Windows 7 looks nice...

BUT then so does all the food you see in magazine ads. Of course those all turn out to be either plastic or glazed with something entirely unedible. I want to be optimistic about Windows 7 but it is difficult when I haven't even made the switch to Vista yet. XP was functionally a great upgrade from Windows 2000 and XP functionally still meets all my computing needs and all Vista would do for me is force me to buy a faster computer. I will admit that the UI demo below indeed looks nice but it's like judging a filet mignon from a photograph. I want to be able to dig into this OS and see how intuitive it is from a techie's perspective... well that won't likely happen for some time. In the meanwhile enjoy this flashy new taskbar.

So I should just continue clinging desperately to Windows XP. Actually that sounds like an excellent plan right there.

Hey, have a happy birthday tomorrow.

...and you pretty much guarantee you'll lose me anytime you talk about operating systems.

I read in one of the free IT magazines that get dumped by the bushel on my desk (Information Week or Redmond) how everyone was this way about Windows 2000 and XP...XP being bloated and "Fisher Price Windows" and 2000 being much better. Now we all pretty much love XP. Makes me wonder, are we ever going to get to the point where we are talking about Vista, saying what a wonderful OS it was, compared to the next iteration?

No, probably not. There was Windows ME.
