    Great job guys,

     

    But could you post all these videos in some easily accessible or searchable place? like a link in a main category, or even a link on Wikipedia.

     

    It would be nice to have quick access to this history. Otherwise it might get lost over time among vast video resources on Channel9.

     

    Just a though, does somebody know how many gigabytes(terabytes, petabytes) all Channel9 videos are?

    Could you post a banner of sorts (up on top of the page somewher) so that people can see how much work you guys did?

    Any chance of putting these all together into one video so I can watch them all at once?

    Any chance to get the 20+ episodes into one full downlodable package, in a zip file somewhere? Also, a DVD in the company store would certainly be a best seller! I would buy 10 DVDs for sure!

     

    Moreover, the export into Zune format doesn't seem to work, for me.

    We have been brainstorming about how else to offer these.  One full downloadable package seems like the most effecient.  Let me see what we can do on our end.

    Any update regarding the possibility to have a full package of all the MS history? Also, a DVD sold at the company store could be a hit!

    How about the Internet and future of Microsoft operating systems ?

    Microsoft Windows Operating Systems like windows vista are very much likely to unable to provide satisfactory performance and support to the users for using Internet. Also newly release windows 7 has the same problems though initially it was somehow light and faster performance. Now a days Internet is a difficult place to work or just to connect for a while. Like just connecting to the Internet for a minute the computer get rush of privacy or piracy items of malware, spyware and unwanted adware or harmful activeX disable the computer and systems.

     

    On the top new we can see new windows 7 has some simplified and colourful features are looks interesting but the usability and the security of the systems are in question ? Like windows Vista now is the systems of trailers of loads have 100s of update and also service packs (1 and 2) makes the systems very much complicated and sluggish has little opportunity to adopt with others systems software.

     

    Let we can have a sight at the computer of Windows Operating Systems with a system below and has been tried to fix the error of the Microsoft Windows Operating Systems and it feature functions: Due to the complexity of the Operating System it has been tried with a newly installed windows vista/7 system and it’s functioning capacity.

     

     

    It has found some critical unwanted 152 registry entries, 42 junk files, 2594 privacy or piracy items and 11 performance features errors. Also it has thousands of harmful activeX items and other harmful features, however, Microsoft Windows products like Windows defender or Windows malicious software removal tools are unable to do anything with these. Initially it has few registry errors and junk files and only 4 privacy items and few harmful activeX items. So just connecting on the Internet it found to caught half of these and within couple of days have got all these harmful items. In a month could be millions of harmful items are being resident in the computer. So now it is found so difficult to connecting to the Internet or have very much slower and sluggish connection.

     

    Now we can see in the above that with the help of PC Errors fixing system it has been scan and clean the PC and finally looks it has been found cleaned. The system shows to has done cleaning by removing nearly 10,000 items and blocked thousands of harmful bad activeX. It also can be seen that the Error fix system shows PC health is good and the health meter shows in light green position. However, this PC clean though have little improvement in the PC speed and memory the overall performance of the PC is in question, specially using the Internet all thousands of these are coming back again.

     

    Let we can have a sight at another tools used to connect to the Internet. Below is a Internet connecting software can connect to the network secured/unsecured. It can also use multiple adapter at any time or can change the mode of adapters. It show all the network are showing green and available for connection, however, windows network systems are somehow or completely unable to recognize or to make a connection at all.

     

    So the Microsoft software and the other Internet product are very much is in some contradiction and the users found sufferings a lot.

    A great documentary. I started it today with the first episode and finished it the same day with the series finale. It was both fun and knowledge to watch.

    This is great! Any chance to get one file compiling all the episodes? The best would be to release a DVD available at the company store. Or just a downloadable file

    I am very sad to see no "history" beyond 1999. I think you could have stopped at the release of Windows Vista or 7. History for the next decade please or at least only a "products shipped" list.
