Windows Back in 1983, 25 years ago, the world was quite different. The market for the home computer - still a fairly new market - was wide open, but Apple was about to make a major splash with its Macintosh. It was also the year in which a company from Redmond first introduced its "Windows" operating system. What is this Windows you speak of?

Windows was bad its first decade, extremely buggy in its second, and its third has been an embarrassing failure with Vista, especially when juxtaposed to the exponential growth of Apple and GNU/Linux on PCs.

And now that Vista's been left for dead by Ballmer, Microsoft pulls the same ol' hat out of the box: LET'S HYPE THE NEXT VERSION OF VAPORS!! (Win7)

Let's not.
