Too much Windows 7! Too much Ubuntu! Too much OS X! Too much whining! If you don't want to read an article DON"T READ IT! Windows 7 is news, get over it. I'm interested in it, many people are interested in it. Just because you are not, doesn't give you the right to try to limit what other people want to read, please, just don't read the article.

Man, you'd think that this site should change it's name to Complaining News, people complain about the articles, the mod system, the editors, even people complaining about the complainers! (that's me, for those in the cheap seats)

I'm interested in Windows 7 but I'm not interested in making love to it.

Come on, 2 weeks ago, we got one article to tell how they would call it and one article to tell why they called it Windows 7. This is not what people expect from news aggregators. Now this article is actually interesting, but this should have been the only one. I know you get dollars by posting Windows articles but this is too much. I expect no more than one article per month for an OS that is not available but 1 article out of 3 talk about Windows 7 these days! If you want to know everything that is going on about Windows 7, Read the blogs on Microsoft sites, register to mailing lists but there is no need to post 3 article every single day with new screenshots.

Seriously though, the number of Windows 7 articles lately is quite staggering. It makes the flood of Ubuntu and OSX articles that happens on occasion look like a small forest stream.
And this for an OS that is not even remotely close to being released.

Love it or loathe it, it will be the next incarnation of the most widely used desktop OS and as such, is important and worth knowing about.

Personally, I don't think "overjoyed" is a healthy reaction to any operating system.

And the game begins again.

Microsoft: "We screwed up with our last release but dont use something else we have something up our sleeves. The next Windows will do everything better, you can even cook your mother in law with it"

Press: "Lets praise the glorious geniouses in Redmond and hail to the glory of the next Windows"

Users: WTF


After the release: Worst Windows ever...
