    after i did my research i dicorver window 7 &vista kind of the same,the only reason the 7 has more features/window xp

  7. ExpertAdvice says

    It appears that the only improvements are eye-candy. If nothing under the hood has changed then just stick to XP or switch to a completely free and more reliable and secure operating system called Debian GNU/Linux.

    Well the name windows 7 makes since since there was Windows 3.1 but Windows ME was built on 98 technology and XP was built from Windows 2000 techonolgy does anyone know if 7 is a totally new platform or just a modded vista??

    I like the Operating Systems, but the names get stupider with every new release. I mean first it was win 95, then 98 , then 2000 that made sense….then Millennium ,..okay, then XP …stupid, then vista,. stupider , and then 7. wtf!

  11. Austine Kuyoro says

    well windows 7 is nice,but i think it is just a modification of windows vista,like windows xp to windows ’98.Microsoft is doing a good job and i believe soon we will have another windows which the name may be “….”

    It is so sad how Microsoft releases a Piece of sh!& and then can get away with charging you to upgrade to the way VISTA / Long horn was suppose to be release. They have lost me as a customer.
