Windows 7: Windows 7 wasn't your idea

Windows 7 wasn't your idea

Is there any truth to all the ads for win7 with the concept of the OS being his or her idea? If there is then i have no problem with them but i find it hard to believe that the new features and such that have made windows 7 a success came from average people. I know what Microsoft is trying to do with the ad campaign but i find it a little hard to swallow.

Interested in some land I have in Florida? Just kidding. I'm sure they had their developers do some kinda regular joe inquiry's.

They talk to people, have group meetings to get ideas. Then they choose the best. So in reality everyone who made a suggestion that is now part of the OS, thinks its their idea.

I would say it is almost true....

They did the Public Beta test in January of 2009, and a lot of testers and I mean a lot.. of people went and downloaded the Windows 7 beta, (I was one them) and they (Microsoft) encouraged Feedback..and they received a lot of it..

So when they talk about that it was my idea, They are talking about how Microsoft let the average person try out Windows 7 which I thought was a great idea..and I do hope they continue to do the same thing with the next release of the Windows Operating System.

Pishaa,,,, I think the Alfa-Centari's might have a law suite lined up here soon against M$ for the blatant stealing of the Beta Fish Background in the Beta Windows Starter Edition.

And that was my idea
