22.214.171.1240 RC (Jul 16, 2010)
Being very fast and simple I use it as default browser.
I hope the developers use their knowledge and apply to it the good things of the old Maxthon 1.6, in special:
- A perfect control of ads reflected into the down left corner counter.
- SmartUrl should never change the shape in which the webpage is shown. I've had to delete the SmartUrl folder from the user (Windows 7 64 bits) to recover the normal shape of some web pages.
- The mail option means nothing for users, not allowing you the use of hotmail, yahoo or any other everyday used mail provider.
Let's hope the definitive version deserves the confidence that we users had towards the 1.6 version. IMHO it works much better than version 2.
9.1.1 (Apr 28, 2010)
I keep using Winamp, first under XP and now under Windows 7 64 bits. It works perfect.
9.61 Build 10463 Final (Oct 20, 2008)
As all precedent versions, simply the fastest and the best browser.
Thank you for allowing us doublebooters to use it both under XP and Windows 98 SE.
5.1 RC (Oct 6, 2008)
Excellent, as all previous versions.
Working under Windows 98 SE (double boot) it does not print, maybe a bug.

Very good. Not for all OS: on double boot doesn't work under 9x.

I've seen it in many machines, but it has been intentionally withdrawn in the HP DV6 Pavilion with preinstalled Home Premium Windows 7.
No possibility of IDE emulation at all. You can only install into this laptop any 32-64 version of Windows 7, AFAIK.
Not even XP or 2000.

I wonder how IT Guy reached to install Ubuntu into a preinstalled HP DV6 Pavilion. I've tried many times to do it into the same machine using diverse different 32 and 62 Linux versions but the portable never allowed the install disk to recognize the SATA drive, nor Hewlett Packard gave me any solution for it at all.
I'm also a computer proffesional since 1981.
Could anyone explain it to me?

Even when I think Windows 7 is the best OS until now, if you have a preinstalled Windows 7 64 bits OS on a HP machine it is totally impossible to install anything but Windows 7, not even changing the SATA drive because of firmware or motherboard problems created by the hardware provider.
IMO the buyer should be informed of this, as it happens in the case of Mac buyers, to give him the opportunity of building his own machine instead if he needs to doubleboot or substitute the preloaded OS for any reason.

Even when Windows 7 is an excellent OS, if you own a preinstalled Windows 64 in your computer, have you ever tried to install into it any other OS?. Not even Windows XP 64 bits, nor any existing version of Linux, have drivers for your SATA HD, not even if you change it or install a second older HD: it seems that the preinstalled hardware has been built just to kill any other OS option.

Most of the Windows 7 sxs folder subfolders are drivers for all languages in the world and for each and every existing device, but most of us use only only one language, a motherboard and some external devices.
The motherboard drivers at preinstalled computers are into the recovery drive and not into the sxs folder, and if you buy a motherboard instead they are supplied to you by the dealer.
Concerning the external devices, we are in 2010 and there's no need to use any more procedures belonging to the past. Keeping them always updated into an external server and using cloud computing is much better by far than having permanently into your machine more than 10 GB of unused and not updated drivers. You only need an internet access to download the needed one.
BTW, it's thanks to Microsoft Update that half of my external devices are properly working now.
