    Read-only network share, yet users can create shortcuts of listed folders and files

    AMD to Drop Vision Branding

    Probably an internal company thing that has to do with methodology/workflow/brainstorming/development processes, and decided to slap a label over it and was so proud of it they had to make the label itself public and emphasize it as part of the pride. In other words, it means nothing.

    Change boot disk without re-installing Windows?

    You need to use something like Clonezilla via PartedMagic or UBCD to "clone" your old HDD to your SSD with automatic resizing. After you do this, you will more than likely need to boot off of your Windows 7 CD to run the repair tools (very easy, doesn't take more than 5 minutes). After that...

    Windows 8 Sales Rate Higher Than Windows 7
