    yeah it looks just like KDE, but i believe its because they want to make it easier to use with touchscreen devices, up until now i have managed to keep on running XP, Win 7 might just be my next path.

    If they manage to make it cheap aswell, maybe it will get over the problem of pirating to some degree. £100 for a full retail edition mid range OS version like home prem of vista.

    Looking good, but i dont like that taskbar, well not on my main machine, on my netbook, fine, but i'd still like an idication text-wise as to what it is lying on my taskbar, time will tell though, it probably works a lot better when you're using it.

    Aint the MS monopoly great. Flog Vista as the OS that will change everything, it isnt successful commercially so bring out another that addressed the issues with Vista, that they flatly denied until they are about to leak Win7 then they admit Vista was crap.

    I've had enough of MS wish someone would nuke Bill Gates' backside off the planet. I wont be buying it or even trying it out on principle.

    MS has shafted those that bought Vista good and proper. Arseholes.

    So, who cares? Not 'M$' bashers thats for sure, all they see is microsoft = bill gates.

    He is one ****ING man in a ****ing massive company of which he probably has little control of right now making millions from software, that people dispair is horrible but dont have the intelligence to ****ing use something else.

    I hate seeing Microsoft being bashed, not cus i am a fanboy, because the arguements are so retarded.

    I have a nice 64 bit quad core machine sitting next to me that i got from ebay a while ago and havnt bothered to do much with it. So I might give this a go. The only reason I am using XP now is because I can use horizontal span in the gfx options(for 2 or more screens merged as one rendered desktop), something which was removed in vista which only supports standard multiple monitor setups.
    I actually liked vista alot and windows 7 looks quite good too.

    Ah thats ok then. I take it all back. :rolleyes:


    I hate seeing MS bashed. If it wasnt for MS the PC wouldnt be were it is today. But its time they and the rest of us moved on. MS is doing nothing but peddling its own self interests, bringing nothing innovative anymore and holding back development. I have no doubt they put in some 'unique' features into win7 to make me buy it. If it came with a free gold bar dispenser I still wont be buying it.

    Microsoft is and will always be the company that helped change the computer world. People dog Microsoft for being a monopoly but THAT'S BUSINESS. The purpose of a business is to make money and since there is not such thing as a free market you can only make so much money before someone complains. If you don't like a company don't buy their products! These days you don't have to use Microsoft products at all. I use their products because it works and I get what I need done without problems. I use Vista Ultimate 64bit and haven't had a problem since I started using it.

    At least Microsoft gives their money to charities unlike other big name companies. The Gates Foundation has given aways billions to people in need!

    I really like Windows 7. It's the way Vista should be and it runs really well even on my low end PCs.

    that the thing, MS made the modern PC and there direct X helped in that massively! And need we remember where Gates started it all, all on a mac.

    No i stand up to MS, over the years they have bought out smaller companies but kept the people on and then used there technology/research to be intergrated into there OS and software.

    MS could have easily released there own photo imaging software to compete against Adobe, but they haven't. MS is only as big as we made them, windows is a standard same with office files, this is because its easy.

    No my only problem with MS is there pricing and security solutions on there OS, XP was ok, up until you had to link it with MS to check that its not a copy, but vista takes the piss.

    I like my freedom, nothing worse than your OS going tits up at a lan event, and hitting the wall with vista install security and spending a while on a phone trying to get the code or re-activation. Thats why i am still XP.

    You know i dont think XP will die, and thats the problem MS faced upon release of Vista, they made such a hash off vista's performance on laptops that companies demanded XP to be installed.

    XP is that old dog that refuses to die, and only when all software moves to a pure x64 enviroment will it die out, and then i bet you'll still find people using it on there 2nd machine! lol!
