Archives For Beta

I remember Dean Hachamovitch (Head if Internet Explorer) and I discussing IE7/8 internal builds in his office back in 2007.  I was complaining it wasn’t fast enough, still didn’t have a download manager and we seemed to take too long to release.  He noted Win7 would create a deep keel for IE to sail again, and always welcomed my feedback.

Well Dean, the wait was worth it.  Hats off to you and the team.

If only for the time you’ll save tagging pictures in your photo library, Windows Live Essentials is a welcome update.  Even my wife has started using Windows Movie Maker for clips of the kids.
