  2. Review - Disk Space Clean Clear

    8.00 (Jun 22, 2007)

    I wish I could give this crap a ZERO

  3. Review - yBook

    1.4.83 (Apr 5, 2007)

    They might as well make it look nice... In programs like this, the interface is everything...

    No PDF support? Wow I'm impressed

  4. Review - Apple Boot Camp for Mac OS X

    1.2 Beta (Mar 30, 2007)

    Engineering students at my university are required to have Windows OS on their system, thanks to this I can get a Mac and be able to do my work on it!!

  5. Review - Aston

    1.9.3.1 Xmas edition (Dec 29, 2006)

    Oh my gosh what a horribly written piece of crap!! I installed it and it "logged off" to apply settings, so far so good, but when I logged in again, the explorer shell was gone! Explorer crashed, and there I was with no explorer shell... Cool huh? (I think this is why they call it the Xmas edition)

    It might be a good program, and I might want to blame this whole thing on the OS (XP SP2) instead of the guys who wrote "Aston"... But all in all, I don't advise you to use this...

  6. Comment - Microsoft Genuine Software Initiative Enters 2nd Year

    Linux
    --
    Dell sells most of its servers preloaded with Linux. It will start selling personal computers preloaded with Linux too, in order to give open source software a boost. Most D-link routers are Linux based, some cell phones use Linux based programming. That is what I call a serious dent. It's obvious Linux doesn't interfere with personal operating system sales, but it absolutely interferes with larger-scale matters like the ones mentioned above.

    Mac OS X
    --
    Now Apple obviously had the GUI before Microsoft and it's quite clear that Vista's GUI is a total ripoff let alone its features.
    Gadgets > Widgets
    Search (Start Menu) > Apple Spotlight
    Thumbnail and picture features > iPhoto
    Windows Aero > Apple's Aqua
    The list goes on

    Windows
    --
    As read on this website, a simple animated mouse cursor exploit can cause Vista to give up the last breath. That's quite embarrassing. The only reason Windows is so popular, I believe, is because it's an open ground for piracy and for people to get free goodies. Cracks, patches and all that are mostly made for Windows programs.

    Finally, I think Mac OS X is for the business oriented person that has no time for flaws and for silly exploits, Linux for the developer who likes being in a world of his own. Normal users might see Linux as a "mess of programming code" while programmers see it as a crystal clear utopia. And Windows, well, it's mostly for people who don't mind experiencing constant problems that come and go with no obvious cause. An operating system with a core code dating back from Windows 95 (which was good). Windows generates this feeling that everything might or might not work. Its unstable nature annoys even the most aware computer users.

  7. Comment - McAfee Joins Anti-Microsoft Security Chorus

    1.9.3.1 Xmas edition (Oct 2, 2006 - 2:36 PM)

    Stupid morons... I swear Vista is gonna be a very steep drop for Microsoft... Especially that Macs are now quite inexpensive (MacBook starts at 999$ and is pretty good compared to PC laptops for the same price) and that more software is becoming compatible with Macs...
    More people will come closer to the light and hopefully make the switch

  8. Comment - Microsoft: Vista Apps Must be 'Cool'

    1.9.3.1 Xmas edition (Sep 20, 2006 - 3:56 AM)

    Stupid Microsoft... I'm getting a MacBook Pro! I advise you to make the switch too...

  9. Comment - Pioneer Delays Blu-ray Player

    1.9.3.1 Xmas edition (Jun 7, 2006 - 9:09 AM)

    A 50 GB disc as a movie STANDARD to replace the normal DVD? I don't guess so, at least not yet. It sure is a dangerous gamble since the dual layer DVDs of today support HD video perfetly well. So I think the 5x boost to the capacity is NOT NEEDED by video production companies yet. What are they supposed to fit in there? Sounds like a good data storage idea. But not a video standard for at least a few years to come
