Windows 7 Released to the Public

Windows 7 was up for download at TechNet, but naturally it was hammered to death.

In any case, I am quite excited for the release of 7. The new taskbar will take some getting used to for many people, but I think many will find that it is a nice added improvement.

The speed is wonderful. Apparently 7 will turn off services when they are not being used, and dynamically start them up.

Here is what really got me though.

Little things like that make me happy.

Midi vs Live

Posted in Uncategorized by iamscience on January 3, 2009

I am a big fan of video game music, some of the best being from games like Command and Conquer composed by Frank Klepacki and Total Annihilation composed by Jeremy Soule.

Another guy, by the name of Chance Thomas also composes great music, and made a great demonstration of MIDI vs Live music.

I thought that was a neat demonstration. The MIDI instruments sounded great, but it is nothing compared to the real thing.
