217w ago - This weekend Paul Thurrott at [Register or Login to view links] reports that the first Windows 8 details have been leaked by Microsoft's PC maker partners.

Below is a brief rundown the new Windows 8 details, with more details linked above for those interested.

App Store

Think iPhone App store or Android Marketplace but with a Microsoft twist. Rumored to be named Windows Store. I'm curious if this is cross platform with Windows Phone 7, and maybe 360 support?

Internet Explorer 9

Included with Windows 7 will be Microsoft's next generation browser. After looking thru the new tech demos for IE 9 I admit I'm not really excited for this. It still feels like they are playing catch up with Firefox and Chrome.

A leaked release date of August 2010 was seen. However browsers are personal, try the demo [Register or Login to view links].

Windows Live Wave 5

The only real details are it will ship with Windows 8. The Windows Live Wave 4 beta is available now, SYNC is a big improvement. Try it [Register or Login to view links].

Microsoft Releases Windows 7 Anti-piracy Update (KB971033)

235w ago - When you are installing updates over the next week or so be aware that Microsoft has finally released their anti-piracy update (KB971033) which can cause issues for many Windows 7 users, even those who got their copy of Windows 7 legitimately.

To quote: "For those of you who have a pirated copy of Windows 7 or have bought your computer from Dell, Best Buy or Gateway where Windows 7 was pre-installed you may want to stay away from this update.

While it isn't supposed to make your operating system unusable, it will keep asking you to pay for it and will also make your wallpaper a boring blank solid color.

So before you decide to just install all of your updates when you shut down your computer make sure you check to make sure the file isn't downloaded and ready to install. This is of course if you did not install the operating system yourself or pirated it."
