It lets you read your books, but that's about it. They have the ability to make a nice Windows client but they won't because it would lower Kindle sales. I have "Kindle for PC" on my dual touch Win7 tablet. Oh the possibilities! Maybe one day Amazon will wake up. If they had a nice Windows client then they would sell more books.
3.5.5 (Apr 26, 2010)
I am a pro photo and this is not a Photoshop replacement for me. However, this tool is great for people who don't need a full-blown photoshop. If you use Photoshop Elements, then you should consider this tool. Paint.net is MUCH easier to use than the GIMP.
4.4 Beta 2 (4.3.85) (Dec 21, 2009)
I like this. I do think it is time for a new UI font. KDE usually follows windows closely so we may see a new font soon (Windows now uses Segoe UI).
I like the fact that quick launch is still on the task bar. MS removed theirs in Win 7. The KDE quick launch looks crowded though.
All the cool effects take the right hardward. You don't get good effects in a virtual instance.
3.2.0 RC1 (Dec 18, 2009)
I followed OO for years even before Sun owned it. I love the concept but when compared to MS Office, it's hard to compete. The UI seems stuck in the 1990s. At least on Windows -- I haven't tried the Linux version in a year or so. On Windows, Office sets the standard and the ribbon has left OO furter behind.
1.3.9 Beta (Sep 1, 2009)
A little complex for new users. The UI seems "old" but I have had no problems getting any of the betas to work in Win 7. The vocal remover feature is hit and miss.
1.3.9 Beta (Aug 19, 2011 - 10:21 AM)
I've got one and I like it as well (maybe a little more so) than my ipad 1. The issue is the lack of quality apps. There are a plethora of WebOs apps, but most of them are for the phone form factor. I am shocked by this announcment. Shocked.
1.3.9 Beta (Aug 18, 2011 - 5:58 PM)
Like everything else in a AD, this can be controlled via GPO.
1.3.9 Beta (Aug 18, 2011 - 5:57 PM)
1. Microsoft actually had plans (see leaked PPT) for a Windows App Store at least one year ahead of the OSX App Store
2. All cloud vendors have had downtime (remember the HUGE Amazon outage? Google docs go down FREQUENTLY for short periods.) If I had to guess, I would say even with the 265 outage yesterday, Microsoft is still within their published SLA. Of course, that assumes, no other outages will occur.
1.3.9 Beta (Aug 18, 2011 - 5:54 PM)
Microsoft toyed with the idea of an app store for Windows Mobile when it was called PocketPC 2002. Maybe they shot it down because at the time they were getting beat up by the DoJ for simply including a browser and/or Media Player in their OS. The thought of supplying an operating system, then supplying a channel to buy apps for that OS probably wasn't well received. Thus, alternative app stores like Handango started appearing to fill the void.

They see more value in letting G00gle/Apple/Microsoft bid for the patents. Isn't that why HP bought Palm in the first place?
