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.

Windows users [...] hate change, the more used to something they are the more they hate it. The task bar is a fundamental part of using the os, and people are going to be flipping out over it going away like nobodies business.


Here in Germany, we're always a bit "after the time" when it comes to "Windows". Most people use "the good 'XP'" here. Having seen many of them abandoning Vista from their newly purchased PCs and reinstalling some pirated copy of "XP" makes me think that if "Windows 7" enters the field here, they'll find it unintuitive, annoying, and will then hate it, followed by a wipe-off and "back to my good 'XP'". Even if MICROS~1 would insist on having made the life easier for their users, the users theirselves won't realize this. It seems to be easier for them to fiddle around with incompatible drivers and workarounds then to change the point of view about how to launch an application.
