Is anyone truly going to purchase Windows 7 ? Come on folks it is just Vista tweaked. Should be called Vista SP2. Microsoft only recently released Vista (relatively) and now have improved it, to charge as a new operating system just 2 years later, GIVE US A BREAK

the super bar is a revoluntanary addition but honestly its a whole new f**king OS and a new taskbar isnt that big of a deal

microsoft should spend at least 4 years on a os i think

with SPs along the way

add some more majorfeatures instead of just a superbar

theres no way im buying a os every 2 years

People paid for XP when it was released less than 2 years after Windows 2000 was released, and you can just as easily argue that Windows XP is just Windows 2000 "tweaked." The changes introduced in XP from 2000 is usability changes... that sounds a lot like two other OSes I know of...

But wait, there can't be a common pattern. It's like Windows 98 was a tweaked version of Windows 95 that offered user usability enhancements that was released 3 years after 95... Wait...

Better yet, we must not forget about Windows 98 Second Edition, which MS charged pre-existing Windows 98 users 20 bucks for bug fixes...

It's almost as if MS has this cycle. Release a new OS about every 2-3 years, with a Major release being followed by a minor release that improves upon the groundwork laid down by the major release. Do you think MS is aware of this? Naw... I doubt it.

If you don't think Windows 7 is worth the money, then don't buy it. Nobody is forcing you to upgrade and nobody cares if you do or don't.

If you can't afford to buy it, don't buy it.
Its as simple as that.

Pirate it.

Better pirate it than not use it at all imo (if you are not getting it, ms get no money, if you pirate it, ms get no money so your in a win win situation) , that way Microsoft still gets more bug reports and shizz.

The whole OS is different down to kernel level what do you want for it to be different?


People call it vista sp2 cause of glass I bet if they virtually gave you the same thing and made a solid looking ui people would consider it different.

Don't forget about low system requirements, multi-touch, better kernel and boot speed improvements.

I think Windows 7 would be worth buying. :yes:

Windows 7 is totally different from Vista. Too bad it has problems with wireless internet right now but other than that it is much better than Vista in every aspect. The superbar wins it all for me :).

Like Eye Pie Rate said, if you can't afford it don't buy it.

Why does every f**king thread you post in regarding purchasing of software end with you promoting piracy.

We get it. You pirate. Good for. You're not special. Tons of people do it. You'll eventually grow up and see how hypocritical it is to condone the piracy of software while expecting a pay check where you work. Nobody gives a shit about what you do on your computer, so please, stop sharing. You're not "cool."

Nope. That's a Win-Lose situation in both ways.

Microsoft don't get money = no windows 7.

Then that becomes a Lose-Lose situation.

Also, (Y) to the poster above.

You have much to learn my friend.
YES, I AM A HYPOCRITE

What you gonna do sue me?
Shit at least I know myself, I AM A HYPOCRITE, there you go again.
I don't do it to be cool, I do it to annoy little brown nosing pussies such as yourself.

So, we get it. You don't like people saying they pirate. You don't like people using thier free speech.
Lets blow things out of proportion here, YOU ARE A NAZI!

There you go with that free speech bullshit. Free speech doesn't exist. The only free speech protected under the constitution of the United States is political speech. You can't go outside and start screaming "shit, shit, shit, shit, shit" at the top of your lungs. You'll be arrested. You also can't try and promote criminal activity (like piracy). So, as it seems, YOU have much to learn.

And the whole "YOU ARE A NAZI" retard rhetoric just proves how much of an idiot you really are. If you think freedom of speech exists in the literal form that you can say whatever the f**k you want to say, you are an uneducated, idealistic fool. When you have nothing to combat what people say, you call them a "NAZI." It's typical idiotic 16 year old bullshit.

@Tiosped I bet you haven't even installed Windows 7 beta yet. Go give it a try. It will change your opinion.
