    Paul Thurrott updates his Windows site on a regular basis, so I think it's a good place to get the latest info on Windows 7 developments.

    I'd recommend posting links to the articles without the long excerpts. If you want, paraphrase each article into two or three sentences. You could paraphrase the previews from the WinSuperSite, or just post the link and remove the excerpts. :)

    I was informed by a friend that Steve Ballmer announced that Windows 7 is basically Vista, but better.

    So he basically just put himself in the position where when they do release Windows 7 and those who wasted money on Vista (includes myself) can officially say Microsoft is ****ing us out of our money, just like they have been the past few years where they create a new OS from scratch, then release a better version and make you pay for it still, when they could, and SHOULD release an update for us.

    That makes me mad too. Calling windows 7, Vista-like is bad publicity. I don't feel like spending all that cash for another vista. I mean... whats next, another another Vista to pay for a year after that?

    Whats the big deal? If it's similar to the point that you wouldn't want to buy it again whats wrong with staying with Vista? It's not like they have a gun up to your head demanding you to buy it

    This really get me :mad: Two months ago I bought vista and about a week ago I convinced my mom to pick up a copy. Oh well I guess I will wait about a year or so and pick up a copy of Windows 8 (once they fix the bugs in windows 7)!!!:cool: I should look into this stuff before I by it I guess! so much for buying the latest software.

    The exact reason why I dont go right out and buy any OS for a few years. Yeah I might be behind. But I didnt start using XP till about 04.

    ...

    Err, you have to purchase the new Apple operating systems too... Does that mean you have to be pissed off when Snow leopard comes out, when Leopard is still quite new? And don't even get me started on the iPod lineup.

    Besides, Windows 95, 98, 98SE, 2000, ME, XP...This has been happening for years, why get pissed at it now?

    And I don't believe Vista was a flop. It's still an admiral upgrade to XP. So what it took 6 years to come out, if anything that should make you happy in breaking the tradition for a while.
