Cool look at an Easter Egg in Windows 7. Who even knew it was there? And does this mean God exists?

i have nothing to say about god mode... what i would like to call to attention tho is:

During her years at CNET News, Ina Fried has changed beats several times, changed genders once, and covered both of the Pirates of Silicon Valley. These days, most of her attention is focused on Microsoft. E-mail Ina.

Macs are like that sensitive guy that writes alot of love songs and plays guitar and looks real pretty, but really doesn`t get much work done.

Wouldn`t it be great if they put all this effort into making a stable platform for your applications that didn`t crash all the time?

Windows 7? Hell, they haven`t even gotten all the bugs out of XP! Call me when you release Service Pack 3...

I like macs because there are a lot of things that windows doesn`t offer that mac does. I like the fact that I can go on my computer and not get attacked by viruses. Also, macs are easier to back up and navigate around. I think some ppl hate macs only because they themselves didn`t now how to work it or didn`t put the effort in to learn how to use it.

I hate Macs because they suck. I don`t hate *all* Mac users, but a lot of them end up being my stupid clients, soooo...

"Why is it that some Windows users HATE Apple, Macs and Mac users but most Mac users don`t really give a poo about Windows users except maybe to pity them?

I was a Windows user for many years and decided to check out a Mac just to see why people love them though I didn`t really think there would be much of a difference. But now I prefer Mac so..."

Cool story, bro.

Wow, sjaak. Thank you so much for explaining that to me. I thought for sure the egg had everything to do with the name of the folder and nothing to do with the duotrigesimal code after it.

Not only did opening it make my Windows crash, just clicking on it so I could try to delete it would make it crash. Finally managed to drag it into the recycle bin. Stupid 62-bit Vista.

Macs are ludicrously queer, the only thing they`re really good for is pissing people off and getting used as hammers.

And GodMode really is just a n00b friendly settings place. you could do everything in there without having it. (basically it just makes things a tick easier)

nice. Since the new control panel is so limited unless you hack it to be a list under the start menu, this is nice to have. Thanks for the heads up.

Anyone aware if this works when I use Windows 7 through Bootcamp on a Mac? I would assume it does, but I don`t want to screw around too much.

Sweet, that`s pretty much what I`ve been looking for!
I like W7, it`s just that it`s lacks a complete view of all controls. Now it doesn`t.

Macs need to start by having eject buttons on all their computers, then they can start to building up to something more divine.

... seriously only an idiot would design a computer that relies on the operating system to eject a CD. Your argument is invalid.

The GodMode is quite useful since every control option is in one spot. Aside from that it is nothing special really.
