Just Cause 2 Demo

Steam now offers the promised playable demo for Just Cause 2, the action sequel from Avalanche Studios. (thanks Derek). Here's word on the demo, which requires DirectX 10:
The Just Cause 2 demo features a massive 35 square miles of the Lautan Lama Desert, a vast expanse of stunning, sun-scorched scenery taking up just one of the many islands in the 400 square miles of the Panau archipelago. Packed with towns, villages, military installations, mountain ranges, missions and more, the demo will feature an astonishing amount of activities for the player... and opportunities for adrenaline-fuelled chaos are limitless.

Hunt down and assassinate one of the game’s 50 military colonels; devastate military bases, bio fuel chambers, government infrastructure and more; hijack tuk tuks, military 4x4s, armoured vehicles, mopeds, helicopter gunships, light aircraft, mini vans and numerous other military and civilian vehicles; freefall from desert outcrops or from burning planes at 20,000 feet; and unlock one full, multi-stage mission, traversing the mountains to a heavily fortified government radar station and ending in an unforgettable desert car chase.

"The Just Cause 2 demo is simply massive and with so much to do, the replay value is enormous," said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. "It’s easily one of the biggest freeroaming demos of all time and for fans of openworld games, it’s unmissable."

I've found that ever since Windows 2000, each new version of Windows has fewer annoyances (than its immediate predecessor) to disable after the initial installation.

Really? I feel the exact opposite way. Vista and Windows 7 piled on all the worthless security checks.

"Do you want to run this file?"
"Are you really sure?"
"Okay, just double-checking... you want to delete this right?"
"Hah! Just kidding. I know you want to run the file, not delete it, but I'm going to ask you anyway when you do want to delete anything so might as well get it out of the way now."
"Sorry, you can't run or delete this because you don't have the correct administrator privileges."
Yes really. Windows 2000 has the stupid internet connection wizard, stupid default My Computer / Explorer settings (things like hiding file extensions), the "welcome to Windows" tour thing, and a few other things I'm forgetting. Windows XP has the stupid Desktop Cleanup Wizard, the annoying language bar (I know it's useful for some people, but most of us will never use it), a pointless Windows tour, and the same stupid default Explorer settings as 2000. Vista has UAC and a few stupid default My Computer Explorer settings (but far less than 2000/XP, as I recall). Windows 7 has a few stupid Explorer settings IIRC, but less than previous OSes. Win7 UAC could actually be left on without too much annoyance, but I choose to turn it off.

One Vista / Windows 7 improvement I forgot is the vastly improved file transfer dialog. Finally we get some useful information when we're copying or moving files. I also find the Add/Remove programs applet to be much improved. Being able to use the installed programs list while something is uninstalling is something I've wanted to be able to do for years. Maybe with Windows 8 we'll finally get to uninstall more than one program at a time.

And don't even get me started on how monumentally stupid Windows Update was pre-Vista. Yeah, all this stuff should have been fixed years ago, but I'm just glad to have it now.
