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.

I created an account just to post to this article. Your article is excellent and in many ways I had thought the same as you. I have no knowledge in computer engineering or any Windows 7 development stuff and even I know that the number of threads does not mean a whole lot, or anything relevant to the kernel of the OS.

Also, everyone, or anybody writing on a website as big as Infoworld, should know by now that Windows now uses as much RAM as possible, since idle RAM is wasted RAM. How could he not know this?

This is just bad press. I don't understand why websites are doing benchmarking at this stage of the game. If the benchmarks come out positive, I guess they are worth showing. But if they are negative, there's still a whole lot of room for improvement. We aren't even in beta yet for pete's sake.

Good post by OSNews. I don't want to see any of these crap articles again just so they can reach Digg, slashdot, or whatever a few more times...
