Editorial Yesterday, a story made its rounds across the internet. It was picked up by many large news websites, and I'm sure it will be quoted by people until eternity. It was published by a large website, looked all fancy, it had multiple pages - it looked like it was really something. However, anyone with even the remotest bit of knowledge knows that the article was a collection of complete and utter bogus.

Win7 is Microsoft's last chance

Windows 7 may not be a "revolutionary new OS" but it's very likely Microsoft's last chance to hold on to about 25% or more of its market share who will be looking to jump between now and then. We've already been down this road of better-faster-more secure with Vista, and if Microsoft burns its customers again, GNU/Linux and OS X will reap new users from the disaster.

As Holwerda suggests, Win7 will be more like Win98 SE, as in Vista Second Edition. To believe anything more is setting yourself up for deep disappointment.

Eh, a bit more than Win98 SE I think. The interface for one is being completely reworked; that alone is huge.
