Windows 7 on October 22nd

Microsoft announced that his new baby (Windows 7) would be available for public on October 22nd this year. It’s pretty soon.

It’s Rebecca’s Blog on which are so many posts like cars on NY’s streets during rush hours.

I’ve recently switched from hosted Exchange account to GMail and had about 100 of contacts in my Outlook data file. Too much to enter manually, but luckily GMail is offering import function using CSVĀ files. Yuppi I’ve said. But it was too soon to celebrate victory.
