[Update 26-Oct: Now that Windows 7 has been officially released, I have answers to some specific questions about what you can and can't do with upgrade media. For details, see Finally, some answers to Windows 7 upgrade questions .] Almost exactly two years ago, I wrote about “Microsoft’s licensing mess.” Judging by my mailbag, nothing has changed in the meantime. Microsoft has done an exceptional job of designing Windows 7, but a terrible job of communicating how it will be sold. As Microsoft dribbles out details of the Windows 7 release schedule and product lineup, including pricing and upgrade offers, I’ve been deluged ...

That those products are missing is not by fiat, but simply because no one has added them. IBM sometimes used the same number for a system and for the principal component of that system. For example, the IBM 604 Calculating Unit is a component of the IBM 604 Calculating Punch.

Office Home and Student accounts for 85% of US Office retail share ...
Which Microsoft Office version is most popular at US retail stores -- brick and mortar or online? Office Home and Student 2007, which inherited the position from XP and 2003 versions of Office Student and Teacher. Home and Student accounts for "85 percent of Office sales, either Mac or PC," said Stephen Baker, NPD's vice president of industry analysis. I asked Baker for the percentage because it's that time of year when students are preparing to go back to school and Microsoft and retailers practically give away Office Home and Student. Last week, I spotted the software, which normally sells for $149.95, at ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

ICKLER: Battles Back For 13th At Iowa Speedway
Brian Ickler may not have had the racetruck to beat in Sunday's Lucas Oil 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton. But he had arguably the next-best through most of the first half of the race.

Dave's Guide to Buying a Home Computer
Whether you intend to write papers for class, surf the World Wide Web, or just play computer games, you need to have an idea of what the minimum requirements the computer needs to have. If all you intend to do is just write letters using a DOS based word processing program, a 386 or 486 system with a couple megabytes of memory is more than adequate. If you want to use a Windows version of some word processing program, then your requirements go up a bit, particularly on the amount of RAM memory and hard disk space. If you want to be able to surf the Web and play some of the multimedia on-line virtual reality games, then you ...
Are there any differences between regular retail Vista and Vista ...
Aside from lacking a paper manual and coming in a pretty box, the OEM version will only work on the first motherboard it is installed on. If you switch out any piece of your computer (like cpu or RAM) OEM will run fine, but if you try to replace the motherboard your OEM copy won't work anymore. Also, OEMs either come as 32 bit versions or 64 bit versions whereas the retails let you install either.

What's OEM software? Is it safe to buy? (Comments)
It may not be legal for a person to sell it, but it's perfectly legal to buy the software from a retailer if you meet the requirements of the EULA. You can legally and easily buy OEM copies of Windows from stores like Newegg or ZipZoomFly if you are also buying parts for a new computer. And no manufacturer gives you the Windows disk anymore; often, if you get disks at all, it's an image that you have to restore. Most likely it's a partition on your hard drive with the same image. Making blanket statements that buying OEM software is illegal is misleading, if not false. It's perfectly safe to buy OEM software ...
