Who needs Vista, when Windows 7 is coming next year.
 
It looks like Microsoft doesn't have to much hope for Vista. So they may be releasing Windows 7 next year instead of 2010 when it was suppose to be.

Three years is ancient in the Linux world. Most distros release ever three to six months. So I am not surprised windows life cycle will become shorter.

I don't know if windows 7 is gonna be the great desktop os or not. The modular, subscription to what you need could be good or bad.

There's been talk of releasing early for a while now. Here's hoping it's a reasonably worthy OS.

Engadget thought he might have been talking about just the beta or something

I don't think Windows 7 will come out next year. Not enough time has passed to make any significant changes whatsoever.

Who cares if it comes out next year? Windows used to be refreshed every 3 years. 95, 98, ME, XP? XP lasted for an unprecedented long time.

It has nothing to do with them not having any hope for Vista.

Exactly!! XP was the first OS in a long time to go that long without a new OS.

+1

if you look at the old releases, it was always this way. tbh, the large time gap between XP and Vista probably contributed to the initial lack of adoption of Vista. everyone cried "it's such an unnecessary release, youre forcing it down our throats." but if you look at windows 95, 98, and ME, theyre practically all the same thing lol. (except ME was a giant POS lol)

Oh there is. He can see LCD flicker. ::retard::

I think the trouble is he sees tearing with vsync off, turns vsync on and things slow down. Obviously hasn't discovered Triple Buffering or D3D Overrider.

I've have those very same things you just mentioned on and with 60hz, it was still pathetic. And whoever doesn't run Triple Buffering while vsync is on is a complete retard.

It's not flickering, it's screen lag, like after images. My solution fixes that problem in XP. I was just informing people of my discovery. I SEE the difference, so it's not just talk. And Vista does have a bug, and the current solutions are not addressing it. Vista doesn't hold refresh rates, it's a known fact it doesn't. And that's a pretty serious issue for gamers.
