Heres a screen shot of windows version 7.........
I agree I used OS/2 Warp 4.0 it was an excellent product it reminded me of Linux in some ways but to think Microsoft co developed OS/2 with IBM until Windows 3.0 sales took off....I think it would have been a better tech progression than the Windows/Fat path Microsoft chose to follow.Just think how good a Warp 8 would have been today stable secure etc:doh:I remember using windows 3.1 when got my first PC. But I soon after saw OS/2 and quickly jumped ship. It wasn't hard to see how far ahead of Windows it was..
Indeed. Meet the new Windows, same as the old Windows. A while ago it was stated and confirmed in many online sources that the mini core project has been dumped and the core of the forthcoming Windows 7 is the same old Windows Vista core, with some new eye candy and some mouse gestures. It'll still be the same bloated, unstable system, it'll still have the infamous Windows registry, it'll still have the dll hell and so on.Just saw a nws item on a tech site the other day where a beta tester of the "new" Windows 7 did a comparison with Vista and guess what ! It was exactly the same in terms of performance. In fact, it even had the same processes with the same number of threads, etc.
So there you go, Windows 7 = Vista with a new set of bling and the same dodgy engine underneath.
Just make sure it can handle Flash. Some of the really cheap ones can't (If its running xp you'll be fine.I am looking at getting a Netbook to replace an old dated laptop that is only used to surf the net, facebook, fourms, ebay etc, mainly that my girls use,
I am only going to purchase a cheap one, now't special but notice they have either Windows XP or Windows 7. so having remembered this thread and still unsure, any advice on what would be the better option ?
I've seen a Samsung one with built in Bluetooth that appeals (so the girls can upload their partying pictures onto facebook easily ! ) for around £260,
But it's the Xp or 7 that I'm not sure of ?
Anyone explain the best option please ?
