I just recently got digital cable which included a subscription to TechTV. The first things I noticed once I tuned in the channel was that every second word was Microsoft and it was extremely geared towards newbies. I wasn't suprised at all, just disappointed. I'm not technical genius but I quickly found it boring and in fact, for many moments, very annoying.

For those that subscribe to TechTV, are there any particular shows that do something other than promote MS products or that could be enjoyed by someone other than a Dave Chalk type audience? Or do you just need to play the lotto and once in a blue moon ther'll be a show for Linux users once in a while....

Cheers,
Arker!

yeah same here. TechTV is ultra boring. Shows like "The Screensavers" and "Call for help" are geared to super, ultra newbiews. I think a "Windows tip" on The Screensavers once was "To go back on a webpage in IE, right click and select back" I was like "WTF??? That was their tip of the day??"

I do like a lot of TechTV shows like "Fresh Gear" (and not just because Sumi Das is the hottest girl I've seen that actually knows her electronics gear)...and shows like "The Tech Of.." sometimes has interesting stuff. And I like "extended play" too.

Yeah, TechTV's mainstream programs are dumb (screensavers, call for help) but some of their other ones like Fresh Gear, Tech of, Cybercrime, and Tech Live are bearable. I guess... :?
