Windows Vista fate

In this forum my post dated 8/5/07 I wrote as under:-
"Will Vista meet the same fate as ME?"
Some of the members came very strong against it. What they now think about it in the light of Windows 7 launch?

I think the biggest boost for W7 is that its is apparently primed to make max usage of multicore CPU's if that is correct a modern quadcore CPU with hyperthreading should make a differance.

Vista is a "less good" product than W7, and they are hardly going to say it (Vista) is better now are they.
My "user experience" of Vista has been that it is far and away better and more stable than XP ever was. W7 will build on that as it is based on Vista to a large extent and should hit the ground running.
I will be absolutely amazed to hear of even the slightest hiccup, incompatability or driver issue with W7... won't you ? ;)

Now Microsoft admits that Vista is no good product. Here is a link posted by PCA in the news colum.

Pine Man, you are so right. I too have been running Windows RC7 on 3 Pcs now since it was released. I also have two PCs on XP and one on Vista
W7 is sort of lighter on its feet than Vista-and a big advance on XP. I appreciate the way it sets your hardware drivers and networks up quite effortlessly.
Also the speed with which it opens applications up. All PCs in this house will be on Windows 7 come end October

I have always been a supporter of Vista. Maybe I was lucky but I never seemed to experience any of the problems complained of by others and it seems to have got even better as times goes on BUT if you like Vista I'm sure you'll love Windows 7. I have been running it next to Vista (on a separate disk) on the same PC for about three months and it is much, much better IMHO. I just can't wait until my copy is delivered on the 22 October.

Windows ME was a disaster from launch till its end where as vista got off to a bad start but was kicked into touch in a reasonable time and I think its the best so far[not tried w7 yet] XP was good from the start but no match to vista now.

Vista's biggest problem, IMO, was that it is/was so fat. When it was first launched it needed a hardware spec that was considerably more powerful than most middle-of-the-road computers offered, at the time.

Over the past 2-3 years, hardware power has caught up, and Vista can now be run satisfactorily on the great majority of mass market computers.

I haven't yet experienced W7, but if reports are to be believed it places no more, and perhaps less, demand on the hardware. If that's true, then it should satisfy the mass market, and the upgrade enthusiasts.

I'm looking forward to it.
