Comments on: Microsoft shows off Windows 7 touch-screen features http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/10/22/microsoft-shows-off-windows-7-touch-screen-features/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Brian Bigelow http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/10/22/microsoft-shows-off-windows-7-touch-screen-features/#comment-368342 Mon, 26 Oct 2009 14:53:22 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=19655#comment-368342 Having beta tested it, Windows7 is much better than Vista in many ways. Programs do load faster, OS boots up quicker. That being said, quite a few programs will not run (don’t try to load a Win 95,98,2000, ME program and quite a few XP programs, the system will crash). Most drivers from Vista also will not work though Win7 does load fairly good generic drivers. It has a tendency to lose files (because of the virtual file system).

Do you realize that the so called failure Vista sold more copies than OSX will sell in 30 years? There is no OS war … get a life

A common misconception (by the handful of Mac and Linux users), which often results in ignorant negative comments, is that Windows competes with Mac. Windows is the dominant operating system. Microsoft’s campaign in Windows 7 is to win over XP users, not Mac or Linux users.

Haven’t you noticed that Windows is just trying to keep pace with Mac OS-X?.. it’s more Mac-like than ever before.

I’ll give it 2-3 years so they can work out the bugs.

The good news is I bought Apple for $11 in 1992 (topped out at $182 today), and Microsoft is down to $24 or $26 today, I’ll by MS this week. Then when they finally dump that jacka** Ballmer it will rise into the 50’s or 60’s and I’ll make another killing! I love this country!

With all the lawsuits from ripping off other developers, unfair trade practice for which they were nailed in the EU, Microsoft is the most arrogant corporation in American, selling (ooops, its licensing so they can’t be sued) the most flawed product on the planet. New Windows? ha,ha,ha…..
