  1. Review - Destroy Windows 10 Spying

    1.5 Build 328 (Sep 2, 2015)

    Not even close to being good compared to O&O ShutUp10

  2. Review - O&O ShutUp10

    1.0.1344.1 (Aug 27, 2015)

    Already the 4th update since I started using it. They seem to be working hard to keep it on par with all the Windows 10 changes MS keeps injecting. Keep it up O&O!

  3. Review - Mozilla Firefox (64-bit Beta)

    41.0 Beta 3 (Aug 21, 2015)

    They are driving me further towards Chrome with their frenzied, unfocused feature changes. The only think keeping me using this browser is the extensive library of addons/extensions. But they are undermining that great foundation by deciding to work with Chrome extensions as well. We need to maintain a base of Firefox specific addons/extensions to encourage people to maintain those. If Mozilla just starts aping everything Chrome, there's no reason to stick with Firefox at all.

  4. Review - WSUS Offline Update

    10.0 (Aug 21, 2015)

    This really, really needs the ability to do a 100%, complete and comprehensive offline update. Right now it does a partial one, then requires the user to connect to a Microsoft server to access some data files before continuing.

    They should download that data information at the time they download the offline update files so that you don't need to connect to Microsoft at all.

    It seems like such an obvious thing. I hope they get on it.

  5. Review - O&O ShutUp10

    1.0.1342.1 (Aug 21, 2015)

    The start of something great. Everything you need to get a handle on negating the invasive data collection MS has chosen to build into Windows 10. We need tools like this. We need easy to use, free, thorough utilities to help users take back their privacy. Kudos to O&O for taking this first step. I look forward to their next update.

  6. Comment - Nvidia improves performance, not power, ahead of E3 with new notebook GPU

    1.0.1342.1 (Jun 1, 2011 - 7:04 PM)

    I thought the new 485M was the top performer in the graphic market for Nvidia on the Mobile side?

  7. Comment - Tip: Recover valuable disk space after installing Windows 7 SP1

    1.0.1342.1 (Feb 27, 2011 - 1:30 PM)

    Will CCleaner also take care of removing these files?

  8. Comment - Tip: Protect your PC with Paragon Backup & Recovery (Advanced) Free 2011

    1.0.1342.1 (Feb 14, 2011 - 11:30 PM)

    Cool info. Thanks!

    I've been using Paragon Partition Manager for the last few years and it has been very reliable and capable for me, which Partition Magic stopped being for some reason.

    I'll give this app a try. Free = Win!

  9. Comment - LibreOffice 3.3: Fast, fun and functional

    1.0.1342.1 (Feb 8, 2011 - 7:40 PM)

    There is a list of how many features are in LibreOffice not in OpenOffice on their page, and there are a lot, including more aggressive support for open standards such as SVG, and they have already been chosen to replace OpenOffice in an increasing number of Linux distributions, including Ubuntu and OpenSuse (I believe). Many of the coders that used to work on OpenOffice have moved over to LibreOffice, so the people most familiar with the codebase are no longer contributing to OpenOffice. It also looks like development in LibreOffice is going to be more constant and less stagnant than OpenOffice.

  10. Comment - LibreOffice 3.3: Fast, fun and functional

    1.0.1342.1 (Feb 7, 2011 - 6:05 PM)

    Not perfect but it is on a better path than OpenOffice and if they can improve the SVG support and include hardcore updates to the help / documentation, I would see no reason to go with OpenOffice at all.
