windows7 looks too much like vista

Discussion in 'Windows Vista' started by Adam Albright, Apr 12, 2009.

  1. windows7 looks too much like vista...

    When people see it, they will avoid it just because its too vista- like.

    Microsoft perceives that they will eventually lose the OS war, that's why
    they are keeping their last good OS
    alive (XP)

    Even with Windows7 you will be able to downgrade to XP!

    Yes you heard that... microsoft wants to be sure they have a backup plan
    when people just ignore their
    attempts to make a new os "based on vista", and will provide downgrade
    rights to XP when you get Win7.

    While windows7 seems good enough, the reputation of vista as the worse OS
    ever made on earth, will retard its retarded sales.

    I don't think Microsoft will ever fully recover from the blow vista had on
    their business and reputation.

    Now Linux is the next big thing....

  3. You get one with windows7 because it will be forced upon you.

    Now if you could use downgrade rights and go back to XP or switch to
    Linux...
    that's the step you would have to take. You would have to do it manually or
    PAY someone to do it for you.

    Microsoft is betting on the ignorance and laziness of people.
    That they wont go into much trouble to uninstall the crap Microsoft force
    feeds them....

    But just imagine how much people hated vista, in order for millions to get
    rid of it...
    Formatting or dual-booting with XP, switching to linux or MACOS.

    What a POS OS! People have actually pulled a gun on vista, firing a bullet
    through the monitor.
    One guy through his machine out the window... another one through it in a
    pool...

    Unfortunately that only killed the machine... not vista.
    Vista is like an evil spirit.. it doesn't die easily.

  4. Of course Window 7 looks like Vista it is build on the Vista kernel. Windows
    98 and ME were very similar because they were build on the Windows 98
    kernel. Windows 7, however, has more security features than Vista and also
    is far more stable. It also has more compatibility with hardware than Vista
    had when Vista was originally released.

    Your choice of operating system will depend upon the manufacturer of your
    PC - remember it is not only Microsoft that has to make money, the PC
    manufacturers' have to too. If they don't think Windows 7 will sell their
    machines then they will opt for an alternative. That alternative will not,
    however, be XP. XP has passed its sell buy date now and I don't think
    Microsoft will be allowing any 'downgrade' options; if anything the only
    downgrade option will be Vista.

    Windows 7 beta is another Microsoft Edsel.
    It looks and feels like Vista with a slightly different GUI and possibly
    faster disc access.
    Microsoft claims that Vista drivers will work under Win 7: I can personally
    assure you this is not true for the Win 7 64 bit public beta--nothing could
    be further from the truth.

    They know about MS and Apple not Linux.

  8. When I installed Windows 7 on 3 different computers (one was 4-5 years old)
    there was not one driver that was missed in all of the installations.
    Everything just worked!

    XP is being kicked to the curb, like what has happened in the past with
    the other O/S(s). XP's time has come and it's going.

    Windows 7 looks like 'Windows' so no real surprise there..

    The option to have XP will be limited to business, not the general public.
    Win 7 will probably make better headway than Vista because the world and his
    dog have gotten over the initial Vista shock. While Win 7 runs very well
    indeed on a well specified Vista machine, it does not require so much to
    push it along..

    As long as MS keep XP alive for business, Linux will remain where it is, and
    home users want an OS that works with software they are used to having and,
    in this way, Linux desktop will also remain where it is.

    That's a load of either BS or ignorance. I've been running Win7 32 and
    64 bit versions of build 7000, the official beta release, since 16
    January and have had *no* glitches of any kind with drivers. During
    installation they installed drivers for *all* of my devices, including a
    ten year old HP printer, and everything works just fine.

    My guess is that you are one of those people too stupid to own a computer!

    So what's your problem with Vista? I see nothing wrong with it and I've
    run them all from Windows 31. to Windows 7. I have Windows 7 Ultimate as
    a virtual machine on Vista Home Premium and see no problems and 7 is not
    the same as Vista at all. I've have XP Professional and XP Media and
    Vista is better to me. What's your beef?

    Umm.. I call at least a little BS on that. NO drivers included for an HP
    Laserjet 4L buddy but is included in Vista, and the one provided by HP
    prints garbage in Win 7. Further, Control Panel crashes Windows Explorer
    randomly on my machine. Haven't had the time to T-shoot it. I'm NOT the
    only person to be having problems.. Go here,
    ,search
    around and see/read the MANY complaints/problems. Further, the dumb OS
    can't even find my print server. ..A not so old Hawking print server.
    Get real, Win 7 isn't much better about hardware than Vista was/is. It
    couldn't even come up with a real sound driver for my almost three year
    old HP. It used a "generic" driver. (It's a Realtech HD) I had to use a
    Vista driver for it. ..So please, try to keep from "candy-coating" your
    beloved Microsoft OS. While it has it's good points in my testing, it
    also has problems.. Everyone act surprised.. And the "too stupid to own
    a computer" excuse is not only OLD, but just that, STUPID. A person
    should not have to have a degree in computer science to use one! Please
    upgrade your thinking to the 21st century before making such a statement.

    You goddamn people with your antique hardware (anything over a year
    old). Just buy all new hardware to support MS's new OS and you'll be
    fine.

    Nah, Oldfart was right, if a bit harsh. The relative incompetence of
    computer users increases proportionally with the increasing sophistication
    of the OS. Ironically, the more user friendly they make the GUI interface
    the less incentive there is to ever learn the basics.

    Win7 came with all drivers for my 5 year old PC, including the Realtek HD
    audio and Realtec also offers Win7 drivers for download. All of my printers
    (Canon, HP 2 -10 years old ) have working drivers in Win7. Some devices use
    their Vista drivers. Only some hardware that was abandoned by the respective
    MF's in Vista doesn't work in Win7 either... Not MS's responsibility.
    Overall the most painless clean OS install I've done in recent years. There
    are as many complaints about any OS as there are crap computers, defunct
    peripherals and crappy 3rd party software installs out there, plus there are
    whatever real problems that exist in this beta version OS. Up till now I've
    encountered exactly none of those problems, but I haven't added a lot of 3rd
    party software to Win7 yet either and there is a seemingly infinite variety
    of tasks that other people do with their computers that I'd never try.

    They need to lock you up. When was the last time you had a mental
    check-up? I think it's overdue.
