I would highly recommend a Linux-style OS to replace Windows and all OS and maybe even most regular software that will cost consumers zero dollars. I want Linux or perhaps a Cambrian style fellow or group to program a version of Linux that is remarkably dummified while retaining total usability, with detail and assistance that falls away as complexity of chore escalates.
Let's see this before the Christmas selling season! I want it in French too, by golly! Heh!
I also am quite pleased that you can make your own buttons on Google Toolbar, but I want a browser that does this. Make it a standing function in Mozilla's code. Toolbars are doggie doors for viruses in my opinion. Especially Yahoo. Forget that!

Vista is meaningless. XP does everything I want to, and 98 does almost everything i want to while using less hard memory. Instead of having these OS use more and more memory they should use the same or less. It is a process of refinement, not cluttering. This is how I honestly feel, and I never plan to purchase Vista, or for that matter, any non-open source OS at anytime in my future.
That looks like a serious strike to vista and many new os in the future. businesses have no incentive to move up to vista and microsoft should not use their monopoly to try to force them to. i would like to see a more user-friendly version of linux, frankly. The current linux is unusable by the average oaf, such as myself. If it were interfaced properly [see: extensively, with notation], it would be *perfect* and free, and replace windows almost entirely in a few years unless Microsoft changed their ways dramatically.

I like this idea! I might put them on my glasses someday. I'd have a micro-projector set up to shine on my lens, and have it receive information from a radio signal transmitter going to my computer or a belt receiver, or maybe from a computer in my watch. It'd have voice recognition software and give me latest data, news, and could also record things I suppose from my field of vision. It might even monitor the motion of my eyeball and use that as data input. It could possibly receive all kinds of facial expressions, but i might need a more ambient capture.
I'd like to have such a feed for my computer, but perhaps in an environment where I am better protected by Constituional and Bill of Rights laws and maybe also from viruses and state adware.

Geomagnetics and Creationism
The earth's magnetic field is losing charge at a rate of about 8% every 130 years, as found in 1967 from the 1835-1965 period. This would calculate to the planet being extremely highly charged during creation 6000 years ago, and losing charge steadily since then.
Furhtermore I have read studies where deep core samples into rock observed under microscope have found particles literally 'coming into being' deep inside rock, recorded in fossil-like manner. This is like a debug developer's trick that you're not supposed to see until late in the game when you're already good. Nifty.

There are several excellent software components you can acquire to make your installation of Windows XP work faster. Your computer is likely capable of much higher performance than Microsoft sells you. Why this is so, I do not know.
Hardware - Software competition and Eaves [boring]
It is possible to increase computer performance by perhaps 30-50% by changing standard tweaks in hardware and even in programs like Mozilla to make your computer and network run faster. The average consumer simply believes that if the computer is too slow it either has a virus on it or it has gotten old and you need a new one. Have software companies exploited this decaying of performance to spur new computers being bought? The same style of workmanship has shown up in automobiles from time to time and more recently since the and 1970's.
I have also noticed a considerable amount of 'built-in' surveillance port options that cannot be unchecked. Automatic wireless cards, printers that always keep tabs on what they print, autonomous network activity. Spyware, Adware, and the NSA's law mechanisms and mandatory backdoors to all registered software. This should be outed like financial monitoring.
Tweaks [juicy meat]
Beyond this, some of the better ways to recapture strolling performance is through software. TUNE XP 1.5 from Driverheaven [DH] at Majorgeeks.com [use the TX download site] can produce several fixes.
UDMA-66 is a good starter tweak. It is accessible in the BIOS settings [which you can get to by tapping DEL at startup]. The UDMA cable runs from the motherboard to some device in your computer, and the 33/66 is the number of cables it contains. Since 1998 or so computers have used 66 or 100 cable UDMA cords. Windows automtically assumes you're using UDMA-33 even in 2006. Strange flaw. Changing this in the BIOS or TuneXP will increase the speed at which your computer talks to itself. =faster.
RAM latency ratings substantially improve RAM performance. Normal RAM latency for most models is 3T CPU cycles. That is RAM just plain *waiting* to do its duty. Most modern RAM can function at 2T cycles of waiting. You can find this also in the BIOS, and it should be under DRAM or SDRAM or DDR latency. Check it to "2" and your RAM will become, logically, 3/2 as effective. Or at least, one of the performance bottlenecks will be widened by that amount.
There is a DNS cache size, and I/O page lock limit, and there are settings of virtual RAM available for various functions that can each be adjusted upwards just by clicking. TUNE XP will get the DNS and I/O, and the pay program Advanced System Optimizer will get the other RAM setting.
Mozilla is a fine surfboard but it is limited to only one data request at a time. To about:config in the address line. There will be way down the list an http.networking.proxy.pipelining and another one w/o proxy a few lines down. they're booleans set to false. there's also a 'maxrequest' one set to 4. Set it to 30 and make the pipelines true by toggling them. then right click -> new -> integer and type in 'nglayout.initialpaint.delay' and set it to '0'. This will tell mozilla to wait 0 time bits before acting on info it receives. Bonus. It cuts out all the slack.
You can also play with overclocking your processor or video card, but if you do be sure to read everything everyone says about it first and try opening up your tower's airways in a safe manner. Maybe add an outside cooling fan. That's pretty chilly. Always remember to attack the bottlenecks. Changing your system from a 3Ghz chip to a 7Ghz chip won't help at all if you've only got 128Mb of RAM.
In the same way doubling your wealth won't help at all if there are still starving people in Africa.
PS I had just realized that the trinary encryption is even more useful for extending the usefulness of RAM space than it is for HD! It could potentially be used to reduce network loads and processor dialogue. I especially like its usefulness for reducing wireless communication and replacing high frequency wireless signals with useful low frequency modulations.
A hard drive should be written with all possible brief 01 sequences named "a, b, c, d; or 1,2,3,4..." heavy, or static on the HD in one sector about 2mb in size. The remaining portion of the HD shall be written as 'AVGRD24GTYY6' and code over to the key. This can allow multilayer encryption techniques that can fit hundreds of thousands of times more data onto the same HD, depending on the size of the key.
I donate this information to AMD and Intel, and all 3rd party private computer makers, and all techs who could use it for good. This is trinary. [Polynary.]
This same feat can be accomplished in radio transmissions and broadcasts to sets having special decoder systems. The prefix will be sent out every several seconds of data, and the receiver will tune to that system of keys to decode the information being dispensed. This way each waveform will be a *bundle* of information instead of its basic translation. This can allow heavily encrypted information and very information dense long-wave transmissions.
It also allows software defined radio, described in Better Godliness Through Chemistry and the elimination of the use of shortwaves and ultrashortwaves, and considerably widens the usefulness of TV and radio channels.
Make me happy.
