Microsoft's Horrible Windows 7 Dilemma


Sponsored Links
298w ago - It's not a Windows Vista killer - Windows Vista fulfils that role quite well enough, thank you. But it's hard to know how excited Microsoft itself is about Windows 7.

Show it too much love, and it's effectively agreeing with everyone who hates Vista - and sometimes it feels like that really is everyone.

So Microsoft is keeping Windows 7 at a distance, and not saying that much about it at all - or perhaps just enough to stop its users going on and on about how much they love Windows XP.

A nice counterpoint is Apple, which actually does get excited about new versions of its Mac OS X operating system - or as excited as a cold, controlling organisation run by one cool man can be.

Obviously, Apple's manic users go way over the top in their pant-wetting love of Jaguar, Tiger, Leopard, et al - tatooing System Preference icons on their faces, endlessly rolling their cursor along the Dock with Magnification set on Maximum, leaving their screens on all night so they fall asleep under the warm glow of a Time Machine backup.

OK, so when you enter a command prompt, why is it showing version 6.1.7000 instead of 7.x? Is this just a GUI patch to Vista like the XP (5.1) patch to Win 2000 (5.0)?

Good news is; it boots and shuts down faster than XP on the same hardware with similar spec anti virus and install... in my brief testing at least.

My personal opinion when i tried Win 7: That is the version of Vista we wanted to have. Some good improvements, faster, not the best but ok to work with after Win XP.
