Which raise an interesting topic for another thread maybe. Will Windows 7 be a machine breaker, or was Vista intended to take the bad press for this, and, what are we doing to set up to run Windows 7

I believe Vista was the guinea pig ... to put it nicely!

They had to start somewhere; Vista was the first installment of "Windows Seven" there may be more!

They have been discussing a "subscription OS" since before the realease of XP.
I'm sorry I don't have a link to the article on hand; I just read it the other day.

Was this the one you meant??

When Windows 7 launches sometime after the start of 2010, the desktop OS will be Microsoft's most "modular" yet. Having never really been comfortable with the idea of a single, monolithic desktop OS offering, Microsoft has offered multiple desktop OSes in the marketplace ever since the days of Windows NT 3.1, with completely different code bases until they were unified in Windows 2000. Unification isn't necessarily a good thing, however; Windows Vista is a sprawling, complex OS.

A singular yet highly modular OS could give Microsoft the best of all possible worlds: OSes that can be highly customized for deployment but developed monolithically. One modular OS to rule them all, let's say.


Evidence mounting: Windows 7 going modular, subscription

Love the Avatar Mate. Just how I imagined you'd look.
