    Microsoft products without a “big brother” module? I guess it is too good to be true! [:)]

    Then behind the eight ball I must be. Microsoft either drops the big brother act, or they don’t get my business.

    Here you come?  If you haven’t made the switch yet, you are behind the 8-ball my friend

    Seriously, Axcess (and I) love Microsoft technologies; however when it comes to serving up web pages, nothing beats Apache Linux in my book.

    Linux, here I come.

  5. Avatarjimr says:

    HA-HA! – I don’t believe MS makes a version without the “big brother” module [:)]

  6. AvatarTVNews says:

    How much to get it without all the big brother stuff?

  7. Avatarjimr says:

    I have just been informed that you can pre-order Windows 7 today at the Microsoft Store.

    You’ll get it for at least half off and that translates into $49.99 for the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade and $99.99 for the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade.

    The offer runs until July 11, 2009 or until supplies run out, whichever comes first.
