Windows Phone 8 review

It's been eight days since Microsoft launched Windows Phone 8 and eight days since I started using an HTC 8X, which has the new software installed, as my main cellphone. So far, I'm impressed with Microsoft's new platform.

WinZip 17 review

It's not easy being WinZip these days. Windows has been able to open and create Zip files on its own for a while now, and free, powerful compression utilities like 7-Zip are readily available and actively maintained. And yet, the 20 year-old utility soldiers on with version 17, delivering impressive utility and showing a keen awareness of the rapidly evolving cloud storage and file sharing landscape. New integration with cloud storage services and social networks gives WinZip a firm foothold in the online world. It's available in $50 Pro and $30 Standard versions, each with a twenty-one-day free trial.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 review

Visual Studio is no longer simply an IDE, no longer a place you go just to write and debug C/C++ code. It has long since become something of a development mashup. It's where you go to tackle any task in the development process, regardless of the target. It's where you head to do your LightSwitch development, your SQL Server development, your Web application development, your Windows Azure development, and your ASP.Net or Windows Forms development in C#, F#, VB.Net, and -- oh, yes -- good old Visual C++. Naturally, it's where you build applications for http://www.infoworld.com/category/tags/microsoft-windows-azure and Windows RT.

Windows 8: The official review

Reviewing an operating system is an odd endeavour, because people don't really use operating systems; they use applications. The idea of a single-platform operating system is less relevant now than it was just a few years ago. These days we have "ecosystems" Microsoft, Apple, or Google, take your pick.

Review: Microsoft targets virtualisation with Windows 8/Windows Server 2012 combo

Much of the attention being paid to this week's Windows 8 launch focuses on the new Metro-style interface and the fact that Microsoft is extending its desktop OS to tablets and smartphones. But for enterprises, the real story is the way Microsoft has integrated Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and the Hyper-V hypervisor to create an unmatched system for running virtualised environments.

Firefox for Windows 8 review

Firefox for Windows 8 is in effect two web browsers: the desktop version that looks and feels much the same as your current Firefox, and a new Modern UI Windows app designed for Windows 8's tablet-friendly interface. They are of course the same program, but separated by the somewhat schizophrenic nature of Windows 8 (on PCs and laptops at least).

Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate review

Just two months after Corel's acquisition of Pinnacle Systems from Avid Technology comes the release of the latest version of Pinnacle's video-editing software, Studio 16 Ultimate ($130 as of September 4, 2012). This novice-focused application continues Pinnacle's (and its few remaining competitors') approach of packing in as many new features as possible, but it still won't satisfy everyone's needs.
