Windows 7: Windows 8 Will Be the Beginning of the End for 7

To me it's a way of getting business and corporations off of XP-PRO. XP-PRO is slowing down sales of new operating systems. XP is also slowing down hardware and software sales.

One thing that saw notice right off with 7 especially the 32bit flavor was it's backward support for games and other things that wouldn't run on the 32bit Vista being intended for XP or Legacy to XP. Even when the compatibility failed with the previous version 7 took on the challenge and -passed!

As for OEM manufacturers not providing ready support for Vista driver wise? One large grip years back was seen with 98 and the lack there of immediate driver support for those upgrading from 3.1, 3.11, 95 systems. It's nothing new but proved to be another setback for the then new larger version as far as Vista was concerned actually waiting until just before the 7 betas were out to finally see device drivers for Vista!

With 7 at least beta version driver sets have been available prior to the release date. MS pushed a little more for this since the "lack of" was seen too often with the previous versions on and off at times.

New software upgrades or new releases every 2 - 3 years are good as long as they support their prier release for at least 4 to 6 years... GL

Can you be more specific about what you do not understand? I could go on for a couple paragraphs and not clarify what you are having trouble with at all.

Welcome to SF! 775 Mike

What will be in W8 is what will be learned once actual facts about the next version are out! Anything now would be merely something to stuff a blog page with and nothing direct from MS this early.

It will be have to be something spectacular I can imagine due to the immediate liking to 7 seen widespread however! As you can see 7 won hearts over big time!

That much is true. It brought a lot of XP stalwarts and Vista haters to upgrade.

Surprizingly not all are Vista haters as some who have been running Vista since it's release were reluctant but now looking into 7! The driving force however is still the ""good word on 7" seen todate over what has been often negative reactions to any new version in the past besides Vista or ME.

Some many years back when first taking a look at 98SE I thought that the "bloated and slow" OS at the time until actually running it for 5yrs.! The initial reaction to XP took some time for people accustomed to Legacy versions and unacquainted with NTFS at first. Some skipped over XP entirely from 2000 to Vista and didn't mind one bit.

The new version plus the new hardwares and trend towards the 64bit Windows now that the support is finally being seen is another factor for the look at 7 too. Well it is the latest right when many are looking for that new edge as well as the large ad promotion!
