Is Windows Easy Transfer in Windows 7 a bit difficult?

In my capacity as man with finger in more than one editorial pie (or freelance journalist I suppose), I have been getting some feedback from Windows 7 users that the data movement wizard Windows Easy Transfer is, when using Windows 7, actually sometimes a little difficult.This tool, which I understand has been around since Vista if not before, is said to allow the user to transfer personal files, e-mail, data, files, media and settings from an old computer to a new one.

Open letter to Microsoft - Can we have a Windows 7 beta 2 please?

An Open Letter to Microsoft ... I've been running Windows 7 beta 1 for now eight weeks and I've put this beta thorough a serious workout. I've done my bit and tested the OS and submitted feedback, like I'm supposed to. I've also had, through unofficial channels, builds that have come after the official beta 1 build 7000 code, and I've tested those too. Things look like they are coming quite well. But before we jump to a Release Candidate and start getting caught up in "RTM fever" I'd like to see a beta 2 of Windows 7 please.

Novell: Free SLES while the fire is hot

My "Free Enterprise OSes" post got a lot of attention and a lot of positive feedback, particularly from those who are now actually considering using some of these in order to reduce license costs.Still, while I am glad people are now considering these OSes as real enterprise computing solutions, a nagging feeling remains along the lines of the Cookie Monster's famous platinum hit,  "One of these things is not like the other.

Making the case for 64-bit Windows Vista

Over the past few days my inbox has been bursting at the seams from all the feedback I received from the Vista SP1 vs. XP SP2 benchmarking that I carried out. I'll tell you it's at times like this that I'm glad that Gmail offers me over 6GB of space, and effectively sorts out the ham from the spam. One popular question that you seem to have is why have I decided to embrace Vista despite the flaws, faults and shortcomings. In this post I hope to explain why.

Copyright, piracy and stealing

My post yesterday about copyright laws and piracy generated a lot of very interesting feedback, both in the TalkBack section and via email. One thing that struck me from the feedback was how opinion is divided on whether infringing copyright is stealing, and if it is stealing, how far do you have to cross the line to be considered a criminal?

Goodbye MacBook Pro Experience, hello Linux Experience!

My MacBook Pro Experience series of posts that I've run over the past six weeks or so have, in my mind been a total success. One of the things that made it a success in my mind is the amount of feedback I have received. Buried within that feedback were numerous requests that I do the same thing, but this time for Linux. Sounds like a good idea to me, so let's get the ball rolling!
