    Is Windows 7 just Vista SE?

    I don't know that's why I ask.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    Behavior's a bit different. And so am I.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.

    It seems pretty much the same to me, even though others seem to think it's an improvement.

    There hasn't been a dramatic change in Windows since Windows 95 hit the market, but v.7 does some things noticeably faster, and configures some things differently. So it's like 95 ->98. If you considered that to be 95 SE, this will probably strike you the same.

    Even thought they are the same, I will probably buy it. Why? Because I need to buy Vista, so I might as well buy 7 when it comes out instead

    I think it's very similar, perhaps a polished version of Vista as I'm not sure they've actually implemented any major O/S changes (that were supposed to be in Vista) like WinFS etc

    Others?

    PS. This must be history repeating itself!! http://www.techzonez.com/forums/show...ight=microsoft

    I haven't seen anything in vista or 7 that I actually want or need. There is some fluffy stuff I quite like but it's pretty useless from a computing angle - just a waste of CPU power, like aero, desktop background switching. One thing I can see might be desirable to some people is the parental controls feature in Vista which is much more granular than previous attempts at such a thing. The black screen of death thing is a deal breaker too, that don't happen with XP.

    I'm noticing a faster startup and less memory used overall. I'm also finding tweaks to the overall end-user experience eliminated a few annoyances with Vista.

    Vista should called 'Windows-oops!'

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig
