Windows Now that Windows 7 is more or less finalised on the feature side of things, with the release candidate around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to look back upon what we thought Windows 7 would be - and what we actually hoped Windows 7 would be. So, I dove into our article and comment archive to see how many of our hopes, dreams, and predictions came true.

If Microsoft is lucky 7 will be as big a hit as Windows 98.


Really? Windows 98 is that last version of any MS operating system that I've ever bought, and after having had used Linux for 5 years, 98 was a HUGE disappointment. Still fiddling with 8.3 file names? No genuine user accounts with strict access controls? No SMP? No built-in firewall? Once, it displayed a message saying that IE had crashed. I wasn't running IE at the time.

I am sure 7 will be much better. But please don't let 98 (even for its time) be your standard of excellence.
