    Dear Onuora,

    A long time waiting for the new release by Microsoft had made us wonder, for Microsoft has suceeded bringing Windows 7 product sky high in the market until today. Now the time has come for Microsoft to fulfill the promise bringing a better Windows product to the consumers.

    Every Windows had given us the chance to look into how the system was build, and this is the most exiting part of the method where we can see through and figure it out by our self. It is open and by reveiling the secrets behind the system, it makes us easier to expand our computer knowledge individually. The run command on the start menu is the gate that gives us a one way ticket to unlock most of the problems that we have.

    I have seen some part of the new Windows now, and no question ask, it’s the best system I ever seen for now.  Additional Multiple Booting System, Windows, and The Windows Developer Preview, are added on the directory, and everything are there, it’s good for learning and knowing more about what’s mistery behind the computer. 

    Now the new Windows Developer Preview is on my Dell Inspiron 8600 machine, I would’nt worry so much because the program has an execute setup program that can replace the Windows Developer Preview when something goes wrong, and it’s hidden in a safe directory on the disk.

    Thank you.
