I said the same thing about XP when it first came out while I was still using 98 SE.

Sure, presently XP is still useful, it's just antiquated, less pretty, and less secure than Win 7, that's all.

Vista.. forget about it. It's rotting in OS purgatory right next to Win ME.

I don't understand why PC pundits are puzzled by Windows XP's incredible endurance. The only way Windows 7 can replace it is by force, i.e. by making XP no longer available.

Why, because there is nothing you can do on a Windows 7 PC of any note that you can't do on an XP PC.

Don't get me wrong, I use Windows 7 now and enjoy it. But "rocks the socks of XP"? I don't think so.

Not nearly.

its funny, i remember asking one of our IT guys if he had seen the windows 7 demos (when they were first released way back before the builds with the new Ui were leaked) and he said "windows 7? why? XP is all ill ever need." hes eating his words now thats for sure. we finally did get all of our windows computers upgraded to windows 7 after IT got fed up with all the malware my coworkers were unknowingly loading onto them. im not surprised most of my coworkers are seeing windows 7 for the first time while a few of them are happy to finally have it. unfortunately for me, im stuck using final cut on a mac

Well... While Windows 7 is becoming the mainstream, I am ready for Windows 8! Freaking love that design.

I do too actually, I'm not sure if you're a fan of the ribbon (MS Office 2010) but I think it's a good fit, should've been in W7 actually. They should've found a way to merge Vista and 7 since 7 is just Vista with all the bugs and problems fixed.

Yes, I am familiar with the ribbon, and I love it. I only got to play with the MS Office 2007 edition. So I know it is much better on the 2010 version. I do not know why so many people banter against it. I like both modes to be honest.

Windows 7 and Windows Vista look nearly identicle. I really do not know why they just could not give Vista a service pack upgrade and just fix the damn bugs. I am using Vista on my desktop and 7 on my laptop... Other than the minor upgrades, they are the same thing that costed me an extra $100.

I think Windows 8 will be a revolution like Windows 95 once was. A break against tradition. For the better.

"Windows 7 will be the most common OS in the world by the time 2012 rears its ugly head."

 

Perfect, just in time for Windows 8.

Poor MS. They finally conquer the world in 2012, right before the galaxy blows up!
