Editorial Yesterday, a story made its rounds across the internet. It was picked up by many large news websites, and I'm sure it will be quoted by people until eternity. It was published by a large website, looked all fancy, it had multiple pages - it looked like it was really something. However, anyone with even the remotest bit of knowledge knows that the article was a collection of complete and utter bogus.

Holy War

Thom, you really seem to get yourself into a Holy War here with OSNews. Perhaps you should step back from that a little.

It is right that thread count, memory allocation etc. are bogus measurements (your rebuttal about what WinMin actually is meant to be sounds bogus to me, too; as if you would really know the kind of reorganization they are doing and how it would show or not). But your article tells more than that observation. It tells that you really so goddamn want to believe in a shiny bright new Windows 7 and you want others to believe in that, too. Same as educating everybody on how well Vista finally shaped up.

Save yourself some credibility and stay more to the facts. Fact is: I wait for MS to do a release, before I judge/condemn/defend it whatsoever. You are better off doing the same.
