The head gnome in charge of PlayingWithMyWeiner.com, the only gaming site run by a chick with two, count 'em TWO weiners!
As far as particulars, I am a WoW player, with a 80 gnome rogue and 70 gnome tank on Lothar US.
I dig RPGs, both Japanese and Western. I'm excited by games with good writing. Visuals are great, but are less important to me than the overall experience. That's not to say that I'm a casual gamer, but rather that I'm a Dragon Quest-type gamer, not a Final Fantasy type (though I play and enjoy both series.)
Right now I'm playing WoW, Fallout 3, Little Big Planet, DQ IV, and whatever doesn't suck on my iPhone.
Microsoft is trying to put Vista behind them as quickly as possible. Or are they?
The Redmond, Washington-based megacorp just announced that the first beta for Windows 7 will begin on January 13, 2009. This would seem to indicate that soon V**** will be merely an unhappy memory, like Windows Me. But what is really under the hood of this “new” operating system?
According to the Computerworld blogosphere, not much. The current build runs as slowly as Vista - that is to say 40% slower than Windows XP. It is just as much as a resource hog, if not worse. Finally, 7 has a freshly muddled Graphical User Interface, as if you hadn’t just come to terms with the GUI-upending Vista. And don’t give the “it’s still a beta” story. From a kernel perspective, it’s not. What it is Vista Mk 2.
Bottom Line: absolutely dying for a new OS? Consider getting yourself a nice pretty Snow Leopard.
