Windows 7 Is Over Priced

Posted by computerglobe on April 3, 2010 at 2:58 PM Comments comments (0)


Yes, Windows 7 is a little over a month old.  I can't believe it is already over a month old!  I remember, I was reading articles about Windows 7 like crazy before it came out.  When it first came out, the price was so ridiculous!  $199.00 For a Full Copy of Windows 7 Home Premium??  And omg, Windows Ultimate was really high too!  Lucky me, I got my copy for free from HP.  Who in the world would pay $400.00 for an OS? ...

Microsoft Office 2010 while still beta in my opinion is better then 2007, it is like Windows  7 is to MS Office 2010 as Vista is to MS office 2007.  WordArt has finally been finalized!  It is a lot easier to make WordArt, and edit it. It has also redone the backstage feature, it a lot easier to save/save as, open, and print. Also, the ribbon has been improved.  MS office beta has also added a Screenshot feature under insert; it shows all the wind...

VM Virtual Machine

Posted by computerglobe on April 3, 2010 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (0)


I have been looking into getting a VM (virtual machine) but I didn't really want to pay. I found 2 programs that I was interested and liked, VMware player, and VirtualBox. I personally like VMware player better, the UI (user interface) of VMware player is really nice. You can choose how much RAM you want dedicated for VMware player. You also choose how much of your hard drive you want for VMware player. All you do is click “Create a New Virtual Machine” t...
