You sir, apparently don't know the difference between an OS and a Service Pack.
Well, I wouldn't say MS has learned from it's mistakes. I feel this could be nothing more than Vista service pack 3...or at least could have been. If you're telling Win7 is more secure than Vista, more stable, more everything, why would they not push this in a Vista service pack and give me that functionality now instead of making me purchase a new OS? The only reason I can think of is greed. MS needs more money and wants everyone to buy a new OS. If you had to ask whether you could be approved for an upgrade from Vista...Suze Orman would say "DENIED!"
Yes, Windows 7 is built up on the foundations of Vista, but the code is a lot different, and the kernel has been reworked.
Do you know there's no new kernel in Win7?? KERNEL Also, search Google and become familiar with Win7 first, before you post. So you're telling me they coded it differently and reworked the kernel to LOOK LIKE and FUNCTION LIKE....UMM VISTA? Come on man!! Why does everyone have to pick stuff out of a forum post just to bitch? People take things out of context. I know what the difference between an OS and service pack is. Do you know what code changed? I'll be holding my breath for that answer.
Then don't purchase it, who is forcing you? Nobody's gonna rob you of your money and make you pay for it.
Umm, I will go out and buy it. I have the money. I'm just saying they're greedy bastards. Why are you stepping at me with this from my forum post? Come on man! Again, people latching on to one thing in someones post, just to complain about or start a fight. There's no fight here. I'm correct, so please move on.
