  1. Review - Process Hacker (Apr 24, 2009)

    Whats the point in this tool when Process Explorer (sysinternals) does a better job?

  2. Review - Sysinternals Suite

    Build 08/08/08 (Aug 11, 2008)

    Sysinternal was so good that Windows bought it around a year or so ago. Of COURSE its a suite of utilities much like PSS Tools. Its a bunch of small applets that can be used for all manner of administrative functions from changing SID`s to zooming in on the Windows GUI. Its an EXCELLENT suite of tools. If it wasnt so good MS wouldnt have bought it.

    Now because there ALL individuals tools why on earth would it require an executable when all the tools are either .exe`s for there designated function or command line based. What do you require a unified interface for when there all seperate tools which again have there OWN function. Thats like complaining that the ping command has no GUI and cant be integrated with the ipconfig command. Its as semantic as the day is long a throughly worthless argument purely because the poster isnt capable of understanding the administrative funtion that they provide. Theres no point in complaining that the scapel doesnt work when your not a surgeon.

    Again there is NO need for any bunch of tools to communicate with each other. If there was a need they would NOT be seperate tools.

  3. Comment - Microsoft, don't give up on Steve Ballmer just yet

    Bill Gates wasnt stupid. He stepped down at a time whereby the market and consumer has matured drammatically. Most of the MS products are reaching the absolute limits of their capabilities. If MS wants to make the headway that Apple made with the iPhone they need to start listening to their consumers. Windows 7 was a great start.

  4. Comment - Data encryption tool maker: Antivirus has become ineffective

    More sensationlist journalism. AV's are going nowhere. If anyone thinks there ineffective they need their head tested. Every single OS has vulnerabilites. Why? Because there man made. As long as there is a human element any system can be exploited. Encryption though a worthy foe in battling against malicious exploits, also would present unending amount of complexity for the average home user. Encryption in addition isnt bullet proof either. Depending on the type of Encryption there are many tools in the public domain that can reverse engineer varying types of Encryption hashes ciphers etc.

  5. Comment - Microsoft Office is obsolete, or soon will be

    Build 08/08/08 (Jan 24, 2010 - 2:44 PM)

    Il never understand the blind hatred MS gets. Yes there are many alternatives to Office. Star Office Open Office Google Apps etc. But the only one that is big in the enterprise naturally is MS office. Frankly this article is just poor journalism with huge smatterings of inane subjectivity. MS office is going nowhere that much is a fact. If the author truly believes OWA in its current incarnation on Exchange2 003 or 2007 ( we dont go into 2010 yet.. ) is the answer as an email client then he really needs to brush up on his IT literacy.

  6. Comment - Microsoft: Europe customers must wait to upgrade Vista to Windows 7

    The EU havent got a clue what there doing. Iv never heard of anything so stupid in all my life. Seeing as Firefox practically own the browser space on most Linux distro's the EU might want to round them up to.

    O yes Apple are so innovative. So much so they take something thats Open Source make it proprietary and then its legions of fans and there 10% market share gloat like hypnotised sheep at how cutting edge their product is? Its nothing more than a Unix hack. And just incase you didnt realise MS own 20% of Apple. Jobs isnt stupid. He knows he hasnt reinvented the wheel hence the plethora of law suits Apple are always fighting and why he has resorted to working with MS numerous times. If you can beat em join em.
