    Windows 7 should be a Fixta Free For All


    Posted: 07 Jan 2009
    Okay, never mind that I’m a dinosaur with an affinity for 1990’s era User Interfaces – I think even my best critics will very likely agree with me that Windows 7, for all of its performance improvements and bling, is essentially one big service deluxe pack for Windows Vista. It’s the Windows Vista that customers were promised when they bought “Vista Capable” PC’s 3 years ago, and despite the rest of us dinosaurs that are set in our ways about the way we like to work, it’s the Windows Vista that even Micosoft’s most ardent supporters hoped that would finally replace Windows XP. Windows 7 is the Vista that we were guaranteed would work properly, the first time around.

    I'm with you Nick, I was happy to have Vista and have had no problems with it and yes it would be nice to have a free upgrade but it is a bit unrealistic and besides when Windows 7 comes out I will happy to buy that too.

    I thought Dinosaurs were extinct.

    And your all invited to Microsofts going out of business exstravaganza(probably spelled wrong, but I'm laughing real hard).

    Why would they give away Win7 to anyone? What are they supposed to be making up for? Making a OS that was everything it was set out to be?

    A major upgrade.

    People with to little power in both their systems and between their ears are the ones that had trouble.

    Compotent users had no problems.

    Prehaps Microsoft should offer free computer training so everyone would know WTF they were doing.

    Seems more logical and cost effective.
