  1. @bernard: Thanks. I actually hid a few and Photoshopped some out for that screenshot. Can’t live without Firebug, Gmail notifier, Google Browser Sync, IE Tab, Net Usage Item, Web Developer.

  2. Firebug, IE Tab and Web Developer rock! They make webdevelopment so much easier!

  3. You really must be in love! ;P But why not wait till the SP1 is out? What will you send Mr. Windows if the ReadyBoost bug wouldn’t be fixed?

  4. …oh and for me its the DownloadStatusbar and the Delicious plugin I can’t live without.

  5. I just got the following from them *see below . I think that’s amazing news.. imagine if they did everything in that list. I hope the “fix” refered too is SP1 . It would go a long way in restoring Vista’s rep imho. (anyway -even for next version it’s good news none the less)

  6. lol Jamie, I thought you weren’t supposed to post that anywhere. πŸ˜›

    And, why’d that thread only get locked and not deleted?

  7. i didnt post this here.. i put it on channel9 and have since removed it.

    that’s not “me” above

  8. he was NOT supposed to post it. Aeroxp was asked to remove that list. it would be a good idea for Long to delete it as well.

    On to regular business though: Long might have as well not scrubbed out the email addy. Its not hard to come up with microsoft emplyoee email addys. πŸ˜‰
