2.0.45 (Jan 21, 2010)
Completely agree with the reviews below. It is true x64, which puts it leaps and bounds above the others (Foxit, Adobe, etc.). You can write on top of documents and the sort. And it loads with no issues inside of FireFox - I always had issues with Foxit loading in FireFox. And it is fast. This is my new PDF viewer!
0.3.2.1 (Dec 24, 2009)
One of the only 64bit torrent clients, and a good one at that. We need more 64bit software.
1.0 Build 0051 (May 25, 2009)
Finally, a better alternative to TVants.
Faster than TVants.
Doesn't rely on slow Chinese servers like TVants does.
Better interface which keeps up with the times.
There are still some pretty glaring bugs (all of the ones I can find deal with the built in video player), but in time they will be fixed.
Still waiting for a program which can distribute flash streams (RTMP://). StreamTorrent only handles Windows Media MMS:// or HTTP:// streams.
5.9.6082 Beta (Jul 30, 2006)
Just to inform all of you:
The AIM Ad Hack person hasn't released AAH 4.15, but that doesn't mean 4.14 doesn't work with this release.
I installed AIM Ad Hack 4.14 after installed 5.9.6082 (and chose NOT TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL 5.9.3861) and it works great.

I would suggest doing either or both of two things:
1) try installing the updates manually, as they are provided on the Spyware Terminator website on the download page. Here is a direct link to the update file: http://www.spywaretermin...s/1/bin_stdata_pack.cab
2) Go bring up your issue on the Spyware Terminator forums and see if the developers can resolve this issue with you.
I think this version is final. v18.104.22.1682 and v22.214.171.1244 were Release Candidate versions...and the history.txt makes no note of "RC" or "Beta" identifiers for this version. If its final then get out the champagne for 1.6 betas!

This should show major game developers that they would get more sales if they sold games at like $10-$20 pop...not $50-$60.
1 million purchases at $10 = $10,000,000
100,000 purchases at $50 = $5,000,000

"Never mind the traffic issues, you can get Opera 10 final in our FileForum." (FileForum front page). Uhhhhh traffic issues? I didn't know all 10 people downloading Opera would cause traffic issues.

You also forgot "people who need DOS/Win3.1/95/98 for a particular program for a work related task either from a company that went dead, or because it is still under warranty for DOS/Win3.1/95/98 and upgrading the PC will void the warranty or because it works and they are too cheap or stupid to upgrade."
*I worked at a day camp a few years back (2001 maybe?) and they were still using Win 95/98 because they insisted on continued use of a database program for archiving camper registrations.
*I worked at a hospital back in 2003 and the guy I worked for was still using DOS on an old Gateway piece of junk because the program which operated this radiologic film digitizer required DOS. I guess the company went belly up not long after he purchased the digitizer.
*I worked in chemistry last summer (2008) the company was using Win95 on a PC that was connected to a very outdated X-Ray spectrophotometer. They eventually upgraded to a brand new machine controlled by a PC using Windows XP, but the upgrade was well overdue (the machine was 10 years old!). Although in this case it is hard to justify buying a $250,000 machine every time Windows upgrades its operating system.
You might ask: "well why not purchase a brand new PC and just install the software on that computer to control the outdated hardware?"
In some cases they do this. Many hospitals you go to will run old hardware using terribly old software, however being operating on a brand new Windows computer. In these cases, the machine is out of warranty, however still serviced (for a fee) by the company, and the hospital is free to do what they want as far as the software control goes. But in the case that the machine is still under warranty the organization is rarely allowed to manually upgrade the controlling PC without voiding the warranty.

Who is this dope? Has he not visited a Best Buy recently?
6 cell batteries are becoming the norm.
WiMAX and 3G are increasing availability.
Some netbooks have the quickbook linux option for a user-friendly interface to do a quick access of the internet.
10.1" netbooks, now the norm, have quite comfortable keyboards.
Touchscreen? Are you serious? There are so many netbooks which offer touchscreen.
GAC...GET A CLUE!

I think the author wrote this article like...1 year ago, and BetaNews had it in queue for a long time now...lol.
As you said, battery life of 5, 6 and even 7 hours is now becoming the norm. After the EeePC 1000HE and its 9.5 hour claim (more like 7-7.5 with general use), other makers have been scrambling to make their own products with 6 cell batteries that don't jut out the back of the unit. And right now there are at least 4 or 5 products on the market, from different companies, that boast 6+ hour battery life.
Haha, completely agree on the keyboard comment. I have a 1000HE (i think the same size as your 1000H) and the keyboard is perfectly fine. Keyboard sizes have been much improved since the advent of 10.1" netbooks. The days of 8-9" screens are wayyyyy over.
The author's comment on connections is uninformed too. All netbooks have wireless, obviously. Most of them have bluetooth. And there are a handful of quality products which offer an option of 3G, WiMAX, or something similar. How do you think AT&T is able to offer a free netbook with the purchase of a mobile broadband contract? Magic?
Are you serious about the touchscreen comment? There are several netbooks with touchscreen. Jesus, get with the times!
Improved UI....you do know that there are a handful of units which offer linux quick-boot options, right? e.g. Sony Vaio P.
