Windows 7: Windows 8 Faster, Smaller, and More Responsive than Win

I would like to see a true 64-bit OS. My Win7 64-bit has tons of 32-bit apps running. Microsoft app ones btw, because of plug-ins and codecs - you know what I am talking about. If "don't make any sense to compile XYZ app as 64-bit", then forget 64-bit was a step forward and let's get back using 16-bit apps.

Burn Intel, burn!!!

Mmmmm. Let's see...
Had Windows 1
Windows 3.0 & 3.1
Windows 95
Windows 98SE
Windows XP
Windows 7
So if I stick to my pattern I guess I'm waiting for Windows 9!

Is your pattern to skip every other release? If so then you skipped over ME/2000 which messed up your pattern.

Which is unfortunate because 2000 is essentially XP with a minimal UI and extras stripped out. It was stable and reliable.

There is plenty of room for improvement - the faster, the better. How do you figure to feed those 6, 8 and 12 core processors with NT.

No offense to you or your neighbor, but is he all their in the head?

I have a couple of friends that 'are not all their'. One thinks Vista is 'better' (yes, better) then 7.
