Default Windows 7 - 'best version of Windows ever'

Interesting article.

I think that its already been revealed, SIN. On the developer side, this is what MS is screaming. On the consumer side, they are advertising this to be a clean break from Vista.

"Windows 7 - 'best version of Windows ever' "....Not with that lame taskbar they are using in Beta 1. It's terribly implemented. I hope that gets major changes before RTM.

Also, with the current beta 1, surround sound on X-Fi cards is not working.

What's wrong with the taskbar?

And wouldn't it have been weird if he had come out and said "windows 7 is going to be the crappiest windows ever!" - I mean why even release something if you've already done better in the past?

Well, thats great if you like the new taskbar, but its quite confusing to me. There are several articles on the net pointing out the same issues I have with it, namely the fact its confusing to tell which program is a pinned one and which is not. I think if they would just leave quick launch in place instead of trying to integrate it then my complaints regarding the
taskbar at least would resolve.

Quite true. Crappiest Windows ever award goes to Windows Millenium IMHO. Vista overall with SP1 is actually pretty good now. XP is perhaps the overall best and Windows 2000 was the most stable. That OS never crashed.

I agree on the toolbar - I don't like it all that much. Maybe it will grow on me though, we'll see.

I actually like the new taskbar. But I think that there should be an option to have the new look and a classic option. It does resemble the Mac OS X dock IMO so I'm quite fond of that idea
