So wait dudeboyz, you will rate this tool properly based on its functionality and usability but not others? Although you have some inane obsession with DOT NET with no explanation or justification as to why and you continue to use it as a rating criteria. Wow, you really are looking to troll.
3.5.1 (Dec 13, 2009)
So wait, you come to a program named "Paint.NET" just to rate it down because it uses .net? Again, all of your reviews seem to have jack to do with the application and instead focus on stuff that has little impact on the usability of the application. Stop being a troll Dudeboyz and rate the application for usability and not some oddball thing like using dot net when ".NET" is in the program title!
On that note, Paint.NET is not designed to be a Gimp/Adobe PS replacement but a paintbrush replacement for windows. So comparing it to such tools is laughable and like comparing apples to seaweed. 5/5
7.0.320 (Dec 13, 2009)
So wait...are betanews ratings intended to rate the size of the application and not the functionality now? Dudeboyz, stop being a troll and rate how the application acts. When features are added, size often goes up. Not everyone is worried about operating things on their system containing 256MB of ram. There is no use having 4GB of ram if you are just leaving it sitting there.

Anomoly: Apparently the author has released a portable version of Unlocker as well, it is available as a download on the main Unlocker webpage. So there is no excuse for using the mediocre Fileassassin.
Lusono: Fileassassin does not find half the handles that Unlocker finds on my machine on the C drive. Can you give us a real example where Unlocker fails and FA succeeds?

.1434 has been pretty solid for me. This .1436 version just locks up all the time, still playing but doesn't accept mouse or keyboard input and Windows says it is not responding. Is .1436 a release or beta? has to loose 2 stars for this anyway.

Why do you support Microsoft? Do they pay you to support them ?

Most netbooks sold now are full computers, and priced like one ($300+, the same price as a cheap 15"). When netbooks were created, they were Linux only and meant to be cheaper than a normal computer. There is an unmet demand for a web-based, Linux, non-intel, actually cheap netbook ($100 or $150 is the magic price price point). Something cheap enough to take to the beach, have one in the kitchen, buy for a child, etc. 95% of computer use is for Word and online apps. With a good word processor, a cheap netbook will be an excellent second computer, not a laptop replacement the way that current ones have drifted into being.

UAC as implemented in W7 is useless to a power user. I put up with it for a few weeks and then modified the account settings not to bother me anymore with absurd OK prompts.
It needs a SECURE, ENCRYPTED white list. I find it amazing that MS hasn't done this yet.

Oh come on, the Home button and attached Bookmarks Bar have existed since the very first release (toggleable in the Options and in the Tools menu (or by Ctrl+B), respectively). Sheesh.
But given the Home button complaint, I'm surprised you didn't bring up the Stop button too, or lack thereof. (For the record, it's on the opposite side of the screen from Reload, and only appears when loading. Sucks.)

Scott, this is obviously a troll article. How much programming have you done? Patches change code so obviously it will not work the way it originally did. Windows is the most secure operating system because it does patch the holes quickly, and yes that comes with some performance loss, until a new patch is released that can adjust the code to make it faster again. Your article seems to think that microseconds really do matter to everyone, but if they did our clocks would tell microseconds and not seconds. I do not know your test machines because I have almost stopped reading here because of posts like this, but on my machine Windows 7 is faster than Vista and XP, and continues to be with each patch. It even boots faster than the Linux distro I have dual booting. So please, just give us the facts and not your opinion. You are BetaNEWS, not BetaHEREISWHATITHINK, after all.
