Windows 7: Will speed be unnoticeable in a few years?

Computer speed has become very exponential at the moment, and the speed over the previous generation of hardware isn't as noticeable as what it was say, 5 years ago.

Hardware is more designed for tomorrows computers more than todays.

Which is good so we do not need to constantly upgrade.

Awww... you guys forgot one factor... Software. If we are to use DOS in a 3.2GHz octo core/16 thread XEON monster with 36GB of RAM, everything will feel VERY FAST !!! It's lightning speed ON A DOS... I'm sure, whatever the hardware we'd have in the future, the software will have enough complexity to bog it down to the level that we'll all say "bah, it's too slow, is it malware? virus?"...

Trust me...

Remember, back then Bill Gates said, 640k is enough for everyone, now my Firefox is using 700MB memory, iTunes clocking at 150MB, Explorer @ ~100MB, and many more...

Bill Gates never said that....The '640K' quote won't go away -- but did Gates really say it? - Computerworld
