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"?

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 ;)
