Windows 7: Microsoft's Abandoned Ideas For Windows 7

28 Mar 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

I think most of the Vista problems were related to old computer attempting to run it without success so of course the misinformed put the blame on Vista instead of their 10 year old computer which was the real problem. I had zero problems with Vista once the UAC deal was taken care of. Windows 7 is just a nicer looking system with some very cool upgrades.

They also shouldn't allow the pc makers to install all that BS advertising software onto an otherwise nice clean Operating system. That stuff is nothing more than adware and really needs to be outlawed. It's no wonder I build my own computers using a nice clean installation disk.

HP,Dell,Gateway,Sony and the others are all guilty of installing adware on all their customers computers and ruining an otherwise good user experiance. None of those companies should be allowed to build computers because of this. I'll never buy a name brand PC again as long as I live.

lol, that vista-ish taskbar maximized looked crappy...
anyway, i think that the GUI that it already has it's just fine... they should concentrate more on not repeating the same mistakes they did with vista rather than making a new eye-candy that'll be bad reviewed.
anyway, in my opinion those bad words about vista were kind of exaggerated, 'cuz it really wasn't that bad. i had more than a chance to try it at it's full potential, both on x86 and x64, and it didn't have all those bugs that people mentioned. (it was SP1 installed, though)
keep up the good job MS, and try not to leak an infinite builds until releasing a "complete" one, at least equivalent with a service pack. at this rate, those who prefer installing a fresh copy will loose their data over and over again, i hate this kind of stuff...
nevermind, i'll just go back to the apple freaks to ask them when the 10.5.7 update will be released.

here u go...some ideas:
DExposeE2: Expose clone for Windows
Mac OSX Expose Clone for Windows Vista :: the How-To Geek
jonnymac blog » OS X “Spaces” and “Expose” for Windows XP
Ok, and because i don't have a windows PC, or a virtual machine running a MS operating system, i cannot test those programs. So it's up to you to decide.
Oh, and a different kind of "Spaces", a 3D version is CubeDesktop:
CubeDesktop - 3D realtime virtual desktop manager and task switcher
Have fun!
