Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Personally, I'm going to find things very interesting when VII actually hits the streets. Will the masses jump? Are the masses just as tired of dancing the Redmond Slide like most of us
Unfortunately for Microsoft shit tends to stick, and the shit that accompanied Vista was very sticky indeed.
If the same people who avoided Vista in round one get it into their head that Windows 7 is Vista part deux, then it won't matter how much better/faster/prettier/resource-friendly (delete as applicable) it is. They'll continue to remain apathetic and stay away.
I suppose its better the iWaste
But who's going to pay the $50 required to salvage the battery from the iWaste?
Wow. Only 66 employees? I wonder how many are actually working on products they sell?
I expect most, if not all, of the employees that are capable of finding alternative jobs will be long gone. The remaining 66 are either in golden-handcuffs or are drooling morons.

Since earlier this year we have been waiting for AMD to release documentation and/or code on the ATI R600 series concerning 3D acceleration so that the open-source Linux drivers can begin to support the newer ATI graphics processors. It has taken longer than expected for AMD to complete and release this information, but it's now available. AMD has released the fundamental Linux code needed to begin fostering the development of an open-source R600 3D driver. Furthermore, this code also concerns the latest R700 series of graphics processors! The microcode for the newest GPUs has also been released.
