Windows I'm sure you're all still (sadly) familiar with the recent 'debate' I had with InfoWorld's Randall Kennedy, which detailed a lot of silly things. The seed of that discussion was planted with Kennedy's first article which, among other things, claimed that Windows 7 performed similarly to Windows Vista (meaning, slower than XP). Leaving the thread count discussion behind, Kennedy did include a benchmark which showed that Windows 7 performed similar to Windows Vista. There's a new benchmark out now, comparing a slightly more recent build of Windows 7 to Vista RTM/SP1 and XP SP3, and in these tests, Windows 7 blows all of those out of the water.

I wonder what windows 7 system requirements will be.

I realize in a few more years xp wont be able to phone

home. I wonder when that happens how will it affect apple

linux an bsd an the other oses.

A few people i talked to said they would goto linux

instead of buying a new computer.

Look at the computer walmart was selling intel

p4 1.5 ghz

Do we really need 3.0 or 4.0 ghz to use windows 7

if so ill be switch to linux or bsd
