Poole demonstrated how “Corona” dramatically improves Internet streaming by introducing Fast Stream, which gives an instant-on, always-on experience, bringing home-theater-like audio and video quality to broadband PC users. Far surpassing the capabilities of any other similar technology, “Corona” is poised to lead the third generation of streaming on the Web, which Poole defined to include broadcast-quality experiences for end users and enhanced profitability for the entire digital media ecosystem.

they have worked so hard to make a nice product…..the only thing I never likes about their stuff is the streaming…..for some reason quicktime has done it right and real just can not do it….even on my cable modem the streams need to rebuffer.
windows media player is no competition to RealOne, but I fear that no one will pay a subscription just to try it out, and even then 9.95 is pretty steep I think when you consider the alternatives that are available from Apple and MS…..even though they are crapy in comparison, good enough is what does it, especialy is the good enough is free.
I have to say Windows Update is an excellent tool.
And for those running Linux, and not running Debian…Change now!!
Nothing could be easier than
Its so simple, its a joke.
I have to agree, windows update and Apt-get are the best of the breed when it comes to update tools.
why can no linux distrobution clone windows update?
OS X has a nice updater also……
hmmmm wait a second!!!!
the updaters that suck…..they all us RPM!!!!!
I guess that says a lot doesn’t it.
Youre right about RPM, its nothing in comparison with DEB
Only a recent convert, and there is nothing like it for ease of use.
