    Microsoft has announced it plans to offer IE8 via Windows Update.   In a move that will likely anger rivals such as Apple and Google, Microsoft will be pushing Internet Explorer 8 via Windows Update.

    Reviewing the first beta of an important release like Windows 7 is never an easy job to do. A confouding factor is that many people have already made up their mind about Windows 7; not because they have tried it, but because it's a Microsoft product, and therefore it sucks.

    Windows Vista has been out and about for a while now, and it has already been updated with a service pack, with a second service pack on its way.
