Windows 7 Going Full Steam Ahead December 3, 2008

No cookie! Microsoft is trying to put Vista behind them as quickly as possible.  Or are they?  

 

 The Redmond, Washington-based megacorp just announced that the first beta for  Windows 7 will begin on January 13, 2009.  This would seem to indicate that soon  V**** will be merely an unhappy memory, like Windows Me.  But what is really under  the hood of this “new” operating system?

 

 According to the Computerworld blogosphere, not much.  The current build runs as  slowly as Vista – that is to say 40% slower than Windows XP.  It is just as much as a  resource hog, if not worse.  Finally, 7 has a freshly muddled Graphical User  Interface, as if you hadn’t just come to terms with the GUI-upending Vista. And don’t give the “it’s still a beta” story.  From a kernel perspective, it’s not.  What it is Vista Mk 2. 

 

Bottom Line: absolutely dying for a new OS? Get yourself a nice pretty Snow Leopard.
