Windows I never thought it was possible, but as it turns out, Microsoft has managed to produce some pretty good commercials for its brand new operating system, Windows 7. They are quite product-oriented, and carry the slogan "I'm a PC and Windows 7 was my idea".

I got a free copy of 7 at university yesterday and gave it a try. Ugh... Seriously, does anyone actually *like* this OS?


Yes. To be fair, I liked Vista as well, although I spend about 60% of my time on KDE 3.5.x (and will until KDE 4.x supports dual monitors as well as KDE 3.5 does).

For that matter, I even like OSX, although I think the Finder hasn't gotten far enough away from NeXT.

So, do you have any specific complaints? Are you a Mac User stuck in a strange land? Or are you one of these people who knows far better than Microsoft was services and DLL's you need, so you went in and disabled a bunch of stuff only to find out you either couldn't, or now your computer doesn't work? Or does UAC fill you with a sense of dread?

Or perhaps, you're in a maze of twisty passages, all alike?
