no i just assumed you'd know what i meant Antman has a device installed in my house he always sees what i do.

And the issue hasn' t popped up because in 7 it is finally possible. Which is the overwhelming reason why i use 7.

Could you explain what you meant with this?
I wrote administrative and technical multi-user apps for Concurrent Dos.

You could run 4 tasks concurrently on a serial terminal, and you could hook up 16 terminals. at 38400 baud it ran quit well. I replaced many a AS400 with it.

Sure, it was commandline only. But you could access the vestiges of internet (compuserve and such), you could do wordprocessing etc.

The biggest installation with CDOS i ever build was for a company that converted medieval records to microfiche. It was a sole 80386 compaq with 32 terminals, which ran realtime the scanning camera and kept the database for the microfiches. These were stick to a punchcard and that also was run by the system.

The admin could take over any screen, it kept the financial records and personel records.

Started with 286 myself, but I was curious what you meant with "same thing, just prettier" ?

I prefer Win7, It looks fantastic which XP doesn't. I know about the themes you can download for XP to look like seven, just one problem with those...it doesn't look like seven! They can't replicate the Aero Peek and Jump List to the even near seven standard. I like the performance of seven, I would give that 8/10. I like the networking improvements like homegroup over the million complicated dialog boxes of XP. I hate the shutdown time of XP, that is a deal breaker on its own. What I don't like about seven? That it uses a flawed kernal which is 7 years old even though it's "optimised".

Why flawed? Because the battery life compared to having Mac OS X is terrible. The stupid registry is kept in seven which I wasn't happy about...

I also hate the stupid boring icons that Microsoft didn't bother to replace, or the sound scheme eg. start-up and shut-down which gives me reminds me of Vista!

Conclusion:

I would give Win7 8/10 for PC's, but only 7/10 for laptops. I think if Microsoft did release it in Jan 2010, they may have changed the sound scheme and folder icons...let's hope the service packs do.

that i could do the same thing in CDOS better and more efficient then in Windows 7 the only the W7 GUI is prettier (and a resource hog.)

Don't get me wrong, i'll continue using 7 but only because it's free. If i had to pay i'd skip it.
That is what the OP made it...except the thread in itself is an invalid argument due to the nature of the argument. Had he posted this a few years down the road? I would argue further but it is of little worth as it stands right now

Indeed it did...I would have loved to debate this down the road when valid rebuttals and points could be made in comparisons
