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.

$2000? Try $1099 for a MacBook.


I'm sorry, it's still too much. For $1099 I can get the "I'm sorry I can't afford the COOL Mac, please don't look down on me" basic Mac laptop. For $500-$600 I can get a similarly spec'd PC. As PsyStar has shown us, it is a very closed game Apple is running, where people pay twice the money for the "coolness" factor. That is why it is imperative to Apple that the OS never be available on other hardware. They are nice products, but I can't do my computer shopping at Tiffany's. Some people can. But as Jerry would say, "Not That There's Anything Wrong with That".
