Microsoft takes hard line on Win 7 hardware

David Harrison

Shame about the drivers

Their hardware ain't so bad. What sucks is the bundled software. My Ergo 4000 keyboard has five nice app-launcher keys at the top. Great. But can you get the latest Intellitype to assign shift-, ctrl- and alt- values to those keys too? Can you buggery. Intellitype now sports 'key banks' but there's no way to switch between 'em on older keyboards. So why did they even bother?

Have switched to using Launchy for quick-launching apps.

OGC cracks one off on with new logo

On the money

Why the mockery? The new logo is bland, built from identikit members, unmemorable, grey and oversized. What more could you do to capture the spirit of Big Gov-er?
