Microsoft has poured millions of person-hours into Windows Vista. Guess what: A
few hours of your own time could make it a whole lot better -- more convenient,
more efficient, faster, more secure, and less frustrating. Steve Sinchak proves
that in Hacking Windows Vista.
Sinchak has earned Microsoft's elite MVP designation and hosts the hugely
popular TweakVista.com. His previous book, Hacking Windows XP, quickly became
the No. 1 book ever released in the ExtremeTech series, and it deserved the
plaudits it received. Here, he's gone back to the drawing board, returning with
an enormous collection of great ideas for Vista power users.
Take, for instance, his comprehensive coverage of understanding system
performance and then improving it. (Typically, without spending a dime. But even
those rare techniques which aren't free are still quite cheap -- such as giving
Windows more memory via a ReadyBoost-compliant USB key). There's a full chapter
on speeding up system boot (Vista's Boot Manager gives you 30 seconds to choose
an operating system before it loads Vista, but what if you always choose Vista?)
Oh, and do you really need to load all those programs in your startup folder,
including that maddening RealPlayer Message Center? We highly doubt it.)
But performance is just one area Sinchak focuses on. He reveals great interface
customizations for new Vista features like Aero Glass and Windows Sidebar; shows
how to change your right-click Send To menu; even walks you through creating
multiple home pages in IE7 (when you open your browser, each page opens in a
separate tab.) He walks you through everything from customizing Windows Media
with virtual surround sound to improving your system's privacy. This is one
Vista book that'll keep paying dividends for years to come.
