An absolute joke that is 7 times WORSE then Vista, hence the name Windows 7. It actually REMOVES features, it doesn't add them. Literally half of the features from Vista, including Windows Mail and Windows Movie Maker (and oh so many more) are not only not included, there not even obtainable. Microsoft replaced a few, but not all, of these programs with this new downloadable software suite called Windows Live Essentials, but its a bigger joke then Windows 7! The apps are not only inferior to Windows Vista's included apps, there inferior to XP's! I guess if you want to go searching for 3 days for a halfway decent, free video editor, you can do that, but why bother when you can just stick with Windows XP/Vista or get a Mac and not bother with bull like this. Trust me, 7 is NOT an improvement, it REMOVES features. I haven't even noticed a speed up, its exactly the same speed as Vista (which is fine, its not slow, nor was Vista). THIS OS SUCKS. I'm guessing its succeeding because unlike Vista, its technical requirements have been lowered dramatically, allowing it to be installed on some machines over 10 years old. This is the reason for its success, it works on systems so obsolete, they probably don't even have a DVD drive to install it! Rather then buying one, why not just buy a new computer? I highly recommend a Mac over a PC, but if you cant afford one, get a cheap PC and put XP or Vista on it. Trust me, VISTA IS A GOOD OS and even XP has alot of things Windows 7 doesn't!more...

When Microsoft tried to create an operating system as good as Apple's Mac OSX.
Microsoft's interface is pretty much a rip off that doesnt work.
Apple's "widgets" are not the same in Windows, Microsoft did not steal the idea in Vista... They are called "gadgets". Clearly not the same.
Apple's "Expose" and "apple-tab" are not the same as Window's "flip" and "flip 3d" they clearly have different names and look slightly differnt.
Window's new "instant search" is not the same because it is not called "spotlight", like apple. It is important to note that they are on completly different sides of the screen, apple in the top right and windows in the top left. This means they are different.
There are many more reasons that Vista sucks.
"Yea, on my Windows Vista system, it sucks."
"Get a Mac."
|5.||Windows F'ed in the A|
On newer computers with Windows 2000 and XP, there is a keyboard shortcut "Windows + F". This shortcut will bring up a search window when pressed once. When held, however, multiple (into the hundreds and even thousands) of search windows will appear. The time held directly correlates with the number of search windows to appear. When held long enough, the computer may crash and may even need a restart. This is something done in many schools to screw around and pull a prank on a fellow, and later on, pissed off, classmate. It also adds an extra shock when one turns off the monitor making an unsuspecting victim.
Teachers are always stumped when they see this dilemma, and usually suggest restarting, thinking the computer just freaking out.
Uneducated users also don't know "Ctrl + W" and "Alt + F4" can be held to very quickly get rid of this problem. However, these shortcuts will not solve the problem if it is held long enough to crash.
Teacher: Why don't you come up to the board and show us this model.
Student 1: *Walks up to board*
Student 2: (Whilst student 1 is at board) *Presses and holds "Windows + F" for an extended period of time, then turns off monitor*
Student 1: *Walks back and turns on monitor, seeing the hundreds of search windows* "Son of a biiiitch, I got Windows F'ed in the A"
noun. A term, often used by gamers, to describe a quest in an RPG game in which the player must obtain an object or objects to complete the quest. While in the process, they may come into contact with enemies, obstacles, and or general head ache. After the player has obtained the object, the quest is completed, and the character is awarded with a tivial reward. Most gamers hate fetch quests, and games such as Aika Online are full of them.
Yeah, it's just a simple fetch quest. Just go get a bucket of milk and give it to the farmer.
Gah! I have to get a stupid glowing rock for only 1000 XP?!?! I hate fetch quests!
Windows XP is like any other Microsoft program. You get to share your opnion on how things should work and get to send a report every time things go bad.
and they gather all that info, put it on a harddisk several terrabytes big, and do nothing with it. they just keep creating trash sofware so you can keep sharing your opnion. they like that, that way the coders get the attention they don't get at home.
A computer without a Microsoft operating system is like a chocolate cake without mustard.
