  1. Review - Trillian

    0.70 (Dec 6, 2001)

    Great work...as if the previous version wasn't good enough, we get hit with another gem :D. Please...keep it up.

  2. Review - ICQ

    2000a Alpha v4.25 Build #3120 (Mar 30, 2000)

    Dsnake, give'em a break...its not like they make (and therefore have full access to the source/backdoors/shortcuts/etc/etc/etc of) the os. Unable to display Java, JS, DHTML?...What? Those worked impeccably since versons 4.x. Can't argure about the memory (mis)usage, though--in spite of its ability to view Java, don't try it on a

  3. Comment - Is Your Computer Ready for XP?

    Do you actually believe that nonsense? Why should we be expected to dish out a hundred bucks a year to merely have ability to use (by in turn buying) newly released software? I'm not saying that there is no need for changes to, say Win95's support for various things, but these changes 'should' require no more than a simple patch (or series of patches). Get a grip...this is just the OS...contrary to popular belief, an OS is (or should be) nothing more than an intermediary between you, the software you put on it, and your physical machine. If you ask me, YOU are the one missing out...on the point. This is not anti-MS (I think their software's great) but it just seems that they've created an ISP style per year fee for the normal use of a computer--'$100/year upgrades' to the shell, plus hundreds of dollar upgrades to hardware. You even admit XP's just an NT based OS.

    Where's the balance control? Don't tell me you'll have to put the eq in the shade to have access to it.

  5. Comment - Microsoft Ruling Announced

    2000a Alpha v4.25 Build #3120 (Apr 4, 2000 - 7:22 AM)

    Making a program work faster is not an improvement worthy of an $x-hundred upgrade. Please mention some more meaningful improvements.

  6. Comment - Apple to Release OS for x86-based Systems?

    2000a Alpha v4.25 Build #3120 (Mar 31, 2000 - 7:29 AM)

    Reading IS fundamental...
    When I eluded to the maintainance of the os, I meant just that (since when do you have to (or have the ability to) tinker with the MacOS). Of course with some tinkering you can make the Windows operating system (which I'm using) work for you, but when deadlines exist, time is of the essence, and productivity is key. Why would you even guess that that would be a shot at MS (customization=good, but 'time wasted' = 'no income').

    ...Because let's face it...comparing Apple hardware to that for PC's is like comparing Apples to slightly rotted apples ;)
