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.
