You gotta be joking.
Yes. I got your meaning before. I was imagining what if that had actually been said about Vista.
You may be happy. Up to you, whatever (I'm not going to debate Vista anymore). But the vast majority of the power users is not.
It turned into a Vista talk because Microsoft has its share of responsibility, wether you like it or not, when it certifies a driver that doesn't work or has serious bugs that BSOD or otherwise kill the OS.

Sorry, this statement is just ignorant. The move from DOS to Win95 brought with it an architecture move. A move from 16 bits to 32 bits. A move from real mode to protected mode. Oh, and a move from taking over the graphics card for yourself to sharing it with everything else. (But this was already present in Win16 apps, so it doesn't really count.)Quote:

Well, there's the access rights thing. I suppose that's one compatibility problem.
Whoa, CornedBee! I didn't know of that. This looks like one gigantic shot on their foot. More like a cannon ball. I checked the slides as the information is said to be the current one.
I've been wondering since last summer if this isn't the time for me to move to linux once and for all. I mean, I'm no longer being pressed by career decisions, as I removed myself from that. Besides linux has become increasingly appealing over the years. It's more geekish too.
Won't leave windows though. I feel culturally attached to it. Been my life since DOS. But I've definitely been feeling more willing to move on and leave windows as a secondary OS.
Yes. But the primary reason I posted it was because of this statement:
The Final Thoughts part of the article leads me to disagree with this.Quote:
