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!"

They should add "app compatibility" to that list of optional services. That feature has become less and less helpful over time, to the point where it's almost useless in Vista, and the need for it has almost been obviated by VirtualPC.
