Windows Steven Sinofsky, who oversees Windows 7 development, has really committed to keeping us in the loop on the new Engineering Windows 7 blog. In today's post, "Measuring the Scale of a Release," he discusses whether or not Windows 7 will be a "major" or "minor" release. It's a pretty good piece that really makes some good points. Read on for our perspective.

Kind a crappy points you make to be honest. In first I think it's up to HW maker to make sure drivers work. Keep mind that Windows7 will use Vista driver model so they have plenty of time. If some HW maker makes bad drivers, don't buy that shit.

In second you kind a shoot yourself on foot. First you claim that you want something with both Shadow copy and Media Center but in the end you say make two versions. Do you think professional people want Media Center or regular users something like Shadow Copy? No, also most people will buy Vista, even if it's Ultimate, as OEM and that costs 160€. In reality there is only 3 versions of Vista for regular user Home Premium, Business and Ultimate. I think they are well focused althou Ultimate is overlypriced if you buy it in box version, which no sane person should.

On third point I really started to think have you ever even used Vista. Seriously Vista has backup solution that works automaticly and is easy enough to setup.
