    I think if i wanted something I would go to a mac.....I mean it looks the same. I think they should regress to the DOS style. They are putting too much effort into the "look" and not the capabilities of the OS. Look at how demanding vista is just for the GUI alone. They spent so much time making it look pretty they forgot that they were even making an OS, and ended up selling a game with a lot of bugs.

    to those of lustin for Minwin... Windows 7 will not be based on it. I read a story on it a few weeks back. Windows 7 will have the same basic requirements of Vista SP1 (vista SP1 is a bit nicer to low end systems than Vista RTM fyi). MinWin will be used for writing apps and such at Microsoft.
    Now, Windows 7 should SEEM lighter, because it'd be like launching Vista in 2010, and by then, 16 core CPUs should be common, so Vista will fly on those systems, and so will Windows 7.
    Microsoft's plans for Windows now are the same as Apple did to OS X.... Incrimental improvements only slight increases in system requirements, and Windows 7 should also increase compatability with programs via virtual machines, like OS X did with the Classic enviroment... MS is not copying Apple, they are just getting ready to start advancing their Windows OS into a more advanced product that will eventually no longer be Windows as we know it, but still be able to run all Windows apps.

    EDIT: basicvally what I am sayin is that virtual machines are the future.

    Ah, but I think is is really 7 Ultimate, because Vista Ultimate has Tablet PC features in it, and the windows 7 developers said that they want advanced touch support in the OS because they fore see touch screens becoming common as they strive to get rid of the KB and mouse input methods. Also, voice recogition will be 'extremely advanced' compared to Vista and XP, so much so that you should be able to run windows 7 with only your voice. (read that somewhere too, lol)

    Damn, I read too much about windows 7... But hell, I want it! lol.

    exatly, it says I think in there somwhere that it is 7 ultimate wich is why it has those "tablet" features, oh and virtual machines are te future, they just prolly will not be as "enthusiast friendly" as desktops are so they will be shunned in some places.

    Yes... I don't like the idea of rebooting into a classic mode, BUT, windows 7 will not need to do that like OS X had too. The needed APIs and shit will be there in the OS.. so basdically it says "Windows 98 app!" and loads the needed stuff so it'll run fine, kinda like Vista does on a less successful level.
