Hah! I’m still fuming with Vista’s Defrag and my lost-and-found gigabyte of hard drive space and I’m stuck with it. I would’ve wanted to “upgrade” back to XP but that means I have to shell out money for another OS. It really challenges you ethically. Or maybe it’s time to finally try out Linux at least for mobile computing. But as of now, I’m stuck with Vista Home Basic on my little sidekick.
In any case, here’s some good news for Vista users (some say “losers” :p) like me. Stardock releases the public BETA for TweakVista, one of those power tools that lets you customize features and configurations using single-clicks rather than hacking your way through lines and lines of registry entries. TweakVista offers the following features:
- Security Handling. Users can now easily and safely adjust the way Windows handles security prompting including the new UAC (User Account Control)
- Memory Optimization
- Resource Control
- Start-Up Management
- Performance Assessments
- TweakVista.com integration
Looks like a very promising tool. The final version is supposed to launch with a free and a premium product (for $19.95).
