Odd and oldly new

Microsoft are cutting back? Well it appears to be so. According to this article in Electric News, Microsoft are offering a cut back version of XP to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and two other unspecified Asian countries.

"The pared-down version has retained a number of XP's standard features but differs in many ways from the full-price version. The home network option has been eliminated, graphics will be at a lower resolution and users will only be able to run three programmes simultaneously."

However it will have windows media player 9.
Read the article for details.

In other news, Agatha Christie will be making her way to your computer screens. According to Just Adventure, "Lee Sheldon has been hired by The Adventure Company (TAC) to write and design the first game under their recently acquired license for five games over the next six years based on Agatha Christie novels."

So expect M. Hercule Poirot to check your little grey dust bunnies between your keys.

take care,
