Can't even handle the basics. Font smoothing - although font smudging would be more appropriate description - is abysmal.
This is clearly an Apple/Safari issue. Google Chrome has the same rendering engine (Web Kit) and it displays fonts correctly. Safari renders fonts as though they were written with a big fat magic marker. Horrible.
I think this is a deliberate strategy by Apple to make Windows look bad. "Hey, Windows can't even make type look good - you should switch to the Mac." And that's shameful - though consistent with the Steve Jobs ethos.

Great software. Much better than Windows built in file copier.
The CRC, error detecting, function is fantastic. It detected a few errors when uploading/backing up on to Jungle Disk. Now I know my backed up data isn't corrupted.

The iPhone may be in it's own category. There's not much one can do to improve on its design. It's essentially just a screen.
The functionality and future design changes can occur via new software/firmware. The design of the hardware comes in a distant second to what can be done via new code. I guess in this case the iPhone is more like a desktop computer than a laptop or mobile phone.

What do you make of the multitasking limitation? New netbooks are likely going to be at least dual core so a 3 application multitasking limitation seems like more PR trouble for MS than it is worth in trying to get OEM's and consumers to buy a more expensive Windows 7 version.
I wish MS wouldn't put arbitrary limits on Windows 7. I can understand not including functionality (Bitlocker etc.) but limitations seem draconian.

Uh, no. That's the caffeinated Steve Jobs Kool-Aid you've obviously had.
You might try being concise with your Apple fan-boy rantings.

Yeah, you lost me there. The kool-aid must have had a lot of caffeine in it. Blah blah blah.

PC Mag is irrelevant. And one review with lots of caveats. Big deal.
