Years ago a few people I know used to swear by the Atari ST/E for the audio trackers and music software. I've got an Amiga 1200 in the attic with some tracker software on too lol
Yep, hardware hacking for stuff isn't un-common. It's why we still use tube amps, it'll give such a unique sound. =P And that's what really makes the music special, the sounds.

Anti-trust concerns would play a big factor in developing this software I would imagine. It would need to be a paid for separate program at least.

I apologize if this was said 50 time already:
Lack of built in features.
Windows 7 is my first Windows computer since 2002 as I use an iMac as my main computer. over the years i tried differnt versions of windows and 7 is the frst one that I hae been happy with. Problem is there are many features that were standard in Mac OS that i don't understand why they are not built into the OS.
off the top of my head:
Disk utility alternative (bundled in Mac, does virtually anything that deals with drives, flash cards, other forms of long-term storage, and disk images)
Systeim-wide speel check
Antivirus
.pdf reader
multiple format extracting (.zip, .tar, .7z, eta)

tho i have to admit that there is a lot more included then in XP or even Vista.
and I'm aware that this would make some companies lose buisness.

really mac comes with anti virus? i thought macs couldent get viruses? i am thinking of getting a macbook pro but only because it has 7 hour battery life on the 15inch version then install win7 on it lol. i havent seen a windows pc with such a long battery life..

that would be good though for microsoft to provide free anti virus.. i pay 50 euros 2 years for nod32

plus the extracting you can extract .zip as always but then you have to pay for winrar which your right they should add more as you say .rar/.tar and the others

Yeah only mac server comes with an AV because most mac users do not get contact with viruses. if Apple one day said that they were bundling clamav into mac desktop it wouldn't bee good for their reputation.
The MacBook pro is a pretty good laptop and it finally has a SD card slot. If you use that to run 7 on you should have no problems.

I personally am happy that they did not bundle a bunch of apps. I have my list of free apps I load into any windows machine, and I would not want to shift away from that unless MS was to release a better option.

Picasa for photos,
Aviara for AV,
tinyspell for spell checker,
PowerISO for disk utility,
Foxit Reader for Pdfs,
Winrar for extracting..

I know these apps well, and would not admire Windows for releasing apps that did the same thing, unless they did it better.. or offered something these other apps did not.. Windows is highly customize-able, especially in the apps department..
