Looking at it from Microsoft's perspective, they made the mistake with XP of keeping it around too long. People got way too comfortable with it and now they're in the pickle of getting people off of XP after years of being standardized on it. 7 is definitely doing decently in that department but Microsoft wants it to go to the cycle back in the 90s, which was a new OS about every 3 years.

I don't like it as in my view, Microsoft charges way too much for Windows. I think they should take the Apple model and just make one version and sell it for either $50 or $100 ... a full version. Rather than having this upgrade and full version crap with all these editions out there.

I bought Windows 7 Ultimate on October 25 of last year, Had a day long botched install until I found the tutorial section here + now I am duel booting so it is not only how well on OS performs out of the box, but how the people who use it support newcomers to ensure a satisfying experience. The members/admins/mods of SevenForums also truly contribute to the success of the Windows 7 OS.

So Happy Birthday SevenForums, It was one year ago today you opened your doors to help us folks who bought the best OS to date from Microsoft.

Actually Seven Forums started the end of June '08, that makes it 2 years and 4 months ago.

I agree Seven Forums has been helping a lot of Win7 users.

There are many reasons why end users are reluctant to deploy Windows 7. Most of which is a financial decision, and especially at the corporate level. I don't think being comfortable with XP is a significant factor in upgrading. I also don't believe that Microsoft is the big bad wolf some people make them out to be. Just my personal opinion.

As long as Windows 7 is selling like hot cakes we won't see Windows 8 coming out. Microsoft isn't going to kick the dog that is bring the money home. I think the direction they will go is getting corporations off of XP and into Windows 7or there new servers.

I think what throws most off is not realizing that XP was rushed while Vista saw several delays leaving a large gap over what had been the 2-3yr. schedule previously seen for each new version. That was the intended schedule started with 3.1 to 95 to 98 and the ME which flopped!

The flop is what resulted in MS rushing XP out to offer a new desktop version with too many bugs. Now almost a full 10yrs. old it took SP3 to turn XP into a somewhat working OS. Vista was delayed and saw it's release with lowered minimum requirements not accounting for those still running older hardwares and having limited system resources while being a more stable but "larger" version which got a bad rep.

With the previous rushed and then delayed versions W7 has proven itself to be the "out of the box" champ but may still only be the start of some type of normalcy for keeping a 2-3yr. time table. All we can do is hope that W8 will turn out to be an "improved on" succession of newer versions with 7 being the leadoff!

(I'm sure most don't want to end up seeing the following versions become "Flops"!)
