Sure! You a star now ;)

Hmmm... This magazine DOES get exported to the gulf, Australia & a few western countries as well. Probably some big bookstore in your city has this on sale. :)

But if you don't manage to get hold of the printed magazine, here's the online archive of the same:

1. Go to - http://pcquest.com/archive/listArchive.asp?mode=seek

2. Select September 2005.

3. Click this article - Pack Power into Windows - Sanjay Majumder

If you want direct link to article - http://pcquest.com/content/search/showarti...74697&mode=disp

(it will be PUBLICLY readable after 45 days of publication - they do this so that paid subscribers get an exclusive service)

If you would like, then I can post photos of the magazine cover & the page where this review appears, etc.

This is only a quick photo of the pages. I might post a high-resolution scan later...

You might like to save & store them somewhere, cuz the above link may not always be up.

In the article above (pic #2) - the top 2 screenshots are of the program.

The bottom 2 screenshots are of the multi-boot menu, running within Virtual PC.

btw, PC Quest is a magazine which has been around since 23 years. Almost everyone who works in the IT field in this country, recognises it. They claim to have around a lakh subscribers, and readership/circulation figures is well around the 1 million mark.

Yeah I noticed that. :(

Is Direct Hit the highest rating? :)

No, "direct hit" is not a rating!

Its a quick summary of the article, with all the important details in a few lines. Its made for people who want to read all articles quickly - they can see the "direct hit" box, & decide if the review is about something they are interested in, or not. :)

That way, they need not read the whole page to know what its about, & can read only the articles they are interested in, to save time.

OH ok. ;) That sounds logical. I still haven't been able to get a copy of the mag. :(

I tried to order it... but I was sent the october issue instead. :(

lol, you'd think if you wrote to them saying "Hi, you reviewed my program in your magazine. Can I please get a copy of that issue?" that they'd oblige you.

Well... I got a copy of the PC Utilities Magazine. :D Looks really good! Only flaw in it is that it says that you need to download the driverpack files and extract them with 7zip... which is a no no. Other then that... it is a full page review and it is a very good review as well.

Any other magazines you guys have seen it in??? :thumbup
