Everything I’ve read points to a Vista do-over. 7 supposedly runs fast and light, even on old hardware (Plll). I think they see the netbook wave as a major threat. Netbook sales are through the roof, and they can barely run Vista basic. The two choices are XP or linux, and both choices are a threat to MS.
And why was it formerly known as Blackcomb and Vienna? Who thinks up these seemingly bizarre non sequiturs, then decides on Windows Digit?
“Will it increase speed, compatability, manageability, security, and connectability? Or will it be a hulking overstuffed lumbering piece of digital doggie doo?”
From past experience I’m betting on the latter.
Otherwise, find a Linux or BSD flavor.
HP is pissing me off also. I’ve got a 1012 laser printer that has no driver specific to Vista yet and I’m told one will most likely not be developed due to cost.
The “generic” driver has limited functionality. Guess I’ll have to live with it until I replace this 3 year old printer. Printer works excellent and I’m reluctant to throw it away just yet.

Must be a record or Microsoft is having their Christmas party today
Windows 98 is faster, from the South Park movie:
I'm going with "Hulking overstuffed lumbering piece of digital doggie doo" for $100, Alex.

Well, now there's one I do know the answer to. Everytime Redmond comes out with a new OS, I fight the urge to show them a digit or two.
