Windows Vista to include self healing

http://www.heraldsun.news.com.au/com...E11869,00.html

MICROSOFT will include a self-healing mechanism in its next version of Windows that will warn users when one of the disk drives is about to fail and recommend remedies.

The details were presented in the company's latest release of preliminary test versions of its next generation Windows Vista operating system which was distributed to some 500,000 people.
Vista is scheduled to go on sale in about a year.

"One of things we're trying to do is make sure that PCs are able to fix themselves in a way that they haven't been able to in the past," said Mike Burk, a Microsoft product manager for Windows Vista.

Other features that were revealed in the beta version were the inclusion of Microsoft's anti-spyware technology into the Windows system and the release of Windows Media Player 11, the company's next generation digital media console.

There will also be an improved internet browser to better contend with challenges from the open source rival Firefox, a "Network Centre" that acts as a central spot for managing network connections, and tools for authoring and digitally signing documents.

No matter how hot she is, someone, somewhere, is sick of her shit....
