c'mon everybody steals everything from everybody else.... there is no such thing as originality anymore.....

I personally hate macs. Used them at university , they just to me are not intuitive.

I watched the video and I have to say that I am totally unimpressed. The ideas shown in the video were, imo, stolen from Apple. Their OS uses the same style task bar now they just changed it enough to avoid copyright laws. Yeah I use both Apple and MS products as I transition away from Microsoft. Microsoft only sells more because the PC is used more at the moment. As they continue to make unstable software... all I've heard is nightmares about Vista... they will lose out eventually, I think.

i agree computing, programming and such, there's no originality, and that's not exactly wrong. when a programmer gets a new job s/he doesn't need to start a new program or w/e, normally, they have to continue with someone else's job, optimizing code or w/ yeah XD

and, it's not that that OS is not intuitive, i believe most of us are used to microsoft, and the windows environment, so when we face something slightly different, we find it hard to adapt, that's all

I'm with FuN on this one, microsoft are notorious for releasing a product then ironing out the problems later, I think i will wait a few months and get feedback from others, although I'm keen to check it out.

releasing a product --> vista
ironing out the problems --> windows 7

at least that's what i've read and what a couple of guys in school told me XD so yeah windows 7 is vista polished, so it should work fine, so far my friends at uni like it better than vista

Its nigh on a few hours before the Windows 7 launch and things are heating up in the big city web hosting . Folks are lining up at the Windows store, children are quieter and more attentive in school, and the troubles of the world global warming, terrorists, the economy are on hold. We are waiting for a miracle and when it comes it will rhyme with dindows and end with 7′
How happy are you about Windows 7? Like how totally happy? dedicated hosting

Joking aside, Ive been using a Windows 7 machine for almost a month now vps hosting and Im quite impressed with the stability and usability. Im genuinely excited. Not excited enough to buy into it right now, but sooner or later well all be using it somewhere. Microsoft is a juggernaut and no amount of snark can change that domain name registration .

Yeah it's the best by far. I cannot imagine what they can do to make Windows 8 even better. Perhaps some more optimization for faster boot times. Did you know that there is an option in Windows 7 to speed up your boot time drastically if you have a multiple core processor? If not, here is how to do it:

1. Go to Start > RuN and type msconfig and OK

2. Select the Boot tab

3. Click on Advanced Options

4. In the number of processors, select the amount of processors your CPU has and press OK.

The next time your PC boots it will knock off a lot of seconds to the boot time.
