Allchin says Vista won't need antivirus (Download Squad)

Nov 10th 2006 5:40PM I too have never installed an anti-virus or spyware tool. If you know the risks and can manage them, then you don't need these tools.

Sysinternals now Windows Sysinternals (Download Squad)

Nov 9th 2006 1:05AM The SysInternals tools have saved my life many a times so it great to see them officially become part of Windows. The tools are certainly worthy of replacing many of the original (and now outdated) Microsoft equivalents and fill quite a few gaps.

Microsoft on Vista: It's done! (Download Squad)

Nov 8th 2006 4:18PM Oh dear here we go. Let's not get carried away and take "rock solid" literally, it's just an expression meaning it is more stable than any previous version. And of course there will be bugs found, but just watch the anti-Microsoft crowd make a big deal out of the slightest faults.

Dell customer gets Windows refund (Download Squad)

Nov 8th 2006 4:09PM @4, yes why? Dell must be doing something right to be the worlds top PC maker. I have several Dell machines, workstations and servers and some are 7 years old and still going strong.

@2, the D620 is on the PC Pro A List and I too have seen it up close and found no issues with the LCD on this model, so I wonder if you just had a bad unit. (In the end I went for the D420 because it was lighter.)

As for getting a refund from the vendor, maybe a time will come when the OS choices include No Operating System (included in price).

And ten years from now, a version of Windows will still be around.

Microsoft is battling Google with its new Virtual Earth (Download Squad)

Nov 7th 2006 4:21PM I don't mind the virtual billboards. In fact if they advertise lcoalised services and products, even better.
