Windows 7: Windows 7: The New XP?

I've been telling this since before Windows 7 came out. Just as XP, it is a rock-solid products that many people grew to like a lot. Even the performance improvements of 8 won't budge a lot of people to upgrade, not when there is such a big hatred towards MetroUI.

Yea, I saw that video. That man is more skilled than a lot and he couldn't find his way around. The Release Preview isn't any better than the Consumer Preview was about that. Oh well, I will just stick with Windows 7 and I will be happy. There is no point in complaining about Windows 8 anymore. It is just plain bad and we will just need to downgrade to Windows 7 and be happy.

Well I can't say I took more than 30 seconds to figure out how to get Metro back. Thing was I didn't want it back anyway.

This box was built for Windows 7 and that's what shall remain on it.

Note to Microsoft: Take something from Marshall McLuhan's metaphor, the medium is the message, as your starting point. A PC is something different from a phone, tablet, etc. Get it?

At this point I have this so called wishful thinking that Microsoft should just take the Apple way and build a completely new OS from scratch that has nothing to do with Windows and make it so easy and cool that it blows the whole IT world in shock...

Like I said, wishful thinking xD

Oh goodie!! I've been waiting 10 years for this mis-quote so I could correct it:

The Medium Is the Massage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heh heh. Just kidding.
A friend of mine took media in junior college. Every time I said "the media is the message" he corrected me. I asked, "Man! What kind of kinky stuff they teaching you in that school?"

Well i tryed Win 8 nd actually i really liked it but then got frustated of 3 4 system crashes (no succesful recovery any time). This happend on CP and RP, so i got back. As for the perfomance itself, it s much faster in my opinion, uses less resources nd doesn t ave conflicts but it s def not stable.

If you re looking for an encrypted system then just stick with 7.

Two caveats on all of these musings; first, Windows 8 is designed primarily with touch screens in mind. The necessary compromises to accommodate both touch screen devices and basic PC's make it by definition, a kludgy system.

Second, the vast majority of those buying computer devices are not like us, they never worry about what's under the hood, or how they can make it go faster, or all of the other things we hackers do as we play with and modify our computers. The vast majority of the market like EASY. Metro appears to be that more than anything else.

They definitely need to go with two different, but easily transitional OSes.

So now you don't just get a message, but a massage to boot. And all through one and the same medium. There very well could be a little more to the message.
