I was bored and reading through general things about Windows versions and revisions. To find out more, you can check out some info on wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Windows I was trying to figure out why did they name "Windows 7". This is not version 7 of Windows... It's version 6.1. Vista is version 6.0 btw. Future Windows will probably be version 7 or something. One thing for sure, it's that they could'nt call it "Windows Vista SE" like they did for Windows 98 SE. Imagine coming out with the name Vista SE instead of 7... Do you think that this would have influenced a lot of people in NOT getting it? What about Vista ME??? But when you take a better look at it, Windows 7 really is like a SE (Second Edition) of Vista. Windows 98 was version 4.10.1998. Windows 98 SE was 4.10.2222 and had many improvements and some new features. Windows ME on the other hand had a much higher version number of 4.90.3000 and introduce a lot newer features but was regarded has the worse OS in Microsoft's history. :shadedshu Everyone is saying that 7 is what Vista should have been. Sounds familliar? Win 98 SE heard this song way before. I use to have Win98SE a long time ago and yes, i did like it better than the original version. Does the same apply to 7 today, not really. Putting a whole bunch of new features on top of an existing OS does it make it a brand new Windows or just an updated version of the same Windows? Vista SE or 7 ? Wich is better?
