Default Re: Microsoft: We Need for 6 Windows 7 SKUs

People didn't like XP and Vista for different reasons, XP was a security nightmare from the start, Vista had performance issues from the start and still has. I still dont like XP for the same reasons, the UI is Ugly, the theme is like a plastic kids toy. Windows 2000 was the best in my view and Vista is and was a total failure.

Windows 7 has better performance for a number of reasons, they have no OS except XP that can cope with hardware like netbooks and EeePC's. Windows 7 is a answer to Microsoft's dropping market share and mindshare which is going slowly to OS X and Linux. It won't happen as fast as Internet Explorer's share which is dropping fast but it's a fact Microsoft just dont want decline and they have had that for years now.
