Windows 7 UI Preview

Posted 29 October 2008 - 02:56 AM

This interface seems particularly familiar, glad they haven't come up with something totally stupid though.

Here's another link from Ars. :^:


Also, the coolest new features here.

It isn't really new, the plans for Windows 7 have been around for along time and the screenshots look alot like Vista.

Well it's not totally new...we have seen some demos of it before, but this is the first in depth preview.

They have basically nicked the best bits from linux, apple and vista and tried to please everyone. :D

Of coarse, Vista wasn't taken well by the majority of it's users and they want to get them back on board.

Ya, I have vista at home also, and it sucks. I don't even boot into it anymore, just use it for when I can't get something to work in Linux. It looks like the UI they're trying to mimic some more stable OS's... but then again when was the last stable OS release from M$, the 90s (and I am not talking about windows)?

Windoze 95 ftw; I always switch off those crappy snazzy features - they just slow it down.

As per your links :

Quote

Ars Technica's coverage includes confirmation from Microsoft that Windows 7 will be based on the core work carried out for Vista, with no major changes to the underlying architecture of the OS. Instead, Microsoft is concentrating on improving the user experience via an enhanced UI which carries on the work done in Vista's Aero.


Awesome, so rather than address the shoddy OS that seems to be a constant target for performance issues from both MS & Linux users, they'll keep that technology & instead work on developing more UI bells & whistles.

You can't stuff 3 pounds of shit into a 2 pound bag.

Of course you can, it's called Windows.

& for $189.99 or $189.88 (at walmart) you can own a copy. Of course you will need 8 gigs of Ram on a Quad Core processor, but for Direct X11 it is all worth it.

Also from that day forward Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft but instead they encourage all users to upgrade for $98.00 per license. Driver updates will be delivered via patch in SP1 which will be out 8 months after its initial release.

Stayed tuned for OS XI - aka Monkey

Well, for Windows 7 they should do something close to what XP used to be...a XP refreshed, powerful, and a serious concurrent for Linux/MAC OS. Microsoft must do something about the slow system, about the functionality and security...

For me Vista was the perfect model of a bad operating system.

They try and cater for the home lamen market which I suppose needs to be done; they should give you an option on install asking you whether your a n00b or not lol

Why has Pyscho not chimed in on this yet..

He must not be here today. He is like 1 of 123,498 registered users who thinks Vista is god's gifts to OS's. :P
