i cant say what will become of vista - but i applaud the delay.
from my standpoint, win xp pro is quite good, and id rather them take their time with vista as opposed to rushing it out the door.

Oh, I'd also like to point out that JC is right in so many ways.  I'd also like to point out (more importantly) that JC may indeed be in breech of the DCMA so guilty until proven innocent applies.  Let the converging swat teams be a lesson to us alll.  :D
It still isn't going to make me pay my Bitsum maintence, dammit.  Well, ok, maybe later  ;)

What? I'm in breach of the DCMA? You mean with that reversing of sysinternal's nt eval tool so long ago?

Yes.  Waiting so long for PEBundle 4.0 has made me delirious.  :P

Mark's Sysinternals Blog

Tools remains free.

Mark talks about his first week at M$:
(sounds like to be a big company, thoose M$? Meeting, meeting, no eMail address...)

Quote from: Mark
Monday, July 31, 2006
...I’m pleased to report that Microsoft’s number one priority is not only keeping
the tools freely available, but preserving the Sysinternals community including the newsletter,
the forums, and my blog. While we’re still brainstorming how to make this successful in the
long term, I’m pleased to announce the first step in the transition, which is the introduction of
 a new Sysinternals EULA, that I believe is even more permissive than the EULA in place
before the Microsoft acquisition, since it allows for wider use of Sysinternals utilities within a
company.
...

Quote from: Mark
One of the most frustrating aspects of the first week is that I still have no working Microsoft email account.
Quote from: Mark
Probably of most importance, however, is the outcome of the various meetings

Quote from: PC-Welt
Nach Microsoft-Übernahme: Sysinternals-Tools bleiben gratisGute Nachricht aus Redmond: Auch nach der Übernahme von Winternals/Sysinternals durch Microsoft werden auch weiterhin alle praktischen Windows-Tools von Sysinternals gratis zum Download angeboten werden. Nach der Übernahme von Winternals/ Sysinternals durch Microsoft ( wir berichteten ) hatten viele Anwender im Internet die Befürchtung geäußert, dass die beliebten kostenlosen Sysinternals-Tools, wie beispielsweise der Process Explorer und Filemon , künftig nicht mehr zum Download angeboten würden. In seinem Blog gibt Mark Russinovich Entwarnung .

Laut Angaben von Russinovich ist Microsoft vollkommen damit einverstanden, dass alle bisher gratis zum Download angebotenen Sysinternals-Tools weiterhin der Internet-Gemeinde erhalten bleiben. Außerdem unterstütze Microsoft das Vorhaben, die Sysinternals-Community zu unterstützen und auszubauen. Microsoft sei sogar daran interessiert, bei der Verbreitung der Tools mitzuhelfen. So sei geplant, alle Tools von Sysinternals künftig zusätzlich auch über Microsofts Download-Service allen Anwendern zum Herunterladen anzubieten. Das böte die Möglichkeit, so Russinovich, die Download-Kapazitäten zu erhöhen. "Ich und Microsoft glauben, dass dies Microsofts Verpflichtung demonstriert, die Tools weiterhin kostenlos verfügbar zu halten", so Russinovich. Für alle Sysinternals-Tools wird auch künftig die Sysinternals-EULA gelten.

I'm still skeptic... it's not like Microsoft haven't ever changed their minds about stuff.
