Europe getting 7 without IE, Bing is taking off, Morro, Google goes after Exchange, and more.

  • Microsoft will sell Windows 7 "E" Editions in Europe without Internet Explorer
  • Bing is off to a fast start
  • "News" surfaces about Morro
  • WWDC: What's in it for a Windows user?
  • Google goes after Exchange, offers free Outlook migration tool

Tip of the Week:

  • Living la Vida 7 means living like you have Mac OS X - Sometimes "going all in" requires a bit of rethinking. In this case, pre-populating the Windows 7 taskbar with all the shortcuts you regularly use and forgoing the Start Menu almost entirely.

Software Picks of the Week

  • Game Booster will disable system processes and clean your ram at the touch of a button to optimize your gaming performance.
    Thanks to Jason More for the tip.
  • Mozilla Firefox Add-on Collector allows you to pre-define all the Firefox add-ons you want and install them in a single click. Nice for reinstalls
    Thanks to Jason More for the tip.
