Windows 7 is what Vista should always have been...
Now that people are aware that they screwed up Vista, they are trying to buy people's minds and make them forget with massive communication and cool "geek" articles for Windows 7.

come on...

you ain't fooling nobody, or are you ...

I dunno... I've used Vista (w/SP1) and didn't have any issues with it. Though Vista was more about under the hood changes, looks like Windows 7 is going for the outer layer. As for me, I don't really care. The main draw to Window is (and always has been) what I can run on it, so as far as I'm concerned, XP is still perfectly adequate, and probably will be for the entire life cycle of Windows 7. That's not saying that I won't upgrade, but it's not like XP users are gonna be shit outta luck anytime soon, so they don't have to move if they don't want to.

Judging by the numberof articles lately that praises an OS that is in its very early stages and years away from production they've fooled a lot of people.

That's not a very profound statement, since the same could be said for any series of OSes. OSX Puma is what OSX Cheetah should've been. And that's literally true, as OSX Cheetah was literally beta-ware, and totally abysmal in terms of speed, stability, and polish. OSX Puma was the first usable version of OSX, yet OSX Jaguar is what Puma should've been. And on and on. Your statement that OS version N+1 is what OS version N should've been is almost an axiom and as such adds nothing to the conversation.

Windows Vista isn't what XP should have been though.
