And I think a Win8 will be a loose when it comes to Enterprise, because corporates are just now beginning to migrate to Win7 - having entirely skipped Vista over. MS would be better off getting rid of all the crazy version permutations, and consoldating their lineup into something rational and understandable. Like Home Basic - I don't think anyone uses it, at least every system I see in stores has Home Premium - and I think that detracts, because people see "Home" and equate it to "Lame" - when really, the garbageware they include to make it "Professional" is actually "Lame" and could be "Killed".
Of course, Win8 is probably another Steve Ballmer turkey - based on his previous utterings, if he says Win8 is going to be "the best", head for the hills, because it will be one massive ball of hurt that will alienate even the hardest core of Windows fanbots.
Home Basic is primarily sold outside North America in developing markets on systems which have low specs.
and what garbageware is in Pro? pro supercedes Home Premium with a few features like network backup, XP mode, and better domain support. don't need them, then stay with home premium, which, for once, is what most users will actually need.
where do you come up with the facts to support your opinions? first OSX is bloated and not good, and now the same for Windows???

It clearly wasn't perfect when MS had to go for Windows 7 and doitrite.
I do have to bring up, though, that Vista doubled XP's launch sales.
Within its first month, 20 million copies of Vista were sold, double the amount of Windows XP sales within its first month in October 2001, five years earlier.
PC's weren't as important or mainstream back then, and there weren't as many people buying PC's. those figures get skewed when compared because of time and the different market conditions
7 did the same thing as compared to Vista if i recall correctly.Edited by -iceblade^ - 1/4/11 at 10:05pm
