Infamous Chinese pirates launch Ubuntu that looks just like Windows XP (Download Squad)

Dec 27th 2009 10:42AM Hmm... the menu bar and the applications menu look completely different to those shown on the screenshot in the article. Seems like the latter was taken from actual Windows...

iGoogler turns iGoogle into a desktop app - in the simplest way possible (Download Squad)

May 14th 2009 4:13PM Hmm... From the review, I gather that this app does the same thing as Mozilla Prism, except Prism can turn ANY website into a "desktop app", while iGoogler only works with iGoogle.

And I've been using Prism on Linux since Nov. 1st (thanks to my hacking skills =p )

Miniature OSes let you perform tasks without booting your PC (Download Squad)

Nov 6th 2007 8:35PM As far as I know, the ASUS motherboard is for Desktop PCs. As such, I think it's pretty useless.
For laptops, I think it's a great idea. Many times I have to turn on the computer just to check one little thing on the internet. (I don't like suspending very much, because it uses up battery. And booting from a hibernated state takes almost as much as booting up from the beginning, so I always turn off my laptop).
My computer comes with "InstantOn" installed, which is a program that lets me browse my hard drive to see pictures, play music, and (most importantly) watch DVDs. I use it when I watch a DVD on the computer, because it uses less battery.

Share files online with DivShare (Download Squad)

Jul 14th 2007 10:27AM OldCat:
I just went to the mediafire website, and on the front page it says "Up to 100MB per File".
So that leaves mediafire with no advantages over divshare...

Microsoft Silverlight coming to a Linux box near you (Download Squad)

Jun 24th 2007 9:12PM Well, Kevin M., I bet it will be. Mono has nothing to do with Microsft, other than that they are implementing a FOSS version of .Net. In fact, Mono is available in Debian, Ubuntu, and probably in the Gentoo repositories.

Vista is rolling in the cash (Download Squad)

Mar 28th 2007 10:31AM Now you have to consider that twice as many computers were sold now than in 2002. Relevant information from an AP article on Yahoo:

"But given that the personal computer market has nearly doubled since XP launched, Vista sales "probably should be more," said Michael Silver, vice president of research at Gartner, a technology research group.

The analyst said 51 million PCs were sold to consumers worldwide in 2002; this year, the research group predicts 96 million consumers will buy a computer.

Starting in late October, PC makers included coupons for free or low-cost Vista upgrades that could be used once the software became available at the end of January. Microsoft's February sales total includes those promised upgrades, in addition to licenses ordered by PC makers to install on new computers, shrink-wrapped copies sold in retail stores and downloads from the Windows Marketplace Web store.

Silver estimates PC makers sold between 12 million and 15 million PCs with Windows XP Home Edition over the holidays — a significant chunk of the 20 million total, depending on how many included Vista coupons."

Microsoft's boring first Vista ad - VIDEO (Download Squad)

Dec 5th 2006 7:26PM I don't know if I should confess, but I'll do it anyway: I watched the whole video. Did I miss something? When did it say anything about Vista other than the logo in the beginning and in the end?
