Um no... that is not right at all.

Windows seven is "7" years of development as it is just Vista + 2 more years. It makes perfect sense.

And Vista was not horrible at all, that is a load of bull crap.

hehehe... umm. no. it was, especially when first released. Hardware compatability issues, and lets not begin to speak about application compatible issues.... which took forever to fix.... and when MS didnt fix alot of those issues, alot of "hardcore" users (especially gaming community) that didnt turn to or werent *nix, stuck with XP..... /me raises his hand

this is why the hopeful "vista experience" bombed around the "community". I think that MS rushed Vista becuase of the compromise of the wpa in XP, and tried to "redo" it in Vista, and that took the focus off the actual works of the OS. After that wpa was figured, i think MS finally kinda gave up and are now and have been in the past 2 years trying to fix what they didnt in the Longhorn stages... which has bled over to the creation of 7. Tis why i keep preaching about hoping they take their time with this OS THIS TIME... by observations thus far, they have been on a good track, but still with some improvements to go.

Besides, I quoted horrible because it worked for me, but I didn't know they were making 2 OS' at the same time and I thought Windows 7 meant 7.0 because Vista was 6.1 or something like that.

Sure. Think about server editions, MS Home Server... and really you could even throw in the office programs as far as development chain, and backwards compatability. Remember a little known OS call ME. Ppl didnt upgrade or use that unless they bought a pc with it pre-installed, and even then, some of those ppl chose to format and reinstall 98 or win2k. Then this whisper of a new OS came out called whistler. On the heels of whistler was this strange creature called Longhorn(a very hungry beast, not a mountain range), dual and triple booting... thus the story continues...? history repeating? you be the judge?

So Windows XP was ME, Vista was Whistler, and 7 is Longhorn? IDK, but I didn't know is all.

You are the first, and hopefully the last person that I have ever seen compare XP and ME. For those who actually used ME, and reverted back to 98 2nd edition, would never put ME and XP in the same sentence. XP is NT

Vista gave problems to those who didn't have the hardware. I built a new system (same exact one I have now) to specifically run Vista, and I have had no issues. x64 version on top of that.

No. but one could say that ME was "98ish" and XP was ME + win2k with a skin.

7 has flavors of everything Longhorn(ideas that were dropped) +XP (funtionality and stability) + Vista (eyecandy IMO) and a dash of 2k3 and 2k8 server

The speed comes from the hardware then. BTW, I just had a problem and posted another topic about it called "Burning the disk" and if you please, check that out, and I will hope for the best.

I would say that XP is Win2k with broader compatibility. And if you had to add an OS, I would have said 98 2nd ED.

ME, was a sloppy release. ME wouldn't have existed if they could have united the NT tech, with the customer Windows platform quicker.

Who Cares I'm priceing out hardware for and OCT 09 buy. Come on 7!!!
