They're really trying to move away from Vista, and I think their pricing will reflect that.

No they won't, they'll just continue lying and making things up. And it will keep selling computers.

I haven't been this excited about an OS since Dos 6.2 came out.

LOL Oh man. I love watching Oprah.....

I also enjoy reading the Tabloids at the grocery store check stand.

Personally, I think they're rushing Windows 7 like they always do. "Vista" has a stigma about it... yet I personally have no problems with it. *shrugs*

Vista has a stigma about it because it was a total mess at launch. It also weighed down older systems that handled XP with smaller RAM sizes fine like a brick.And if you build to the system requirements that microsoft recommends you'll be in for some real dissapointment and frustration. As of now I have no extreme gripes towards Vista (SP1 and patched up) but 1+ years ago I wouldn't be typing the same thing. Add on top the fact that a full XP Pro SP2 X64 install with all drivers loaded on my systems can come in at around 1.5 GBs of storage space use as were Vista Business SP1 X64 can horde 15+ GBs. It has a reputation for being bloated and bad for a reason.

I never understood the appeal of touch screens. It seems gimmicky, and rather useless. If I want my screens to look like smudgy crap I would rub dirty Vaseline all over them.

I don't want touch capability

I think its the future in terms of common use

but i still think gaming and 3d work is going to mainly orient around the mouse... atleast until some really innovative 3d technology that allows you to kinda be in a virtual reality


I'm wondering if I should get windows 7 beta... or get windows vista

I'm gonna be changing operating system soon and I am wondering... but un sure about the process of beta operating systems

Haven't you see any of the holographic tech that's been going around? Creating 3D graphics using your hands over a holographic display. I can't remember what company is doing that though.

I could get 50-60 screenshots of Build 7000, showing the new functionality and changes, if anyone is interested.

There are quite a few things that are different. I may make a thread in the next few days.

I said 50-60 for the pickier people. A lot of those would probably be cropped, like for the new taskbar features, and some other new options.
