| erased. Some people are saying that this 
| lack of upgrading compatibility is 
| Microsoft's revenge on you for rejecting

| 2. Under 7, some users have reported 
| problems with XP compatibility mode. This 
| means that some of your programs might

| Major upgrades to Windows client and server 
| platforms introduce extensive changes both

| the very core of the operating systems. 
| Itâs no wonder then, that the installation 
| of new service packs can be prevented by 
| programs designed with the specific purpose

| Early adopters deploying the Beta of the 
| first Service Pack for Windows 7 and 
| Windows Server 2008 R2 can experience 
| installation problems if they are running 
| security software on their computers. 
| According to Microsoft, the issues can 
| affect Service Pack 1 (SP1) Beta when 
| testers attempt to have it integrated on 
| top of Windows 7 RTM and Windows Server 
| 2008 R2 RTM on computers where Microsoft 
| Security Essentials or Microsoft Forefront 
| Client Security are already installed.

| found Linux to be preferable in many ways.
| This is pretty significant progress, and

| unnoticed, too - I haven't seen all that
| many Ubuntu stories in the Wall Street
| Journal. But what comes next is going to
| be pretty challenging for everyone
| involved â and that's what I'll look at
| here.
