We can assume Microsoft would not make organizing files dramatically better we get many of the same features with better indexing of files, rather than moving to a whole new database structure we will suffer using the old shit some more. Bill gates has spoken! AMEN!
vista will run on old PCs. That will end everything! It’s going to look and run quite differently on those older systems. As if users of older PC’s should not miss out on new features! They are nuts! Vista does need a whole new PC BUT as it runs applications developed for win-XP it wont be interesting to write new things for it. It means ERRORS generated by different platforms, specially the older platforms will have tremendous errors Programmers will make software work on XP, 2000 and vista. They wont bother to write a vista-version but we get exactly the same. Not a power system with powerful applications. A power system with everything disabled that didn’t run on the ancient 0.5 GB PC’s. You will have to try if things work each time you change something OR you will never know how it stopped working. Different performance on each system.
If we should develop Longhorn applications on a P3 you bought the new PC for nothing. If your lucky you can even run the application!
Google is diving into OOO Open office, firefox and thunderbird are really nice and Opera is even better, a user friendly Linux OS with 1 GHz will fly compared to the Windows Vista P4 art of state.
Look at msn, outlook, IE ms-word. Doesn’t that look a bit unstable to you? The rest of what they make is the same style of assembly… eh I mean compiler.
