Tweak It and Freak It : A Killer Guide to Making Windows Run Your Way
Hundreds of millions of people use Windows every day, and it's a safe bet that none of those them would describe themselves as happy Windows campers. Everybody - from the most casual dilettante to the hardcore power user has something they hate about Windows, and often have a whole laundry list of Windows gripes. "Why can't Windows do this rather than that?" "Why does Windows do X instead of Y?" "Wouldn't it be great if Windows could do Z?" Scratch the surface of any Windows user and you'll come upon a seething cauldron of unmet needs, unrequited desires, and unending frustration at being stuck with Windows the way it is.
Everyone thinks Windows is set in stone, but that apparently solid surface is really just a thin veneer that Microsoft slaps onto Windows to ensure that new and fumble-fingered users don't get into trouble. Strip off that veneer and a whole world comes into view, one that's eminently hackable, moddable, tweakable, customizable, and personalizable. Within this world lie tools and technologies that anyone can use to hack almost every aspect of Windows, from startup to shutdown, from the interface to the Internet, from security to scripting.
