2nd Favorite Windows Feature


February 18, 2008 08:51 PM PST

My top windows feature is well known to be remote desktop and has been since XP came out. For this spot there is no competition. The number two spot however has changed from time to time. This week I'd have to say the position goes to System Restore. System Restore has saved my bacon more times than I can count. This week equals count + 1. When in the course of extreme machine hacking, you break something big time, it's nice to know you can just roll back to the last known good configuration. Sometimes I wish my life had a feature like that.

What were you hacking on that Windows didn't (or couldn't) protect itself?

Actually that is a very good question. Normally Windows is pretty good about protecting itself. In this case I'm working on a very non-standard piece of hardware and it's not too happy with the drivers I'm forcing it to use.
