Bill Gates and Internet Explorer 7Written by Jeff Wyrick

Was Bill’s decision to release IE7 before Longhorn a good idea? - Most definitely. We have been waiting for over 8 years for PNG24 Transparency in IE4.
My list of things Microsoft has fixed since Windows XP SP2
• Automatic ActiveX Download blocking • Security
My list of things Microsoft is going fix in Internet Explorer 7 • PNG24 Alpha Transparency • 95% better Standards Support
How can I predict IE7 has better standards support? Well currently all I use for Web Design/Development is Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 and code it generates works wonders in both Firefox and Internet Explorer so I can see Microsoft is trying to improve on standards support by a great deal.
Boy I am so waiting for this IE7. When is it going to be released? This summer we will see Beta 1 of Internet Explorer 7. Keep up to date with release over at IE Team’s blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/
I own a Internet Marketing Information site and I run a SEO Forum. I am Microsoft follower and always stay up to date with Windows XP and Internet Explorer news.

•Video Card. For $100 you can get maximum of memory and performance. This is why we recommend to get external videocard •DVD Writer. RW+/- unfortunately Japanese manufacturers are in process of decision making on winning standards plus DVD of high density. Get both supported. •Hard Drive. Decent motherboards support IDE raid and you could experiment with striping (raid 0). Then if you purchase two IDE disks 400 GB each – you will get 800 GB – unbelievable for supercomputers – but you are on your own and cosmopolitan individual – step forward and be ahead of competition. •Troubleshooting. Understood and respected. First listen your mother board beeps and refer to its documentation. It might not see memory, graphical card, etc. When you are installing memory – be very careful to static electricity issue. When you are attaching your mother board to computer case – most typical issue is motherboard shorting – so do not be surprised to try your motherboard first outside case
