Even after extensive testing of the various pre-release versions of Windows 7, I still don't know whether its virtues outweigh its pain points overall.
That guy is one lazy a$$ fool.
First: You have to spend some time and find out what version of Windows 7 to get. That's really hard, cause we don't have to make educated buying decisions like that every day. I'm so glad when I go to buy a car I just walk on to the lot and only get 1 choice, 1 price. Life is so simple. What a moron.
Second: You have to learn something new. Heaven forbid we have to learn something new.
Third: It's not necessarily faster. He goes on to quote that his creative suite applications don't seem to load any fast on his LAPTOP. I can just see him using the mouse pad to do some sort of image editing. Nobody buys Creative Suite for minor picture editing. He probably pirated it... On top of that, loading an application for the first time is heavily I/O bound. Your hard drive is just as fast no matter what OS you have on it moron.
Fourth: Microsoft is keeping XP around as a stand in. WTF, this guy is an idiot, they offered it to people so they could still use their ghetto old apps with their computer and not be forced to stick with an outdated and insecure OS forever.
Those are his four reasons that would stop someone from going to a far superior OS? Someone needs to go fubar this guy...
