Windows 7 Blog goes live

Windows 7 Blog goes liveThe new blog from Microsoft isn't much to write home about in terms of the wow factor or actual content at the moment. Hopefully, this will improve as the release date of the new OS draws nearer. If it's creators hold true to their intentions, it could be a valuable source of information on the forthcoming next generation OS. The blog is hosted by Steven Sinofsky & Jon DeVaan, the two senior development managers on the project. Within the first post they are keen to point out that the intention of the new blog is to allow 'open and honest, and two-way, discussion about how we balance all of these interests and deliver software on the scale of Windows'.

I'd say i spend maybe 35hrs a week playing on my pc.

Probably 3-4hrs on each weekday, plus 4hrs for a lan party every friday, plus probably 5hrs each of the days of the weekend.

I am probably what you'd call an avid pc gamer.

I dont see the point in these reports though, people who go to the i-series events could easily rack up 30+ hrs in 2 days!

It will be somehow used to show the evils of Gaming though.

I generally give about 3 hours a day gaming. Although when I´m busy that goes down to maybe 10 hours a week.

i can rack up more than that on holidays, but i certainly dont buy games regularly. if you're a dedicated pc gamer you stick to one or two games, not 100-200

Think I can smash that at times. If I`m on a tear and have a new game or something, it can be 6/7pm to 12/1/2am on weekdays and anything in excess of 8 hours sat and sun.

That`s atleast 46.

If the games` really good, which is very very rear these days, it`s not unknown stay up all night and go straight to work. That`ll most likely be a new mmo.

Silentsnake , its Lineage 2 ;] obviously from time to time i do short breaks for other games but to be honest there is not much titles that i will enjoy.
Starcraft2/Diablo3/Fallout3 <-- when this will appear in shops i will do a short (maybe long) break from Lineage2 again :)
