Simply put... Making large moves like heh everything is 64bit now is literally stupid and causes MAJOR issues... Look what happened when vista was released, they could have done 100% backward compatibility with XP applications, but they didn't and look what it caused. As a starting line I know people that are running P4's with 1gb of ram running Win 7 now and are enjoying it more than XP or Vista, we are still talking about 32bit chips here... It's like asking why do they still make boards with PATA ports, why do floppy disks / drives still exist... It's nearly endless, but in turn they exist and are continued to be made for VERY good reason. *Let's just convert ALL new gas stations to server E-85 only!* ***FYI this would make sense too at that level, you can produce "more" power from "less" E-85 then from standard E0-E10 blends. What they should have done was individual packages as they were saying they were going to do in the first place... 99.9% of users do not need anything over Vista Basic and really need less than it gives. So if I want support for more ram, I have to get Business or H.Prem, then I get a lot of other junk I don't need nor want. It's Microsoft continuing to be fat and lazy. I have no doubt that Windows 7 will be a great OS, I just wish they would do it "right" for once.
