That would also apply to most consumers as well. With the economy the way it is you'd be surprised at how many people/businesses are perfectly content with windows XP. Word of mouth more than any ad campaign will be the biggest seller of windows 7 for Microsoft.
They have (almost) annual Servicepacks. Unlike Apple, MS provides them for free.
I don't think n one year there would be so much improvement jsutifying the users to changes and reisntall everything. And who would buy a new OS every year?
and the 3rd party software, drivers... if it changed every year, then we had trouble! and some chnages are sso dramatic that they need more development. Like new Kernel etc.

Windows 7

Can we all just assume that the original poster is a troll?

I find that the Intarweb is easier to stomach if you just assume everyone else is an anencephalic mongoloid. That way, when people say something bright you are pleasantly surprised.

I agree the question awas a bit useless... but many questions are useless. We should have a policy of " there are no stupid questions". I think I asked some questions I could have answered myself or were just uninformed.

I think we are trolls as well since we keep responding which brings the thread up al the time

I would guess the same thing. They've had a lot of pressure on them to make Windows 7 "right", which I believe they've done. So they will be able to afford to take it easy with the development of Windows 8 really.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi all
I might have retired by then (finally) so my only use for a computer might be to play DVD's or listen to the Radio via the Internet.

In any case the whole way we currently use computers is rapidly changing so who even knows or cares what Windows 8 will bring.

W7 will probably be the last "Classic" type of OS release in any case.
