comment Templates for writing a Turkish programming book in Microsoft Word 2007
Locking yourself into what? Word is more than capable of being used to write a book. If your writing a book you should be concentrating on the content, not the design. Take a good look through the links in RedGrittyBrick's answer below though...

comment Make Windows 7 shutdown/restart more graceful
Actually, Windows does know how to shutdown applications. ALL windows applications have to take part in a Windows Message Handling and must define a WndProc Callback....If in 2011 you are using an app that doesn't know how to shutdown correctly.....

You cant hibernate for windows update and other maintenance, which is usually when I want to restart. Mostly my PC sleeps!

comment Make Windows 7 shutdown/restart more graceful
I've just restarted again, the 'problem' seem to be that, W7 does shutdown the apps but only while the UI blocking dialog is up... so if you cancel and attend to the blocking app you then have to shutdown again...and again... I can kind of see what the designers were thinking, it just seems awkward in practise. Why block? why not have a floating window or notification window that shuts down apps iteratively?
