Most of you guys most be young to realize how much ME sucked at least they fixed Vista. sp2 pretty stable on vista. ME was made from pure laziness. 95 wasn't great but it was Microsoft biggest step since 3.1. 98 and se are like windows 7 in a way. 2000 was crappy at first, it took 4 services packs to correct. ME was and is a lost cause. Vista is the favorite child compared to ME.

The one thing that destroys the Vista/7 Deal for me is the god awful Network and Sharing Center. ALL I WANT IS TO BE ABLE TO MANAGE MY NETWORK CONNECTIONS, I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT SOME DIAGRAM THAT TELLS ME THAT I'M NOT CONNECTED TO THE GLOBE. /rant Not to mention it loves to not respond when I put my laptop in hibernation a few times. Also homegroup is dumb.

I grew up on DOS, ME wasn't so bad...Once you disable system restore and make sure that the system doesn't have a faulty RAM stick, it's fine.

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.

I can't wait to actually see it in beta, should be awesome.

I doubt I'm going to make the switch so soon, though.

Every OS Microsoft is coming out with they're trying to generally make it simple for the public. Windows 7 was obviously such a success because they listened to the people and they executed those ideas.

If you consider what they implement "bloatware" then just strip that bloatware and make your own Custom OS!

Yea just use a windows 7 customizer and delete everything you don't' want. You'd be surprised what you can disable using the registry.

Love me some 2000. I miss that OS. Still got my disc, I won as some sort of "booby prize". Signed up for its remote launch party at FAU and couldn't attend. Found the box in the mail several days later.

But seven is great, I am just surprised they are trying to push this out that "quickly".

The definition of "quickly" being relative to the discussion of MS Software Development.

I'm perhaps a bit late, but wanted to clear a few things up regarding this information.

There have been many sites reporting that Windows 8 Milestone 2 being compiled already, however this is not completely true.

Microsoft have already completed the Milestone 1 phase of development and are currently in the process of developing Milestone 2 code. Everything that is being put into current builds of Windows 8 is classed as Pre-M2 and since Milestone 2 is currently being developed these builds feature the "win8m2" text in the desktop watermarks. This is to show that everything that's being incorporated into those builds is part of Milestone 2's overall design, feature and code set.

The Milestone 2 development phase should be completed sometime next month, where all M2 design, features and code should be present in the last few compiled builds.

Milestone 3's physical development will be starting shortly, possibly around next month.
In Progress...
