General Software Discussion / Re: Who should judge Win7's success?

...And with a 10 year warning it's about damn time it went the way of 16bit software
Why? "Never change a running system". After all, there wasn't a need for that, unlike 16 bit software (as 32 bit CPUs came up).

UI improvements and all.
Why do you think this is an improvement?

Ya know the "Classic" start menu really only had about a five year run 95-2k ... The Start Panel introduced (to the public e.g. the rest of us had it earlier...) in 2001 when XP was RTM is looking at about a 10 year run at this point. So... Why is it still being treated as some new evil thing?!?
This is the first time that "the public" is forced to use it...

Or do you mean it just uses more resources in general? But I always heard that "unused ram is wasted ram", don't you agree?
Unused RAM is cache for me. More resource usage = less performance with the same resources, right?

what I read about microsoft having made studies on how it was an improvement in usability for the general public.
Do you really trust Microsoft's studies? Of course they will never result in "this sucks".

It takes as much space as Vista? It takes as much time to boot as Vista?
According to the recommendations, it takes at least twice as much of resources. :P

About the taskbar, you found studies showing that people are less productive when using win7?
I performed studies myself. The one I performed them with was I. You see, if you are keen with a certain way to handle your OS (having been using Windows since 1996), it is a huge loss of productivity if you'll have to change your behavior entirely.

No more actual "task" bar, no more classic start menu; two big disadvantages for me. Of course, computer newbies (starting with Vista or sth) won't have these problems.

No problem. Recently stumbled upon it.

I - personally - would never use anything which resides on Google's servers. Maybe when it is completely open source...
