    C’mon Zoli, stop being so…uh, never mind.
    We need the feeling that things “evolve”. In its time, IE6 was a good browser, and see what happens if innovation stops for several long years?

    You cannot possibly think, that with W7 things are done…Anyone whith a small fantasy can instance some features we don’t have yet, or maybe not “we”, but businesses, enterprises. You make to much simplification with this “my pc is the browser” approach.

    Windows 7 will be succesful simply because it was released so close after Vista. Vista was so unsuccesful because it was released so long after XP. Releasing Windows very two/three years is actually much better than releasing it every five/six years.

    Seriously, try to look up some dates before you make an analysis that is completely opposite to what it should be.

    Wow. Just a bit bitter.

    I generally tend to agree and believe the OS isn’t that important. Basically whatever is on sale (and that isn’t Apple) that can run a browser. I am currently on Vista, looking forward to Vista09.

    But you are not looking at it from MS point of view. They make a lot of money with OS and appls – both under attack like never before. Do you honestly expect them to just sit back and say well people don’t want to upgrade?

    They are a big company with a lot of influence. Not so much influence they can still control their standards (like .doc vs. .docx). But lots o influence still.

    They need to tie their desktop, appls, browser, and phones together. They have done it before and they will try again. Here is the kicker. I hope they can do it. Why?

    The fact is they can only be successful by making my life easier, so I wish them the best.

    Thanks for that rant Zoli, you speak for many of us. I totally agree that Microsoft should be upgrading us for free to release us from the troubles of Vista. I am starting to contemplate Linux OS in the light of having to reload my hard drive about 9 times since installing Vista, so unstable….. Microsoft & Bill Gates should really just go to hell & be done with it. In their effort to rule the world they have accomplished mainly just putting customers off side.
