do you know that you can open a command prompt logged in as the vista Admin account (equivilent of root on linux - it has NO UAC or anytyhing so be careful) by typing cmd into the start menu search bar and holding control+shift when you hit search/enter
Theres a ton of this 'hidden treasure' that you speak of. I had access to every single beta version of Vista including the final Vista Ultimate x64 (I liked the codename Longhorn lol). They had many ideas that changed throughout all the betas.. And personally, I think the released revision is really good compared to everything in the betas. As for a list of all the new tech tools like jbennet mentioned, I don't know of a website or anywhere that posts all these..

That's what I meant from the start :) Maybe I should work on being more clear in what I say. I understand now. There's a nice simple one I used before called ... ah ... I'll get back to you. It crashed a lot, but was nice and easy and had next to no features ... I think it was MS Sound Recorder :P Nah. Only messing.
Red Jumpsuit is too mainstream where I am... The song Face Down is destroying everyone's mind (my girlfriend thinks so too).
As for Joe Satriani, I love his music.
I'm also into Anti-Flag, Bad Religion, and Less Than Jake now. And also, for those of you in Boston, MA, Blood for Blood is my second favorite band (under Led Zeppelin, of course) -- they are a Boston Trash Hardcore band.
(by the way, thought I'd point this out, that when I right click on Satriani, because it's spelt wrong, I get Triangulate as the first choice... Also, did anyone notice that Firefox has spelt listed as a misspelled word? And offline?)
