Windows The past few weeks or so, there's been a lot of interest in a supposed battery status report bug in Windows 7. After installing Windows 7, some users reported seeing "consider replacing your battery"-warnings in systems that appeared to be operating just fine on Windows XP or Vista. After extensive research, Steven Sinofsky has now explained on the Engineering 7 blog that the fault is not with Windows 7 - it really, really is your battery.

My battery needs to last long enough to get me from one outlet to another. My laptop is plugged in as often as possible.

PS: "the battery was already in need of replacement, but XP nor Vista had the ability to report that to you." Shouldn't that be "neither XP nor Vista"? http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/nor#Conjunction

Yes. I've PMd Thom with a pointer to that effect before, but he seems quite content to ignore it. I figured since his English is damn near perfect, he'd be happy to hear about and correct one of his few remaining problems ;)
