OK, we get it. Fatbas**** doesn't like mIRC (how many reviews does he have to write??)
Very nice IRC client. Very flexible and has some nice scripting features. Also very low resource utilization and has options for beginners and advanced users. You really can't beat mIRC. It's one of the originals and still the best.

Great app. From a feature perspective it's not quite Photoshop (but close), but from a pricing perspective (free) it beats the crap out of photoshop!
Are you serious? Who the f uses 2000 anymore? You make it sound like they stopped supporting 2000 "just because". I'm sure there's a technical limitation of some sort.
3.0.1 Beta (Jun 15, 2007)
@zridling I couldn't have said it better myself :).
Still, I'm glad they're making a push to Windows with this particular product. Mostly as a development tool, I couldn't imagine ever giving up Firefox (or IE) for something like this...

I have to agree with the other reviews... interesting tool. Definitely handy, nothing too extreme..

The .net framework is one of the greatest development frameworks i've worked with. Some of the people reviewing this are just ignorant, they're the same people who hate Microsoft simply because they're Microsoft. From a development stand-point you can't get any better... it's easy, you can write powerful robust applications in a fraction of the time you would with C++, and deploy them to a network of thousands of people with the click of a mouse. Although I'm not too stoked on how Microsoft is calling this .NET 3.0 (when in reality it should probably be an extension to 2.0), it will provide some great features for XP and Vista (mainly UI). Of course every language has it's time and place...
constust, why don't you try it before talking smack...

Agreed, products like this must be bullet proof. People will be more upset by a broken product that is released early than one that works released a little late. SQL server has always been one of Microsofts most solid applications, they need to keep it that way.

Bad analogy :). There's a lot of legacy web sites out there that need to render on any somewhat modern browser. There's not much legacy hardware that will run on Vista. Microsoft is really trying not to break the web with this release, and yet add all the standards compliance that people have been begging for for years. This isn't easy. With this approach, there's nothing preventing people from coming together and "designing the right way". They just need to include this meta tag that every other browser will ignore. The only negative side effect would be your web files being like 50 bytes larger, there's probably more white-space on a given site than this meta tag will take up.
I think they'll probably introduce this feature then a few versions (years) from now scrap it once the majority of web sites have been updated, in which case the meta tag will just be ignored by all browsers. I think this is a really good temporary approach as long as they are thinking of the future.

Properly support it? I think they failed to properly market it. Fortunately they're now playing commercials for the 80gb model. I have a 30gb one also and I love it, it's still being supported even with the 80gb model out. They released the same version of the 80gb firmware for the 30gb models so it has all the same features, only smaller HD and a larger design. Way better than any ipod I've played with...

will they have an adsense-like service, too?

Wow big surprise. Winamp was once a great audio player, but that was a long time ago...
