Windows 7 Will Never Outshine Vista
Posted 11 May 2009 - 01:36 PM
There were HUGE architectural changes in Vista, not just features. For example, what they did with networking. The entire networking stack was re-written from the ground up...
And btw, in case you didn't get the memo, Windows 7 rocks. Everyone loves it.
Like I said, idiotic fail. Matt Egan shouldn't have a job. Seriously, how can PC World have such a huge penguin lover on staff?

Lets see, 1st the examples suck. ("In late 2006, you'd hardly choose a laptop to replace a desktop PC. For an OS, Microsoft was the only real option.") Not true at all.
("Fast forward to 2009, and you choose hard- and software according to need. Want a cheap, portable workstation? Linux netbook it is.") I love Linux OS but this is also not true. In 2006, you could also buy a cheap Linux netbook.
And as said above, everyone agrees Windows 7 rocks.

Keep in mind that Win7 is an upgrade of Vista - it builds on it. They aren't throwing anything away.
Amazing how opinion gets tagged as "analysis". Idiotic fail. Headline sluttery. Both true.

Let's see, I've tried Windows 7 RC1, and the splash screen is corrupted, whereas the splash screen with the Beta was fine. It seems MS has more work to do in regard to nVidia graphic card compatibility - which WinXP has no problem with, nor does practically every distro of Linux.
To get my work done in a timely fashion, I will stick to WinXP Pro.

What makes a PC Advisor"- Someone who has never held an IT Job in a corporation, must hate MS for no reason, must never look up propaganda, just take it as truth because someone told you it some where.
I'm sure I missed some other criteria, but that about covers it.
Is someone's kid allowed to be an "editor" or "PC Advisor". Journalism is dead and apparently rolling in its grave concerning IT journalism!

I never could quite figure out why people can't get Vista to work. I use the 64 bit version of Business and it never crashes, everything runs smooth and it's easy to use. Oh I forgot, some of you Vista users are stuck in the XP world, can't quite cut your embilical cords can ya? LOL funny how people could'nt figure out how to install Vista on a good machine. Tsk Tsk :P I blame laziness...either that or you're a paid Apple employee dissin Vista :P

I have not had a problem with Vista... I've used it very well for some time. XP was good, but Vista is better, and it's not MS's fault that the 3rd party industry didn't ramp up their drivers for Vista.
I don't need to update just because there is an update, but Win7 will be a landslide adoption after the technophobe XP'ers finally see how well it work on their friends new systems. Business will do what cash-flow-is-king dictates... like sensationalism-is-king writers.
Win7 already shines bright... because it's not saddled with a 3rd party cloud. But the waters are roiling... however, linux isn't ready for 'the masses', and Apple remains Apple, pretty good, very proprietary... and so still in their niche.
Saying Win 7 can't do well, because Vista was so bad, and so bad it gives rise to others... is out of touch with reality. But the times they could be a-changin'.

Even if it's amazing (my opinion is its worthy of an upgrade) if the people of the world still hate redmond for giving 'em Vista (whether it ran well for them or not) its sales will lag, maybe years.
I think it's interesting that though so many people are supposedly going to switch to Linux PCs and Macs, you hear few developers saying so. And if devs stay with Windows, I would place my bet on the people largely staying too. Even if the OS market evens out to give the little guys more than a whopping 40%.
VMs aside, if grandma can't hear her computer say "You've got mail," she ain't upgradin.
