Title: Windows 7 (late 2009?)
Post by: SonicFan23 on August 10, 2008, 10:35:56 AM
I recently read something on Google news that states that Windows 7 is very much on track and is scheduled for release in late 2009-early 2010. I personally think it's too early for them to look on to a new OS with vista still not being very great. Anyways heres the article

Windows unit head Bill Veghte said on Thursday that Windows 7 development remains on track.

The company has officially said it would ship by January 2010, but top executives have also said from time to time that it would be done by the end of 2009.

"The product is tracking very, very well," Veghte said. "We are committed and looking good, relative to our commitment--(shipping Windows 7) three years from general availability of Windows Vista."

Microsoft has released few details on the product, largely assuring customers that it would be making big architectural changes and that it will have a new multitouch user interface.

Most of Veghte's talk, as expected, was on Windows Vista and how Microsoft sees a large perception gap. Veghte showed the Mojave Project, first detailed here, in which users predisposed against Vista reacted favorably when shown Vista when it was presented under the guise of being a new version of Windows, code-named Mojave.

Even outside focus groups, Veghte said that not only are customers buying the operating system, but more are liking it, pointing to recent internal figures showing that 89 percent of users said they were "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with the product. Some 83 percent said they would recommend Vista to a friend or family member, Veghte said.

He also demoed Internet Explorer 8, which he said would be released in final form later this year. An early beta was shown off at the Mix '08 trade show in the spring.

Update: In the closing Q and A session, CEO Steve Ballmer was asked what Windows 7 would look like, but declined to offer any new details saying to do so would be a "no-win" situation.

"It's going to look great; It's going to be quite compatible," he said, to some laughter. "If I wanted to start selling Windows 7 today, we'd start selling windows 7 today. Then you'd complain."

He did reiterate what has already been said, saying that Windows 7 is designed to avoid making big changes. "The design point is compatible form the get-go in large measure," he said.

Yeah, It's a bad idea, people manage with XP and Vista is a rip off, after all those complaints they should realise they need to put more time into it, we don't want a second Vista

Post by: Spex1992 on August 10, 2008, 11:15:58 AM
Yeah I think it's a little too early, Mircrosoft should really focus on improving Vista before they go to a new OS.

Vista is no good they need to work on it a lot more than think about a new OS,but for me I'm sticking with XP


Title: Re: Windows 7 (late 2009?)
Post by: Luma on August 10, 2008, 11:33:28 AM
I have vista on the comp I'm on now and It's not THAT bad, but since Vista is new and expencive and such nobody really makes for example cracks for Vista to play a game, Everything is made specially for Windows XP, nonetheless I agree Vista is horrible

But John, There's not much to say, Everyone thinks it will be a disaster  :D

This might sound strange, but I would be very happy if the launch/release of Windows 7 is delayed, because that means they are improving it.

I can't wait for this,but i'm sure they're gonna do service packs for vista


Title: Re: Windows 7 (late 2009?)
Post by: Luma on August 13, 2008, 11:18:15 AM
To be honest they should've been doing Service Packs a long time ago since there are enough complaints about Vista, I think they thought : Screw that, they will have to buy a newer version of Windows sooner or later.

I have a solution for all of everyones operating system problems. Get Linux...duhhh. Its free and it will do almost anything you tell it to do without any problems.  If you want to support my dad get True64 Unix. My dad made it so you could enter commands into it. (my dad programs the kernel) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_kernel  The Kernel is the base level of your computer.  Without the work my dad does your OS would not work at all.

well I have Vista Home Premium on both my laptop and on my desktop, it runs well on my laptop which has 2GB RAM and dual core processor, but its quite slow on my desktop with an AMD Athlon 64 and 1GB RAM they need to iron out the bugs before they can move onto a new OS

I agree. i cant believe even with a core 2 duo you're still saying it's laggy. i have a P4 2.4GHz with 2GB RAM and it's slow for me too (at least comparing with Windows XP). I hear Windows 7 won't be as big of a resource hog so im looking forward to that. Good Luck, Microsoft.

i have a laptop with windows vista home premium an intel core 2 duo processor, 2 gb ram and my laptop is running quite fast although the performance has gone down since i brought it in may,
microsoft are releasing a new os too soon they should just take time and make a better OS, i agree its too early!!

I unfortunately have Vista and I think they should definitely work out their problems with Vista out first. Microsoft just might turn out like Sega. They'll continue abandoning all their software and stuff, and soon they will lose all trust from their consumers and it will be their downfall once they finally release something good.

I don't know what I think of windows 7. I mean, I have an XP which I use more often (it gives me less problems) but it crapped out over the summer and I had to use a Vista, which I've gotten used to (I actually kinda like it now)
I don't like the Windows movie maker that came with my vista, but that doesn't bug me so much (I just use teh XP ;D)

I really don't know. Vista lags, but my XP has low ram...I would be OK if W7 was just a faster Vista...but I'm just WEIRD like that...

Dude, who cares if WMM is wack on Vista. You've got Vegas now. Vista is trying to be secure, but with that it also becomes more restricted to teen/child users. I know it's like that too in XP, but at least in XP its as simple as clicking a few buttons for my dad to let me install something. Where as for Vista, you have to jump through hoops to install something (not literally, but doing so would be easier). That's my main issue with Vista.

Ok guys, There has been a Pre-beta release and everyone that has it said it was the most awesome thing ever. This means Microsoft is like Sega. They rushed something just to show people that hey haven't stopped working on games, technology, etc. In other words. They probably rushed Vista OS just to show that they have not stopped working on OS. And they are now introducing a really cool OS, Windows Se7en (what its really called lol).


Sega had rushed Sonic Next Gen so they could show that they have not stopped working on sonic-next gen. They then released the AWESOME Sonic Unleashed!

I read somewhere that Windows 7 uses a completely new interface and gets rid of the taskbar, instead it has a little "ribbon" on the desktop which you use to run your programs. Such a thing would confuse me totally. ???

I've used Beta 1 of Windows 7 (i have it) and it is very very compatible for the early stage that it's in, and it also looks really nice. It looks like it's going to be great. As for Vista, I love it now because it's very fast on my new PC :)

i have just read many things about windows seven and all the reviews and stuff are positive aparently it is more snappy than vista and more faster and does not crash a lot, the only problem with it would be that it is in beta stage and there could be some bugs that have not been discoverd yet, even though i dont trust reviews that nuch because i beleive that they are all biased, i am going to get the free beta version on the microsoft website and see for myself.

...wow, if only the anti-Sonic gamers had that mindset...
Anyway, back on topic.
I think that Windows 7 sounds like a good Idea, but they're scrapping a lot of the basic programs that are currently on Vista and XP. (like windows movie maker)


Title: Re: Windows 7 (late 2009?)
Post by: loopdeer on January 17, 2009, 03:06:31 PM
Well actually heres something you should now they probably gave up on Vista and the Windows 7 beta (Which I'm usin it) Windows 7 Ultimate beta is only 16 gb compared to the previous 50gb and its faster plus mega faster with internet explorer. Right now compatibility is suckish, but can you suspect much from a beta? ;D

Then your lucky, my dad's internet thing in his comp hit the bucket cauz vista. He's also got the blue screen over 5 times now. He installed Vista on my comp thankfully nothing has happened to me yet. The sad part is that Microsoft isn't going to improve vista cause they pretty much just threw it under the carpet. Windows 7 is supposed to be a lot better according to them. They put so much money into advertising Vista that they for got to save money for improving it. I doubt they will make that mistake again.

They did in fact release a trial. I don't have it, but I have seen some people with it. Look's pretty good. But most of the games they want to play aren't able to work considering the fact that they are using an unknown operating system.
