And that is the sickness because MS knows that no matter how much we nerds whine and complain and cry we are still going to line up with our mouths open for our daily dose of childrens motrin, err MS Windows. We will buy the newest stuff as it comes out because we have to have it. We are sick. We need an ANON for this. 

 

When MS Win7 gets released lets not complain about it so much and just blame people that are really at fault. Just look in the mirror next time. The person you see in the mirror is the true problem..LOL...

There's a difference between botching a launch and releasing software that is buggy. I'd wager most OS's are buggy at launch, hence the constant updates and eventual service packs. Vista launch was botched.

IMHO Windows 7 should be just like server 2008 without the server features.

I recently installed server2008 on a amd platform and experience is awesome'

Given Microsoft's history, would you care to make a wager on your assumption?

Hhhmmmmmm?????

Hopefully they don't push to hard to get Windows 7 out quickly and end up making it all buggy like Vista was. I like Vista now, but when it was launched, not so much.

Fast forward to 2010 after the Win7 release........ "God windows 7 is so buggy, man I hate the win7 drm, man win7 is broken what was wrong with Vista?, ms at it again, Vista was great and man i'm never upgrading to win7, win7 sucks, waa waa waa cry cry cry. 

Fast forward to 2011 MS does Mojave Experiment 2. Vista users are tricked into trying Win7 thinking it's a new unreleased OS and they love it. But one Vista user after being told that he is using Win7 will pull a gun and shoot the testers.

Again in Mid2011 MS acknowledges it's mistakes and botched Win7 release and tells the world about it's new super OS that is built with assisstance from Mac and the Linux community. It's called WinLinMac and it's so hardware friendly that it will install on an abacus.

Quite content right now with XP Pro, actually. I'll probably just skip Vista entirely when Win7 launches. And as for the timeline, I thought Win7 was an enhanced version of Vista. If Vista is stable now, it should literally be impossible to botch the launch of Win7 that bad. I'm betting on it being a more stable, more feature rich version of Vista. Which I'm fine with. Tell me if I'm wrong.
