Windows Even though the EULA accompanying the beta build of Windows 7 prohibits the publication of benchmark results (good luck enforcing that one, Redmond), everybody and their dog will still compare the Windows 7 beta to Vista and Windows XP. Adrian Kingsley-Hughes is one of those benchmarking the beta, and according to his results, the Windows 7 beta beats both Vista and XP in just about every scenario.

Man centos_user, you don't make any sense.
1. Suggesting that coal power is good is absurd. So you say that consuming a limited resource, releasing greenhouse gasses, and causing acid rain is somehow good?
2. Alternatives to coal power are not really that expensive. Nuclear and hydropower are almost the same price and are much better for the environment. Even those hyped-up "green" sources of energy that those Greenpeace lobbyists are pushing are coming down in price.
3. In the grand scale of things, computers use very little power. In cold places (like Canada), one can even argue that computers are 100% efficient because the power that computers use is simply turned into heat, reducing our heating bills.
4. When did Obama tell you to "run the country off of a windmill, walk to work and eat by candle light"?

And then you go on to claim that Obama's a communist. Come on, how absurd can you get? You think that pure capitalism will solve our problems? Well how did we get into the hole we're in right now? How did the "laissez-faire" strategy work in the Depression?

Please stop trolling centos_user and only say something if you know what you're talking about.

Haha, before I'd take anybody seriously who claims Obama is a communist, I'd suggest Barack take his head out of Wall Street's ass first. This guy is a first class kleptocrat, just look at the appointments for economic affairs, Summers, Geithner, folks like that. Kleptocrats pur sang.

it's the same old crony capitalism: privatized profits and socialized risks. It's the same idea behind freddie mac, which is what tanked the economy in the first place.
