Beginners Guide: How To Install / Remove an Intel Socket LGA2011 CPU

Windows 8 to Include Software Management System? - PCstats.com Windows 8 to Include Software Management System?
Mon, April 20 2009 | 12:03PM | PermaLink Feedback?
In the Release Candidate for Windows 7 you'll notice the "Windows Features" section, where you can turn features on and off, has grown substantially. As with previous versions of Windows, if a feature is not selected, it is not available for use. This means the files (binaries and data) are not loaded by the operating system (for security-conscious customers) and not available to users on the computer. These same files are staged so that the features can easily be added back to the running OS without additional media. I think this is a great move by Microsoft and it shows that they are moving more towards how open source Operating Systems work. Linux distributions for example come with some pre-installed applications and users are able to add or remove as they wish - allowing them to completely alter what is on the system down all the way down to the kernel. Of course, I don't expect to see Microsoft move to this granular of an approach to software management but I do see them moving more towards a "Package System" like in Linux.
