I have to admit I have never seen this show at Channel 9 until an episode popped up in my RSS feeds yesterday.

This episode was answering the question why there is no Network Activity Indicator in Windows 7 which, in fact, was a big question during Windows 7’s public beta last year.

And you know what? The answer does make some sense.

Get Microsoft Silverlight

The show is hosted by Laura Foy from Channel 9 and is described like this:

Microsoft is full of oddities and little known answers to mysterious questions. The purpose of this series is to seek out those answers and offer them to you.

You can see the other episodes and also send in your own questions by visiting the Channel 9 But Why? show website.

By the way – here is the Network Activity Indicator for Windows 7 site.
