    Microsoft has created a blog dedicated to Windows 7, the upcoming (in 2010, according to Microsoft) successor to Windows Vista. The first post in the blog, Microsoft said that first in-depth technical details will come at the Professional Developers Conference (PDC) and the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC), both scheduled for October.

    i havent gotten any spyware on vista, actually ever since the popup blocker and windows defender. vista bitching has calmed down as single core procesors are slowly dieing out and being replaced by beefier dual cores and more ram. we should have the same or more bitching with windows 7

    I'd say that working on a streamlined user experience should be top priority. A lot of the things I find annoying in Vista could be solved with a better UI design. Hopefully I'll be able to get on the beta, and actually provide some feedback for a change. I was on the Vista beta but my only feedback was "it doesn't install on my machine."

    Vista bashing is so old... check out the people who hated vista and tried "mojave" and loved it... only to find out it was in fact VISTA haha

    only issue I've ever gotten in Vista is my logitech webcam ... logitech has NO driver support whatsoever for "old" products (this webcam came out 3 months after vista did btw...)


    Vista x64 rocks.

    The issue I had with Vista was folders settings were not saving. I found the fix here.
