Word is that MS will finally follow all standards in IE 8, that cannot be bad thing. Consumers really pushed Microsoft hard with non accepting everything Microsoft throws at them. I can only say keep up the good work and maybe soon Microsoft will start listening their consumers.

I personally like and use Mozilla Firefox and every page works just fine with it.

Well 32bit windows would be enough for most people if Microsoft fixed 4gb issue. 32bit Os is capable to address up to 64GB of memory but max memory per allocation is 4gb. In linux that is solved with highmem option but it windows it just doesn't work like it supposed to. Vista x64 works fine but lack of drivers is the reason why people are not migrating to XP or Vista.

So I can agree with AuDioFreaK39 until in this case 32bit version of windows exist companies will mainly focus on 32bit drivers and they will neglect x64.

Interesing - and how might an x86 OS be capable of addressing up to 64GB of memory?  I've never heard this before.
On linux u can enable in kernel two options, if i remember correctly by default linux sees only 1GB or 2GB:

HIGHMEM solution for using up to 4 GB of memory
HIGHMEM solution for using up to 64 GB of memory

Quote
HIGHMEM solution for using 64 GB of memory

This is enabled via the PAE (Physical Address Extension) extension of the PentiumPro processors. PAE addresses the 4 GB physical memory limitation and is seen as Intel's answer to AMD 64-bit and AMD x86-64. PAE allows processors to access physical memory up to 64 GB (36 bits of address bus). However, since the virtual address space is just 32 bits wide, each process can't grow beyond 4 GB. The mechanism used to access memory from 4 GB to 64 GB is essentially the same as that of accessing the 1 GB - 4 GB RAM.

Ignore that part about AMD 64-bit and Pentium PRO. Anyway there are ways to fix it, and until Vista came out we were stuck with Windows XP x64 which wasn't even supported by MS and most companies didn't released drivers.

In linux case hype is good. Hype brings more developers and users so for regular user problems will be fixed faster. My favorite OS is Debian so for workstations i prefer Ubuntu which is similar to Debian but it is focused more on workstation, while debian is more focused on server market.

If only OpenGL would be stronger then more people would adapt any type of distribution because they would be able to play games. Maybe in the future somebody will break Microsofts monopoly and there will be another  game API which would work on all OS-es.

You can read review on fudzilla:

It would be cool if with press of turbo button gpu would be overclock too.
