Which one is right for you?

It appears that Microsoft has for the first time actually put their own Operating Systems against each other in a comparison to see which version of Windows is right for you...

Makes sense from a marketing point of view. Gotta generate a buzz to excite new sales.

Reminds me of the "NEW AND IMPROVED" label on my favorite laundry soap - wouldn't be using it if it weren't.

There's no entry for which one is easier to install to,
and boot from,
a USB device.

In that case, I have to stay with XP...

Hi there


Why is it these types of comparisons whilst possibly not incorrect but are TOTALLY MISLEADING.

I'm not advocating XP over Windows 7 for example but It's perfectly possible to EASILY stream video and audio around your house on XP.

Audio -- look at this

Logitech Squeezebox Duet | Network media streamers | Reviews | PC Pro


Video -- look at this

Slingbox - How to use Slingbox in the UK

Also loads of other possibilities.

I would suggest that almost NOBODY in the entire known universe uses built in Windows base product for their media streaming apps without adding 3rd party apps / hardware.

Most of these "comparison" features are usually just misleading sales spiel.

Of course things like "Desktop experience" etc are good in Windows 7 - but that's usually a matter of taste

I actually don't really like AERO that much and used to have some pretty good themes on XP so even that piece of info in the list isn't really correct either.

I'm not knocking Windows 7 -- but just against "Stupid and misleading Sales spiel). - And don't lets even flog that old dead horse up again on the"Classic menu" which zillions still prefer. - I for one don't like having a HUGE menu on a 28 inch monitor with a load of rubbish stuff on the RIGHT HAND SIDE which I either can't remove or change to programs I want. I don't need MISIC / DOCUMENT etc on the RIGHT hand side.

(Also XP has a decent 4 virtual desktop facility msvdn from "powertoys" -- it's a bit of a bodge to get this COMPLETE functionality in in Windows 7 - the one in sysinternals doesn't quite have the same functionality as the XP one).

So read these things with care.

Cheers
jimbo

Makes no sense to me. Why confuse the customer with 3 OS? I thought MS would be happy to leave the past behind and only concentrate on Windows 7...

edit @jimbo45 of course you can do all that with XP, but not out of the box. You should not take yourself (experienced user) as target audience of this simple comparison by MS

Windows 7 cos it nice feature as I like the jump list and Aero peek that make me very easy to use also nice look taskbar you can pin up any software instead of putting on desktop icon. when you open web browser it has nice look glasser on top and bottom (I used the frost colour which look like glass).
