Windows Users remained stymied today by endless reboots after trying to upgrade their PCs to Windows 7, according to messages posted on Microsoft's support forum. An answer has yet to be found for all users, who began reporting the problem last Friday after watching the upgrade stall two-thirds of the way through the process.

Apple seem to get things right - not sure what they do differently...



That's what keeps me coming back to OS X time and again. Though it has faults as anything so complex will, that OS is the most elegant and useful I've ever worked in. Even BeOS, my favorite from my pre-Mac days, doesn't come close, though I am very excited about Haiku. I don't know what their secret is but they continue to ship the only OS that truly meets all my needs without fuss. (OK, one pet peeve: No really good PSX emulators, but that's not really Apple's fault).

I'm using Windows 7 RC for now and it's amazing apart from shitty Bluetooth support, but I'm saving up for a Mac mini. Though, I am tempted to buy a Snow Leopard retail disc and take a chance with OSX86. It's the OS more than the hardware I care about anyway, and my main system is on par with the new mini as well as easier to upgrade.
