    "Longhorn Concept video" - haha!!!

    Id say Zune but that might change soon as the latest upgrade is giving me a list of performance issues.

    Surface / Silverlight once the apps show themselves.

    Has to be Visual Studio which makes a lot of those products possible by the provision of requisite software.

    Dovella it should be (Writer++) and not  (++Writer), but I agree with you. It's easier to pick a hundred rather than just the one. Its almost like being asked whether you prefer breakfast, lunch or dinner ( Tea here in Yorkshire - no, not the beverage!). They are all necessary and one does enjoy them all.

    Maybe he was trying to prevent creating a temporary copy of Writer? Tongue Out

    And you're all wrong. The coolest product MS has made is in fact Flight Simulator X, especially when combined with the right add-ons.

    I was going to say .NET but then you mentioned FS.  You are right, FS is definitely the coolest MS product in my opinion!  For me at least that is the program that got me into programming in the first place.  I have played it since the DOS days and it was my first computer game (ok so its more of a simulator than a game) Smiley  Ever since then I fell in love with aviation.  In fact, it drove me to solo an airplane on my 16th birthday and get a pilots license.

    Its amazing one program had such a large effect on my life.

    Don't say that, it makes me sad. Wink

    I'm 26 and it will be many years before I can even afford to start taking lessons. I want to get a license, but there's just no way right now. With my current scholarship I wouldn't be able to afford flying lessons in the US, let alone in Japan where it's about 4 times more expensive.

    I've been playing FS on and off since FS 5.1 under MS-DOS, but I didn't get seriously into it (and aviation as a whole) until FS2004, and the real heavy stuff (gettings lots of add-ons, a real yoke and rudder pedals, etc.) I didn't do until FSX.

    XBOX360 Elite Edition! Which I still don't have, unfortunately...

    If you stumbled and fell down, it doesn't mean yet, that you're going in the wrong direction.

    At least you're not colour blind.
