Windows According to Microsoft beat writer Mary Jo Foley, word is that "Windows 7's mail, photo-management and movie-maker subsystems applets are all being replaced by optionally installable Windows Live equivalents." To many, replacing subsystems with services is a good thing. But what will the self-professed geeks think? Cnet seems to think that "Windows 7 must appeal to geeks--or else!"

Subsystems?

NT (3.51 - 6 and beyond) has got, to my knowledge, just three subsystems:
- Win32
- OS/2 1.x
- POSIX (some really ancient version)

Is someone trying to tell me Microsoft added a *moviemaker* and other crap as subsystems, that they now (if so, rightfully!) are to remove?! (though making such obvious *apps* into services seems like a bonehead idea - actually, I'd call it idiotic).
