Thanks for posting on OS's. I always appreciate learning more on them all. It also gives us something to grumble about from the past, lol... Think of it as venting pent up frustrations, like as though we were like old ladies, lol....
I had to start somewhere, and didn't start with MS-DOS versions
And I ment to say Windows-ME (which was a downright disaster) instead of Windows2000.
Forgot to mention Windows-NT (which was good)..
But re-reading my own post, maybe it wasn't clear what I was trying to say:
MS has a habit of following up good a good OS with a bad one; hence my doubts about Windows8
Personally, I (still) use Windows98-SE, Windows-XP and Windows7-64bit
Heck, from what I gather, MS will be actively supporting XP longer then Vista ...
I loved Win98-SE! Man.... I could shut down most of the MSDOS programs and FS would run really fast on it. It was fast, refined, incredible. Far better then Win98.
Vista made me so upset. It was driving me nuts. I was so glad to go back to WinXP through Apple. (Bootcamp). My fave computers were Gateway, then HP, and HP wouldnt support XP anymore, so off to Apple I went and I am so glad and blessed that this happened.
I see nothing but good reports on Win7. I think, from what I see outside of the big box, is that perhaps Windows is trying to do things new, like Apple. The amazing part with Apple is that they test it with all their employees and vote on things. If they didnt like something, they said so. When it was finally released, it was refined as to how they wanted it to work. It wasnt put together too fast, it was refined before going to market. It was also kept secret and they had control on its quality and things. (Sometimes its better for less people's input and less commanders or you lose direction, like a camel being designed as to be a horse, but they added this and that, and did this instead, etc, falling short of the goal direction).
I hope Win8 does well. I hope Win7 is kind to me, lol... I intend to get it. Looks awesome. Hard to beleive its being replaced already. Why dont they just do addons for OS's instead of reinventing the wheel? Oh well. :D
