Windows It's October 22 today. A completely random date in the grand scheme of things (we Dutch lost a big naval battle to the Ming dynasty on October 22 1633), but it also happens to be the release date of the newest version of Windows - Windows 7. Since Windows is still the most popular desktop operating system out there, this is pretty big news.

Because of some software we develop, i was part of the Windows 7 beta testing since the beginning.

I even got a FREE complimentary ULTIMATE license.

I have been using the final version since it was released to MSDN.

And, as much as i want to like it, i'm desperately waiting the right time to get back to XP.

Windows 7 feels like a complicated Windows XP.

Almost all either takes more time, more clicks, is differently done, or all together, than XP.

I don't get why is so difficult for Microsoft to do refinements to Windows XP, like apple does for OSX, or Linux.

They try so hard to change all that, it ends up so horrible.

The good thing is that it is better than Vista.

The bad thing is that it is worst than XP.

It is not the WORST Windows i ever used, that distinction goes to Vista, but it is the 2nd one.
