comment Gigabit - Throughput bound more by CPU/RAM, or Disk IO?
So what does "generally" really mean? I don't have an Intel Atom, but I do have an AMD E350 (similar to Atom, stronger graphics, dual core 1,6 GHz), and it doesn't seem to be able to saturate Gbit Ethernet despite a fast platter disk being installed, only doing 40 MB/s instead of 100 MB/s. - Okay, I just read that the E350 is underpowered in this regard. A dual-core Celeron 2,4 GHz would saturate the line just fine. - So I bought a CPU that is indeed an exception to the general rule, and that's what led me here in the first place.

comment How to disable so-called »accelerators« in IE 11
@terdon - Oh, come on … First, IE has improved a lot recently. Second, I don't want to install additional contiuous-update-ware on every machine when I already have IE. As I guess you know, IE cannot be uninstalled, it's part of the OS. - And to whom it may concern: Stop deleting and changing what I write here.

comment How to tell if windows 7 installer boot in EFI or BIOS?
Thanks. \Windows\Panther, didn't know such a beast was hiding inside my computer. As an alternative to using Notepad, one could use trusty old FINDSTR from the command prompt: findstr Callback_BootEnvironmentDetect \Windows\Panther\setupact.log

comment Does Windows Media Center (7 Ultimate x64) support BluRay?
@Patrick, thanks. I'm also using VLC: DVDFab » MakeMKV » VLC. What doesn't work for me at the moment is direct BD playback using VLC + keys database and AACS dynamic library. I tried the 32 bit version on Win8 64 bit. Maybe just a temporary problem, will retry later.

comment Does Windows Media Center (7 Ultimate x64) support BluRay?
PowerDVD 10 does not work with my Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge, complaining about allegedly insufficient graphic capabilities, inviting me to install a 100 MB (sic) update, and then shows the same error again. Also, it annoys me with forcing commercials upon me. - The second option works fine!

comment How can I play Blu-Ray movies on a PC upgraded to Windows 8?
@AndreasRejbrand : "But what if the user really wants to use WMC to play blue-ray movies?" - Well, then the user is out of luck. :)
