
| angels descend to guide you into computing heaven? Or will it 
| be more of a low key affair, maybe involving the cast of 
| Friends and a degrading video?



After Vista flop, Indian CIOs not open to new Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, the worldâs largest software maker, may be throwing parties for
| potential customers to test its Windows 7 operating system to be launched in
| October, but many chief information officers (CIOs) are not joining the party
| yet.
| Reliance Communications, Asian Paints, Essar Group and some other companies will
| wait to see how efficient the new product of Microsoft is before shifting to it,
| after the Vista failed to deliver on the promise of a faster and sleeker
| operating system.
| âIâm in no hurry to rip and replace my existing OS (operating system),ââ said
| Manish Choksi, chief information officer (CIO) at Asian Paints which has 2,500
| desktops and about 100 servers.
