1.0e (Jun 14, 2012)
The "this little tennis game rocks" reviewer below only ever wrote this glowing review. Highly suspicious, particularly since the game actually sucks: you can get much better value for your $25.
10.5.2 (Dec 14, 2011)
I once gave away my wife iPod Shuffle and bought her another MP3 player just for the sake of not needing this anymore and being able to eradicate it from my computers. IIRC I listed my gripes in another review some time ago.
1.42.544 (Dec 13, 2011)
Just tried it, v1.42. Copied an executable on a drive, deleted it (shift+delete), run Recuva, select *.exe as filter, scan took 10 seconds, found the file I just deleted, highlights it with a green icon (it found really old files as well, but highlighted them red as I'd expect), click on it, recover to my C drive, I'm told the file is recovered successfully, run the exe from the C drive and it works.
So works as advertised, nice easy interface, quick scan, and reliable colouring of the recoverable files.
I can't think of any reason to deduce any points, so it gets a 5.
10.0 Alpha 1 (Nightly Build) (Oct 3, 2011)
I'm not normally the kind to complain about something as intangible as version number, but this is becoming ridiculous.
I just upgraded to 7. Now, there's 8 beta available, fair enough. 9 alpha as well? Oh, hum, okay, I'll just ignore it as usual. What, there's 10 alpha as well?
Way to confuse the consumer.
Also the reason I prefer Firefox over Chrome is the abundance of addons, but the runaway version number train doesn't give a chance to keep their compatibility tag up to date, and if you patch them manually, it's at your own risk.
To conclude: ridiculous. If the sole purpose is to overtake Chrome in version number, why bother with standard increments: just call the next one v69 and give addons developers a break.
7.0.1 (Oct 3, 2011)
No major complaints from me except that the escalating version numbers have been deprecating perfectly fine addons real quick, argh. I used to crank up "maxversion" a notch in "install.rdf", but still annoying, so I took a chance and set them to "99.*" and I'll see how it goes in the next few years!
Also, as Blaxima rightfully pointed out, it can leave some leftovers behind, especially if an error log is created.
Otherwise, works fine: not worse then Opera/IE/Chrome, and the addons make it a more flexible choice for me. I downloaded Chrome Portable again but didn't get a chance to give it another go yet.

Miniaturised hardware costs more for identical technical specifications, which is not quite the case. According to your argument, Pocket PCs should cost well over the eeePC, despite lower processing power and memory (albeit small LCDs surely cost less).
Even if you are (were?) correct, you could have done so equally well without your holier-than-thou attitude.

For me, the keyword is "slider". If it is, isn't the screen highly vulnerable?
I'd also like some quantification of "ultra-low-cost", because for example I don't see the Asus eeePC as cheap for what it is.
Still, can't wait to see Atom based PCs released, it can only be good news for batteries :) And from what I've read, its performance is superior to the Via C7.

"9down is about the only Chinese website that isn't X rated or a hard sell for everything under the sun"
I get more spams and popups from USA than from China. If you were correct, that wouldn't be the case.

If they become as cheap and fast as mechanical HDDs, I'll jump on them like hot cakes. After all, they'd be quiet, consume less... except that "Apparently MLC NAND flash wears out, after roughly about 10,000 rewrites". Hmmm, all better, but less durable :(

"it installs Ubuntu onto a disk image that emulates a hard drive."
I'm not sure I understand the advantage over running Linux in, say, VirtualBox.
Can we share files between Windows and Linux? E.g. if I write/save a Python script in Windows, can I access and run it directly in Ubuntu?
