No, what I'm saying is that I hope Windows 7 will be bad so people will suffer so much that they will wake up form the inertia that's driving them right now. As bad as Vista is now, people still use it. So Windows 7 has to be worse in order to get people's attention.

It's not going to happen. MS could ship Abacus 3000 as the next "OS" and people would still buy it and try to do computing. MS is the computer.
