It seems as if the Windows Live Services are really blowing up. It seems as if they are the next big thing. Pictures, mail and blogs, etc. Will it be the reinvention of Windows software, the sarge in charge? Windows Live will, make computing more creative. I hope computing will be less of point and click and less of keyboarding and more personal interaction without overworking our brains. Computing should be more like a TV and a remote. Why wait forever for a PC to boot up and shut down. It should be as simple as pushing a power button and getting instant results. It has been promised to us for a long time and I really do believe it is possible to achieve that. I think MS may be holding out on us. I think webtv was a good thing. It was just too ahead of its time. It would work better with a smaller keyboard and a remote. Look at how the Wii has revolutionized gaming and fun in general. Multiplayer and virtual console capabilities, how sweet is that? Nintendo was smart to make such a move. Sure the PC has different software from different software developers who make software for Windows. Windows looks better than the Mac but the mac runs better and has less software developers but that is good. Less conflicts. It allows less complications and people know what to expect. But Mac OSs are getting better and looks better. Windows should follow suit. Too many programs are out there and I don't want Microsoft or Apple should be a monopoly or duopoly. They can do
with the OSs and let different developers create software and give more features. Try getting a decent amount of programs and program capabilities so as to limit the excess of software out there. Do what Roxio and Nero and Gear has done. They have expanded features over the last few years and they can burn almost all discs, rip music, burn movies, tag music, create jewel cases, etc. Hopefully they will crush the competition while still remaining credible and have good software. Less software manufacturers divided and more unity to work on software.
