Re: Photos stacked by camera models in Windows Vista

Ah yes, I did use this feature quite frequently. Back when I did not organize my film vs digital images (or even any organization at all), I used this feature with my images which I placed the metadata in. I typically batch processed them on Photoshop which added the camera model (I used 3 film cam...

Re: R.I.P. Windows 7 2009-2020

Yeah, I already know that, I was referring to the people who pirate it unfortunately (I don't condone piracy in any way possible). I've heard that some people have pirated it as they can't stand regular Windows 10. I see. I apologize for my assumption. It was because there are several who would con...

PRODUCT (RED) DreamScene?

Is the PRODUCT (RED) DreamScene on the FTP server?

I do not have access to a FTP client at this location.

If it is on the FTP server, would it be permissible to share through some other way?

Thank you.

Re: Anyone know the orgin of the windows vista beta 2 sound?

If you have used Windows Vista, one of the most significant things you've likely noticed is the new Windows Aero interface. While Windows Aero may sound like just a cool name, it's actually an acronym that stands for Authentic, Energetic, Reflective and Open. Prior to RTM, the Windows Aero experien...

Re: R.I.P. Windows 7 2009-2020

Win7 is a great system. It has many new functions and a completely new Aero UI. But its success is based on its predecessor—Windows Vista. Most of the features of Win7 first appeared in Vista. But the programmers who designed Vista didn't consider the hardware configuration of PC at that time, so i...

Photos stacked by camera models in Windows Vista

This was previously discussed at the BetaArchive Wiki, but it of course will not warrant its own article (and it is the intent to illustrate it here). In Windows Vista, it is possible to stack photos by camera models (to see photos taken with a specific camera). https://www.betaarchive.com/imageuplo...

Re: Windows 10 and Microsoft's New Logo are NO GOOD!

There is also not going to be a "true successor of Windows 10" in the vein of which you speak. This statement: "so it's time for Microsoft to start the development of a true successor to Windows 10 and restore its old company logo!" demonstrates naïveté. It would be better for you to focus on legiti...

The end of an era (yes I realize I'm ignoring Windows 8.1, and for good reason). I understand your reasoning, but it is unfortunate that you disregard Windows 8.1.
