Windows Steven Sinofsky, who oversees Windows 7 development, has really committed to keeping us in the loop on the new Engineering Windows 7 blog. In today's post, "Measuring the Scale of a Release," he discusses whether or not Windows 7 will be a "major" or "minor" release. It's a pretty good piece that really makes some good points. Read on for our perspective.

Not scared to switch

I'm currently a Windows user and I'm not scared to switch to a Mac I'm just not willing to pay such a premium for their hardware. I would gladly run Mac OS X if I could but I'm not going to pay for hardware that I don't particularly like (for the price) to do it. Apple laptops are about right price/performance-wise after a significant refresh but normally they carry a premium, especially on RAM.

After I move this October I'm planning to completely reformat my computer and I will probably have a Windows XP SP3 partition and some kind of Linux Partition. Can all Linux distros read/write to NTFS now? It's been a few years since I had time to play with Linux at university. Also does anyone know any good back up solutions for Windows XP?
