Trust them, that is another matter... I'm referring to their technology which is not half as bad as many people seem to think. Yes they're monopolists, are they not all ? Or aspiring to be ? They do, at last, make a honest effort to listen to their users. I still prefer the Microsoft monopoly to the anarchy of Linux, of which there are at least 3 or 4 dozen different versions, and where you have to rely on some happy hacker to fix your problem.


Linux was never really meant for the ordinary user. However, Ubuntu is a step in the right direction on that front.

Mac OS X is the better operating system for the ordinary user for several reasons. Primarily, it has a nice interface. And under the surface it is BSD Unix. And Unix >>>> Windows any day of the week. :wink:

I've been meaning to ask a question for about the past five years but kept forgetting: When you all click on a PS file, does it open in Quicktime? It does for me (unless I'm doing admin business and have to 'save file' the recording). Is it possible to change this so that another program opens? All my other stuff opens in Windows Media Player and I wish the PS recordings did as well.

The reason I'm asking this now is that when I click on PS recordings, Quicktime opens but all I get is a black skinny rectangle - there is no stop/play/pause button. Here is a screenshot of what I see:

You can probably change the default somewhere. Sorry, I have little more than passing familiarity with Win7 so I can't help with specifics.

PS files open in the Quicktime browser plugin for me.

It is your browser configuration that decides how to play mp3 and other files. Quicktime is default in Mozilla and I like that because it doesn't wait for the file to be downloaded, it starts playing right away. Not sure why this is broken for you, you could try to re-install the Quicktime plugin.
But it's easy to change. Click Tools->Options->Applications, and look up MPEG Layer 3 (mp3). In the right column it says 'Quicktime plugin'. Click on the arrow next to that, choose 'Other' and select Windows Media Player.

Ok thanks. I like that Quicktime opens right away too, but I don't like that I see no duration time, and now I don't like that I can't see anything at all. I'll try fooling around with those options now.
