Customize Your Windows With Styler 1.401

For the last 1 year this site provides you the best Windows customization as they released. And to use all the visual customizations you might need to use some other utility tools to apply all the changes inside a theme. Styler toolbar is such a tool. Styler toolbar allows you to do a lot of interesting customizations, though it is not easy to use at first. It can add a drop shadow to your windows, change Clear Type contrast, change a visual style's color or a wallpaper's and much more.
But its most useful function is located in the "Styler Toolbar" which can entirely change the look and feel of the Windows XP's toolbar. So, you can change your toolbar to make it look like Windows Vista's or Apple's Mac OS X.

Styler doesn't use much memory (less than 1MB when it's used in the background), but to use all its function, especially for the drop shadow, you'll need a powerful computer.

RoTKiV's "Vista" skin is included in the archive, To install it, just drag and drop the "Vista Styler" folder into "Program FilesStylerTBskinsStyler's", it's that simple.

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Beta Build 7601.16543.100403-1630 Is Leaked & Available For Downloading

The news of Windows 7 Service pack 1 Beta is available to Microsoft Connect users was heard over the past few days and then everyone assumed that It was only a matter of time until someone posted a copy of a beta release build of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 publicly. The release is then spread via P2P services with no option to control or block the release from being downloaded.

The download size is 1.2 GB which includes Service Pack installers for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 versions. The latest leaked build of Windows 7 SP1 x86 has size of 286 MB whereas the x64 is 536 MB and it may take about 3.3 GB of disk space upon installation.. To install the SP1 beta, you need uninstall any previously installed Service Pack (we are talking about the previously leaked SP1) before installing SP1 beta.

The beta release will expire between April – July 2011. It is not clear yet if it will be possible to update from a beta Service Pack to the final release. A public beta of Windows 7 SP1 is expected to be released in July.

The leaked Windows 7 SP1 release has the build number 7601.16562.100603-1800. It was originally distributed to select beta testers but has since then founds its way to P2P sites and other distribution services.

The Windows 7 SP1 beta build 7601.16562.100603-1800 was compiled on June 3rd, 2010. As we have reported before, Windows 7 SP1 comes with only minor updates which includes all the previous updates delivered through Windows Update.

But there is another reason why users should wait with the downloading and installing: Windows 7 SP1 will not add any new features to the operating system. It is rumored that Service Pack 1 might include USB 3.0 support and enhanced Bluetooth and Wi-Fi stacks but that has not been confirmed by Microsoft yet.

A word of caution for users who think about downloading this beta SP1 release. Malicious users often use releases of popular applications to spread their malware with those releases.

Windows 8 Build 7705.0.100129-1930 Compiled Unconfirmed News

Recently another news from russian website Wzor is spread around the net. Wzor notes that Microsoft has apparently set on a course to building Windows 8 silently, and even provided the Build strings for a few assembles of the next iteration of Windows family available exclusively in Redmond. The Redmond company is reportedly compiling new interim versions of Windows 8 at a constant pace, having offered the following Builds the earlier month: 7702.0.100126-1751, 7703.0.100127-1845, 7704.0.100128-1900 and 7705.0.100129-1930. Per the numbers in the build string, 7705.0.100129-1930 was compiled on January 29, 2010. Microsoft has yet to confirm or deny the fact that the information offered by Wzor is valid. Wzor is a source with a proven track record of delivering accurate information of the software giant’s moves form the pre Windows 7 era, that otherwise would be kept under the tightly sealed translucent lid of Steven Sinofsky, president, Windows and Windows Live Division.

150 Million Copies Windows 7 Sold On 1st 8 Months

Just 2 months earlier Microsoft announced is just sold 100 million Windows 7 copies around the world. On 23rd June 2010 Microsoft announced the incredible milestone on their Windows Team Blog, those 150 million sales figures, that means approximately 7 copies of Windows 7 being sold each second. So it indicates sales are really beginning to pick up big time now for Microsoft.
The increase in sales likely reflects a general increase in enterprise technology spending, which means not only do Microsoft benefit from all this, but so do hardware manufacturers.
These translate into sales figures of about 25 million licenses a month, and according to Microsoft that rate is still increasing. Looking back, the previous sales figures were just 10 million a month. In March a total of 90 Million copies had been sold, and then by April 100 million had been sold.

The blog post also states an important observation in that “between companies actively deploying and evaluating it, approximately 75 percent of enterprises are looking at Windows 7 for their organization” This was never the case with Windows Vista and it’s one of the many reasons why it never took off like Windows 7 has.

So despite Steve Jobs putting down PC’s, it seems they are still selling like hotcakes. Microsoft recently reported that 365 million PC’s are sold each year, that’s a million a day!

Here's the official blog post by Brandon LeBlanc-
I have a couple of things to tell you about today. First off, we are excited to announce that Windows 7 has sold 150 million licenses to-date. As I’ve said before, Windows 7 is the fastest selling operating system in history with 7 copies of Windows 7 sold every second. Earlier this month, I published a post about Tami Reller’s keynote at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch U.S. Technology Conference. One of the points that stood out for me was her comment that between companies actively deploying and evaluating it, approximately 75% of enterprises are looking at Windows 7 for their organization. That’s amazing! And of course people continue to be excited about the features and benefits of Windows 7, and the PCs that our partners are delivering for Windows 7. You can read about many of the awesome Windows 7 PCs from my colleague Ben Rudolph (Ben the PC Guy) over on the Windows Experience Blog.

One of the things that people love about Windows 7 is how seamlessly it works with Windows Live, our free apps for sharing, photos, movies and communication. Starting tomorrow June 24th, we are releasing the beta versions of the new Messenger, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker and Sync. You can read more about this from the Windows Live Team on Inside Windows Live. Together, the new Windows Live Essentials combine the power of the PC and the reach of the cloud to enhance the Windows 7 experience. The way people connect and share with each other continues to shift toward the cloud and we recognize that. The PC continues to be the hub for important activities such as managing email, organizing photos, watching movies and listening to music. What the new Windows Live Essentials does is blends together the best of the PC with the best of the cloud. I’ll be posting my thoughts about Windows Live Essentials tomorrow.

Microsoft Windows History: At A Glance From Windows 1.0 to 7

From Microsoft To Windows:
Microsoft Corporation is a multinational computer technology corporation that develops, manufactures, licenses, and supports a wide range of software products for computing devices. Headquartered in Redmond, Washington, USA, its most profitable products are the Microsoft Windows operating system and the Microsoft Office suite of productivity software. As of the third quarter of 2009, Microsoft was ranked as the third largest company in the world, following PetroChina and ExxonMobil. It is also one of the largest technological corporations in the world.

The company was founded on April 4, 1975, to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for the Altair 8800. Microsoft rose to dominate the home computer operating system market with MS-DOS in the mid-1980s, followed by the Windows line of operating systems. Many of its products have achieved near-ubiquity in the desktop computer market. One commentator notes that Microsoft's original mission was "a computer on every desk and in every home, running Microsoft software."

Microsoft has taken two parallel routes in its operating systems. One route has been for the home user and the other has been for the professional IT user. The dual routes have generally led to home versions having greater multimedia support and less functionality in networking and security, and professional versions having inferior multimedia support and better networking and security. And its also a business trick also i think.


History Of Windows Operating Systems:
The first version of Microsoft Windows, version 1.0, released in November 1985, lacked a degree of functionality and achieved little popularity, and was to compete with Apple’s own operating system. Windows 1.0 is not a complete operating system; rather, it extends MS-DOS. Microsoft Windows version 2.0 was released in November, 1987 and was slightly more popular than its predecessor. Windows 2.03 (release date January 1988) had changed the OS from tiled windows to overlapping windows.

Microsoft Windows 3.0, released in 1990, was the first Microsoft Windows version to achieve broad commercial success, selling 2 million copies in the first six months. Windows 3.0 featured improvements to the user interface and to multitasking capabilities. It received a facelift in Windows 3.1, made generally available on March 1, 1992. Windows 3.1 support ended on December 31, 2001.

In July 1993, Microsoft released Windows NT based on a new kernel. NT was considered to be the professional OS and was the first Windows version to utilize preemptive multitasking. Windows NT would later be retooled to also function as a home operating system, with Windows XP.

On August 24, 1995, Microsoft released Windows 95, a new, and major, consumer version that made further changes to the user interface, and also used preemptive multitasking. Windows 95 was designed to replace not only Windows 3.1, but also Windows for Workgroups and MS-DOS. It was also the first Windows operating system to use Plug and Play capabilities. The changes Windows 95 brought to the desktop were revolutionary.

The next in the consumer line was Microsoft Windows 98 released on June 25, 1998. It was substantially criticized for its slowness and for its unreliability compared with Windows 95, but many of its basic problems were later rectified with the release of Windows 98 Second Edition (98SE) in 1999.

As part of its "professional" line, Microsoft released Windows 2000 in February 2000. During 2004 part of the Source Code for Windows 2000 was leaked onto the internet. This was bad for Microsoft as the same kernel used in Windows 2000 was used in Windows XP. The consumer version following Windows 98 was Windows Me (Windows Millennium Edition). Released in September 2000, Windows Me implemented a number of new technologies for Microsoft: most notably publicized was "Universal Plug and Play". Windows Me was criticized also a lot, due to slownesses, freezes and hardware problems.

In October 2001, Microsoft released Windows XP, a version built on the Windows NT kernel that also retained the consumer-oriented usability of Windows 95 and its successors. This new version was widely praised in computer magazines. It shipped in two distinct editions, "Home" and "Professional", the former lacking many of the superior security and networking features of the Professional edition. Additionally, the first "Media Center" edition was released in 2002, with an emphasis on support for DVD and TV functionality including program recording and a remote control.

In April 2003, Windows Server 2003 was introduced, replacing the Windows 2000 line of server products with a number of new features and a strong focus on security; this was followed in December 2005 by Windows Server 2003 R2.

On January 30, 2007 Microsoft released Windows Vista. It contains a number of new features, from a redesigned shell and user interface to significant technical changes. But Windows Vista has been subject to some criticism.

Then in 22 October 2009 Microsoft releases its latest Operating system Windows 7.
