comment How can I use Vista backed up contacts elsewhere? BUT they were not exported first
Well, both Outlook and Gmail support both CSV and VCF for import, so take your pick! :) A CSV file will contain all your contacts in a single file. VCF-files are one per contact. For CSV you might have to map custom fields to the format supported in the app you want to import into. I tested Outlook import, and it has good custom mapping features. It didn't support drag-and-drop from WLM, which was disappointing. In gmail importing csv from WLM export was a breeze, no custom mapping needed. VCF also retains pictures.

comment Windows 7 64-bit PDF thumbnails problem
It's still in beta isn't it? The Foxit pdf ifilter has received some recognition as it's apparently being used in Microsoft's own hosted services! Look here for the free (desktop) download: foxitsoftware.com/pdf/ifilter I'm installing that now, will let you know how it goes..

I have a totally working USB floppy drive in my office desk drawer, and you'd be amazed by no litte use it sees these days! :) But still, every so often, I need to install Win XP x64 for instance, and suddenly I have to pop a driver in there.. :)

comment Are tape archives still used?
Dave Webb, you should also be clearer on one point - Windows Server 2008 still supports tape-drivers, thus you can backup to tape but you need a third-party app! But, the Windows Backup application doesn't support tape-backup any longer..

comment Are tape archives still used?
Tape archives aren't going away any time soon - but it's being supplemented by very large disk-arrays for disk-based backup. The Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape (D2D2T) solutions offered by many vendors are the solution for larger companies. You get all the benefits of tape archives for long-term storage, and all the benefits of multi-version, quick restore times of disk-based backup, AND you get the 24/7 backup window! ;-)

comment Windows 7 and Windows XP Mode, run webcam?
VPC also supports USB devices, so does Virtual XP Mode. The latter is just prepackaged from MS. VirtualBox will bring nothing new to this table, in my opinion..

comment Windows 7 and Windows XP Mode, run webcam?
Publishing apps is nothing magical, it just runs the virtual app in it's own window, with all the restraints you normally have, ie reduced support for hardware, "cumbersome" interaction with the hosts filesystem etc. VMWare Workstation has the same funtionality, it's called Union there. It's crap. :)
